Stayed 2 nights on a recent visit to family and chose this property due to its proximity to local family. The room has everything you need - a multitude of electrical outlets, phone/ipod jacks, couch & chair, plus a rolling table/desk with desk chair -- nice to use for work or to roll over to the seating area.

This is a budget hotel at $200+/night. I've stayed at a couple of this chain and this property meets those expectations with a clean room, good bedding and towels, nice TV etc. I liked the extra space that provided a small couch and bar sink with microwave and fridge. The staff were helpful and attentive. What led me to rate... More

Stayed here for a month when on business visit. Service, cleanliness, staff are all good. But it falls short of greatness and wowness. Rooms are neat and clean but a little more attention to detail would have helped. On the study table there were no other stationary except pen and a small pad! Something I haven't experienced anywhere else before.... More

Stayed here for two nights ahead of a family wedding. After checking the Tripadvisor reviews of budget motels nearby we settled on this HI Ex. No bargain, but after a transatlantic flight we didn't want to compromise on quality. We weren't disappointed.

The first Holiday Inn that I stayed was the one in Arizona, it was very nice so that I reserved this one for my SC visit, and as expected, my one week stay here was enjoyable too. Free breakfast every morning was decent and good enough for me, including soy bean soup of Japanese style could have been relief for... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights (5\21 to 5\24\14) while visiting California. The room was clean and the beds were comfy. It is not the fanciest hotel but it was clean, and that is most important to me. The hotel staff was courteous and accomodating. I would definitely stay here again.

location is very easy from SC airport. Well priced for SC at ~$150. Has a pool and the rooms are large. The AC does not really have a temp monitor so it is either full on or full off (noisy). Basic breakfast is included and staff i svery helpful. Overall a quiet location.

The room was large, the staff good, and it's super clean. The only drawback is that it's close to an in town freeway. The driveway comes up quick and the traffic behind you is moving fast, turn quick.
