My friend and I stayed one night only. We had a room each. Both rooms were very clean, spacious, comfortable and great value for money. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms quiet. We had a great nights sleep. The staff on the front desk were very friendly and the lady serving at the bar very helpful. This hotel... More

This hotel is not downtown, but on the 'outside' of the tunnel on Tunnel Road. Most will access it from Interstate 240, and from there is can be a little tough to find. Access is from a traffic light on Tunnel, and there is only a small sign at the turn that is shared with the Cracker Barrel and Outback... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, and thank you for staying with us! As I'm sure you read in other reviews we are not allowed to have a sign near the road due to city laws. We do usually tell people to look for the outback sign and turn at that traffic signal. Hopefully your review... More

This hotel is not downtown! More like a mile from downtown, you will be driving. That, however, is the biggest knock against the place. The staff was courteous, the pool area small but indoor/outdoor, the hot tub was hot but for some reason did not have any air being infused in the jets. The room was a two bedroom King... More

Thank you so much for not only staying with us again, but for reviewing our property and giving us a great idea.

Hotel was clean and the views were quite pretty. Only a short drive into the downtown core of Asheville and to the Biltmore VIllage area. You do need a car to get around, but cabs are fairly cheap (though hard to find). The staff were really helpful and were quite knowledgeable about tourist options.

The area is not "downtown" but the nice, clean rooms with a decent view and the helpful, friendly staff make the room rate and $5 cab fare to downtown totally worth it!!! It is walking distance to some restaurants but again, it is NOT downtown Asheville.
