The overall stay was average because we loved the southern food, but the room left a lot to be desired. We arrived pretty late in the evening and this was one of the few places in Florence with any rooms left. The front desk staff was very friendly. She directed us to our room (in front of the pool) and... More

Where do I even begin. They have roaches but don't bother complaining. You'll be told "you're in south Carolina so they're everywhere". Um...no...just your motel. (The pictures are dark due to the lack of lighting in the rooms). Checkout is 12 but housekeeping will bang on your door (despite the do not disturb sign) at 9am so don't try to... More

This is my favorite hotel in the entire country, and I have been all over the country. I was thoroughly charmed by the fact that the rooms were not faced toward the outside. When you walk up to your room, you walk over carpet-covered floors to a room that is in an inner hallway, like the old apartments. I felt... More

I can't believe in this day and age the condition of the Thunderbird Inn! It was the worst hotel experience we have had in a long time. Partly because we took the bait of a great deal from Hotwire and are quite disappointed that they even have a place like this in their repertoire!! They compare it to Comfort Inn... More

We have been stopping by this restaurant for years and from time to time we would have to select another plate because of a plate still containing hardened food. But today's experience was absolutely horrible.. We pulled down 4 plates before finding a clean one, or at least one that didn't contain food. The little bowls also had dirty bowls.... More

Not for families or couples, more of a trucker/construction worker over nighter . Very dated; non-smoking room smelled of smoke, furniture also; TV, but nothing else, and very noisy outside. We missed the breakfast that was set up until 10:30, was closed at 10:20; kitchen staff was leaving when we arrived for breakfast, so it was shut down way before... More
