Good Value

Good location- handy to the interstate and city and a safe neighborhood. Complimentary breakfast was OK- nothing special- bagles, muffins, cereal, coffee, juice, no protein-that was a disappointment room was large and quiet and comfortable; but in general, somewhat rundown like the rest of the place; free wi-fi worked fine Enjoyed watching the six feral cats in the parking lot. Sorry to see that the pool was not operational.

Swimming Pool is still empty...

The hotel was easy to access from the highway and each room has a balcony or patio. We knew the pool had been closed a month prior to our visit, but expected it to have been re-opened by mid-July. No signs of any attempts to fix and fill. The continental breakfast was weak but they do have fresh fruit in the back...ask for it! Staff was nice. Great location - very close to the Biltmore estate.

Try the Corner Kitchen for a wonderful but slightly expensive dinner or lunch.

Decent place, just a little run down

We had a pleasant stay here. The hotel is just a little rundown. With some work this could be a nice place.

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.

Location great

Hallways carpets needs help, hallway doors locks need help. The reduced weekday rate is what you should have to pay all the time. The non-smoking Room smelled great. Staff made beds and cleaned bathroom in a timely manner. Location for Biltmore house is great. Room was a little dated but was ok for me.

Ho Jo's a best value !

Howard Johnson's location is right off I - 40 and very close by car to the Biltmore Estate and within walking distance to several restaurants. The continantal breakfast was more than adequate and the staff was helpful with important needed directions.
