Online this hotel looked good. Outside pulling in it looked good. I booked the room even after reading the bad reviews. There were no other rooms available in Orangeburg. Once I got inside I was shocked that this could even pass any kind of inspection. I took pictures. I have more too. My receipt said King/non-smoking. The room reaped of an old bar room. Burn holes in the carpet and drapes. An ash tray on the desk. The ceiling had water damage, the bathroom walls and ceiling had water damage but an attempt was poorly made to repair them. They didn't even sand and paint the repairs. The bathroom was dirty. We couldn't even bring our clothes (suits, and dress clothes) into the room because of the stench for fear they would smell. The lamps were broken, only one of them worked, the outlet at the sink would trip each time the bathroom light was turned off. That's strange from an electricians perspective, my trade. However the staff was nice. I did not feel safe. There were beat up cars parked all over from what looked like residents of the hotel. The breakfast was cheap. Waffles were good, coffee was good.
