Access to the facility from the roadway was poorly designed. Good luck trying to find this place in the dark.
Conference area was clean. Coffee at the conference was good.
The room was clean. Bathroom was tiny. Rugs are worn down to the cement. Popcorn ceilings - reeeeal classy. Cable is slow, not much of a selection (we didn't get HBO until the last night). WiFi was inconsistent at best. There is no
I've never had an issue with bed sheets but these were actually LOUD! You move in the bed, it sounds like you're walking on a sandy floor. I'm not kidding. I probably could scrape paint off the wall with these sheets.
Noise from the hall and the parking lot was unacceptable. Parked cars were six feet from the sliding glass doors. Not a great combo on a Saturday morning when you have to listen to Harley's warming up next to your bed at 7am. Who designed this place, a Marine Drill Sergeant? Park the cars and MOTORCYCLES in front of the building--away from the rooms.
The bar area was clean, good selections, fireplace and pool table were a nice touch. Staff was very friendly.
No free breakfast. Go to the Denny's around the corner, it's cheaper and (if you can believe it) better quality.

My stay at Crown Plaza was September 21 - 24 for our annual Pretreatment Consortium meeting. My room was clean and comfortable, the staff was very helpful and friendly. I loved the atmosphere. Thank you very much for a pleasant stay. I would recommend Crown Plaza for anyone's in stay in Asheville.

Second stay after a four year break. Good service; comfortable room. Only had one meal, in the bar, and it was good. Really appreciate complimentary coffee in the AM. Stayed on main floor the first time, so was surprised at only one small elevator. Can have long waits. Overall, very pleased, and would stay again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lmvander not worth it
Apart from the fact that the room was clean and they offered a $5 shuttle to downtown, this hotel is not worth the money. The cable selection is very poor, the wifi does not allow for VPN:ing out to work, and there is no breakfast included. In fact, they omit telling you that and charge you $12 bucks per person for a below average breakfast buffet. Even motels offer at least free donuts. Next time I am in Asheville, we are going with a run of the mill chain, because this "resort hotel" is just a plain bad deal all around.

We had another excellent stay at the Crown Plaza in Asheville. The pool was still open and we enjoyed our time there relaxing. The grounds are well cared for. The wifi worked well this trip, it had not in the past. The staff is very helpful. We will go back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by especies1ma Great staff but the quality of the food was subpar
Very capable and warm staff in the dining area, front desk, and housekeeping. Was surprised I was only given one shampoo and conditioner for the three days that I was there. Was surprised that tissues weren't in the room. Was surprised that tea wasn't checked when I was using it and not coffee. Felt room and grounds were very nice and clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jpreunion great family reunion
Thanks to Crowne Plaza Resort for taking good care of us. The Crowne Plaza Resort was an exceptionally nice place to meet for our group of 12. From my beginning inquiries, getting the room requests, registration, arrival, special requests, dining, and to the departure they were easy to work with and very accommodating. The lobby, dining rooms, pub, exercise room, tennis, pools, and golf faclities were great. While we were there I believe there were a couple weddings and some other business meetings but they did not interfere with our gathering. My room was executive king. The room was very clean and large and had the extra space we needed to gather in for our social hour. It was soooo very nice that you added a table and chairs to my room and SURPRISE lots of ice for our social gathering. That worked out perfectly for us. We ate breakfast at Crowne Plaza and it was great – cold and hot buffet had lots of choices. Everything was fresh and tasty. I know the children in our group enjoyed the pools. My husband played golf and enjoyed it.
We will certainly stay here in the future and spread the word about your lovely resort. THANKS!!!!

The staff is very nice and helpful. The hotel is clean and the grounds are lovely with a nice view of the city. The breakfast buffet is delicious and the omelets and waffles delicious. The outdoor pool is very nice and pool area well kept. The fitness center is convenient.
The wifi does not work well in the bedrooms.

After check in found dirty laundry from previous guest in the closet. Took the item to the front desk not much concern. I would not return to this property its not a great place to stay. The staff never went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff134 Resort with golf?
Signage to the golf pro-shop is a huge problem. The signs that are in place lead to nowhere. Plus, staff hasn't a clue, so walking around the parking lot while carrying a golf bag wasn't fun. The golf course isn't a resort course. I didn't mind it only being nine holes, but the condition was poor to fair and the routing left much to be desired.
Overall, the hotel was clean and comfortable.
Also, there needs to be better interaction between staff and the amenities offered to guests.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HappyAl1962 Stay here if you like cigarette smoke.
This is a clean hotel, very nice spa and staff. That is where it ends.
The rooms all have balconies,the other guests sit outside and smoke,everything smelled like cigarettes,do not open the door for the fresh mountain air,you will get stale Marlboro.
Carpet is threadbare rooms are worn.
People talking in halls sounds like they are in room with you! I got up in the middle of the night and checked that the door was shut! Noise level is unacceptable.
Not a very nice experience!

Bed was comfortable, nice pillows, clean, spacious room. Nice reception upon check-in. Shuttle into town was nice, for the short jaunt...no driving needed. Did not get a chance to play golf or tennis...next time. But, the zip-line canopy being right behind the hotel was the bomb...had a blast there! OK, maybe that part was not quite as relaxing for all, but memorable...LOL. Had a great stay!! See you again!

My wife and I stayed in your hotel for only one night. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful with our check in. The room was very comfortable. We had our pet with us and the outside access to walk him was very convenient. Also being so close to downtown was very nice. Will stay with you again on our next trip to the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Meandminime Great Location
My daughter and I planned a spur of the moment trip to shop downtown Asheville. I located the Crowne Plaza after searching and searching on the internet. You always wonder if the actual place will be as nice as it looks online. I was so excited when we arrived to find out that it was every bit as nice as the pictures portrayed it to be. Staff was friendly and rooms were beautiful! Although we didn't spend a lot of time in the room, the property itself offered so many things to do. I will definitely stay there again if I go to that area and would definitely recommend it to anyone heading that way!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by turtlenerd not bad
was there for a conference. Hotel staff were very friendly and responded to my requests for a quite room - away from elevators, vending machines, and ice machines. There was very little noise from the hallway. However, I could hear EVERYTHING in both guest rooms adjacent to mine. It was quite unnerving to listen to my next-door-neighbor use the bathroom at every hour.
Other than that, the hotel was nice - much more than expected for the money paid but I did get the conference room rate...

I was very disappointed. Although the rooms are clean and i love the creams they put on your bed at night the service at the front desk was horrible. if you like being at a cheesy wedding factory this is the place for you. They actually have a PA system that calls the next wedding party that can be heard every where in the hotel including you're room.. Forget about resting in your room before dinner. it sounds like a fire drill. Honestly the most obnoxious thing i have heard at $200 a night. Definitely won't stay here again.

Staff were top notch! Rooms were older but clean and remodeled! Conceirge was so nice and helpful as well as front desk staff. I can't say enough nice things about the employees here. Pools were nice, grounds well kept, bar area was nice also. Would highly recommend. The $5 round trip taxi to downtown was also nice!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AndreaGS Asheville Stay
I am a fan of Crowne Plaza properties however it did not fully meet my expectations. One of the problems that I had with the property was when I booked the room it stated that a King Deluxe room with a balcony would have a mountain view, this was false. Additionally all rooms had balconies which was misleading when making the reservation, I paid an additional per night amount for the King Deluxe unneccessarily. The room was very dark even with all of the lights on The bathroom was tiny making it impossible for two people to be in it at the same time. The hotel was also located in an industrial type area, which was unappealing.
The staff was very helpful and pleasant so that was a plus, and the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable.
I will continue to stay at Crowne Plaza properties but will not stay at this one if I visit Asheville again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 24kmach Average but not the price
If you plan to stay for more than a few days they have one washer and one dryer to use in a bug infested little shack. This is a average place to stay at a more than average price. The elevators are small and the rooms are so, so.

My Wife and I stayed at this hotel twice, the first time was a remarkable surprise because it was a late reservation made while traveling in our car, upon our arrival we were pleasantly surprised at how large the facility is and how nicely located. The service was very good, large rooms and clean and comfortable. We enjoyed it so much we made a return visit and found it still enjoyable. I just booked my third visit there today.

The staff at this hotel were very helpful and friendly. Bill at the front desk was very nice and helpful. The rooms were good for the money. They have the dog friendly rooms completely seperate from the non-dog friendly rooms. This was a perfect hotel for our stay. The elevator was small.

I want to commend the staff during our stay. I was on a "girlfriend getaway." All of the staff we came in contact with made us feel at home...never too busy to answer our questions or respond to our needs. I expecially want to mention three(3) of your staff members who truly made us feel welcome from the first contact to the last day of our stay. Linda (hotel mgr), Marilyn (concierge?), and Chelsea (bar tender). All of these employees went above and beyond our expectations...not just for us, but for everyone I saw them serve. They were knowledgeable, professional, personable and I could go on and on. They treated us like family and made our first experience at this resort a memorable one.
KUDOS to all of you!!! Keep up the great work!
