Long term tenants, dirty people. No sitting (chairs)
I would have gave a better review if my room had all the towels and amenities that normally come with a room. But they were short staffed, so I had to go down to the counter and ask for them. The manager was nice and room was clean, just no towels. Small room for sure but huge bed. All in all, fair for price range.
The only good thing was close to the boardwalk and the person at the front desk was nice
Rooms are not the ones they show on the pictures,and was some people the live there at the facility and I thing some suspicious activities happen wen we came back to the room for the price you pay you can stay at motel 6 .
homless people walking around property. unsafe enviroment. rooms not well kept. upon arriving the check in clerk said her maid went to lunch and never returened so she had her daughter (minor) stripping beds. People begging for change and smokes. was really disappointed. not to mention people also live there.
I will said pictures on website,...probably 10 years old
Room was really bad and front desk person is the worst ever. I don't know how this place still open been infested with cockroaches......
It was quiet
It was three stories
Location Staff was polite For what it is, not great, it served purpose for me for last minute visit
No where to hang clothes Noisy people in area late at nite few amenities such as soap
It was horrible .. A dive , way overpriced !!
The bathroom was clean. A fridge was nice.
The room was said to be non smoking and it smelled of smoke .
That they were the only place open.with vacancies
The room was in.horrible.condition I wouldn't recommend it
The location was convenient. The room staff worked hard on cleanliness but quite outdated. Bed was firm and comfortable.
Parking lot, walkways, stairs were filthy. Downtrodden people wandering around. Pet friendliness is great but watch out where you step. Owner/Management need to step up big time! There were no washcloths or convenient information. I'll stay away thanks
The sheets were clean, that was the best of it. Location is good for downtown SC.
At 200 dollars a night it was shockingly bad. The adjoining rooms faucet made such a noise it woke me up with its screeching sound every time they ran it,. The road noise was intrusive because its single glazed. The outside corridors smelt of urine and rotting food and needed cleaning. The curtain had burn holes in it.
everything was old and appeared neglected
I like how there was only carpet where the bed was and the rest was rug I say this cause we went to beach a lot came wet and didnt have to worry about a wet rug
I didn't like how there was a lot of bums outside smoking weed otherwise than that it was good
Location to broadway
Didn't hold online reservation for floor room for handicap spouse. Put us in a room upstairs which was very had for sponse to get up and down. Gave our room away and put us near scum and drug addits. Service was bad. Room did not have towels, ice bucket, frig. As stated online. Had to go to office to get these items. When I got back to the room, sponse noticed blood on a couple of the towels. I was propositon in parking lot while having a cigarette. While entering room, scum person asked me for if had a crack pipe. Phone was broken. Hotel states pet friendly but,no area for dogs to potty/poop. They had to use the parking lot. There were quite a few scummy people along the side of the motel parking lot where our room was located. Room had free wi fi but, no one knew the code for us to access. Would never recommend this motel. I give a very, very poor rating.
Easy to find. Parking close to room.Not a bad motel if you are just looking for a place to sleep.
The office smelled like urine.expensive for what you get. no shampoo or wash clothes in the room.
I like the staff is very friendly and there are microwave and refrigerator.
I don't like the room smell to cigarrette
the grounds were dirty and dank, the room is the size of a box, towels were very poor quality with rust stains. the whole place needs a thorough cleaning.
good location, cheap, staff was very nice.
room smelled like smoke
The room was clean, the stuff were very friendly and it wasn't noisy.
The wi-fi didn't work all the time
the location was close to the beach and boardwalk.
no amenities at all, no coffee, no alarm clock, no place to hang up clothes no shampoo or conditioner. I didnt feel safe in the parking lot.
This was by far the worst motel I have ever visited. It smelled, there was graffiti on the door inside, the facility was dirty on the outside, the shower leaked water when the people upstairs used their shower. . The water came out the vent.. When I called to tell the front desk, the said "its ok, its only a little.." The towels had stains on the, the blankets did to... And worst of all the toilet was stopped up... Will never go back!!!!
