    Good bang for the buck


    April 30, 2015


    This is a good "bang for the buck" suite setup. Perfect for a business traveler on a budget. Room was very comfortable, staff very accommodating. The property has been recently upgraded. One word to the wise, the train tracks are fairly close to the property. In even numbered rooms, your window will more or less face the tracks. It takes me about 3 nights to become immune to them whenever I stay in this part of Charlotte. Be advised. If it's going to be an issue, ask for an odd-numbered suite! Otherwise, this is a good place to stay for the value and experience.

    Check in


    April 28, 2015


    It was late in the evening when we arrived and the front desk clerk seemed more interested in her work than greeting quests. I was in line with one gentleman in front of me checking in,I didn't think the process of checking in should take 30 mins. only to not be completely accurately as she never activated our keys. I was never greeted as an IHG member or given my gift bag, she seemed unaware. The hotel seemed very old and not very clean, our bathroom towels even looked stained yellow. For the price we paid it was an overall bad stay and i would never stay there again nor recommend, there are plenty of other choices in Charlotte.

    I would like to thank you for providing us with your honest feedback. We take pride in our commitment to great customer service, cleanliness, and recognition of loyalty, and I am sincerely sorry to hear that your experience failed to meet that expectation. Your experience and concerns have been shared with our staff. Check-in is typically a quick and efficient process, taking no more than a few minutes per guest, and I apologize for the circumstances that caused the delay you experienced. While our property is not brand new, we have taken many steps to update the property, including a complete remodel of all our guest rooms, and our rates are competitive with comparable hotels in the area. If you are ever in the area again, please contact us. We would love the opportunity to exceed your expectations if you are willing to give us a second chance. Michael C. Guest Services Representative
