Staff is always friendly and they try to help you out anyway that they can. The location is back off the highway so no traffic noise. The room is modern and spacious. Did not have breakfast so no comment about the food. I would definitely stay again and recommend to other people

Price was good for what I got (bed, breakfast, shower, the usual). However the staff is what left a bad taste in my mouth. Not the nice lady who welcomed me early in the morning as I came in tired and just wanted to sleep - sure was awesome and very friendly. It was the younger lady in the morning... More

Good hotel. Clean, quiet, friendly staff. Heat lamp in bathroom. Free breakfast had bacon, eggs, sausage, waffles, plus all the usual free breakfast options, and was served until 10am. Macs Speedshop (great food, open late) right across the street. The bed was way too soft for us, we both woke up with back and neck pain each morning (and he... More

We travel on the road quite a bit and this is by far the worst hotel ever. It's not only old but our suite had a moldy smell. The room was so dingy and gross. The shower I didn't even want to use. The tv's our SD, the shower is gross. It's not even that it's old, it's how uncomfortable... More

We stayed here for 1 night, since most of the Huntersville hotels were booked. The rooms are dirty-housekeeping doesn't dust properly, the tub had mildew everywhere, the curtains were old, wrinkled and had black stains on the back of them. The A/C cord was loose and the A/C kept cutting off. Their breakfast options were few, and there was no... More

We booked here just for a night on our way back from Florida to Michigan. Yes the room was cheap but the quality was terrible. The housekeeping didn't remove the soaps of the people who visited before us from the bathroom. The air conditioning was so loud you could believe that you have a helicopter inside.We also got the room... More

I've stayed here a couple times for work. They give weekly rates but if you have to check out early they bump it back to the daily rate. Other than that it's a decent hotel. Right across the street they have two good restaurants and a subway next to it. All are walking distance. The hotel is clean, I never... More

I've used Hotwire many times in the past to find a good hotel deal and it has usually worked out. And finding a 2 & 1/2 star place for $57/night in the midst of $90 Cornelius-area hotels seemed worth the chance. My wife and I arrived at the Clarion immediately finding the positive reviews about the staff to be spot... More

I stayed here because of the corporate rate. Upon entering I knew it was a mistake. Very small lobby. Decor is bad. Staff is friendly but they charge your credit card for the full amount when you check in. The breakfast was basic. Rooms need refurbishing plus some new paint and carpet. I'll try the Comfort Inn across the street... More

If you are on your last legs and need a place to transition...you've found the place!! Moldy walls, mysterious stained sheets and towels, doors that go bump against the toilet at night, freezing cold showers at all times of the day, carpets that have creepy crawlers wrap around your feet, lights that flicker at their will.. you will love this...

We understand that you are upset about the hot water, and apologize that we were unable to schedule a plumber that very day. Luckily, this was just a temporary issue and we were able to resolve it with the help of a plumbing expert. Although the rest of the review was colorful and playful, please understand that we do take... More
