2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

We needed a place to crash for the night on the way to Myrtle Beach. I booked this through Expedia Unpublished Rates, based on the 2 star rating. This is far from a 2 star property. The lobby bears no resemblance to the pictures on the web site, the entire place is very tired with a neglected air, stairwells were dirty, halls stuffy and we were given a smoking room, despite the confirmation from Expedia stating it was a non-smoking room. There is no ventilation in the room and the odour was so overwhelming, we could not stay. The front desk clerk stated that although he had a non smoking room available, he could not move us because Expedia had requested a smoking room. We went down the road to the Quality Inn, paid slightly more for a far superior hotel and found that Expedia refused to do anything for us. So we lost the money paid to Expedia and Expedia lost a customer. Terrible customer service.

Room Tip: If you are non-smokers, take a pass on this hotel

My room was clean, the hotel was a little outdated, but excepted pets which I needed, my biggest complaint was the back entrance card reader was broken so you had to enter through the lobby which was a downfall because my room was all the way to end and that door would have been a bit more convenient to take my dog out of

Exceptionally clean and wonderfully designed room. Microwave, fridge, desk two chairs, table, two beds, safe, very nice bath room. Only downside at all was a little bit noisy right before bed time but not disturbed during night. I was shocked how nice the room was for what I paid. Picked it because had coupon from hotel travel book and it had free wifi. Wonderful surprise. Would defiantly stay there again! Basic breakfast but was quick and free so good enough. Room was something I would have expected from much more expensive hotel.

Room Tip: I was on first floor near lobby which was continent for breakfast but may not have been the quietest...

we stay at this hotel on our way to Florida and on the return trip, the hotel is clean and nicely furnished rooms and if you can get a walk in rate from hotel coupons . com its a excellent deal. the breakfast area is small only 3 tables but adequate no waffle machine. give it a try and talk to sheila at the front desk.

Fine for our overnight en route to Johnson City, TN. Fair price. Older but renovated...rooms and bathrooms, at least. Lobby a little shabby. Along with hallway, smelled of cigarette smoke...welcome to West Virginia! We had a non-smoking room...no odor of smoke. "Breakfast" was vey basic...cereal, toast, coffee, juice, etc...nothing hot. Staff was friendly and helpful. Satisfied for the rate.
