This is a great place to stay. We have stayed here on three different occasions. It is beautiful, quite and peaceful. The town is also quite and peaceful. We do not like the party scene, so this is a great place for us to stay as a couple. It is also a place we would have taken our children.

This hotel is a wonderful place to stay in Western North Carolina. With recent renovations, the rooms are just as good as any upscale hotel in a larger city although Dillsboro is a small quaint mountain town. Great staff which was top notch! The beds were very comfortable, but the best part of staying at this hotel is not what...

We recently spent one night in one of the King Bed Jacuzzi Suites. The hotel is being renovated, and the room was very nice with a balcony river front. When we arrived there was no one at the front desk. We had to wait about 10 minutes, but when they arrived we were promptly checked in to the room. The...

You have to drive past some not so attractive warehouses and a rail yard. But once at the Hotel the location is great. River on one side with a deck and rooms overlooking. Our room did not overlook the river but knew that when reserved. Our room on the road and parking lot side was very quiet don't think I...

We always stay at this Inn when we are in the area. The view is amazing, peaceful and clean! It is being remodeled right now, but it is still clean. I really love the color scheme in the rooms and the texture of the carpet.

This place feels like home. I have stayed here several times while visiting Bryson City and Cherokee, NC. It's only a short drive to Harrahs (about 5 or 6 miles). The front desk staff are always friendly and helpful. After staying there several times, they now remember me when I check in. The breakfast is very good with a variety...

My sister, daughter, niece, and I go to Dillsboro, NC each summer for a girls' trip and we always stay here. It's always very clean and the staff is very nice. The breakfast bar is wonderful and you couldn't ask for a better view of the river. We LOVE this hotel.

My favorite place to stay when I am in WNC. Great rooms on the river, pool and great breakfast! You can even put your own tube in the river and float down the Tuck. The staff is always friendly and makes sure your having a great time!

We had a river view room and are still talking about the view. This hotel is modern and beautiful. I am a stickler for cleanliness and believe me it was immaculate. The breakfast was not continental, it was DELICIOUS, pancakes, waffles, sausage etc. What a treat!! The property is amazing. What a beautiful stay!

What a wonderful setting! The staff is delightful and the location can't be beat. We even used the BBQ grill and picnic tables for a cookout for our group. Be sure to ask for a room overlooking the river--that way you can fbe lulled to sleep by the sound.
