“If you're staying near Carowinds, this place is tops!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

My wife and I decided to have a quiet (read: no kids) belated birthday trip to Carowinds. We came down the night before so that we wouldn't have to cram it in to one day. I used tripadvisor.com to make my hotel selection. There is a reason that this hotel is so highly rated!

The check-in went quick and easy. The desk clerk (cannot remember her name) was extremely pleasant to deal with. The room itself was clean and comfortable. Yes, there were no frills, but it's still a great deal for the price. If security is a big concern, every door (except the main entrance) requires a key card, and there are a ton of cameras all around the building. The parking lot is well lit.

The bed was comfortable, and the A/C can freeze you out of the room if you're not careful.

The location is great for Carowinds, but that's about it. That's not to take away from the hotel, but rather from the area. There is a Cracker Barrel nearby, but the restaurant selection at this exit is sort of scarce. We did discover the Taqueria La Poblanita, which is probably the best Mexican food I've ever eaten; however, it's in the nearly empty Plaza Fiesta (I guess it used to be an old outlet mall), and closes around 7PM, I believe. I felt sort of nervous walking into the place, but it was worth the adventure. I'll review them separately, but if you are in this area, eat at this place. You will thank me for sending you that way.

This is a relatively new property, large, comfortable room, clean, no trucks in the parking lot. It is easily accessed from I-77 and close to the Carowinds amusement park. Only complaint is the paucity of restaurants within walking distance so we elected to go further afield... and got stuck in very heavy northbound I-77 traffic heading into Charlotte. Don't try that at rush hour! A note of caution: we arrived eary afternoon with a reservation, but wanted to cancel the reservation and drive another 3-4 hours. The desk clerk was polite and smiling, but said we would be charged for the night whether we used the room or not. This, despite the fact the hotel was full that night and she said she was turning people away. I suspect the room could easily have been rented but policy is policy, so of course we stayed. Excellent breakfast, by the way.

Room Tip: Any room would be quiet given the lack of trucks, but the south side overlooks a small forest and is...

Our stay at this hotel was one of the best experiences we've ever had. Everything in the room looked brand new and the front desk and morning breakfast people were very helpful and pleasant. Top notch!

Check in was quick and easy (even though we arrived late!), and the room was comfortable. Breakfast was OK, the eating area was crowded so we took our meal back to our room. We might suggest a 2nd waffle maker for this location, especially since it is very close to an amusement park and there are probably lots of families that stay when the park is open for the season. There were three people in line to use it the morning we checked out. Coffee was excellent!
