Please DO NOT stay at this hotel. It is not worth it. I have stayed at many many IHG properties (Holiday Inn Express, Crowne Plaza, Candlewood Suites, Staybridge Suites, etc.) and this is the worst one I've EVER stayed in. The 3rd floor is not even habitable. It looks like a creepy zombie movie with boxes everywhere, dust on everything,...

We are staying at this hotel and I'm not sure if I should be here. They are renovating it and the smell is awful. They said our room is completely done but the number to our room is penciled on the wall (no wallpaper or paint has been done in the hallway). There is a blow dryer in the bathroom...

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us about our hotel. We are in the process of renovating our entire property which is why the hallway had no wallpaper. This is not an easy process and cannot be done all at once. Along with the renovation we are upgrading room amenities that we are on hold with receiving. We will...

When we pulled up to the hotel it was almost like there was no one around. That was the first red flag we got. Once we got in and started talking to the lady at the front desk she told us that the wifi was down (she said it was from the storm) which I assumed she meant the hurricane...

The location is perfect for restaurants and easy access on and off the interstate. Rooms were clean and fresh, no noise at all and very friendly service. Breakfast was well prepared and with many choices. Would surely stop here again.

We stay here each year on our way to Folly Beach,SC. This is the best half way point. We have seen it at its worst. The breakfast has always been poor but I think that is due to the staff. The breakfast staff has been withdrawn and shows an attitude of complacency. The rooms are at best adequate. The night...

Dear ccr9217, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at our hotel. It is great to know that you were able to appreciate the condition of our room. However, I was concerned to see that you were not impressed with our breakfast service. I would like to apologize for any inconvenience these issues may have...

We stayed in a standard room and pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. It really didn't seem much different all, just saved us some money. The beds were very comfortable as well! There was a mini fridge, small keurig coffee maker and microwave in the room. The location is just beginning a major renovation. Should be awesome when...

When you first walk in you can tell that this hotel was nice when it was built. Seeing signs that they are doing a full remodel is clear that they want to keep it updated. Knowing that it is older and yet so clean you can tell it has been well taken care of. I would recommend staying here, especially...

Keep driving to another exit! I would not stay here again. The staff was helpful and kind but the rest of the place needs work. I saw a sign that said they would be remodeling in August -I hope they also clean. My room was on the 2nd floor close to a heavy door that would slam everytime someone used...

This is not up to Holiday in standards whatsoever. The halls smelled heavily of smoke and so did the elevator. The A/C in the room was so horrific, that they had a fan that sits on the floor to help with the sweating agony. Their toilet had black marks on the inside of the bowl. A Bobby pin was left...

Way over-priced for quality of the room. Although the room was a non-smoking room it was on the third floor which has smoking rooms. The hallway as well as my non-smoking room smelled of cigarette smoke. Though I reported that the smoke alarm was missing from my room, the staff did not seemed concerned. I think a fire marshal would...
