Worked for Us.

Basic hotel, located halfway between center of town and speedway. Easy access heading either direction. Lots of restaurants and shops close by. Room was clean, but hallways and elevators needed to be vacuumed badly.

Probably 10-15 choices for all types if dining. Also, good shopping options. All within a mile of the hotel. U.S.29 to speedway. Easy access to I-85 to I-77 and downtown Charlotte.

Positives: Convenient to UNCC and restaurants/shopping. Breakfast buffet was good. Bathroom was clean. Needs improvement: Sofa bed very worn out. Hotel and room was dated and felt unclean. Towels old, small, and worn out.

Shabby and in serious need of updates

Just a very low quality hotel, and I expected more from the pictures and on line reviews. Stains on the sofa. No coffee table at all in the suite, which was just a regular room cut in half by a door. Furniture was a bit threadbare. Tried to take my 4 year old to the pool which was advertised as heated, but it was half indoor, half outdoor, so heat was ineffective. Pool edges peeling. Free breakfast was basically cereal and Danish.
