When is a new hotel not a new hotel? When it's had a face lift. This place looks nice and new from the outside but in the rooms its' a diff story. Old tub and fixtures in the bath, worn in mattresses. Overly strong water pressure in shower which could not be adjusted. The room stayed warm even with the A/C unit all the way up; the plastic air cleaning screens were clogged with dust/dirt. Lobby was new but the computer sitting in the middle of breakfast area was Nintendo level. There's a pool I dont think was open yet...very small. My room looked out on a gas/convenience store next door. Off I-26 exit but outside of 'town', which was fine as we were passing through. Folks were nice, but this place needs to know how to renovate and not just update. TONS of AT hikers stay here so the trail must be nearby.
