Driving to Myrtle Beach, what area of Charlotte is best stop

We are coming from Columbus area so this should be around 7 hrs in. Would like a safe, clean area (Hyatt preferably) to stop for continuation to Myrtle. Thanks

Are you taking I-77? If so, you don't need to go to Charlotte. It's much quicker to take I-74 to Winston-Salem. Then I-40 to US 311, which takes you to US 220/I-73. Follow to Rockingham, NC where you pick up I-74 again. Follow to Chadbourn, NC, take NC 410 to US 701 to SC 9, then SC 31 into Myrtle. There are plenty of hotel choices in Winston-Salem, but no Hyatt.

Thanks! The mapquest route had us going through Charolette. Just going for a long weekend so the quickest route is the best.

I agree with the above directions (Winston-Salem to Rockingham, etc) Google maps has you going that way. There are quite a few hotels right off Rt. 220/I-73/74 between High Point and Ashboro. (We stayed in a nice Holiday Inn Express in Ashboro)
