This is my third time staying here with my grandchildren. The room is always clean by Kimmee, the salt water pool is clean and warm and grilling equipment is available. This is not a boutique hotel, this is not a chain hotel. This is a privately owned Folly Beach Hotel and that is how I am reviewing it. It fits... More

When I booked the hotel through Priceline it had 4 out of 5 stars and I failed to read the reviews because I assumed anything on Folly would be decent. When I booked the room it was advertised as a two queen bed room - when we arrived there was ONE double bed. The room smelled like ciggarette smoke, and... More

The location cannot be beat. It is right off the beach and the downtown. The rooms are out of the 60's so that gives them a funky charm. The a/c did not work in our first room, so the we were switched to a second room. The owner's/managers are a bit standoffish. Accept that this is a funky place and... More

What can I say. "Holliday" Inn? The entry door with damaged window trim was locked and the intercom was needed to call the desk clerk. The decorative pool at the entry that uses hardware from the water tank of a toilet features a artificial turtle that has a look on its face of surprise. The air conditioning was good, the... More

Bad impression when the manager opened the door of this old house (can't be called a hotel) he needed a shower and get hands and nails cleaned up. Air conditioner didn't cool enough the little room . It was a bad experience. They need to change the name to stop fooling people pretending that they are HOLIDAY INN.

First of all, the "manager" was not on the phone, while I waited, to be acknowledged for 20 minutes. You were on the computer. Any computer activity could be paused, and a customer should atleast be addressed, in a timely manner. Do you remember, after you finally decided to grace me with your presence, I asked you where a bathroom... More

the guest wifi account (holliday inn open guest east, and holliday inn open west) does not have a password and although the bandwidth allocated to each user is limited it does work. The secure network is for business computers. We do not have a public restroom, that is true...I did my best to get the check in processed as quickly... More

Quirky but clean and comfortable. No it's not a five star but resort but it doesn't pretend that it is, it's actually better because it has character and fits in perfectly with the Folly scene (which is quickly disappearing).

It would appear on trip advisor that this is probably the scariest place you have ever suggested a dump for me. The manager wouldn't let us in, we had to talk to him through an intercom system. We looked around, yes, it was dark. All we could see was run down shacks the manager called rooms. When I asked him... More

the check-in times are made very clear when you book your room. If you show up before check-in there is a good chance your room will not be ready at that time. we do a great deal of business here, and the maids do require time to clean the rooms to make them nice for the next day's guests.... i...

The guy in the office was very rude. When we arrived for check in the last customers took the key so they had no key for us. The pool was closed. Website said breakfast but they don't do breakfast. Never will we stay at this place again. Very dirty
