Great relaxing getaway

This hotel had a great location! It was near the boardwalk and university area which was perfect. Staff was awesome! The only negative thing I would have to say is carpet in the hallways needs to be replaced with new carpet and the suites are a bit small but still cozy!

Go to the boardwalk which is down the street or the epicenter uptown.

Dated

TV didn't work. Old cabinets, newer carpet, older shower curtains. Terrible caulk job in tub. Kitchen was just ok. Staff was great and gave me a discount for TV not working.

Great advertising, but not worth the money

We chose this hotel because we were traveling with our three children, and wanted room to spread out a little. We would have been better off in a regular hotel room. The pictures were exactly what they had.... Minus the holes in the furniture, old and nasty appliances, and ridiculously small breakfast and eating area. Our room was beside the main stairs, so all night long we could hear conversations in the stairwell, people tromping around upstairs, and babies crying. The couch literally had large holes in it, the towels were worn and fraying, and the kitchenette appliances looked like they were at least 20 years old. Check-in and check-out was smooth, and the staff was friendly, but everything else was a huge disappointment and not worth the money we paid for the night. We had a sleepless, miserable night. Do not book here.

TownePlace

My experience at the TownePlace Suites was a first for me and my family. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean. Workout room had minimal equipment, but the bike worked, the treadmill worked and the stairmaster worked. The only downfall, in my opinion, were the beds. A little worn out. I could feel the springs in a couple of places. However, I will return to this hotel in the future and I will not hesitate to stay in another location if a TownePlace Suites is an option.

More than Adequate for my Needs

I will admit that I didn't do much more than lie on the couch and watch television during my stay. I was physically exhausted from the interstate move I was making. All I really needed was a place to sleep for the night. However, this was a nice hotel room with the kitchenette, nice bathroom, lounging/living area, and bed. The only problem I saw was that the windows looked like the needed replacing or work. I would not have even noticed except housekeeping accidentally left them open, and they creaked and screeched when I closed them. Also, the continental breakfast left something to be desired. However, it was a holiday. What they did have at breakfast was free, so I can't really complain. Otherwise, I didn't see any issues. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Good price for the value, especially with the kitchenette. The hotel was extremely easy to find - right off the interstate. If for some reason I ever find myself in Charlotte again, I will definitely stay here.

Very good location and price

The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. The full service kitchen was a very plesant surprise. Centrally located to area restaurants and shopping made this an ideal place to stay. Easy access to I-85 was an added bonus.

An older hotel, comfortable stay

The hotel was older, not fancy, but had the basics; enjoyed the large rooms, and the complete kitchen.
