Check in was good. The elevator and hallways were dirty, food on the floor in the elevator and the hallway needed to be vacuumed. Our room was a nice size, a king suite, with microwave and refrigerator. The bathroom was a nice size, but smelled like urine. The bed was hard. The pool was not clear. The hot tub water...

The property was a bit aged, which happens but they lacked attention to details in terms of cleaning - saw a stir stick sticking out from under the bureau for example. But the room was spacious, the bed was comfortable and quiet. Location was great as it was close to Fort Jackson. Buffet was adequate, staff was friendly and helpful....

I travel for a living so I have stayed in countless hotels. This hotel does not live up to its company's namesake and is far from a 3 star hotel. The carpet in the hallways is old and is coming up in spots; the paint in the rooms is old and is chipping away in many spots; the furniture and...

I thought this was supposed to be a great hotel if it's by Carlson. The rooms are dirty and smell sour and sweaty. I had to switch the room and it's still not much better. There are scratches, stains of some sort, and marks all over the walls both in the rooms and the hallways. It's noisy. There were no...
