We have stayed here three times over the past three years. It started out okay but the last two years it's gone down hill. This past time will be the last time. If it weren't for the restaurant next door (the Anchor) I'm not sure this place would have any business. Outdated and uncomfortable. The beds are rock hard and...

The motel was clean and kept well. All in all I am pleased with the way my visit went. Not the most friendly service but did their job and was helpful if needed. If I am ever in the area again and need a cheap place to stay I would stay here again.

This place is a hole. It's an old fashioned motel. To turn on the light in the room, you have to turn on a breaker. The room smelled. The comforters were thin and cheesy. The staff was unfriendly. We asked for a refund and were denied so we left. We filed a claim with our credit card company. For 20$...

If you are a budget traveler, or even if your not but simply need a decent clean place to sleep for a night I recommend this Budget Host. The rooms are actually more generously sized than many motels and that includes the bathroom. Stayed here the last night on the road coming home from a Florida vacation. This room and...

After the last 2 nights, this was a gem ... still a low cost motel, but a world away from my previous experiences. Nice quiet location on the riverfront south of Charleston, has a nice restaurant next door. The room was spacious, clean, everything worked, the bathroom has been recently redone, the shower was as good as home, and the...

As suggested by another reviewer we called the hotel directly. We made our reservation asking for the aarp discount, and a river view room. The person taking the reservation, (I believe the owner), accommodated us with both requests, and was very polite. Upon check-in the registration process was painless. This is an older property, yes, you get a metal key...

The person who checked me in was surly and very curt. The room seemed very run down. The sheets had a funky smell to them. There were spider webs and other dead insects in the room. My impression was that drifters, weirdos, and other such people stay there. Bottom line: it didn't feel safe. Avoid.

I went into the office to inquire if this hotel had king size beds. The lady at the desk said they do and I asked if she had 2 rooms with King size beds which she said yes. She happened to see my little 5 pound yorkie in the truck which she is certified as a service animal. I told...
