Quick Asheville getaway

Hotel staff were very nice and helpful, lovely king suite with plenty of room, decent view of the mountains. Good balance of price and location close to downtown, but needed a cheap cab (or 5 min drive) to get there. Jacuzzi/pool got a little crowded w/ kids, but average in size/quality. Would recommend for a getaway to see downtown and all Asheville but not super-fancy demands of being in the heart of downtown (of which I didn't find much).

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Cabs downtown really vary in price and some go unmetered. Most places should be $6-8, and if the meter is off they'll listen to you even though they ask for $10....

Fine place to stay close to downtown

Check in was quick. Room was clean and comfortable although a little noisy at night since it was on the freeway side. Checkout person was extremely cheerful and informative!

WEEKEND GETAWAY

JOHNBOY & BILLY COMEDY CLASSIC WEEKEND. THE ONLY THING I CAN SAY THAT WAS NOT GOOD ABOUT THE HOTEL WAS THE BED, IT WAS LIKE SLEEPING ON THE FLOOR AND THE PILLOWS WERE SO SOFT THAT THEY WENT FLAT WHEN YOU LAID YOUR HEAD DOWN.

Great experience at this hotel

We stayed at this Holiday Inn for one night in Asheville. We were only in town for a show at the Civic Center, but our stay was great. When we arrived we were upgraded to a suite from a regular room. The room was clean, bed extremely comfortable, and staff very personable. We very much enjoyed our stay and will certainly come back when visiting Asheville again.

nice affordable option

This was a nice hotel for the price. Love the heated pool, the rooms were much nicer than I expected- granite features, nice bed linens, pillows were superb. It's in a convenient location right off the highway and close to downtown. However, even though on the map it looks like it's walking distance to the heart of downtown Asheville, it is in fact not walkable due to a sizeable mountain that cuts right between this hotel and the downtown area. Staff was helpful and friendly, refrigerators in standard room. All in all, great value.
