Stayed three nights recently. Hotel is in a great location. Must have management issues as attention to detail is lacking. Room went uncleaned asked for additional towels and had to call again an hour later. Was delivered a clump of towels no apology just handed towels. Asked the next morning and was told I was not the only one who...

The room was nice. The food at this hotel was really good. But the bottom line is.... you go to a hotel to sleep. I was unable to sleep because the stairwell door next to my room kept SLAMMING shut. I told the front desk about this and they said it would be fixed ... it was not. It was...

We stayed at this hotel while attending a concert in the area. The property has been updated and is clean and modern. The only problem that we had was ANTS in the bathroom. We call the front desk and maintenance came and 'wiped' them up; however as soon as he left they were back. It made for a very uncomfortable...

Great location and friendly staff. Hotel is very dated and needs a remodel as well as new furniture in rooms. Stains on couch and chairs which is not what one expects for $200+/ night hotel. Small fitness center as well given size of hotel. Ok for one night on business but needs serious renovation.

The hotel's location is great but the service was not consistent. Half of the staff was great and the other half was so-so. The guest rooms can use some update. The hallway carpet looks old and worn. The same goes for the carpet in the guest room. Not sure if the recent flood in SC may have some affect on...

I just stayed here for a one night business trip. Overall, I give it an average rating. The hotel was clean, you could tell it was older, there were some dents in the wall and wallpaper peeling off.

I was in town for the USTA championships. I had opted for a cheaper option (I won't say who) and was severely disappointed when I arrive to the hotel that shall not be named.

I stayed here for a number of times this year. In one sentence, it is like a typical Marriott, everything was good but nothing extraordinary.
