“Great Stay !!”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

I would stay here anytime,the room was very clean and well maintained. The staff was great as was the breakfast. I would recommend this Best Western White Columns to anyone.We stop here on our way to Myrtle Beach SC and was a perfect location from the interstate for our trip.We will be on our next trip to the beach.

I stayed here to swim and enjoy some down time and not even the thunderstorm stopped me. Best sleep I have had in months thanks to Kristi and the staff. And no one and I mean no can beat the country breakfast here. Out of this world great. All I can say is I'll be back.

Room Tip: Tell them you want peace and quiet and that's what you get.

Just the place for a night's rest in the middle of a journey. Peaceful, clean and easy to find. Desk clerk friendly. Good firm mattress and plenty of pillows. Spacious bath. No elevator. Breakfast adequate.

Room Tip: This is an older property, A motel. Second floor rooms have no elevator.

1$ beer night at bar, and breakfast for a fat kid. Rooms were great. The beds were way better than expected and I've slept in some rat holes for out of town work. The people that work here are fun and make you feel at home. And I get four pillows, I love pillows... Love this place.

I stay in best westerns on a fairly frequent basis, I would rate this place the lowest best Western
To begin with the prices are high, the rooms are old very few electrical outlets , the people that serve breakfast are not very friendly , and it just has a general rundown appearance to the whole place.

The hotel has a very nice reception building with deep south traditional white columns and red brick. it seemed inviting and was offered at a great price. However, the rooms are in a different older building and although they appeared clean--we found 3 bugs in the beds between the sheets. Since we have NEVER encountered bed bugs, I can't say for sure that is what they were--but they sure looked like the pictures on the internet. When we went to the desk to check-out (with one of the bugs in a small zip lock bag) the clerk didn't seemed too surprised. When asked whether they had had a problem in the past with bugs, he sort of hedged and didn't answer. (I was freaking out!) When asked if he could help us find another hotel--he said he was sorry, all he could do was give us our money back. This was at 11:00 at night after a long day in the car. What an ordeal! I've never given a bad review on anything but feel this is appropriate. BEWARE.

Susan,
Thank you for you candid feedback of our property.
We appreciate you bringing the zip lock bag to the desk. In the zip lock bag was not a "bug" but a black piece of lint. The front desk associate did apologize to you and we apologize that he did not respond to you properly. However, when we spoke with him he stated that you seemed upset and that he did not want to argue with you and show you that what was in the zip lock bag was a piece of black lint. We apologize that the lint was on the bed.
We take all our complaints seriously and did contact pest control and have the room inspected, the inspection showed no signs of bed bugs.
We have regular health department visits along with monthly pest control visits to ensure that we provide the best service to all our guests.
We hope that you will give us another try when you come back to the area.
Thanks
