McCormick, SC
Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

We stayed here one night to catch a cruise the next day. Being Feb. and near a cruise port the place was busy. The retro look was nice for a change and although it had a vintage the upkeep and cleanliness was excellent. The price can't be beat.

This efficiency motel is run very well and it has a very viable location..close to the town and the sea. The sea at Ft Lauderdale by the sea is exceptional and is a favorite spot for scuba divers. The beach is pristine and the water is crystal clear. The accommodations are basic and the staff is very helpful. The prices...

The room was great for an evening. The front desk was friendly and explained everything to us. I would definitely stay here in the future. The access to the places around was great. Good place to stay before a cruise.

We stayed here for 5 days from 1st January this year prior to a cruise , its an older style motel type property with a very relaxed ambiance,the decor and fittings , particularly in the kitchen are heavily painted and quite dated but give the place a charm of its own. Everything works well and is spotlessly clean. We had...

We stayed here for one day/night in early December. The manager was helpful and check in was quick and easy. We had a large ground floor room which was basic but very clean. It contained a large fridge/freezer, iron, hairdryer, tv, microwave and plenty of hanging/drawer space. The furniture is old and dated but serves its purpose. The motel has...
