“wonderful experience”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

This is a wonderful hotel. Very clean and spacious rooms. The staff was very patient and understanding. We stayed in the hotel for two days, we had a funeral to attend. I would recommend this hotel if you are staying in Lake City, South Carolina

Room Tip: if you have a large family, please choose the room with three beds.

We were in town this weekend for a big family funeral. I had never been to Lake City and wasn't sure what to expect. I can be a bit of a hotel snob so I wasn't really looking forward to staying in a motel. I'm a Marriott rewards member and was looking for something a little more upscale.

As it turns out the Security Inn is as upscale as it gets in Lake City. Over the weekend I was in town I had relatives in all 3 hotels in town. I got the chance to check out various rooms in this hotel and of the other 2 hotels in town. The security inn was BY FAR the best.

First the Pro's:
The service was amazing. The people working here are warm, friendly and could not be more accomodating. The room was spacious and clean. [we had the king suite]. There is a full size refrigerator and microwave and a nice flat screen tv. The beds were comfortable. There are plenty of shops and stores in walking ditance and there is a super market right across the street. The water pressure was amazing and the shower head had several settings.

The Cons:
It's a mo-tel. It's not fancy or lux. It's a basic place to sleep and eat. There's no pool.

I visited the Lake City Inn - yikes. They have a pool but it's closed. The wall paper was peeling and the room looked VERY dark and worn. Breakfast was included.

The Days Inn has a working pool, but the rest of the hotel was a mixed bag.

We stayed for one night while visiting family. We were surprised at how nice the room was and the bed was very comfortable. The front desk was very hospitable and we were extremely happy to have found the place.

We have already recommended this place to our family and will be using them again when we are in Lake City.

Two thumbs up!

Room Tip: Request upstairs since these are externally accessible rooms

Several friends and I have stayed at the Security Inn in Lake City on numerous occasions. We have always found the rooms to be the very cleanest of any motel in which we have stayed. The employees are all quite courteous and helpful. Rates are reasonable. When there have been three of us, we have stayed in one of their rooms with three beds or a king and a double bed. The rooms are quite spacious. There are several nice restaurants nearby, and the staff has been helpful in directing us to these. We would highly recommend this motel to anyone traveling in that area of South Carolina.

Ok, to stay in for Lake City, they really don't have any good hotels or suites. Just don't get the presidental suite, its not made for people to stay in just good for a baby shower or etc..have a huge table in the middle of the room.don't get th presidentsl suite its not at all made for a family to stay in. There's a big table made for a group of people, also the maid comes to get her laundry and bring it back, because they store there valcum & laundry there in the room So Weird.

I have stayed here many times and with no problems. Front desk is always freindly and helpful. This hotel is located beside the Holiday Inn and is priced much more reasonable.
