Quality Inn & Suites Biltmore East
Travel Blogs from Asheville
Today we headed to the Biltmore Estate for a tour of this beautiful castle-like home for George Vnderbilt built in 1895. We spent about 4 hours touring the house, gardens and winery.
From there we drove to the Visitors Information Center where we boarded a trolley to take us on a tour of Asheville and all the sights downtown and around …
The last time I visited Yosemite Valley in California the gentle rains had just stopped. The sun was glistening off the dome and a colorful rainbow arched over the horizon. This was nature in its very best form and its splendor made our trip to this national park truly memorable.

Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Inn & Suites Biltmore East Asheville
Clean but small.....
The Quality Inn and Suites Biltmore East was extremely clean and the breakfast was adequate: however, the room was very small. Rooms should not be advertised as suites.....misleading when you walk into the small room and hardly have space to place a suitcase.
Adequate but far from great.
The room and general upkeep were okay. The pool was very small and some of the parking spots were sharply inclined. The microwave timer alarm went off in the middle of every night, even though we had not set the timer or even used the microwave. The desk staff seemed to be familiar with this problem, but were clueless about how to stop it.
A convenient location and really good hot continental breakfast didn't quite make up for the disappointment with the motel itself. It must have earned its three diamonds from the breakfast alone. We chose this motel on the basis of the AAA rating and the Asheville Visitor's Guide description, and were very disappointed generally. All rooms are outside access only, with no elevator to the upper floors. Our room, though clean, was sparsely furnished but quite cramped nevertheless. Not much space to even move around. Upon arrival, we found the sink stopper stuck in the closed position. Later, the smoke detector kept going off. We were told by the front desk to remove the battery and they would replace it the next day. They didn't. The air conditioner disturbed our sleep because of its noise. We came back from a day of sightseeing to find that Housekeeping had neglected to lock the door, and on another day we found the bed pillows on the floor. On the plus side, access to downtown Asheville, I40 and I240 is easy. There's a microwave and minifridge in the room and, as mentioned earlier, the complimentary breakfast was super - included hot sausage, biscuits and fresh-made, real waffles. We are experienced travelers who really goofed with this one. All-in-all, not good value for the money we paid.
We stayed at the Quality Inn in June, 2005. After reading the glowing reviews, we wanted to check it out for ourselves, and we were not disappointed! The motel is relatively new, so everything was in good working order. The room is spacious, and the bed was comfortable. There are many good restaurants located nearby. The place was packed, but we were never disturbed by noise. We agree with the other reviews---this is a great place to stay!!
Very Clean, Otherwise Average
Clean and convenient for an overnight stop (just off I-40, with lots of chain restaurants nearby). The bed was comfy, and the bathroom very big, but the rooms are small (maybe they should have made the bathrooms smaller and the bedrooms bigger?). Problematic parking due to lots of people with trailers taking up more than several spots at a time. The breakfast was basically non-existent. For a price of under $70, I'd stay again on my way to/from somewhere else.
A SUPER CLEAN HOTEL
We stopped in on our way to Myrtle Beach, and this hotel is terrific. It is a tremendous value and the breakfast includes free sausage, eggs, waffles, biscuits, gravy and so much more. Free internet access. An unbeatable mountain view combined with whirlpools make it an original boutique hotel. It is brand new and it shows, super clean, and we will be back.
Won't Go Back Again
The best thing I can say is that it was newly remodeled and very clean. Our room was the smallest I've ever stayed in, the bed was uncomfortable and the free breakfast was not worth the effort. The line was long, and then you had nowhere to sit because there were only a few small tables.
Nice little place
Stayed one night in November. Rooms were nice and clean with coffeemakers, microwaves and refrigerators. Rooms seemed a little cramped, though. Nice breakfast bar with make-your-own waffles, eggs, sausage, biscuits and more. Free high-speed Internet in all rooms, but it's wired (as opposed to WiFi) and you need to bring your own network cable, though they had one for me to borrow. Good rates available from rest-stop coupon books and online. Not far from Biltmore. Nearby restaurant selection limited. Right across I-40 from "The Cove" (Billy Graham Association).
My Family and I just returned from a trip to see the Biltmore. Wanted to comment on our stay at Quality Inn & Suites. VERY CLEAN. We paid $47 a night there, and we're a little wary of what the room might look like. There were two phones in our room, a writing desk, a bench, microwave, refrigerator, good size tv, and two VERY comfortable queen size beds. The bathrooms are of good size and very clean. The complimentary breakfast in the morning does not only include the average cereal, pastries, but also HOT items such as waffles, biscuits and gravy, and sausage. We were very pleased with this hotel, and you can't be the PRICE!
This motel has been recently remodeled and is comfortable and conveniently located. It has a small refrigerator and a microwave oven in the room, an excercise room and offers free hot breakfast.
We stayed here because we were fleeing a hurricane and found the reasonable price made it a great deal.
