I ordered a non-smoking room and was given one that was obviously a smoking room, including an ashtray. I received a 2nd room, this time with a non-smoking placard and no ashtray. However, the smoke smell was string, masked by a strong air freshener. Yuck. The sink faucet was loose in the sink (the whole faucet assembly). The desk chair... More

We needed a room near Palmetto Heart Hospital during the weekend of the Gamecocks games. Although we needed 2 nights, they had one available and Todd totally took care of us. Not only did he give us a discount because he saw how stressed we were, he also found us another hotel for the next night! He was so kind... More

I would've given a rating of "very good" for this hotel except the pool was green and one of the lights inside the pool was hanging off. Also outside areas could us some maintenance. Having said that, our room was clean and comfortable; linens of good quality. Not a flat screen but the tv worked fine. I was a little... More

I am in SC every couple of weeks and after staying one weekend in an absolute hovel, I found this motel tucked on the side of an industrial area near I-26 and was very pleasantly surprised. The entrance and parking lot was very clean, the walk to the front door reminded me of hotels I've stayed at in Morocco with... More

We tried to get into our room but the lock kept showing red. The front desk clerk reworked the key cards and they still would not open the door. I went back a second time to the front desk and this time the clerk brought a device to correct the lock mechanism when he came with me to the door.... More

Beds were clean and comfortable and the staff seemed pleasant enough. We had a brand new refrigerator, decent microwave and TV. There is quitea bit of space for dogs to run outside. But the place needs lots of maintenance. The first room had a broken door lock and major ceiling water damage that was flaking off. The room we moved... More

I am very unpleased with my stay at the Clarion Inn. Upon arrival, there were allegedly only smoking rooms left despite our reservation for a non smoking room. We were upgraded to a non smoking double suite. Unknowingly, this suite has had various issues and had recently been "fixed". The AC unit leaked halfway through our front room and gave... More

This place looks like it was nice at one time. The exterior presents a better image than the room we got. The girl at the front desk assigned us a room then said, "Would you like a room with a fridge and microwave?" "Sure!" She changed our room number and we looked forward to our fridge and microwave. When we... More

Mr. Shah was outstanding in accommodating our family on an earlier arrival due to Hurricane Arthur on 4th of July weekend. Housekeeping helped us with our bags and helped us to get set up with the kids. There was a nice pool and gym onsite that we took full advantage of also. The breakfast was continental but for an additional... More

I spent two nights at this hotel last weekend (may 9th and 10th) to attend USC'S graduation. The rooms are small but nicely decorated. Carpet, drapes and bedding were nice. Tile and baseboard tile in particular needed to be replaced in the bathroom. Slight smell in the bathroom,maybe because seal around the bottom of the toilet was crumbling. Beds were... More
