Weekend with friends and the location was the reason for choosing this hotel. The staff was great and the room comfortable. Had some noise from the kids in room next door the first night but after they checked out had a very restful night. Breakfast was one of the best I've had at a "free breakfast hotel" and the lady working to keep everything clean and well stocked was very gracious, friendly and helpful. As with most hotels there are areas that need some repair but I saw nothing to indicate this location was one that was managed by someone who was absent and unaware of their responsibilities. Will stay here again.

"Stayed here for 4 days for a wedding we attended "
This was our second time staying here. stay was great and did notice rooms have improved since the first stay. staff was very nice and helped with anything you needed. Hotel was clean and the breakfast was good. the only thing I would say is I wish that the internet service was better hard to get on, otherwise this is a great hotel to stay at.

I loved the location of this hotel. It was close to everything and had gorgeous scenery. I stayed for two nights, three days for a conference. The staff was super friendly and the accommodations for the conference were really great. They took care of everything! The hotel room was clean and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Cute, quaint, and clean!

"Nice B&B in a good location near Grandfather Mt."
Love the location of this b&b - convenient to restaurants and a nice walking trail and park within walking distance. Breakfast was good. Only slight inconvenience was there was only a bathtub with a hand-held shower in the magnolia room - cute and historic but an upright shower would have been better.

For separate-room accommodations for two, you can't beat the price. The condo is spacious and comfortable - with the caveat that there's no AC, only a ceiling fan in the living space and box fan in the BR. If it's warmer than usual, sleeping can be a bit uncomfortable, but when the temps are normal, it's ok. (I'm a city dweller, not gonna leave windows open while sleeping.) No AC also means that the space can smell musty after being closed up, but it's not terribly off-putting. It's not brand-new, newly remodeled or anything like that, but it's comfortable and clean, and the staff are helpful and friendly.
Just be aware that the wi-fi sucks. It's almost non-existant, but the view from the balcony makes up for that. So beautiful and peaceful that it's a pleasure to unplug for a while. Cellular and data service is spotty, as it is everywhere on the mountain. But again, the views make up for the lack of connectivity.

Room was nice and clean and in good shape other then some loose tile in bathroom floor. The room was large and very rustic with large stone fireplace, pine paneling and beams with vaulted ceiling. Price was reasonable. The hotel looked neglected from the outside, but the inside was nice. Looks like the current owners are in the process of fixing the place up. We arrived late and left early a couple of days later so did not meet the staff personally.

This quiet town in the scenic hills of Avery County is home to Lees-McRae College. View the October foliage on its beautiful stone campus at the annual Woolly Worm Festival. Don't miss Banner Elk's hidden gem, a long-shuttered Wizard of Oz theme park resurrected once annually for the Autumn at Oz celebration. Winter visitors can ski Sugar Mountain Resort or Beech Mountain Resort, both nearby.
