This motel is disgusting!! Some many problems with the room. The customer service was the worst I have ever dealt with. Stay away. They will not refund your money no matter what you do!!! Things need to be updated. The pillows were badly stained. Headboard had cigarette burns. Stay away from this hotel!

Bad bad experience, we called ahead to let them know we were booking through priceline and the guy that answer told us we could come and book with them that he'll keep the price we had with priceline. When we got there the same guy was super rude and said that it was more expensive and at the moment he... More

Even though we confirmed our reservation and we paid in advance for 3 days. We arrived only to find that our room was given away because we arrived after 6 PM. But not all was lost.....there just happened to be one room available at a much higher rate. Since the clerk was uncooperative and we hadn't any options we stayed.... More

I booked this hotel and called back immediately because I was unable to make my reservations. The owner was extremely rude and told me he would not give any refund. I called back the next day and he was screaming over the phone "no refund"! I don't understand how someone could be so rude to customers?? I will never stay... More

We turned the wrong way to the hotel we were going to stay. Saw this place. It looked nice and clean. There were quite a few cars, so we decided to try it. Glad we did. Saved enough for a nice breakfast. The room was very small, but super clean. Bed was great. Sheets were super white, clean and crisp.... More

My husband and I drove through a night from Chicago to NC and were exhausted, and this was the first motel we came across in Asheville. We asked the manager if we could just stay there for the day, not even a night. He said the rate was $85 which I found to be high, but we accepted. We got... More

This was by far my worst hotel experience ever! I only choose to stay at this motel so that I could get to work during some bad weather.

The owners don't invest any money or time to keep this motel up. The walls are dirty and where they did paint, it was just spot painting and of course the paint didn't match the existing paint.
