“clean and comfortable, good value”
Reviewed December 1, 2007

This was my second stay at this Express. It is not the typical Holiday Inn Express. This is an older property, so it does not have all of the extras that most have, like an exercise room or spa (how often do you really use them). The rooms all have exterior doors, so you most likely will have several flights of steps to climb. It also can make for a cold walk down to breakfast in the morning.

My room was clean and comfortable. There is road noise, but just turn on the fan in the ac/heat unit to block that out. I never heard any noise from the other rooms, and it was nearly full every night I was here. The toilet/tub cubicle is small, and the exhaust fan does not work well, but I have been in many hotels that have that problem. Otherwise the room was good size. The breakfast was the usual items, well cared for and kept full. The breakfast area was also clean.

Overall this is a good value.

Staying at this Holiday Inn was tiring. After a long day of sight-seeing, we were ready to crash. The parking situation at this hotel is extremely inconvenient. Because of the shape of the property, there are not enough parking spots close to the room entrances. We had to lug all our belongings more than .1 mile to our room. We couldn't drop off our luggage in front of the room, then find parking because there were too many people circling, trying to find a parking spot, and there wasn't enough room for them to go around us. Elderly or disabled guests, or parents trying to keep track of children, would find this situation challenging.

There were no extra outlets in the room and the internet cord did not reach the desk area. The air-conditioner was difficult to control. Otherwise, the room was clean, the breakfast fare was the usual nice selections, the beds were comfortable.

No little fridges available. Tiny parking lot. Tiny bathroom. No closet. Had to park in next door restaurant's lot. Damp, damp, damp. Did I mention it was damp? The sheets were damp; the towels were damp; the carpet was damp and after one night, our clothes were damp too. The maid had left the shower head pointed out of the shower, so when I stupidly neglected to check it's position before I turned it on, it sprayed me and the toilet and floor with more DAMPNESS. Very inferior. In my opinion, should not be allowed to call itself Holiday Inn Express as all the others I have stayed in (except Seattle) have been superior. Good location, but my stay left me grumpy.

The hotel is in the perfect location for all Asheville sites - Grove Arcade, Biltmore, Tourists Baseball, and even a good jumping off point for Chiminey Rock, , Mt Mitchell, Cherokee, and the National Park. As with all Holiday Inn Express hotels, convenient complimentary breakfast is a good start to your day.
The hotel has no elevator, so be aware you may be required to carry luggage up 3 flights. Pool is small, but clean. $89 price fits any budget.

The service was no existant, waited in line for 20 min to check-in and I am a Gold Priorty Club Member. The Parking lot was very small and the rooms were small also. The road side rooms are very noisy with traffic.

Stayed here for two nights in March. This is a basic but clean and well run motel, very close to the Biltmore Estate and Village.
