I have mixed emotions about this stay. Being a truck driver is hard on the body so when we saw a room with a jacuzzi we jumped on it. It was a bit pricey for what we got...or lets say, didn't get. The carpet was stained in several places so that was a turn off immediately but Other than that... More

Well priced. Convenient location. My room had a hot tub which I didn't use. Staff was friendly. Property was clean and well-maintained. Here for a business trip.

I've stayed here several times while on business in the area. Given the dearth of decent accommodations in the area, this stock Holiday Inn Express qualifies as a luxury property. In reality it's pretty much a standard HIE and that's not bad. The rooms are large and clean, the beds comfortable and rates reasonable. The breakfast buffet is fine. The... More

If you've stayed at a Holiday Inn Express before, you pretty much know what to expect from this one. The chain is not the finest in the country, but they don't claim to be. However, if what you need is a place to stay, reasonably priced, have breakfast, and not meet with any unpleasant surprises, HIE is a reliable choice.... More

We stayed in this motel when evacuated from Beaufort County. The staff was very pleasant and helped us with restaurant choices and best routes to get to some of the local sights.

Clean and conveniently located, this Holiday Inn Express met our needs nicely. Other guests were rather loud but not obnoxiously loud. We prefer to stay in a location where you enter the room on the inside of the facility. We would be willing to stay here again.
