When we arrived we asked if the room was close to the vending area and it was next to it. We are light sleepers and explained this to the Staff. The staff moved us so we would be away from the vending and the elevators and gave us a upgraded room at no extra cost. We will be back. They also have a great free breakfast bar.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AmericanHistoryBuff Affordable, quality place to stay.
This HIE was affordable, in a convenient location, clean, with friendly and helpful employees. It is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Biltmore House, dining and shopping. The bed was very comfortable and the room very clean. We have stay at this hotel often in prior visits and have been very pleased. Unlike prior visits, our room this time needed some maintenance adjustments. 1) The heating unit appeared new, but it would get too warm at normal settings. 2) The bathroom faucet also appeared relatively new, but was extremely difficult to turn water on and off. 3) The toilet seat unit appeared new also, but when lowering the seat portion, when it was about 3/4 of the way down, the lid would catch and would fall down on your hand or arm. We will stay at this HIE again in the future, despite the annoying issues with that particular room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by zwelch85 Good Hotel
I have stayed here numerous times, and enjoy my stays here. There are a few things that I would like to see fixed, the first thing is the attentiveness of the housekeepers while in the room. It is always the small things that make the biggest difference (i.e. making sure the amenities are stood up in the bathroom, the clock in the bedroom has been set when the power fails, etc) Another big thing that I have seen multiple times is the cardboard that is in the windows of the front of the hotel.. This is obviously the housekeeping staff room, and it looks trashy to see cardboard in the windows of a HIE hotel, this is something I would expect from another type hotel, not HIE.
Otherwise comfortable bed, fast WIFI and clean hotel!

Scott at the front desk was very helpful and very pleasant from the time we checked in with any and all of our needs and questions. He is a great asset to your organization. He gave us dinner ideas and how to get everywhere we wanted to go. The staff overall were all nice and accomodating. We would stay with this Hotel again.

Enjoyed our stay at Holiday Inn Express so very much. Excellent accommodations, comfortable bed, great shower, clean room. Have stayed in many other hotels, but your breakfast was by far the best. Your cinnamon rolls were amazing!!!! From now on, Holiday Inn Express will be our choice.

or at least it should be. The room and service was excellent. The only thing I don't personally care for is the pancake maker, but then I don't care for it at any of the locations. Pancakes too flat, bland adn you usually have to order twice to get enough pancakes fo a breakfast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rover360 Only one downfall
We stayed one night while we were visiting the Blueridge Parkway. The one thing I did not like was the walls are thin and the people above us were stomping around at night. We could also hear the people next door. I travel with ear plugs so it was not a big issue. Everything else was great and perfect. This hotel is the perfect location.

I stayed in this hotel with my husband to see the Biltmore House. The carpet need an update and unfortunately the mattress was very uncomfortable. My back was very sore the next morning. I thought the breakfast selection was really good, especially the pancake machine.

The staff was very nice and made our stay relaxing.
My only suggestion is beds need updating. Sleeping very uncomfortable!
Breakfast was OK and the staff made sure to refill items as they became low.

The accomodations were nice but the beds need updating. Pretty uncomfortable. I felt the price of the room was a little too high for what you got.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ayekayecee Great experience, close enough to Asheville attractions without the downtown traffic!
Our stay at Holiday Inn Express Asheville/Biltmore Square was perfect for our travel needs. The beds were comfortable enough, great water pressure in the shower, front desk staff was very courteous and informative, and the whirlpool was nice to relax in after a longgggg day of walking around Biltmore. The only con was that I wish it had an indoor pool, but the amenties were fine considering how much time we spent outside of the hotel. The breakfast included your basics, and hot foods such as eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, and pancakes. I am not a big breakfast person, so it was a great selection as far as I'm concerned. I was excited to see a big flat panel TV in our room, and VERY surprised to see that our room had a balcony! It was a bit too chilly to enjoy it, but it was unexpected, nonetheless. Considering the time of year and proximity to Asheville, the price was a better value than compared with other area hotels with similar amenities. The location of the hotel was very convenient. It was right off exit 33 on I-26, and was within a 15 minute drive to everything Asheville had to offer, yet it was far enough away to not have to deal with the bad downtown traffic.
I was also worried about restaurants and shopping close to the hotel since it is a bit on the Asheville outskirts, but I was not disappointed... pre-trip research (and the gentleman who checked us in) highly recommended the Stone Ridge Tavern restaurant, and oh wow, the food was delicious!!! It was a couple of minutes away from our hotel on Brevard Road. Also, not to be missed in the Kmart shopping center across the road from that restaurant is a cozy Mexican placed called Papas and Beer that, from my research, got excellent reviews and also, did not disappoint.
I would highly recommend this hotel to travelers that want to visit Asheville but do not want to fight with the traffic all the time. It was a great respite after touring and walking all over creation during our trip.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Girlsgetaway3 Good location for biltmore
I just stayed in this hotel with my sister and cousin for a girls trip to see the Biltmore. The bed was so hard that I didn't sleep well at all. The carpet and drapes really need an update. The breakfast was not worth going to. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I felt like it was a little over priced.

We stayed here to visit the Biltmore Estate, and while it was a little further away than we thought (about a 12 minute drive via interstate) it was still convenient to that and a very good restaurant (Stone Ridge Tavern.) The lobby and breakfast areas were designed very nicely as was the room. Everything was was clean and in good repair and all fixtures functioned as they should. It was a short, single night stay, but it was enjoyable and we have absolutely no complaints.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GNJ1960 Very Convenient
The hotel was convenient to all the area attractions. We had stayed at the downtown one last year and actually preferred this one. The room was clean and comfortable. There was a slight mix up with the reservations I made on-line, but the staff took care of it upon check in. The hotel was almost full but the breakfast area was still able to accommodate everyone with minimal wait. The food was fairly typical but was a good start.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TreeNurse Breakfast was late, mattress uncomfortable
We stayed mid-trip and intended to get up, eat at 6 AM, and be on the road. At 6 AM the breakfast was not completely ready and it was 6:20 before the hot food was out. If we needed to pay for breakfast, I could have economized on the room. As it was, we were late for our appointment that afternoon because we had to wait around on breakfast.
The mattress was not very soft and I could feel the innersprings on my hip all night. Didn't sleep very well. Overall, disappointed. Not horrible, but not what I have come to expect and the rates were too high for this level of service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roberta86 Comfortable facility
We were traveling from Nashville, TN and didn't get in until late (we had reserved online). The Asheville-Biltmore Square HIE was sold out but our room was ready and comfortable. We had been in two other HIEs over the previous two nights and I believe this one had the most comfortable bed and pillows. The staff was friendly and the facility was clean. The breakfast area was clean and the food was plentiful. And that's saying a lot since the hotel was sold out and we came down for breakfast relatively late (around 9am).
