“Trip Away”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Wonderful staff who were very courteous. The room was clean and tidy. Interesting location that is very close to downtown Asheville. The only probem was with sleeping...haha. The bed I believe was made of poured concrete...so incredibly hard! We actually considered making the trip home versus staying the night due to the level of discomfort. Very interesting.

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for a more comfy bed when checking-in.

Thank You for taking time to write a review about us. We like to apologize to you if you found our beds too hard. It is interesting to hear about our beds being too hard. We have had couple of review that said that the beds are too soft. I know that it is preference which depends upon individuals, but please consider us for your lodging needs in future.

On a trip from Maryland to Tennessee we decided to stop over in Asheville for a couple of nights with no reservations anywhere and wing it. We stopped at a couple and happened upon this Holiday Inn after trying to navigate the downtown area. I spoke with Kenneth at the front desk and he had several rooms left. Kenneth and the rest of the staff were awesome. He gave us a suite for two nights at an awesome price, which we assumed meant a terrible room. We were wrong. The room was awesome and very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for several days in early July 2013. All staff including front desk and housekeeping were wonderful. Professional, courteous and responsive to every request. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Very easy access in and out of the hotel complex. Just a few minutes drive to Asheville's center city. Close to shopping, lots of restaurants and sites to see in and around this great city. Could not have been more pleased.

Room Tip: Third floor was great but others looked equally nice.

While this Holiday Inn is beginning to show some wear, the location is very convenient to Downtown activities, The location is also located next to and near many Restaurants and Shops. Getting there is easy; 40 to 240. Lastly, the Front Desk, in particular, Becky and Brian were very helpful with Questions and Directions.

Room Tip: Priority Club upgrade to a Suite'

This is a nice and clean hotel. It is close to highway with the easy access. But, it is very quiet in the room. We all had very good sleep for the night. The front desk people are very friendly. We got two connected rooms which both of them are clean and comfortable. They have very good speed for the wifi connection in the room. The hotel is close to both Biltmore estate and downtown.

My wife and I were on a 2,000 mile motorcycle trip and just picked this hotel out of the many lodging options in the Asheville area. The room was very nice and clean. The bed was more comfortable than my own! And the breakfast was better than most hotel's "deluxe" continental breakfasts.

The tell tail sign of a great hotel is how the staff responds when something does go right. Without going into details, we had a minor bump when we wanted to do a couple loads of laundry in the provided washer and dryer; the soap vending machine didn't work. The front desk staff went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. Becky, one of the delightful front desk staff people, made our small problem a priority to be resolved to our satisfaction.

Highly recommended!

This was the perfect place for us to stay. It is not downtown, but very convenient and easy to get there. I wouldn't attempt to walk it. Very nice desk clerk and she upgraded my room selection to a great sized king suite. My only complaint is, when I registered it stated I was to receive breakfast coupons for being Priority Club. When I got to the room, I had one coupon for a free drink! Not what I wanted, but didn't feel like complaining and let it go.
