Before I Left the First Time, I Knew I'd Be Back

A travel blog entry by anngreen

My first trip to Europe was in 2012. It all started with my search for ancestors online. I didn't discover anyone new before we left. I wanted to see where my people came from. My mother's mother came from Priverno, a small town south of Rome; her father from Bueu, a small town on the west coast of Spain. My father's side came from eastern Austria/western Hungary. The first trip was very busy - we moved around too much. But we were happy ...

... on the way - too fast for a photo) and took the self guided tour through the 250 room mansion that was built in 1895. We were completely overwhelmed by the grandeur of this house. The house has an indoor glass domed winter garden in the entrance, a fully functional grand pipe organ in the dining room - one you would expect to see in a cathedral, magnificence and opulence everywhere.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn-Asheville Biltmore West

    Not a Westin . . . but the beds are almost there.

    from

    So, this Ramada is under some serious construction. It appears that everything is being redone. The room's have a very modern decor with extremely comfortable beds. The hallways are also very nice. As for the rest of the hotel. . not so much. The pool is actually in the lobby and it smells like chlorine as you walk in the door. The staff are not winning customer service awards but they are accomodating. The location is ideal for downtown, Biltmore and any of Asheville's outdoor activities. For the money, this hotel was on par.

    The best rooms in Asheville!

    from

    I have to say that this was one of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in. The rooms are so comfortable and welcoming, and the decor is gorgeous. We also ate dinner at the Ramada Plaza each night and the food was very good. They also had live entertainment one of the nights. We highly recommend this hotel for not only its rooms but also the friendly staff and great service.

    Finally Ramada's making the right move

    from

    The staff was very helpful and friendly and the food in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner was great, but it's the rooms are what I want to talk about, because I spent some time asking a lot of questions about the work going on at the property. The bottom line is that the rooms are dated, but, by the middle of July, they expect to have their new rooms ready to rent. And if you're willing to take a chance, you have to see this place. The owners were smart and put together a sample room and it is beautiful. It is obvious that they're putting in a lot of hard work to turn this place around, and from what I can tell, they're on their way. When I come back in August, I'll be staying here in one of those fabulous new rooms! And of course the indoor heated pool is great too!

    Worse than deplorable!

    from

    Yes, they are remodling, but they waited waaaay to long! There was rust in the room, scrathed up old furniture. Not only was the wall paper peeling badly in the room, but so was the wall! The carpet and bathroom floors were sticky. The bed and the couch in the room smelled musty and VERY uncomfortable. Feeling I was not a real picky person, I ignored the bad reviews. They are so true! Yes, the pictures of the lobby are grand, but walk down a very narrow hallway (carpet worn and smelly), and find your room, and it is very disappointing. They should close this place down until renovations are completed. Even then it is hard to believe they can change the structural problems. I have never been so disappointed and feel this hotel is misrepresenting themselves as a good place to stay. We paid $53.00 for a room, at a Ramada!, and yes, we figured out why when we got there. Got there too late to change hotels. Be prepared to stay on the first floor, because they are starting in the upper floors. There were old mattresses laying in the hallways. Hope they are not releasing asbestos particals as the hotel seems very old and outdated. They didn't ask us how we liked our stay, I guess they wouldn't ask anyone that question! It was horrible. I have to go back to that Asheville area again in a couple of weeks, and I will be looking for another place to stay!

    This Ramada is limited!

    from

    We spent one night in March 2005 at this Ramada in Asheville. The rate was quite low but I thought I was safe with the Ramada name. The hotel was very run-down and dirty. I don't consider myself picky, but I would not stay here again.

    Great accommodations!

    from

    I read the previous reviews before booking my reservation and am glad I did not pay too much attention. My stay over the long July 4, 2004 holiday weekend was fabulous!

    Website is misleading

    from

    Liked the website pics,looked nice, and said it had been renovated. If it had been I would hate to see what it looked like before. The tiles on the lobby ceiling were brown and looked like they would fall soon. The rooms were dark and the carpet was filthy. The hallway and elevator lobby carpets and walls looked even worse. The only redeeming thing about this place is the staff. They were very friendly which is suprising because they must get blessed out on a daily basis due to the condition of the place.

    Beware of the roof

    from

    I know several people who work there and they used to brag about how nice the place was, so I decided to try it. I have never in my life seen such a place. If you stay on the sixth floor watch out the roof has a tendency to leak. It was not a good experience.

    BEWARE Plus dirty

    from

    If I were Ramada I would be embarrassed to have this hotel list as a Ramada. The rooms and bathrooms of this otel need to be seriously updated. The bathrroms were filthy. There was nonskid in the tubs that had probably been there for 40 years - blakc instead of white. Floors were so dirty in bathrrom that your skin crawled.To top it off, I had a late checkout and went out to lunch. i arrived back and a maid was in my room and had opened all the Birthday presents and cards that were for my grandaughters birthday. Had the jewelry in her pocket and had the check hidden in a pizza box instead of turning them in to the front desk if she assumed we had checked. Stay clear of this place.
