Staff were friendly and the room was clean and attractive - lots of pillows and cable stations available. In spite of a large high school group, guests were assigned rooms that ensured a quiet night.Restaurants are in walking distance.

"Teaveling with pooch"

Pet friendly main selling point. GMgr is a Mr. Patel. Ceiling needed repair, and the effects of being an older property showed. Bathroom was a poorly done patch job, with the toilet only 12? off the floor. Their breakfast offering was on the light side, and not presented very well. But the coffee was putrid. Not vad, but there are better options in the immediate area.

Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was lovely and the breakfast lady was very welcoming un like many other staff members. Being that we're paying costumers, it would be nice to greet your guest with a warm hello. Oooh yea there was a roach in our room and it was brought to the front desk attention, they reply by saying that it is the state bug! correct me if i'm wrong but i find that Very interesting! I couldn't confirm that information online 2 hours later. ??? Weird. sorry but it was a roach and the matter should be addressed or looked into This review is based on my experience! Honestly the stay was nice place to lay our heads for a few nights

"Good place to pull over for the night"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Mar 25, 2014

We have stayed at this hotel several times in the past, it had become a little worn but has recently been updated and nicely. This hotel services military families visiting the nearby Fort Jackson so it gets a lot of traffic, but well kept. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they know the area very well and can be counted on for advice on placed to eat. I am sure our frequent travels through the region will land us at this location again when it is time to pull off the road. It is a quite location where you can relax. And the best part, you can bring your best friend, in a nice hotel.
