Best Western Mountain Lodge at Banner Elk

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Clean room, bedding average, a little worn. Coffee and buffet good in the morning. Staff pleasant.

For the price I paid this hotel was not bad. The beds were very comfortable and everything was clean. The hotel was a little noisy. When people walked past you could hear their whole conversation & you can hear when someone had their shower going. Breakfast was good and the eating area was really spacious and nice. There aren't a lot of food choices around the area. Everywhere we ate was a 20 minute drive. Would probably not stay here again.

Bed was uncomfortable. Too of bedside lamp was very dusty.

Best place to stay for the money! Plus it is only a couple of miles away from Sugar Mtn and about 30 minutes to App Ski. The king bed was not very comfortable. Although, this may have been due to falling several times on the slopes... Breakfast was better than expected and the staff was friendly. The room was clean and odorless. The fridge and microwave were clean and functional.

This hotel is perfect if you're going to ski Sugar Mountain. Just right around the corner from the slopes. The rates are affordable, there are decent restaurants nearby, as well as a supermarket and a pharmacy. The staff was very nice and took great care of us. The free breakfast was perfect to fuel us up for a day of skiing. We will definitely stay here whenever we ski Sugar Mountain.

everyone friendly - woman in the breakfast room is an angel!

The hotel is very close to Sugar Mountain and an great choice for a budget ski trip. They hotel is older but they have updated the facilitates. FULL breakfast included- eggs and the works!

Room was small but other than that it was great. It was full blizzard conditions but I was able to easily get from sugar mtn to hotel. Beech is a little trickier but still only 20 min (bring chains). Their breakfast was surprisingly good.

The hotel is located close to the main ski attractions and restaurants.

I cannot say enough about this place!! 5 stars says it all and then some. We will be staying here every time we go to Bristol or go to the mountains period. The staff and the atmosphere made this stay 10 star!! Loved it!!!

The hotel was great and the staff was great also. We are planning another trip to visit the area and plan to stay at the the same hotel

The facility is a little older but is very clean and well kept.

Very nice Hotel and Location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Full morning breakfast was a nice addition.

Nice Lodge. Mans trip to Nascar races. The drive was a little far but hotel was excellent.

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.

We've stayed here numerous times and each time the rooms have been clean and the staff has always been friendly and helpful.

The place does feel a little outdated, but is a great value, good location, friendly staff, good breakfast

this hotel was nice and it was very convenient to where we were snowboarding and skiing and a good value for the amount paid.

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.

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.
