We stayed here for one night for an event for my son at UNC Charlotte. It happened to be Valentine's Day and the NBA All Star Weekend. I had to settle for a room with a Queen sized bed and the sofa bed for my son. The sofa bed was highly uncomfortable. Our room smelled terribly

Hotel was ok, we were able to check in early at no charge which was nice. Room was for the most part clean except for the lamp shades had stains all over and a musty smell coming from the AC. Staff upon checking in was very nice and helpful but the night shift were a little rude

Responded 12 Oct 2018
Hi willis33000, My name is Anthony and I thank you for your recent stay with us and reviewing our property. I'm pleased you liked the cleanliness of your room. On the other hand, I'm sorry you were not satisfied with the condition of your room's furniture and the unusual smell coming from your air-conditioner. I'm also sorry for the lack of service provided by some of our staff and the issues you had with your bill, but then was rectified. We highly value views, opinions and feedback from our guests, as this allows us to constantly improve the service we provide. Thank you for staying and we hope you give us another chance to make your stay as best as it can be. Sincerely, Anthony M Case Manager IHGService

Comfortable and clean hotel with the nicest employees!! Can't beat the price. It's situated in a safe and really pretty area. Beds and pillows were comfy also. Very quiet considering it looked busy every day. Close to Lowes, Target, Food Lion. Met my needs for a week. Free

The property is off the beaten path of Charlotte's several interstates, yet is convenient to all of them, as well as to attractions such as Concord Mills and PNC Pavilion. I was only here overnight, so I didn't have a chance to use everything, but my suite came with full-size

Clean and efficient. Convenient to UNCC area. Very quiet. We stayed in Room 243 where the clock radio didn't work and the wall thermostat was not hooked up. Figured out the comtrols were at the unit instead. Staff was nice.

Yes, food can be delivered. There is a restaurant in walking distance; however it doesn't sell alcoholic beverages. There are quite a few restaurants in the area, such as Friday's. There is also an ABC Spirits store that sells liquor (no wine). They sell wine and beer at Food Lion less then 10 minutes away. In regard to premium channels, there are 3 HBO channels. Including HGTV and FOOD. Hope this helps.
