Even though we confirmed our reservation and we paid in advance for 3 days. We arrived only to find that our room was given away because we arrived after 6 PM. But not all was lost.....there just happened to be one room available at a much higher rate. Since the clerk was uncooperative and we hadn't any options we stayed.... More

I booked this hotel and called back immediately because I was unable to make my reservations. The owner was extremely rude and told me he would not give any refund. I called back the next day and he was screaming over the phone "no refund"! I don't understand how someone could be so rude to customers?? I will never stay... More

We turned the wrong way to the hotel we were going to stay. Saw this place. It looked nice and clean. There were quite a few cars, so we decided to try it. Glad we did. Saved enough for a nice breakfast. The room was very small, but super clean. Bed was great. Sheets were super white, clean and crisp.... More

My husband and I drove through a night from Chicago to NC and were exhausted, and this was the first motel we came across in Asheville. We asked the manager if we could just stay there for the day, not even a night. He said the rate was $85 which I found to be high, but we accepted. We got... More

This was by far my worst hotel experience ever! I only choose to stay at this motel so that I could get to work during some bad weather. It seemed like a less expensive place but not a nasty place and boy was I wrong! The room was very very tiny especially for a family of 3! The second day... More

The owners don't invest any money or time to keep this motel up. The walls are dirty and where they did paint, it was just spot painting and of course the paint didn't match the existing paint. And why isn't there any electical outlets in the bathroom? Women need that. The toilet leaked and had to constantly put layers of... More

For being what it was I was pleasantly surprised. When we called to reserve a room the staff wanted us to arrive as soon as possible rather than in a few hours like we'd been planning. So frustrating but not impossible. The room we were assigned was apparently a smoking room as evidenced by a lingering scent and an ashtray... More

This hotel isnt close to anything, its a rat-hole motel, the owners got confrontational after I tried to get out of my reservation. I felt threatened by Kenny and no one else spoke english. My advice? Stay away

On August 30, 2014 I contacted Hotels-Rates.com while in transit to Asheville, North Carolina due to a family emergency. The representative told me that there was a room available at Whispering Pines and proceeded to provide me with the typical information about the room. He further stated that the establishment was rated with 3 stars, but he failed to explain... More
