We are a family of 4 with two 5yr olds. We are driving from Ohio and stopping in the Charlotte area for a short rest. We are arriving in the afternoon and will get right back on the road by about 2 or 3am that night/morning. Currently we are booked at the Courtyard SouthPark Mall for $121. But we are now looking at the Rock Hill area. It is closer to our final destination (Florida) and we can save a little bit on hotel costs.
Anyway, how is the Rock hill area for a hotel? Most important features are safety and cleanliness.
There is a Comfort Suites for $98 near the Rock Hill Galleria. Other hotels nearby include: Hilton Garden Inn, Townplace Suites, Holiday Inn, Wingate by Wyndham, and Hampton Inn
There are also other hotels north on I77 near Cherry Road, but they seem to be a “lower” class of hotels (Econolodge, Howard Johnson, Days Inn, Super 8, etc.). But there is a Courtyard in that area. We would not be opposed to staying in that area as long as it is safe and clean. Except for the Courtyard, the prices are definitely cheaper than the ones near Rock Hill Galleria (a big plus!)
1) Is the Rock Hill area safe?
2) Should we keep our Southpark reservations?
3) Should we stay near the Cherry Road or the Rock Hill Galleria?
4) Which hotel in Rock Hill would you recommend?
5) Any other things to consider?
Thanks in advance for responses.
