“Another Great Country Inn & Suites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We stayed at the country inn & suites Asheville on Tunnel Rd for the Sunday/Monday of new Years eve 2012-2013 to visit Biltmore Estates and what a pleasure it was! These hotels must be keeping track of their various sites because each one is as great as the rest. We reserved a room but put in a request for a king and were upgraded to a king suite with a pull-out couch. Plenty of room, great price, extremely clean (including nice towel animal and tissue/toilet paper designs). breakfast was wonderful, staff were very friendly and helped with downtown advice and the indoor hottub & pool were amazing in the middle of winter in the mountains. Only 2 miles from downtown asheville and 5 easy miles to Biltmore Estates.Oh and the beds and the climate control were better than home! We will stay here again!

We recently visited the biltmore estate and stayed at this hotel. Great breakfast, friendly staff. The room we got was a king suite with pull out couch for the kids. Plenty of room with a mini fridge and microwave. Clean and nice room. I would recommend to stay here. Make your own waffle for breakfast, they are great at the complimentary breakfast!

We needed a hotel for a midway stop to our final destination. This hotel fit the bill. The large rooms with two queen size beds were great for our family of 4. The continental breakfast was good and the customer service was top notch. The room was clean and the property was maintained.

We stayed at this hotel for one night while in Asheville for Christmas at Biltmore. The staff was super friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean, the kids had fun in the indoor pool and hot tub, the complimentary hot breakfast bar was delicious (chicken, biscuits & gravy, omelets, etc.), and we all enjoyed the complimentary warm cookies in the lobby. The location was very convenient to shopping and restaurants. If we return to Asheville, we would definitely stay here again.

Great hotel. We stayed from the 23rd till 26th. Good breakfast options, quite, clean rooms. Staff are super helpful and courteous. An easy location to all of the main attractions in ASHEVILLE.

Would definite recommend. Great value.

We made a 1 night trip to Asheville and stayed here. It's right off I-26 and very convenient to Biltmore and Downtown. The breakfast is free and very nice. The hotel is a great value and the staff was very helpful. There is an Ingles (grocery store) within walking distance (100 yds) in case you want some snacks or forgot toiletry items.

My only complaint is no grits in the breakfast buffet, but they did have oatmeal. Isn't Asheville in the South?

Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.

We visited Asheville, NC for the first time this past weekend to go to The Biltmore for Christmas. This hotel was perfect. Reasonably priced for families, close to everything including The Biltmore (5 minute drive), downtown and the interstate. We stayed for 2 nights and loved it. Staff was helpful and friendly.

The game changer is the breakfast. One of the best I've had. Rivals Hampton Inn's breakfast that I love. Had omelets, waffles, cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, bacon and biscuits with gravy plus 4 coffee options.

Hot tea and coffee available when you get there.

Room Tip: Stay on the 5th Floor. Keeps you away from any possible noise.
