Recent guest reviews

Old, tatered and I will not stay there again. The room was way past in need of a update.

First the pool was closed. The front desk said a pump had failed and even when fixed would still need to be inspected. So, no use of a pool on very hot days during my stay. Ironing board was unusable. The internet in the room was basically non-existent. Lost water for an hour or so due to the town digging up a pipe. The beds had sheets for covers, no blankets.

Hotel is looking old, Ceiling in the hallway had a bad repair job on the 4th floor. The key card wouldn't work and had to get a new one, still didn't work, batteries had to be replaced . This at almost midnight and with my granddaughter who was exhausted. Te hotel staff was very pleasant and apologetic about the problem so the only thing I was upset about was the time of day it happened.

I had a late check in, which went very smoothly. The hotel was easy to find and well lighted. The hotel was clean inside and outside. I was recommended a restaurant by the front desk clerk, that was close and it proved to be worthwhile. The morning breakfast was very complete with many choices and clean. e

This hotel was as expected. It was centrally located to the Lake Norman area and Rt 77 which is what we wanted. The hotel was satisfactory but is definitely only a 2-3 star. The outdoor pool was enjoyed by my husband as the weather was in the mid-high 90's part of the time we were here. The front desk staff were helpful.

Average room. Good value. Friendly staff. Would recommend to others.

This was an older hotel so you could see the wear and tear from numerous visitors. It was clean but needs some remodeling. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Hotel was clean, comfortable and good value. Harvey's across the street was a good bar/restaurant!

I had a very good time and got what I expected. Will definitively stay there again if life takes me back in that area.

The staff were nice and accommodations more than adequate. Didn't get a chance to try the breakfast but the Waffle House is within walking distance! Nice places to shop & eat close by. Mike

The room was just about what I expected for the price. Clean & comfortable. The king sized bed was great, as were the extra pillows. The photos aren't up to date, the rooms now have flatscreen televisions. I'd stay here again.

Third time (and last) I've stayed here. Gone downhill. Same old yellow caution tape around the non-working hot tub near the pool. Dirty carpeting around baseboards and horrible behind bedside table. One of the glasses was filthy and hadn't been washed. The toilet didn't flush, so we had to manually pull the chain. The bathroom door opens against the toilet and doesn't quite clear it. There was a huge stain with mildew on the bed skirt and The curtains had visible dust and possible mildew. There were also a couple of dark, questionable stains on one of the walls. We also had trouble turning on one of the bedside lights because the switch was stuck. And on top of the microwave was a big glob of something, I'm guessing food. And lastly, the provided note pad was partially wet and had food debris on it. I dared not try the breakfast buffet after seeing all the ickies in our room. Also, the lobby was in need of a good vacuuming. Very disappointing.

The staff was wonderful to us,gave us coupons for places to eat, hotel was clean,breakfast was alright but I wished it had more hot items.. loved the suite gave our grandson a room of his own.. price was alright... Would stay again...

The facility is shabby with a worn look that detracts from the first impression. The lobby was not very welcoming. The room was spartan but the bed was comfortable and quiet. More a 2 star feel than 3 star. Definitely needs an update. That being said, I had a great night's sleep.

The staff of the hotel was extra friendly and helpful and the room was very very clean and fresh smelling. The breakfast bar was pretty good. I don't like biscuits and sweet rolls, other than that I have no complaints. The location was perfect, just a 5 minute walk to the party. I'll be back.

good points: friendly helpful owner and staff, right off 77 with loads of retail nearby, everything worked in the room and clean bad points: the place does not believe in maintenance, hot tub broken, shower falling apart, gereally the hotel is being held together with wire and duct tape. You get what you pay for...

The hotel was best available for student orientation at Davidson College. Lobby was ok, but upstairs halls bleak. The room was basic, with air conditioning blowing noise. Toilet handle did not work so had to lift top to flush. Shower walls showed a bad job of caulking and maybe dirt or mold. Bed was clean and comfortable. Said they provided free breakfast but did not see where as went through lobby in morning on way out.
