We had a very nice stay at the Holiday Inn! The staff was incredibly nice, our corner suite was very pleasant, and room service was great! In fact this place had more amenities than the more upscale places we have stayed in Asheville! My only problem is the location! It's advertised as a downtown hotel which it is not. You...

A nice enough place to spend a night. Difficult to reach from the road as the main entrance is shared. We could see it but it took a little time to reach it in the dark. Probably due for renovation. Not far from Biltmore Estate. Close to a lot of chain restaurants.

The hotel is clean and comfortable, the room good size with firge and microwave and the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fine and reasonably priced. Got great value with a state govt rate. This hotel is close to downtown but it is not downtown. It is on a busy street with strip malls and chain restaurants. If you...

This hotel is behind a very dodgy looking motel, and very badly signed on how to enter the property. Once on the site its a pretty average holiday inn, - though the bar does a nice selection of local beers. Watch out if you book it via the "book early & save with breakfast" option via the IHG website. The...

First of all...this hotel is NOT downtown! The hotel IS near many restaurants but I wouldn't walk here at night! The hotel itself is average, but what is below average is the staff. We had several little issues that if they were just handled with a smile would have been resolved. The staff is snarly and the management indifferent!! For...

Let me first start my extending our sincere apologizes for not exceeding your expectations. We clearly broke down with our internal communication. We should have at that time reported the discrepancy to the front desk and should have followed up with you. I can assure there was no intentional wrong doing, just a lack of communication on our part. Thank...

I made reservations for two rooms around a month in advance for this downtown Holiday Inn and honestly was not quite expecting the quality that we got. We were in town for a mini-family reunion. The hotel is very clean, with quiet rooms, comfortable beds, and friendly service at the front desk. The hotel is not frilly, or formal, but...

We were in town to visit family. Showed up at the Holiday Inn without a reservation. Due to a change in plans we did not have a hotel on a very busy week end in Asheville. Kenneth at the Front Desk could not do enough for us. They could accommodate us for one of the two nights we needed a...

Nothing flashy here, but the hotel was great for our over-night in asheville. really really close to downtown, the biltmore, and the blueridge hiking areas. a great, clean, budget place to stay. beware, the blackout curtains are hidden behind the flimsy, decorative sheers.
