Great Location

Great Concert

The hotel was clean, felt secure, it offered breakfast, and is only 12-15 mins away from downtown charlotte. I stayed a night here because of an August Burns Red concert in Amos's South End. To be honest I just stayed there to sleep, and leave the next day. Would recommend this to anyone especially to those who want to be in a near airport.

Awesome airport proximity

My wife and I missed our flight connection and ended up having to stay overnight in Charlotte. Econo Lodge was a short shuttle ride away from the hotel, and a great value.

Quick trip stay to the airport

It was what you get at a cheap price, but it was great for a one night stay to get to the airport,

Charlotte Airport Hotel

This hotel is in a great location only minutes from the airport. We only spent one night here and then caught an early flight out the next morning so it was sufficient. I would not want to stay here longer than one night. Since this hotel is right by the interstate it was very loud in the room we were in. The hotel could have been cleaner but hey you get what you pay for. Overall it was fine to spend one night but wouldn't stay any longer.

Good place for quick layover

My room had two double beds, one of which had broken springs. The other bed was acceptable. Very clean with good hot shower, standard bleached towels and TV with working remote. Special deal with Domino's pizza made my night. Good heater was useful on a cold December night returning for the holidays. No line at check-in during prime time was a good find. Outdoor entrance on second floor felt secure enough with good lock. Airport corridor environment was quiet and peaceful. Wake up call was useful. Free airport shuttle starting at 4:00am was ideal in my situation. SEE MY TRAVEL TIP BELOW ON WHAT YOU NEED TO DO PRECISELY TO ENSURE YOUR USE OF THE SHUTTLE.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

If you need the airport shuttle, be sure to sign in on the right line for the right time on the sheet under the desk lamp in the lobby THE NIGHT BEFORE. They only take ?seven passengers every half hour, first sign, first served. Do not be number eight!
