I had read the reviews and have to agree with the majority... this is a good deal. Mattresses were very comfortable and rooms were clean . When making reservations, the staff was very accomodating. The location is convenient to Biltmore (4 miles or so) and right beside a Craker Barrel. They were able to offer tickets to Biltmore as part of a package and this was especially convenient. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for Mountain view if available

Thanks for taking the time to post a review about your experience at our property.

It means a lot to us that we live up to our online reputation and we are glad that we met your expectations! Your room tip is right in the money, folks should ask for a mountain view upgrade. (free for TripAdvisor guests!!)

Best of luck in your future travels and thanks so much for choosing to stay with us.

Thanks,

Arrived to this hotel after a long drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The hotel located on a kind of a hill isolated from the highway. Front desk was very nice. The room (2 queen bed) was just great with a great flat tv, very comfort beds and good and clean shower. My wife used the gym and was very satisfied with it. Breakfast was great (not that healthy but quiet good to ooen the day with). Down the hill you can find few chain restaurants. Overall we had a great stay. Thank you!!!

We were very pleased with our stay. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, the bed was comfy, and the shower was great with lots of pressure. We also enjoyed the restaurants recommended by the staff. Overall, the stay was wonderful and we will definitely stay there again when we visit next time! Thank you Sleep Inn!

Because of the Gov. shutdown we had to adjust our plans from staying near Shenandoah to hiking and seeing the fall colors in Asheville. It worked out pretty well. There are some nice waterfall hikes
in the Dupont State Forest and the fall colors were better in the Asheville section of the Blueridge Parkway. The staff is very friendly and helpful about information around the immediate area. We needed a non-smoking, no pet room so we stayed on the 2nd floor. The room was clean, a little musty so we had to open the window. The shower was like an enclosed fiberglass shell which was interesting. I liked it. The room had a microwave and a small refrigerator. The beds were comfortable. The mattress box spring was a little stained on the side but not dirty. The breakfast was fine to start the day. The hot food: circular scrambled egg shapes (look prefab but tasted fine), either bacon or sausage, biscuits and gravy and a waffle maker. Other choices: cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, toast, bagels, apples, bananas and misc danish, orange juice, apple juice, milk, coffee, tea, instant oatmeal. There's a few fast food places nearby and a couple of
restaurants. We opted to drive near to UNC and try Papas and beer (just okay). Ice makers are on first and third floor right across from the elevator. For the price and the amenities we were pleased with our stay.

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor for a non-smoking, no pet room.

We appreciate you taking the time to write such a thorough and thoughtful post that is informative and helpful for future travelers. We are sorry that Washington's incompetence forced your plans to change, but happy you were able to take in the beauty of the fall colors of DuPont and Pisgah have to offer.

Nice room, clean and comfortable. Several dining choices nearby. We tried one that was advertised on a door key and were pleased. The staff was warm and helpful. The WiFi worked well. We wish all our stays were this pleasant.

Knowing we b would e using the room only as a place to sleep, we relied on the reviews on Tripadvisor and booked a room at the Sleep Inn West for two nights. The lobby was a bit sparce, but the people at the front desk were efficient and helpful.

The room was basic but clean and comfortable.There were a fridge and amicrowave as well as a coffemaker in the room. The sink and vanity was in the room itself which was a good thing. The bathroom was rather small and there was no tub, but the shower was roomy. The bed was comfortable. I felt the room was a bit dark, but we did not spend much time in it.

When making reservations, we made sure to ask for a room on the second floor because we had read that smoking was allowed on the third. We did get a second floor room with a view of the mountains. There was no hint of smoke.

There is no ice maker on the second floor, but there is one on the first floor and another on the third, so that posed no problems for us.

The area seems rather commercial, but we felt safe.The hotel is located on a hill near the Interstate but it is very quiet.. It is easy to get to the Biltmore and other attractions. There are several chain restaurants close by.

Room Tip: If you don't smoke, ask for a room on the first or second floor.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property.

That's very much what we are here: a clean, friendly hotel that offers lower prices that the "fancy" spots downtown, and better service and cleaner rooms than the drive-up exterior corridor motels. As per your review, interested guests should inquire about rooms on non-smoking floors (1 and 2) and/or mountain view rooms (on floors 2 and 3).

We are glad you stayed with us and hope to see you again!

It was a nice place for the price. It wasn't as close to any attraction as I thought but it was close to the hwy and only a short drive any where in Asheville. Rooms were clean and comfortable and staff was helpful and friendly. The free breakfast was decent. No hassles checking in or out.

Room Tip: Stay on top floor if light sleeper. Walls and ceiling do let some noise and vibration through.
