It's hard to write a review on somewhere that you haven't actually stayed. We booked through our travel agent as a budget stop between Charlotte and Hilton head Island. And it was about $58 (£30 ish). First impressions weren't great but my confidence wasn't great after meeting the two Indian chaps who ran it. The room decor was dated and... More

The lobby has a funky smell and the exterior is pretty bad......BUT my room was perfect. Bed was comfortable, room was clean and very quiet, WIFI was super fast. The service was courteous. This is perfect for my needs...don't really care about that other stuff, just give me a great room with GOOD WIFI for cheap and I am happy... More

As I stayed there during the winter months, I can't rate the pool area. However, the room, parking lot & services is something I will comment on. I believed the room clean when I checked the bathroom, floors & furniture Didn't see any roaches but, got a big surprise when I woke up from working all night & an hour... More

I need to start by saying that Mr. Desai, the manager here, was about as pleasant and accommodating as any lodging manager I have ever met. If the review was based on his effort/intentions alone, the rating would be Excellent. One problem with the motel is that the driveway is a poorly maintained, small turnoff from a very busy road,...

When we drove up on the lot there was 1 car in the parking lot. I now know why, this place is a dump! the pictures on the internet are from a different era. I will be happy to share the bad photos of this place. I was greeted by a teenager runing the front counter. We had our little... More

Centrally located on I26 just Northwest of I20, plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Also a large parking area for larger vehicles. Plenty other restaurants deliver to hotel as well. No vending machines except for soda machines on premises. Breakfast the next morning is kinda weak but the do offer something.

Terrible smell in lobby (and room). Booked room with kind bed - no king - Did not appear clean - beds were horrendous - no hair dryers - no internet - no "Microfridge" - False advertising at it's finest.This chain should be embarrassed to have this facility using its name.
