Positive Reviews

Upbeat about customer service

Guests spoke highly of the professional, friendly and obliging employees, who normally made check-in hassle-free. Those traveling with their four-legged friends were delighted with the pets allowed policy.

Convenient roadside location near golf courses

Golfers were in their element due to the proximity of several top golf courses. The location of this South Carolina discount hotel also appealed to drivers as it was just off Interstate 95, which made it simple to access local beauty spots, outdoor recreation areas and regional attractions. The ample free parking was another bonus. It also appealed to reviewers that there were gas stations, eateries and convenience stores nearby.

Clean and affordable rooms won praise

Most travelers said the rooms were nothing fancy but were more than adequately clean and comfy for a shorter stay. There was praise for the comfortable beds and free Wi-Fi. Many reviewers felt the unpretentious rooms with traditional decor were well-equipped with all the essentials for a pleasant stay including large flat-screen TVs, coffee-makers, microwaves and fridges. Those prioritizing affordability liked the way the room rates were usually easy on their wallets, adding that they got decent value for money.

Negative Reviews

Minor maintenance grumbles

Although many reviewers noted their rooms were well-maintained, others took issue with maintenance problems such as dated decor, aging items of furniture and an occasionally unreliable hot water supply in some rooms.

Cleanliness issues encountered

Inadequately cleaned surfaces, bathrooms that could have been more comprehensively cleaned and stained sheets were among the cleanliness issues that frustrated several guests in certain rooms.

Mixed feelings about breakfast

Although the free continental breakfast was a welcome addition for many guests, some diners criticized the limited choice of food items.
