The motel was somewhat clean. My husband and I had a room on the first floor.( handicapped equipped) The room itself was clean, but there was black mold around the shower enclosure. The rack to hang garments on broke off the wall. The noise level of the hall way was horrible. People talking loud, slamming doors, etc. The person in... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We opted for early check in and our room was ready for us. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was ample with many choices, including some hot items. No surprises here.

All non-smoking rooms? Maybe 5 years ago. Acrid smell was not pleasant. If it had not been so late and nearby Asheville had not been all booked up in every hotel we called and stopped to check on i40 and then on i-26, I would have taken time to talk to someone about a different room. Smoke Smell was pretty... More

I was happy with the accommodations and the service by the staff members. The bedroom was large with a comfortable bed and chairs. The hotel was quiet and allowed me to get some work done in the evening. The breakfast buffet had a wide variety of items available for a quick meal before departing.

I stayed in a King Suite and it was clean, well appointed with a comfortable bed and quality linens. I couldn't have asked for more. The breakfast was great with a variety of hot and cold items. It was clean and the coffee was really good.

Best Express I've stayed at. Decent breakfast, clean rooms, comfortable beds, Alex I believe that's his name working at the front desk was awesome, went out of his way to ensure his guests where taken care of. He's a great asset to this Hotel.

Hotel is kept clean and neat. I wish it could have had a swimming pool for kids. The only negative issue was that the front desk person asked us to keep it quite in the lobby at around 7 pm. I think that was a little bit inappropriate.
