My family and I were in town for a couple of days. Most all other hotels were booked for Spring Break and upcoming festivities so we found ourselves looking into this Motel 6. The first impression wasn't extremely pleasing but we were getting desperate. Went inside and booked a room. BTW we had to pay $5 for internet. After we... More

There is a police officer on the premises at all times, and the employees ask you not to call the police if you have any noise complaints. That alone should be enough to convince you not to stay here, but if you need more... The floors were so dirty our feet turned black. The rooms are all teensie tiny, have... More

Very comfortable beds and bedding was very clean. Overall, this is a cheap motel and feels like exactly that. Right beside the expressway so it is very convenient. About 30 minutes to Folly Beach, 40 to Kiawah Island. Nice clean pool! If you are looking for a low end hotel, just a place to sleep for the night, this is... More

I stayed on the ground level by choice but I was not actually expecting all of the super neatness and 5 star customer service that I received. They are the most accurate, insightful and professional staff that you come across any day of the week paying 10 times more. The General Manager named Ralph saw to it that all my... More

Well, they've gone up -- from $40 my last stay to $50 today. But, my goodness, they are courteous at the front desk. As you may know, Charleston SC was voted "most courteous" destination in some travel mag, so now all the rude Yankees who moved down here to work the hospitality trade have become Southern gentry; and some of...

This was the third place wifee and I stayed on our 17 day on the ground trip across Georgia, S & N Carolina. This place is hard to find, especially at night. There is a McDonald's right before the driveway to the hotel. A pedestrian walkway between the properties makes it nice to get breakfast. Reggie at the front desk... More

Having read the latest reviews, I was about to cancel my visit. Traveling with my dog, I knew my options were limited for an inexpensive hotel for the night. I wanted a place that was relatively close to the beach, ~20 minutes to Folly, inexpensive, and dog friendly. This Motel 6 met all the criteria. I decided to give it... More
