Hell Hole
September 21, 2018

Come for the stinking dumpsters, stay for the parking lot prostitutes! Filthy, filthy, filthy! Bed spread and blankets riddled with cigarette burns and blood stains (in a non-smoking room!), no coffee pot, broken shower head, A/C held together with packing tape, area looks like a beer fight took place, rude staff (young man behind counter told me, when I complained, that my room was "an upgrade"). Was traveling during Hurricane Florence so I stripped the bed, used a blanket from my car and kept my dog close. Was being used as a Welfare Hotel. Horrible. Wash your feet after walkinb on the floors!

Horrible Place
September 17, 2018

We recently stayed at the Red Roof Inn, East Columbia, SC. We had to evacuate from North Carolina, because of Hurricane Florence. The only positive thing I can say about this location, the staff are very nice. We reserved three rooms at this location. The rooms are old, run down, and filthy. The linens, sheets, and mattresses are stained. The floors are filthy, a wet paper towels wiped across the floor, made it turn black, we refused to take off our shoes. One of the first rooms we booked, was full of cockroaches, a family member killed over 40 in two hours. Under the beds we found trash, condoms, and other questionable debris. We we're going to stay for three nights. It was so bad, we slept in our vehicles the first night, and all of us decided to leave the next morning, rather than stay in this roach infested dump that smells like an old ashtray. We decided, we would rather drive two and a half hours through a hurricane without a shower, and ride out a hurricane at home, than stay another moment in that Inn, it was that bad. Just Horrible!

Nice staff

First tried to give us a room where the ceiling was coming down and falling pieces of drywall on the bed. Went back to front desk gave us a different room and it was nice and clean. Everyday we had to have them recode our key but staff was awsome and very nice.

We have been using Red Roofs when we travel for a few years now. We don't need (or expect) much, just a place to crash for a few hours. We generally arrive late & leave early. We do, however, expect it to be clean & the few amenities offered to actually work. This was our second (and last) stay at this location. The tub was not only filthy but there were also numerous long black hairs from a previous guest left behind. Disgusting! The sink also had them. Ugh. We had 2 towels, 1 hand towel & NO washcloths! The bathroom door was broken around the lock area as if someone had kicked it in at some point. The microwave was full of crumbs & the timer did not work resulting in my wife's heated up cofee overflowing inside. As a result the microwave was cleaner when we left than when we arrived. The A/C didn't cycle on & off very well & was barely passable on a hot night, I don't like to stiff working people as I spent 50 years as one but the maid who prepared our room got just what she deserved...nothing! I will say the checkin was fine. The girl at the desk was pleasent & friendly. The best part of our stay was the Lizards Thicket restaurant next door.

Wanted a quick place to go off the interstate, this was off a beaten path more or less. Check in was easy and the staff was really nice. Room was over priced. Seemed to be updated yet had already had damage to the walks, floors and bathroom. Sketchy area. Smelled weed outside my door and my heat did not work.
