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.

Good but could be better

Room was clean, bed was nice. Only change I''d recommend about the room would be a fan in the bathroom. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet had a nice variety of food. Some temperatures on food need better monitoring - milk wasn't cold.

Pretty views

The staff was great and the area is beautiful! The pool is cold and rooms feel a bit like a motel but are comfy and clean. Would definitely stay there again.

Mountain trip

It doesn't get any better. The staff, room, services were excellent. The free full breakfast evry moring was great. That saved us ltime as well as money. The location is great, short drives to Blowing Rock, Boone, Beech and Sugar Mountains. We are already looking forward to returning next year. The temperature was in the low 60's to mid 70's. It hit 96 when we crossed back into Fla.
