Exceptional 10.0
Best hotel in Charlotte
Love, love this hotel. It is convenient to everything, just off I85. Staff is helpful and super nice. My room was large with large bathroom. Everything was super clean. Towels were nice and plush. Lots of storage. Bed was comfortable with great bedding. Love the full size refrigerator and other appliances that you don't have in most hotel rooms. No noise from other rooms. Will definitely stay here again.

Quiet cozy spot.
I would recommend it to my friends. When I got there I had a bit of a flustered moment because of the pet fees. I thought it was already added in my booking. I remember calling and asking about the bill and get as much pet info so as no surprise fees or anything would pop up. After explaining things to the evening manager, he was really nice and help me resolve the matter. Weeesh!! -Wipe eye brows😄 glad that worked out! Very nice and helpful dudes/ staff.👍👍

Room was very out dated and dingy not the best of clientele. Way overpriced for what I got

Great staff
The hotel was good, everything was clean and comfortable. What made the stay great was the help of Lena at the front desk who could not have been nicer or more helpful. Thank you Lena! Congratulations on the new baby!

Not going back to Mold
The check in was quick and efficient. Unfortunately it was the next day after I returned from funeral service that I looked up and saw several large mold spots on the ceiling. The Beds were also an issue as I awoke each day with one side of my back locked up.
