Front desk staff very accommodating and friendly.

Pros: Staff, location, efficiency -- everything worked, things need a facelift but it all worked -- the wifi, the showers, the a/c etc
Cons: Just cleaning up the rugs, the public surfaces, locking the doors on the floors
Location: Location is fine, airport hotel, nearby neighborhood pleasant to walk in.
Overall, the property needs new rugs, like most properties of its kind, difficult to keep fresh. Also, if I were traveling alone, I would not have appreciated the fact that the doors to the various floors was never locked though looked as though they required a key for access.

Convenient location

Pros: Convenient location right off highway, price and clean room.
Cons: Mattress could be replaced. One side had a dip toward the center.
Location: Nearby NASCAR Hall of Fame. Waffle House within walking distance. Also a hibachi restaurant across from the Waffle House.
There were a lot of people out on their balconies and sidewalks when we arrived. Kinda of nervous about safety, but they have a security guard. Not a lot of available parking. Check in and out was great. Room was spacious clean and quiet. Bathroom was about the size of a cruise ship bathroom, but very clean. Definitely good for a 1or 2 night stay.

Great price, fair performance considering

Pros: Close to airport; shuttle service; comfortable mattress; reasonable overnight parking for the week; price.
Cons: Motel is wore-out - needs updating. Then again, this is EconoLodge.
Location: Flight was very late, so, all-night restaurants were only 10 min away.
Hotel is dated and needs a face-lift - if not, at least pressure washing; staff was ok; room was located adjacent to major highway with lots of noise; not much to offer in food-vending machines; with exception of waffles (which stuck to skillet) continental breakfast consisted mostly of dry foods, i.e., cereal, bread products, etc. - attendant snatched food away in record time.

Lady at front desk

Lady at front with short hairstyle is sooooo nice and friendly. That's always great walking into a stay, it starts at the front with a smile and welcoming so she was awesome. The room was clean and I loved the setup, Overall it was awesome!!! I would definitely stay again. I was smiling walking in and sad to leave, I'd stay here a week if ever needed.

nice basic accommodations...

Cons: fitness room was a bit spartan, and the treadmill loud enough it got noise complaints from the airport next door :P
Got there and the room we had reserved was still occupied and/or not yet cleaned and readied...beds a mess TV going full blast, but no one there! Staff swiftly moved us up one floor to a room similar and no problems at all. Nice basic bkfst. buffet and well stocked. GREAT lady at front desk, real personable . Two internet stations at front desk area if needed. we were there on a pleasure trip...I was dropping my wife at the airport! (da-da Boom!) So I needed a bed and a bath and a shuttle to the CLT airport and a decent breakfast bar ,not fancy but filling, whats to complain?

Nice hotel

Pros: It was overall a clean and the people where really nice.
Cons: They need to make sure people cannot get back in their rooms to take showers once they have left.
Location: It was close by to the stadium, hospital, and other attractions downtow.
The hotel was really nice except it looked like someone had came in and took a shower and left. There was a black bar of soap and two dirty washcloths in the bathroom. Other than that, the room was really clean.

The hotel offered park and fly.

Pros: The park and fly option and easy access to the interstate. When we left our car the driver to the airport was friendly.
Cons: Better coffee and an overall freshen up .
Location: We were there for 6 hours.
The hotel offered park and fly for a dollar a day and is close to the airport. Due to a flight delay we arrived at 2:00 AM and had to take a taxi to the hotel. Check in took about 15 minutes and our room was located 50 yards from the interstate with a lot of highway noise. The breakfast bar closed promptly at 8:30 and had the worst coffee possible. After 14 hour of travel it just met our needs.
