My teammates and I recently stayed at the Sleep Inn while visiting our Alma mater. The manager Steve and his staff made sure our visit was perfect from check in to check out. We are planning this trip again next year and won't consider another hotel!

Room Tip: Some rooms have flat screens.

Very nice hotel. We stayed here with my large German Shepard, and I was impressed that for a pet friendly hotel, it was very clean and comfortable. It was close to tons of restaurants, and the staff was helpful. Overall it was a nice place to stay.

I have stayed in over 300 different hotels in the past 7 years in North and South Carolina and this one is by far in my Top Ten hotels. I enjoy the customer service and price is the best in the area for the quality of the hotel. I am a smoker so that is a big thing for me and I need a fridge, well just so happen they were out of those rooms. So he accommodated me by giving me a upgraded room for the same price as a standard room. I love the location it's walking distance to a gas station, cracker barrel, hooters, and other plus everything you could want to eat and all the popular stores are less then 5 miles away. I'm a wrap this up by saying the rooms are clean, the beds are comfy, the staff is professional and very accommodating and its 20 feet from Hooters what more can a guy ask for? The answer: NOTHING!
