Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Clean rooms are large and include microwaves, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers
  • Near I-40 and I-26 highways
  • Within a short drive of downtown and the Biltmore Estate
  • Beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains from some rooms and the gazebo on the grounds
  • Free hot breakfast buffet, coffee, and chocolate chip cookies
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Business and fitness centers
  • Laundry facility on-site

Cons

  • Some rooms by the stairwells, doors, and ice machine are very noisy
  • Pool is small
  • Only a few chain restaurants are within walking distance

Bottom Line

The mid-range Country Inn & Suites Asheville West is near highways and within a short drive of downtown and attractions. It delivers all the expected chain brand amenities (free Wi-Fi, mini-fridges, microwaves, free hot breakfast) and you can walk to few chain restaurants. Some rooms have views of the Blue Ridge Mountains while others suffer noise from hallway noise, but all are clean and homey. It's a great mid-range value -- rates tend to be more affordable than at sister property Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Asheville Downtown Tunnel Road. The neighboring Sleep Inn West can be cheaper but lacks the Country Inn's pool.

Scene

A slightly updated chain hotel

Lobby at the Country Inn & Suites Asheville West

A cozy fireplace and seating area, small computer work desk, low ceilings, and large neutral rugs make the lobby of the Country Inn & Suites Asheville West feel somewhat like home, but the design is relatively bland and average. The wooden gazebo on the grounds has decent views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and a free breakfast buffet includes both hot and cold items such as waffles, eggs, sausage and cereal. The dining room can be crowded in the mornings but overall the Country Inn & Suites Asheville West is low-key and a hotel typical of the brand.

Location

In a busy area, a short drive to downtown and attractions    

Map of Country Inn & Suites Asheville West

The Country Inn & Suites Asheville West is in a busy, more suburban section of the city, near the I-40 and I-26 highways, where chain restaurants are within walking distance. It's a 10-minute drive to the Biltmore Estate, a 10-minute drive to the U.S. Cellular Center, a 12-minute drive to downtown Asheville, and a 20-minute drive to the airport. Many hiking trails are also within an easy drive. 

Rooms

Clean and chain-like, with mini-fridges, microwaves, and coffeemakers    

The Double Queen Room at the Country Inn & Suites Asheville West

Rooms have an earthy color palette of brown, green, and beach, as well as chain-like dark wood furniture with a traditional look. Amenities include mini-fridges, microwaves, coffeemakers, 32-inch flat-screen TVs, and radio alarm clocks. Serta Perfect Sleeper mattresses and “Touch of Down” pillows receive mixed reviews, but families and business travelers may appreciate the ample square footage in the Extended Stay Suite (which also has a kitchenette) and One-Bedroom Suite. Bathrooms typically have shower/tub combos, granite countertops, and hairdryers, but the Whirlpool Suite has a two-person whirlpool tub by the bed. Some rooms have views of the Blue Ridge Mountains while others get regular noise from stairwells, doors, and ice machines.

Features

Small pool, fitness and business centers, and laundry facilities

Meeting Rooms at the Country Inn & Suites Asheville West

The Country Inn & Suites Asheville West has small fitness and business centers, the former with a couple of treadmills and a weight machine, the latter with audiovisual devices, faxing, and copying for a fee. The pool is tiny, but free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel and a free "USA Today" paper is delivered each weekday. There is no on-site restaurant or bar (with the exception of a breakfast eating area) and many of the facilities close at 9 p.m. or midnight. The free breakfast includes hot items such as sausages and eggs.
