Pros: Close to highway and staff
Cons: Bugs need to dealt with
Location: Just a stopover.
Lady at the desk could not have been nicer or friendlier. Downhill from there! Killed 4 cockroaches within 10 minutes of being in room. Spider webs in upper corners of room. Switched rooms and this one was OK. Coffee in the morning was fresh and the lady behind the desk was extremely helpful and gave us road report for our travels. Good food and service in Mexican restaurant in hotel.

I was looking for a good room at a decent price for a last minute booking in the area and this was a nice deal and find. Wasn't crazy about the location being right across the road from the entrance of Carowinds, but like I said it was a last minute booking and couldn't really complain too much about anything else given the time and circumstances. I would definitely recommend this place and location to anyone though.

Pros: Had a Mexican restuarant in it.
Cons: Dates.
Location: Pretty close to outlet malls.
It's a decent hotel. Had holes in the wall and cigarette holes in the lining. Good size fridge and microwave. Had hot water which is saying a lot the last few places I stayed didn't. Could be cheaper.

The room I was 1st assigned was 1013. Unpacked car and arrived at room. Room smelled & had been used but not clean. Another room was assigned and an apology was given. My issue is why was that room in the system as a room to assign a guest & why wasn't it cleaned. The bed was unmade and the bathroom was nasty. I suggest requesting a 1st level room bc there is no way a level 1 room would have been not cleaned. Oh yea I checked in at they had plenty time to check the room. I expected breakfast bc the room was 103 a night..they didn't even have coffee. The bed was very uncomfortable for a 4 to 5 star hotel. The patio was a plus bc I smoke.

Not a 3 star hotel

Clarion at the Carowinds is dirty, old, outdated and to top it off I saw a roach and not the flying palmetto bugs... They are renovating so maybe it will get better but for right now, don't waste your time if you are looking for a quality clean 3 star hotel. Front desk staff was very accommodating...

Rude and low class staff, Motel Quality

Pros: TO leave it after the first night out of 4 and get my money back
Cons: fire the rude and lazy front desk person
Location: it is just fine
Cant find more rude and low class people like the ones on the front desk Terrible Service , its like jail service , pick up your services your self kind of hotel .pick up your towels and clean your room since the staff is so busy being lazy and accusing customers of being rude , of course I will be rude when you are being so lazy and not doing your job. Old furniture , mattress broke my back , and cant be more smelly , it should be titled as a motel highway service , not 3 star hotel or service for sure . On weekends the lazy front desk person is all what you get , so If you want any person to complain to you are stuck with the super smart person on the front desk who hates her job and everyone around her

This is a Value Hotel

Pros: fairly clean
Cons: more extensive repairs and updating
The hotel served its purpose of a ok place to sleep and leave but calling it a 3 star hotel is a stretch without as much as breakfast. The hotel is OLD and despite their efforts to replace some stuff it clearly shows. Our room was clean enough and the fixtures, furniture and carpet looked to be new but the walls were clearly patched up and the ceiling had some damage. The room is very dim and the lighting is bad the bulbs have a cold hue to them. Is it an ok place to sleep, yes but that's all and this should be marketed as a budget/value hotel not a three star full service facility.

This place was definitely no-frills, but the staff was wonderful. The phone didn't work in the room which was a safety issue to me.
