Ambiance, hospitality, amenities, warmth, inviting - these are not words that came to mind during our stay at the Monte Vista Hotel. We first stayed at this hotel 20 years ago when it was owned by the family of the original owners. What a wonderful experience it was then. The lobby was full of families laughing and paying games.

I ate Sunday lunch with a group of 12. The menu selections were varied and tempting, but many items were unavailable because the grill was broken. Everyone enjoyed their food. Our meals ranged from sandwiches to meat and potato dinners with desserts. All were delicious. I chose an average rating because the menu choices were limited. The waitress delivered one... More

We booked at Monte Vista based on web pictures and descriptions of rooms. We stayed in the modern annex rooms. Our room was totally minimal. We had no phone, no coffee maker, no clock, no cups or glasses. There was a bed, end table wall mounted slabs, and a single straight chair. When we asked at the front desk about... More

My husband and I stayed at the Monte Vista Hotel during peak foliage season. We wanted to stay in Asheville, but everything was booked months in advance, so we found this place in Black Mountain. The room (lodge) was very small with a queen bed and one chair. It was clean, but much smaller than we anticipated. It's not a... More

We just stayed at the Monte Vista and would definitely stay here again. We initially searched for a hotel Asheville but due to the time of year everything was sold out or extremely expensive. We started looking at B&Bs right outside of Asheville and came across this gem. The room was reasonably priced and was clean. The decor was simple... More

My husband and I just had a delightful Sunday brunch at the Palate Restaurant in the Monte Vista Hotel. We were warmly greeted by Ashley, who is the events manager there. We love the elegant but casual dining atmosphere. From the delicious cup of coffee to the awesome food, it was a great experience. I tried the special one biscuit... More

The red carpet was certainly rolled out for my visit. Staff; from housekeeping to owners (and all in between,) were friendly and helpful. Accommodations very comfortable. Dinner in the dining room was superb. (Thank you, Chef Anthony!) Wine choice assisted by Amy from the bar - perfect to compliment the meal and make it pop! Definitely don't expect a cookie-cutter...

Staff was not very friendly or helpful in assisting with room amenities listed on the hotel website. One of those being wifi. Additionally, the rooms were very cold with no temperature control available in the room. The hotel has a cat which is a problem since I am allergic to cats. This is not listed on their website!
