I drove up to the hotel at night and could not really tell what condition it was in. I knew it was cheap and I didn't expect much. But it went way beyond being just old and cheap. In the morning light I saw that the outside of the hotel looks like a building about to be torn down. Inside the room: light bulbs are hanging from the ceiling; bathroom tile is broken and repaired with gobs of caulk; walls and ceilings are stained badly; bathroom sink is ugly and poorly repaired; bed sheets were stained - seemed clean, just badly discolored by stains; bed blanket had cigarette burns in it (even though this was a no-smoking room); carpet has holes; bath linens are tiny and scratchy; electrical outlets are loose; place is absolutely filthy.
Check-in clerk was nice and friendly. Check-out clerk was rude and acted like he couldn't care less about anything. "breakfast" consisted of donut holes, juice and coffee.
The places needs a lot of work. Hard to believe authorities allow this place to operate as a public hotel.
The wi-fi was slow.
Lumberton, NC is a pretty bad place for hotels anyway, but this one scrapes the bottom of the barrel. If you're heading south, push on to Florence, SC - much better choice and a much nicer community. If you're heading north, push on to Wilson, NC for the same reason.More
