This was the first time I had ever stayed in a Drury Hotel. After using Trip Advisor for advice we decided to stay at this hotel for four nights for a long weekend Spring getaway.
The price was fair (and when we got there we actually found out that our room would be cheaper then expected) and the area seemed decent, with easy access to the I-85 highway and downtown Charlotte.
We also needed a place to stay with our 30lb. dog, which there are no extra costs for having a dog, which was another nice perk. They also gave us a room with easy access to the rear door so we could walk our dog in and out.
A hot breakfast was available every morning, free fountain drink are available during the day along with freshly popped popcorn. The pool and hottub were open and in good shape and all together the property was kept in good condition.
The room was decent. The decor was a little out of date and the exterior wall was brick, but it was clean and housekeeping was attentive. The walls are a little thin so we would often here our neighbors coming and going, but it wasn't that bad. The bed was comfortable.
Wireless internet is available and they even offer a free 24-hour helpdesk for internet issues which we used. They solved the connection problem quickly.
The parking lot is secure and gated and you must use your room key to enter and exit. There are many places to eat within walking distance and the university area shoppes are near by, so there is plenty to do.
After this experience I would stay in this hotel again if in the Charlotte area.
