“Basic, but good value”
Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

No frills hotel, but room was clean and comfortable. Great downtown location; you can walk to just about anywhere of interest. Staff was friendly and helpful in providing directions. Great value, especially when they give many options for discount room rates: AARP, AAA, military/govt. ID, etc.

Stayed August 2012, traveled on business

This is what it is, a place to sleep and shower between activities. The room we had was clean, if outdated. What you will receive here is friendly service, free breakfast, and a free place to park your car while you are walking around downtown. Granted, the free parking is VERY tight (no Suburbans), but if you want to pay $3, you can park in a nearby lot. I suggest that you drive a small car and check in early. This is not a froo-froo-fancy-shampoo kind of hotel. You will not be wearing a fluffy robe and drinking espresso. What you will be doing is staying downtown for under a hundred bucks a night. :)

Room Tip: Ask for mountain view - the street side is very loud

We've stayed several times at this very affordable hotel and will do it again and again. It is very clean, has a nice outdoor pool, and it offers an unusally good continental breakfast (including eggs, sausage, waffles, and bagels). Staff have always been friendly and attentive, and the manager Joline has always been very responsive to my occasional requests. Parking is free, and Location is a Real Big Plus if you like to indulge in this city's many nearby taverns. You can stay out as late as you want, and you never have to worry about a DUI.

Room Tip: If you do not mind the sound of water going into the pool, the mountain side rooms are very nice.

No frills here but it is cheap and clean. The AC worked, the phone didn't. No bed bugs, or gross stains on the carpet even though they are pet friendly. The location is perfect. The one downside is the parking lot. The spaces are cramped and there are not enough of them. The staff was nice and our room was a steal, under $200 for a weekend stay! I would definitely go back!

Room Tip: We had a room on the end that faces the street. It was nice and the noise level was fine even though...

This hotel is in the ideal location if you want to leave your car and walk the downtown area. It is convenient to all restaurants, shops, etc. It is a few minutes drive from the Visitors' Center and 10 minutes from the Biltmore and Biltmore Village. Breakfast included a variety of things such as make -your-own-waffles, sausage, biscuits, eggs, cereal. pastries, breads, yogurt, cereal, fresh fruit and of course beverages. Check-in was quick and easy. Yes, the rooms and hotel as a whole are dated but clean and we only paid, with AAA discount $71.00 per night.floors. The pool looked very nice but we didn't use it. Reading previous reviews this hotel was exactly what I expected.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors facing the mountains are very quiet.

This is certainly not the most modern, luxurious hotel in Asheville. But it is very affordable, clean and close to everything downtown. The location can't be beat - it's right across the street from Jack of the Wood and steps from the Thirsty Monk. It's an easy walk to any of the shops, restaurants and breweries downtown.
The room was a decent size, we easily fit four people. There was a fridge and microwave, and a nice big vanity area right outside the bathroom. The tile in the bathroom was definitely a little nasty. And the blankets on the beds were scratchy. But it was overall clean and quiet.
The pool area is very nice - private and clean.
The free continental breakfast was expansive - waffles, bagels, fruit, cereal, eggs etc. The lobby and room where the breakfast was served are definitely in need of renovations.
It's a great location and a great price. I would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is located very close to most of the activities to see and do downtown, but you get what you pay for. You can park your car and walk to just about anywhere. The rooms are dated, and a little threadbare, but they are sufficient if you just need a place to park your head for a few hours. The staff are helpful, but not a place to take the kids.
