We will be driving from Orlando, FL and would like to visit Biltmore and the Asheville area. I work for a hotel company but the only employee rates I can find near Asheville are for a hotel in Greeneville-Spartanburg for $40/night. I did find a Days Inn Biltmore East for $64/night.
This is only for a 3-night trip (a long weekend Th-Sun) so I'm struggling whether to drive farther and stay in an unfamiliar hotel or stay farther away from Biltmore but be in a hotel I'm familiar with but with the possibility of more driving and spending possibly more money on gas.
Thank you in advance for any guidance.
