Visiting it, one gets the feeling that this was once THE main motel on U.S. 52, but is now being overtaken by modernity. It also has a restaurant and bar. It is so close to the Interstate (95) that one gets the feeling that if a truck should hurtle off the overpass, it's going to be your roommate. You can... More

Despite the Non-existent WiFi, which I tried, for hours, to access, and, mentioned, to Front Desk, and, was near, to Lobby, this, older, Motel, with spacious rooms, was very quiet, for a Friday night, and, had the best breakfast experienced, to date, of any and all Hospitality Industry. It is a spread, of 20 items, including beautifully, scrambled, eggs, 4... More

On the evening of October 4, 2015, I needed a hotel in Florence. I had seen the Thunderbird Inn before and it looked quaint and a reminder of the older days of the roadside motels when Highway 301 was the main way north and south. I usually use KAYAK and when I saw that they had the Thunderbird Inn and... More

Stopped to spend the night on our way to Myrtle Beach. Room was fairly clean. Could use some updating and remodeling. Pool furniture wasn't very solid. Seemed to be some very sketchy people hanging around the place. It was OK for the night, but I wouldn't want to spend any more time that that.

I'm not going to beat around the bush, this motel could use some updated material but for 50 bucks and for it being summit 500 in town and everything else was booked it was a place to lay our heads, I checked for bedbugs and didn't find any, the toilet flushed fine I was able to brush my teeth, the...

The overall stay was average because we loved the southern food, but the room left a lot to be desired. We arrived pretty late in the evening and this was one of the few places in Florence with any rooms left. The front desk staff was very friendly. She directed us to our room (in front of the pool) and... More
