The local reputation was not great, but the motel has been very recently completely renovated and we found it very clean, and can easily recommend it to others. We ate dinner at a local Mexican restaurant recommended by the motel staff--very good authentic Mexican food (not Tex-Mex) and many Hispanic families dining there. Breakfast was at a local diner a block or so from the motel, also recommended by the motel staff. A real South Carolina local eating place, full of colorful locals, and extremely friendly, and very reasonably priced. Walhalla is a very small town, so getting around is no problem if you have a car. We hiked the beautiful state park trails, waterfalls, etc. and had the trails to ourselves most of the time. It seems that everyone was just across the line in North Carolina where you had to literally stand in line to get on a park trail, also beautiful but very crowded. Discover western South Carolina! We are so glad that we did.
The museum has many things about the early life in the upper corner of SC. Stumphouse Mountain has a tunnel started in the 1840's before gunpowder never completed. Fall leaves are nice on Cheohee Rd, but the road snakes everywhich way and the Walhalla Fish Hatchery is cool on the hotter days... a relaxing and informative place' Oconee State Park has cabins and campsites, a lake and trails. On Fridays, they have a square dance. I went there once before, and the fiddle player was not showing off, but I recognized him.... one of the best in the country. Not far away is the Chatooga River with some really good tubing/rafting/kayaking. Not much in town opens until Tuesday at 11 AM, but there are some nice antique stores. Had meat and two sides for reasonable price at Pete's.
