I have never stayed in the Charlotte area and was skeptical about the entire situation. After attending a concert at a local venue, we stayed overnight at the Rodeway Inn. The inn was very accessible and right off of a main road. The area seemed to be a little sketchy seeing that their were multiple law enforcement officers around the inn. Arriving late in the evening, around 11:30 pm, the staff was very professional and friendly.
The room was much smaller than expected but worked just fine for staying for overnight. Their were fruit fly like bugs in the bathroom which I believe were coming from the shower drain.
Other than the drain flies, the inn was very accommodating for the price!
