“Huge Mistake!”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

Booked this on Hotels Tonight $259. How bad could it be at that price? Awful. I should have checked these reviews first. But we were trapped, no refunds! Normally this room is $119. There were no other options this weekend. First room we got here- was given to someone else while we were out. When we retuned for the evening our key didn't work. Really? Desk clerk gives us another room that smelled like smoke and had roaches crawling around in the light. Desk clerk brings us to our third room. As soon as she looked in the bathroom she spun on her heel and took us right out of there. Ann- the desk clerk had a good nature and tried her best. The 4th room didn't smell as bad- and no signs yet of roaches. I am hopeful we will get through the night. This place is fully booked but hardly any cars in the parking lot. I wouldn't stay here again even if someone paid me $259.

If you are desperate, it's better than a slum motel. You should definitely ask to see the room and once you are in the room take pictures of anything that you are concerned about. Housekeeping does not respect the "Do not disturb" sign, they will knock and enter in at will.

Thank-you for taking the time to write your review of our hotel. I am sorry to hear that the housekeeping department disturbed you in your room. The housekeepers will only enter a guest room with a do not disturb sign on the door until after checkout time. I have shared your comments with the staff and reiterated our policy with them. I hope you have a chance to visit us again in the future.

This hotel wasn't the worst but I wouldn't recommend staying more than one night. Not only did the room have mold there was also bugs. The good side of this hotel was the park and cruise package. The area was a safe location and we felt comfortable enough to leave our cars for a week. The staff was amazing. The tanger outlet is right behind the hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a bottom floor

Thank-you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and were able to take advantage of our free parking during your cruise. We are very convenient to many area attractions with the Tanger Outlets being a favorite amongst our guests. It is a good place to get a few last minute items before setting off on vacation. We are checking all the rooms for the mold issue you mentioned. We have not encountered this issue before but are being very diligent in checking all of the rooms for this. We are glad you enjoyed the staff during your brief stay and I will make sure to pass along your kind words.

On the positive side, it's cheap, the AC worked, beds were comfortable and it had hot water. On the negative, the toilet ran constantly, there were gnats, and the room smelled of cigarettes though it was non smoking. Request to change room was met with "none available" and no action on fixing the toilet. Nearby Days Inn is a better option.

Good location and great for price! Clean, cozy, and great staff! Breakfast is delicious and pool is lovely too.
The grounds are well kept and the staff is so helpful. It's so close to many great places to eat (but avoid Waffle House). There is a pool room and even games to play if you need to stay busy. Ann really made my stay worth it all! If I ever need a place to stay or need to recommend a place it will be there because Ann makes you feel like you are at a bed & breakfast!

This appears to have been quite a nice place maybe 30 years ago, but it's showing its age. The lobby is nice, and there is a nice abandoned bar/restaurant that still houses a couple pool tables and vintage video games. We weren't there long enough to check out the pool. It's one of those motels where you park right in front of your door, assuming someone else hasn't taken up those spots. If you're on the second floor, don't expect an elevator. The room was a bit cramped, and I really missed having a sink outside the bathroom. The best part of the room was the bed, which was actually pretty comfortable. Breakfast was pretty basic. The line for the single waffle maker was too long to bother with, though I'd had my fill of those already on the trip. It was convenient to Interstate 26, and not far from the Tanger Outlet. But there are quite a few other hotel options in the immediate area.

Safe. Clean. Very well-priced. Friendliest staff I've dealt with in years anywhere. Very convenient. Bonus: Stayed during son's tour of CofC and
it was HOT in mid-July. The outdoor pool is in the center courtyard and spotless and sparkling. The grounds are well manicured and flowers and crepe myrtles are everywhere. Older hotel that is well maintained and safe. That's all I ask for. Lots of folks use it for the cruises. Good clientele based on the nicer and newer cars in lot. 8 minutes from downtown C-town.

Thanks you for taking the time to write your glowing comments of our hotel. The large outdoor pool is definitely a favorite amongst our guests in the hot summer months. We are conveniently located close to downtown and many of the local attractions. We have quite a few guests stay with us before or after their cruise. We offer free parking during the course of the cruise which allows our guests to save on the cruise port parking fees. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon when you visit your son at the College of Charleston!
