Very nice hotel that has been updated recently, great service and very reasonably priced as compared to Asheville, we will stay here again, walking distance to downtown Black Mountain makes it very convenient

We stayed at The Monte Vista for a family gathering. The rooms were clean and the breakfast buffet was good. The hotel is older but well maintained. Unfortunately the weather was not good and we didn't get to see a lot of Black Mountain.

We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and enjoyed the whole evening. The wait staff could not have been nicer and the food was excellant. The hotel is quaint and filled with original local art that's for sale. Would be good for a fall trip to relax. Check it out.
