Not impressed

Would not recommend Wed, Aug 12, 2015
The woman at the front desk was by far the least personable woman I have ever encountered in the 100 plus times I have stayed overnight in a hotel. The hotel is literally crumbling at the baseboards, elevators, hallways. The room had an unpleasant orange clean smell, but the room was pretty rough. The grout lines in the bathroom were embarrassing from a hotel management standpoint. The bed was really comfortable, which was the high point of my stay. Location is very close to the state house building and a short walk to nightlife.

Good location, rundown hotel

Would not recommend Tue, Aug 11, 2015
Stayed here while visiting USC and was great location. However this is a very rundown hotel and unless we were in a non-renovated room, in bad need of a facelift. It's also the first Choice hotel I've been to that charges $5.99 for the Continental Breakfast in the mornings! For shame :( For $100 a night in a room that has a ripped bath towel you can furnish breakfast in the morning. Yes, I said a ripped bath towel. Shameful.

University Orientation trip

Would not recommend Thu, Jul 23, 2015
Really not a pleasant place to stay. Service was poor and unorganized. Generally dirty through out. Only door in and out had people sitting on the steps smoking all evening when trying to check in. A bad hotel. Bad experience.

Tired Hotel

Would not recommend Sun, Mar 1, 2015
. Stayed here for 3 months on and off due to work. Only economical game in town. Roaches in the tub and room. Rooms are tired and old. AC/heater is motel type and some barely worked. Staff was nice enough. Even the electronics key didn't work and I was locked out for half the nice. Oh, got a coupon for a free breakfast. If you have a car, stay downtown. If on a limited budget, dont say you werent warned.
