Noisy Room

Roof AC units on the hotel roof made the room very noisy. Do not stay in a room on the 6th floor. I assume lower rooms are better.

Nice property

Close to town, Starbucks in nice grocery store across the street. Large comfy rooms. Terrible coffee in the room but they are not alone. I would rather NO coffee then what they provide. Coffee in the lobby much better. They should provide breakfast. Parking underneath the hotel makes getting to the car with the elevator in all weather very convenient. Cindy Just found out that you do NOT gather points to free nights if you book through a 3rd party. Not good.

Great Value

Recently renovated and very very clean. Location is good too, about two miles from Downtown. Hotel is on Tunnel road where there are so many restaurants of all levels. Great value, you get about 3.5 star hotel for about 2 or 2.5 star price.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Very short drive to downtown. Convenient parking, and many restaurants nearby. You DO NOT need to pay big bucks to stay downtown, this hotel is close enough and priced reasonably.

Met expectations

Clean, good staff, nice place. The only complaint is that it is not downtown; however, it is a quick drive. We enjoyed the bus tour of Asheville because you can get on and off as you please. Street parking in Asheville can be a bit of a pain, but it is a good getaway for a long weekend.

Good hotel

The hotel itself is very clean. The rooms are nice and comfortable. My only issue is the location is not exactly the best, but that is reflected in the price; the value is great for what you get. The hotel was safe and the staff was friendly.

great hotel!

amazing rooms! i was on the top floor with a king bed and it was the best! comfortable beds, room and bathroom were very clean when i arrived. i like to sleep a little late and room service gladly came back to make the room after i left. the hotel is in a great spot on tunnel road. there are plenty of places to eat quick on tunnel road and its just around the corner from downtown asheville where you can do lots of shopping and eat at great restaurants.

Asheville weekend

Great service at the hotel! Place was clean and refreshing! Convienant location great view except behind the hotel. There was a gross rickidy hotel below that needed to go. The room was great! Comphy, nice appliances, nice jacuzzi tub in the bedroom. The only negative thing besides the view was the ac system was crazy loud in the room. I would definately stay there again! The downtown night life was awesome! Great beer and live bands! Too much to do in one weekend! [...]
