This is the second time I stayed here and looking forward to coming back in the fall. Close to the beautiful forest, Old Town Brevard and within an hour from downtown Asheville.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mo120 Good Service, Friendly Staff, Poor Internet Service
Room was clean, nice view of the mountains. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was good - in particular the warm cinnamon buns! Internet was down more than available - not sure if it was provider or location. Don't expect to have easy access to internet during stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Adventurelife Good bed and service, but breakfast marginal.
Staff, bed, cleanliness, all good.
Washer and dryer helpful.
Breakfast...low on supplies such as utensils, pancake mix, bacon, bananas...
Evening cookies were a nice touch!
Front sign hard to see when driving in from south.
Some front desk clerks not cheery. Others were very sweet.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Schoenf14 Awesome breakfast choices and quality
The hospitality of all of the staff there was without comparison; they were very attentive and friendly. The breakfast was a huge hit with my kids who are sometimes quite picky but they were able to find and enjoy everything they wanted. The beds were also firm and they offered a variety of pillow options. The internet speed was beyond my expectations! Overall, it was a nice getaway and a good deal for the price!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Amy d Exercise room in major need of help
Do not stay here if exercise is important to you. Only two of the five machines in the room were working at all. The best I could find was a stationary bike with a manual cycle working, but no other options functioning. There was also an elliptical that worked. The other three machines were unusable. Disappointing to me and the six or more other people trying to use the equipment while I was there. This was the largest of many errors I encountered. The water dispenser was unusable. The room had an incorrect list of channels available. When I called the front desk in frustration the clerk said " oh that list was changed ages ago". Not in my room. The maid sighed when I said yes I would like her to check my room for straightening after my first night there. The breakfast service was out of plates, forks and other things when I was trying to get breakfast. It generally felt like the management team was not paying attention. I have stayed here many times before. Not sure I will again.

Nice hotel located in a beautiful area of WNC. Check-in was fast and efficient. The front desk staff were very helpful with questions on the local area. Unfortunately, it's a drive into the quaint downtown area, but no big deal.

There was a small kerfuffle at check-in, but it was fixed quickly. The room was quite comfortable for two adults and two children, who enjoyed the pool immensely. The exercise room is small but had good equipment. I would have appreciated more variety at the complementary breakfast, but the food was tasty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by teach54 Lovely room and grounds
Very impressed with room. It was large and comfortable. Location was very convenient for our needs. View from pool area was scenic and peaceful. Staff at front desk were very helpful providing answers to questions on local places and requests. The hotel was close to where we wanted to go in Brevard, but seemed to be off in a nice and secluded mountain area. Being from Florida, we really enjoyed the feel of being in the mountains while being in town.

Hotel was located well. Staff was friendly, and room was clean, and quiet. Breakfast cold options looked ok, but I had the bacon and eggs. Eggs were tasteless, and bacon overcooked. Bottom line: GREAT NIGHT'S STAY….FOOD will fill you up, but not that tasty.

Overall quality of this hotel was very good, stall was very helpful in giving directions to my destination as well as pointing out places of interest along the way and best and fast route to Ashville Airport. The next time we will be in the area which will be September of 2014 we will return to this location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 80nola Fantastic handicap-accessible room
Overall, this was an excellent experience. I would not choose to stay anywhere else in the area. As a person with limited mobility and other physical problems, I appreciated the design of the bathroom--with two minor suggestions. I could not adjust the position of the seat provided for the bathtub. Also, using the handle on the hand-held shower head is very awkward.
The room itself was fine, except that the microwave didn't seem to work. It was not a major problem for me, so I didn't report it.
My biggest complaint was the difficulty in accessing the Wi-Fi network. The directions that were provided did not work properly. I had to work around them to finally get it to work. As a result, I did not turn my computer off, because I didn't want to go through the hassle of setting it up again. I prefer to turn it off when I am not using it to avoid hacking and reduce energy consumption.
When I travel, one thing I dream of is being able to have a simple breakfast with items from those supplied in the lobby delivered to my room for a fee. Again, it is difficult for me to move around and takes me extra time in the morning. Any hotel chain that offers this service--maybe only to those who are in handicap-accessible rooms--would gain a customer for life!!!
The staff was very helpful. I did find the increase in room rate over the holiday to be a bit steep.
I would not hesitate to recommend this location to anyone.

Don't expect breakfast as advertised. And if you ask, you will be told to wait until the next day for food.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by David466775 Fell Short on one of biggest days of year
Big camp turnover day. That was the day one of the housekeepers decided not to come in. So when I arrived at 6pm our room wasn't ready. Fortunately, the staff jumped on it and we had a room 20 minutes later.
The next morning at breakfast, there was no milk for all the kids staying. How can they run out of milk?
Bed was not very comfortable.
Staff was very nice and tried to be accommodating but they appear to be trying to get a lot done with limited resources.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Stacey98 Noticeable Downward Slide
We have been coming to this property since shortly before it opened when we take and our kids to camp and pick them up in this area. Sometimes we stay one night and sometimes several. It's a busy time for the hotel and they charge almost $200 per room at this time. For many years this was a very well run property that bent over backwards for its' guests. I'm sad to report that this is no longer the case.
Specifically, the biggest problem was with the barely functioning WIFI. Signal strength even in the lobby was weak. But even with a signal, our family's phones and laptop timed out on almost every web search. Since this hotel is in the mountains, we counted on the hotel's internet connection since cell coverage is intermittent. The front desk's response was that "we reset the router so that should help". It didn't. I don't think this is a new problem for this hotel and it bothers me that with the vast resources available to them through Holiday Inn Worldwide that they allowed this problem to become our problem.
Some of the other annoyances here made us all question whether the hotel was desperately trying to cut costs at the guests expense. Not a good feeling when you happen to be paying rack rate. Toiletries seemed very low quality. I don't need to see brand name products in the bathroom, but bulk packed highly scented green soap in an open plastic baggie made us feel like we were in a cheap 70's motel. Shampoo and conditioner were also very unappealing and set a new low standard for us --- we bought our own travel sized items at a nearby drugstore.
Certain room annoyances showed a real lack of attention to detail. For example, every outlet in the room was fully occupied, so to charge a phone something else had to be unplugged. So if you want to plug in your phone or laptop anywhere near the bed, you had to decide whether to unplug the clock and watch it flash or unplug the light and sit in darkness --- assuming you're willing to move the night table and get on the floor and look for the outlets. The coffee maker was on top of the microwave which was on top of the refrigerator. I understand that it would be unplugged for safety reasons, but there was no available outlet to plug into unless you got on your knees to unplug one of the other appliances.
The complimentary breakfast was something that we liked about this hotel in the past. Now, poorly run and unappealing. No milk of any sort on Sunday at 8AM---not even for coffee. We were told that they "ran out". It made us wonder when they ran out of milk. If it was my hotel, I would have bought milk locally if I didn't manage my inventory right.
All in all, very disappointing. There seemed to be a total absence of pride in what was once a well run property. We will be looking for other options in the future.
