Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Comfortable and great service
We didn't stay long. Got in late and left early the next day. The hotel was lovely, a lodge type feel. When we got there a roaring fire in the fireplace and a friendly late night staff me us. Room was nice, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was really good. Enjoyed our experience. Next time we'll stay longer!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1Roadrunner Best Holiday Inn I've stayed at
From the minute I arrived I knew this hotel was different from other Holiday Inn's I've stayed at. They acknowledged my Gold Priority Club membership in several ways from free bottled water to discounts on food and drinks in their dinning room/bar. The breakfast was WONDERFUL and the staff friendly. Other hotels could learn a lot from this facility. Clean Rooms, great decorations all over the hotel, friendly staff. I will stay here again and tell others of the wonderful stay.

I stay in hotels about 60 times a year...This property should be the standard for others to use as a goal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great deal! Clean comfortable and homey with free breakfast buffett!
Great experience. Very inexpensive. Personal touches that made it seem like a B and B, not a hotel. Great deals in the lounge and restaurant.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WPKTraveler Good hotel experience compromised by onsite restaurant
The hotel is very nice with a comfortable lodge feeling. The onsite restaurant, unfortunately, is under staffed and poorly managed - at least on the night we stayed there (January 2013). After waiting an hour and a half for our order, as the waiter for the second time apologised for the delay and assured us our order was just about to be delivered, I saw other tables who, though they'd been there for quite some time but arrived after us, had there order served, it became apparent the restaurant was unable to manage their business that evening. And it was not particularly busy with only about 2/3 of the tables occupied, and even this many due largely to the delays in filling orders. We finally gave up on dining that evening.
Nice hotel, but don't count on eating at the onsite restaurant.

This was an upgraded room but the mattress was old and worn out and the heating system unit was extremely loud making it diffiicult to sleep on a cold night.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bo69 Room comfortable,hallways dark and the food was not much.
Steak was cooked wrong,just appeared not much effort put in the restraurant and bar area. Upstairs hallways were dreary with no lighting.Will probably stay again because of location of work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sandylee Nice Lodge
The lodge was very nice except one thing that is a very important comfort for me. The mattress sheet on the king bed does not fit properly, it is too big and not the right size. During the night my sheet bunched up and it was not a very enjoyable sleep. I suggest that the Lodge invest in standard size king fitted sheets and get rid of the deep pocket sheets that they currently have.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Llama1 Very enjoyable stay
Hotel and restaurant staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious as was the dinner. The lobby was beautifully decorated for Christmas and we especially enjoyed relaxing by the fire after a day at the Biltmore. Our room was spotless and well appointed. Definitely recommend staying here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hick The most gracious and attentive staff in the world.
First of all let me say that I and many members of my family have been enjoying the motel for years and the joy of all our experiences there has been unbelievable. This visit, for instance, the restaurant was filled for breakfast and we began what we assumed would be a long wait. A member of the staff came to us right away, cleared a spot in the lobby,, and enabled us to have a beautuiful breakfast without a wait. I could give many such instances of hospitality and concern over our content ment over the years.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SP121 Horrible Stay, Rude Staff
We arrived at the hotel on the Friday after Thanksgiving, expecting a nice place based on the price and location. We were wrong... The room was very hot when we checked in and the air conditioner sounded like a semi-truck was revving its engine inside the room. We turned the AC off to try to sleep in the heat and then the mini-fridge started making excessive noise- there was not a plug within reach... so it being extermely late, we suffered through the night and left before 8 am. When I mentioned the issue to the front desk clerk, she said "Oh, I will write that down". No sympathy for the horrible night sleep and signs of exhaustion on my face, she was more interested in talking to her co-worker about how she wanted to win the lottery and quit her job.
I would not recommend this location and will not stay here again. It is a shame when some hotels in a chain do not meet the expectations set by similar hotels in different locations.

This is an excellent choice for a stay in the Ashville area considering price, location (10 mins. to Biltmore Estate), on-site food (really good breakfast), ect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Virginiaman A jewel amongst motor inns
It can be difficult to find comfortable, well maintained accommodations when traveling with the family pooch. Holiday Inn Biltmore East was an amazing exception from the ordinary! A gracious, welcoming staff; a spotless comfortable room; a warm lobby with a fireplace; and a full buffet breakfast round out an excellent value. The hotel made everyone - the dog included - as the most important guest that had ever walked through their doors, and I would not hesitate to stay at this fine motor inn on my next stay in Asheville.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HMC7 Excellent Service, Uncomfortable mattress
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this particular site. However, I found the mattresses to be extremely uncomfortable. This was my only true complaint here. We were told the mattresses were new, but they didn't feel like it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KrisB 1450 Tunnel Rd, Asheville, NC
We always stay here when in Asheville. Great, friendly employees, helpful and cheerful! The hotel is fine, comfortable, clean, pet friendly, and makes you feel right at home. Lovely views out the front, especially the upper floors. I'm a frequent traveler, older, love my pet, hate rigid rules and feeling like I'm being watched every minute in a hotel. This place is just a nice place without the stuffiness. I will continue to stay here, every time, every visit. Decent breakfast buffet, close to restaurants and scenic car rides. Biltmore Estate isn't far either, just across town, maybe 20 minutes away.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fltpkr Outstanding staff and service
I have stayed at this Holiday Inn before, but this time, my wife and I were there for about 10+ days. Because of uncertainties of our travel schedule, I ended up with about 3 different reservations for different dates. Once our plans were confirmed, i called the front desk, and they were able to consolidate all the reservations into one, so we would not have to change rooms, and check in & out. (one of the reservations was made using Priority Club points, but was not a problem either). The room (King Accessible) was fine - a little cramped because the bathroom is bigger than normal. Having a micro-fridge and microwave in the room helped a lot, as we could keep snacks and milk for coffee etc. in the room. The room rate included a full hot breakfast every morning. Scrambled eggs, biscuits, gravy, bacon, make your own waffles, juices, cereal and so on. The quality was fine, but it was exactly the same every day, so we didn't always take advantage. Front desk, restaurant, and housekeeping staff were all top-notch in attitude, friendliness and delivery of service. Other than breakfast, we only ate in the restaurant once, for dinner. The food was quite good, and I especially liked the fact that the bar carried several locally brewed beers on tap. Overall, highly recommended, although room rates on weekends can be a bit high during fall foliage season.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Very Pretty Hotel
Hotel was clean as were the rooms. The staff was very friendly except for the staff in the restaurant. The restaurant was understaffed both in the evening when we ate dinner and at breakfast the next morning. They just seemed to be going through the motions of serving us and were not friendly or helpful.

This Holiday Inn has the ambience of a high end resort. You enter into a beautifully decorated lobby with the feel of the mountains. The staff was so accomodating! Our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast buffet included was wonderful. In the evening, we enjoyed a glass of wine on the patio. I highly recommend this hotel!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roadjo Friendly, comfortable, and really UNIQUE!
This hotel is a nice little UNIQUE hotel in east Asheville. It's lobby and decor are cozy and welcoming, with a stone "frank Lloyd wright"-ish feeling in an early 1960s positive way. Check-in went smoothly and the room was clean and recently renovated, including the bathroom. The local character comes through in local photography and artwork, and the light fixtures in the hall are small antler sconces, which make the hotel feel more like a country lodge, but without being too stuffy. Breakfast, which is included, is very extensive and solid, with biscuits, sausage, heuvos rancheros, bagels, fruit, waffles, etc. Very satisfying. This is not a boutique hotel and doesn't have any "urban" feel to it, which is great because this hotel knows what it is - a very comfortable country style holiday inn. It is also very dog-friendly. Highly recommend. Would be an IDEAL stop for those traveling on the Blue Ridge Parkway - if your idea of fun is cruising the parkway, I think this place would be great.

Great front desk staff. Room was fine, bed good, and it was clean. Business computers available. Has a small bar with a limited selection. Dinner selection also limited and that is understandable. Breakfast was well done with seating difficult during peak periods. Go early or late. Considering rates in the Asheville area this hotel, just a few minutes drive from the Biltmore or downtown, is a very good value.
