“Solid budget choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2011

This seems to be a fairly standard remodeled Red Roof motel. The location is not pretty, and there is some noise from the highway, but seems safe and there are some restaurant options nearby.

The rooms are clean and attractive. As with some others in the chain, the King rooms are tiny, so it can be better to choose a two-bed room or one of the larger king suites (actually the same size as the double rooms) with the fridge and microwave, but that typically costs more.

Red Roofs have upgraded a bit in recent years. Although the furnishings are flimsy, the rooms look pretty good, are well lit and comfortable. The towels are a little softer and thicker than they used to be. Shampoos still comes in a little packet. It's a little thing, but I really like the almond soap.

No breakfast and few other amenities is the biggest drawback. Motel was pretty busy when we were there--lots of people traveling through who arrive late and leave early.

If all you need is a clean and reasonably pleasant room to stay in with free wifi, there is no need to pay more.

I've stayed here several times; it's the halfway point of a trip I make a few times per year. Anyway, this is a solid budget hotel that's located right off the interstate and close to several restaurants, like Wendy's (which is basically in the hotel's parking lot), IHOP, McDonald's, a Mexican restaurant on the other side of Wendy's, and a Cracker Barrel. There's also a good BP gas station close by that sells microwavable items and fruit; this gas station has a Subway inside, too.

As for the hotel itself, the interior is decent for the price--nothing fancy, but you can tell that they keep up with the place. Beds are comfortable. Internet is usually quick, though I once had a problem with its speed during a stay.

If you book online, you can usually get their best rooms--the ones that come with a microwave, fridge, and desk w/ workspace, for $58 bucks. Can't beat the price. Perfect overnight/just-passing-through type of hotel.

Sometimes the people at the desk are gruff, but I can't really think of anything else. I recommend this hotel.

The hotel was clean and tidy, the service was good, and, for our stay, snow clearing was actively pursued making it easy to get out after the storm passed. The location is close to a number of well-known restaurants (Bob Evans, Texas grill, etc) and has an easy access from and to the highway.

Super close to interstate. 2 floor old school motel. Room was updated and bathroom clean but literally a hole was in the drywall and room was still showing its age.

Kinda sketchy area but I never felt unsafe. For around $60 a night, can't complain.

To start I'm a supervisor at a 310 acre year round campground in Myrtle Beach SC that currently holds the National Campground of the year for the fourth time. Yea I know something about customer service. My wife and I are on todays trip for personal family matters, and we have tried to do as much as we can over the last two days. So it was very refreshing when we were between family members and had to find a hotel at the last minute that not only accepted our small dog but had such a great staff. I can only hope that if you come to the Charleston area and stay at Red Roof Inn that you are also greeted by the great service by manager Connie at the front desk, and the very clean room by her staff. Connie is the kind of people we look for in our campground.

Motel 6 has remodeled their rooms at this location, and three adults plus two dogs were very comfortable here. We always bring a king sized sheet to cover each bed (we had two doubles) so the dogs can sleep with us, and we always leave a tip for the housekeeper in case some 'stray doghairs' are left on the carpet.

We arrived after dark and departed very early, so can't speak to any other issues/amenities. Friendly staff person checked us in.

In the past we have avoided Motel 6 due to their 'cell block' kind of decor, but have now changed our tune and will seek these out; we just need a clean place with firm beds to sleep for the night, nothing more.

We were just looking for a decent place to stay for the night. The location was convenient to I-64. Looks a little industrial but was close to lots of chain restaurants. Outdoor corridors. Room was quiet. Comfortable king bed, Good shower -- bath room had night light. Most three or four star hotels don't have that! Very clean, but somewhat dated decor. For the purpose, this was a great deal. About $58 plus tax.
