Econolodge Review Definite recommendation. Puts economy into lodging without sacrificing necessities. Friendly, accommodating staff. Clean look, smell and feel rooms. Stayed two nights during NBA weekend for reasonable regular rates. Our non-smoking king bedroom was larger than the queen by a bedside table and a loveseat with coffee table. Minifridge, microwave, hairdryer, coffee maker, TV. Breakfast of breads, cereal, fruit cup, beverages—not fancy but filling. McD+ close, but recommend Cookhouse just beyond motel for family southern cooking restaurant. In light traffic, about half-hour to downtown Charlotte. Pet rooms available. Fully booked, but still parking for many towed boats on trailers.

Room was one of the pet friendly rooms. It was terrible! The furniture was beaten up, the beds were bad and the sheets wouldnt stay on the mattress. To find out you have been sleeping partly on the mattress is really gross. We had to wipe out the drawers of the dressor before putting any clothes in. Our room was right behind the outdoor pool and the slamming gate. We are evacuees from the New Bern area, already stressed, and wasbtold we couldnt be moved to a better room. We reserved for 3 nights but left after the first night. I will never stay in an Econo Lodge again. Found a room at the Candlewood Suites in Mooresville and having a wonderful experience....and they waived the pet fee for evacuees. Great customer service!

Avoid this nasty health hazard

Ruined our whole trip to see our kids and grandkids in town. Turned down bed at 11: 30 PM to find pubic, dog and human head hair in sheets and blanket. Had to go to front desk to get new bedding and change myself. Staff was OK,but only willing to waive $15 pet fee. Was told I could have asked for another room. Why woud I do this at almost midnight--- Maybe to find another unhealthy room.? Should have demanded comp price and called health dept. BTW--if you get a pet room here, you can only sleep in room on I-77 side of motel, about 50 yards from endless traffic noise.

BEWARE!! AVOID!!!

Dirty showers, Water leak under sink, Oders in the room , Unfriendly, Unprofessional staff, No variety at breakfast, the list goes on and on . This was the worst hotel I have stayed in, in any of my travels to anywhere at anytime ! Do yourself a favor and dont stay here. The best part of my stay was when I left !!

overpriced

We stayed during race weekend and it is very overpriced for the type of motel. Vending machines were all empty the entire 3 day weekend. Front desk personnel said they couldn't do anything about it.
