It’s 9:47 pm and after a day at the Magnolia Plantation and evening at the beach we arrived back to our hotel to shower and go to bed. Instead we are Sri home 2 hours and 15 minutes. We pulled back the linen on one bed and seen blood stains immediately called down and was told she had to see if any was available. While the gentleman brought up linen my husband was inspecting the other bed and immediately saw more blood. I’m am so angry right now and disgusted we will be demanding answers as COVID-19 is very serious. The card says Hannah was the housekeeper which she didn’t do her job! Luckily we bring wipes spray and disinfect with us anyway because they don’t have any hand sanitizer at the elevators they are empty I told them that when we checked in around 2pm still after 9 there is none Read less

I do want to highlight that the staff was great - at check in the they provided ideas on things to do, the bus ran right on schedule and they gave some historical information, we even had room service during Covid and they were quick to provide a rollaway bed. However, the rooms are incredibly small for a family of 4. This would be a great place… Read more

However, the rooms are incredibly small for a family of 4. This would be a great place to stay --- if you were a solo traveler. It has a great location - close to downtown via the shuttle and a nice view of the Citadel. The hotel was clean but it was very apparent its age - no bathroom fans or ventilation, the vanity light is the same switch as the bathroom and the sliding doors/balcony are locked but were very dirty.

Recent renovation shows!! Hard wood floors compliment new furniture and comfortable bed/bedding. View of river is nice, no balcony access but great view. Staff were pleasant, we never had much of an interaction with them as we arrived late. Bed is super comfortable. USB charging lamps. Great value stay, we will definitely be coming back.

Jun 23, 2020 christinebA6329IG Weaverville, North Carolina

Stayed here for my 40th birthday weekend. Requested a Skyline View room and it was wonderful. The windows on the balcony doors REALLY NEED TO BE CLEANED but it was still an amazing view. sounds of the traffic were not nearly as bad as I anticipated. Was a great place to stay for our weekend trip and would stay here again.
