Warm and Cozy

We had a wonderful visit when we came up for a ski trip. The staff was very accommodating and the room was clean and met all of our needs. Our family travels to Boone several times throughout the ski season and we look forward to returning again soon.

The staff was very friendly. The room was clean on the surface but we found several pieces of garbage hidden under the bed.

Fire the head of housekeeping and who ever was suppose to clean the rooms we were exposed to!

Although the over all appearance of this new hotel and seemed clean, there were Bedbugs in our room!! The hotel knew this room had them previously because there was a bed sack on the box spring and mattress, with a few dead bugs underneath it. The bugs were in the crack along the wall where the rug goes up the wall a few inches and stops, as well as on the new bed sack! They offered us another room, (that the box spring and mattress did not have a sack on it) when they checked the top part of the mattress, by pulling the bed away from the wall, there was all sorts of trash and debris, it was gross. We refused the room. Then we were offered the King suite, (another sack less box spring and mattress) with fire place and spa tub, gaureenteed the room would be clean! The room was clean, but the sheets were dirty!!! Checking out, they gave us a free three night stay, for any inconvenience!! good for anytime, like I would ever go back there! Never in my life!! The saddest part is I feel they knew about the problem, and who ever is in charge of housekeeping, should have been on top of this!! As well as the employee cleaning the room! If we could see them, I am sure they would have if they bothered to look!! It is just like no one cares about anything anymore! That should be the first thing they train all of their cleaning staff!! This is not a joke, they are spreading so fast every where, and this staff obviously does not care! I have sprayed, washed and resprayed everything I can, if they show up at my house from this hotel visit, they picked the wrong person to mess with! Not a happy camper!! I understand this can happen anywhere at any hotel, but there is no excuse for neglance on the superiors part for not overseeing, and training their staff properly, The bugs did not just hatch, there were some pretty big bugs, that don't grow unless they have bitten before!!!

I was very skeptical when booking this hotel. The pictures of the room and the outside of the building were messy and I felt that we had booked in a low income hotel. It was just the opposite. the hotel was new, the desk staff was very helpful and friendly as were the house staff. the rooms were clean with plenty of linens and I didn't have to beg to get the linens changed. Definitely would stay there again

The Hotel was new and clean looking. The continental breakfast was really plain. I been to some where the basic fruit is offered like bananas. They had only jellies for the bagels no butter or cream cheese.

Low Price, Great View

I recently stayed at the Best Western Blue Ridge Plaza in Boone NC. The staff was courteous and the free breakfast was good. But the best feature, if you stay on the front side of the hotel is seeing the mountains from the room window. If you look down, there's a street and a shopping center, but if you look straight out of the window, you see mountains. The room was comfy, the TV worked great and everything was clean. Overall, it was a really nice stay for the price.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

The hotel site high above King Street. If you're coming into town from Winston-Salem, your GPS or smart phone is going to tell you to make a U-turn at the light. However, if you turn left at the light, you can turn left again and use an access road that will take you to the parking lot for the hotel.
