This place was dirty, old and dilapidated. I only stayed here because I was tired and they were pet friendly. They do not serve one star. If you ever see me here again - please shoot me. Save your money and spend just a little more for a better place.

They were very good al; what they do for the price. The hotel needs a facelift and it looks old. the room was clean but the furniture is dated. the televisions were old. I think that it is priced a little high for such a cheap run down hotel. Choice seems to not care about it. I prefer the other... More

We are a commercial general contractor who works all over the U.S. and I have never had such bad customer service. When our crew ended up switching hotels because this hotel was so nasty, the front manager refused to give me a refund. He claimed there is a policy against this. Which he never bother to mention when I originally... More

It's hard to write a review on somewhere that you haven't actually stayed. We booked through our travel agent as a budget stop between Charlotte and Hilton head Island. And it was about $58 (£30 ish). First impressions weren't great but my confidence wasn't great after meeting the two Indian chaps who ran it. The room decor was dated and... More

As I stayed there during the winter months, I can't rate the pool area. However, the room, parking lot & services is something I will comment on.

I need to start by saying that Mr. Desai, the manager here, was about as pleasant and accommodating as any lodging manager I have ever met. If the review was based on his effort/intentions alone, the rating would be Excellent. One problem with the motel is that the driveway is a poorly maintained, small turnoff from a very busy road,...

Centrally located on I26 just Northwest of I20, plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Also a large parking area for larger vehicles. Plenty other restaurants deliver to hotel as well. No vending machines except for soda machines on premises. Breakfast the next morning is kinda weak but the do offer something.
