“Updated hotel in a great location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

This is NOT downtown but it is close to lots of little shops and nice restaurants. Downtown is just a short drive away. It is very close to the Biltmore. There were some ambulances, but other than that I sleep well. You may hear the train, but it wasn't loud. The pool is indoor and is nice for an indoor pool. The breakfast (included) offered a pretty good variety…eggs, bacon, potatoes, fresh whole and cut fruit, juice, coffee, waffles, cereals etc. The staff were very friendly. The place has been remodeled so the furniture, carpet etc feels new. The bathroom is older but clean. The rooms are a nice size. The bed in the bedroom was comfy with nice linens…quiet sleep. The pull out sofa bed was full of spings…ok for a small child but not for a teen or an adult. The full size fridge and small kitchen were great. The only disappointment was the gym: a treadmill, a bike and an elliptical. Nothing else. For a hotel this size and a Residence Inn I thought there would be more. If you are staying long term you can pay a reasonable fee to use a real gym down the street, but that's not an option for me traveling with little kids. I would stay here again.

A few years ago, I stayed at the Homewood Suites on Tunnel Rd in Asheville. It was ok. The Residence Inn is much better. We got a two bedroom suite. It has two queen sized beds with ensuite bathrooms. They are self contained. There is a cute little kichen with a full-sized fridge, stove, microwave, and dishwasher. There are dishes, silverware, coffee maker, toaster, and pots and pans. There is a great four chair table, a good-sized sofa with chaise, and a club chair with a gas fireplace! There isn't much of a view, but it wasn't bad. There's a common laundry. They have a breakfast, which is ok...reminded me of McDonald's pancakes and eggs...my kid who eats everything wouldn't eat the breakfast. There were some good bagels, muffins, and fruit. For a free breakfast, it was decent. We went to IHOP the next day and it was miles better. We didn't go to the receptions. Great little pool and hot tub...wish it stayed open longer. Staff is really nice. One guy seems like he works around the clock..saw him in the morning and then late at night, still working. Overal, this was a great place to stay with kids. We loved having the opportunity to make snacks or just relax. My teen liked having her own room. It was a great value, very clean, and tastefully decorated.

$280 total for 1 night. I'm sure there are many factors - summer, great locale weekend night, etc... It is what it is. But for $280 you'd think that some shampoo would be in the room. Nope. It is very nice tho. I do think it has the nicest breakfast area of anywhere else we've stayed. We have a family of 5 so we need places like this. I'm sure the people that stay here don't even blink at a $280 a night tho. Can't beat location. It really was a nice spot. I am still getting over what good hotels cost these days. I'll get over it! Wink

If I were to judge a book by its' cover, I might not have given this hotel such a high rating. It's a very unremarkable Residence Inn from the street. However, once inside, it's lovely.

This hotel appears to have been remodeled recently. Five of us stayed in a two-bedroom suite that was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The kitchen had stainless appliances and granite tops. There were three flat-screen tvs, and one queen bed in each room. We used a roll-away in the living room, and after re-arranging the living room, we had ease of movement around the place. It did block the kitchen area somewhat, so if you need to use a roll-away, instead of the sleeper sofa, you might consider folding it up when not in use.

The only complaint is that there was only one A/C switch in the living room. We wanted to make it cooler in our room which was impossible. The entire 2-bedroom unit was cooled by one thermostat; so, some of us were comfortable while others were freezing or too hot.

There is an indoor swimming pool and a very small workout room. The hotel is located in the Biltmore Village area with easy access to the Biltmore Estates, and even downtown Asheville.

The Front Desk staff was quite friendly, the lobby was very neat and contemporary, and the breakfast area was well-maintained and provided good food. We would consider staying here again.

Good experience, overall!

Average lobby to walk into, but staff was very nice and welcoming upon arrival. Room was very nice. Full size bed, suite. Room didn't have view of mountains...faced parking lot. Clean, spacious. Kids loved the room. Location was in between Biltmore and downtown...about half hour drive to mountains/Chimney Rock area. Pool was small~workout area small. Coffee was ready early in morning before breakfast, which was nice for our early departure. We'd stay again.

Room Tip: If would like a view, need to make request or talk with hotel staff before if possible.

Located midway between the entrance of Biltmore Estate and Downtown with easy access to the highway. Clean property. Accommodating front desk staff...upgraded our room without asking. Offers a weekday "social time" between 5-7 PM (we stayed for Memorial Day...they had hamburgers & hot dogs in a picnic style buffet...NICE TOUCH!) Would difinitely stay again!
