“Here Now - Very Happy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We try to stay at Hampton Inns a lot of the time, as they are consistently good. This one does not disappoint. It's in a great central location for exploring Asheville and all it's sights including, of course, the Biltmore Estate. There is always the free warm breakfast and free parking and free Internet. Our double queen room is quite roomy and has a fridge and microwave. AND, this is the first hotel room we've had with so many lights! Usually, hotel rooms are poorly lit. There are other amenities that we're not using, including workout room, pool, etc. Our room seems nice and quiet; beds and pillows very comfortable. We would definitely come back to stay here again.

My husband and I recently spent a 4-night midweek stay at this Hampton Inn and were very pleased. The hotel has been recently refurbished and is clean, attractive and comfortable. It sits off the highway, up a hill, and is surrounded by trees and pretty landscaping.
It is about a 15 minute drive to the Biltmore Estate and to downtown Asheville. Although we used our own car to drive to Biltmore we did take advantage of the hotel's shuttle service to go downtown and out to dinner in the evenings. This was a nice benefit for us, as it allowed us to avoid traffic and parking issues. The only thing to remember is that they would like at least 30 minutes notice when you want to go somewhere or return. This was never a problem for us and we enjoyed visiting with the staff who shuttled us to and fro. (Be sure to check with the hotel as to the hours that the shuttle is available....on our visit it was from 8a.m. to 9:30pm)
The indoor pool/jacuzi area is spacious and very pretty with comfortable chairs. We made use of this area, as well as the adjacent outdoor patio. This was a great place to relax and unwind after a long drive to Ashville.
Just a short drive down Tunnel Road there are many of the usual chain restaurants. There is also an Italian (chain) restaurant right behind the hotel, about a one or two minute walk so no need to get back in the car.
We found the complimentary breakfast to offer a good variety of items and it was more than adequate for our needs. If you are in a hurry they also provide a to-go snack bag with a muffin, bottle of water, breakfast bar, apple and some mints. There was always hot coffee and hot water for tea or cocoa provided. It was nice to come back after dinner and enjoy a cup of coffee along with the complimentary fresh cookies.
Every staff member with whom we interacted was friendly and helpful. They answered all our questions and concerns and certainly enhanced our visit. We felt that we received very good value and would not hesitate to return to this hotel.

For just a few dollars more per night than other nearby hotels, we enjoyed a two-room suite. The room as well as the public areas were exceptionally clean and well kept. The staff we encountered were helpful and friendly. Breakfast offered numerous hot and cold choices and my wife, who has Celiac Disease, found items she could safely eat. Lots of nearby restaurant choices as well as a grocery store if you'd rather cook in the suite. Easy five-minute drive into downtown Asheville. I would highly recommend this property without hesitation!

I rarely ever give 5 out of 5, but this property deserved it! All the staff were completely awesome. Vanessa (I believe that was her name) and her assistant at the front desk, gave us a quick and welcoming check in. Our room on the 4th floor was very clean. I'm not real picky about details at most places I stay. Clean and friendly is all it takes to please me. Because I know that other people on trip advisor have different standards than myself, I went out of my way to look for the "dirt". I looked in corners, under counters, in drawers, in the refrig and microwave, in the tub and finally around the toilet. All spotless. Towels were white and fluffy and linens were in good shape. While this is not a resort, it did have some nice views and they were thoughtful with their landscaping. It was set back off the main road enough, that we felt safe and it was quiet. My son enjoyed the indoor pool. I thought breakfast was above average. The breakfast crew were very attentive and really took pride in doing a great job. One gentleman on the Sunday morning crew, really went above and beyond by checking on all the guests and keeping the tables clean. For a free breakfast, I thought the choices were well thought out. For example, they had a big pot of oatmeal and for toppings they had walnuts, cranberries and raisins, and sucanat (dehydrated cane juice). This was oatmeal worthy of Whole Foods. Of course, they had the other usual offerings of waffles, 2 types of eggs,meat, fresh fruits, fruit salad, and various breads. Oh, and they had real butter, not "buttery spread", to put on the baked goods. Like I said, lots of attention to detail. It was a little pricey in stay here, but because of the outstanding service we received, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: There are 5 floors. We stayed on the 4th floor and had some nice views considering the location.

Very nice clean comfy and quiet.We stayed here on our way back home. Hampton got the right idea with their clean comfy beds. Good building design putting the elevator at the end of the hall instead of the middle - we never heard the ding of the elevator. The shower had plenty of water pressure. The hotel was very neat and clean. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Driving on a very busy commercial road to get to the Hampton Inn you wonder if the hotel will be stock between a mall and a car wash. As you drive up that hill off the main road, it is a real peaceful area with three hotels and a restaurant, like a secluded oasis.

Plenty of parking, coffee and cookies near the reception are a nice touch, easy registration and pleasant staff, super clean room and comfortable bed. What we really appreciated was to read that the duvet covers are washed after each occupation of the room so you feel you can sit or strech on it.

Spotless bathroom well equipped as usual for a Hampton with everything you need. Brakfast was the regular Hampton fare in a pleasant and large area.

Everything is positive about this hotel especially the proximity to the Biltmore.

This is a welcoming place. The staff is quite professional and very willing to meet every need. The rooms are very clean with nice amenities. The rates are competitive. The breakfast buffet offers many choices to satisfy morning hunger. I will return.
