Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Sonesta Simply Suites Charlotte University

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Great Extended Stay Hotel"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The htoel is a few miles east of UNCC and sits off WT Harris Blvd. It is a quiet and remote area with plenty of easily accessible parking. The entrance has two small lobby's and a security door for evenings. Breakfast is not included because each room has a fully equipped kitchen. All 122 rooms have one king sized bed with pull-out sleeper sofa, handicapped rooms available. The rooms are nicely appointed in neutural colors whites and beige. The kitchen area is extremly nice with black cabinets, microwave, refrigerator, and 2 burner flat top surface stove. Includes all dishes and cooking utinsels. The room is very spacious and extremely clean, with good lighting. The hotel has the Candlewood Pantry in which you can purchase snacks and additional items for extended stays. In the same area is complimentary laundry facilities and an exercise room. The exercise equipment is a little older, but I was told it will be getting replaced in the near future. Although there are not any restaurants within walking distance, there are many options just a short drive away. All rooms are non-smoking, and the hotel does have designated pet rooms. No weight restrictions but there is a non-refundable deposit. Overall I give this hotel a very high rating for an extended stay hotel. It was very nicely appointed, in a serene area which is easy to get in and out of.

Verified Reviews of Sonesta Simply Suites Charlotte University

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Never Again"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The photos on line showed an updated, clean, spacious room. Turned out to be just the opposite. The kitchen chairs were stained and the pleather was peeling off. The dishes in the dishwasher had hardened food on them. The kitchen and bathroom drawers were dirty and timeworn. The room smelled of cigarettes and weed. The chairs, couch and rugs were stained, worn and stunk. The bed had hairs on it! Paint was chipped/worn on the walls and cabinetry. Rust was apparent on the vents, door jams and soap dispenser in the shower. The fan in the bathroom was extremely loud. We left after one night and, although they refunded us for the remaining nights, we should have been fully refunded.

"Outside concerns at night."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Very good clean hotel with friendly knowledgable staff. My only concern was when going to my car, there were people around the outside by my car smoking marijuana. It may be legal in some states but it presented a concern to my family and myself. Otherwise, it was a good experience.
