Motel 6 Charleston South
Ranked #59 of 61 Hotels in Charleston
Reviewed 14 June 2012

My extended family and I stayed here as a last resort when we needed to rest for the night on our way to Savannah. It was late (after 11:00 pm) and we could not find a hotel that had any vacancy. We had to wait for an hour to get into our rooms during which time a woman, who was obviously bloodied from a domestic dispute was wandering the grounds crying. My son was 10 years old at the time and completely unsettled and frightened. Needless to say this event, coupled with the absolutely abysmal condition of the room would teach me to never stay at a Motel 6 under any circumstance. The condition of the room was so bad that my sister left her room to sleep in the car after she found several unidentifiable stains on her sheets! and the smell - Ugh! The worse experience of my traveling experiences and that is saying a lot!

Room Tip: Stay Away!

Stayed here because all hotels were booked because of the Cooper River Run and it was pet friendly. It looked fairly clean but the air was awful inside our room. If the air was off it was unbearably muggy but when it was on it felt like it was going to give you the flu with a deep chest cough. In my opinion, pay more for a nicer hotel. You only live once, you will feel better and wake up feeling clean! I will always recommend shelling out more for a better travel experience.

Room Tip: Pay more for your hotel stay. Your family will thank you for it.

Stayed on the side near the road and it was loud. Rooms were ok. Tv was old. Front desk was nice. If the room didn't jump up in price. It went to 90 a night this would be a fine place for a budget travel. Rooms are worth 50 a night

Staying here for one night is OK if saving money is a concern, but I would not want to stay any longer. We stay at lots of Motel 6s and understand you get only the basics when you go cheap. However, the smoke detector needed a new battery, one key card did not work, the door was difficult to open and close, the sink faucet was hard to turn on, the shower curtain in the "non-smoking" room smelled like stale smoke, the coffee was hard to pump, and there were a few let's say "suspicious" goings-on outside. But other than that, it was okay!

While travelling to Florida we spent the night in this hotel. The outside is very decieving. This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The rugs were worn and ragged, the bedspread had rips in it and the door wouldn't shut unless slammed. There was nothing in the bathroom except two hotel measly bars of soap, no hair dryer, shampoo and only 2 towels that you could spit through. It was dirty and if we hadn't been travelling for 14 hours we would have moved on.

It was very dirty outside the room also. The rugs were stained and in dire need of cleaning. I have only stayed in a Motel 6 once before and it was quite nice, but I will never stay in one again after this experience. If I could give it an honest rating it would be a -10. Very scary!!!!!

The prior reviews about this property are true. The rooms appaer to be clean until you check closely. House keeping had to clean my room twice to get it ready. The bedspread had a cigarette burn on it. This property is just ok.

Disgusting motel. There were old mattresses sitting outside, and not enough parking spots. Inside the room smelled like urine. One of the two double beds had multiple pubic hairs on it indicating the sheets hadn't been changed since the last guess. Other bed had burn hole in the sheet and some sort of black dirt/ particles which could have been potentially the result of bed bugs. Also, there was a small hole in the bathroom wall and the door couldn't shut all the way due to warping. The only positive is that they refunded our money and we got out of their and went to a safer hotel down the road that night.
