    Near hiking trails

    The hotel is just a mile or two from some great hiking trails. It also is not far from downtown. The staff is friendly. Room was fresh, nicely decorated and clean.

    Perfect package

    This hotel seems tucked away from the world up on a hill East of town but offers great location just 1 mile from all the conveniences you may need. Rooms are nicely remodeled and the property is quiet. Was able to get great rest. Lobby is very attractive with fire place and restaurant. Great areas all around the hotel to take your pet. Easy plentiful parking. Highly recommend. Everything was great except the shower water pressure was a little weak for our taste.

    2 dogs & me, and a very short stay make for an amazing review! Barely any noise, room right next to the door, exactly what we needed.

    Holiday Inn East Tunnel Rd., Asheville NC

    This was one of the nicest hotels I’ve been in for quite a while. Very friendly and welcoming at the front desk and they were ready with a room for Bella and I. Very convenient and they provided bags and trash cans in a pet area.

    Clean rooms and friendly staff. The walking trail is short but a bonus. The restaurant was efficient with good food and drinks. We would definitely stay here again.

    Friendly Service

    We just did a quick overnight at this hotel. We were taken care of by Mark and Tonya. Mark made sure we had a nice room and Tonya made sure we had a fast check out, which we actually didn't have anything to do. The room was nice. I would recommend it.

    Great place all around!

    Everyone was lovely and so nice to Max my dog. Above and beyond helpful. The trail for dogs was perfect after a long drive…. My dog enjoyed it thoroughly! I will definitely stay there the next time I drive through! Oh and the food in the restaurant was great!

    Awesome Snowtrip

    I booked the hotel based on previous reviews and they did not disappoint. Great location! We drove in just for the winter storm and some fun in the snow. Check in was seamless, room was ready when we arrived. I love that they put us on the first floor so we had easy access for potty breaks. Tracker LOVED the hiking trail right behind the hotel and had a blast exploring the grounds and area in the snow. Highly recommend, we will be back for hiking this spring/summer.

    Fido Friendly🐶

    Loved the hotel…good location, great staff, very clean and of course very Fido friendly. The grounds of the hotel are landscaped beautifully and also offers a path created through the woods for walking your woofie along with pick up bags and waste receptacles. The hotel has a lovely lobby with comfortable seating and a large stone fireplace. It also has a very good restaurant and cocktail bar which includes a choice of draft beers on tap. The decor of the inside of the hotel is done very tastefully and when I commented on it was told that the owners take pride in it and change it according to the different seasons.

    My only problem was with the check-in process. Originally the reservation was made through BringFido for a king, pet friendly room then was notified by email that it was changed to two queens which was not a problem. Upon check in at approximately the 3pm time was told because of shortage in staff our room would not be ready for awhile, that the hotel had been completely booked the day before and was told the only room available was a handicapped room. Explained that we had a standing reservation and was told that was a problem when reservations are made through secondary services like Expedia, etc. and possibly not be honored.

    Was very upset since we had driven two days to reach Asheville and had done quite a bit of research to make this reservation. After some discussion he did manage to come up with a double queen pet friendly room that was immediately available. Don’t know why that was not originally offered since that would not have caused undo stress during the check-in process. Other than this, our stay at this Holiday Inn was wonderful (as was the weather) and would highly recommend it.

    Amazing EVERYTHING

    We had a wonderful stay at the Holiday Inn Asheville East! From the minute we walked through the doors, we were welcomed and they seemed genuinely excited that we had our dog Gemma with us. One of the gentlemen (Thomas) asked if he could give her a treat and the other (Jack) said that the best part of his job is seeing all of the pets that people bring. Thomas remembered Gemma’s name and always had a treat for her. She got so excited every time she saw him! There is a short walking trail, but I only walked the first little bit of it.

    Thomas told us at check-in not to use it at night because there ARE bears (a mama and her cubs) and there was an incident not too long ago (a dog got aggressive and the bear went after the dog, the owner tried to save the dog… I can’t remember what happened beyond that. Our toddler distracted me!) My son and husband walked the trail (during the day) though and said it was nice. We were on the first floor which was really nice. The landscaping and decor were beautiful. And of course, the mountain view was gorgeous as well. Food and service in the restaurant were great. I do wish the hotel offered some kind of continental breakfast. I would 100% stay at this hotel again the next time we’re in Asheville.

    What a surprise!

    So impressed with Holiday Inn in Asheville, NC. Beautiful grounds, friendly staff, nicely appointed rooms to accommodate our pets and a good restaurant. We will return and if the other Holiday Inns are as nice, we will plan on staying.

    Great hotel for your fur baby

    It was very clean. The room were a good size. They have a nice trail behind the hotel to take your fur baby on a small hike and do their necessities. I will give it 5 bones

    Super Pet Friendly

    This hotel seems on the newer side. Beautiful wooded scenery with a short dog trail which I highly recommend doing. The staff were friendly and rooms very clean. The whole area seemed well cared for and ample green space for your pets to use the bathroom. If ever through the area again I would definitely stay here again.

    Best Hotel for Dogs EVER

    Gorgeous location, with beautiful surrounding areas for dog walks. The landscaping at Holiday Inn Asheville East is magnificent, with tons of colorful blooms. The room was spotless & beautifully detailed, the lobby is charming & homey, breakfast in the restaurant was delicious—but the dog walk behind the hotel is incredible! I’ve never seen anything like it at a hotel. Tree bark-covered winding pathways, shady leafy trees, various species of birds calling to one another

    Beautiful setting and very dog friendly!

    I chose to stay here based on the high reviews and the amenities provided for a dog travelers and I was not disappointed! The setting is beautiful, the dog walk can't be beat, the accommodations were comfortable, and the staff was very pleasant and accommodating. I wish I was not just passing through and could spend more time here and in the area. Plan to arrive while it is still light to enjoy the scenery and the dog walk.

    Great location!

    This was the best stop by far on a long and impromptu road trip with 2 large dogs this Spring from IL to GA. Hotel itself had a nice personality and Mountain View’s/decor. Green, peaceful surroundings including a true woodland walking trail built for dog walks on site. Lovely! Room was large, comfy, quiet and really, just perfect for us. Highly recommend. 🐾

    Very Nice!

    The Holiday Inn East Asheville treated us well. The room was nicer than I expected. The hotel has built walking trails on six acres of wooded property on the backside of the parking lot that makes it a really unique pet hotel! Further, the largest dog park in Asheville is just 5 minutes away. All in all, very nice stay.

    Not only was the staff awesome to us and our doggy. The hotel and grounds itself were very pet and guest friendly. It was very clean and our pup was welcomed throughout the hotel. We will definitely be staying here again!!!

    Excellent Stay

    Great hotel to stay with your dogs, but be aware if you are not booking direct that dogs are only allowed on the ground floor. I booked through BringFido and I got the option for a Mountain view Room and was charged in line with my options, but the hotel put us in their rooms for dog owners that do not have a Mountain view. The hotel did refund my dog fee because of this, but they didn't have to do that.

    Rooms were clean and great little dog areas to relieve them!

    Good first stop!

    My husband and I stopped here for the first leg of our trip to CA. The walking trail was really nice and our room was on the first floor close to the door. Only issue we had was that we couldn’t get a king bed room and our reservation was changed to 2 queens the day before.

    Great stay!!

    We stayed here based on reviews alone and it was completely worth it. Thomas the manager is so very friendly and also a military veteran and treated us very well. Rooms were nice and clean. But we went for the dogs. Dog trail, treats at check-in and they did not treat us like outcasts. We cant wait to go back.

    A fine, clean room. Best feature, though, was a hiking trail for walking dogs right off the parking lot into the wooded hillside.

    Great stay with my pup!

    This hotel was perfect for my pup. We used the walking trail in the back of the hotel every day for some quick walks. They even have three lit designated pet relief areas and waste bags, which was perfect when I ran out of my own. The hotel staff were really friendly and never made me feel like my pet did not need to be there. We ended up having to stay an extra night due to the unexpected weather and they were very accommodating. I would stay here again.

    Best Dog Walk Ever

    This is a great hotel for dogs. They have an entire wooded area with several paths just for dogs. It is decorated with birdhouses and wood sculptures so we humans can enjoy it, too. The rooms are clean, the staff is kind to dogs and give them treats. The “dog” rooms are on the first floor, close to everything. This is an award-winning hotel. The flowers (one of the owners is a master gardener) are lovely and the hotel is beautifully decorated. We stay there every year before Christmas to enjoy the Christmas decorations and sit in front of the big fire—with our dogs—and drink hot cocoa in the lobby. I truly hate hotels

    Holiday Inn Asheville Biltmore East

    This hotel was wonderful. You feel like you are in a 5* ski lodge.
    I booked through BringFido so I did not have the usual, "I hope this check in goes well" feeling. We were traveling with 2 dogs, one 40 pounds and one 65 pounds. If you want to leave the dogs in your room while you go out they must be left in kennels. We always travel with portable soft kennels so that was no problem. I think I remember reading on the pet agreement that they offer them at the hotel for a modest fee. The agreement also stated that if they received two phone calls concerning barking disturbance that they can charge your credit card up to $250. You will have to read that more closely for the details. I don't remember if that was only if a guest left due to barking or just two phone complaints. I thought this was fair due to the atmosphere of this upscale hotel. Pre training your dog to feel comfortable while being left in a soft kennel for a short while is good idea all around. They have a beautiful hiking trail right there on the grounds. Our room was really really nice!! Way more upscale compared to a La Quinta. The hotel itself also had a bar and restaurant. The charge for the dogswas $45 total added to the bill, not $45 per dog.

    Amazing Place To Stay With Your Pup

    My 65 pound boxer and I stayed here while we visited the Asheville area and loved the experience. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and welcoming to my very large pup. When we checked in, they gave us a floor on the first floor so that we would have to take the elevator and a pup magnet for the door so the staff knew you had a furry baby in the room with you. I noticed that most the rooms on the first floor had these pup magnets so there were plenty of other families staying there with their furry babies. The room was huge and had an area that had linoleum tile where I pup my pups water and food. The staff also told me there was a hiking path (about a quarter mile) for us to walk our pups..it was so nice...the ground has a path with wood chips so your pup won’t get muddy even if it rains. There’s also a fire hydrant, dog house, and swing along the path. I can’t believe the hotel put so much effort into creating a welcoming space for their furry guests. There’s also a small area out front that’s lite up really well in case your pup has to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. All and all, we were so pleased with the hotel and would recommend it to anyone passing through that area.

    Fantastic hotel, very dog friendly

    Updated and super clean family-friendly, & dog-friendly hotel. We were pleasantly surprised at just how nice it was, and how great the staff is. Rooms are comfortable, clean and contemporary. Our daughter and dog loved the nature trail behind the hotel.

    Great Place to Stay with a Pooch

    We so much enjoyed our stay in this hotel with our 95 pound dog. Our room was clean, comfortable, and appeared to have been very recently remodeled. We loved the day bed/sofa where we could watch tv and cuddle with our dog. The staff was friendly and accomodating. We got takeout to enjoy in our room one night from the hotel's restaurant and the food was very good. This hotel has a dog walking trail that is perfect for a quick morning or evening walk with the dog. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling with or without a dog.

    This Hotel accepts pets

    This hotel accepts pets but only on the first floor in a pet-friendly room.

    I am so pleased, and pleasantly surprised! The grounds are gorgeous, with a walking trail just for my two fur babies (be advised, no late night walks, BEARS live in Asheville) the rooms are clean, well attended, the staff is friendly and helpful (Toby took my reservation and Thomas checked us in). I have felt cared for and at home here, and at an extremely reasonable price. We stayed an extra day! We are close to Biltmore, and there is also a Waffle House at the bottom of the hill. I provide this review with a lifetime of Hospitality and Service experience. We have enjoyed an excellent stay here!
