“Clean and cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We staying in two Budget Host Inns on our trip to Myrtle Beach (there and back), both were chosen because of reviews on Tripadvisor. I've got to say, I was so impressed by the value of both properties. For stopovers, especially with an infant, all you want is something clean and affordable and this is what you will get. Immaculate rooms. The Charleston property also has a nice view of the river and mountains. The owner of Charleston BHI wasn't as friendly as his peer down in Wytheville, but still obviously cares about his business and maintaining his property for his customers. The only thing I would say that was a minor inconvenience, would be the big production it is to get to the main strip where all the restaurants and gas stations are, at least according to Google maps.

Room Tip: The river view is nice.

My boyfriend and I are staying at this hotel and even with changing rooms found this place to be very clean with a river view that is simply beautiful! And the tugboats going by are an added plus The staff here go out of their way to make your stay nice. Clean towels and beds. Cameras around the property for safety. And the parking lot and grounds kept neat and trash free. We would highly recommend this hotel. And will continue to stay here as long as the job requires. You won't find a better value anywhere else in Charleston.

This little inn is clean, inexpensive, and you get a view of the water traffic on the Kanawa River to boot (ask for a waterfront room). All of the rooms have been remodled. The television has a good number channels and reception is clear. The hot water is hot and instant with good pressure. The rooms have refigerators. The Anchor Inn bar and restaurant is next door.

Motel is right on the river, you could fish from your room! Room was clean and smelled good. There is an attached restaurant / bar. Home made food was real good, folks are nice. We travel 77 from MI to Fl several times a year this is the first time I have felt compelled to write a motel review. Even my wife thought it was good! I'm not giving it 5 stars as compared to a high priced hotel but for what it is we are going to keep this one in mind on our next trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the river side

We also stayed here during the power outage. We didn't pay the high price like you though. Our online rate was around $50. The manager did not handle things appropriately, i agree. However they were nice enough people. It wasn't his fault that the power went out. We slept with the window open since we had no A/C. seemed like a safe area. It is next to a busy road that is noisy though. The rooms have a microwave and fridge.

Room Tip: get far away from the road if that is possible. The road is noisy/busy.

You people are crazy that are even giving this hotel one positive comment. For one, the manager and wife? were very unfriendly and as stated in previous reviews, hard to understand. They were not reasonable at all. I made the reservations online and when arriving, found out that the power was out due to a storm. Instead of refunding my money since the hotel could provide zero amneties due to no power, the hotel manager said he couldnt do that due to me making the reservation online. After finally reaching corporate, they told me to speak to the property manager. I didn't do the run-around. I paid 85 bucks for a room I didn't stay in. I am taking legal process right now. This is not a lie. My email is jasonczerr1@yahoo.com if anybody wants to ask me about it. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!
