Front desk above and beyond expectations. Great greeting and great service! Rooms are spacious and very clean. Bedding is soft and comfortable, pillows await a great nights sleep. Bathroom and amenities as expected. Overall experience great. Try the breakfast buffet, cannot be beat for $10 and sometimes included with your rate!

I am currently sitting in this hotel as I type. It is awful. Extremely moldy in my room, which has caused some sort of respiratory infection. Bed is comfortable, but that's the only good thing. Request an interior room if at all possible. I'm so thankful this is my last night!!

I was in an exterior room facing the highway. The traffic was extremely noisy all night long. Service was good. Polite employees. The bed was comfortable, however, the room smelled musty and damp, kind of like a moldy basement.

We spent a Friday night there and I was underwhelmed. Yes...clean beds and a clean bathroom but our room was facing a major road--practically on the road! It was ridiculously noisy! You could hear trucks braking...beeping into the wee hours. I was too tired to move rooms with my young sons and husband. I regret now not doing so. If... More

Thank you momontheloose for taking the time to post your review. The traffic noise is a challenge we face on the weekends when our hotel has high occupancy. I apologize for any inconvenience it caused during your stay. If you are in the Hickory area again we will designate your room to an interior room away from noise. Thanks again... More

We stayed here during a business conference. The rooms were dated but comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is great...right off of I-40 and close to major shopping areas. Business center needs to update functions and programs. No flash player. The conference was well run and staff was prepared for us. Bathrooms could've been cleaner but bed... More

Everyone was really polite and nice. The room was perfect and comfortable! I slept great and had no problem with the internet connection. The breakfast was tasty too. There are tons of great restaurants close by. I would stay here again.

A special thanks to Jason Coleman and Granny Mabel for making our golf trip enjoyable. These two employees catered to our needs and were very pleasant to be around.

Lisa and Brittany were so nice and provided top notch service. I would definetly come back. Brittany never let us run out of drink and was very courteous. Lisa was a very professional. I think your very lucky to have both as employees.

My wife and I stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Hickory, NC for 2 days. As we didn't rent a car, we used the hotel shuttle van, whose service was impeccable: friendly and on-time. We loved their breakfasts and very friendly staff, who advised us on superb restaurants in the area.
