Blue Ridge Getaway


September 25, 2023


We had a great 4 day stay at the Candlewood Suites. The location is ideal. There are so many attractions in close proximity to the property. The property looks to be new and is well kept by the staff.

We enjoyed the pool, BBQ area, and especially the roof top lounge/garden. The views from the roof were amazing. The property had a free laundry facility for guests and had a state of the art security system. There were CCTV cameras on the perimeter and on each floor. The elevator was secured with card access. I am a physical security professional and was happy to the proactive posture at the property.

We also enjoyed the staff at the desk on the day and evening shift were more than helpful. The staff member on the evening shift was outstanding. She helped us with some of day trip planning. She gave us some really good advise of some sites to see and places to eat.

If we come back to the Asheville area we will be staying there again. We have stayed in many IHG properties all around the nation and this property was one of the better ones we stayed at.

We recommend this property withourtreservation!

Nice room


September 24, 2023

This motel is excellent especially if you are going to stay for an extended time. There is a kitchen in each room. There are many restaurants around too. The only complaint was there were no coffee filters in the room. Just check that.

We loved this hotel.


September 21, 2023


We could not have been more pleased with the Candlewood Suites. The location was phenomenal. At first a bit confused as it is a downtown listing - but did not look as though it was a downtown location. A very short drive proved otherwise. The hotel was located centrally; we really enjoyed the kitchenette and the free laundry was much appreciated. We also enjoyed time on the rooftop balcony with beautiful views of the mountains.
