Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Asheville Downtown
Ranked #37 of 66 Hotels in Asheville
Reviewed December 31, 2012

The staff was polite and our suite was clean and spacious, but that's not enough to make me come back. This hotel is not downtown. It is in an unattractive area a few miles from downtown. Our view was of a smaller run-down motel next door. The furnishings look cheap and outdated, not just in our suite, but throughout the hotel, which made me feel that I overpaid.

Clean, newly renovated room. An easy 1.3 mile drive to the heart of downtown. We stayed 3 nights on the weekend when the hotel was totally booked and barely heard any noise at all. Slept very well. Only complaints were the VERY firm beds, which may be ok for some. And the clumpy pillows... We went to tjmaxx and bought our own. Also, there is an old abandoned motor lodge that was right outside of our window. The surrounding area is a tad run down, but there is an outback, Buffalo Wild Wings and a Cracker Barrel all within walking distance. And they have bath and body works minis in the rooms! Definitely a steal at the 45$ we scored the room for!

My wife and I wanted to spend an overnight in order to walk around downtown Asheville. We selected this hotel mainly because of the "downtown" in its name. The hotel is located a little over a mile from downtown Asheville. We found the hotel to be excellent in every way. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The hotel is very clean and well-maintained. The mattress in our room was outstanding with top shelf linen. Our room was as new and well furnished. We did not visit the restaurant or bar during our stay. I did however use the indoor swimming pool which is very small and use the hot tub. My only complaint about the hotel was the pool water temperature. It was very cold outside and the outdoor and indoor pools are not separated except by over the water vinyl strips. The pool heater did not keep up with the outside pool loss. We did walk from the hotel to downtown and back as the weather although very cool was nice and sunny. Asheville has many quaint shops and varied restaurants and worth the visit..

Thank You for writing a review about our hotel. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. There are two Holiday Inns on Tunnel Road and to differentiate both hotels, IHG (Franchise) has given us the name of Downtown. We hope you will consider us for your future stay in Asheville.

Drove up to Asheville from Charleston during Thanksgiving holiday. Was impressed by this Holiday Inn. Even though I arrived late, the front desk staff was friendly and welcoming. Really liked the exercise room. Did not eat there, but I talked to a couple who had breakfast and they loved it. Had a fine view of the city and slept great. Would definitely stay here again.

Good impression right away because check-in was easy and the people at the front desk were friendly. The room was big and it was very clean. Had everything I needed, and the hotel is close to all the main routes and downtown. I wish there was a free breakfast in the morning, and the pool didn't really look inviting, but otherwise it was great.

Room Tip: I had a room on the second floor overlooking the kind of run down hotel next door. It wasn't rea...
