“Quick Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Good value for what we were looking for-to grab a few hours sleep on our way to Florida!
Check-in was quick and friendly and the person checking us in gave us a room that made our leaving early in the morning very easy! I would stay there again!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We stayed in this hotel as we were driving to FL from Delaware to FL. We were tired and so pulled into Florence without any reservations. All other hotels were booked, so we ran in and this location had a few rooms still available. We were a little worried considering the outside appearance of the hotel, in addition to it's insanely dated lobby. But, we were tired and the clerk was very nice. We got a King room on the second floor for $65. There were stains on the ceiling as well as sofa. The bathroom grout was stained and everything was extremely dated, 1970's era. Having all of these negatives, there was not a speck of dirt that I could find (and trust me I looked!) Sheets were very clean and matress was comfortable. We slept fine and were able to continue our journey in the morning. Would I stay there again with an option? No - but was it an overall clean place that offered a good nights rest - absolutely!

My family and I were heading to Florida and this was an overnight stop only. I know that renovations were going on, but the continental breakfast was not that great. The general condition of the grounds was on the shabby side, and I think that the Christmas decorations could have been removed by now. I did not like the main lobby set up as far as distance to the room from the lobby.
