The friendly staff had our keys ready on arrival--excellent! All hotels should do this! Our room was newly renovated, looked great, and had plenty of lighting. It did have a bit of a funky smell, which was likely new paint, carpet glue, offgassing, or a combination thereof. The layout was smart with nice, new furnishings. The bed was comfortable and...

We stayed here visiting from the UK. We were on the top floor on the back of the hotel without a balcony but had the piece away from the main road. The rooms have been just refurbished. The bedroom is big with Two king beds and flat screen TV. There is a very small gym facility with indoor jacuzzi and...

Getting remodeled which is good. Needed it. The building is showing is age. Luckily we did get a renowned room. The new furniture is a improvement but WOW the lights are over the top bright.

This is the second time staying at this hotel. It appears they are working on some updates which it needs. That being said it always provides us with a quiet and clean room.

Stayed at this hotel while on a business trip to Asheville. The hotel is located near the outlet mall and next to the I-26 freeway. It is a good budget hotel with clean, large rooms and comfy beads. Breakfast is included in the room rate. My only complaint would be that the heating and cooling units are a bit loud,...

We stayed here while visiting the Biltmore for its Candlelight Christmas. It was clean and had a very comfortable bed. If you are military, you get a discount on your room. Location is right in front of the Asheville Outlets, so if you want to go shopping there you are in a prime spot. To get to Biltmore only took...

This is a typical Holiday Inn Express. Basic but very clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast was OK. If you want a good breakfast go to a restaurant down the street. Good location. Was about 5 miles to the Biltmore Estate and la little less to the Asheville shopping district. Casual restaurants within about 1/4 mile.

We spent two nights here and enjoyed our stay. Hotel was clean, rooms were comfortable, staff was friendly. Loved the location of being right off the interstate for us. You are about a 5 minute drive (if that) to the entrance of the Blue Ridge Parkway. We got in the car and took a beautiful drive up there with wonderful...

Hotel was in process of renovating but this caused no disruption to our visit. Everything was clean. Bed was very uncomfortable; mattress was thin and worn. Duct tape around carpet in elevator. Breakfast had good cinnamon rolls but that's it. Staff was inconsistent. Some were friendly, some didn't even respond to a "hello." Maybe things will be better after renovation.

We always stay at Holiday Inn Express and this is the only one I have rated average. When we arrived there was construction on the 3rd floor we were on the first floor and it was really loud.
