Stayed at this location because it was highly rated on TripAdvisor. The best attribute was the service. Front desk staff were very efficient and friendly on several occasions. The hotel had an indoor pool we didn't use, but it seemed large enough, although right off the breakfast area with big windows and not very private. The free breakfast was decent with a mix of hots and colds. The room was probably the biggest downside. It was fairly outdated with ceiling tiles in the bathroom, holes in the old bathroom wallpaper from multiple former fixtures, and some "classic" glass-top end tables. I guess the Country Inn chain is budget-oriented, but at $150 a night (Asheville is a pricey place to stay), you kinda expect a little more style for the buck. Our friends staying across the street at the Hampton Inn had a MUCH nicer room, I will say, but they probably paid a bit more too. Our room was quiet, which was nice, but the view to the rear of the property was just an embankment. Nothing special. For that matter, the view from the front of the hotel was just a parking lot with a lot of potholes and a busy four-lane highway. You could walk to IHOP and Waffle House from this hotel, if that floats your boat, but otherwise, everything must be driven to. Tunnel Road is a BUSY highway with no turning lanes, so it was a bit of a risky venture turning into and out of this hotel's parking lot on a steep hill. So all in all, it was just okay. I'm not sure why folks are raving about this hotel on TripAdvisor. Good service, just nothing special in terms of views, rooms, or location.
