The Beaucatcher
Ranked #27 of 39 Asheville B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 April 2017

Made a last minute reservation 3 hours prior to arriving and we were not pleased when we finally made it. Hotel looked nothing like the pics or description. Back building was condemned, shady transactions in back when we pulled in...addressed this to management but they would not refund because of the 48 hour rule. It's hard to give 48 hours notice when the reservation was made 3 hours beforehand. Anyway, we went ahead and accepted the loss and luckily found a different place to stay. They changed names soon after from Blue Ridge Motor Lodge to Beaucatcher. Probably because of all the bad reviews. Oh, well. you live and you learn

Room Tip: be sure to read all reviews before making a decision. That was our mistake.

Newly renovated, this well priced hotel will meet all of your needs. It's better appointed than the Hampton Inns I've visited recently and has a great desk staff. The beds were super comfortable with more pillows than we could use. Granite countertops old style--right outside the tub/shower combo. Even the toiletries were delightful. We were in town to visit UNC Asheville which is just about 5 minutes away. I'd definitely stay here again.

We stayed one night at this hotel and for the money, it's pretty good. The lady who checked us in was very nice and polite. Our room felt clean and it was a decent size. Every room has a patio or balcony which is cool. The location felt safe with many restaurants near by and it's close to the Biltmore.

I will admit the breakfast is not the best. There are very few options.

There is a a nice sitting area with lights and a grill in the middle of the property. We sat out there for a little bit with some wine.

Anyway, this place is not super fancy but it's clean and safe. I like staying at non chain hotels to support local businesses. Great place!

I was hesitant about this place when booking because it was so affordable that I thought something has to be wrong. I was wonderfully surprised! It's beautiful and very clean. The staff was very friendly, there was great coffee in the lobby in the morning and it's very close to downtown (less than 5 mins). I highly recommend checking it out. We've decided that this is going to be our go to place when we come back.

The motel/hotel is decent enough. The room and bathroom were clean. You can definitely see their attempt at modernizing a motor inn with new furnishings, paint, etc. Bed wasn't very comfortable, but the real problem is bed bugs. We checked into a downstairs room (20) and halfway through the night, I woke up with bed bug bites on my upper arms and right hand. To any skeptics, I've unfortunately had multiple incidents with bed bugs, and I know that these bites were caused by bed bugs. In reading previous reviews left by other guests, it seems that they've had bed bug problems before. You are better off finding a different place to stay unless you want to run the risk of getting bit or bringing bed bugs home.
