Overall shabby rooms, stained bedspread, peeling paint, etc. But the real problems for me started when the toilet overflowed. After calling down to the desk, the clerk came up to the room and handed be a push-broom and a plunger. Asking her what she was doing, she replied, "Usually the guest cleans up their own messes plus I can't leave...

The hotel is conveniently located 1 mile from the Carowinds parking lot. It is an older hotel but they are working on renovations. Very clean and nice people working there. An earlier review mentioned bugs in rm110, but we also stayed in that room for 2 nights and saw NO bugs. I think the bedding was new. The breakfast is...

I have had a few weeks of enjoyable stay here. The staff is friendly, my room was always cleaned. The breakfast is great and always my morning paper is there. It is across from the biggest water slides and close to everything. Shopping areas are within ten minutes.

Very clean room large bathroom and great coffee in the room. Breakfast was good, one of the better free breakfasts we've had. The desk clerk on arrival was excellent. The outdoor pool was a little small but still nice if you just need to cool off. Close to the highway for travellers and walking distance to the theme park. Will...

We ignored the TripAdvisor reviews at our expense.....this place is old, many things marginal.....loose toilets, patched walls, sketchy reception people.....after one night we moved to the Comfort Inn Carowinds, which had a much better room at pretty much the same rate......yucky hotel.

The sign in the lobby states that renovations take place during the hours of 12-5 pm and we found that to be the case. This appears to be an older property with a manual front door. We were given a handicap accessible room upon request that was having renovations done which I found unusual. The internet was very poor and...

I don't even know where to begin. The mattress is horrible, the rooms need to be updated and the hotel has no handicap access. I called a week in advance and asked if the pool will still be open and they assured me it would be. Well, it wasn't. We found hair in the jacuzzi and the desk chair is...
