We chose this hotel as it was reasonably priced compared to most other hotels in the Asheville area and other reviewers seemed to give it the thumbs up.
We arrived at the hotel at 9.30am after an overnight flight, we were all very tired and the lady on reception was able to check us in straight away which was fantastic as it enabled us to get a few extra hours of much needed shut eye.
We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds which were very comfortable. The room did look fairly modern as far as motels go but it was very dark and dingy. There was a very small bathroom, probably too small for a family of 4 staying in the same room and the towels were unbelievably tiny which made it difficult to get fully dry.
The bathroom's fan was out of order for our entire stay which resulted in the room being very damp. Even with the air con on, the feeling of damp was constant. This also attracted a few insects, including waking up to giant wasp on our first morning!
The pool was nice, good size and had a basketball net in it for the more playful swimmers. Breakfast was good, a good range of hot and cold items, hot drinks and juices.
We booked a taxi into downtown Asheville which cost around $10. This is a great place to visit on an evening, it has a vibrant nightlife and could be described as a mini-San Francisco. Lots of breweries downtown therefore beer is dirt cheap! :)
To summarise my stay here, I would emphasise that it is a MOTEL and any potential bookers should bear this in mind. Because of the good reviews and the fact the hotel had been refurbished I had imagined it to be a bit more glam than it is in reality. Although the facilities and amenities were good, what let me down was the poor lighting and dampness of the room, it made for what was a slightly disappointing stay. If I was to visit Asheville again I would choose different accommodation.
