We phoned ahead and made reservations to ensure a bed after a long day of driving. We were well attended to and was almost overwhelmed by the welcoming of the young lady at the front desk. She was extremely helpful, kind and warm....a welcomed change from a lot of places I frequent. The room was spacious with the TV the... More

Betty!!! Betty, is the most awesome front desk lady ever! She's funny, helpful, and sweet as can be! She needs a raise ;) I am here right now for my son's graduation from Army basic training at Fort Jackson. The room (117) is great! Bottom floor, right across from the breakfast room and vending machines (yet still quiet at night).... More

Arriving late, we were greeted very well and check-in was fast; our room was clean and beds were very comfortable. While retrieving items from my car, there was a uniformed security individual walking the property; area was secure and well lit. Breakfast was a full hot breakfast that was well supplied with different foods. All staff were very friendly and... More

For us this location is convenient and easy to find (traveling from Florida to North Carolina. This is our 2nd time staying at this Hotel. We stay at a lot of Hotel chains. LaQuinta is one of our favorites in the price range. They have an excellent Rewards program.

This hotel is in the process of renovation. My husband and I disagree on whether our room was already renovated, however it was certainly nice and clean. We chose to stay here because it is pet-friendly and 100% smoke-free. There was not a smidgen of residual smoke odor. The King Executive room was a little oddly laid out, with the... More

I was so pleasantly surprised to stay at a very pet friendly hotel. It was exceptionally clean and had easy access to pet areas in the parking area of the hotel with doggie doodoo bags and their own trash cans. Unfortunately, not everyone uses those bags, as we picked up someone else's dogs droppings that were right under the can... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times. It is convenient to I-77 and has always been quiet. Check-in has always been fast and staff pleasant. The rooms are nice and the hotel is clean. There are several choices for breakfast. My biggest complaint is that they only have TWO luggage carts for this entire hotel! We travel with a... More

The mattress on the bed felt like some type of makeshift topper & was very uncomfortable. The bathroom was not clean & when reported concerns to staff the attitude was a "so what". We would never stay at this place again.
