Hey everybody, I am going to the Panthers / giants game and am looking for a hotel. I know it is late notice and cannot find anything close. I was thinking about the airport area. What I need to know is if this area is safe and which area / road should I park on? Thanks for the Help. Go PANTHERS !!!!

I am also from out of town. Have you tried Crown Plaza on McDowell St ? It's not in the 'real close' category but is only an 8 block walk from the Huddle tailgate on 3rd St. Also, if you don't care about amenities, there is a Days Inn Charlotte City Center a few blocks up Tryon St. - cheap but clean.

Good luck.

If you are a Giant fan looking for NY like attractions there are several "boutique" establishments on Wilkinson blvd near the airport or down on Independence Blvd. if you are a panther fan there are many chain hotels that are less interesting but walking distance to the stadium

Thanks, from what I noticed is that all the ones in walking distance are all booked up. i have been a Panthers fan ever since we got a team. I normally just drive back home to Chatham County, but it would be like 2 or 3 in the morning and don't want to wake the wife and kids.

You can stay with ME SEXY THING.

Well it depends on a few things. If you plan on being sober I would recommend grabbing a hotel around Concord. Should be plenty there because of the NASCAR track. If I've read this correct Chatham is a little south of Chapel Hill so that would get you back towards home. If you plan on drinking enough to need a cab or walk then I don't have any great advice.

If you are able bodied this is a route I like to take for a cheap parking deck. https://maps.google....ia=1,2&t=m&z=18

From this parking deck you have a half mile walk to the stadium's north gate right through all the tailgating action. However none of this is helpful if you plan to drink.

Checked into this dump about 3 in the morning..... Should have know what was going on there, they sell lube and condoms at the front desk.... checked into our room, and with in less than a minute a woman ask if she could use our restroom... I was nice and said yes, after coming out of the bathroom she said her "ride" had left and if I could drop her off somewhere... I told her no, than she ask for money..... I told her I didnt have any... than her responce was she would go DOWN on me and my roomate.... needless to say my roomate told her to get out... The room is filthy, there are mouse droppings on the furniture and in the drawers, the bathroom is disgussting, there is blood on the walls, no alarm clock or remote for the tv (which was snowy) When I checked out the guy at the front desk was on the phone and just grabbed the keys out of my hand and litterally shewed me away... had to go back in to get a receipt....
WARNING STAY CLEAR OF THIS PLACE , YOU TAKE LITTERALLY COULD DIE HERE !!!!
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!

If dowtown is booked try the Four Points Sheraton on Woodlawn. You can take the light rail to town.

Thanks, you are correct Chapel Hill is about 30 mins away. I am roughly 15 miles north of Sanford.

You got kids coming? You can stay at Great Wolf Lodge for $190 and that gets you two days at thier waterpark (The water park is actually pretty fun for big kids too)!

They will be having the Autofair at Charlotte Motor Speedway which starts the same day as the Giants' game, so I am not sure rooms around the Concord area will be that plentiful. I have been staying for years in the University area. The Drury Inn or Hampton are nice places there. However, it is about an 8 mile drive into town. I used to stay in Uptown until the hotels got way too expensive.

That Days Inn is closed. I stayed there once several years ago. I felt a little uneasy when we stayed there.
