My stay wasn't nearly as bad as some of these reviews. I had a single King bed room and everything seem nice, clean, deep bathtub. The doors looked a little old but that doesn't bother me. Breakfast was a bit light, I had a banana, muffins, and apple juice. Cereal is also available. Receptionist was nice and friendly!

Though the hotel is older, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room had a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker and it was just what we needed to have a good time getting ready the Cooper River Bridge Run.

Centrally located to everywhere you want to go, it is a good hotel for the price. The staff is exceptionally friendly and the room is everything that you need if you're traveling with a family. If you're looking for a five-star Resort this is not it. With a family on a budget looking for somewhere to stay that's nice comfortable...

This location is clean and fit our needs for this trip. We were directed to the elevator upon our arrival but our room was on the main floor - not sure the desk clerk knew were the rooms actually were. Towels seemed to be a commodity as we were only given 2 towels, 1 hand towel, 1 wash cloth and...

The location was great due to the business I had in the area. Gas station across the street, restaurants and stores nearby. Walls are thin as you can hear every noise close by. One side of the elevators were out of order. Stains were on the sheets. Nice tub and bathroom area clean. Two things were disturbing: the panel door...
