I was in town for the basic training graduation. Front desk clerk was rude. The rooms need to be updated. The carpet was nasty. The smell of cigarette smoke and weed smoke was strong. Every thing in the room was outdated. I do not recommend to anyone. It was like being at the roach motel without the roaches. We left...

Our stay was originally scheduled for three days we left early on an already paid for room, first of all they never refilled the coffee for the room cleaned or out the pot, or replaced the toiletries. We tried to go for the "continental breakfast" or nasty muffins and cereal. As we walked to the office we noticed the "gravel...

We were hoping for an inexpensive place to stay while driving long distance for our family. We booked the EL with ease, but that is where the convenience ceased. Upon arrival (12:30am) we noticed several shady characters which looked suspiciously like they were involved in illegal activities (I.e., prostitution). After walking through the front doors we were overwhelmed with the...

The list is long. Dated mattress. Sink drain clogged. Cleaning maid left a half eaten twinkee on my night stand. Heater activates smoke alarm. Room locked one day even though paid for via Choice Rewards. The community around hotel is re-developing nicely and the owner of this franchise needs to look around and UPGRADE. Owner has an opportunity at hand...

This place is filthy. Bogeys on the walls. Mold all over. Don't stay here. We travel often. And stay at budget priced hotels. This is the worst. I am afraid to shut the lights off. There is no smoke detector in our room. We are leaving

If paint, clean rooms, and bathroom updates could turn around a very old facility that sits too close to a busy highway, this hotel would be a 5-star hotel. Unfortunately, the tiny size of the rooms and the age of the hotel can't be overlooked. The staff are warm and welcoming, but you get what you pay for when you...

I had read some bad reviews on this hotel so was hesitant. We stayed two nights. Heat worked, great shower. Beds were clean. It's an old hotel and showing its age. Needed some paint but it filled the bill for what we needed. Close to Ft. Jackson which is why we were there. Front office gal was great. Breakfast consisted...

We needed 3 rooms for the entire family to go to my husband graduation at fort Jackson. The rooms were clean, however the carpet in one of the rooms look dirty by the bathroom, beds were comfortable and staff was very friendly and helpful. The location of this hotel is perfect. The 77 express way was very close, shopping center...

We pull into parking lot... it's filled with drunk people partying outside the front of the hotel by their vehicles. As soon as you walk inside the scent of marijuana hits you in the face. the room was gross, greasy carpet and smelled of cigarette smoke. We finally get to sleep 10pm then get woken up because the front desk...

We needed a place to sleep. This place was not clean, stains on sheets and pillow cases, the air worked intermittently, bathroom fixtures were broken, breakfast was ok but the check inn staff was friendly
