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

I was traveling with a dog and required a pet room. It wasn't a trip that just included the dog, he had to be brought home from FL to CT. I wasn't given a discount, and I was charged extra for the dog, but given an inferior room. This isn't the first time this has happened with the Choice Hotel... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. It may look a little run down, but the rooms are nice and we had no problems here during our stay. We chose location b/c they are pet friendly and have a nice business park to walk your dogs! The room was clean and had a fridge and microwave. There is a fitness... More

New carpet in the hallways also. The manager was (Phyllis) was very professional and courteous, I would stay again without question.

This is the 1st time I have stayed here and just had to leave a review, albeit a rushed one. The customer service was so good, I actually commented the next morning that this is when customer service makes a difference and the reason why I have stayed here two times since. Phyllis and Susan have happened to be there... More
