Quaint and old fashioned, with small basic rooms. Very comfy and clean. They have good WiFi but they don’t provide TVs, coffee pots etc. Restaurant in the hotel serves a great dinner. If you don’t care about gadgets, and like historic properties with heart, you’ll love it.

We love the atmosphere, staff and location of this property and will always choose to stay here when needing a hotel in Black Mountain. Very accommodating staff and comfortable rooms. No elevator in some parts of hotel. And no tv in some rooms if that matters to you. Restaurant is not always open and has limited menu at times.

Pros: Hardwood floors, tile bathrooms, new fixtures, new bed, good AC
Cons: There was a continental breakfast and, although good, would've liked to have seen a few more non-sweet options.
Location: Downtown Black Mountain just a couple of blocks away
I didn't pay attention to the fact that there was no elevator and my room was in n the third floor but the stairs were manageable.

Decent little place to stay, pricey though

Decent little place to stay, a little pricey for the amount of amenities. Hard to get Wi-Fi in this building, even with several Wi-Fi or logins. Close to downtown Blackmountain, where there are a lot of shops and restaurants, about 20 minutes into Asheville. Clean little place, however for the price I probably would not stay there again.

Best kept secret!

This hotel is on the national registry of historic places. You are swiftly carried back in time to the 1920's upon checking in to the Monte Vista. The rooms are quaint but aptly appointed. I enjoyed just walking the halls. Mini refrigerators scattered throughout the hotel halls provide chilled bottled water for your complimentary enjoyment. Board games for a family night in are available for guests use. The family room with a large flat panel television and ( unstocked ) dry bar with a fireplace with beautiful mantle is a wonderful touch. We chose a room without a television. We felt this might be a risk as we have small children,I was mistaken! I briefly entertained the idea of ridding our own home of the wretched monstrosity. Briefly. We skipped the continental breakfast, but enjoyed lunch there during the afternoon. It was amazing. Our server was prompt and accommodating. The staff was wonderful! Caroline greeted us upon check-in and I felt so welcomed. After such a long car ride, our 2 yr old was ready to stroll and explore. Caroline made us feel like her personal guest. She was extremely kind, personable, and friendly to our toddler. Black Mountain is an adorable small town with a bustling walkable downtown, and the Monte Vista is just on the edge. You could leave out on foot to enjoy the sights & shops. The beauty is abundant as this quaint town is nestled among the NC mountains. It's such a picturesque setting. We will return, and are planning our next stay already.

Disappointed

Pros: Comfortable mattress, that's about it!
Cons: Thorough inspection of rooms, fixtures, etc. Better trained and more professional staff. More responsibility and attention from staff.
Location: Nice town for shopping, but they roll up the sidewalks at dusk. Couple good restaurants.
My husband and I wanted a quick weekend getaway and booked one night at the Monte Vista for a change of pace. Checked in at around 4pm on Saturday, November 21st. Nice lobby, but the only greeter was the resident cat and he/she was too busy grooming to check us in! After we inquired, a young lady finally came out to the lobby to check us in. She led us to room 208. This nice hotel has 3 floors and no elevator, so not for the faint of heart! Nice, spacious room, very comfortable mattress. Very quiet. NO TV in the room! When asked, we were told, there's one downstairs at the bar. Bottled water was provided, but NOT in the mini fridge in the room. Had to go out into the common (shared) hallway to retrieve it. No in-room coffee, either. Cute wet bar, but the faucet/handle was completely loose (which was repaired while we were out to dinner, after we brought it to a young man's attention). One of the worst issues was that we couldn't control the temperature in the room. When we arrived it was stifling HOT in the room. We tried to adjust the thermostat on the wall unit. After asking the maintenance man (same young man), he said we could not adjust it in the room. If we were too hot, we'd have to open the windows, as they controlled the heat/ac for the entire hotel. When we pointed out (with a flashlight) the tremendous MOLD issue in the vent of the room unit, he just casually excused it as "part of the losing battle with this older place"...
