“Average I85 hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

We stayed here on return from Florida. We did use the coupon book and picked this hotel because the Comfort Inn was full.
First impression was lobby is a bit dingy but desk person friendly. Room ok.
Breakfast was terrible, OJ mostly water and just all around pretty grim.
I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for room in back--if you cannot get one keep driving

Good hotel, but too close to I-95. Ask for room on back of property for less Interstate noise. Internet was fast and breakfast was a little better than expected. Was just fine for the price paid.

Room Tip: Ask for the back.

Although i wish it had a mini fridge, its a very pleasant stay. On our way home in Indiana from Florida, we did not want to drive all the way through. The parking lot is a little dark but I did not feel threatened. A perfect overnight stay or a couple. Not recommended for a longer stay.

Quality Inn SC341., Ridgeland, SC, US, 29936 This hotel is below Choice Hotel standards. The room door locks are not working. At check in I had to return to the desk four times to be assigned different rooms (and carry my luggage up and down a flight of stairs each time) because the keys would not open the doors. I was finally put in a room in which the key still did not work and without a way to get back in if I left the room - I had to have desk staff admit me by master key each time I went to my car, dinner, breakfast etc. On Sunday morning at 7:30 AM all coffee containers in the breakfast room were empty and no one made any attempt to make any until several disgruntled guests complained to the young man working the desk. Some guests were going in and out carrying large stacks of pastries etc to cars or rooms outside. There appeared to be no one attending the breakfast service. The room had an unpleasant odor and there were suspicious dark stains on the bedding. Very poor accomodations even for a bargain price.

Great frendly staff, Super clean room! This hotel is on the old side but it has been very well maintaned. We travel to and from Florida and this is our choice for value and comfort has a great seafood resturant within walking distance.

I didn't check reviews on this hotel and will never stay in one that I haven't checked out. I wore my socks to bed because walking on the carpet and in the bathroom scared me.
The breakfast room is very small, decent breakfast but they ran out of orange juice.
The Comfort Inn was very full so that should tell you something. Pool not open, probably because of the terrible pollen.
Sundays few restaurants are open. Jasper's was closed not sure if it was because of Easter or they just weren't open on Sunday.
We went all the way back to the last exit in GA for a meal.
SC and GA do not sell liquor on Sunday.
