Simpsonville, SC
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We were very pleased with out 2 night stay. Would have loved to stay longer. We had a 1 bed room suite. The accommodation was very clean and well furnished. The staff was just outstanding especially the mascot, Trevor. It is located with lots of motels and then dining options nearby. Good free Wifi.

Stayed here last night with the wife. It was a Saturday. We arrived about a half hour early but as the room was ready we were able to check in. Fantastic greeting at the front desk, I got a good vibe from the second I walked in the door. Really appreciated the complementary liquid refreshment offered as I booked on...

Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. From the moment we arrived at reception we were made to feel welcomed and looked after. Chile (receptionist as well as Co-Owner) greeted us on arrival and went above and beyond in helping us determine what we would see around Rotorua, even going as far as to provide some discount vouchers for a few...

We had a great stay here with a warm welcome from reception. Arnold and Chili are great hosts. The kids loved the pool especially as it is a salt pool. Will definitely be back. Also great recommendations for the area as well. The Thursday night market was awesome

Our room was small but lovely and clean. It was lovely having the spa in our room and the bathroom was well appointed. We loved having the heat pump as it was hot while we were in Rotorua but our room was lovely and cool. The owners were extremely helpful and knew the area well.
