I have stayed here twice now because I travel a long way to see my friend ever so often. The staff has been very kind to me each time I visit. They let me stay even though I am not yet 21, which is a big deal to me since most all hotels do not let you check in unless... More

This place used to be a decent value hotel a couple years ago, but it is now overrun with roaches and boasts the worst customer service I've ever experienced. I visit Charlotte often, and this used to be my go to cheap hotel. However the past two visits were horrible. Time before last 2 baby roaches crawled out of my... More

This place is full of strange smells thugs and bed bugs..you can not get to your vehicle without walking through a group of suspect looking people. I had to sleep sitting up fully clothed just to be comfortable the best thing about this hotel is the check out....

Spent 1 night Sat.,3/25 and that was enough! Was awakened at 5:30am by the gang bang going on in the room next door. Finally at 8:00am, we checked out.Didn't shower first either. After 2-3 hours of "live entertainment", that was it! Spend a few more dollars and go farther east on Indepence Dr. It's worth it! Jen

Surprisingly the hotel is very clean and the quality of room can compare to 3 stars hotel, outside the building it might not look too attractive but really can't judge a book by its cover. The hotel is only 10 mins drive to uptown Charlotte and across is a vegan restaurant, that make it even better.

I have stayed in this green hotel several times when I travelled to Charlotte since 2009. It was clean and nice. I like it especially it was fully green - even the shampoo and bath gel they provided. The staff was friendly and helpful. I can see that they have been improving through these years.

In the first night I stayed in this hotel, the cold water faucet on my shower didn't work so only scalding hot water came out, water poured out of the ceiling when the person in the room above showered, the refrigerator leaked foul smelling water all over the floor and the wifi and TV didn't work properly. It actually got... More

This truly has been the most unpleasant hotel stay I have ever experienced. From the stench in the lobby, to the urine smell in the elevators, to the seedy guests walking around shirtless and the disgusting comments made by them to other hotel guests. The rooms were in such bad conditionl the walls were peeling, the smell was unbearable, the... More
