“Late night refuge.”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

Returning from South Carolina, we were looking for a late night hotel. Stopped at Best Western across the interstate which had an advertised cheap rate. Met by a nasty desk clerk, whose best rate was $89, take it or leave it. Worst experience I have EVER had at Best Western. Decided to try Motel 6 on other side of the interstate. Tom at the desk was more than willing to accept $49 rate for family of four. Big difference an interstate makes. One side Mr. Nasty, this side Nicest Guy you could ever meet. Tom let me know the pool closed at 11:00 so we still had an hour if we wanted to swim. I used to stay at Motel 8 years ago when it literaly was $8 and you fed the TV quarters. My first experience with Motel 6. VERY pleased. Room not much, two twin beds, very clean, very sparse, but VERY functional. Desk, counter, hanging rack, and TV stand all in one. Two side chairs. Not any "extra" room, but all we needed was a place to sleep. No frills, no free shampoo, conditioner, lotion but who needs another bottle of those? Vending machione offered for $1.10 each if you just want more. Bath/shower a little funky set in the corner of the bathroom. Could use a goose neck to make it more functional, but it got me wet, and that was all I needed for a shower. No "free" continental breakfast, but for the cost difference between Motel 6 and Best Western, we enjoyed breakfast at Cracker Barrel next door to the worst Best Western ... My Thanks to Tom and Motel 6 for providing what we needed, a welcome and inexpensive place to rest.

Wanted a reasonable place to stay and was pleasantly surprised! Room was small but very clean. Wifi worked perfectly. Walk in AAA rated was better than online rate. Pool was nice. Got in hot tub. Tub was not quite hot enough but ok and had WAY too much chemicals in it. About needed a snorkel LOL. But at least I knew it was clean! Steak house across parking lot was good and service was good. They made a great margarita!

If you want a bed and a clean room, you got it. The room is VERY small. Bathroom i actually quite big, though the shower is really awkward. Its a triangle shape. Comforter is made just for Motel 6, and is really fun! 27 inch TV with plenty of channels (they even had SPEED Channel!!!). Internet was VERY good. Bed was comfy, water was hot and the shower pressure was very strong. I used the outdoor jacuzzi but someone had filled it up too much, so when you turned the jets on, it overflowed. I didnt go in the pool. The room has no alarm clock, no tissues, and no shampoo. Bed and pillows were comfy. One of the maids was closing doors very loudly on my floor which woke me up. I did see a few of them and all were very nice AND spoke English! I did get a call at 11:57 asking if I planned to check out (nothing rude or anything). Hotel seems newer and is the nicest Motel 6 ive ever seen or stayed at. Its right off the highway but i never heard the highway from my room (and I was facing the highway). Plenty of food around + Wal-Mart and such. For $35, I couldnt beat it.

We travel with two small dogs. Nice place to stay when traveling with pets and no extra fees. Large pet walk area. Little heavy on the air freshner but the room was clean. We stayed two nights. Great front desk staff. No coffee pot in the room but fresh coffee is available in the lobby every morning. Close to restaurants.

What a great little find. We stopped here on our way to Hilton Head Island - all 18 of us (5 families). The staff were exceptional and very accommodating with keeping us all close together. Very reasonable and clean. Would stay there again!!

This Motel 6 has free wifi!!! Clean rooms and hallways, though my hall smelled of smoke, the room did not. Heard a dog bark once, but had been offered no pet floor (3rd). Can't beat the price ! Gentleman at desk was courteous, offered a no pet floor, and choice of locations. Handled a sudden gaggle of people efficiently. I'd stay there agin, absolutely.

Room Tip: If you don't mind 3rd floor, it's pet free--no barking in the night.
