Bottom Line

This 56-room Country Inn & Suite outpost is a mid-range hotel offering spacious rooms with microwaves and mini-fridges. It's especially well-suited for families who need extra space for the kids and there's an outdoor pool to keep them occupied should there be a bit of downtime. There are a good number of freebies here including breakfast, cookies and coffee in the lobby, plus parking, a book library, and Wi-Fi. The hotel is convenient to suburban delights like an outlet shopping mall and chain restaurants, but downtown Asheville will take at least 10 minutes to reach by car.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Family-friendly hotel with welcoming front porch and lobby

This family-friendly hotel is a typical Country Inn & Suites, with a welcoming front porch with cushioned rocking chairs, a wicker sofa, and hanging plant baskets. The lobby is cozy and homey, with free chocolate chip cookies, apples, and coffee available around the clock. A seating area with a sofa and lounge chairs provides a nice spot for guests to gather in front of the fireplace and live plants enhance the home-like atmosphere. Families tend to hang out at the little outdoor pool when the weather is good, and plenty of couples make their way to this hotel as well. 

Location

Easy interstate access near outlet mall, a 10-minute drive to downtown Asheville

The hotel is located off Interstate 26, near Interstate 40, and across the road from the Asheville Outlets. There are plenty of fast food chains and other eateries close by, and it's right next door to a grocery store and pharmacy. Attractions that are a 10-minute drive away include the lavish Biltmore Estate and historic Biltmore Village, North Carolina Arboretum, and downtown Asheville. The scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, Grove Park Inn, and UNC Asheville are all about 15 minutes away, and Asheville Regional Airport is about 20 minutes from the hotel. For excellent hiking and nature trails, Great Smoky Mountains National Park entrance at Cherokee is just over an hour away by car. 

Rooms

Spacious rooms plus suites with sofa beds, some with hot tubs

The spacious rooms have tasteful decor with dark wood furnishings and earth-tone color schemes accented by pops of red. Beds have white comforters and sharp, dark wood headboards, and simple landscape prints hang on the stylish mustard brown accent wall. Brown patterned carpets cover the floors and all rooms have desks with plush leather business chairs. Each room has air-conditioning, a microwave, mini-fridge, coffeemaker, 40-inch flat-screen TV, and free Wi-Fi. Suites have a bedroom with a king or two queen beds and a separate living area with a sofa bed. Some suites have a two-person hot tub in the bathroom, though in some cases the hot tub is right in the living area. Bathrooms are spacious and standard, with tiled floors and large granite vanities plus shower/tub combos in most rooms. Toiletries are provided. Some guests have noted noise from the busy road outside

Features

Small outdoor pool, free breakfast, and a fitness center

There is an outdoor pool between the building and the parking lot, but it is small and the four lounge chairs barely fit on the side deck. Kids don't seem to mind its limitations, though, and it's a fine enough place to cool off in the summer. The free Be Our Guest Breakfast offers eggs, bacon, oatmeal, omelets, waffles, yogurt, cereal, breads, juices, and coffee. Free coffee and chocolate chip cookies are available in the lobby 24/7. The Read It and Return Lending Library features a variety of books for all ages. The computer station has a printer and fax machine available for guests at all hours. The small fitness center has a treadmill, elliptical machine, stationary bike, a weight machine, and flat-screen TV. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel, and parking is also free, though RVs and trucks are not allowed.
