Oyster Hotel Review

Quality Inn Asheville Downtown Tunnel Road


Stylish no-frills hotel good for budget-savvy travelers

This Super 8 isn't much to look at from the outside -- and to be clear, this is a fairly basic, no-frills property -- but for the price, guests get far more than many value hotels in the area. The hotel is set back from the road so it's quieter than you may expect from its location on such a busy street. The small lobby has a a computer station and check-in counter, and has a simple, modern design, with tiled floors and vibrantly patterned chairs and drapes. All rooms of this two-story building are accessed from outside, and a parking lot makes up most of the grounds. Guests here are mostly couples and families, though business and solo travelers are also drawn here by wallet-friendly rates. There is no elevator to rooms on the second floor, which guests with mobility issues should keep in mind.
