“Great location for Biltmore visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Hotel staff is very professional and helpful with a smile. Close to the Biltmore and have tickets available for purchase to the estate. Rooms were clean and spacious with pillows marked soft or firm. Breakfast is an ample buffet of hot and cold dishes and fresh fruit.

Thank you for your business. We appreciate you staying at the award winning Holiday Inn Biltmore East. As you mentioned, the hotel is located in a perfect location...just 7 minutes to historic downtown Asheville and 10 minutes to the Biltmore Estate...and nestled in a mountain valley with scenic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The staff and management love to take care of their guests. We look forward to your return trip. Tim Rice, Mountaintop Management, LLC.

We stayed here for a couple nights during an impromptu family road trip. We found this hotel on bringfido.com and it had good reviews, so we thought we would give it a try. Wow...what an amazing stay! The hotel is clean and has great mountain decor. And the food at the onsite restaurant was surprisingly delicious!! Most outstanding, however, was the customer service. Every team member we encountered, from front desk to restaurant to housekeepers, were all so friendly!! Best of all, when they say they are pet friendly, they mean it! This is the most pet friendly hotel we've ever encountered! The pet fee is very reasonable, you can have more than one pet, and there are no size restrictions, which is perfect for us since we have a Yellow Lab and a Yorkie! Everyone took time to fuss over our furry babies and get to know them. They don't mind you leaving the pups in the room, just leave a number where they can reach you in case there is a problem! It's located on the very outskirts of town, but so worth it! Paws up for this gem!

Great customer service, friendly staff, decent rooms, pet friendly, close to stores & restaurants. The Blue Ridge Parkway is very close, if you like to travel along it. Scenic drive from hotel to Chimney Rock, about 30 minutes away. Stayed at this hotel 3 or 4 times now, and no bad experiences. Good place!

I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival how well-maintained the outside was and the decor inside the lobby was very tasteful and charming for the locale. Check-in and check-out was a breeze with friendly and helpful staff. The side entrance was very convenient to the elevator for unloading and loading luggage. However, for better security I would prefer a key-access only entrance for this door, as well as additional lighting.

The room was very clean and surprisingly spacious. We had a wonderful view from the 2nd floor. Refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker were very handy! The only thing that seemed odd was no vent in the bathroom...it made for a VERY steamy shower - which isn't totally bad!

We only stayed for a weekend and we aren't messy people so we opted for no housekeeping. I expected to ask for additional towels from the front desk, but housekeeping left us a bag of clean towels and soap outside our door without us having to ask!! We appreciated that very much!

The breakfast was more than adequate and very good! Eggs, hashbrowns, sausage, gravy, biscuits, bagels, toast, waffles, fresh fruit, yogurt, dry cereals, and breakfast drinks. The server was very busy clearing tables and keeping the buffet full. The only complaint the first morning was temperature was very cool in the dining area which allowed the plates to cool quickly. By the next morning it was very comfortable and we had hot plates! It was also VERY busy the next day and the server worked extra hard to keep up with the demand, but she still had a smile on her face!

Overall, 2 thumbs up experience and any issues were minor. By far, this is the best Holiday Inn I've stayed and I would definitely stay here again!

Stayed there while visiting the Biltmore Estate. Immediately upon entering the hotel, we were greeted by a welcoming smile at the front desk. The entrance and lobby were tastefully decorated and inviting. Employees were very friendly and accommodating. Room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. We had a striking view of the mountains. The waffles were the best part of the complimentary breakfast, the other items were cold on the morning that I was there. This is the best Holiday Inn that I have visited in a while. It is a great value for the location. It is easy off and on I-40 and not too far from area attractions. I will definitely stay there again and would recommend this place to others visiting the area.

This hotel is great. The restaurant is lovely. It is a short drive from Asheville and is in the vicinity of many great hotels. The pool was fantastic, there is a section inside and outside and it is connected through a so of river. The rooms are very nice and clean and the staff are rally helpful.

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies overlooking the main lobby/pool.
