Stopped in Asheville for a two night stay at the Brookstone as a stopover to home from Myrtle Beach area and to visit the Biltmore Estate. While the hotel is older yet renovated and on a busy highway, it was perfect for our needs. It is conveniently located close to downtown Asheville, the Biltmore (1 1/2 miles), and expressways. We found the public spaces clean, the staff friendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffet in the morning very nice with both warm and cold selections. (How many places still offer you 5 different juices in the morning?) We played games around the fireplace at night and had the place to ourselves, even though the hotel was sold out. The pool was nice but a little on the cool side, so we used the jacuzzi instead. They have a small shop behind the front desk for snacks and they had popcorn which we popped in the room. The rooms aren't the best with sound but the hallways were relatively quiet none-the-less. Rooms are spacious and clean with microwave, small frig, flat screen tv and fast wireless internet. Beds and pillows were a bit on the hard side, but had nice linens. The room was decorated nicely. The bathroom was the only negative comments I could bring up, with a bit of a mildew problem with the grout about the tub. ( Seems to be the norm with hotels who have gone to the larger slabs of granite to surround the older tubs with the rounded shower curtain rods.) Certainly nothing to deter a stay at this nice reasonably priced hotel. I would highly recommend to the value seeker.
