We recently stayed here after reading pretty much stellar reviews. The location is excellent and the price was good. However, the hotel itself needs some updating and a really good cleaning. Our room was a decent size but the furnishings and carpet were way overdue for replacements. I would say the breakfast was good and the lady running it worked... More

Checked in at almost midnight on a Thursday night, and the front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. We received two goodie bags upon checking in, similar to what you would receive when you stay in a block of rooms for a wedding - nice surprise! The room was clean and larger than expected with microwave and fridge. Booked... More

Nice and clean rooms with some room to move. Very nice staff. The only bad thing is if you get a room on the second floor. No Elevators in this hotel. If you have a lot of luggage and such it is a pain to get up to the second floor. Very good access to Carowinds.

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

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.
