one night stay, for softball player

This hotel was ok for just a one night stay. If you need somewhere just to sleep & shower, its fine. The bathroom was a little dirty around the edges of the floor & shower, but the room was clean. The lines where clean but the air/heater was not the best & was noisey. We sleepy well except for the noise from the room above. The staff was helpful & pleasant.

overnighter...

Close to airport, rooms were clean. Building is showing its age. Staff was nice. I left my cell phone charger, and they are sending it to me. Would probably stay there again if needed. Breakfast was minimal and didn't see a toaster for the bread and bagels.

Good stay for a short visit.

Phone didn't work in my room. Wasn't there long enough for it to matter. There was not a TV remote in the room. Had to go down to the front desk since the phone didn't work. They gave me one that did work. Breakfast was good!! All else was satisfactory.

Great Location

I went for the Memorial Day Race Week and the location was great (if you don't mind the highway next to you). It was 7 minutes from the airport 9 minutes to Downtown, and 18 minutes to Charlotte Motor Speedway. The hotel was average, nothing special but for the amount of time I spent in it, it was perfect. I would recommend this for a group of guys going for race weekend, as for a family stay, only because I have kids I'd look somewhere else in the area.
