Country Inn & Suites Asheville at Biltmore Square
Travel Blogs from Asheville
... Terrace, located on the outdoor terrace of the 100 year old Main Inn. An iconic upscale, classic restaurant it features traditional American cuisine and an award winning wine list, along with breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. No sunset tonight but scenic misty mountains peek out of the clouds. The service is excellent! Starting with the luscious oysters on the half shell, we share the delicious roasted beet ...
... 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 ...
... of fags!" Whilst another one was shouting "y'all gay!" Worried that things were gonna escalate,bwe quickly made it for the car before one could pull some kind of hillbilly weapon on us. Drove up to Asheville checked into Ramada Hotel a nice on the outskirts. Bought a couple of burgers and using our disposable BBQ that we hadn't used from the last time, we cooked up some burgers and bacon over looking the rolling landscape of the Blue Ridge Parkway as sunset. Cracked open some ...
Added another fast food joint to our ever expanding list. Waffle House for breakfast where they frantically make your food in front of you as you sit round the open plan kitchen and watch the chaos. Left the place topped up on sugar and feeling stressed from just watching them all try get their orders in first so they increase their chance of getting a tip. Still, only costing us $5 for a big breakfast can't complain. Drove ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Country Inn & Suites Asheville at Biltmore Square
Really a great place.....
I stayed here last weekend and I was so glad that I did. Compared to the more expensive places around town, the Country Inn is in a class by itself. Yes, parking was a pain, but not enough for us to dislike this hotel at all. It has a wonderful location and is barely 10 minutes from the Biltmore. Staff was nice and the room was clean and well appointed. Our beds were also very comfortable. Stay at this hotel - you won't regret it!
Hard to beat...
This place has a better breakfast than most restaurants. The breakfast lady had everything ready early, and kept the place neat and clean. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Pool was as clean as my own. Staff was friendly and helpfull. Only problem I could see was the parking is a bit tight for the large vehicle I drive, but right next door is a monster super market lot where the manager gave me the ok to park. Regular autos should have no problem.
Not Enough Parking Spaces for Paying Guests
We enjoy staying at Country Inn and Suites, and have done so in 4 states in the past week.
This location is convenient off I26 just outside Asheville. We visited the Biltmore (which was the highlight of our trip), I suggest buying a ticket after 3pm and visit for a bit and return on your same ticket for the next day. I definatly takes more than one day to see it all. This location is also convenient to Chimney Rock and many more attractions. The hotel has typed up direction to the different locations, and if they don't have them they will draw them on one of the local maps for you.
The room was nicely decorated with little touches of home, such as wreathes above the wooden headboards, wicker basket in bathroom with your toiletries. Beds were okay, the carpeting seemed new, the room darkening shades didn't quite stay shut very well, but this could have just been our room with tempermental curtains.
It's always helpful to have wireless internet. They also offer a computer with internet access in the front lobby.
There are plenty of locations within walking distance,(but we didn't walk, lol) to eat, plus there is a mall with a movie theater just across the street.
The outdoor pool is nice, but small.
As for the parking, this is the smallest parking lot I have ever seen for a three story hotel. I was called out of my room at nearly 10pm to move my car because i was on the line and there "were conplaints". I do not believe there are enough spaces to accomidate this hotel if they are at compacity, but I will be checking the number of spaces when I leave.....
Overall it was a nice stay.
Close to Biltmore
Stayed at this hotel 6/30-7/1/06. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only a few miles from Biltmore. Room was clean. Our room had TV, Microwave, Small Refrigerator, table and 2 chairs & coffee maker. They also have handicap accessible rooms. Had cookies and apples in the lobby for guests. Continental breakfast had fresh made waffles, cereal, danish, egg patties, biscuits & gravy & more. Special rate for over 50. Outdoor pool. Fast food close by but not much else to our liking for dining out. More chain restaurants closer to Biltmore. Very nice hotel and good value. Definately would stay there again.
Country Inns & Suites by Carlson
Clean.Hospitable.Yummy cookies at front desk. Tea & Coffee counter all day (free). Beds sooo comfy. Internet access from your room (fast conect) for free. Good breakfast selection. We will DEFINITELY go back. We chose this hotel based on the recommendations of other Trip Advisors/Travellers - THANK YOU!
My husband and I went to Asheville to see the Biltmore (2nd time)I really enjoyed this hotel, very clean, our room was large and very comfortable, great location for dining and shopping, the staff was very helpful. The free breakfast wasn't just a box of cereal and a small carton of milk, there was sausage, eggs, buscuits, bagels and you could make your own waffle if you wanted, not to mention fruit, cereals, juices. It was just a short drive to the Biltmore and they offer a Biltmore package that was a great value (tickets to the Biltmore and a bottle of the Biltmore wine)If we go back a 3rd time, We will stay there again.
Nice and Clean
We had a one bedroom whirlpool suite and it is very spacious and clean. The hotel overall is very clean and the breakfast is good. The cookies and apples in the louge are a nice touch.
Hard Beds and Indifferent Staff
This Place had the worst bed I've ever tried to sleep in...The staff wasn't really unfriendly, just seemed indifferent. At check-in, they charged me a different price from what my written confirmation said and when I questioned it, they said the direct reservation staff had quoted me the wrong price..Ended up with my confirmation price, but it was a hassle I didn't need..We inquired at the desk about a baseball game in the area and when we found the field, they had told us the wrong date and the game was the next day...
A great starting point for explorations south of the city - Biltmore Estate and Blue Ridge Parkway. Very convenient to the Asheville airport. The Internet price of $58.00 allowed us to save $ and stay at the Grove Park Inn during the middle of the week. We returned for our last 2 nights - again saving $ and making the drive to the airport very easy. I have stayed at 3 Country Inns & Suites and have always received a clean room and a better than average continental breakfast. The fresh baked cookies in the afternoon are a great touch too!!
Lovely place to stay at!
We stayed at this hotel in late October 2003 and it was great. the rooms are spacious and very clean; the staff is very helpful an attentive. Exclellent breakfast included!
Very convenient to most destinations in the Asheville area, this is a hotel we'll always return to with the greatest pleasure!
