We stayed for 2 nights and it was not a pleasant experience for us. At first, we did not have any towels in our room. We had to go downstairs to get some, but not a big deal. Next, we noticed there was no shower curtain in our room, and had to get that as well. Second night we went... More

This hotel is great. Right across the street from Carowinds, you can see and here people screaming on the rides. The hot breakfast is pretty good. Clean rooms and bathrooms and the manager is SO NICE! Stay here if you can! I will remember this hotel when I come back to Carowinds.

I was very happy with this place...it is literally...directly in front of Carowinds...and it had a solid breakfast...to get one ready for a day at the park. It was clean and comfortable...The pool was tiny, but really...we were there to go to the park...and this place was perfect for that.

This review is to extol the excellence in service of Devon, who provided exceptional kindness and professionalism. After her original accommodations were adjusted from providing proper accessibility for my dad who has difficulty from strokes, Devon was a blessing in rectifying the situation. My parents and my wife and I are very grateful and satisfied!!

It's SC people, it does get hot in April! We regret that we missed breakfast; I believe it was taken up early. Anyway, we did get... More

It was a good nights rest being we arrived at 2:30 am but we could hear everything that was going on in the hall ways around 7:30 am. The breakfast was good. I would stay here again. House keeping needs to vaccun below the head boards on the box spring.

We visited in March of 2015 and were pleasantly surprised at this little hotel. It’s hard to find if you’re using GPS, so ignore it once you’ve left the highway.
