Stayed at this hotel with friends to attend a concert and I was very pleased with the hotel. I thought it looked really dated and kind of gloomy in the pictures on the hotel website so I was a little unsure of what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. First of all this is THE place to stay if attending an event at RBC Center or Carter-Finley stadium. It really is a very short walk to both. Also within easy walking distance is a sports/bar grill (Backyard Bistro), a Wendy's, and a convenience store. The hotel has plenty of free parking for guests. We had a 2 queen room which has 2 comfortable beds, a tiny kitchenette area with microwave, sink, cabinets, and a dining table, a sofabed, and small/older TV. While not huge it was roomy enough. Being so close to the stadium and the crowds leaving it, I was a little worried that there would be a lot of noise as people left, but it was nice and quiet. Best of all was the staff, they were genuinely friendly, quick, and helpful to customers. Free wifi worked great. All in all a very nice stay and I'd go back any day. If I had to criticize anything I'd say the carpet and TVs could use some updating, but no biggie.
