"The room carpet was old and worn, and the bathroom was cramped. Limited menu. The airport shuttle didn't run in the early morning when I had a flight, so I had to take a taxi. Choose a better hotel.2015-12-20"
"Convenient to downtown and the Riverbanks Zoo. Easy access to I-20 and I-26. The hotel was affordable, clean, and comfortable. Easy check-in, and the clerk was kind and professional. She provided good directions to our venue and gave us a 1st floor room as we requested. The room was tidy, and the bed was comfortable. The housekeeper was pleasant and gave us extra towels. Breakfast had hot and cold selections and endless coffee. I'll definitely stay here again.2023-04-25"
"An average hotel. The room was OK, and the bed was comfortable. The shower door didn't close all the way, and the sink didn't drain unless I manually pulled out the stopper.

"We weren't happy that there were renovations underway during our stay. The room was clean and updated, but there was no microwave. No electrical outlets near the nightstands, and the outlets were loose. The bathroom lights were dim and had a yellow cast, so it was hard to put on makeup. Nice, helpful staff. The pool was closed.2020-02-17"
"The hotel room had a shabby appearance. No TV remote control, and the freezer had a burn hole. The bathroom was in bad shape, with trim separated from the call and cabinets with holes in them. There were no towels, and the office closed at 7 PM. There was a strong marijuana smell in the hallway and lobby. Breakfast was advertised, but it wasn't available. There was a sign about coffee in the office, but it didn't open until 11 AM. We had to drive 3 miles to BoJangles to get coffee. The rates were low, so I guess you get what you pay for.2020-04-20"

"The hotel room was tiny and didn't have a microwave or fridge. There was nowhere to put my belongings. I requested a room change; the 2nd room was the same except the bed was bigger. The curtains wouldn't close all the way, so the sun came in the room. I tried calling the front desk for 30 minutes, but no one ever answered. I wasn't happy and don't recommend staying here.2018-04-17"

"The motel was a bit out of the way. The 1st room smelled strongly of smoke, so I asked for a room change. The 2nd room had a strong mint smell, but that was acceptable. The room was a little worn and didn't have the best soundproofing, but I didn't expect much else for the price. The motel was fine for a place to sleep, but I wouldn't want my daughter to stay there by herself.2015-05-04"
"Affordable motel, but housekeeping was awful. We asked for a 1st floor room and were put in a pet room, even though we didn't have a pet. The carpet smelled like urine, and there was old garbage under the sink. I asked for a room change the next day, and was given a room that had been flooded. There were socks hanging in the bathroom. So for the 3rd time, we moved to another room.2015-04-03"
"Motel was affordable and nice, but needed elevators. An OK stay.2015-02-19"
"Extremely reasonable rates. The hotel was across the street from Palmetto Health, where my mother was in hospice, and there were restaurants in the area. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and there was a kitchenette, sofa bed, and work desk. I didn't have my dogs with me, but the hotel was pet-friendly.

At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
