My room was welled clean and neat. I just wish that the come came more complete with a refrigerator and microwave. The floor that my room was assigned to was located in a quite area of the hotel. The hallways were nice and clean. I also wish that I did not have to travel to the first floor each time...

I have traveled to many hotels and I can say this the best experience I have had. The rooms were nice with hardwood flooring. They were also very clean and spacious. The staff was especially helpful and friendly. The clerk who checked us in Kimberly was wonderful. She helped my grandmother to her room and also went out of her...

Never stayed at this motel until just recently. Motel was newly renovated. Clean & comfortable. Waking distance to decent restaurants, Texas Roadhouse, Outback Steakhouse and IHOP. Very friendly & accommodating staff. For $45.99 it was a very pleasant surprise and truly a great bargain. Motel is well maintained. We will come back again in the summer on our way to...

I absolutely love what they have done to the place the new updates are awesome the only thing I wish Is that the rooms had more to look at as far as decor and FREE WIFI but other than that great job the hard wood floors was a big plus and the staff is great

I was VERY surprised by the cleanliness of this hotel! We are usually very meticulous about where we stay, choosing 3-4 stars hotels because I am OCD and can't stand nasty rooms. This time we were looking for a budget hotel for a quick overnight stay and went with this room even though we were concerned about the cleanliness ratings....

We chose this location for an overnight stay while attending a graduation at Fort Jackson. Easy to find. Easy to park. Elevators. Comfortable room. Quiet AC. Received a senior citizen discount. Paid for lower tier wifi, but had trouble connecting & staying connected & could not use both our computers at the same time.

I won't mention that this room in the 21st century had a 19 inch tube television. I will mention the nasty, stained carpet, the nasty stained curtains and the nasty, stained mattress. The desk clerk was nice but this place is gross! The hallways reeked of smoke and not just cigarette smoke and there was a homeless man who spent...
