“What a DUMP!”
Reviewed 13 July 2005

This place was the worst hotel I have ever seen. We had two rooms booked. Both rooms had a musty smell and grease on the carpet. We had to find someplace else to stay. Also just before we checked in another couple was storming out of there,that should have been our clue. We told them we can't stay in those rooms. They didn't argue about refunding our money. I can't believe that Clairon is associated with this place . Also Triple A should send someone to check this out,they had a GOLD AAA sign hanging out front(what a joke). I wish we had taken pictures of the rooms.

My Family stayed at the Carolinian Inn while we had some work done on our home. Beautiful Lobby in an old Plantation House. Rooms with Four Poster Rice Beds, refrigerators, microwaves, and coffee were very clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. We had a wonderful continental breakfast each morning. Georgetown is a wonderfully charming city with a lot of history. I recommend anyone interested in visiting Georgetown to stay at the Carolinian Inn.

I don't know about the other two reviews - maybe there's another Carolinian and they got the address wrong. I was shocked by this "motel". Room was dirty - hairs on the tiles in the bathroom. Musty, wet almost fishy smell. Panel walls were separating in the room. No soap. Brother's room had sopping wet carpet. Trash under beds. Don't be fooled - this is an early 70's era motor lodge that has undergone almost no renovatation. Website pictures are very deceptive. It is more than tattered - it's falling down. It is NOT within walking distance of the Georgetown waterfront - it's on the busiest commercial street in Georgetown - Highway 17 aka "Church St." Clarion has removed it's name, and I suspect AAA and Mobil will do the same shortly. Anything else in Georgetown has to be better.
