I travel often with work so always looking for reasonably priced hotels. I decided on this clarion for a trip to Charlotte, it was close enough to the city to drive to my meeting no problem but convient to the interstate. Upon arrival and check in which was fast and easy, the manager Phyllis was working the front desk, she... More

For the price this hotel provides the basics, is clean & across the street from the amusement park. Although I only ranked the hotel with 3 stars what made our experience a 5 Star, was Miss Phyllis at the front desk (who was there at all hours). Every time I passed through the lobby, she was extremely busy and always... More

We booked this hotel via hotwire.com, never having stayed in this area previously. We committed to the online booking and of course then saw the hotel booked. Pictures looked very nice and we thought we were all set. The promotional pics must have been airbrushed or taken by glamor shots. This place is a DUMP. I understand they are under... More

Please tell me I read your review wrong and you were not suggesting you should get a discount for bringing your dog to the hotel. Of COURSE you should pay more for bringing a dog! And of COURSE you should get a "dog room"! Besides the sanitary and wear-and-tear issues that dogs present, they greatly inconvenience other hotel guests. (Yes,... More

The stay at the Clarion was like any other stay until after we left. My son left his prcious blanket behind in the room. Within 1-2 hours after we checked out we realized that he had left it and called the hotel. They could not locate the blanket. We drove home with a crying boy and I decided to call... More

Sending this as a correction to previous review... we would love to give them a negative review... but that option is not available. Bit several times by bed bugs, negative and unresponsive staff. We had to find a local friend 3am just to get safe sleep. Hotel has been a 1-star for over a decade but somehow they are 3-star.... More

This is not a smoke-free hotel. It smells like cigarettes. If you are fine with that, your set. The staff was friendly. The beds were clean, room was in good condition. The A/C was not cooling very much. It was a bit warm in the room. The hotel is right across the street from Carowinds.

We chose this hotel because the other 3 around it had people hanging around in the parking lot, and it made me uncomfortable. Pleasantly surprised when we got to the room. New furniture and a very comfortable bed. New vanity in bathroom. Looks like they are remodeling the whole place. New carpet through out the whole hotel. Staff was very... More

Upon arrival, the hotel appeared to be in good condition; so we booked the suite on the 11th floor....when we got on the elevator, the smell of smoke in the elevator was almost unbearable. In addition, the suite (room) was so old and run down- that I/we immediately regret booking a room there. In the future, this hotel will NOT... More
