      The location and breakfast.

      It was very noisy. Our room was next to the elevator and snack room so everytime someone used the elevator (which was constant) or went for ice we could hear it. The ice machine made a terrible, constant rumbling noise, guests running and screaming up and down the hallway; strange noises like staff moving furniture could be heard constantly. My family checked in at 8 P.M. and could not fall asleep due to all the noise. Finally, at 12:00 A.M. I got up to complain about the noise at reception. Luckily for us, there was a cancellation on the 4th floor. Even though we did not have the elevator or ice machine noise to deal with, we still heard noises from other rooms, like furniture being moved around, and very disrespectful guests running and screaming in the halls, very late into the night. I asked for compensation since it was a huge inconvenience to move my entire family in the middle of the night to another room, but was told since we booked through you they could not do anything for us except give us free breakfast, which I accepted. The manager on duty never got up to apologize for our situation, the rep had to go to her in her office which I could see from the lobby to tell her of our situation, which I thought was in bad taste and very unprofessional. I will never stay at this hotel again or book through Bookings.com because of the hotel not being able to help us because of us booking through you. Thanks.

      Check in was terrible. Very disorganized. Lines of people in the lobby all waiting a turn at the front desk. This despite the fact that many were Priority Club members.

      Price was far above quality. Food was poor.

      Tennis and workout facilities were excellent. Food was excellent. We purchased breakfast when we booked the room and the buffet was very good. Without that I believe it would have been costly.

      The toilet paper was a very cheap quality. I was surprised because everything else was excellent quality. No exhust fan in bathroom - mirrows steamed up.

      Throughout our stay, I described the Crowne Plaza as a resort for middle- class folks. It is not fancy, but the facilities are terrific. The spa and workout facility are remarkable (a full gym, three pools, a spa). The tennis courts (indoor and outdoor) are really good. The drive into Asheville is quick (10 minutes), yet the resort is an island unto itself (quiet, beautiful). Comfortable beds. Nice touches in the rooms (mini fridge, granite counters).

      Structurally, we were surprised by how basic the buildings are--and in need of updating. Could not find a single beverage machine that worked, and in the middle of the day, the resort provides no meal or beverage service at all. Seems a bit daft for a resort. A benefit concert went on under our window until 10pm. Seems we might have been warned about that before checking in. Staff all seemed a bit harried.
