This place is a dump. Half the motel is boarded up and sectioned off with caution tape. It's set down off the main road and is run down and secluded. Nothing in the room worked properly. The electrical outlets were all in bad shape, the furnishings were filthy, the room smelled like mildew, the plumbing fixtures were oddly matched (cover to the toilet tank clearly did not belong to that unit, shower fixtures were coming off the wall, etc.) There is no sound proofing so it seemed as though there were other people in our room, we could hear everything. Don't stay here.

Ok my husband and I was going to Columbia SC for our son's graduation and my husband went on-line and booked us a room here being cheap. Well you know the old saying you get what you pay for and we got it. The hotel was well I dont know where to start, the walls were horrible, the bed was well I cant even think of nothing to say about that bed except wow and I dont mean that in a good way. The TV was old which I didn't mind but it kept making this weird noise and we could'nt hear anything but that noise and the chair that was in the room I was scared to sit on as a matter of fact I didn't. Then the back of the hotel (where our rooms were) looked I dont even know what to say but really really really bad. The only good thing I can say about this hotel is they had waffles on their breakfast. We paid for two rooms and wanted to leave however, we were told that it was after 3 and we couldnt receive our money back for the first night so we sucked it up and stayed for that one night but early and I do mean early that next morning we checked out and got the dickens out of there. Oh I forgot its in walking distance of a Walmart so that was good.
