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).

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.
