I arrived and was not greeted as a Marriott gold member. They gave me a key that didn't work. I went back down and they gave me another key. Went back up and it didn't work. So I told the guy to come back with me. Still didn't work. Then he tried resetting it and that didn't work. He said... More

Chinablonde - I am sorry that your door did not function properly.Sometimes the lock system can be very difficult to troubleshoot. We was at full capacity on the night of your stay, and it does take time to shift around pre blocked rooms. Your issues have been addressed, and I do appreciate your comments. I hope you will return to... More

We stayed here for 3 nights over a weekend. Upon arrival, it was raining and the entry had one vehicle and one unattended motorcycle in it. We had to wait for the car to move before we could get under the cover. Not an issue at the time, but the motorcycle remained in the carport for our entire stay. We... More

Stayed one night in June. Was impressed how clean the room was. It also seemed a good size. Very convenient to the expressway. Was at least a 20-30 minute drive from downtown Asheville. Much cheaper than downtown Asheville hotels. Breakfast was standard "free" motel food, good for yogurt and banana but not much else.

I've come to learn that all of these chains (Marriott Courtyard, Fairfield, Hampton Inn, Doubletree, etc) are pretty much the same. I expect and, for the most part, get a greeting when I arrive, a decent lobby, a clean room, good price, etc. You all get a '4' rating, it's your's to lose/gain. The good: All the things Marriott/Fairfield mentioned... More

This property is a disgrace to Marriott. Unclean, half of lot is gravel. Random old junk laying in parking lot. Stains on blankets. It honestly made me nervous to leave my car outside in their lot. Only plus is a fire station sits by property, in case the junky hotel bursts into flames. Oh and did I mention the random... More

Lovestotravel32, Thank you for taking time to review our property. The gravel lot is actually just a turn around space for motorcoaches, vehicles with trailers, etc. We do have a lot of long term guests that bring their charcoal grills. We do allow this because we want all of our long term guests to feel like this is their home... More

I was coming back from Pigeon Forge and it was late and I became too tired to drive home. Knowing Marriott quality as Platinum members, I chose this hotel. Karl at the front desk was outstanding as he made me feel completely welcome, recognized our status, and made me feel right at home. I was in room 509 which was... More

Stayed at this property during a road trip for only one night. Checked in late with a very friendly and considerate front desk associate. He made the process quick, easy and painless. Room was clean, neat, and looked like it was recently updated. It is conveniently located just off the highway in a cluster of hotels, so they should always... More
