Proceed with Caution

If you are looking for something near the SC Board walk/ beach then this is the place if you dont mind a few things.... The down side for this trip was the room itself. Not clean. Wear shoes of some sort at all times on these floors. Trust me its safer. Not to mention the roach on the ceiling. Overall would not come again or reccommend.

Great getaway

I was very pleased with this hotel: good central location, large room, clean and newly remodeled. The best of all was a large pillow top bed with four pillows, so comfy. so enjoyable..... Breakfast was also good and plenty to choose from. Front desk staff was very nice, checked us in early and was very courteous though out our stay. Overall this is a good hotel despite its a little overpriced during summer. I would recommend it to my friends and stay there again myself.

Fine for the family

Seems like the place has recently been remodeled . Clean enough - a priority for me. Decent breakfast and fast and friendly check-in and -out. Walls are thicker than most other hotels, which we appreciated as the guests next door came to hang out with friends. We are likely to return.

Room not what was reserved

When I arrived, there was no one in the lobby, then after they found out there was only 1 person staying in room,I was given a room with 1 queen bef that was not what wad reserved and had a damaged door that was difficult to lstch. Room was chsned but not much better. Heater wad noisy, bed was uncomfortable, and in the mirning there was noone in the lobby snf no continential breakfast. Not recommended and Quality Inn needs to look into this locstion. Not up to their standards and not worth $100/night off season.

Needs a remodel

The cost of this hotel for 1 overnight stay was excessive for the condition of the building, furniture, carpeting, bedding, etc.

Comfy reasonable hotel with attentive staff

I enjoyed my stay and everything was clean, efficient and the staff was very friendly and amenable. I did have to lug my baggage upstairs - but 2nd floor is always safer...
