  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Stayed there only because no other vacancies could be found. Never again!

Stayed 4 nights in Oct 2018


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Had a lot of trouble booking, ended up overbooked and had to move further away than we wanted.

This motel was listed as 2 stars and was close to where we wanted to go. If this is 2 stars I would hate to see 1 star. There were no tissues or cups, and the sheets were actually dirty, they had not been changed and had stains on them. The man at the desk wasn't very nice about it either, he gave my husband the new sheets to change them and told us to stay at a holiday inn if we wanted a nice hotel. I want to stay with local businesses, but not this one!

Older motel and it was in the process of updating the rooms. But room floor was nasty dirty. My feet turned black from it. The free WiFi signal was very very poor and constantly dropped out. The sink in the room didn't have cold water. The room lacked a hair dryer or coffee maker. No iron or ironing board. The shower floor was very very slippery. We had to buy a shower mat just to shower there without killing ourselves. I was happy that they had smoking allowed rooms and that they accepted pets. We were forced from our home due to hurricane Florence and had to bring our cat. It was a great comfort to have her with us. All in all the staff were excellent! Very friendly and helpful. When we needed to extend our stay a few days longer they gave us a reduced rate!
