We stayed 3 nights; thought the motel was well located and our room was in a quiet spot well back from the busy street. Front desk staff was not overly friendly, which was very different from our general Asheville experience, but they were capable enough. Breakfast was plentiful, but uneven in quality. Very greasy meats, dry eggs, low quality baked goods. On the plus-good juices, waffle maker, cereal variety and fresh fruits. The toaster worked well. The staff worked very hard to keep the food coming, especially on a very busy Sunday morning. In the room, there was a king bed and two tired but nicely sized chairs. The drapes are good and pretty light tight if you want to sleep in. The room looked quite nice and acceptably clean when we checked in. I felt pretty safe there.
Now for the downsides. Saturday night, late return and NO parking in the main lot. But, there was a junk car parked there for a couple days with a for sale sign in the window. Mattress was way past its prime..I slept sideways one night, trying to find a spot to give some back support. TV card showed about 75 channels, but only 20 actually came in. The micro-fridge combo unit had a buzz so loud it sounded like an alarm clock when it kicked in. We solved the problem by piling about 20 pounds of stuff on top of the microwave, to kill the vibration. How could we hear that buzz, you ask? The air conditioner WAS SO LOUD, we had to shut it off at night so we could sleep. Really! And when we did have it on, it was like a blast freezer, with no control or hold cycle. Just full ON and loud, or OFF... so you could hear the micro fridge buzz. We also found that there were totally inadequate outlets in the room for the number of personal appliances we travel with. Under the desk, the hotel had a 6plex totally filled with their stuff, TV, lights, fridge, desk lamp etc. The outlets next to the A/C and behind the bed are inaccessible. The only remaining outlet is at the sink, and the geniuses have installed it sideways, so you really can't plug in more than one item. Not well thought out. Finally, and this happened at another hotel on this trip, too...the alarm clock is set for midnight, and turned on so you get scared out of your pants by some screaming radio station in the middle of the night. I should have known enough to check, but shouldn't the housekeeper do that? This hotel charged us a "senior rate" of $99 for Saturday and $67 each night for Sunday and Monday. Really not a bargain. We drove 800 miles the next day just to get home and sleep in our own bed.
