When we checked in at 7:30 p.m., the clerk never looked at me or smiled. She was all business. We always take the bedspread off and asked for a top sheet to cover the blanket for sanitation purposes. We asked for nothing else (even though there was no shampoo or hair dryer - we had our own). She rolled her... More

We were traveling and needed a room and a shower for the night. The very friendly front desk clerk, Parista, checked us in and gave me a hairdryer to use. The room was clean,the king size bed was comfortable, the air conditioner worked, and the price was great. Basic, no frills, older furnishings but clean.

Old, Tired "motor court" style hotel on what used to be the main road. Clean but very dated decor. loud Air Conditioner. Friendly staff. Fast WiFi service. Very inexpensive price and perfect for my need. Probably would not return.

My wife had to unexpectedly stay in a hospital down the road from this hotel. While there were many many hotels in this area; I chose this one as it did not appear to be a "chain". I thought without that feeling the service would be better. Somewhere after 8 pm a loud banging happened in the next room from... More

If you're looking for a budget motel that doesn't smell bad, then this is it. Don't expect much, but the bed is clean and so is the bathroom. No tissues in the holder and no shampoo or conditioner. You can get a tiny bottle of shampoo from the front desk if needed. Breakfast is advertised but it is also minimal:... More

We only stayed here because we were told there were no rooms available in the entire town. As a business owner myself, I hate to put down another business but I can not hold back. Upon arriving, I was asked if I had pets. Nothing else. No information about the motel, breakfast, check out time etc. I was not even... More

We had a reason to be in Orangeburg (not just passing through on the Interstate) and needed pet-friendly accommodations. I really don't know why I booked this motel. I guess it looked better than my other option there. Can't say it was price, because after paying extra for the pet and extra for late checkout, I'm not sure it was... More

Right reserved a room after reading the reviews on here. I must agree that for the price this is an absolutely delightful stay. The plus is that they even have free breakfast which makes it perfect! I think it was a good stay. I will make sure to come back

I stayed here recently. The rooms were very clean. The staff was nice. I am handicapped so it was great that all the rooms are ground floor. The price compared to next door was 50% less!!! I stayed for 55 where next door they were charging me 95.

Stayed here overnight for a work trip. Motel rooms are small and dated but looked to be kept clean and neat. Office had a bad stinch of incense or candles that would turn a stomach, but not in the rooms. Breakfast would be to skip and go to Hardee's. Would stay here again if needed.
