“Over priced ran down motel”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

My name is Victoria bramlett. I stayed July 18 th and 19 th. I paid 149.00 for two nights. The steps was made of wood that was thick as hell. Which made the stairs very scary and unlevel. I don't know how that even passed state codes. The curtains had holes in them. The bed was very very wore out. The springs in side the mattress was pointing threw the bed. Which my husband said his semi truck bed sleeps better than a motel bed. A 19 inch tv that was from the eighties and the cable being a poor connection because it was very blurry. Just to hear it you had to turn it way up. You would think that the money that ppl pay to stay there they could invest some of that money back into that motel. Never again will I stay there again!!! Don't pay for a hurting back pay a little more and get a nice room in Charleston.

My husband And I had planned to camp in our tent at Lake Erie campground in Hollywood, SC (like 10 min from this motel 6) and that was a no go, our campsite was nasty and just plain unpleasant. So, i started calling hotels, everyone was booked, BESIDES MOTEL 6! Yay! A place to stay, the workers were very sweet and the room waa decent! We felt safe and alot more pleasent there than at the campground. So, thank you guys for being life Saviors!!

The carpet was damp. Room was very small. The mattress was very cheap and smashed down to being almost flat. My shoulders and back hurt the next day. Cops constantly patrol the lot leaving me to think there is prostitution or drug dealing. Goons hang out on the stairwell all day. Parking is limited. In general I like Motel 6. They can be good but this is the worst.

The room was terrible. We made a reservation by phone while driving to Charleston from our previous vacation stop. The pool in front of the motel was only 3 ft deep and very small. The room smelled so overwhelmingly of cigarette smoke that my toddler even said it was stinky. It was also very small and cramped. The bed spreads looked dingy. The desk chair was rickety and almost fell apart when I sat down in it. We immediately went back to the front desk, refused the room, and received a full refund. I definitely would not recommend this place to anyone, even if you are on a budget it's not a place you'd want to stay. The only good thing I can say is that the staff were very friendly and helpful. They seem to be trying hard to revamp the motel, hopefully they can accomplish their goal because there is potential if they can get the place cleaned up and fixed up. I believe the staff is working very hard to accomplish this goal, so perhaps later on it will be much better; but, for now I don't recommend it.

Nice clean rooms, friendly front desk. Great location, great price, especially for Charleston where hotel rooms are expensive. Close to restaurants and Folly Rd. About 5 minutes from historic downtown.
