We arrived at the hotel, and once we checked in, with a very friendly, customer centric guest services employee, the great part of our experience was basically over. When we left the lobby, heading towards the elevator, there was the overwhelming stench of Marijuana permeating the air. Now mind you, this is my kids' spring break...this was definitely not how...

When we went to check in, they were having a party in the Mexican Restaurant! You could barely hear the clerk as the music was blasting. Anyways, it was party time at the Clarion. Even though we were on the 11th floor, the top, you could hear the party and everyone on our floor was partying. The place looked like... More

We were having our carpet done and decided to get a room for a day. I went on the Choice hotels website and got a suite at this particular Clairon for an unbelievable low price and since we are a family of five the suite made since. When I entered the lobby it was very clean and all though it... More

Overall I just needed a warm bed and hot shower. The staff was super friendly and nice, But the room was horrible. 2 outlets were broken couldn't plug up the coffee pot, which I realized was not clear. I have 2 beds one was dirty, crumbs in the bed. All I can say you get what you pay for.

I spent one week at the Clarion hotel in Ft. Mill, S.C and I wanted to say how amazing my experience was while staying there. What an awesome staff that works there especially the General Manager Phyliss Graham. One day she was cleaning the side entrance from the construction guys, just a person that jumps in where ever she is... More

Clean enough and inexpensive so that's something. Renovations quite significant and the public areas are modern and very nice. Service at front desk was friendly and prompt. The rooms themselves are ok but could use some more upgrading - maybe that is coming. Overall ok and better than expected based on other reviews.

I stayed here for one night in September 2014 and it was okay at best, which was fine for the purposes of my trip. They had a hold on my card for the hotel stay, which was fine of course, the problem is apparently the hold was released at some point and they just processed the payment on December 10th,... More

I have stayed at multiple hotels in the area and this is by far the best. Shelly and the manager Phyllis are the best around. If your staying for one night or a week, clarion hotel at Carowinds is the place to be.

The old adage "You get what you pay for" comes to mind, but I would have expected more for what I did pay. I made the mistake of not reading the reviews before I booked because it was a last minute trip planned to Carowinds for Halloween. The pictures on the hotel website made this place look great and I... More
