Hotels Near Charlotte Motor Speedway and zMax Dragway

Where to Stay if You're Headed to Charlotte Motor Speedway

Heading to Charlotte Motor Speedway (formerly Lowe's Motor Speedway) or zMax Dragway for a big race? All of these hotels are the fairly close to the speedway - either within walking distance or just minutes away driving. Of course, these hotels will fill up quickly around big races, so you may have to look elsewhere in Charlotte.

If you find these are full, check out these other nearby hotels:

There are different levels of hotels listed, so I tried to give a price estimate for each property. For the rates listed, I found peak and off-peak pricing, and averaged them. Depending on when you book, and what service you use, your price may vary. But it should fall generally within the range I gave. But obviously, if you're staying during race week, expect things to be on the higher side.

As a side note, all of those hotels are very close...MORE to Concord Mills Mall as well!

    The Embassy Suites Charlotte - Concord Golf Resort & Spa is the "official" hotel of Charlotte Motor Speedway. This 308 room resort is about half a mile from the speedway, so it's within walking distance for most people. It's really the only hotel I'd say is truly close enough to walk. As the name implies, there's a golf course and spa attached, so you know this is a quality property. Many NASCAR drivers and teams actually stay here.

    Great Wolf Lodge is a great family destination. It may be a tad more pricy that other hotels, but that's because here, you get admission to the property's 80,000 square foot water park. And once you figure that into the price, it's a great deal. The hotel has dining and shopping on site, but you're right next to plenty more shopping and restaurants.
