"Clean and Comfy Room But..."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 27, 2020 NEW
We were excited to stay here for our annual trip to Asheville because they had a restaurant that served breakfast vs. the "Free" breakfast that many hotels offer which can be a little lacking. We were very disappointed. Cold food from the kitchen which had to be sent back just to put some heat on it. I cannot eat cold eggs...sorry. We are generally very patient with hotels in this price range but since we paid extra for breakfast we felt like it should have been at least hot! And, I found hair in my waffles which was a turn off to say the least. Lovely, clean hotel, comfy bed, etc., but do not recommend the restaurant for breakfast. Maybe dinner is better?

"Very comfortable. Very near the Blue Ridge Parkway"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 07, 2020
Clean, comfortable. Public spaces are nicely decorated including a huge fireplace in the lobby. Rooms are above average for a Holiday Inn. The best part is that this hotel is about a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway and all the amazing hiking and scenery that offers. Warning - they do allow dogs. If that's not your thing - ask for a room away from that area. I was told all dogs are on the ground floor. So, ask for a higher floor

"Like staying in a national park lodge!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 31, 2019
I felt like my small dog and I were staying in a national park lodge! The decor - enhanced by the holiday decorations - has a western mountain lodge appearance. My dog especially enjoyed the wooded area with walking paths behind the parking area. The staff were delightful. And the restaurant food was four star quailty - the BBQ ribs were among the best I've ever eaten.

"Amazing and Perfect"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 27, 2019
We researched our Christmas break by reviews, hotels pictures and location. It was a choice between our go to Marriott or this Holiday Inn. Based on all the great reviews we chose this one and could not have been happier. I felt like I entered the Hallmark Movie of Asheville location. The beautiful decore and the quiet location made it so perfect. We loved the restaurant and the staff, especially Luisa and Mario who made everything even more perfect. People were sitting in the lobby area and it felt like my home away from home at Christmas. Even the little store they had was such good prices, which is unusual. So clean and perfect. My only negative was the dogs barking and fighting. I am not a dog person, so it would be nice if they had their own area as I wanted to sleep past 7.

"Great comfortable stay in Asheville, North Carolina"

The ambiance, decor and friendliness of the staff was wonderful. There’s parking for two buses and plenty in the main parking area. When you enter the lobby it’s surrounded by wood accents on the ceiling and the check-in desk is made up of rocks. There’s a fireplace in the lobby with an antler styled light fixture. The dining room serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast was about $8.50 and up per a person. For breakfast we could choose the buffet or a specific entree. There’s a bar inside the dining area but is only open in the evenings. We arrived around 10am and as our room was not ready, they offered to hold our bags while we enjoyed our day. Before we could unload our bags from the car, they found a room that was immediately available. We were glad that she was able to make this early Christmas gift! Please note that check-in begins at 4pm and check-out is at 11am. She checked us in and explained breakfast plus the best way to get to our room. The room was spacious, modern, comfortable. We enjoyed the entry bench with additional mirror and hooks to hang jackets. There’s also a table to do some writing, reading or texting and a comfortable chair in the corner to relax in. Also a Keurig was provided with coffee (reg/decaf), sleepy time tea and a couple of other selections. Breakfast was wonderful. We were warmly greeted and our food orders were taken in a timely manner. Our food was served hot, fresh and was a great way to start our day! We especially enjoyed the decor of the lobby and dining. Bring here at Christmas time made it extra special.
