Reviewed 20 June 2014

Recently stayed at this property and found it to be a great place. It couldn’t be more conveniently located to anything you could possibly need during your stay. The room was large, comfortable, well-appointed and well lit. The bathroom was the same. This was probably one of the more recently renovated rooms. The AC worked well and wasn’t too loud. The bed was quite comfortable. The shower had great water pressure and the bathroom had terrific lighting. Every staff member with whom I spoke was extremely friendly and helpful. I would absolutely stay there again if I was in the area.

If you are looking for the best bed ever, stay on Crowne Plaza Hickory... I have stayed in many hotels of the same chain, and this had the best bed ever!!!

Staff very friendly, rooms very clean and the bed....

It is close to all the major fast food restaurants and also there is an Outback right beside it... it is worth the price, it is the only horizontal style Crowne Plaza and also the cheapest one from the chain.

If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay with a very kind and helpful staff, this is your place

Room Tip: Get an interior room if you don't want the noise from the highway I-40

Overall the place was nice. It was really close to all different types of restaurants. The staff was nice and accommodating. However, our first room was facing the major intersection. Even after midnight i could hear 18 wheelers shifting gears and motorcycles driving down the road. The next day i asked for another room and they were able to change my room.

Room Tip: Don't get a room that faces the street if you are a light sleeper.

We spent the weekend at this hotel with our travel basketball team. Our stay was pleasant but I would mention to anyone making a reservation, be sure to request an interior room. We reserved two rooms for our family of 5. One was interior, the other had windows facing the busy street out front. There was quite a lot of road noise in the exterior room up until about 1 a.m (lots of sirens and it sounded like there was a drag race going on.) It made it difficult to fall asleep.

That was really the only negative thing about our stay. This is an older hotel but it is clean and well-maintained. The kids very much enjoyed the pool area. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The beds are great and if it weren't for the outside noise, it would have been a terrific night's sleep.

We skipped on the hotel breakfast as it's a bit pricey with kids who won't eat enough to make it worth your money.

Will return, but will only stay in an interior room.

Room Tip: Request interior rooms! Otherwise, the road noise will keep you up half the night.

Just returned from a one night stay for grand daughters gymnastic regional competition. Room was comfortable.. Microwave - mini refrig - Beds were soft and comfortable - extra pillows and blankets were provided...Check in was extremely fast... The POOL was awesome for the kids too... warm and salt water with an inviting sauna... restrooms were pool side.... Had an early meet on Saturday morning at 7:30am... so we opted to take carry out coffee and rolls... the restaurant was very accommodating...The buffet did have a nice selection of breakfast items - wishing we would have had more time to stayed and enjoyed.. Our only complaint would be THE TRAFFIC.. our room was first level exterior at the farthest end from the office... right next to the sidewalk and the highway.... finally about 2am it quieted down enough to sleep but then we were up at 6am for the day... Not sure how the other rooms are or if you had an interior room if you would still hear all the noise...

Room Tip: Request an InTeRiOr RoOm away from the Hwy 70 / 321 Traffic night time Noise Is Terrifical ly loud...

Front desk above and beyond expectations. Great greeting and great service! Rooms are spacious and very clean. Bedding is soft and comfortable, pillows await a great nights sleep. Bathroom and amenities as expected. Overall experience great. Try the breakfast buffet, cannot be beat for $10 and sometimes included with your rate!

I am currently sitting in this hotel as I type. It is awful. Extremely moldy in my room, which has caused some sort of respiratory infection. Bed is comfortable, but that's the only good thing. Request an interior room if at all possible. I'm so thankful this is my last night!!
