This was our second stay at this hotel. I can recommend it highly. It is exceptionally clean in all areas. It serves a good breakfast that is included with the price of the room. The dining area is located on the river view side of the hotel and the view is great. Our room had a view of the river...

Hotel is freshly renovated, rooms like brand new, clean, well decorated and comfortable. Right on the river! Many rooms with patios or balconies within feet of the rippling water. Very relaxing. Near the scenic tourist railroad which may roll by a couple of times a day during summer months, not a disruption. Downtown Dillsboro is half a mile away. Quaint...

Nice location on the back side (river), front side railroad, but never heard a train. People that work there helpful and pleasant. Recently updated and I thought it was fine before. Only negative some fitness equipment could use some attention.

Our favorite place to stop on the way to Gatlinburg through North Carolina! The main attraction is the location on the river and the patio overlooking the river with rocking chairs! The rooms are nice size and are clean, and the beds are very comfy!!! One of my favorite things is the fact that the rooms have a screened window...

This has been one of mine and my husbands favorite get away spots. I made reservations for the weekend of Sept 28th, Mountain Heritage Day. I had to call several days later to cancel the reservation because my Mother in Law fell and broke her hip. The woman that took my cancellation was very pleasant and asked why, I explained...

We enjoyed our stay with the Best Western River Escape Inn in Dillsboro North Carolina. Would definitely stay there again if we visit North Carolina in the fall for leaf viewing. It's always nice to visit friendly small towns and enjoy the hospitality they have to offer.

This was our second stay at the BW River Escape. The first stay was perfect. This stay was nice but there were problems. The rooms and baths are immaculate. Staff is friendly, but not so helpful on this second stay. The phone in our room did not work and it was never fixed and no apology given, no reason given,...

Get a room with a view!! Nice clean hotel. Small so doesn't feel crowded. Clean indoor pool, fire pit and ok breakfast bar with some hot items. Town has lots of shops and restaurants. Short easy drive to Great Smokey Mt Railroad and Cherokee.

I stayed at this hotel with a business group. We had 10 rooms from Sunday to Friday. The rooms aren't fancy, but they are clean and comfortable. The staff is professional, courteous, and friendly. Breakfast choices include pancakes, waffles, cereal, muffins and breads, apples and oranges, and beverages. Nice indoor pool (about 35 feet long), although the jets in the...

We didn't have a reservation but got tired (road trip) and saw the Best Western billboard so decided to stay here. I can not recommend this hotel enough. Such friendly and helpful staff, clean, breakfast and a front row seat on the river. Inside seating that looks out on the river if it is raining/cold. Rocking chairs or table and...
