Last night my husband, toddler, and myself stayed at this hotel after a long day at Carowinds. My husband and I both have stayed in a variety of hotels and are no strangers to sleeping on a budget. However, I have stayed in way less expensive hotels that were by far better than this one. The lobby elevator area reeks...

I usually stay across the street, but couldn't get a room at my usual hotel. This hotel does not offer free breakfast. I needed to print something only to find out their business center does not have a printer.

We were not able to check in on arrival. The computer system was down. We had to wait about 45 minutes. The management told us that all Choice Hotels were having this problems. The hotel was a little dated. The room was okay. The location was ideal; close to Carowinds. The pool was closed at the time. The restaurant connected...

I was questioning this hotel because of the negative reviews, but took the chance on it. I was not disappointed. We booked a two-room suite, which was on the 11th floor. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. Included a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, & kitchen sink, and a fold-out sofa bed in one room, and the bathroom and two bed set...

Great price for a quick stop passing through. Hotel looks like it's undergoing renovations. (Trim isn't painted, exposed cords or wires in ice/vending area). Our room was semi clean, could've used a little extra attention. My bathroom floor hadn't been swept/moped. There was hairs and a razor shield behind the door. Also a used rag under the sink. The toilet...

The Clarion at Carowinds, is a decent priced and very conveniently located hotel across from Carowinds park. The room was decent sized, and you couldn't ask for a better location. However, the room had a strong odor (musty, old age) and it was just of average comfort. The staff was present and responsive, but nothing special to comment on. They...

We arrived at the hotel, and once we checked in, with a very friendly, customer centric guest services employee, the great part of our experience was basically over. When we left the lobby, heading towards the elevator, there was the overwhelming stench of Marijuana permeating the air. Now mind you, this is my kids' spring break...this was definitely not how...

When we went to check in, they were having a party in the Mexican Restaurant! You could barely hear the clerk as the music was blasting. Anyways, it was party time at the Clarion. Even though we were on the 11th floor, the top, you could hear the party and everyone on our floor was partying. The place looked like...
