I would love to share the pix I took of this room! The door didn't shut properly because it had obviously been kicked in at some time, trash on the floor, used wash cloth hanging on the shower rod, and remnants of marijuana in the night stand drawer. The desk clerk refused us a refund, and rudely told us to... More

This is the worst hotels in the world. The pictures on the website are nothing like the hotel actually looks. The rooms are so dirty and have holes and cracks in the wall. I was so scared i was unable to sleep because of the constant slamming of doos in the hallways. I fell a sleep for a few minutes... More

Stayed here on the way to Charleston for the week and even decided to stay on the way back home to Philly. Excellent staff! We met four or 5 different staff members and everyone was OUT OF THEIR WAY nice! Must be a great place to work. Certainly an "economy" hotel without a pool and all the fancy amenities, but... More

My family stayed 1 night this past weekend. It is horribly disgusting! Stains on the sheets, nasty pillows, no blankets, mold everywhere. We asked for a blanket and we were told no. Very unsafe due to a sliding door for a window that doesn't lock and no balcony to step on to. Phone rang all throughout the night, I guess... More

This hotel was extremely nasty. Carpets were nasty and stained, smelt like cigarettes, and other guests were very load! Not to mention... Roaches and other small bugs in the bed! Needless to say, I got no sleep. Plus, I'm 8 months pregnant and was told "no" when I asked for extra pillows! How rude! Would not recommend to anyone!

Vey satisfied. Quaint, but for the value can't beat it. We travel to Columbia often and will return just to meet the Staff again. They made our stay very enjoyable. Absolutely recommend!!! For the price you can't beat it.

This was the worst place we have ever stayed at. We were visiting the area for a family reunion and only stayed one night. That was one too many for us. It was nothing like we saw when we check it out on line. The people were not friendly. It looked dirty, but when we got to the room it... More
