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

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
