Help please

We're staying in Asheville Thursday and Friday night in late October for a concert at Pack Place. Can you give any help with a downtown hotel that won't break a retiree's bank account in the midst of leaf frenzy?

As you may be aware....October is most years the peak of the leaf season. That also usually means peak rates to. There are some moderately priced hotels on Tunnel Road just east of the downtown area...very short drive. Or you might see about the Downtown Inn and Suites on Patton Road, on the west side of the downtown area. Enjoy the concert!

The best value for money - not quite downtown is Guest House Inn; I stayed several times by calling direct & asking for Manager's special for Seniors @$55/night. Could be higher, because of "Changing Colors" - Leaves....

though everybody is predicting that the season will start earlier because of long hot summer...So perhaps late October arrival may be to your advantage..

There is a little speckling of color beginning higher up I noticed. However, the Sourwoods and Dogwoods are usually red by the mid to late part of September. It has been dry here too. I would not personally stay at the Downtown Inn. There really isn't anything inexpensive in the downtown area. Parking is an issue too, so you may consider that when you price out somewhere like the Renaissance, which has it's own parking, and you can walk everywhere from there. It may be a splurge, but worth it , if you can get a room? See if they give AARP or senior discounts? Depending on the price, you can;t be the location for what you are doing. For me, I would check out the newer Holiday Inn and Suites on Tunnel Road or the Brookstone Lodge, slightly further a few city blocks outside of Biltmore Village.
