I was in Charlotte for a week, and needed an affordable, convenient place to stay. This was perfect. It was much nicer than I ever would have expected for a hotel in this price range.

Do not even think about it!!!!!!!

We checked in and then checked out once we walked the hall way to the room and seen the room. They booked us on the second floor and the hotel doesn't have an elevator. After we got to the room and went around the women selling themselves and the drug dealers in the hallway we quickly called to cancel our reservation. The room had bed bugs and the sheets had stains on them. The bathtub had black rings around the rim and the air condition was broken and the room smelled badly. When we called to cancel the women at the front desk told us she would only refund the second night and not the first as we stepped in to this dangerous place and was scared to death of either getting shot and or taking a desease home with us. We left and checked in at a nice place 10 miles away and I disputed the charges with my bank and would recommend to avoid this place. I wouldn't even drive by it as you might catch something or get shot. This place needs to be closed down.

Really good for the price

The room was well laid out so even though it was somewhat small there was no feeling of being cramped. The room was clean and looked like it had been remodeled in the past few years. There was no cheap motel odor. There was a small three foot tall refrigerator, a microwave, a coffee maker (we used the fridge but neither of the other two). The king size bed was too soft for my personal taste. and it felt like my body was sloping down towards my head although this was probably an illusion. We have a sleep number bead at home so maybe our standards are unreasonable. The closet space was adequate even though the no-theft hangers were a pain to use. The TV was a flat panel Viseo and was OK. There were more channels that we needed. We had no maid service since our stay was Christmas eve through the day after Christmas so I can't evaluate that. The free breakfast was spartan -- do it yourself waffles, two kinds of cold cereal, white bread, whole wheat bread, English muffins, mini-bagles, small donuts, orange juice, apple juice, milk, regular and decaf coffee, tea bags. oranges and apples. We ate there Christmas morning since nothing else was open but the day after we elected to go to fast food. The bathroom was good. The shower had marble (or something close) walls, the shower head was very good. The only downside was no fan (or if there was one it didn't pull out steam very fast. There is a Mexican restaurant, Azteca, beside the motel. We ate there on Christmas eve at about 8:30 pm. The food was good and quite reasonable. I don't think the motel and restaurant are associated so you can't charge your meals to your room. The location is on Woodlawn road about 1/4 mile from I-77. Considering the price, I would unhesitatingly recommend this motel. It's a step above most places in this price range

There is a gas station right across the street that has water, soft drinks, beer, and the usual stuff that a mini-mart gas station has at reasonable prices -- eg Coke 12 pack 3.99, 24 bottles of water 3.49.

very nice

nice hotel staff, very friendly, breakfast was alright not a whole lot a variety but still good and fresh. room was nice and spacious, shower was very nice and relaxing. The only thing that needs to be updated is the entertainment center where an old tv used to be before they updated and now it has a big empty space and looks tacky. Overall I would def stay again I did not feel uncomfortable in anyway it was nice to feel safe while in charlotte.

Horrid

This stay was horrible. This website should take this off their list. I left at 2am because I couldn't sleep from people in and out of building, dope sales in parking lot and street walkers in parking lot. Didn't even stay for free breakfast, who knows how that would turned out. The room was run down, didnt didnt even sleep under the sheets. $70 with fees and taxes. Rip off

Don't Do It

This is a disgusting hotel and would never stay there again. Its very noisy and in desperiate need of repair. It was cigarettte burns all over the furniture, the bathroom was not clean and had feces on the walls, the curtains were broken and not fully hanging, lamp shades were missing and they advertise free internet access but very poor signal. Beware of staying here. Spoke with the front desk clerk and agreed that the hotel needed repair but nothing he could do. Contacted Days Inn corporate and they said they would contact the manager. Beware of this hotel. Have stayed at Days Inn before and this hotel does not meet the standards.

Good location, but...

The location was nice, but staff especially the front desk was unpleasant. The front desk didn't have a good attitude and we had to figure out where or room was on or own. You get what you pay for!
