... on just about every corner, grand ones and plain ones. On the way we had a hilarious time listening to country radio which played all the great "classics" such as "She thinks my tractor's sexy" and an old favourite "I don't have you but I've got my chainsaw". Yes seriously! Soooo funny! We've got business meetings tomorrow and then we'll go for a bit of an explore later in the evening before ...
... or so, we got to Farlow Gap. There was a stake here and we were able to pick up Farlow Gap Trail (#106), which leads to the waterfall. This trail was much more cleared and blazed and a lot easier to follow. The trail was quite steep, but going this way it was heading down so not nearly as bad. However, it would not be fun climbing up going in the other direction. In about a mile, we got to Shuck Ridge Creek ...
Went to our first Waffle House (sounds more native if you don't pronounce any of the syllables), a greasy spoon diner. All the staff were very stressed cooking our food just in front of us. People were still allowed to smoke. Felt like a diner stuck in the 80s. Found out that I'd won some money on the lotto, a small fortune at £25. Drove on to Asheville a country town on the border of North Carolina. Pulled off the freeway to do some more country driving, try to see ...
... with a disposable BBQ so we grabbed some meat and beers and races up the famous blue ridge parkway- a famous 469 mile scenic route that follows the mountain ridge from north Virginia to South Carolina. We found a spot not actually facing the sunset but still with a view of the blue hazy mist mountains and had our bacon wrapped burgers and beers. Almost ran out of petrol on the way back, cruising in with 1 mile left on the ...
... I did have one tiny thrill. I got to take a detour and walk a little bit
of the Appalachian Trail. I know it will never happen but I would love to hike the entire trail little by little. I’d better hurry up though to conquer that Bucket List. But I did hike a tiny bit of it and I’m satisfied with that.
After we caught our breath ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsBaymont Inn Asheville / Biltmore
I would highly recommend Biltmore Inn. The service was very high, our king bed room with view of Blue Ridge Parkway was brilliant and our degustation dinner at the Dining Room was wonderful. We will come back!

Historical Traveler Reviews Baymont Inn Asheville / Biltmore
Baymont in October
We stayed at the Baymont on October 22. We were in Asheville for a wedding. Even though it was peak season due to the changing leaves, we found the rate to be very reasonable. The rooms were very clean, there was a large tv, bathroom was clean. The bed was your average hotel bed. A little hard, but we slept fine. The rooms were quiet too. I never heard any noise through the walls.
Breakfast was good. We got down there right when breakfast was supposed to be over, but there was still fruit, juices, and coffee available. The staff in the kitchen were very kind when I asked them for cream and sugar for the coffee, that had already been put away.
We had an overall good experience, and would stay there again.
This was our first time staying in a Baymont Inn. My husband and I enjoyed the Biltmore Estate Package. Rich and the other staff members were professional and helpful. The room was clean with a fresh smell. The room is large enough for two, especially if you will be out touring the city. In addition to sausage, eggs,pastries and biscuits, the breakfast was healthy with fruit, yogurt, cereal and juices.
Easiest Location to the Biltmore House
It was super easy for me to get over to the Biltmore House for the 3 days I visited there with my yearly pass.
The personnel are friendly. Room was really clean. Quiet. Breakfast clean and good, but, of course, the usual free fare.
Someone pushed the fire buzzer on the elevator, which set the alarms off. A guest across the hall went downstairs and learned it was false. Personnel were up on the hall the next time it happened. I was not inconvenienced with this.
I will definitely stay there again.
Good Value - Asheville Baymont Inn
We received excellent service at the Asheville Baymont Inn. Rich, who works at the desk, was both registration clerk and concierge. His kind attention and pleasant personality made us feel welcome the minute we arrived. Also the Asheville Baymont Inn has neat rooms, a breakfast buffet, cookies at mid-day, an indoor pool and a gym. At the registration desk look for the 10% discount card for the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant that is just two blocks away.
A Very Fair Deal and Pleasant Stay
We used the 2 nights Biltmore Escape package, which is $ 235 for 2 nights and includes 2 Biltmore tickets ($80 value) , $25 gift card for the Texas Steakhouse next door, and a free bottle of Biltmore wine which we saw priced at 12.99 at the Winery. So you get at least a $ 275 value for $235. That means the room was valued about $79 a night with a typical continental breakfast included. A very very fair deal. Here is the link for this deal:
The rooms are new, clean- ah yes, the famous Rich was at the front desk and he lived up to his reputation for honest assistance and pleasantry, but the other gentlemen on the other shifts were just as pleasant and helpful.
If you are looking for a place to have a good sleep and clean facilities without the luxuries, this is for you. The entrance to the Biltmore iestate is only 2 blocks up the road, the Biltmore village shops just outside of that entrance across the street. No matter what, you WILL be driving a car to the Biltmore, as once you get to the entrance, it is miles of winding roads up the house. And you will need a car to get around to the other parts of the estate like the Winery and the farm.
The reason the room seems small is that they have the vanity and sink outside of the bathroom/shower, not in it. But I could care less. There was plenty of room for 2 people in the bedroom/living area with a desk and TV. Go and have a good time folks..
My wife and I stayed at the Baymont Inn last weekend based on reviews I had read here in Tripadvisor. Yes indeed, Rich was super nice and helpful and gave good recommendations. And the location is great in terms of going to the Biltmore.
The rest of our experience was not so positive, however. Everything about the hotel was small (except the prices). The lobby and halls were small, and so was our room. The elevator was both small and slow, and no we weren't the only people we heard complain about it. The room was clean.
Breakfast was a madhouse largely because the breakfast area was so small. Food is fair-- about what you would expect for a chain that has continental breakfast included.
We paid $130 for a Friday night and $90 for Saturday. I know the area is popular and small and therefore expensive, but in no way did this represent a reasonable value for the money.
This hotel was above our expectations. The room was very clean - the vanity very large - the shower head actually had some water pressure behind it - the pool water was not cold - and the staff were all very helpful and friendly. It was close to the Biltmore and the village with restaurants in both directions (although the Flatrock Grille was the best!). I would highly recommend this hotel - we had no complaints (and we are complainers!!).
For a standard/chain hotel, it can't be beat
The Baymont in Asheville is a great hotel as far as a chain hotel goes. It's not a Hyatt, but you don't pay Hyatt-like prices either to stay there.
We were greeted by an excellent desk clerk upon check-in by the name of Rich. Super nice guy that took great care of us. I've never had a better check-in experience.
The room was pretty much standard, everything was clean and comfortable. The bed gave both my fiancÚ and I one of the best nights sleep we'd ever had at any hotel.
They offer high-speed Internet, which to me is almost a necessity now when I travel. I'm still amazed at how many of the 'big boys' in the hotel industry haven't caught up to the new millennium now. The only critique there was nothing in the room indicated it, so any 'newbies' might have had a tough time figuring it out.
Nice fitness/workout area, and great indoor pool and hot tub.
Breakfast was about what you'd expect at a chain like this in the morning. It was ok, pastries, cereal, etc... but nothing great. Just pretty much average. It's included at no additional charge.
Location is great, close to downtown and Biltmore.
If you're looking for a nice hotel for a weekend get-a-way, you won't beat the Baymont. The only complaint I had was that the room was going for $89-$99. I honestly believe it should have been priced around $79 for the quality. But the friendliness of the staff and the great amenities the hotel offered helped justify the extra $10-$20 bucks.
Great place to stay and we will definately go back
I choose the Baymont Inn because it is just two blocks from the Biltmore Estate entrance. The location was terrific. The hotel is very clean, new looking and nicely decorated. It had an INDOOR poor and jacuzzi as well as an exercise room. The continental breakfast provided a very nice selection of food. When we arrived chocolate chip cookies were available in the lounge area for guests. The staff was very efficient and professional. We got a room with two double beds and it was a little small but not a big deal to us. Several nice restaurants around the area. Someone referred us to Providence 620 for dinner and it is about a mile away and had great food!!! We would definately go back and stay at the Baymont inn.
Nice,Clean, Good Location
Had the opportunity to spend the weekend here in mid-Nov 2003. Was clean and very basic. No frills. We did enjoy the breakfast served every morning.
There is an indoor pool, but no movies available to purchase from the TV in the room.
Very close to Biltmore & shopping. I would stay here again.
