“Travelers Wife”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

I stayed at this hotel for several days as we were in town for appointments and just leisure with the kids. For the price the hotel did meet my expectations, it did have a reasonable rate. The room was clean, except the carpet was very dirty and the bathroom could use a few small repairs with the toilet and shower curtain. Pool and hot tub was great, just wasn't no towels available, the breakfast was decent, the lady working in the breakfast room was very friendly and pleasant.

We feel that we are an excellent value. When our remodeling (scheduled to start in late fall) is complete we will be a superior hotel for the money and a great place to stay no matter what your standards are. All carpets will be replaced, rooms will have new furniture, drapes and appliances and I can assure you that there will be no shortage of pool towels! We want to thank this guest for mentioning our breakfast attendant who is terrific. Our front desk staff is also fast becoming a major asset and we invite these guests and all others to visit us on their next trip to the area.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

We stayed here travelling down to Charleston, SC on a family vacation. Check in went smoothly enough. We opened the door to the room and the AC was not on and it was damp and hot in the room. We immediately turned on the AC and began to cool off the room. On high fan and max AC, the room finally cooled off by 3 am.
The bathtub left a lot to be desired in the cleanliness arena also. The tub drained very slowly, so water pooled at your feet. Also, there was a group of unknown stains on our blanket which grossed us out. Picture included
Overall, it was a place to stop off and rest for the night on the way to our final destination and we had booked the same hotel for our way back home as well due to the nice price. We cancelled this return reservation for another hotel.

Staff was super, room as very spacious I do recommend the Regency Suite if you have a larger family. Good value, just not the cleanest hotel. I would stay again.
