This is a very nice hotel. Breakfast was great. Lots of options!! The room was spacious. Beds were super soft. Staff was very nice and housekeeping is awesome!!! We definitely stay again!!! Only bad thing is that they don't have an elevator. But they only have two floors so it's not too bad!!6

Stayed here last night because of Tripadvisor recommendation. Very nice clean motel even if a bit old. Nicely remodeled with friendly staff and very good breakfast! Comfortable bed and nice new carpet. Bed comfortable and some new furnishings such as lights and TV. We never saw an elevator though so if you have mobility problems check with them before booking.... More

This hotel was clean, and conveniently located for Carowinds. The staff was so friendly and helpful. My ONLY complaint....no elevators! Breakfast was good, small area with tables. If there is a crowd (as there was on Sunday morning) it's a bit tight and you have to improvise and use your patience and manners in waiting. Other than that, it's a... More

Room was clean and spacious, complete with microwave and mini-fridge. Beds were very comfortable and we could not hear the traffic. Breakfast was good - the usual cereal, toast, waffles, yoghurt, fruit, juice, coffee. Other than the Cracker Barrel, Subway and one or two fast food joints, there are not many restaurants in close proximity. With very little traffic, it... More

This is one of the rare times when I thought Tripadvisor's reviews were rated way too high for what we experienced at this hotel. First the positives (1) It is convenient to Carowinds if you're just looking for someplace to stay while you visit the park (2) You can walk to Culver's, which has really good ice cream.

Have stayed a couple times on business trips. If you are looking for a clean, large room at a reasonable price, this is the place. As a Choice Privilege member they upgraded me to a Jacuzzi room both times. While I did not use the Jacuzzi, the upgrade is appreciated. The rooms are very clean and are comparable to rooms... More

No issues here. My wife and I were looking for something affordable and close to Carowinds. We spent two nights here. The room was clean, the halls were well maintained, and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was very decent as well. It's less than a mile away from Carowinds and easy to find off of a not-too-busy intersection... More

Hotel was difficult to get to as it is located in a very busy area and very close to the amusement park at Carowinds...probably a better choice for families wanting to attend the Park.
