If this is the only motel you can afford...save your money and go on your trip another time....We found a dead cockroach on our bed and the carpet wasn't vaccumed. It was also very noisy at night...you can hear people talking loudly and we heard sirens all night long. We woke up and were in the "lobby" at 9 and...

We booked this hotel so we would be close to the Air Force Base. Our daughter and her two kids were taking a MAC flight back to Germany. The price was exceptionally cheap but we had stayed at Rodeway Inns before so figured "How bad could it be for one night?" Yikes! First, the room they gave me and my...

I stayed 2 nights and my buds stayed 1 night. Not much to brag about. Did have wifi. Alex's rest across street was best thing I saw. Staff very friendly.

This is a very typical motel. Do not expect more above that. Pros: 1. Inexpensive. This motel had the best rate for the period we stayed. 2. Free Wireless Internet/Wifi 3. Free breakfast. They provided Biscuits, donuts, breads, milk, and coffee, juice in the reception room from 6:30am to around 9am (cannot remember the exact time). 4. Free parking 5....

Don't waste your time, money, or effort here!... Run-down, pool closed, drapes in windows falling down, parking lot a disaster! Owners on the shady side as well, with an "F" rating from the Better Business Bureau and failure to answer any complaints. I lost my payment for a room I reserved, only because on arrival, I refused to stay here...

Stayed there on our first night in Charleston area. We have stayed at ABVI before and knew that they were just basic hotel rooms. Well, this was quite worse than we expected. First of all, the location is very poor....single women travelling alone...don't do it! The chain on the door was broken, the door didn't close securely...thank goodness my husband...
