“Worst hotel”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

This place is a dive. Choice Hotels should be ashamed to have it under their name. it is rundown. There was grafetti on the nightstand and stains on the washcloths.The bedspread was filthy. Someone had messed with the peephole in the door so you couldn't look out. There were people hanging out outside of our room. Needless to say we left and had to pay big bucks to go to the Sleep Inn. This place should be called no tell motel. I agree with the Buyer Beware review. Should have gone with that one.

I had a meeting in asheville and had to spend two nights. Unfortunetely I was running low on money and when I searched the hotels around I found this hotel to be very cheap and with great breakfast. Rooms were so comfortable. I was glad and enjoyed my stay

Couldn't believe the rates for this nice property! Even though a very light breakfast bar, the room prices made up for it. Our bathroom needed some TLC, but that was our only complaint. A trip to historic downtown Asheville, which is right down the street, is definitely worthwhile!

I am currently staying here. Went to sleep at 12. I was awoken by what I thought was drunken partiers. Tried to go bak to sleep only to be disturbed again. Went outside to see what was going on. A "lady" and her pimp were arguing over which rooms she had to service next. She stated she still had 5 more rooms for the night. If you like staying at a place where suspicious activity occurs them by all means stay here. If not, down the extra cash and stay somewhere nicer.

Decent price. Cleaning staff inadequate as they neglected to clean our room on the second day. Peeling paint and excessive dust behind the bathroom door. Breakfast was barely continental. Good Waffle House across the street.

Desk person was polite but has zero knowledge regarding local attractions such as the numerous falls in the area and their accessability.

Would strongly consider the Country Inn across the street on my next trip. Also, a couple was checking in when I arrived and somehow there was some sort of an issue with the room they reserved. I believe they wanted a kingsize but settled for two queens.

Our reservations at the property's website rate were "canceled" according to the clerk whose story was that the credit card was refused. He still had a room at three times the website rate. Needless to say we started to look elsewhere for a room. He 'helpfully' knew of a property 2 blocks away that had good rates and availability. We went to look and found an older motel style property that was clean, well-lit, with a personable manager. We booked for our two night stay. Funny though, our credit card worked fine at this property. I checked with the bank and found that the card had never been run by the Economy Lodge. Tried complaining to Choice Hotels customer service and was completely blown off by the representative. During our stay at the other property we discovered two other parties that had the exact same story - canceled reservation, try 2 blocks down, availability there. It is obvious that the clerk is feeding rooms to the other property probably for a kickback in cash. Choice Hotels don't care apparently so we will no longer use that chain.
