Was visiting Asheville for a friend's wedding, and found this hotel which was much cheaper than other hotels, but a bit farther away from the wedding. The location right off the exit was convenient enough since I had a rental with GPS. Being cheap, I didn't expect much more than your average road motel, which is pretty much what this Days Inn is. The room was reasonable, but the main problems were thin walls - the room I was in had a door to the next one and you could hear anything they did nextdoor. You can also hear whenever somebody goes up or down what must be the loudest metal stairs ever constructed. In the mornings there was a strange smell I couldn't identify outside, fortunately it didn't smell too bad inside the room, or at least I couldn't smell it once I went back in.
Some of the staff were friendly enough, others less so. But checking in or switching my key when it stopped working meant a solid 15-20 minute wait while the women behind the desk had to wrangle with the computer which seemed to be running MS-DOS from circa 1987. Not good if you have a meeting or dinner you're running late for.
I'd say this Days Inn is OK if you're passing through for a night or two and really want to save some cash. If you're willing to shell out a few more bucks it might be worth it to go somewhere else.
