Biggest breakfast selection anywhere. Food was very good. Hotel was clean & quiet. Bed was comfortable. Would recommend. The area was only about 1.5 miles from downtown and close to the expressway, but not so close to be noisy. Would stay there again.

This is our first time staying at a Country Inn & Suites. This hotel was just renovated. The rooms were very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast is included with the stay. Overall, We look for a clean sleeping area and a clean bathroom and this property had both. The property is 1 mile from downtown Asheville.... More

Hello and whew! I was worried for a minute when I saw "foo" as this review heading. I thought we had not met your expectations. I am pleased that we in fact did! I am so happy you found the cleanliness of our rooms to be excellent, and that you enjoyed the free breakfast! Please stay with us again! More

Nice lodging that is convenient to downtown, good dining, tourism. Would definitely stay at this facility if ever in this area again. The breakfast, which is better than offered in most hotels, was not of the quality that I would expect, but then, this isn't a Cracker Barrel!

After a long but spectacular drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Country Inn and Suites gave us some time to get our breath back. Situated on busy Tunnel Road might not seem the best spot to relax, but it is set back from the road, so traffic is less of an issue. Our room was on the 4th floor... More

Hello winded traveler! The views from the Blue Ridge Parkway really do take your breath away, and in some cases, bring tears to the eyes from the incredible beauty! I am glad you found us to be a great place to recoup from your drive. You are correct in your assessment that Tunnel road is very busy with traffic, but... More

Enjoyed a recent Sunday night stay with my two kids aged 12 and 11 after a rainy day of exploring Smoky Mountain Natl Park. We arrived around 820 and check in was efficient. The room, a one bedroom suite, was nice and large, with a flat screen tv in the bedroom and another in the living area. That was helpful!... More

This hotel is near to all the attractions in Asheville. The staff was very eager to help us find quality arts and crafts studioa. It was a good location for us to do a 100 mile road trip on the Blue Rige Parkway.

Three night stay, breakfast was better than most provided at similar hotels. Good stay, nothing fancy but everything worked well. Location good for downtown eating and art district and close to blue ridge entrance ramps. Was there during a "peak" weekend so prices are high everywhere in Asheville but this fit in the budget.

Room smelled fresh. Accomodations were clean and comfortable. Breakfast good with a variety of items. Good coffee....important to me. Swimming pool and whirl pool clean. Could stand to be spruced up a bit. Employees friendly and helpful. When we visit Asheville again, we will stay at this location. Nice extras....cookies, coffee, newspaper, and books.

Stayed four nights quite comfortably. I was worried when my room was by the elevator but it was perfectly quiet. The small workout room was clean and the equipment new. The staff was very, very friendly. The location is great for people on vacation or on business. You are a 5 minute drive into downtown hipster Asheville and the restaurants... More
