“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

This hotel was wonderful i stayed a week with my 2 dogs the only issue we had was the power went off twice but they fixed it right away and apologized a million times and even put us in another room for the night while the power was out. The house keepers came by everyday to see if we needed anything the front desk called a few times to make sure we was enjoying our stay. The MGR was amazing she knew what she was doing unlike the guy at North Charleston. Id recommend it to anybody thats looking for a cheap room

Full of roaches. The WIFI does not work. The people in the lobby hang up the phone to guests if they try to complain about any problem with the room. The police arrived during our stay to arrest people here. After I complained to the Motel 6 guest relations they sent a letter to the general manager Darlene Lawrence probably expecting for her to appologize about our problems here, however she did nothing.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The Red Roof Inn in Hilton Head is closer to the beach and is the same price. Better hotel!

Room Tip: Customer service at this hotel is the worst. They absolutely do not care about the guests and they a...

It's only $43.99 a night plus tax which comes out to around $52. They charge a few dollars extra for 24 hour access to the wireless internet connection.

I was here two nights, and the traffic noise of I-526/Highway 17 directly across from the motel didn't even bother me half as much as the constant noise the other people staying here made. Only saying that to say this: people staying here have absolutely no respect for other people at all. The front desk staff was apologetic and said they were "probably construction workers." I doubt it. Just people with nothing better to do than get drunk and keep everyone else up all night.

The single room I was in was very basic. A bed, dresser, TV, bedside table, desk and chair. No mini refrigerator which I expected there to be, but I got over it. I liked the design of their shower, kind of a rounded shape to it. The mattress on the bed was average quality.

Basic is quite acceptable but unclean is not acceptable. Couldn't stand barefoot on carpet. Under beds not been hoovered for some time. Dirty fridge surround, beds not properly made and no tea and coffee making facilities. Reception staff very friendly and shower nice and powerful but the musty smell in room made for uneasy sleeping. Stayed last fortnight in superb motels but will not be staying in another Motel 6 in the future. Wi if was extra!

Room Tip: Pay a few dollars more and stay somewhere with facilities.

This seemed like a nice motel and location and price were good. However, this was the smallest room I have ever seen for a double. For both beds, you could only get out on 1 side! We had to ask for towels and wash cloths, soap, and glasses every day, Not sure they did anything except make the bed. Don't expect a lot at Motel 6, but basic cleaning and restocking should be normal. We stayed 2 nites and moved on. Was ok, but not great. Think service could use a boost.

Nothing fancy, just the basic bed and loo... If you don't need much, just a cheap place to crash for the night while on the road, this is an OK place to do so. A bit of road noise from the highway, but overall clean and safe.

This is consistent with the majority of my motel 6 experiences. Fairly clean, central location, GREAT price and easy access in and out, not to mention the energy efficient business that all motel 6s currently are a part of. Oh, and welcoming to our friendly and well behaved pit bull. What more could we ask for?!? Everything you need and nothing you don't. Don't expect some fancy hotel or even a holiday inn. This is a motel 6. Get with it.
