My husband and I came to Asheville for a weekend getaway with friends. We waited until the last minute to book a hotel, and the mountaineer inn was one of the only places left. We did not expect much, since we paid $45 for our room, which was a good thing... It was pretty bad! Very old rooms, spiders throughout the room, wood paneled walls, dark, dingy. We actually went to the local wal-mart and purchased a bedding set for $20, to feel more comfortable about what we were sleeping on! Our friends booked a room for $65 and stayed in the back building, their room was much better than ours (which was in the original front building right off the road.) my suggestion is to only book this as a last resort or if you are on a very tight budget. And even then, request the newer rooms in the second building. Overall, I would not stay here again and would not recommend this!
