Good mountain weekend

We enjoyed our stay at Best Western. The only two drawbacks being that despite it being memorial weekend this is the off season for the area and the pool was closed (drained)...disappointed. The property is a bit aged and in need of renovation, we noticed broken tile at the wheelchair ramp, fussy key card locks, etc. Great free hot breakfast was a big plus.

Great Weekend Getaway

I did not expect this place to be so great. Went down for a long weekend. It was relatively close to many good restaurants, the staff were really nice, and the big breakfast buffet was a really nice plus. The rooms were really clean and nice.

Pretty good place to stay when going to ski

I went to ski in Sugar Mountain and it is pretty good place to stay. Unfortunately, it runs out of water during my stay and it is a disaster.

cozy in the mountains

My husband and I had a wonderful time. We enjoyed our stay at Banner Elk located within minutes of needs you might have; and only miles from great sites to see. It was a comfortable and cozy Lodge with a clean room for us. The breakfast was great with many items to choose from with great service and help. Thee counter help was knowledgeable of restaurants nearby and other areas to visit. All in all, if want a comfy stay at a great price: Banner Elk is the Loge to stay at.

Surprising resort location

Friendly staff, easy access to the room. Rather noisy aircon/heating arrangement. Breakfast was very good. There are excellent places to have dinner in the vicinity.
