Worst hotel I've ever stayed at. Throw up in stairs and halls. People smoking throughout stairs. Night auditor says he doesn't clean up throw up but will report to housekeeping tomorrow. Never again. This is for a kids soccer tournament.

While in area for North Carolina Barbecue Society BBQ Boot Camp, I stayed two nights. Upon late arrival I was greeted with a smiling, helpful attitude. Comfortable beds. Breakfast was slight on content but enough to hold one until lunch.

We'd run races Saturday morning and were prepping for another on Sunday, and we desperately needed a late-afternoon nap--partially from post-race exhaustion, and partially from a less-than-stellar hotel stay (in South Carolina) on Friday night.

I really like this hotel except one thing and it made our stay very unpleasant !!!!On the third floor, smoking rooms are across from nonsmoking on all the wings so it's very hard to breathe and your eyes water and you feel very miserable on the way to your room. Three of my friends and I stayed overnight and all...

This was a last minute booking for my family and I who were traveling with pets after learning a nearby property we originally booked did not accept pets.

It was close to restaurants & in easy distance of local attractions. The only problem was that we found two roaches in our room over the course of 8 days. The desk did apologize and gave a discount on our stay. Overall, they were very decent.

Average hotel, clean enough but could use a deep cleaning; dirty behind beds, etc. Furnishings a bit worn. The kitchenette was nice to have, and the rooms had plenty of space. Very friendly and helpful staff.
