For $55 you can’t beat this place. It’s not a five star hotel obviously, but the mountain cabin feel was perfect. The room was clean and the staff were very pleasant. I was a little uncertain at first sight, but I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone who doesn’t need anything fancy.

The room was not good.. had issues with water pressure in sink and furniture was tearing off

The Hillbilly Hilton. Hokie and not the worst, but 2 stars at its best..

Laid back 50's vibe, friendly staff and good value...

Fun place to stay and the staff was great!!!! For the money I don't think you can get a better value in Asheville.

The hotel staff was very nice however the room was awful. Every corner of the room had cobwebs and bugs in it. Not to mention in the restroom I am fairly confident there were rat droppings everywhere. And when you looked under the sink, you could see a fairly large separation between the wall and carpet so I’m sure that’s where every creature makes the entrance. There should be a much bigger focus of thorough cleaning of the rooms and also trying to ensure no critters make their way inside.

The hotel is an older one and does show age, but it has some interesting stories behind it. The steep drive from the street to the motel office and then the next hill to the second building were a surprise.

Had a nice stay at the Mountaineer, friendly staff during check-in and pretty complete breakfast offered in the morning, with oatmeal, fruits, coffee, donuts, etc.

The hotel is quaint, clean, and affordable. I find the location convenient when visiting Asheville.

This is a very nice facility close to the downtown area of Asheville, staff was also very nice

The staff here is very accommodating, the rooms are a good size, the beds were comfortable and the location is fantastic; all for a reasonable price.

Very comfortable and convenient to Asheville attractions. Good value. Breakfast was basic grab and go but there was a good assortment of donuts. People in office helpful but not overly friendly. Room was clean but showed lots of age. Beds were comfy. Parking good.

I am ultra sensitive to pets and smoke. [allergies + asthma] I got a nonsmoking room, but apparently there had been a dog or cat in there. I asked for the room to be vacuumed, and they took care of it immediately. After they did I was fine. Mountaineer Inn -- I will be back!

This is a wonderful place to spend the night and slow down a bit. In today's times people have a little difficulty sometimes slowing down This place makes it easy to do

The front desk staff was ok. Wifi service bad, tired rooms, old tvs had to be manually turned on and off, room was not cleaned each day, breakfast was donuts and coffee. Room was not insulated so had to turn old heater on and off thruout th night.

Hello, thank you for your feedback, I do remember this issue and our maintenance was able to replace the aerator on the sink. We apologize for not being able to change your room due to being fully booked that evening for Memorial Holiday. We hope you decide to visit us again.
