Time for a remodel

Use of metal and electronic keys for access was a bit retro. Breakfast bar was typical of a decade ago. Room was adequate but internet was problematic - too many wireless sites nearby I gather. Bath and towels were a bit worn and need refreshings.

Worth the money you are paying

First of all - for 45-50/night you are few blocks away from the Biltmore house which is great. But, since it is a Wyndham "branch" I was really disappointed with the overall cleanness o the room - there was a huge spot and the carpet that obviously appeared quiet long ago but have never been cleaned. Lamps, shades, chairs - all dusty. Out-of-date coffee-maker, TV. Worn out towels, only 1 shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and soap for room for 2. Although, at least the bed covers were washed and smelled good. The only thing I wanted to leave instead of tips for housekeepers - a note, saying, let 'em clean the rooms!!!! But if you need just a place to sleep and to be close to the house - that's it for a good price!

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.

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.

You are on US 25 which leads you into Asheville so there is plenty of good dining in either direction from the hotel

Close to Biltmore

This Howard Johnson Inn is located close to the Biltmore and was lower is cost compared to other hotels. The hotel grounds were neglected, overgrown with weeds, so the outside did not look very nice. The continental breakfast was average.

I plan on going back to the area soon but won't be staying here

The room looked like a seen out of a low budget 70s dirty movie.. Dark brown carpet and the covers on the bed looked like they were from the 70s the whole place did..the only thing that looked new was the graffiti...place needs repair and there were weeds in the flower bed taller than me...needed a can opener they didn't have one, the ice machine stayed out of ice which I needed since there wasn't a refrigerator in the foom and the sink knob came right off and spraed water all over everything in the bathroom including my girlfriend...I thought it was over priced for what it was even for this area but the lady behind the front desk was nice.

Good hotel

The hotel look very old and the corridor smells like an old inn. But the room is very clean and comfortable. And you can relax in a small balcony outside.

Dirty Room

Entrances to building were dirty which concerned me on arriving. Bathroom seemed to be old but clean and beds were made up. Went to crawl into bed and sheets had not been changed--hair in both beds! Had to get clean ones. Man at desk only mildly apologetic. Next morning in better light we could see the bedroom area had not been swept--food and toenail clippings on floor! Building is old but not well cleaned or maintained. Cereal, pastries at breakfast were stale. We found other hotels on our trip that had rooms for the same price and were clean and well maintained. This Howard Johnson Hotel was NOT worth the price we paid!

Good location, cold AC, dated and drab decor

The location is great... close to downtown and Biltmore Estate. The design and decor is very outdated and the hallways are a bit dim and dank. The rooms were clean and the AC was very cold. Bottom line... If you're looking for a cheap place to stay near everything in Asheville, it's a decent option.
