My wife & I were in Greenville for my sons graduation and decieded to save some money by staying here for four nights 12/16-12/20/09. We had stayed here 4 years before and it wasn't too bad at that time. We knew it wasn't the best choice this time but we felt we would be coming back late from our sons apartment and leaving early and only be sleeping & showering there.
We arrived late, 1am. They put us on the second floor near the end, #214, in the rear or middle building facing Red Banks Road. At first we thought that would be great. Out of the way. Back of the property. Quiet. BIG MISTAKE!! HUGE MISTAKE. The first night when we walked up the stairs to the room, the door to the room at the top of the stairs was opened a crack ( no pun on later words ). We thought that was strange but when we finally went to bed, we could here and see cars, taxies and people coming and going all night visiting the "open door room". We figured someone was using the room to sell drugs because by morning the occupant was gone. This room looks well used for this.
The next morning I mentioned what happened last night to the front desk and she said nothing! We paid for another night and hoped for the best. At least the dealings the night before were fairly quiet. Thursday and Friday night were pritty uneventful.
The rooms are in major need of updating, at least in the middle building. Beds were comfortable, plenty of hot water, bathroom was clean although the tub had something all over the floor. There were holes in the chair, holes in the bedspread, holes in the drity curtians, the first alert fire alarm had a plastic bag over it and the heater didn't work on low speed.
Returning to our room on Saturday night late again,1am, we found the parking lot full of cars and people. Mostly African Americans. People coming and going like it was noon. Partying, drinking, swearing and yelling. On the stairwell to the second floor we passed people just hanging out. We got to our room, closed and locked the door, turned the heater fan on hi to mask any outside noise and thought we would have an OK night. NOT!! For an hour it sounded like someone was getting thrown into the walls. The floors and walls were shaking and doors were slamming. Finally at 2am I called the front desk and told her I was calling the police. She said it was the motel employee Christmas party and couldn't stop it. I said "right next to a guest's room?" After further investigation she said the Christmas party was in a different building. She said she had the sheriff right there and he will take care of it. He did quiet it down for a little while. 5am same thing! I called the front office again and she answered " YAH ". Sheriff was sent again.
When we left in the morning there was trash, beer cans, bottles, chicken bones, all over the parking lot including used condoms.
We knew it was a roll of the dice to stay here so we payed one day at a time. After that night and what we found the next morning, we would not have stayed another night nor will we ever stay there again. BUYER BEWARE! YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!
