We have a son that plays ball at Montreat and needed a place to stay. We were pleasantly surprised that this place actually allows individuals to stay here when rooms are available. If you are a history buff, you will love the place. You can walk the halls and see pictures from its beginning in the 20's to more present... More

This is our third trip. First was camping, and now two stays at the Inn. This is a Presbyterian enclave that welcomes everyone. You can book and stay in the Assembly Inn just like you would a hotel. The Classic Inn and serene natural setting make this an ideal place to stay. There is no TV, no mini-fridge, no microwave,... More

Assembly Inn is historic and affordable, providing reasonable accommodations in one of the truly beautiful and rustic communities left in the country. The updates to the rooms are fairly minimal, however, and the rooms remain pretty dated and lack typical accoutrements of hotels. Bed is pretty uncomfortable, A/C is loud, there are no TVs in the rooms and no toiletries/hairdryer... More

I attended a conference held at the Assembly Inn and booked to stay at the campground while at the conference. The Inn is lovely but the campground ranks about the worst I've ever stayed in. The road into the campground needs attention to potholes and the campground itself is in great need of attention. The campsites are described as "rustic"... More

My daughter and I attended a retreat in Montreat and were certainly surprised to see the beauty of this place. It is not always available to individuals; mostly is used by groups. It is worth contacting, and the price is reasonable. Parking is difficult. but the building is a beauty.

We spent a week there with a Road Scholar group. The accommodations were exceptionally nice and the food was delicious and healthy. We did not expect such a great place and will go back in a heartbeat

I was down in the spring of 2015 to work on a book that I was finishing off. The staff was great and the room was perfect. It was also an excellent price. Not much beyond that other than to say I'll readily come back and stay.

Our church has held retreats here at Assembly Inn for many years. We loved the room renovations and the lovely new furnishings throughout the Inn. The rooms are not large, but clean, quiet and attractive. The new staff members seemed very cheerful and helpful. The meals are buffet style- salad fixings were very fresh and attractive. Basic food which pleases... More
