We stayed here b/c we decded we were only going to drive about 1/2 way from Anderson, SC to Tampa. On the trip down we had no reservations, so I did Priceline. (Priviously, we've had very good luck w them.) For $49 (which turned into $61 w taxes & fees), we got a resevation at a 2-star hotel, which turned out to be the nearby Super 8. I'm really not a hotel snob, so we gave them a try. Ewww. It's an older property, fair enough, but the room smelled funny, like it had been a smoking room in the recent past & they just used air-freshener to "spruce it up." When we went back to tell the front desk lady, she was very nice, but she said all the rooms were prob going to smell like that. We said, "no thank you." Then we RAN back to our car. (I can't promise this hotel wasn't the site of a mass murder.) We actually got our money back from Priceline. A 1st for either of us. (Based on the health concerns from the funny smell.) Which is how we found the Drury in.
Our sob story got the front desk clerk to give us a rate of $79, plus they held the dinner buffet for us. This usually ends at 7pm, right when we were checking in. Heck, w dinner included, we prob saved money, plus we got a brand, spankin' new hotel.
