First of all, I prefer Holiday Inn because of my past experiences...always a great, quality, safe place to stay. I really liked the close proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the location was not in downtown Ashville (which I preferred). After a long drive down the parkway, it was easy to find and check in. The linens on my bed were comfortable and the extra feather pillows were a plus. I didn't adventure outside because the weather was cold and rainy but the pool area looked great from my window. I had the mountain view from the fourth floor which was very nice. The hoteI is situated on a hillside, but I would definitely request a higher floor in the future. The staff were very friendly and I loved the pumpkins, hay, and welcome decorations at the front of the hotel. Breakfast was excellent and the restaurant was clean and comfortable. Overall, the facility was very mountain-like and cozy (a home away from home). Loved my stay!

Unhappy our room smelled like a 60's gas station bathroom when you walked into the door. If I hadn't been so tired from the trip, I would have checked out and tried to find another hotel. I like animals but this is the 2nd time I've stayed at this hotel and had to deal with barking dogs I will try another hotel next time through. The hotel needs to dedicate a floor to those with animals. I did go to the front desk and the young lady said she would send maintenance, which never showed up. After our last two experiences I would not recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kuhns It's like home with comfort, cleanliness and especially great staff.
I've been staying there several times a year for 20+ years and always look forward to being back. And, having travelled all over the world, it is a favorite. The dedicated, professionally perfect caring staff make the comfortable accommodations and joyfully relaxing. Thank you!
