“Horible dive of a place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2006

Ive stayed at maybe 150 hotels in my life, This was the 2nd worst ever. I often stay at modest priiced hotels so I am by no means a hotel snob.

Brown (dark brown) water came out of the shower and sink!!! Called front desk and they said they had just had some plumbing repairs and to run it for a while. SORRY...NOT ACCEPTABLE. (we actually took pictures of this) I was not brushing my teeth or showering with that. Shower was all coroded, hiir in the bed, the bed saw sagging in the center, Paint all over the carpet. The balcony had structural problems and was sagging dangerously. Front desk was rude. The reviews on yahoo say it has a nice view and was nice. WRITTEN BY MANAGERS I ASSUME. Its next to the highway and looks over a flea market. If it werent pre-paid and wasnt 12:00am when I got in I would have walked right out. I have a complaint filed with Days Inn corprte.

The bed was broken, the second flood walkway outside the rooms is at an angle and feels like it could collapse anytime. The ice machine didn't work right, the stairs were rusty , but painted over and looked unsafe, there was a strange odor in the room, and in the morning, there was no water. Couldn't brush my teeth, take a shower, or make my coffee. No wonder the rates were low, they don't have to pay the staff to do anything but remake the beds. If you're not concerned about quality, this is the place for you. On the other side, the breakfast was decent, but the sausage gravy needed some more sausage, and was runny.

Using the Roomsavers coupons, we stayed for $30 a night. We did not get up in time for the lil breakfast but we did have the free dinner, which was a gumbo with beans. It was a bit pot and was more like soup, but cannot complain in that it was free. They also had free coffee.

The motel has changed owners 3 times since the front desk person had been there. I bet it is difficult to get business way out in the country like that. I liked it way out there. It was beautiful!

A flea market was right across the street. The homes around that area do not look to be the wealthiest, but the people were friendly. We visited downtown Asheville and Biltmore. That hotel was great to relax and get away from the crowds---very quiet stay.

My husband REFUSES to stay at a Days Inn, except he did this time. Now he's considering that hotel chain again as a result of our stay.

The check in clerk wasn't real nice. The "deluxe continental breakfast" that was advertised consisted of coffee, juice, doughnuts, & toast only. The room was adequate but not real clean. You have to drive to the lobby where the continental breakfast is from your room since the rooms are up on a hill and the lobby is at the bottom of it. We found used towels behind the bathroom door when we checked in.
