This was a great hotel, close to the Duke Energy Center. We had a great stay, friendly staff. Davonte Buffin was very kind, took care of us, made sure we had a hot breakfast, fresh coffee. We will definitely come back here again next year for our Archery Tournament.

Jolene and Darlene were very kind, made sure I had everything I needed. The entire staff was very friendly. It was a short drive from the Duke Energy Center where our Archery Tournament was being held. We plan on staying here next year for the tournament.
