Always accomadating to others no matter what it takes. Phyllis Graham is always there to help everyone make sure they are satisfied- day or night. Marinda has a pleasant attitude with great customer service skills.

Everyone needs to take a step back and think about what's important. When I stay at a hotel, I need 3 things: - Hot Shower - Air Conditioning - Good Night's Sleep All three of those things were achieved for less than what it cost us to visit Carowinds (which was the main reason for our trip). When we checked... More

Don't let this hotel's location right across the highway from Carowinds tempt you into staying here. The smell of the rooms and the air conditioner soaking the carpet were minor compared to what happened in the morning at 9am when the manager came out and yelled across the parking lot "You get off my property I'm calling the police!" Tried... More

Very upset with our stay The answer to everything from staff was sorry we are sold out. So we had to deal with the issues. We made our reservations 7- 10 days in advance online. We paid for 2 nights in a room with hair in the shower and other places in bathroom. Something very sticky on bed cover and... More

I have season passes for me and boyfriend. So we decided to stay at the clarion again. We walk in and Miranda remembers us and I love that! It makes you feel comfortable and like family! She asks what side do prefer to be on and of course she puts us on the the 10th floor facing carowinds(1015) is amazing!... More

Here's the email my wife wrote the GM: -- Dear General Manager, I am contacting you to make you aware of a situation that took place this past Thursday, July 23 at the Clarion Hotel in Fort Mill, NC. My husband and I were looking for lodging as we were headed to Southport, NC. It was getting late, and we... More

PROS: ● Really close to Carowinds. Not walkable due to a major highway in between, but only a 1 minute drive. ● Inexpensive ● Beds, linens, TV all fine. Not fancy, but fine. CONS: ● Roaches. I killed two roaches in the bathroom when we arrived. Then one night we saw one crawling on the nightstand between us. Not cool.... More

Check in 7:30pm Hotel is right across from Carowinds; literally you can see the park from the room. The street light out front fliggers annoyingly and employees smoke out front in the parking lot. Greeted by two gentlemen one of which seem really helpful the other just doing his job. There was a hand written sign on the door that... More

Horrible hotel and general manager. Treats guests like second class citizens, Phillis graham the general manager is a bigot. Honestly with how many bad reviews are on here about her and this establishment I have to question the company as a whole. This place should be shut down, for the mold, mildew, and broken items all through the hotel. Do... More

This was my 2nd stay at this hotel and while it isn't the Ritz-Carlton, it was clean, a lot has been updated. Both times, we had updated and clean rooms. we asked to extra towels and got them with no problems! Phyllis (the manager) remembered me from the first time and was very pleasant. She did what she could to... More
