Great Price for the Location

We wanted a place close to the Biltmore Estate for the New Year's weekend. Every place around seemed to boost their prices for the holiday. But that did not seem to be the case here. The hotel was located only a couple blocks from the Estate. The hotel, while somewhat dated and reminding me of the 1950s motor inns, was clean and the bed very comfortable. Since we planned to spend all of our time out sightseeing, we only needed a place to sleep -- and this proved ideal. If you want luxury accommodations, this would not be the place. If you want a clean room at a reasonable price, this works well.

I choose the motel because it was close to the Biltmore and the price was okay. We spent most of the day at the biltomore and it was nice to come back to the room to rest.

Excellent Value

1-2 miles from the Biltmore Estate and Downtown Asheville, and walking distance from Biltmore Village. Very comfortable, quiet, clean rooms, nice color scheme of red and beige in the room and white bathrooms. Entrance from carpeted hallways. Complimentary breakfast consisted of bagels, fruits, coffee, etc. Nice hotel staff. Perfect if you are just looking for a good night sleep. Would definitely stay there again considering the excellent value for the buck!

Great Hotel to Sleep in

We were in Asheville for a wedding. We just were there just to sleep. It was clean. They are remodeling so hopefully it will be updated soon.

Good Value

Motel is a diamond in the rough. Outside of property is dated, but the room had been remodel. Was a large room, comfortable bed, micowave and frig. Great location within walking distance of Biltmore Estates. Got a great price on the room. Staff was friendly and maid service was great. Free breakfast was limited, but it was free. Only down side was the swimming pool was closed and does not appear there are any plans to open it. Otherwise would gladly stay there again on my next visit.

Good base for exploring Asheville

The rooms are a bit old, but considering the price this hotel turned out to be a great value. I had a room with a second floor balcony, a refrigerator, free wifi and HBO. More than comfortable. You're in Biitmore Village, a bit touristy but Interesting. A block away is Biltmore Estate, a must-do experience. A fantastic restaurant " Corner Kitchen" is within walking distance but be prepared for waits, it's a local favorite. You're a short drive to downtown Asheville. Staff was accomodating, the breakfast so-so but overall, if you don't need luxury, this is a good option.
