Unfortunately i had not enough time, having to travel by public transportation to see it as I was leaving early on Monday morning and only there for the weekend. Downtown is buzzy and the best bit...

The Mountaineer Inn has a ton of character, and if you’re looking for something affordable but more interesting than the standard chain, this is your spot. Bonus features include a complimentary breakfast in the lobby with fresh bagels, donuts and fruit, plus a pool that stays open until 11pm! The rooms are standard, but very clean and also have a...

This place is exactly as advertised. It is an older place but it is very unique. The employees were all very friendly and nice. The rooms for the area are competitive and you are getting what you pay for. The rooms could use an upgrade but they add to the character of the place. They offer a decent breakfast of... More

Terrible experience!! Tiny bathroom- the toliet rocked-literally! No blow dryer available! Refrigerator was iced over and the door to it was open with towels shoved in it! The air unit was extremely loud! The carpet was disgusting and the bedding had a lot of stains! Never again will I let Onstar choose for me!

The best place to stay in a Asheville, family friendly, great staff, and prestigious wilderness all around... visit for a while, remember for a life time. The pool was clean and prolonging a healthy atmosphere, the security guard was very friendly, with outstanding morals toward his job and the teavors.

Professional, friendly customer service. Historical atmosphere. Pool, breakfast and a talk with 83 year old owner was memorable experience. Recommended for folks who remember the motor lodge era. We had a great stay at the Mountaineer!
