Had to go to Walmart to buy my own sheets & towels! Room was not cleaned before we were given the key. Urine all over the toilet! Beyond gross. Picture shown is NOT the hotel you will stay in. Roaches crawling out of the shower. No updates made to the place since maybe the 70's? Towel rack ripped off the...

People fussing and fighting walking around and shouting . Cops came out at 2:30 am so no rest there . The rooms are very poor . Yellowed sheets with stains and holes . Wire running every way they could to make things work . A girl told us the cops were called about every night there .

The hotel was a few miles off of the highway. That should have been my first clue. The staff that greeted us was nice, but the room was old and dirty. It also reeked of cigarette smoke. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

The rooms seemed okay. Smell like old water. People are everywhere, no parking spaces. NIGHT TIME!! DO NOT GO OUTSIDE. 1. THE MAN THAT WORKS OVER NIGHT IS VERY SCARY! He just stands there, staring. Creepy. 2. Seems to be a high drug area! I think the front desk man runs the whole deal! Just creepy!

I have stayed in this hotel several times in the past I agree with the other reviews but now there's new owners and they are renovating the whole hotel.Evidently the people that wrote about the bad part of town are not from Gastonia. It's in a quiet part of town right across from a church. I would say that is...

I drove up to the place and had a feeling it was going to be bad. I checked into my non-smoking room. The moment I walked in there was a waft of the stale smell of smoke, so it probably used to be a smoking room. No hangers, one of the towels had holes and stains on it, the wash...

So I stayed there for 3 nights during the race weekend and you get what you pay for. I just stayed there during the night because I was gone during the day doing stuff. But the rooms was decent. The WIFI was spotty. The Air worked good. The only thing that I didn't like about was where the location of...
