This place is a hole. It's an old fashioned motel. To turn on the light in the room, you have to turn on a breaker. The room smelled. The comforters were thin and cheesy. The staff was unfriendly. We asked for a refund and were denied so we left. We filed a claim with our credit card company. For 20$... More

If you are a budget traveler, or even if your not but simply need a decent clean place to sleep for a night I recommend this Budget Host. The rooms are actually more generously sized than many motels and that includes the bathroom. Stayed here the last night on the road coming home from a Florida vacation. This room and... More

After the last 2 nights, this was a gem ... still a low cost motel, but a world away from my previous experiences. Nice quiet location on the riverfront south of Charleston, has a nice restaurant next door. The room was spacious, clean, everything worked, the bathroom has been recently redone, the shower was as good as home, and the... More

As suggested by another reviewer we called the hotel directly. We made our reservation asking for the aarp discount, and a river view room. The person taking the reservation, (I believe the owner), accommodated us with both requests, and was very polite. Upon check-in the registration process was painless. This is an older property, yes, you get a metal key... More

The person who checked me in was surly and very curt. The room seemed very run down. The sheets had a funky smell to them. There were spider webs and other dead insects in the room. My impression was that drifters, weirdos, and other such people stay there. Bottom line: it didn't feel safe. Avoid.

I went into the office to inquire if this hotel had king size beds. The lady at the desk said they do and I asked if she had 2 rooms with King size beds which she said yes. She happened to see my little 5 pound yorkie in the truck which she is certified as a service animal. I told... More

This is the 3rd time we've stayed here over the years and the little motel has never looked better. The rooms have been well maintained & upgraded. Yes - it still has the old tube TV's, but they work. There is now a small restaurant attached to the motel. Last time we were here, that space was vacant. Biggest problem... More

This hotel is surprisingly nice for a budget hotel. The bed is nice and the bathroom is updated. Free (and good) wifi too! We are spending one night here on a road trip and just need a place to sleep before hitting the road in the morning. We will definitely stay here on future trips!
