Gave myself quite a "treat" last night. Left New Bern, NC for Greenville, SC too late in the day to make it home, so knew I would have to stop about half way at a motel for the night. Half way is Dillon, SC. I have stayed at just about every motel in Dillon, and each time, promise myself I...

I always enjoy the view from the top of the tower. And the steak house is located in a good area. Not to mention juicy steaks!! The indoor pool stays a 72degs year round. Sauna with its steam get u ready for a walk to see the sites.

I rode by here many times as a child and always longed to go. My husband surprised me with not only a trip to the park but dinner and spending the night! It was amazing! We both enjoyed the experience way more that imagined! The grounds are old but clean and well maintained. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and...

We stayed here probably as a half joke, but had a great time! You get what you pay for so for $50 you get a clean, outdated room with wood paneling. Can't complain about it for a stopover - fun stores, a few places to eat (although none of them were good.....seriously, the best food that we found was the...

Great place. Great for family get away in the summer. Great food near by and stuff to do. Pet friendly and very clean. Great price. The WiFi is spotty but free and in different areas of the area. Wish there was more places like this. If you want a 5star hotel go elsewhere. Everything in my room is great. I...

We stopped here for a night heading back from a Christmas trip. This place is defiantly quirky but very enjoyable. If you are looking for a bed turn down and mint on the pillow then move along! If you are looking for relive the days when you rode across country in the back of your parent's rambler wagon, then this...

We stayed here last night on our way to Florida. The first room we were given, room 111, had a broken heating system and the room was 86 Degrees and could not be cooled. We were given the room next door instead. The new room smelled of old cigarette smoke. The pillows felt like you were sleeping on lumps of...

Great spot to take a break and walk around. There are things to look at and gifts at decent prices! The staff are very nice and they are friendly. Just off of Route 95 its the perfect place to get snacks and gas up the vehicle. Its bright at night!
