Modern, beautifully decorated and right next to a beautiful river. Absolutely lovely. The breakfast is really wonderful also. Very friendly staff. Certainly want to come back for vacation. The rooms are HUGE and the accommodations are top notch.

Reviewed 21 February 2017

This is a great place to stay when you're in this area. It is right on the river and boy what a view! If you have an opportunity to get one of the rooms on the "river side" be sure & take if available. If not available, there is still nice patios & decks to enjoy as well. We had...

And do not get me started on Breakfast. Great food as you dine watching the Tucaseegee River roll by. Very handy to Dillsboro (do not miss the Model of Dillsboro BW has on 2nd floor near elevator) and Harrah's Casino

Had a room with balcony...could sit outside and listen to river the whole time. Very pleasant stay. Easy parking. Easy access to rooms. Decent breakfast. Pay extra for balcony...worth it. Front desk staff very helpful. Loved our stay.

Having a great location on the river is a plus for this hotel. The appearance of the property is excellent, as are the lobby, breakfast area and the room we were in. Spend the extra money and get a river view room. It is worth the money.

This hotel was great. We originally booked for 2 nights but I was not feeling fell and had to cancel second night. We were kindly offered a refund on the second night which I thought was unheard of in the hotel business. This was very much appreciated and we will certainly return and tell friends and family our great service....

First time staying at this BW but we are now a customer for life. Very conveniently located to many places and things we love in the western NC mountains. The hotel is very nice, wonderfully decorated, great staff, great breakfast, comfortable bed, no problem with internet. And the views and sounds of the Tuckasegee River and waterfowl are a joy....

Very nice and friendly staff! The rooms are very clean everything in them seems to be new and in great working order. The breakfast was great and well stocked, seemed to have something for everyone. And most importantly the coffee is always hot...even at 11:00 pm when we checked in.
