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. If you’re coming from the highway, take a left at the light past the entrance to Carowinds. If you’re headed in the direction to the highway, take a right at... More

My family was passing through on a long road trip and spent the night at this Quality Inn. We were pleased. Clean room, comfortable bed, good shower, nice staff, and some hot breakfast items. We had previously stayed at the Quality Inn at Rock Hill, and this one (Carowinds) was much nicer.
