We had not been to Asheville before. Toured the Biltmore Estate and came back to this Holiday Inn that we had booked. The immediate area has a number of what I would describe as old tourist hotels from back in the day. 50-60 year old hotels with signs with hillbilly's smoking corn cob pipes, etc. Also a number of low end restaurants. Not scary, just sort of down on it's heels.
This Holiday Inn was adequate enough. Seemed to be filled with area folks, this was a Thursday night and the pools were filled with families, kids, and couples. Which we thought strange for a weekday in April. Nevertheless, the room was clean, and had a decent view of the surrounding hills.
There was an Outback I believe behind the parking lot, and that served for dinner. We probably wouldn't stay here again, there must be more picturesque and better located hotels in Asheville, but it was alright for one night.
