Guest Reviews

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 265 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed I booked 3 rooms. Most importantly one room was promised to be wheel chair accessible. The first supposedly accessible room we entered had a regular bathtub...NOT wheel chair accessible. Eventually it was switched. The second room booked was a suite. Upon entering the first suite we discovered that not only was the A/C not working but most of the electrical outlets didn't work. This room was switched to another tired looking suite where the furniture had not been replaced for a LONG time. The third room, a standard room, we discovered during the night was behind an elevator shaft. Needless to say this was not the quietest of rooms, but did not request a switch. Additionally, the elevator we used to get to the accessible room could best be described as disgusting.....dirty, shaky, and paneled in poorly painted plywood! Brunch was good, but dinner could generously be described as fair. The setting of the hotel is lovely, but the rooms, and some of the common areas need ALOT of attention. May 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Downtown Asheville Trip Stayed at the Crown Plaza since most downtown hotels were booked or too expensive. The shuttle to dntn was a pleasant surprise and was clean and convenient. May 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I needed Check in was slow. Only 1 person checking people in even though there were 2 other people behind the check in counter. Otherwise the hotel was adequate for my needs. Could have used a bigger table to work from in my room. Property is close to downtown and highways which was convenient. May 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful stay The only thing I would suggest is when you have a wedding party staying, and you get the Bride & Groom's name, try to keep the party on the same floor, or at least in the same building. There were family members all over the property, and we thought we would be closer than we were. We had family who drove a very long way , and we didn't get to see them at the hotel alot. There was a prom, and other wedding parties there, so lobby didn't have room for visiting. Other than that, We really enjoyed the hotel. I would definately go back.. Thanks May 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by conference Nice place with good service, great location and great customer service. Complaint for conference rooms-they were too cold. I know you can't please everyone when there is a conference but I was very uncomfortable. Other than that we had a pleasant stay. May 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gorgeous and comfortable! This location is so beautiful and well maintained. The rooms were spacious and clean. The patio was an excellent addition, with the gorgeous weather it was great for relaxing. I found the fitness room to be well appointed, and unfortunately was unable to try out the large gym due to time constraints. Love that they are pet friendly! Only "wish" was for a larger refrigerator and a microwave in the room. Otherwise this was the perfect stay. Great staff that was helpful and friendly! May 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KCA show This hotel proved to be ideal for our event. The layout of the hotel and courteous staff were top notch! May 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service hotel From checking in to checking out, the staff couldn't be more accommodating. Shannon the manager was great. So was Lynn in reservations and all the front desk staff. The room was terrific and everyone was friendly. Saying hello, good morning and good evening every time I passed by the front desk area. I would highly recommend this hotel. Is very convenient to downtown Asheville and all highways. May 3, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disgusting! I have stayed at this hotel many times since October 2013. I haven't been here in several months and I am saddened by its decline. It used to be that you'd check in to friendly, accommodating staff. I was greeted by a very sour manager and directed to my room in very brusque fashion. When I climbed into bed at 10pm, I found a dirty sock! I found this after I overlooked the dead spiders on the floor at the baseboards of the room. The manager escorted me to a new room. She did follow up to see if everything was ok. With the exception of a static-filled television, I thought things were fine. The next morning when I got in the shower and closed the curtain, a used, dirty washcloth fell on me. I shared my concerns with the manager the evening before and with the assistant manager in the morning. Apologies, but no question of how they could make things better. Sad, sad decline of customer service and quality. April 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff, great location My wife and I attended a conference held at the hotel, so we got to mix business, training, and a visit to Asheville. The room was large and the bed very comfortable - we slept great. The staff is awesome - from the front desk to the shuttle drivers that bring you in & out of downtown Asheville. We had a great stay - really like this hotel! April 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Front Desk Staff was Fantastic Overall great experience, food was superb and a good value, Front Desk Staff was very helpful, professional and friendly! Plan on return visit! April 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Hotel! We loved the hotel. The staff was phenomenal and Asheville is a great place to visit. We will definitely stay here again. April 24, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Older Property I had high expectations for this property. Being a Crowne Plaza I assumed the hotel would be top notch and beautiful especially being nestled in the mountains. I was disappointed though. The staff was friendly at check in and I was able to find my room without a issue. However once in the room I noticed some upkeep issues. It was quite obvious where new wallpaper had been placed in the room because at points on the wall the panel to the left was a shade darker than the panel on the right. It was not a striped wallpaper just a bad upkeep job. The door to get into the building I was staying in had a security bolt that had been vandalized. Luckily there was a magnetic strip at the top of the door that would release when you put in your key card. It was very unattractive when first entering into the building though. The stay was nice I was just disappointed in the quality of the upkeep of the hotel. It was obvious it was an older property which I definitely know in time does not look like it use to in its prime.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lovely location and great hotel A lovely hotel in a good location, close to interstate and with extensive grounds. Fitness facilities are close by, although the hike up the hill can be strenuous after a workout. Thanks to all the staff for making my stay one to remember! April 15, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by terrible stay @ Crown Plaza Worst hotel stay. Charged up more for the room then what it was booked for. Charged for every little extra thing that was provided. The beds were the wrong size the we were charged for the roll out bed. Overcharged for breakfast, and had to watched the Employee's fight over who was going to clean the tables. Defiantly would never stay there again April 13, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Needs a refresh - and update into the 2010's The hotel is below average overall, and needs a complete refresh. Worn looking throughout. The rooms are "old" - the a/c units are noisy and don't cool the room below "luke cool". Electrical outlets are scarce, which is a problem with all of today's electronics. Wireless internet is weak in the rooms, upgrade definitely needed! April 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wonderful staff I was there for a relaxing, weekend getaway. The staff were very pleasant and the manager was very accommodating in getting me a room in a quieter part of the hotel. The same manager(Lori) followed up to make sure I was happy with the room I was in. She was very professional and I felt also sincere in wanting me to get the relaxation I came there for. An overall great experience. I would definitely stay there again. April 2, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed in quality of hotel There was only a very small micro fridge in the room. The bed was one of those where you sunk in the middle of the bed. I have slept in better quality beds in less expensive hotels. We went for the breakfast buffet in the restaurant and was disappointed with the quality of the food. First we had to wait a while for someone to come out and cook our eggs at the egg station. When they did come out from the back they started talking to other staff instead of taking our order. When we did get our eggs the whites of the eggs weren't cooked. We have had much better quality "free" breakfasts at other hotels. March 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Enjoyable Stay Room very clean and comfortable bed. Staff very friendly and accommodating. March 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super Pet Friendly Hotel This hotel is wonderful! The staff was great! I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling with pets! We will definitely stay there again! February 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hidden Jewel I was only in town for one night however, I had a great stay. The property is located perfectly in Asheville to give you the privacy of a resort yet close enough to everything that you can be there within minutes. Great place! February 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very far from expectation First. Our room was ready an hour after the checking time . Very strong odor of cigarette in the room. Probably 35 cigarette butts outside on the ground ; nasty. I chose to take the suite with loft. Freezing downstairs and stuffy and boiling hot on the first level. Old furnitures. Staff not pleasant. I have my own business and been on hospitality business for 20 years... Wow. What a difference when I was running hotel myself. This place was recommended . I definitely won't. Especially with all the corporates that I know traveling to Asheville. February 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Front desk staff were excellant, more than helpfull and accommodating. Friendly front desk staff were excellent, support staff were good. Enjoyed our stay, would recommend this location. February 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Room temperature The HVAC unit had too much variance. No matter what temperature you set the unit it would get too hot and then too cold before it would start again. February 13, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Room temperature Ratings would have been excellent if room temperature could have been controlled during the night. Room thermostat was set at 60 degrees when I arrived and room was still way too hot. I adjusted it to 58 and 59 but the room then got too cold. Must have been either a bad thermostat or cold air from the windows creating false readings. February 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bugs in room If you like stink bugs, this is the place for you! February 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Overall stay Staff and services were excellent. Pool and staff there were excellent in service. Only recommend that firmer pillows be available. all else was excellent and I would recommend this location to all my friends. January 30, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Hotel This is a great hotel with some great customer service. I come to the area very regularly and utilize this hotel everytime. The bar serve is awesome here, and most the time the bar tenders are very personable. However, I have started noticing the beds are probably close to their time for replacement; and the bathrooms are well overdue for a makeover; I really miss the all famous IHG hotel shower heads that normally are present in all IHG hotels, however there is a basic ANYSTREAM one here. Otherwise, this is a great hotel, and will be staying here again in the future! January 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fine Experience The hotel room was a bit dirty at times, but I think this may have been due to the sheer volume of customers staying at the hotel for Lindy Focus XII, and the number of rooms that needed to be cleaned daily. The hotel is well maintained, has good exercise facilities, and knowledgeable staff. January 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Helpful staff, dog friendly, close to downtown Room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed! They had so many amenities that we didn't get to experience, because we were just passing through Asheville for the night. Wish we could have stayed longer. January 7, 2014
