I came to the Asheville area for a dog show which was being held at the Crowne Plaza, but I didn't want to pay the high CP rate. This hotel is about 15 -20 minutes outside of Asheville in a fairly rural area. It's an exterior access property with the guest rooms in a separate building from the office/lobby.
When I'm traveling with my dog I always check the room out very carefully and although the room felt a little old it was very clean and housekeeping had been doing a good job. The microwave and refrigerator were also in good condition which is where lack of housekeeping attention often shows first.
The air conditioning worked well and they had a full cable channel assortment on the TV. There were several wi-fi networks to choose from, but they all seemed very slow to connect. The hotel is right next to I-40 but I found it to be quiet enough with the help from a little white noise from the air conditioning.
Although I didn't eat there, this hotel does offer both breakfast and dinner, which is a nice service as there wasn't much else nearby. The nearest restaurant was a Travel America truck plaza about 1/4 mile away.
Staff was very friendly and their pet surcharge was lower than other hotels closer in. Overall this is a basic Day's Inn, nothing fancy and reasonably priced.
