I'll start with the hotel experience directly... Considering their average rate of $80, you'll get what you've paid for. The beds were clean and comfy and the included breakfast was good. But, there were several stray hairs in the bathroom, including on the towels, and burn marks on the dresser (though it was a non smoking room). We couldn't hear our neighbors, but anytime a toilet flushed it sounded like water was running through our room. Our room (315) and the hallway were incredibly hot and even though we cranked the cold air it was still stuffy. The hallway walls had dents in them with shoddy patchwork.
Now the price issues... We weren't sure we wanted to stay in Mt Pleasant but I had checked prices on Friday, just in case. Rooms here were going to be $107 for a room w/one queen bed or in the $120s for a room with two queens, per their website and per Expedia (I just looked for next Saturday and they're only in the $80 range). Saturday early evening, after fun at the casino, I called to book a room and was told it would be $149 plus tax (total over $160). When I questioned the price difference the clerk told me "I don't know what you saw online but this is the only room we have and probably the only opening in town." We needed a place to stay, so we took the room. But for that price, I expected MUCH better conditions than what this hotel has.
I'm not sure how these price fluctuations are legal? Convenience stores can't price gouge gas, but hotels can double their rates when there is an event in town? Doesn't make much sense to me.
Would we stay here again? For $80, sure. But it is NOT worth any amount over that.
