Unfortunate Experience

Upon arrial, there was no clerk at the front desk, I waited about 10 minutes. The room was suppose to be a non-smoking, micro and refrig. The clerk said they only had 4 rooms meeting that criteria. My room was on the 2nd floor (no elev.) and it was a smoking room. The bathroom linens were soiled and the room needed repair. I have pictures. I tried to place a wake up call between 8:00-8:30, no answer. I think you should not endorse this hotel, there is a difference between needing renovation and NOT clean needing repair.

Not bad for one night

Needs some updating. Not bad for the price. Stayed there twice on the way to Myrtle Beach. Never saw the breakfast that was advertised. Pay a little more for an indoor room. It's worth it. Good pool for the kids but bring your own towels. There aren't any at the pool.

Okay, but

I picked this hotel as it was the only one with a pool still open after mid August as it is indoors. Unfornately the water was ice cold. The place is dated and the restaurant never opened but we loved the indoor access from the lobby which I never even saw before. Beds were old and sagging but clean. small frig in room was very handy. A/C worked very good. Many places to eat nearby, gas station next door and one minute to route 95..

Booked at Ramada turned out being Knights Inn

To start with I booked with Ramada Inn. At check in I was told my room was in the second build in the back. Which actually was a Knights Inn. Loud music and a lot of blacks roaming through the parking lot. I stayed the first night , but that was all I wanted ended up leaving and booked a room elsewhere. Definitely a bait and switch on this one.....Beware

Worst hotel I ever stayed in my life

I strongly suggest anyone to book this hotel. I won't recommend even if a room offered for $10 a night.

Scary

The location was convenient but I would have moved to a different hotel if I hadn't booked a package deal. I have stayed at Ramadas before before but this was terrible. My daughter went to get us coffee and there was a guy sleeping in the hall!! Everywhere there were doors that easily accessed from the street. We had an upstairs outside room but we had to lug our suitcases into the hotel then up stairs then out a door to get to our room. People were hanging out in the parking lot and throwing fire crackers. The continental breakfast was a joke, little cups for coffee and mini-muffins with a hand-written sign saying limit of 2 mini-muffins per guest. Needless to say, we went out for breakfast. There was a cigarette butt on the carpet by the door we had to go out to get to our room when we arrived on Thursday, it was still there when we left on Sunday. I think they were trying to upgrade in the bathroom, with new tub surrounds with magic marker writing still on it, no working fan in the bathroom, peeling paint in the bathroom, I could go on and on. I know it was a "cheap" hotel but that was no excuse for this. I took pictures for proof(haven't processed yet). Pool and fountains were not in working order, couldn't use the pool but everything smelled odd in the lobby. It was like they covered over the pool and lounge area with a roof and hooked a couple of buildings together to make a big lobby "convention area"!!!

Clost to DC

I decided to go to DC for the weekend on short notice and this was only an hour away. It made a nice last minute stop. It was clean, but it smelled slightly of cigarettes and the man next door had his door wide open and was laying in just his boxers (which management had nothing to do with) The lobby is interesting but not unclean
