Because of the Gov. shutdown we had to adjust our plans from staying near Shenandoah to hiking and seeing the fall colors in Asheville. It worked out pretty well. There are some nice waterfall hikes
in the Dupont State Forest and the fall colors were better in the Asheville section of the Blueridge Parkway. The staff is very friendly and helpful about information around the immediate area. We needed a non-smoking, no pet room so we stayed on the 2nd floor. The room was clean, a little musty so we had to open the window. The shower was like an enclosed fiberglass shell which was interesting. I liked it. The room had a microwave and a small refrigerator. The beds were comfortable. The mattress box spring was a little stained on the side but not dirty. The breakfast was fine to start the day. The hot food: circular scrambled egg shapes (look prefab but tasted fine), either bacon or sausage, biscuits and gravy and a waffle maker. Other choices: cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, toast, bagels, apples, bananas and misc danish, orange juice, apple juice, milk, coffee, tea, instant oatmeal. There's a few fast food places nearby and a couple of
restaurants. We opted to drive near to UNC and try Papas and beer (just okay). Ice makers are on first and third floor right across from the elevator. For the price and the amenities we were pleased with our stay.
