I stayed at this Best Western on the way to see friends in South Carolina and was impressed in every way. Reception at 10:30 pm was quiet but friendly and efficient. I was a little wary of what was in store as I entered the outside entry. It was old and worn looking and the door to the hallway creaked upon closing and then banged shut. So much for being quiet and not disturbing other guest.
The hallway carpet was a little dated, but it was clean and well lit. The room was impressive. There was a very comfortable king bed, desk, easy chair, ample dresser and 50 inch newer tv. Wi-fi was easily accessed and the signal was strong. Each lamp had 2 electrical outlets for charging devices...Nice for the business traveler who would need to do some work from their room before retiring...
The bathroom was also a little dated, but spotless, provided hot water with only a little wait, and had drains that flowed freely.
I woke rested and ready to go the next morning. I didn't have a chance to use the pool or exercise center. However, both looked well maintained and the exercise center had a good selection of modern looking equipment.
Breakfast the next morning was very satisfactory. Eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, fruit, cereal, yogurt, toast, etc. The steam table was well lit, clean and inviting and there was staff present keeping food stocked and cleaning as needed. They all were smiling and friendly. The coffee was really weak, but there's a Starbucks across the interchange that I was in and out of fairly quickly.
So, if you are looking for a place to stay overnight, or even a couple of days, the $94 rate was very reasonable for what I would characterize as one of my better motel encounterss.
