Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SueZw Hotel's pool area
Before checking into the hotel we found out the pools (indoor and outdoor) were not working. We were told in the call to come to the check in and they would be able to tell us whether the pool would be corrected. Since we were meeting many relatives for a stay during a wedding, we did go. After arriving we were told that they had fixed the pools (The hotel has indoor and outdoor.). After checking into 3 rooms for family (staying 3days) our grandchildren went downstairs and found out the indoor pool worked but nothing else. I could continue on about how disappointed we were about this hotel. My main issue is that this hotel wasn't honest at check in which should not ever happen. We did leave in two days rather staying the full 3 we originally intended.
I have been a club member for at least 25 years and was not happy with this hotel stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dfw24 Would not recommend
At first glance the lobby was beautiful, but on second look, furniture was shabby and outdated. The carpets in the common areas, especially the fifth floor were very dirty. Our mattress sagged in the middle and the sheets did not fit properly so that they pulled away everytime we moved. On our second day, we were out by 10am until 5pm and our room was not cleaned! We advised staff of all the above and weren't even offered to be moved to a clean room with a decent mattress. We were going to stay for a third night, but changed our minds.

Pulling into front of the facility was a preview of what was to come.
The grounds were neat and orderly,the plantings were well tended and the entryway was immaculate.
I would recommend this facility to my family and friends. I would rate the experience as "2 thumbs up"!!!

It was a very nice facility and very cost effective.
However, the restaurant bar closed early and it was very noisy. WE could hear our neighbors conversations.

OK for a night stay while traveling.
- AC unit is room very loud.
- TV volume was limited so when AC was on, could not hear TV well.
- I like to get up early and go read the paper in the lobby while my wife sleeps; lighting for reading very poor in lobby before Sun comes up.
- One of TVs in lobby did not work.
- Pillows where marked hard & soft, but all appeared to be hard and where to small.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Watt Recent stay
I own rental property in Asheville area, so I come to Asheville 5-7 times a year. I have always considered HI an excellent option and I am a Rewards card member with Rewars Visa Card.
This stay was not as good.
The bed ,which I have been always thought was excellent, was uncomfortable in room 201. The mattress cover /pad must have been old and was an uncomfortble mess in the middle of the night and should be replaced. My electronic key had to be replaced every day, so I had to walk from the 2nd floor entrance to front to get in. The staff had no idea why I was having the problem. I purchased the option with room and breakfast but if I had just bought breakfast that would have been cheaper.
I'll try another hotel when I visit in June and see if I get a better stay.

Nice hotel but a little out dated. Beds are comfortable but hallways have a musty smell.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Westech Needs updating
Older multi-story Holiday Inn close to Interstate. Easy-in/easy-out.
Lobby large and spacious with several flat screen TVs.
On site restaurant and bar OK for burgers etc.
Carpets in public areas old, stained and in need of cleaning.
Room furniture old, chipped and shop-worn. The entire place seems focused on servicing the low-budget convention segment.
For the money there are better choices for a vacationing family.
We're Priority Club members who try to stay loyal to the brand but it's getting tough to do as it seems the multi-story H.I.s are not up to standards.
We reluctantly recommend the place if nothing else were available.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Golfknots Good Location
Arrival and departure was disappointing, staff did not seem to be interested in greeting or processing. Questions about bill on departure were brushed off and not adequately answered, now I have to review with my credit card company, not good enough.
Restaurant was minimal but server was great, thank you for that.
Hallway carpets could be cleaned. Ice machines broken on 3rd and 4th floor, had to go to 5th just to get ice.
Proximity to Biltmore Estate was great and a bonus.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ballmom10 Rude Staff
We were with a travel baseball team and travel ALOT and I would have to say that this was one of the rudest hotels that we have ever stayed in. The staff was extremely rude. Who in their right mind puts a swimming pool in the lobby? Yes the kids are going to be loud and have a good time after a hard day of ball but yet they can't becuase they get told to be quite by the staff while in the pool. Another of our friends air didn't work and they refused to fix it. For all the traveling that we do and in this area...big loss for your hotel.

We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend staying at this Holiday Inn. The beds were very comfortable, the food was good, the staff was friendly and it was very clean. I would definitely stay here again if I get back to this area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CheapSk8 Good food at a reasonable price, even on Christmas Day
Hoping to get a bite to eat in a local eatery on Christmas Day in Asheville, we were unsuccessful but the Hotel Restaurant came through and was good food for a good price. The kids ate free and the beer was cold. We will return.

Loved the hotel - nice, and welcoming lobby and staff. The rooms were standard, nothing special, but they were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was surprisingly big. We had dinner at the restaurant and were pleasantly surprised by the food quality.

This was a very nice hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful and seemed to the city well - gave me great directions to the Biltmore Estate. They had a indoor pool (did not use) and the lobby smelled a little of chlorine, but was fine at check out. Rooms were clean and comfortable, what you would expect.
Overall, we enjoyed out stay, and if we return would stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tech1119 great room and housekeeping staff.
unless i stay more than 1 night, I don't particularly like to have housekeeping clean my room. But they were very nice about it and replenished my towels, also asked if I needed anything else.
Two of the three times I went through the main lobby the coffee table was out of coffee, or sugar, or creamer. Also don't care for the creamer not having at least one choice of plain or flavored. Overall I find that Holiday Inn or Express is cleaner and the staff nicer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NuclearSystemsEngineer *ALMOST* WHAT WE EXPECTED
1. Impressive architecture, nice locationl
2. Very friendly, knowledgeable front desk staff.
3. Room freshly renovated...very attractive, squeaky clean!
1. No Priority Club recognition of any kind whatsoever. It was not even mentioned... the first time at any ICH property I've stayed in (totaling *weeks* each year, over a number of years).
2. Hall carpet on our floor was very dirty, needs deep cleaning or replacement. Perhaps it was part of renovation not yet done...(?)
3. Bring your own pillows!! (We actually saw others doing that.) The 4 in our room were almost square chunks, very short, much too thick. We had a King bed and it would have taken 7-8 of them, end-to-end, to cross the bed. They were lumpy and very uncomfortable, the worst I've ever encountered in frequent travels. My wife has a temporary condition that requires her to sleep propped up so we had asked for extra pillows in our reservation but they were not provided.
These three CONS could be easily fixed. That would make this hotel much more enjoyable, and give it an exemplary rating.

After problems at Asheville East (bad personnel, under construction and not noted on website, room key did not work ) we contacted Priority Club and had them book Asheville West. Mel at front desk made a world of difference, great room, great lounge and staff. Next trip to Biltmore Estate, we will stay at Ashville West property.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CoffeeQueen Beautiful lobby, awesome staff
On the road all day, found this property for an extremely reasonable price through the website. Location was right off expressway, lots of restaurants at the exit. The staff, both night and morning, were extremely friendly and helpful...and the lobby was so warm and inviting! The fireplace was lit, lots of plants around the pool...yes an indoor pool. Just very comfortable, with newspaper and coffee in the morning.

This is my second stay in this hotel in Asheville. Room is nice but there is a problem with flash toilet and cleaners does not do proper cleaning with bad attitude. I can hear they were talking bad about guests and can't be patients for guests to leave before the check out time. Reception desk staffs are not very friendly. Too arrogant.

Overall, this is a good value. Be careful about your personal property. My car was broken into overnight.
The staff did not seem that concerned. No security cameras but they did say that they had a night security guard.
I am not sure where he sleeps though.
