We wanted to see the Biltmore flowers in bloom, but found that most reasonable hotels were booked. Others wanted $300+ per night. We saw a couple of good reviews on Tripadvisor for the Aberdeen Inn, and decided to give it a try. I think that some of the reviewers who were put off by Tom, the owner, did not "get" his humor. He was very personable and a very good chef. If you don't want to interact with people except on a business only basis, go to a hotel and hand over your card to the desk personnel, get your key and be on your way.
Tom was very helpful with information on Asheville sights and restaurants. The Rose Room was so nice, furnished with a king sized canopy bed, comfy chairs and loads of antiques. There was a working fireplace with a complimentary fire log to burn. The bathroom was very small ( a converted closet ) but certainly functional. If you are a very large person, it might not be the room for you.
There were many thoughtful touches including coffee service early in the morning in the hallway outside the room, cold spring water in the hallway, generous offerings of wine in the lobby during the afternoons and evenings, well supplied rooms, a nice deck and porch for relaxing.
The Inn is a short drive to all attractions and just a few minutes from the Grove Park Inn with its restaurants and ambience.
