When I came in, I told myself I could handle it for one night but when i went to get in the shower there was black hair everywhere! The room Is very dim and although it...

When we first walked in we were greeted by a wonderful outgoing Counter Agent, she checked us in. Once to our room we noticed our refrigerator wasn't working they sent up the maintenance man to look at it and he fixed it and was very pleasant. I would recommend others to stay here if in the area. The hotel is...

They advertised free breakfast, a gameroom and a business area. The computers were both messed up, one you couldn't even get on. Only paid breakfast and no game room. When I brought up some concerns to the woman at the front staff, she deflected everything I said and pushed me away. She did not want to hear it, and denied...

This hotel has been updated and was modern looking. The room was overall clean and the bed was comfy. The bathroom had some chipped tile. But, I would definitely stay here again! And its directly across the street from Carowinds!

Traveling group of 10, 7 adults and 3 children under 10. Reserved the Presidential Suite ( 2 bedrooms, sitting room/full kitchen) and a Queen suite (1 bedroom, sitting room/ full kitchen) for 3 nights. I had read the reviews that were mixed but decided to take a chance because of the location . This is an older hotel and the...

We have stayed here numerous times and while it isn't the best, it seems better each time we stay. We only stay here, due to its convenient location, right across from Carowinds. The view from the balconies facing Carowinds is wonderful, especially at night when they do the firework show. The hallways sometimes smell like weed, due to the people...

Room was very nice, quick elevators. No morning papers, No breakfast. Lesser hotels include both papers, usually USA Today, plus at least a continental breakfast and most often a hot breakfast. Eggs, meats, waffles.

If you get a rate of $70 or less I would say go ahead and stay here. It would be a good deal and if you are going to Carowinds it may be worth saving some money to just tolerate this hotel for a night. I paid more than that and really wish I would have just paid a little...

The staff is very personable and friendly. I needed a room during spring break without reservation. What was I thinking? Not only did they find me a room but it was accommodating for my large family. We checked in and spent the day at Carowinds. The executive suite was comfortable for my family and can't wait for my next visit....

My son and I stayed for 2 nights while visiting Carowinds! The staff was very friendly, especially the manager, Phyllis. The room we had was on the 8th floor facing the park- my son (who is a "Coaster Enthusiast") was thrilled with our view of Fury and Intimidator! The room was clean, bed was comfortable and the bathroom had been...
