Yes it has WiFi and a "continental breakfast" but it has dirty bedspreads, poor heating/AC units, and a general appearance of age and lack of maintenance. Twenty miles away is Lumberton, NC with a much better selection of hotels and restaurants.

The desk clerk was very freindly and helpful . They did honor the coupon form the motel saver book with no problem. They did have free wifi . If you've read the other reviews...Yep, they are for the most part pretty much correct, but for 38 dollars you shouldn't expect much more than a safe clean place to sleep. .
The front office had a gut wretching smell of maybe garlic, incense and who knows???. It will almost take your breath and turn your stomach. The room did not have this smell or I would have had to leave. The room was pretty well worn with bad carpet , very thin sheets and towells. The room did look to have been cleaned and I didn't see any bugs. Over all this is not the worst hotel I've stayed at , but far from the best.. I would probally stay again just for a one nighter for work but would not take my family or recomend to a family or anyone who is very picky. The breakfast consisted of a few peices of bread for toast , cerals, and donuts. I passed on the breakfast. Just took the money I saved by the cheaper room and went to waffle house.

WOW!!!!!! Traveling to Disney. On the road for about 14 hours kids are tired decided to get off of highway and rest for the night. Saw the giant sign outside read NEW Rooms. Ok, checked in no problem paid $60 what a bargain. Carried the kids into the room. Ouch!!!! Smell of old stale air. Ok, so we turned a/c on maybe just needed air circulation. Hop into the shower paper tin scratchy towels, took a quick shower back into the room. Smell disapated pulled the covers off of the beds. Yukkkkkkk !!!!!! grease stains on the sheets. Checked the beds and room for bugs none found. My wife had some sheets and blankets in the van. Dressed the beds ourselves with our own blankets. Got up at sunrise and bolted out the door. This place is terrible. Maybe it is used as a happy Motel by the men's club next door. Would not recommend to anyone.

This was by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The room had mold all over the ceiling, the smell was awful. The comforter was anything but comfortable, it was old and rough to the touch. The complimentary breakfast included stale donuts (my 6yr old took one bite of her donut and threw it away) and the milk for the coffee was 3 weeks past it's sell by date. I will NEVER stay at an Econo Lodge again.

Disgusting bedding and pillows. The blanket was so gross, hugh bleach stains, coarse and so, so old! The "breakfast" consisted of cold coffee and very stale donut! Hugh waste of money! Should be shut down.

I and another family simultaneously tried two different rooms- bedbugs, stains on sheets, dirty carpet, sinks- was afraid to get undressed or use shower. Heater would blast on, then go off. Like other people, I was denied refund, and checked into a Comfort Inn, which felt much safer and luxurious in comparison. I ran into the other people there also. I notified my credit card company, as I will Choice Hotels and the local Dept. of Health. This EconoLodge should be shut down, and the place inspected.

We stayed here for one night on our way from PA to Charleston. I wouldn't recommend this place as a destination, just a quick overnighter. The roomsaver.com rate was very reasonable, that's what prompted us to choose to stay here. The linens were clean, the room was clean, but the outside of the toilet bowl near the floor had not seen a cleaning in a long time. The towels were small, thin and very scratchy, it was almost like drying yourself with a loofah. The room did have a small refrigerator and microwave, and a continental breakfast of cereal, white bread or toast, coffee and juice is included. Stay here only if you want a basic, cheap room for a few hours sleep.
