Recent guest reviews

Close to restaurants. Really run down, old inside and out. Lots of stains and holes in walls.

Might be the worst hotel experience in my 35 adult years. No bolt lock or other mechanical lock on the door - just the electronic card swipe lock. Room completely unprepared for a guest. Old towels in the tub and on the counter. Both beds seemed as though they had been made but then napped in. It was as if someone had used the room that afternoon after housekeeping had been through. If it hadn't been 12:15 am after 16 hours of driving I would have asked for another room, As it was I confirmed someone else wasn't checked into the room and asked for sheets so I could change the bed before collapsing to sleep. Bathtub worst I've seen in probably 20 years - though in fairness the water pressure was good. Toilet lid did not fit the basin. Both beds uncomfortable. Stains of unknown origin on the walls and the window. To top it off there were three cars of Effingham's finest in the parking lot when I pulled in. Should have reserved in Charleston and stopped driving about an hour earlier.

It was fine. Obviously, an older place with some new paint. But just fine for our needs and situation. Breakfast was what is was.

Easy to find, plenty of parking. Outdoor swimming pool. Basic but were happy for the night.

First room kets didnt work, got new keys then the lights didnt work. Had to get a new room.

Clean, cheap, comfortable. Few basic maintenance issues. And breakfast could be better. Good price.

I would like to tell you the hotel is now under new management as of this week and I will be personally looking into these issues. I thank you for bringing this to my attention.
