“Single night Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Great night's stay in Huntersville, a suburb of Charlotte, NC. Suite - type room, very clean. Continental breakfast in the morning. Very nice. Easy on and off from Interstate 77. Would definitely stay there again when visiting our daughter in Huntersville.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

While helping my son move we stayed at this hotel. We had a heck of a time finding a pet friendly hotel in this area. Many of the pet friendly hotels we have stayed have been a bit run down, or at least have given us the run down rooms. Not at this hotel. It was completely fine. The room was very clean and up to date.

We have stayed at this hotel twice. Both times we had a very good experience.

The hotel is within a mile of a very nice and rather large outdoor shopping area - Birkdale Village.

Within 2 miles is a large selection of restaurants.

The hotel has easy access to I-77. Only about 2 miles from the entrance.

Both times we found the staff to be very helpful and extremely friendly.

The breakfast is good and the area is nice and large.

The parking area is large including adjacent parking which will easily accommodate a moving truck.

I stay at Marriott properties all the time, and this one was typical. I found the hotel and my room clean with no issues observed like the previous reviewer. With a family of 4, the included breakfast is always a good deal. The proximity to the Birkdale Village Mall was a plus, with shopping and several food selections. There is also plenty of food choices nearby, by the freeway.

I mistakenly reserved a King room, instead of a 2 room suite and there were none available to move into. This was a bummer for my kids since they had to sleep on an uncomfortable sofa bed.

We stayed at this hotel when we had to move out of our house whilst some work was being done. The staff generally were very pleasant. The seating in the lounge area consisted of an uncomfortable, and rather worn, armchair and a strange, and uncomfortable chaise lounge. We chose to lie on the bed to watch TV the seating was so uncomfortable.

In general the suite was reasonably clean with two exceptions... the handles on the refrigerator need a real scrub because of ingrained dirt and the return air vent for the A/C was covered with dust. The other negative was that the A/C was so noisy we put it off at night.

Room Tip: The rooms looking over the swimming pool have a pleasant view but one night someone played basket ba...

I stayed here for one night on July 5th and was horrified by the filthy room and hallways. Upon entering the hotel I was surprised by how nice it was for economy lodging. We checked in with Tina - a very helpful and friendly employee. Upon exiting the elevator we were greeted by used Q-Tips (cotton swabs) on the floor of the hallway - this was incredibly off-putting, however, I assumed that another visitor had recently littered - revolting. It was still there 5 hours later.

Once we entered the room it seemed to be clean and spacious. I walked into the bathroom to find the soap dish in the shower filled with pink soap scum and body hair. Looking around the floor was covered in hair, mold, as well as yellow surface stains (near the toilet - yes...). The shower curtain was also speckled with mold. In addition, the beds and pillows are not comfortable.

If you are visiting Lake Norman there are not many hotel options around. We stayed at the Hampton Inn the first two nights and although they were renovating the lobby found it to be much more comfortable.

As a previous platinum member I am familiar w/ Marriott and expected more. I highly recommend you do not stay here.

Room Tip: Explore other options.

This hotel was perfect for what we needed it for. We were traveling South and wanted a nice halfway point where our 2 year old would be able to sleep in one room while we stayed up in another and where pets were accepted. We were only there about 10 hours so I can't really say how I would feel about a longer stay, but worked great for us. We did ask for a crib when I booked and it wasn't in the room, it wasn't a big deal, it was already late and we just put our daughter between us in the King bed.

Breakfast wasn't very good, but it's included so no big deal. Next time we travel like this I will definitely stay here again.

A year before my wedding I booked a block of 30 rooms. All rooms were booked 2 weeks prior. One week prior to my wedding, the sales team called and said they had to move 10 of my guests (who were coming in from all over the United States) to the Courtyard Marriott down the street because a VIP group worth a lot more money extended their stay.
Normally, this wouldn't be a big deal, but we scheduled all of our activities within walking distance of the hotel and we rented a shuttle to get them back and forth to and from the wedding. Additionally, a lot of our guests are family and haven't seen each other in a number of years.
With the additional hotel property added, the shuttle time had to be extended and we incurred more costs. The only resolution they offered us was a $10 discount to our guests at the Courtyard.
I will never recommend this hotel and have never been treated with such poor service.
