The room was big and clean.
The staff was very friendly.
The bed was comfortable only for us the pillows where not so great but that is personal.
The breakfast was great, only the coffee was like strong tea.
The fitnesroom was fine.

I stayed here with a group for one night and even with AAA rate the room was still $180.00 per night. It's a neat older hotel that has been kept up very nice and if the rates were around $100.00 I would give it an excellent instead of average. They do give you a very good hot breakfast bar that is much better than a continental breakfast at other hotels but it's not worth $70.00. The reception desk people are very nice and professional, the room was clean and looked like it had been recently remodeled. The hallways and door to your room along with stairs and elevator showed the age of the hotel. When I pay $180 a night it's usually for an Embassy Suites, this Holiday Inn should be much less in their rate.

Room Tip: Stay away from the elevators or rooms near the exit doors. When people use the doors they slam very...

I really liked this hotel. The hotel was bright, open and airy. The room was comfortable and clean. We booked on Priceline Express, good deal!. Nice staff and a very convenient location.
To be honest, I wasnt expecting much because of the other reviews I read, but I was very comfortable and pleased by this choice.

Unfortunately we only stayed here one night as a stop over on the Blue Ridge Parkway, but it was easily the nicest hotel of our entire stay. The staff were friendly and helpful, and our room was just lovely and luxurious. The best breakfast, spread over two areas, so no crowding.
Wish we could have stayed longer. Can't fault it.

I stayed here over the Memorial Day holiday. If you make your reservation on Expedia, you will be treated as a second-class citizen. The king-size bed that I had reserved on Expedia was not available when we got to the hotel at 7:00 PM and we had to sleep in two double beds. My girlfriend was not a happy camper.... There is only one elevator which results in long waits when the hotel is crowded. The restaurant also gets very crowded at breakfast-time and some people had to share tables with other people visiting the hotel. The rooms are adequate but nothing special. The AC is a wall-unit which is quite loud. People are allowed to bring their pets so you may end up hearing the dog barking in the next room as I did. The exercise room is also very small (one bike, one treadmill, one cross-trainer). Fortunately not too many people seem to use it.

Room Tip: Get there as close to check-in time as you can or travel during the week.

After driving the Blue Ridge Parkway all day we were tired and ready to stop. A reservations person at the local Holiday Inn Express messed up our reservation, saying we were booked at the Holiday Inn Biltmore East. When we arrived we were not booked there. I called the reservations person from the other hotel to see where our room was and they would not help me. They suggested I call around. Brian, from Holiday Inn Bilmore East was very kind and alerted Mark to our situation. Mark took over immediately and found our missing reservation, had it transferred to Bilmore East, gave us tokens for the restaurant, adjusted our rate..... In my opinion, Mark is a 5 star employee. He defines customer service! What a GREAT first impression! Our room was first rate! Luggage carts easily available to get things to the room. A non-smoking hotel which is awesome! The decor was warm and welcoming. Nice outdoor eating area for restaurant. Beautiful pool. Free breakfast! If you are in the area you should definitely stay here! Thanks again, Mark, you are awesome!!!

Room Tip: Nice view from 428.
