“PLUSES AND MINUSES”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2011

The Best Western Tunnel Road is a mixed offering. On the plus side, the location is convenient to downtown Asheville and nearby attractions, the rooms are spacious, have been recently remodeled and the end result is a much nicer room that you might expect at your typical economy hotel. There is also a complimentary breakfast and a swimming pool, although the pool is in front of the hotel, on a busy road, so the atmosphere is lacking, but what do kids care about that? My major complaint with the hotel was the airconditioning system in the room. It put out plenty of cold air, but it was one of these units that shuts down completely when the desired temp is reached. Then when it warms up again, the unit kicks back on with considerably noise and proceeds to blow high volumes of cold air right onto your head, since the in-wall unit is right next to the head boards of the beds. This made for a very poor sleep and an uncomfortable night. If this is not a big deal to you, the hotel was well priced, in an expensive city, and offerered more than many economy hotels.

The rooms were nicer than I expected, the bed was comfortable. It was very hot when we were there, I was worried about the air-conditioner (from a previous review) - but it was very good. The staff was ok. The pool was really nice, and open late - until 10pm! The location was very nice - with downtown Asheville only 2-3 miles away. There's a car rental shop just down the street, if you need it. There is a mall less than a mile away, as well as restaurants. I would stay again.

I can't believe the bed bugs review is true. I'm awakened by the icheness and writing this review instead of getting a good sleep before headig back to work.

My family stayed in this hotel for one night during our trip. Despite the good things I read from other reviews, I should've taken it seriously about the one review for bud bugs. The window A/C unit makes so much noice that I couldn't sleep tight. Then I felt icheness and welts around my wrists, I covered my wrists and arms with the blanket and tried to get back to sleep. But I was awakened again with iches and welts around my angles and feets. I got though the night thinking it must be myself for the icheness. But when I asked around in the morning, both my wife and father-in-law had the same welts. The worst thing is that the icheness gets worse as time goes by and I had welts on my arms, legs, lower back and even one on my head.

Avoid it as this put a big stint on my otherwise perfect trip!

Nice and clean motel with friendly service, conveniently located off the interstate. Great breakfast with omelets and waffles. Large outdoor pool and good tv channel selection. Best of all, it is only minutes from one of the best bbq joints ever, Ruby's BBQ Shack!
