We were passing through and needed a nice clean room for the night. This was a nice suite with a full kitchen, nice couch and a very comfortable bed. Front desk staff was very kind and helpful. Would defiantly stay here again.

We have spent Coca Cola 600 NASCAR weekend here for a number of years. Jason and his staff are always accommodating regardless of the time of day or night that we arrive. Two bedroom suites have been terrific and the kitchen has been perfect for our needs. It has been good on our morning to leave for our 11 hour... More

We stumbled onto this hotel and what a find! There was a free happy hour which was great. And the breakfast was wonderful too - lots of options to please everyone. Nikki at the front desk is a gem! She was so helpful and so sweet. We will certainly be staying here again!

I arrived late and hungry one night and wanted some fresh fruit desperately so the gentleman at the front desk opened up the breakfast area to give me a few oranges. It was so thoughtful and appreciated. The room was huge and clean. The location was so convenient to UNC Charlotte as I was there for graduation and there was... More

I stayed here as a guest of a major bank. I found the corporate rate unbelievable reasonable. The room was clean and spacious with a little kitchenette and workspace.
