This is no way a three star hotel. It was filthy, The staff were friendly but the place was nasty. We had to leave. Their advertisiments were very misleading. Their hot breakfast was just coffee and tea. The pool was closed. Carpet was wet mildew smell. We were very disappointed.

A Mom & Pop category winner! Why pay 2-3 times the amount at the chains when these folks provide the same if not even better. Not sure that all rooms are upgraded but, #101 sure worked for us for 5 nights as we explored Charleston (50 mins) and surroundings. Large rooms, very quiet off the road, super clean, good mattress/pillows,... More

Well I've written 3 reviews about this place so far and this site has either deleted them or some other excuse. Maybe they'll show up. I'm thinking any negative reviews about this sites revenue producers gets the axe! Since I have no desire or time to write a detailed review I'll keep it simple. I was overrun by ticks at... More

I was driving north on I-95, and decided to pull over for the night. I didn't have a reservation, but I knew I was looking for something cheap. I found it. I pulled in about 10:45pm, and walked into the office. A woman, whose name I failed to get, welcomed me. I needed a single room, I told her, and... More

My husband and I stopped on our way to Savannah. We left after work on a Friday for our trip down and hated to spend a lot of money on a hotel we would not even arrive in until 12:00 so we stopped at the Rice Planters. The rooms were old but clean and the clerk was very friendly and... More

We were travelling back from Florida and we were desperate for a room as every hotel along the way was full. We managed to snag a room at this hotel but changed our mind the second after stepping in. The room stank of cigarette smoke. The smell had seeped into every surface making it hard to breathe. Blankets looked old... More

I am so sorry for your inconvenience. It is a non-smolkiing room. I hope that our desk clerk offered you the opportunity to check out one of our other 75 rooms. We are a dated motel, but we do strive to provide a clean room at an affordable rate. Unfortunately, we did not do our job well in this case.... More

I called to book the room by cell phone while driving north on I 95. I spoke with Gail and she confirmed that she would hold a room for me. When I arrived at about 10 PM she greeted me by name, Nice Lady. I had stayed at the Rice Planters Inn back in the 90s and really enjoyed my... More

The room was dated, but clean and comfortable. Blankets were worn, but the sheets were of good quality and the pillows were perfect! For $48.78, the value can't be beat. It even included breakfast at the Waffle House!

Traveling at Christmas holiday time [high traffic] called all coupon motels before this one and they all refused coupon price and had raised prices double and triple. Did not call Rice Planters Inn as it was too cheap so figured it to be a dive. Boy was I wrong it was very clean, our bed was comfortable and we paid... More

Have been staying there for many years while traveling I-95. Always clean, abet a little dated, but clean. There use to be a family owned buffet place next door, that was very good, however it is now closed. Great price, that included a hot breakfast at Waffle House across the street. The breakfast was limited (just can't order anything off... More
