Nothing special about this place. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Could have used a better pillow. Breakfast good but could offer something other that sausage every day. Wasn't crazy about the two large dogs in the room next to us, but people were escaping the recent hurricane, so we gave them a pass. Tiled walkways could be a real...

Friendly professional front desk staff. Room was pretty good and for Fall Foliage time, price was reasonable. Breakfast was above average for a motel.. A little our-of-the-way off the Blue Ridge Pkwy, but would return if opportunity presented itself. Rate it a 3 star.

My daughters and I came to visit App State and Boone. Not only was this hotel cheaper than any in Boone, it was extremely nice. I recommend it to anyone wanting a great get away weekend. Banner Elk and the surrounding area is very entertaining any time of the year, and you can never run out of stuff to do....

The Best Western in Banner Elk, NC is a nice place to stay if you don't plan to stay in your room very much. The cost is much more affordable than Boone or Blowing Rock hotels. The rooms are standard hotel style 2 bed rooms with a door that opens to the outside. I am not big on this type...

The staff here make all the difference. Great location, incredible breakfast each day, good coffee, comfortable beds - but again - nice people make it even more valuable. This is an older hotel and had some construction going on while we were there; however, it was clean, updated, and very close to downtown Banner Elk.

Our stay here was very nice, would stay here again when in the area. The girls at the front desk were were very friendly & helpful. The bedding was very nice & comfy, the room very clean & pleasant. We just want a nice clean room with comfy bed & friendly staff, & that's exactly what we got here.

Very friendly staff and very comfortable pet friendly rooms. Great Continental breakfast. All in all a wonderful value! If you don't want to be looking out of your room at the wall of the outside corrider, be sure to specify that you want an outside or poolside room.

Stayed for only one night (9/15/16), but the front desk was very helpful with directions and suggestions for a restaurant. We had met friends there on our way home from Florida. The room was clean & quiet. Would stay there again if the chance arises.

The place was very inviting from the moment I called them to inquire about getting a room. The lady at the front desk was very helpful. When we arrived the lobby had that at home feeling. It looks very rustic giving you the feeling of being in a mountain cabin. The room was very nice and the bed slept great....

I loved the location and cool temperatures. I pool was nice too It was really nice but we were on the second floor and I didn't like the stairs and my back bothered us after 2 nights..Maybe because we are older. Breakfast room is great and food is great.
