“Inexpensive and Right off the highway”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

Hotel was a little run down but clean. Danyell and the rest of the staff were very friendly. Quiet and continues to allow smokers. Right off I-95, Easy off and easy on. Will stop there again! Missed breakfast but the breakfast area looked clean and tidy. JC 12/26/13

This was formerly a HoJo and is advertised as being recently remodeled and updated. Our opinion: They have a ways to go. BUT, for the price ($42/nite) it filled the bill.

First the negatives (1) the door was a huge problem to open/close; needs replacement (my wife could not open or close the door - not enough strength). (2) No towels, soap, etc. but I tracked down the maid (very cooperative and nice) and got those necessities. (3) TV needs replacement plus there was no channel guide card. (3) No sink drain plug.

The positives. (1) Inexpensive for an overnight. We stopped at the SC Welcome Ctr. and found their ad/coupon. (2) Clean. (3) convenient. (4) Continental breakfast was very good (but the coffee was really weak) - more than adequate.

I stopped here on my way home from Florida to Virginia. This is a good pet friendly place, that is inexpensive and right off of I95. Danyell at the front desk checked me in, very quickly and friendly. This is nice to see a smiling, welcoming face after a long day driving. I would recommend this to my friends or family while traveling this route. Thanks! KAstalos

This is a perfect place to stop on I-95 if you need pet-friendly accommodations.
The staff, especially Danyell was very courteous and rooms were very nice.
Will definitely use this as our half-way stay on our trip from MD to Florida. JV 12/26/13

We travel a lot from the area and decided to stay here this time and it was JUST perfect. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. Very convenient from I-95 and had no road noise. The best part was when we were checking in and the clerk brought out the fresh hot cookies! Great stop, great stay!

Nice little pet-friendly motel in a quiet little area far from the sound of the 1-95 traffic. Our room was at the end, almost to a cotton field. The staff was friendly, and actually called us once to make sure we were satisfied with the room. I just hope this motel stays as nice as it is, and can keep out the loud, rowdy, and property-damaging crowd.
