We stopped at the Studio & Suites on our way to Outer Banks, NC. We thought it would be a good and affordable place to stop for the evening before finishing our drive. Boy, were we wrong. Immediately upon arrival, we could tell the hotel (which had mostly positive feedback) was not your typical road trip hotel. There were 4-5 cars parked in the unloading zone, blocking it entirely, and the people in the cars were just hanging out and smoking (very obviously not actually unloading anything) . When you walk in the front door, there is a giant cardboard sign that states there is "No parties allowed" and "ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS". There was a group of adult men hanging out in the lobby (which reeked of cigarette smoke), and this group stared at my wife when she walked in to the point where she was extremely uncomfortable. It was very clear this establishment functions more as a temporary housing establishment, and not a traveler's hotel. The lady behind the counter was rude, and spent more time negotiating the price of a bottle of marijuana scented spray with the man in front of us than she did checking us in. Long story short, the atmosphere on our floor and in our room was not any better, as it was noisy and smelled like smoke, and we left the hotel about 30 minutes after getting to our room. Do not stay at this establishment if you are just passing through. May be fine if you know the people and area, but not a comfortable, clean, or welcoming place to stay.
