“Check under the Bedspread for human waste”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2010

We have stayed at this location many times, The rooms are generally clean, but never spotless or without need of repair. This time there even was someone left over hash brown if the night stand drawer and someones used bar of soap in the shower. if you say something to the manager, he imediately says that the room is up to Days Inn standards and he is sorry it does not meet our standards. The room had everything from claw marks by the door from someones pet to a melted clock radio when someone decided to use it as an ashtray, When I brought it to the attention of the front office, I was asked what did I do to the radio! The personnel at this hotel seem to have a chip on their shoulders rather then helping the customer they rather confront them and argue what a clean room is and how they meet all the days inn standards. Go 20 miles in either direction and you will find a cleaner room at a better rate off I-26

Nothing special, but good quality, good location, breakfast okay (very weak coffee). Worth a stop if in the area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2008

We stayed at this hotel overnight on our way to Myrtle Beach, SC. We have a 2 year old, so it is much easier to drive halfway. We wanted to stop outside of Ashville and really had no preference for our hotel, since we were only going to be in it for a few hours to sleep. We checked in at 12:30 am. The parking lot was full of out of state vehicles, so this must be a popular traveler hotel. Our room was $98, a little pricey, but it was clean, quiet and the beds were comfortable. This hotel is right off the interstate, so it is easy to get to and from. The complimentary breakfast is standard, but nice if you are not big on breakfast and eager to get back on the road.

  • Liked — Proximity to interstate and cleanliness
  • Disliked — A little pricey for what it was

Clean room with microwave & refrigerator. The mattresses were very comfortable and seemed to be fairly new. Really slept well. Most of the hotel rooms seem to be non smoking which was great for us! Stayed here a week and the breakfast was ok. We supplemented with oatmeal that we provided as waffles & bagels/muffins/donuts get old fast. Fruit while we were there was just apples. But all was clean, well stocked & working properly. Would stay here again.

  • Liked — Comfortable mattresses
  • Disliked — lack of fruit options at breakfast

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2006

We stayed over for one night on our way back to SC. The room was clean (my main concern) and comfortable. The staff was polite and friendly. There are no frills at this motel but you can't beat the price for a clean place to stay. I believe we paid approx. 41.00 for the night. The continental breakfast is cereal, doughnuts and English muffins, juice and coffee. We chose to eat breakfast elsewhere, but did have several cups of coffee which was good.

Stayed November 2006

Columbus is the first town in North Carolina that one comes to when driving north on I-26 from Charleston or the South Carolina beaches. It is a pleasant little community though the choices for either lodging or food leave a great deal to be desired. An exception to that statement is the town’s Days Inn which sits high on a pretty hillock surrounded by trees and completely cut off from the hustle and bustle of either the freeway or the many fast food restaurants that abound on seemingly every corner. There are no king- or queen-bedded rooms but the two double beds that we had in our room were comfortable and very restful. There are also no refrigerators—a seeming standard in motels across the country these days—and the Quick Start breakfast offers little more than cold cereal, doughnuts, and coffee. The very thoughtful staff is, however, quite anxious to please. There are few luxuries to be found at this Days Inn—indeed, at most Days Inns—but most folks don’t stop at one for that reason and probably no one will be displeased who chooses the Columbus location which, the day we were there, was packed with tourists off of the Interstate.
