We stayed at this hotel while enjoying hiking, whitewater rafting and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We drove to all of our planned activities. It is actually to far from downtown to walk so don't expect to be in the "thick of things" ,if that is what you are looking for. Upon arrival, I was very concerned about the rundown roach motel that sits very close on the side. It looked like permanent housing for some less than desirable people. Our room faced the mountains and I-240 so I did not have to look at this eyesore. I would have requested a room change if we faced the adjacent motel property. The room itself was very nice. It was clean and spacious with a large whirlpool tub. Their were plenty of towels and a good cable TV selection. The wireless internet was easily accesible. The pool was very small and did not seem to be heated. We only used it briefly on the day of arrival. The hotel has an Outback, Cracker Barrell, and Dairy Queen in the parking lot. A Japanese steakhouse was across the street. The hotel was close to I-240 so it was very easy to hop on and off of the interstate to get to area activities. I would recommend this hotel if you plan on just using it as a home base to travel around from. I would definelty request not to be facing the scary looking adjacent motel.
