My 1st complaint is simply that this hotel is not really downtown. It is not within walking distance! There is a shuttle to the center but it only runs 4 to 11 p.m. There are a lot of great activities in Asheville during the day. My 2nd complaint is that this hotel does not recognize elite members beyond thanking you... More

We stayed at this Holiday Inn when we were traveling to Asheville. We thought we were sacrificing a the location for the price. We were wrong. Downtown is a mile away. A simple drive through a tunnel and you are at the Vance Monument. Here is what makes this hotel so awesome. From 4pm to 10:30pm, they offer a free... More

I traveled down with a group to participate in an educational conference held off-site. The staff were very friendly and helpful upon our arrival.

Great 1 night stay at the Holiday Inn Asheville. Welcoming staff. Clean rooms, very spacious. Used the complimentary shuttle into downtown. Worked out perfectly well. The driver provided some useful tips for touring around. It's not a long walk either, the tunnel is definitely distinct. There are some fast food options nearby, perfect for quick eats. Booked through Express Deals... More

Don't get discouraged by the terrible easement from the road...just pull in to the cracker barrel and you can get to the entrance. The rooms are very nice and clean. I stayed in a suite so it was extra nice!

This was a below average stay for us. - Brought our 9 month year old and stayed for 3 nights. The room reeked of smoke when we checked in during the evening. Of course they had no other available rooms then and we had no choice but to stay. This seems absolutely unacceptable, especially at over $200 for that Saturday... More
