"Dirty Rooms"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 22, 2014
A TripAdvisor Member | 
Unfortunately, our experience at this hotel was unpleasant. We arrived late 0100 after driving from the Orlando area and were tired. We had reserved 2 rooms. Upon checking into room #1, we found that the room had not been cleaned properly. There were hairs in the bath tub, but when cover sheet were turned back, it was obvious the sheets had not been changed as there was food, hair and other debris on the sheets. We were given a replacement room and found this room to be cleaner and moved everything into this room for the night, unfortunately, after we had changed for the evening, we noticed that there was a shortage of clean towels and a dirty bath towel was hanging on the back of the bathroom door. I phoned the front desk and they indicated that the towels would be brought up. After waiting about 30 minutes, we called the Front Desk again as we really did want to get to bed, (a staff change must have occurred), as I was told that if we wanted extra towels, we had to come to the front desk. I explained the situation that we checked in and our first room was not cleaned and were moved to this second room that was lacking towels and was told that they were going to be delivered and that we were not asking for additional towels, but simply the ones that should have been present when we checked in. The male on the other end of the phone was still reluctant to bring the towels and I insisted that I should not have to change out of my pyjamas to come to the front desk after being told they would be delivered, considering we had already been moved to this room after the first one was unacceptable. He brought the towels to the room, but was not pleasant when he handed to me and appeared to be put out that they had to be delivered, We had also reserved a second room for my son and daughter-in-law and their 2 children. There room reeked so badly of fresh smoke that it was nauseating to my grandchildren and we had to go back to the front desk to have them also moved to another room. These rooms were designated as non smoking. All in all - 2 rooms reserved - 2 rooms required us to change. The Front Desk Clerk both in the evening and then the morning when we checked out both gave the same impression by their comment that they were not surprised by the cleaning staff and this was not the first incident. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this property to other travelers.

"Bad motel living for high Charleston pricing"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 21, 2014
MrNate | Mesa, Arizona
While it may look like an attractive rate to stay here while in the Charleston area, this run-down two story motel is a sorry excuse for a place to rest your head. "But the location is so great" you might say, I would tell you that it's not close enough to the city to have charm, and not far enough to have a feeling of safety. "But I just need a bit of sleep" you might say, I would tell you that the beds are very uncomfortable and the miniscule mirror/sink areas are not large enough to use. "But I can sleep on rocks" you might say, I might then tell you about your new neighbors, the hock-a-loogie guy who practices for 2 hours at a time near your paper-thin walls that let you hear him in full high definition surround sound, and the nearby smokers who, by the smell of it, probably had your room last time they stayed here. "But it has this feature or that" you might retort, and I would let you know that, after a week of staying here, I promise you the quality of the features you desire (breakfast, pool, etc.) are far below what you would be comfortable with. Even basic staples of motel life, such as daily cleaning and functioning water fixtures, may and will be left behind as you struggle with your identity to see if there was some sort of evil that has beset your pathway to regular living. This is not a good place. Stay away.

"Does not deserve even one star!"

This hotel is horrible. Nothing but problem after problem after problem. We got a "smoke free" room that reeked of smoke. Front desk offered to bring aerosol spray to address the issue. Billing related issues. Incompetent staff. It's not worth the cheap price!

OK, not the worst and not the best. Food could have been presented better and tasted better. Motel was quite old. The beds had wonderful mattresses. I really disliked the shower curtain. The rooms were clean.
