I stayed at this place last night. I thought the room was okay but not really to my liking. You entered all rooms from the outside and I didn't like that. They offered continental breakfast and it was decent. The staff was nice. I would stay somewhere else next time. Not my choice.

Poor wifi connection. I had to play with it for over an hour before I could get the connection to stay up. There was no extra electric plugs for my electronics. The chair was so filthy that I would not set on it. The curtains would not close so I had to get a safety pen to keep them closed.... More

I'll start with the good: My bed was clean and comfortable. That's very important. Now the not so good: There was a brochure in the room stating there was a restaurant and lounge that was open from 5 till 10pm. What I found was neither. I did find 3 people sitting on the lobby furniture. Couldn't tell if two of... More

Booked this hotel for myself and my dog and was very pleased. Room was tidy and clean, bed was nicely made when we came home in the evening. The front desk agent was very helpful and gave great dinner recommendations. The only critique I have is the ice machine needs directions. I stared at it for several minutes looking for... More

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.

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
