We booked the Courtyard by Marriott at Arrowood as it was in a great location and convenient to Carowinds. The location is in a quiet area just off of I-77 with plenty of restaurants within a short distance.
The hotel is your typical Courtyard property, with a nice lobby (complete with fireplace and comfy chairs) and a grab-and-go snack area (snack items, sodas, beer/wine, etc). Check-in was a breeze with a plus being that they asked which level we would prefer for our room (hotel has 3 floors). We chose the top floor as all of the rooms have balconies, so the first floor opens up either directly to the pool area or the parking lot (a bit more secure feeling on floors 2 and 3).
The room was nice, complete with flat-screen tvs, a sofabed (we had a King room) and adequate bathroom. This is no 4-star hotel, but it is certainly offers nice accommodations for a mid-tier hotel.
I will say that the only negative was that there seemed to be a lot of airplane traffic overhead, as the airport is located just a few miles away (this may have been increased since we were on the top floor- 2nd floor might be the best bet).
Overall, this is a great place to stay if visiting Carowinds, or if you do not need to be closer to down/uptown Charlotte.
