Romantic honeymoon getaway

We stayed here on our honeymoon 2 years ago. After driving for 12 hours straight, we checked in about 3:00 a.m. In the morning, we asked for a different room since we were looking at a brick wall & hoped for something more romantic for our 2 day honeymoon. The manager was very nice & helpful & upgraded us to a romantic suite with a hot tub, at no extra cost. We had an awesome view of the mountains & could even see the Biltmore in the distance. The room was clean & beautiful & the hot tub was excellent! It was a short drive to Biltmore, the reason for coming to Asheville. We plan to return for our anniversary/2nd honeymoon next month. We are debating whether to stay at this very nice place again or at a more secluded location out of town.

Great stay

We arrived during a snow storm and the hotel did everything they could to make us comfortable. The room was gorgeous and the staff, even though inconvienced by the storm, bent over backwards to make sure we were taken care of properly. Great place. Only problem I had was the bed was very hard.

Clean, comfortable, convenient

Leisure trip. hotel very clean and the staff very helpful. The immediate surroundings not the most attractive. Few minutes drive to downtown Asheville (which is what I wanted); hotel description quite misleading when it appears to indicate you can walk to downtown. You can, of course, but it will be a VERY LONG WALK. Swimming pool quite small, more for kids to splash around than really swim.

Great price & very clean

It was great for a hotel...the location was a quick drive from the downtown scene, and it was really close to lots of fast-food restaurants & right across the street from gas & a grocery store. The place was very clean, the staff was helpful, and the restaurant/bar looked nice, although we did not eat there. The only 2 negatives were the slight lack of parking (although you can use the nearby restaurant parking until 11 AM the next day) and the lack of pool furniture meaning you had to place several things on the ground if a few groups of people were at the people. But overall, great! We would definitely consider staying there again!
