My night at the Bates Motel
Reviewed 19 october, 2020
My wife and I happen to book the Hotwire hot deal thinking it was a 2 1/2 star motel. When we pulled up the first thing that came out of both our mouth was holy cow this is the Bates Motel. When we checked in the first thing I was notified that we had a smoking room. Bad news for two of us that are on CPAP machines. During our stay there with a couple of bugs crawling around. Was not nice. We also had the experience of the smoke detector falling from the ceiling just missing my wife’s head by about a foot. The room is actually on a 5° slant. So when you try to wheel the chair around it actually pushes you back to the wall. There’s about a foot of space between the bed and the wall to get to the bathroom. You actually have to turn sideways to access the bathroom. Exposed wiring. Not good. This hotel is need of a desperate revamp. If not razed together. They need to put a new hotel on the property. It looks like something out of the 30s. I mean the 1830s. Duplex receptacles without covers on them what hazard this was. I already reported them to the Asheville fire department for numerous violations. As a to top it off I was charged $200 a night to stay in the sleaze hotel Hotwire gave me a $30 credit. Unfortunately I pick the highest vacancy rate season to go on this trip. I learn my lesson I will definitely be booking in advance and doing my research before hand.

Not a good place

I booked a room spur of the moment in spite of the bad reviews, thinking the motel would be a retro 60s kind of place, and glad to find a place that was OK with my dog. I got the last available room which was a smoking room, and the smell was terrible. I went to Lowe’s across the street and bought a bottle of extra strength Febreze but it didn’t help at all. The room was passably clean if you ignored the curly hairs in the bathroom. No cover on the light switch. But the worst thing was the odd and creepy vibe. Possibly the most depressing place I’ve ever stayed. Gave it two stars instead of one because the front desk guy was relatively polite, and I never felt truly unsafe.

My partner and I wanted cheap, clean, and simple. That's what this is. Very clean. Easy access to downtown. Park in front of your room. Single story old fashioned motel design. Responsive hosts who live on site.
Cool Old School Motor Lodge

Booked this hotel at the last minute to check out the Blue Ridge Parkway in peak season and got exactly what I expected. Single story motel built in the 50's (I would guess) car parked right in front of your room. It is not elegant or fancy but it was super roomy the beds were comfortable, the pillows were nice and it was really clean. The family that owns it was very pleasant. There is a train that runs behind the motel but it only came by in the day time and didn't wake me. It is in West Asheville so no walking downtown but I got to see a ton of cool stuff I had never seen on the drive to downtown which was about 10 mins or so. I would definitely go back.
