Friendly staff. Very willing to help with any requests. Original room was very spacious and updated but smelled very smoky and musty. Had to move to a different room that smelled better but had an old fashioned 19" TV (haven't seen those for a while). Beds were very not comfortable and felt like sleeping on a board. Nothing posh about... More

We only stayed here one evening of a long drive, but were very satisfied with the staff and the cleanliness of the facilities. We will stop here again on a future Northern trip. The breakfast was adequate and the room very comfortable.

This hotel as well as the other "maingate" hotels in the area are actually an interstate drive away from Fort Jackson. It was a quick trip but lots of traffic. The hotel is nice though the area seemed a little sketchy. Lots of police sirens and speeding cruisers. Our room as well as the whole facility needed maintenance. The only... More

This is an ordinary hotel in a convenient location. Good enough for an overnight stay. We all know the drill for an ordinary motel in an ordinary setting. The same architect did them all. Good enough.

We had read so many bad reviews about this hotel, we were reluctant to stay and almost changed our reservations! We arrived about 8:45 pm on Aug 20 and were very tired from a long drive. When we checked in, I was quoted the total price but it was not the price I had been quoted initially. The night clerk... More

We needed a quick eldest so we could finish the other half of our trip. The late night staff was friendly and helpful. Cleanliness was as expected and the rates were affordable. My only complaint is the bed and pillows. The bed was hard, like brick hard. Also the pillows were like throw pillows on a couch. Fix this and... More

We were traveling with two children, an 18 and a 3 month old. My mother and I went into the lobby to check us in while the mother and children waited outside in the rain.

As usual the front desk personnel were helpful and delightful. The lobby is clean and inviting. Parking is inadequate near the front entrance and one is forced to trek around the building to get in. my room was clean and in good order. Now to the items that keep it from being a 4 or 5 rating. 1 Queen Bed,... More

The front desk manager (I think her name is Vera), had a [--] attitude. My bed was hard as a rock, so I got maybe 3 hours sleep. I asked her if they had a cushioned mattress pad, but she said they didn't. When I returned from touring the sites, I asked a different manager and she gave me a... More
