Reviewed 5 November 2013

Nice hotel with helpful staff. Our room was clean, bathroom very nice, beds very comfortable. No good chair or lamp for reading. Prices reasonable, at least at end of October when we were there. Breakfast rather sparse, but ok. If you want something hot you take a sausage, egg, cheese sandwich out of refrigerator and heated it in the microwave. They taste fine. There is yogurt or cereal available, and they have a pancake maker--I have no idea how that works. They have items to toast, and some small muffins, and some kind of sweet roll.
Shortly after we settled into our room, we were called to see if everything was ok. That is an example of their good service.

Manager and Receptionist very nice. We had a small hiccough with our booking, but they sorted this out quickly and graciously. The room was very clean and looked new. The breakfast was sparse, but adequate. There were some strange smells in the lift area downstairs, but this was probably because renovations were taking place.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back because we were worried about traffic noise on the busy road at the front...

This hotel is trying very hard to please to overcome some bad press to do unfortunate deaths in their hotel earlier in the year, It was spotlessly clean, staff friendly and helpful, there was an unusual odor in the lobby when I checked in but dissipated later, I saw a workman carrying an open paint can, that may have been the source of the odor. The front desk called shortly after check in to make sure I was pleased with the room. I would suggest they improve their breakfast, heavy on the carbs and to light on protein, all in all for what I paid for the night it was a good value.

This hotel is conveniently located on a major route through Boone. But it is a quite location because it is on a hill well above the road and road noise. Our room was very large and nicely furnished. Overall, the hotel appears to be a relatively new facility, or one that has been recently and extensively renovated. It has a very nice exterior and lobby/lounge/breakfast area with a fireplace and large screen TV. The bathroom and counter space were somewhat small, at least by typical Best Western standards – though the size was fairly typical for most other hotels.

We enjoyed our stay here. We were given an extra large room with a fireplace, which also had a small dining table, so we could eat in. (room has microwave and fridge). Pool was closed, but we were able to use the pool in hotel next door, which was great. Breakfast room very pleasant, breakfast selection adequate.

In common with all best westerns the bedding falls short. The sheeting and blankets are skimpy, and pillows marginal. Unless you put up with noisy fan heater, the rooms are too cold for the bedding from October onwards. Come on BW, up your game! The hotel kindly offers an extra pillow and blanket in the room - but I still wake up cold and fighting bouncy pillows!

The rooms are good sized and well maintained. The lobby and breakfast area are nice and there are photographs of local landscapes which is a nice touch. Breakfast is the typical hotel breakfast. I really was disappointed that the pool was not available. There is a good view from the front side of the hotel. Also, there are chairs and a swing across the front facing the view.
The cost was a little more than we would have liked but I guess the combination of Appalachian State Homecoming and leaf season were the reason.
Location is within walking distance to town and the university.

Room Tip: If you want the view, ask for the front rooms. The rear may be a little quieter but the traffic was...

Green Features: Did not see any place to recycle anything. Also, did not see a sign that said if you were willing to use your towels a second day, to hang them.
