“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

I stayed here with a friend for a one-night layover, and it was great! The king-sized bed was super comfortable, and the room was immaculate. On the way in, you pass by a few other hotels that look run down, but this is a gem set away from the main roads and still easily accessible. If you're going to Carowinds, it's right across the road! This location is convenient, the staff is so friendly, and they have a decent continental breakfast (plus waffles!). Cable and internet work great. Beware the bright bathroom lights, though! They'll blind you if you're fumbling around for the switch in the dark. Also, the stairwells and hallways generally smell strongly of cleaning agents, but the rooms don't, and that's what really matters!

As my family and I were traveling through South Carolina, we stopped at this Best Western to get some rest. What a beautiful hotel!! The lobby was beautiful and the room was even better. Extremely clean, beds were comfortable, bathroom very roomy, etc. There is not one bad thing I can say about this hotel. The front desk staff was very friendly and the complimentary breakfast more than met our needs. Great place to stay!

This is a nice hotel for the price and class. Everything looks new and very clean. You cannot hear highway traffic and the noise within the hotel is minimal. It's within walking distance of carowinds, but traffic is usually heavy. This is a really good place to stay for a few nights.

The stairwells (stairwells!) smelled of Carpet Fresh and Febreze (and not just coated over, they were truly CLEAN-they had me at that). I'm a female travelling alone for a concert in Charlotte, so safety and cleanliness were important, price and location secondary. I didn't necessarily want to stay in downtown Charlotte, so this was perfect-no more than 20 minutes away from the venue with super-easy accesss from I-77. If you're here for the Carowinds Amusement Park, this is your location. The best part is you can't see the hotel from the main road. It was tucked away in a quiet corner away from the madding crowd. There was a gorgeous sunny loft upstairs with comfy chairs, books, couches and lamps and a computer and printer. What can I say? The front desk was extremely friendly (I forgot how nice it is to be OUT of South Florida), the room exquisite and more than I expected (huge bed with super-fresh linens and big, fluffy pillows), decent breakfast choices, a pool, a washer and dryer on the premises, plenty of non-drive-thru restaurants a short drive away: all this at a very fair price.
I looked at cheaper rooms ($40-$65) down the road and quickly made tire tracks out of there: all I can say is "Ewwww!" Stinky, NOT safe--the kind of places that should rent by the hour if you know what I mean. The standard rate at Best Western is very fair for its location (around $70?). Sold, sold, sold, and I would definitely stay there again!
Did I mention the stairwells smelled like Carpet Fresh? :)

Room Tip: Still a good deal with no discount, but it doesn't hurt to ask for any discounts (AAA, etc.)

One of the cleanest hotels we've stayed in. Nice, friendly staff. Comfortable King bed. Cold a/c. Across from Carowinds. No problems. Great place for a good night's sleep without lots of extras.

This hotel was immaculately clean. The front desk staff was friendly, giving us Band-Aids for the kids and extra pillows for us. Breakfast was so-so. You can avoid the $10 parking fee at Carowinds if you walk, but it is quite a hike in the summer heat (about 1/2 -3/4 mile). I would stay here again if I were making a return trip.

Room Tip: Got the 55+ rate since my husband qualified

We booked stay for a pga event in Charlotte and was great. Rooms are clean, adequate continental breakfast, and reasonably priced. Minutes away from shops to meet any needs. Highly recommend this hotel.
