We were not able to check in on arrival. The computer system was down. We had to wait about 45 minutes. The management told us that all Choice Hotels were having this problems. The hotel was a little dated. The room was okay. The location was ideal; close to Carowinds. The pool was closed at the time. The restaurant connected... More

I was questioning this hotel because of the negative reviews, but took the chance on it. I was not disappointed. We booked a two-room suite, which was on the 11th floor. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. Included a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, & kitchen sink, and a fold-out sofa bed in one room, and the bathroom and two bed set... More

Great price for a quick stop passing through. Hotel looks like it's undergoing renovations. (Trim isn't painted, exposed cords or wires in ice/vending area). Our room was semi clean, could've used a little extra attention. My bathroom floor hadn't been swept/moped. There was hairs and a razor shield behind the door. Also a used rag under the sink. The toilet... More

The Clarion at Carowinds, is a decent priced and very conveniently located hotel across from Carowinds park. The room was decent sized, and you couldn't ask for a better location. However, the room had a strong odor (musty, old age) and it was just of average comfort. The staff was present and responsive, but nothing special to comment on. They... More

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
