We first stayed here back in 2015 and realized what a great place this is and wondered if it had held up well. It is still just as good 4 years later! Everything is immaculately clean, the employees are exemplary, the breakfast is definitely above average for these type of breakfasts (attendant is very conscientious), and the location is fantastic for exploring the mountains of Western NC. Sylva is a gorgeous town surrounded by tall mountains, but isn't at all touristy so if you need to go to Walgreens or Walmart or eat fast food to save some money for one meal, it's all there. No crowds. The price of this hotel is very reasonable for the quality. The beds are comfortable, there's pillows of various firmness and we had a lovely view from our room (not directly, but off to the side, so don't over expect. Still awesome when the fog clears out). My husband enjoyed the pool. The lobby is very large and lovely and there are comfortable places to sit outside near the pool and the lobby, which is great for my husband the early bird to go read or wait for me the sleepy head to wake up. Our king room had a very comfortable chair and ottoman with a nice reading lamp. Frig in the room (didn't have a freezer) which is always handy. We will continue to make this a place we stay on our visits to the mountains. It's easy to get to all our favorite Western NC destinations while staying here. One day we went south on the Blue Ridge Parkway; the next day we went North. We enjoy Franklin, Waynesville, the Smoky Mountains NP....all are an easy quick drive. To us it's always seemed quiet. Our only complaint was that the rooms (our first room was too far from the elevator, I had an ankle injury and requested a room close to elevator so we changed) had a slighly weird smell and somehow the room seemed a little damp/humid? It didn't stop us from enjoying the room and I'm not exactly sure why this was so. We were only in the room to sleep so we didn't bother to ask or complain about it as it wasn't a major problem for us. Maybe we didn't have the a/c set properly (by the way the a/c worked great).
