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

Entire hotel, including rooms, smells of cigarettes. Elevator buttons are grimy and the floor is blackened with filth. There was a hole in my shower wall and mold was growing out of it. Front desk told me breakfast started at 630. It actually started at 730...Not useful for business travelers. My non-pet friendly room smelled like cat pee. Refrigerator didn't... More

Upon checking in the staff were acting as though guest were a bother to them. Once we finally got into our room we had no trash can, no refrigerator, no microwave and the bathroom door was hanging by one hinge and tore up on the bottom. The "balcony" was terrible, literally no room to move for fear of falling off,... More

My family stayed at the Clarion in a pinch as we were waiting for our house to close. Throughout the whole stay, the front desk staff was especially gracious and accommodating to us, despite our uncertainty regarding our length of stay and changing circumstances. Phyllis, Josh, and Shelley provided a hospitable welcome to the area; we decided if everyone in... More

My buddy and I stayed here in a pinch while our rental property was getting ready. We met the management early on, Phyllis and Susan. They took excellent care of us the entire time. Even each staff member, down to their maintenance man were a pleasure to deal with. The property was clean, and had excellent location to almost everywhere... More

Have used this hotel several times in the past, but this was the last time. Room was ok. Acceptable cleanliness. But still a bit disheveled. The big problem is the place is dirty on the ground floor. Step out of the elevator and the place reeks. The elevator cannot have been cleaned in months. The carpet is filthy and there... More

After checking in and heading up to my floor I noticed trash in the hallway and in my room the trash was not taken out what a wonderful first thing to see when you first walk into your hotel room. Overall cleanliness is horrible
