Good proximity to Charlotte Airport

If you just need a quick place to rest your head before or after traveling, this place is fine. Can be extremely noisy though due to planes and traffic on 85 - the front desk has ear plugs!

Airport Convenience

We've stayed in this hotel twice now when it's been important to have a shuttle that runs very early to Charlotte-Douglas Airport. We've found the staff incredibly helpful, the rooms functional and clean (but for the odd clogged sink), and can recommend staying there if you need an inexpensive, basic room for the night before your early morning flight.

The bed linens appeared to be dingy and there was on odor and carpet stains.

It was okay in a pinch, but not sure I would recommend.

Nope

When you are scared to walk on the carpet it's not good... the lady at the front desk was very nice but the room was definitely not clean. The tub was scary, the room smelled like smoke and everything looked dirty. Granted I'm sure there are worse places but if you have another pick I suggest going somewhere else. As a friendly tip, if you do stay there avoid the elevator. The stairs were under construction so we had to take the scary elevator to the 2nd floor which had an impressively strong scent of cologne/ perfume mixed with smoke. To top it off it made this creepy squeaking noise when it closed like it had just trapped you eternally in it's clutches. I swear a one floor ride should not feel long enough to wonder if you will ever see the light of day again.

Over night stay

Hotel was close to the whitewater center. Very clean. The first room we were given the air didn't work is they moved us. The second room had a chemical odor. So they upgraded us to a suite. Staff was so very nice and friendly. The hotel is older and they r doing renovations. It's a decent hotel for the price. The doors to the rooms open to the outside on the first n second floors.

Very convenient to airport, which was why I picked it. The bathroom light didn't work in first room so they put me in another upgraded room. The a/c unit was very noisy.
