The rooms seemed okay. Smell like old water. People are everywhere, no parking spaces. NIGHT TIME!! DO NOT GO OUTSIDE. 1. THE MAN THAT WORKS OVER NIGHT IS VERY SCARY! He just stands there, staring. Creepy. 2. Seems to be a high drug area! I think the front desk man runs the whole deal! Just creepy!

Rooms smelled of smoke, the staff looked as if they were picked up from the side of the road, not profession looking at all, the wifi was not good at all, the pictures of the rooms on here do them no justice, rooms are very noisy,paid for few nights but decided to find another hotel

I have stayed in this hotel several times in the past I agree with the other reviews but now there's new owners and they are renovating the whole hotel.Evidently the people that wrote about the bad part of town are not from Gastonia. It's in a quiet part of town right across from a church. I would say that is... More

I drove up to the place and had a feeling it was going to be bad. I checked into my non-smoking room. The moment I walked in there was a waft of the stale smell of smoke, so it probably used to be a smoking room. No hangers, one of the towels had holes and stains on it, the wash... More

So I stayed there for 3 nights during the race weekend and you get what you pay for. I just stayed there during the night because I was gone during the day doing stuff. But the rooms was decent. The WIFI was spotty. The Air worked good. The only thing that I didn't like about was where the location of... More

Great helpful staff, clean room!! Cannot think of staying at any other budget friendly hotel in Gastonia. Had to stay here for a short two days when I was on a little family trip. The location was very close to interstate 85, and good places to eat around there as well.

Me and my family came in about 8pm, after a day of shopping and visiting the local museum. We were exhausted, and spent the night at the budget inn. The rooms were very clean with a microwave and refrigerator! Very convenient to a lot of food as well. When I visit my family in Charlotte, I will be staying here... More

We had an aweful experience the first night in Gastonia at a different hotel. When we walked through the door, we were relieved and we knew we could get a good nights rest. This hotel cost less and we got a lot more for our money. Staff was very friendly and the hotel was clean. Our rooms were very clean... More
