We stayed at the Downtown Inn over the weekend for a quick getaway. The price is good for the location. The main reason I chose this hotel was because of the location and the fact that it was dog friendly. Yes, the rooms are basic and the furniture looks cheap, but the location

We've stayed at the Downtown for our Asheville visits for several years now. It is not fancy, but it's clean with standard amemities. The reason it's getting a four eye rating is value. The room rate for last night (Saturday, February 16, 2019) was $102. If you aren't

Thank you for staying with us, and we appreciate your feedback! Recently, we have made many significant investments in the property. For example, we have stocked our guest rooms with new furniture, wall paper, carpet, mattresses and appliances. We are also nearing the completion of a new pool deck and an updated hotel facade.

This hotel doesn't pretend to be something it is not. It has the perfect location for an amazing rate with clean rooms and comfortable beds. I have stayed here 4 times in the last 2 years, and much prefer it AS IS, than pay 2 to 3 times more at the other downtown Asheville

Upon entering the lobby of the hotel it looked to be a run down college dormitory. It is an old property in a great location that could have some potential. I took the old elevator, thinking maybe the steps would be more reliable, but it did make it to my floor. Once there you

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this guest experienced. Our lobby was recently renovated, but, unfortunately, it did not meet this guest's tatse. Recently, all guest rooms were stocked with new furniture, wall paper, mattresses and appliances. Also, at the cost of half a million dollars, we built and installed a new elevator tower and a new elevator on the parking lot side of the building. This guest must not have seen this brand-new elevator and therefore used our old elevator, which has also been recently upgraded to show the elevator's location and its upward or downward movements. Both elevators are regularly maintenanced then inspected by N.C.D.O.L. as displayed on the Certificate of Operation that is in each elavator. Unfortunately, this was not enough for this guest. We apologize for the bug bites, but we unequivocably deny that there are any bed bugs at this hotel. This property maintains a 98.0-A sanitation rating, which is well above average, and we regulary inspect all beds to eliminate any possibility of bed bugs. There is no proof that this accusations is valid. Futhermore, we do not even have this individual registered in our system as a recent guest, but perhaps it is possible that she stayed with another guest in the hotel.

So - perfect location - for being right downtown - if you want to be right downtown - which downtown Asheville is a great place to be - so who wouldn't - unless you are literally just passing through - and then - stay out by the highway? This place is cool - and NOT corporate.

How far away are you located from the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium/Civic Center?
I don't think it's close. Ask when you call. If you are familiar with Asheville it's right close to Tupelo Honey

They have rooms for those who smoke (like my wife), and the bathrooms have a door (our rooms have always been nice).

"Ask for additional towels in the room. They only give you two. Also, request a room on the 2nd floor or above that faces the street."
"5th floor (top) is usually quiet"
"Rooms on the street side are nosier, ask for a room on the mountain side (away from the main street.)"
"Go higher for less noise"
"Just ask for the room you want with a smile. You might get it."
