“Very Convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

You are not going to find a better value downtown. This is no resort, but the rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. The beds are good and even having a room street side we were able to sleep well through the night. If you are an extremely light sleeper, you might want to request a pool side room.

Close to everything, park your car – yes it is a very tiny parking area – and just walk. The map they give you for Asheville makes everything look far away, it is not. Get out and walk … you will not be disappointed.

While the Downtown Inn is an old style motel with rooms that you enter from the outside, we found our room to be very clean and met all of our needs. The continental breakfast was not spectacular, but was OK if you don't want an elaborate spread. The pool area was nice and clean, but did not have many chairs. Only 8 chairs around tables and 4 lounge chairs. Parking was easy and secure behind a fence. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Our first room had a steady drip from the ceiling onto the bed, but they moved us promptly and gave us a discount off of that nights charge. The biggest pluses for the hotel are the price and the location. We stayed 6 nights for less than 2 nights at most other downtown hotels. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go downtown and we were close to hiking and inner tubing on the French Broad River. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back away from the street.

This hotel shows it's age, but has friendly staff and clean rooms. Being right downtown, coupled with free parking and very affordable rates makes a very convenient visit to Asheville's restaurants and beer culture. The Thirsty Monk and Green Man are in the same block, Asheville Brewing Co. and French Broad are a couple blocks away.
As Julia R already posted, try to get a room facing the mountains (the pool side). The rooms facing the street are incredibly noisy. Our first night was on the street side and was fitful, even on the third floor. Fortunately they were able to change our room to the "quiet" side for the remaining two nights.

We wanted to stay in downtown to check out the breweries without having to wiry about driving. After reading the reviews on tripadvisor, we cautiously chose the Downtown Inn.  Happy to say we were not disappointed!

Front desk was helpful with information on area and recommendations for diner. Room was nice and clean. Air conditioning on when we arrived. Breakfast was good the next morning. 

All in all, convenient location and a great stay. We will definitely be back!

If you don't the frayed edges& bad decor in the lobby and a ok breakfast, but want very clean beds good housekeeping & service, attentive check in + the perfect Down town location for bars& restaurants within 2- 3 mins walk. I recommend this hotel as it is very reasonably price for a down town hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room at rear of hotel on the upper floors for a view of mountains.

We spent three nights at the hotel. The room was basic, yet clean. Bed is a bit soft, and comforter and pillows are rather old. Basic continental breakfast (pastries, fresh fruit, cereal, coffee, bagels, etc) is free. We found that it is still a great value, as the hotel is within walking distance to all points of interest that we wanted to visit. Make sure to ask for a “mountain view” room – it is much quieter than street-facing rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for a mountain-view room, it is quieter than street-facing rooms.
