Used Rewards points to stay at this hotel; Typical FF line for Marriott although this particular one is old and has not recieved the latest & greatest upgrades to public areas or sleeping rooms.
Easy access from I-26 / State 74; You have you choice of facing highway noise on the front of the hotel or Airport / plane noise on the back of the hotel. The hotel is located across the street to the Asheville airport.
Building has been painted on the outside but old design and a lot of facility furnishing/fixtures have not been changed out; Very low ceiling lobby and tends to make it dark; Large breakfast area - sitting is ample and comfortable. A little strange on the layout for the elevator entry areas on the upstairs rooms. Huge open space at each elevator; Hall ways and the elevator were extremely hot -- no ventilation and no AC running in either. Hallways are dimly lighted - a little beat up and worn.
Sleeping rooms OK but again dated and a little run down; This Marriott chain consistently lacks the comfort touches such as ample outlets and suffers from a lack of lighting; It's the bottom price range for Marriott and it shows. The room we had bent and tattered lamp shades - and those energy florescent bulbs don't help. The bed was comfortable. The linens including the towels were average.
When we checked in, the tub was up to the overflow vent with water. When I released the drain lever it emptied but the spigot would not completely turn off. It appears the cleaning staff pulled the drain closed and since it had a light stream of water leaking, it filled up. I told the front desk when I asked for extra towels but they were unimpressed and said they would let maintenance know Monday (this was Sunday night). No offer to switch the room when I told them. The running water didn't bother us so I ignored it.
Breakfast offerings were identical to all Marriott FF Inns -- reconstituted eggs, pre cooked / heated sausage, breads, oatmeal, etc. The kitchen staff was attentive and quick to replenish when needed. Clean food area and plain table/chairs.
