Previous reviews of this hotel were enough to make me fear what I had gotten into after purchasing the room on Priceline's "name your own price" service. But, I gave them a chance and they did not disappoint. The staff was exceptionally friendly, first of all, and obviously took pride in their work. Having been completely renovated in 2008, I suspect any personnel that were not completely customer service oriented were let go. As for the facility, EVERYTHING was new--and tasteful. Is is a 5-star resort? No. But you don't worry about cleanliness or the functionality of anything. Besides, in-room fridge and coffee maker are enough for people that don't require turn down service. As for the beds, they were the best I'd ever slept on in a hotel. Not to mention the "firm" and "soft" pillows were a nice touch.
All in all, I'd say that the rebirth of this hotel has made it a great value and opportunity for visitors to Asheville--especially if you're there to see the Biltmore Estate. Downtown is only a couple miles up the road and you have immediate access to I-40. This is certainly the place I will stay next time I visit Asheville.
