Not a famiy friendly pleace. Bad neighborhood. Across the street is a Gentlemans club. Pool was closed and green, because there is a crack and it needed fixed. Room was not cleaned and smelled bad. Was in a smoke free room, but the neighbors were smoking right outside the room.

The woodland in is an excellent hotel to stop and stay at the rooms are clean.The rooms are also spacious while having some of the best customer service reps. Around.The convenience of having a number of upscale nice places to dine in and eat near by makes it all the more better

Friendly staff, clean rooms, and convenient location. The rates were the best in the area. Definitely will stay again when in Charlotte. I liked the 24 hour staff on duty. It made me feel secure. This hotel has made changes from my previous stays for the better. I recommend it if you want that home away from home feel.

I was not very impressed with my stay there because of how dirty and run-down the motel was. I went there for a job interview and this location was close to where I would be interviewing. I had requested a non-smoking room but the cigarette smoke smell was present. Just everything about this place was very scary, even those individuals... More

This is a run-down, dirty dump. The clientele are the drug dealers, prostitutes and pimps whose business is related to the strip club NEXT DOOR TO THIS CESSPOOL. The parking lot fills up at night with loud, drunk, scary people, laughing, screaming, blowing their vehicle horns and scattering garbage everywhere. The rooms are dirty: peeling wallpaper, badly re-painted bathrooms, dingy... More

Stayed here on a week long paint job out of town. I selected the hotel because of its location/price and wasn't disappointed. Less than a mile to interstate 77 was helpful getting to my jobs on time. Our room was spacious and comfortable, and the free WIFI had a strong signal. The free breakfast was okay but there was an... More
