Convenient and comfortable

Hotel is quite comfortable and delivers a complete set of services at a very good price. Room safes, microwaves, refrigerators provided in rooms though not listed on hotel description. Other nice surprises, too. Some desk people not friendly, but housekeepers, bartender, wait staff were all quite friendly and delivered excellent service.

My Christmas vacation

It was a very nice place to get away from it all with my family. I was told by another couple staying at the hotel they were able to stay for $79 per night.

ok

The room was clean but the staff was a little rude. Not the hospitality we were expecting. Also not walking distance from Asheville like some reviews say.

Clean, comfortable, and close to town

We have stayed at this hotel twice now while traveling to a location further south. Asheville is a great place to stop, enjoy a meal, or stay longer! This hotel is close to downtown, so you can enjoy the activity, restaurants, and shops, yet not have to worry about parking in a downtown hotel. The rooms were larger than most, very clean, and the price [...]was quite reasonable.

Great location

Spent eight nights here while attending a conference. Perfect location half way between downtown Asheville and the Vesica Institute conference center. Would definitely stay again. Staff was professional but not particularly friendly. Great room with fantastic view of the mountains. Used fitness room three times and was able to get good workouts in it.

India Garden restaurant on S. Tunnel (5 minutes from hotel) was excellent. Also highly recommend Zambra (Spanish style tapas restaurant next to Malaprop's Bookstore off Hayward). Mela on Broadway, also Indian restaurant, was excellent and had great service. If you don't eat well in Asheville you must be fasting!

Wonderful Get-a-way!

We were just visiting for 1 night. Biltmore brought us to the area, and we were minutes from the entrance into the Estate. This trip was one of our best. We look forward to coming back and we will definitely stay at the same hotel!

great! love asheville!

great hotel; holiday inn's upgrades made a difference - good bedding, nice pillows and clean environment. the only things that detracted: 1. no fan in the fitness room - it was a desert in there and made the workout pretty awful. 2. the manager who checked us in only set up our cards for a one night stay (instead of the two that we paid for upon check-in); which meant that we weren't able to access the covered elevator during a torrential downpour and had to get soaked running to the front door. we had to get new cards after going to our room and finding out they didn't work.

don't bother with the chain restaurants in the parking lot (although certain reviews rave about the "fiddlin' pig"); a short drive into downtown (through the tunnel) opens up GREAT local spots: bouchon, mela, tulepo honey, etc.

Great Spot

Great hotel. Less than 10 minutes from the front gate of the Biltmore Hotel and about a five minute drive to downtown Asheville. Hotel is spotless, pretty new and has lots of restaurants within walking distance. Also a gas station and grocery store across the street.
