Staff were very friendly and welcoming, the lobby area is so wonderfully decorated in very modern tones and accessories but once up in the room it's like two different places, such a let down. The room was so dated that we thought we'd stepped back in time a decade. The areas definitely do not gel. I hope there is a... More

Came for a weekend. Previously lived in the Summerville area for a number of years, and in fact, the Country Inn and Suites next door to this property was my home away from home for a few months while relocating about 12 years ago! Having said that, for whatever reason, hotel rooms were scarce for this particular weekend and as... More

Stayed here over a weekend. I'm an IHG member and generally stay at those properties when able. In my opinion, this property is nowhere near the IHG standard. I'll start with the good: The lobby is new and looks pretty good. The room was pretty large, had a small fridge and a Keurig with some coffee. The front desk folks... More

It appears the hotel has been recently remodeled (and some finishing work is still be done)....but everything was clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable but the bed linens didn't fit the bed properly and kept sliding off the corners of the bed. The Internet was okay (but kept dropping the connection frequently).
