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.
