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.

Great place to stay

This was a very nice hotel, very clean, comfortable & in a great location. They served your basic free breakfast, but it was great for us. We were a little disappointed that the pool was closed & didn't know this in advance, but I would still recommend this hotel to friends & family.

Overnight stay college orientation

Arrived after 12 midnight to check-in . Office door was locked . Had to ring twice and then call to get someone. When contact was made he was quick and efficient with room and instructions to room. Limited towels for rooms with three people. Shower was nice and warm and the room was nice and cool. Quiet to sleep. Older hotel Could use some fluffier towels or some new comforters to spruce it up another notch Served its purpose.

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.

Perfect for the basic needs person!

This was my first trip to Asheville to learn a little about the area. It worked out perfect! Close to downtown, within 15 minutes of my daughter's college and next to the Biltmore Estates. Not a person that will need many hotel ammenities on my trips to Asheville, so this was clean, quiet, spacious room, wireless internet and continental breakfast.

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.

Cheap and Decent

We booked our room at the Ho Jo based on price, access to the Biltmore Estate attractions and the generally favorable reviews on this site. While this is an older property and the outside maintenance is spotty, the room was clean, the bathroom had been updated, the AC, TV, Refrigerator, and WiFi worked. The beds were comfortable. The free continental breakfast was minimalist, but decently presented and kept up. The coffee was actually decent. Access to Biltmore and other Asheville attractions was excellent. It is just off I-40, so getting to the property was no problem. Plenty of nice restaurants less than 1/2 mile away. For the price and location, it is a very good value.

If you like Indian food go downtown to the Chai Puri. They serve "Indian street vendor" food at very reasonable prices in their informal little restaurant. Great Indian food that you will never see at the typical Indian restaurant.

Pretty Decent Hotel

The hotel wasn't the Biltmore, but for the price it was worth it. High speed internet worked, nice continental breakfast, friendly staff, but most important, NO bed-bugs!!! HAHA! Overall I'd stay again...
