“Very nice”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

Our room was facing the pool, although apparently the pool is only seasonal since it was closed this past December. Room was very clean and spacious. Location was very good, close and convenient to everything. We ate breakfast every morning at the hotel and it was definitely worth the $7 for the buffet.

Thank you, for your feedback and for taking the time to respond. I am so delighted that your stay with us was enjoyable and pleasant. We strive to provide superior customer service to our guest.

Our pool is an outdoor heated pool open seasonal. This past winter has been warmer than usually, but we needed to close the pool to do some repairs.

We appreciate your business and hope that you will stay again with us in the future.

We were there to ski Sugar and didn't want to spend a lot on a hotel. In this case I really feel that we got a bargain. The room, though small, was very nice. It was updated, clean and very comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We chose a room with two twin beds which were incredibly comfy with the pillow tops and soft cotton sheets. The buffet breakfast had us wishing we had eaten elsewhere but it was not expensive either. The hotel is every bit as nice as the pictures make it look. It had a real cozy lodge feel and I relaxed by the fire in the lobby for a while. Great stuff!

Side note: I had a really bad experience with Extreme Snowboard and Ski rental shop down the street. When they actually made us pay for a pair of defective boots that we were unable to use. Rent elsewhere! The woman who is the General manager at Extreme was very rude and confrontational.

Room Tip: I usually ask for an upstairs room so I don't have noise from above. And it's always smart t...

Stayed for a few days of skiing. Staff is very accomodating. Clean. Not so quiet but I don't mind that. They had good breakfast buffets at the restaurant. One of the nights we ate, they had one cook. They were very apologetic and gave us a break on the drinks but the food was still good. Only comment is they charged us taxes "up the kazoo" and were too much in a hurry to dispute it.

Thank you for taking the time to comment about your stay at our hotel. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We value your feedback.

As for the taxes they are high at 12.75%, but this is not up to the hotel how much tax to charge. State tax is at 6.75% but it can change and every hotel has to charge a 6% occupancy tax, taxes are per night.

We appreciate your business and hope that you will stay again with us in the future.

Great staff. Extremely accommodating to our entire family. Our son has asthma and we actually had to move rooms twice. Every time, the staff helped us out every step of the way. The hotel is conveniently located in downtown Banner Elk close to Sugar mountain. We are definitely staying there again!

Room Tip: We really liked the rooms around the back of the property. Nice and quiet.
