Does the front desk get trained??? they often were not able to answer questions about the area or the hoteland every time I went up there they were either... More

All of the reviews about the neighborhood have nothing to do with the actual hotel and service they provide. This isn't necessarily a great hotel for family's, but I was here on business for a week and had no issues with the "neighborhood". The employees and management are doing the best they can for what they are given. The hotel... More

As long as a place is clean, I am usually satisfied. This place looked clean but SMELLED HORRIBLE!! I literally looked under the bed to see if there was a corpse. Breakfast - on the website that I found this hotel it said it was $2.50 per person. Actually changed to $5 but not updated on all websites. So we... More

While it was greatly priced and we just did a quick stop there on our way to Hilton Head, SC, it definitely looked super sketchy. We were glad that we only stood there late at night. It did the trick but I would have never stood there if it wasn't a quick stop. The good points - it's very close... More

Checked into hotel on May 27,2014, checked my sheets as soon as I got up to my room and saw urine and semen stains all over the bed spread. Asked to change room, checked second room and found the same thing. Also saw bug particles around corner of mattress! Place is disgusting! Don't waste your time or money

I made the mistake of reserving a 2-room, 2-night stay in this dump for nearly $500.00 for myself and 3 travel companions. All the pictures on their site did not show the run down dangerous neighborhood, the interstate that was practically straddling this property, the 4-lane train tracks that ran behind, the 5-lane road in front, or the incredibly rude...

We stayed here for an inexpensive hotel to see Charleston. Poor neighborhood...sirens all the time.. next door to bus station. The towels were paper thin..really need to replace. Didn't choose the breakfast option. We went into Charleston. Would not recommend this place.

We needed an affordable hotel close the Folly Beach and this hotel looked OK online at a great price. There is a reason for that great price. When we arrived, at prime check in time, they were steam cleaning the tiles in the lobby. And the hall in front of the elevators. There was not only water everywhere, it was... More

Convenient drive to downtown Charleston. Pool appeared clean. No breakfast provided. Room clean. Comfy bed. Shady neighborhood. Unpleasant 'sewer' smell outside of the establishment. Staff friendly......
