We spent four nights in Asheville before and after a trip to Great Smokey National Park, and stayed in two of the TripAdvisor top-rated hotels, Brookstone Lodge and Country Inn and Suites in West Asheville. Both were fine places to stay, with similar room rates. Country Inn is visibly classier with more amenities, but Brookstone’s location is much better for visiting the Biltmore Estate, and closer to the restaurants and shops in Biltmore Village and downtown Asheville.
Brookstone Lodge had excellent beds, including a perfect mid-weight comforter (not too heavy like some places!) that allowed very comfortable sleeping. Furnishings include a comfy chair and good lighting. Good bathroom, though the exhaust system did not seem able to clear the steam after our showers. Breakfast was certainly adequate, including eggs and waffles and some limited fresh fruit. Staff were friendly and helpful. We had booked for two nights but wanted to add a third. They were fully booked, but paid attention to our request and called us during the day to say they’d had a cancellation and had booked us for the third night. Sound proofing seemed minimal; we were briefly aware of a baby crying down the hall, which fortunately ended well before our bedtime, and seemingly heavy-footed stomping in the room above us - a room on the top floor might be a bit quieter.
