My partner and I stayed here one night after visiting the Biltmore. The hotel is about ten minutes from the Biltmore, located right off the interstate for easy access. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. For being a priority club member we received a token for a few dollars off the Big Owl Restaurant located in their hotel and two cards for a free breakfast buffet which I talk about later in the review. The room we stayed in was very nice and we had no issues with the wireless internet. We ate dinner at the Big Owl and it was very good, big portions, and reasonably priced. A few negative comments… I found two bugs in the room, the first bug was on the wall outside of the bathroom which I took a tissue to and killed it. The next morning I saw that same type of bug on the bathroom floor. This time I couldn’t kill it because I was too slow being that I just woke up. The fan in our bathroom ran constantly, the door to the bathroom had to be closed to help quiet the noise, since we only stayed one night it wasn’t worth complaining and moving all out stuff to another room. I heard an occasional train go by, it wasn’t that bad but if you are a light sleeper it may be an annoyance. We ate at the breakfast buffet at the Big Owl in the morning but noticed that people were just getting up and leaving. The breakfast was complimentary and I’m not sure why they gave us those free breakfast buffet cards other than a make you feel important for a little bit at check in. I noticed the cards stated “free breakfast buffet at the Lodge Restaurant.” I am not sure if this was the old restaurant name or someplace outside the hotel. If the cards were for the restaurant inside the hotel; shame on the hotel for acting like priority club members are getting something special. If “The Lodge” is someplace else outside the hotel; shame on the hotel for not telling us where that was. Other than the few flaws I pointed out, the hotel is very nice for the value.
