You definitely get what you pay for. Having said that, one can expect a hotel with the basic amenities. Nothing fancy. Book online to get their "Red Hot Deals" with rooms costing between $45-$50 a night, which are some of the cheapest in the area. I visit family in the Charleston area 2 - 3 times a year and always stay here for the low rates. It's a fairly decent place to stay. Seeing that I am only there to sleep. I spend most of my time with family. All the rooms have been renovated within the past 2 years, which makes it a much nicer place to stay since I first stayed there back in 2005. The only real negative that I find is with the daily cleaning of your room. To be fair, and nice about it. "their housekeeping sucks!!" In a nutshell, this is what they do; give you fresh towels, and soap, make your bed (without changing your sheets), empty the trash, and pick up whatever large pieces of trash are on the floor. I had to call housekeeping to VACUUM my room as there was pet & human hair everywhere. And that was shortly after I checked in. On my second day there, I had to call and have them wipe down the area around the basins, vacuum, and mop the bathroom floor. My last full day there, I put the "Do Not Disturb" sign on my door; I got up late and left the hotel at 1pm, at which I turned the sign to read "Clean Room". I arrived back at 7pm to find my room untouched. No one in housekeeping checked back to see if I changed the sign. Since when does do not disturb means do not clean, and don't bother checking back?
Basically it's a decent inexpensive place to stay. You definitely have to stay on top of housekeeping.
