Thin Walls

Pros: Like where it is situated relative to the school campus.
Cons: Sound proof the walls.
It is not easy for me to fall asleep when I can hear the next door neighbor snoring, water moving the the water pipe, neighbor on the other side flush their toilet, and people talking in the hall way (on the 3rd floor). Pillows were awesome and the bed was very comfortable you better be a deep sleeper to sleep well here.

Not Good

Pros: Decent, room and bathroom were both clean, good location.
Cons: Breakfast, needs hot foods. Make sure there is enough hot water! Hotel was not even completely booked.
Location: Mountains of NC. Near Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie Railroad, and Blowing Rock.
No hot water, breakfast was only cold foods, nothing cooked. Power went out for two hours, hotel staff gave us wrong directions to get on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Overpriced for what we got. No action taken about problems.

Great place to stay

Pros: cleaniness
Location: Many good places to eat. See Grandfather mountain by all means. In fact take most of the day for this trip.
We were given a room on the second floor with a great view of the mountains. Very clean and quiet at night. Breakfast was more than adequate. Staff was very helpful and eager to please. Will definitely stay there on our next trip to Boone.

Excellent Choice

Enjoyed our stay!  Rooms were neat and clean, nothing to worry about.  Breakfast each morning was as expected, waffles, pancakes, assorted muffins, breads, bagels and cereal. CO Detectors in each room were a nice addition. Would stay here again.

Average at Best

Our stay @ Best Western was average starting with the desk receptionist more interested in texting than focusing on the next arrival. Room accommodations were clean but dated with desk & work chair in need of repair. Positive credit can be given to a strong wireless connection with no 'loops' to jump to get on-line. A very well stocked breakfast and a more than accommodating breakfast staff person are the other positives from this stay. Pricing was the most reasonable of local hotels considering the inflated pricing on weekends of home football games (and this was homecoming which pushed up the price even more).

This hotel was very nice.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, fireplace in room
Cons: Poor breakfast
When we travel to Boone and Blowing Rock we typically rent a cottage for the home atmosphere. However, the prices on the rental that we usually get escalated 30% this year. Their loss. We found that this hotel gave us some of the same cozy atmosphere. We upgraded to a larger room with the fireplace which had almost everything that a cottage has for a lot less money. We had the opportunity to interact with four of the staff members. All were very friendly and helpful. The only complaint that we had was that the breakfast was not as good as some of the others offered in the area. We would stay here again.
