My son is a freshman at Davidson College and I have stayed at Country Suites, Lake Norman twice now. The first was for 3 days when he moved in, and the second for family weekend.
I am more of a B&B person, and hotels are really not my thing. I will say, however, that I don't mind staying here at all. The rooms are affordable, the staff extremely pleasant, and the breakfast is much more than just some donuts and coffee! In fact, they have the best "hotel" breakfast I have ever had (in this hotel price range).
I have stayed in a suite both times, for far less than I thought it would be. The bedroom was spacious, and the "living room" had comfortable seating, work table, refrigerator, and microwave. The bathroom is well lit and typical for a hotel.
I tried out the pool and hot tub when I was there over last weekend, and I was very disappointed. The pool was very cold, and the hot tub was almost unbearably hot! Not sure if this was just a bad night at the controls, or if typical.
The location with regard to the college is ideal. It is less than 10 minutes away and you have several options on how you get there. The area itself is under MAJOR construction so it can be a bit difficult to navigate, especially at peak times. There are several major restaurants and stores close by. In fact, O'Charley's and Chilis (I think) are on the same property so you can walk there!
Coffee/tea/hot chocolate available in the main lobby at all hours - so how can you go wrong?
This isn't the BEST place around, but it ranks high up for being a family hotel that is reasonably priced, clean, friendly staff, and comfortable.
