“hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

4th floor w a veiw(minus the roof top below) 404.
Clean and cozy. Nice size mini fridge for our powerade and water. Plentiful breakfast. A group of 25, soccer tournament weekend. Resturante on site was YUM! Great and efficient service. These kind folks could not be more accomodating to the many requests that were made. Mark, Jeremy and all those at the front desk during our stay, A BIG THANK YOU!! FOR A SUCCESSFUL WEEKEND!!!
We WILL certainly be back next time!!!
The only reason not a 5 is because the 4th floor is suppose to be pet free and was not during our stay. So, would not be good if you have even slight pet alergies. Otherwise HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Room Tip: 4th floor, request a veiw facing the front right or left..

We arrived very late after a long drive and were welcomed with a friendly staff to start our family vacation in the smokies. Our room was very clean and the hotel had a rustic country theme that continued throughout the hotel (not just in the lobby as in many hotel locations). Our breakfast was included in our stay and was better than the typical buffet you would expect.The dining area included a bar with nice outdoor seating.
The pool was well maintained with a nice view of the mountains. Although we only stayed here for one night as we were on our way to a different location; I would definitely return again for an extended stay next time we are in the area.

Friendly reception desk, good spacious bedroom with views of both Tunnel Road and the mountains, elevator, on-site restaurant, guest laundry. What more could you want?
We were given discount vouchers for the restaurant, and the food was great. Complimentary breakfast was also a big hit.

We made reservations for 3 nights this past week but ended up staying a fourth. Convenient drive to downtown, chimney rock, Biltmore Estate, and other spots. The breakfast had more variety than the usual HI buffets, plus a bar and restaurant on site with a cute outdoor patio. The outdoor pool had plenty of seating, umbrellas and a nice view. Rooms were comfortable with microwave and small fridge (ask because rooms might not all have these). Staff is very friendly and helpful. I was a bit concerned because they are a pet friendly hotel and our family has allergies but we had NO issues on 4th floor, which is pet free.

I was so pleasantly surprised by this hotel! We were looking for a quick getaway up to the mountains where we could stay with our black lab and do some local hiking. We had no firm plans because it was so last minute. We found Montreat about 15 minutes away for the first day and then took a short drive to downtown Asheville for dinner. We were going to drive up to Hot Springs the following day but the manager informed us that the road was damaged and we might want to choose a different spot. He directed us to Dupont Forest and we were not disappointed!

The hotel grounds were beautiful with flowers and landscaping and we enjoyed the dog walking trail behind the parking lot. The pet friendly rooms are on the first floor and I was nervous that it might smell but it was clean and smelled fresh. The beds are very comfortable and linens were clean and soft. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the lobby was very cozy. Our room had a Keurig coffee maker and a nice sized flat screen tv. The breakfast was the usual fare and the staff inside the restaurant very friendly, as well. All in all, this was a place where you feel at home and doesn't have a chain feel to it. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel last weekend while attending a conference nearby. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff was friendly and helpful. My husband especially enjoyed the large, heated outdoor pool. The location is just slightly out of the center of town - a little quieter and yet very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. We plan to stay there again whenever we are in the Asheville area.

I have never been made to feel so welcome by a motel staff. The facilities are CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN and the grounds were top notch also. The new "dogwood" trail on the property was a nice little break from the normal patch of grass around a parking lot. The staff was very knowledgeable about the area and recommended many areas to tour. Our pet was welcome anywhere on the property, to include on the patio of the restaurant. She loved walking the long hallways and everyone talked to her like she was a paying guest. They have treats in the lobby but she preferred helping the staff clean up the popcorn around the machine at the desk. I will certainly stay here again when in this area. Room was very nice and the remolded granite in the bathroom was a nice touch.
