We were treated very kindly when we checked in. We were able to inspect two rooms and choose between the two of them. BUTTTTTTTTT..... The linens and towels WERE disgusting. I dont know how they clean those, but the sheets had a "brownish" tint to them, they werent white by all means. Some of the towels we got were stained...

My family and I just got in from a weekend at the viking and I said I had to warn people, do not stay there! The room smelled so bad we had to buy air freshener, used the whole can and it still smelled. When I got home I had to wash all of our clean clothes because they smelled...

I look at a hotel as simply a place to sleep and shower and usually go for something on the cheap side. With that said, the Viking still disappointed me. For starters, and probably the biggest complaint that I have, is that when I got there I was informed I had to pay around a 25 dollar booking fee. I...

Now for the bad..... The maid service was horrible to non existent The towels were so rough you couldn't dry off...

I would not even recommend this motel to my worst enemy. We took the family down for a few days at Myrtle Beach, which almost turned into a spoiled vacation. When we checked in, we discovered mold on the bathroom walls and stains all over the bed and carpet. Only after threats of calling the Better Business Bureau and negative...
