Bottom Line

The 125-room Comfort Suites Outlet Center is a budget property situated right next to the Asheville Outlet Mall. It's a 15-minute drive from downtown and about 20 minutes from the Biltmore Estate, but there are several restaurants within walking distance. Rooms are basic, but clean, and come with flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, microwaves, and coffeemakers. Some have whirlpool tubs. A breakfast buffet with hot and cold items is free, as is parking and Wi-Fi. The outdoor pool is popular with the kids, and there's also a fitness center and coin-operated laundry room. Meeting space accommodates social and business gatherings. Travelers looking for a slightly more upmarket option in the area could check out the nearby Hampton Inn Asheville, but rates are higher.

Oyster Hotel Review

Comfort Suites Outlet Center

Scene

Typical chain hotel that's most popular with families and couples on a budget

Previously called the Comfort Suites Biltmore Square Mall, the Comfort Suites Outlet Center is a typical budget hotel. The front desk is immediately inside the sliding glass doors, and there's a mini-convenience store next to it that sells snacks and basic medicines. While there's a desk with computers and some armchairs, it's hardly the kind of place anyone would hang out. This area can get crowded at times as guests are waiting to check in and out. In fact, the hotel is mostly used as a cheap home base for commuters or those looking to explore the region. This hotel is popular with families and couples, as well as guests attending events in the meeting area.

Location

Located off I-26 next to outlet mall, 15-minute drive from downtown

Situated next to the Asheville Outlet Mall just off Interstate 26, this hotel shares a parking lot with the mall. A seafood restaurant is right next door, and there are several other eateries within walking distance, including fast food and fast casual options. The North Carolina Arboretum is a six-minute drive from the hotel. Downtown Asheville is about 15 minutes away by car, and the Biltmore Estate is about a 20-minute drive. The Blue Ridge Parkway is close by, and the Visitor Center is 14 minutes away by car. Plan on a 12-minute drive to reach Asheville Regional Airport.

Rooms

Clean rooms with flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, microwaves, and coffeemakers -- some with whirlpool tubs

Although all rooms are called suites, they're actually just standard hotel rooms with single king-size beds or two double beds, plus a sofa bed. Decor is a typical chain look, with medium-toned, clean-lined wood furniture, patterned blue carpeting, red bed runners atop white linens, and blue blackout drapes. Modern art hangs on the wall. It's all pleasant, if unmemorable. Amenities include flat-screen TVs with premium channels, mini-fridges, microwaves, and coffeemakers. Some rooms have whirlpool tubs in the living area. Bathrooms are basic, but clean, with shower/tub combos, hairdryers, and toiletries. Some rooms on the top floor have distant mountain views.
