“Bare, but clean and spacious.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

I booked a triple room for a one-night stop despite some scary and mixed reviews posted here, and saved a lot of money compared to other nearby hotels in Asheville. The reception was completely fine with no problems; the room itself was large and very clean; the beds were moderately comfortable; the TV had lots of cable channels; and though the bathroom had barely any toiletries, it was clean. I was nervous that it might be in a bad neighborhood, but it is off a busy street, and we parked our car directly in front of our window. You definitely need a car to get around as this is outside of both Black Mountain and Asheville. This is a no-frills motel, but I would recommend it to anyone with a long or short stay in the area wanting to save money.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

The condition of the room I was given was truly disgusting. With it being late in the evening and everything else booked, I decided to tough it out. The smell of cigarettes combined with musty order was terrible. The room is surrounded with cracks in the molding that is literally filled with a hardened slurry of tissue paper and water. I kid you not! There is heavy back mold growing in the drawers and you can't count the number of cigarette burns in everything from the tables to the tub. The sheet seemed clean but I should have just crashed in my truck. If your in the area, why not drop in and ask to see room #116 just to say you too saw the worst room ever.

Room Tip: Go directly to another hotel or just stay in your car.

For the price, it is a great deal. Not fancy. It is a pleasant, clean, owner-operated motel. It is a 2-minute drive to downtown Black Mountain. The refrigerator and microwave were fairly new and worked fine. The wifi in the room was strong. No complaints.

Shopped at Black mountain and stayed a night at The Apple blossom Next door , Planning on heading home but met up with friends and decided to stay another night so we checked a room at The Acorn , We were met by Harry and he gave us a key to check out the room. It was Larger than we expected and we told our friends and they also booked a room , Overall a nice stay . Clean and roomy. Staff was very friendly

Room Tip: ask to see the room first . We loved our bed but our friends said there bed was to hard for them
