9.4 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros:Nice accommodations, friendly staff, pet friendly, extremely convenient to restaurants and the Orange Peel music venue.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:Comfy beds. Spacious room and bathroom. If you option out of turn down service, you get a 5$ voucher to use in the bar. Awesome way to incorporate staying "green."
Cons:The shower could've used a keener eye during cleaning. But wasn't all too bad. The only issue I had was you could hear not only when a neighbor shut their door, but also the neighboring rooms when theit window blinds are open or shut.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Everything, no complaints.... Staff is great! Very helpful.
4.0 Mediocre
Pros:The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was nice and modern. Right in the heart of downtown Asheville with a nice view.
Cons:The room wasn't very clean. There were questionable spots on the bench that looked like bodily fluid (ew), and stains on the carpet. The room wasn't terribly quiet, and I probably wouldn't have stayed there if I knew they allowed full size dogs.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The room set up. The location. Comfort.
Cons:We only stayed one night. The light and fan in bathroom were on the same switch, Minor issue.
9.6 Excellent
Pros:The location, the in house bar, the roof top pool, balcony.
