We stayed here on a voucher from American Airlines because of a diverted flight. The good? The desk staff was supremely nice and the bed was comfortable. The bad? An a/c unit that blew at a constant 60 decibels and could not be turned down or off. (This did mask the thin walls, but made sleep elusive) We killed a... More

I was referred to this hotel by the representatives at Fort Jackson as I couldn't stay on base for my daughters AIT Graduation...they were booked. Well, upon arrival I was a little taken back by the odor in the lobby. I'm not a princess, I just need CLEAN. I was meeting my in laws and when they arrived, the were... More

Front desk staff was less than friendly. The wifi in our room -- and our friends' rooms -- never worked. The lights over the vanity area were on their way to being burned out and flickered constantly. We had a nonsmoking room, but the toilet and tub had burn marks. Bathroom was partially redone (nice tub) but the rest of... More

My family and I stayed here one night driving home from a coastal vacation. The check-in went smoothly and the staff was VERY nice. We were surprised to see the on-site restaurant, and decided because it was late, we would settle in and then eat there. The restaurant staff was really friendly and our food was good. The room seemed... More

We stopped here for the night to break up our 16 hour drive to GA to see our son for Christmas. The location was GREAT as it was just off of the highway. The girl at the front desk was NOT very friendly that night but the one the next morning was wonderful! We were a little miffed that we... More

Since this was a spur-of-the-moment overnight trip, I didn't look into many reviews. And I paid for it. Here are the highlights of the lowlights. We booked a smoke free room, but the room had an awful smoke smell. We asked for another room and had the same result. We decided to put up with it since it was late... More

A little hard to find at first, but close off a main highway. You're not paying high-end prices, so don't expect a high-end hotel. Room was fine and we had no complaints. It seems a little run down in some areas, but again, it's a decent place to stay if you're just looking for an average hotel.

There are so many things I don't know where to start!! I have stayed here before and it was a couple of years ago-it definitely wasn't like this then! First of all, we stayed a week with several types of rooms... So we have a list! It was 100 degrees outside and we had air conditioners that did not work!... More
