“GREAT SERVICE NICE FRIENDLY STAFF & MANAGEMENT (STAY HERE)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2010

WE had an unfortinate trip delay with problems with our motorhome
.
WE origanilly selected this Days inn because of convenience but it turned out that it was loaded with excellant people BUT IT very affordable great value and pet friendly Peaches loved it.

THE people in the office Billy, Ssamantha The GeneralMgr. Marise Unforttantly the one young lady that worked in evenings i did not remember her nameONE as well as Donna that prepaired breakfast and dinner was very friendly and treated us like we was special guest.

IF you get this kind of service for six (6) weeks from everyone including hpuse keeping, office & maintenancestaff then it must be real.

Stay here for sure
I hope Donna's mom is doing well.
Thanks again
Jan & Homer

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review. We try to make all our guests feel at home, but when you stay with us for an extended period, you might as well be inducted into the family :-) We enjoyed having you stay with us too and hope you will visit us again under more favorable circumstances. We will always remember you and little Peaches very fondly. Best wishes from your Days Inn Asheville West family. Sincerely, Marise (GM)

Wonderful friendly, clean hotel. Located about 15 minutes from downtown, but worth the distance. Rooms are VERY clean. They clean and actually air-out the furniture. Our low rate of $35.00 plus tax included a pm meal and breakfast the next morning.
Owners are always painting and keeping the place in great shape!
I've traveled all over the world and find this to be a gem.
Nothing in Asheville compares at this rate

From Billy at the front desk to the attendant at breakfast, this is all you need away from home. Easy access off the interstate, microwave, frig, coffee, FREE SUPPER--simple but excellent--FREE Breakfast (pastries, juice, coffee, individually wrapped eggs to keep them warm!, biscuits & gravy, cereal, etc,), Plus in front of our room, a secluded meadow with GRILL, picnic tables, horshoe pits!!! Children could run and yell and no one would be bothered. Built on a hill so you really feel like out-in-the-country but just a few minutes to Biltmore and everywhere else. In the other direction at the same interchange is a SUPER antique mall stuffed with vintage toys--looks like a tour of Roadshow!

NoFrillsNeeded is a very nice moniker and for travellers who do not expect any of the frills provided by a 3 star or higher hotel, we are a perfect choice. The staff at the Days Inn Asheville West takes pride in providing excellent customer service, which we believe is priceless. In fact, we do our best to go above and beyond what is expected of a 2 star motel. From pleasant, courteous and helpful staff to clean rooms and a quiet, family-friendly atmosphere we offer the best value in the Asheville area. Being just outside the Asheville city limits, yet only 12 miles from downtown Asheville and the Biltmore Estate and only minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherokee, Chimney Rock and several West NC waterfalls, we offer a convenient, yet lower-priced option than most hotels in the area. Thank you for adding to the increasing number of favorable reviews and for recommending us. We look forward to serving you again. Sincerely, Manager, Days Inn Asheville West.

This was a very small town and the people here were wonderful. In particular, the desk clerk, Billy, was so accomodating! He called to check that we were in the room and that everything was satisfactory. Room rate was very reasonable and the room was quite clean. Also free dinner and breakfast.

It is always a joy to read our guest reviews since they reflect the care we take to ensure that each guest has a satisfactory experience. Most of our guests compliment us on our rates that offer the best value in the Asheville area. We strongly believe that low budget rates should not translate to substandard service and we always aim for the best for our guests. Asheville is approaching the beautiful leaf season and we hope that as usual, many will choose to enjoy the glorious mountain views and color change with us this October. Thank you for taking the time and we hope to be of service to you again. Sincerely, Manager, Days Inn Asheville West.

Our stay at this motel was a delight. It is in a good central location. The rooms were very clean,and the staff was among the friendliest I have seen. The lady that took care of the food was a true delight.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the Days Inn Asheville West and I am happy to know that you along with an increasing number of guests have discovered the delight of our excellent customer service and clean accomodations. This surge of positive reviews has made a significant impact on our business, especially after a slow winter when I-40 was closed for 6 months due to a rock slide. We hope you will have a chance to visit us again and enjoy Donna's free suppers. Sincerely, Manager, Days Inn Asheville West

I am delighted to read your review. Billy is my newest guest service agent and has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He is one of the friendliest, kindest and most courteous gentlemen I have ever met and epitomizes the phrase "Southern hospitality". I am very pleased to have him on my staff, all of whom take pride in offering the best service possible. It is very clear from our reviews that all the hard work this team has put in to improving the Days Inn Asheville West in the last few years has not gone unnoticed. Thank you, GM.

After a very long drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway, my exchange student & I were exhausted and simply looking for a place to sleep. I found this hotel in the Room Saver's booklet for about $10. more than I had paid for parking alone in our 4 star DC hotel the previous nights so I wasn't expecting much. We checked in at almost midnight so didn't get to sample the free dinner but we were really just praying for a "clean" place to sleep.

After climbing to the 3rd floor, upon unlocking the door, we were very pleasantly surprised. Room was very clean, plenty of clean towels & toiletries too. Beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows. Plus, our room had a mini fridge & microwave. WiFi was free although slow at times. Yes, the carpet could have been newer but then they could have charged a lot more too.

Wake up call was spot on ... breakfast was very good. Staff was very friendly and more than happy to help with directions.

All in all ... the best value of our entire vacation. I will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and absolutely will stay here again if ever in the area.
