The good news: there are really jovial helpful staff here to welcome you. The fitness room, though dated, is adequate. The breakfast has good variety, though not much in the way of hot food. Bed was comfortable. Lots of space in the room, full (but dated) kitchen. On to the glaring deficiency: the rooms are stuck in the 1980's or...

My vehicle was broken into during my stay. They knew about it at the front desk but never notified me. and they don't have security or cameras monitoring the parking lot. The air conditioner was in poor condition and the refrigerator made loud noise all night.

Came here for recent business trip. Area easy to navigate and close to some sites. I love to stay at the suites. It's comfortable and reminds me of a little apartment. It was good to be able to have a hot breakfast in the morning. The staff were friendly and met my needs

If you're coming to Charlotte for a quick stay, this is a great hotel to stay in. The best part of the hotel is definitely the front desk staff. The room I stayed in (2 bedroom suite) had ample room for our family. The room was clean, but it could use some updating. The fridge had a huge dent in...

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night with my husband and toddler. The room was very clean and comfortable. There was a full kitchen which was perfect for us being that we were traveling with a toddler. The bed was comfortable. The sofa bed was a little squeaky but that's pretty much expected. The grounds were very clean and...

Have stayed at this hotel many times. Good location to IBM Blvd. Can walk across parking lot to Romano Italian Resturant. Hotel is very spacious with oversized rooms to lay on couch or sit at the table to work. Kitchen is a nice extra, though tend only to use the frig and M/W. Room is always very clean and housekeeping...

The Towne Place Suites was just okay it was serviceable. It needs updating and modernizing. The kitchenette was quaint (in need of newer appliances. The walls were pretty thin. I could hear other patrons talking and involved in adult play. The hotel had an old smell. I can't quit put my finger on it. The bedding wasn't too comfortable; although...

Pet friendly, people friendly. The staff was so accommodating. We were lucky to find room with both the race and hurricane evacuation. There were 2 of us and two dogs. We stayed 3 nights. It was clean. Housekeeping was excellent. Just fortunate they had room. So glad to have a kitchen and a convenient large desk.

We are so glad that we were able to accommodate your stay during that busy time. The Nascar Races are some of our busiest events, so it was indeed fortuitous that we had availability. Our full kitchens, friendly staff, and ability to accommodate pets are huge draws. Thank you for reviewing our property and for your kind words. We hope...

Loved my stay here. Couldn't possibly say enough wonderful things about the staff. I wish I could remember all the names of the people who helped me- the man that works during the day was constantly so cheerful and accommodating. Room was bright and clean- couldn't ask for a cleaning staff. Outside grounds were well kept and area was safe....

Thank you so much for your kind accolades. Mike, our daytime agent, is truly welcoming and personable. I will gladly share with him your thoughts. We are indeed in a quiet, comfortable nook just off of the main road. We pride ourselves on offering a clean and comfortable escape from the outside world. Thank you for taking notice of these....

Quiet room (except for those in room AC which are ... noisy and cut in and out). Breakfast was included but plastic cups and plates, limited choice and "average" coffee (average for coffee in this part of the world)
