Staff were friendly and the room was clean and attractive - lots of pillows and cable stations available. In spite of a large high school group, guests were assigned rooms that ensured a quiet night.Restaurants are in walking distance.

Pet friendly main selling point. GMgr is a Mr. Patel. Ceiling needed repair, and the effects of being an older property showed. Bathroom was a poorly done patch job, with the toilet only 12“ off the floor. Their breakfast offering was on the light side, and not presented very well. But the coffee was putrid. Not vad, but there are... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times in the past, it had become a little worn but has recently been updated and nicely. This hotel services military families visiting the nearby Fort Jackson so it gets a lot of traffic, but well kept. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they know the area very well and can be...

My family and I traveled to SC and stayed at this hotel since it allowed pets. We were very pleased that it was clean and the staff were friendly . Easy access to food etc. Breakfast was average but fine. I was very wary because of not knowing anyone that had stayed in this area and so it was strictly... More

Not as clean as we had hoped. Bathroom was worn and tired...in need of maintenance. Coffee splashed on walls near sink area look old, nobody bothered to wipe it. Also, if you are sensitive to fragrance, beware...heavy smell of chemical cleaners. I had a headache after 10 minutes in the room. I'm sure that is from the allowance of pets.... More

Wonderful for traveling with our dog. Great breakfast, friendly staff, and very clean rooms. Very reasonable rates especially since there is no charge for pet deposit or cleaning fee. Hotel was just off I - 77 and there was even a Starbucks at the same exit

Check-in/check-out experiences were painless, and staff was friendly. Decent free breakfast. Pet friendly. Clean rooms. Bathrooms are equipped with toilet and tub/shower. Sink area separate so two people can get ready at the same time. Our room had a Microwave, mini-fridge and a 32 inch flat panel tv. Beds were big (but a friendly warning...very firm). Drink vending machines on... More
