Rooms must be pre-paid at the desk on arrival, very old school. Makes you wonder what kind of people stay here, but the place seems "clean enough" and I never felt unsafe at any point. The owner felt comfortable checking me in while she was in her pajamas so obviously this isn't a high-risk area. Hotel is just off the road but the path to get in isn't obvious, thankfully there's good signage to help. Just down the hill to one side are small local stores, and just down the hill to the other side is the University, so the location is nice. Parking is free but limited by the small lot, if things are tightly booked you might end up having to cram your car into an odd spot. Overall a perfect place for a cheap price, it's exactly what you'd expect of an old motel.
Pros: Cheap, and right by the highway. This is a perfect place when you just need a cheap spot to crash.
Cons: Room was musty. I'm sure it's one part recently cleaned cigarette smoke judging from all the butts outside, to one part stale rooms. Didn't trigger my allergies, just a little stuffy, luckily the A/C had a "dehumidify" setting which was perfect.

Pros: Breakfast is a muffin and coffee. It is old, yet well kept! I left some articles in the room and the owner was kind enough to call and tell me they were left . We will pick them up.on the way home from.our vacation! Many places would not have bothered to contact me. Thank you for your kindness!
Cons: We were there only 7 hours to sleep on the way to Myrtle Beach!
