Dirty rooms and bed pillows stained. Pulled out nightstand to find outlet and it looked as though no one ever cleaned that area. I am a female and felt I was staying at a truck stop hotel. Was not impressed with breakfast area. Too small and not able to accommodate all guests. I would not recommend if you are a... More

I was here visiting a friend who was in town on business. I was a bit skeptical when I saw the hotel was off the highway but when I got inside I was quickly put at ease. The room he had was very nice and comfortable. I enjoyed every second there. It was clean and very spacious. TV channels were... More

The entire place smells like an ashtray. It's pretty gross (though the hotel it's self is not in bad shape). I woke up every morning with a cough and congestion from breathing in the stale smoke that seems to perpetually linger. Would not stay here again.

We’ve been recurring guests during the holidays and have NEVER experienced such poor service, definitely below your standards. As a frequent guest and club member I am very familiar with them. Here is a recap of our experience: Day: 12-24 keys didn’t work had them updated at front desk. Day: 12-25 came back late to find the room was not... More

We had to switch rooms, as the first smelled of smoke. Staff was nice and did the switch though. 2nd room was clean. Breakfast was hot and had good selections. The hotel had ample parking and was clean. It looked to me like a refurbishment of an existing hotel, but for the price it served it purpose. Close to the... More

We stayed at this hotel last week as sort of a half way point to Charleston. The staff was very nice. The room was clean. The breakfast was not good but they try. The woman working the breakfast was sweet. It's not her fault.

This Holiday Inn Express was and older one but it still was a nice clean Holiday Inn. The location was very good for our stay and the staff was very helpful with everything. The receptionist was able to talk with us about the area and good suggestions for us with dinner.

Stayed here over night while on business trip. Can't really say too much bad about the hotel. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, the hotel was in overall good shape. There was just nothing very impressive about the hotel, especially after I found out that I could have stayed at the Hilton Garden across the street for less... More

A major renovation is needed. $90 for a room, should be $40 at most. Stains on carpet, dusty. Employees not friendly. No welcome, no greeting. No one to be found to check out. Holiday Inn should remove their sign. Anthony from Hotel Impossible needs to visit.

Hotel is tired and in need of a facelift. Room smelt a little musty, you could also smell the smoking rooms all over. The breakfast was a bit inedible - long shelf life/convenience food because there's no kitchen on site (eggs and pancakes on offer but they're out of a box and not fresh). Do yourself a favor by skipping... More
