Where do I begin? The dirty hand prints smudged across the recently patched walls, the poop on the toilet from the previous tenant, the brown water, the mold, the busted window, the flies buzzing about, the duct taped-AC unit that broke after three hours, the stained carpet, the exposed plumbing in the halls, the missing curtains, the bathroom fan hanging...

My wife and I stayed here while attending a NASCAR race. The room was clean and had new carpet and all appliances worked. The bathroom was in much need of hew drywall and caulking but it was clean. Nothing extra here and they did raise there rates at race time but you will not beat the location to the track.... More

Carpet throughout motel is stained, paint coming off the walls, wood on doors coming off, and spiders on the walls.The plastic cups wrapped in plastic were obviously rinsed out and put back as the cup we unwrapped was wet. Surprisingly the beds were clean and semi comfortable but you can tell the local crack heads stay... More

All the reviews posted from guests here are 100% accurate. We had urine dried on the toilet seat from a previous guest. Our bed sheets had genital and other areas of body hair left on sheet and pillow cases. The management at the hotel need to take some customer service classes as they are extremely rude and even Jay used... More

This place should have been torn down years ago. There is nothing good to write. The room was filthy, stained filthy carpets, bedding was stained (I opted to sleep in my clothes on top of the bed rather than get under the sheets. The toilet didn't work properly, the shower had no pressure, there were holes in the walls ....... More

We booked a king size handicap accessible room. We got a small, non accessible small bed room under the steps. The room was filthy, the toilet was non working, holes in the wall, moldy windows and shower, dirty stained carpet, beds with stains, no hot water. I did get another hotel paid for and upgraded after explaining the ADA regulations... More

This hotel is trash. We stayed here spring 2011 because it was close to Darlington speedway. We thought it was close enough that we could walk, but its not even close enough for that. There were bugs. The free breakfast was a box of dry doughnuts. They never brought extra towels. We ran out of toilet paper and after asking... More

Our stay started with a roach in our room, finished with a backed up toilet, no hot water, no air conditioner. We booked this hotel becasue it was close to Darlington Speedway for two nights. After an awful first night we asked if we could check out early. We were told no. The management was aware of our problems and... More
