Jason and Nathan were always a pleasure to speak with and were helpful when trying to figure out things to do/places to eat in the area. Definitely great customer service from them at the Crowne Plaza.

Stayed for three weeks and thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and the hospitality. Jason and Nathan were incredibly helpful with all of my needs. Breakfast buffet exceeded expectations. I would stay here again for travel in the hickory or lenior area.

Although I did not have time to spend in the hotel, I slept quite well in the nights and my bed had always been tidied. However, the cleaning staff were more into leaving their hair on bathroom floor than were into cleaning it. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Jason and Nathan made us feel more comfortable... More

After being in the hotel for not one, not two, but three weeks, I got to know that Jason and Nathan were helpful. I especially enjoyed the breakfast provided in the morning as well as how polite everyone I encountered was.

This hotel has just what you need, small gym, pool area, decent size rooms and bathrooms, TV, etc. Breakfast buffet is okay. Mostly great service at the desk; especially exceptional are Jason and Nathan. Wake-up calls on time (even at 3:45am!) and very thorough housekeeping. Easy commute to Lenoir from here.

The staff was phenomenal and always willing to go out of their way to offer advice about local restaurants or activities. We stayed for 3 weeks and Jason, Nathan, and Marsha were especially helpful throughout our time there and made it feel like home.

I recently planned/coordinated a 2-day event for about 60 people at this hotel. Cindy Beason was very helpful with planning the event (I had never done it before) including meals, table setup, etc. Lisa Brooks and Lori Hodges were amazing during the event. They were very attentive to our needs and very patient with changes we requested during the event.... More

My business organization had a two-day event at this hotel for 60 participants which included meals, meeting rooms, and lodging. The event staff were exceptional in making the advanced arrangements, and helping us deal with changing requirements that emerged during the course of the event as well. I would recommend this hotel for business events of this nature.

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful, however, this is the worst 2 nights of sleep I've had at a hotel. I traveled for business and was in meetings at my client's location for all 3 shifts over 3 days. I needed to take midday naps for about 4 hours, and... More
