    « Great find for the price »

    My husband and I stopped here for one night. It is an older hotel but it was clean, the staff was friendly, bed was pretty comfortable other than the pillows, and breakfast selection was decent. We would definitely stay here again if in the area, especially for the price.

    « Clean, comfortable place to stay »

    We stayed here the night of April 4th, on our way back to Canada from Florida. It was immaculately clean, the bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay. The coffee machine has individual sterile packs of coffee which also double up as the tray that goes into the machine. A very nice feature, since there are no bacteria from previous usages! Breakfast in the morning was good.

    « This sppearsa to be an old Howard Johnson's renovated. »

    This motel , although older, had been upgraded with great IT outlets. It was very clean and great beds, There were a lot of fast foods places handy, but we could not find a nice restaurant. The breakfast was adequate but rather difficult to find your way around, many of us could not find napkins and other things that would have made it a better experience.

    « A Best Western Surprise! »

    Found this hidden gem through a referral from an already fully booked Best Western nearby. It was refreshing to stay at a smaller location, but still have all the ammendities. Front Desk staff was so friendly, pleasant & helpful. Couldn't of ask for a nicer room & felt safe there. Large parking spaces & breakfast buffet included. The price was very affordable & I will return again.

    « Great find »

    We hit bad weather traveling down I-95 and stopped in Manning SC for the night. We lucked out and found a room at the Sure Stay by Best Western. Being unfamiliar with the name, our expectations weren't very high but to our suprise our stay was great! The desk clerk, Oprah, was a rock star and made us feel right at home. She even gave us tips on where to go for dinner and directions to the nearest Walmart for forgetten items. Room was nice and clean and the price was unbeatable.

    « Sure you may stay @SureStay »

    Brand new or fully renovated place. Everything we need for a short stay was there. Friendly personnel. Breakfast was included, but available only for early birds. Nothing to complain about, however pillows were really uncomfortable for us, as we prefer ?fluffy unicorns? to sleep on.

    « April 14/15 »

    We hadn't tried this chain before but as it was BW affiliated we decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. The location I\\s great, just off I 95. The breakfast was very good with an attendant there most of the time being engaged with guests and keeping the breakfast area stocked. The lighting in the room was quite hi-tech and effective. Room amenities were very good. The tub was quite slippery and no additional tub mat was there. The area around the door knob/locks needed a good scrubbing. Also, there appears to have been an outdoor pool area, at one time, but the pool has been filled in and no longer there. Would stay here again if in the area.

    « First Class Hotel »

    Highly recommended--pet friendly, beautiful suite. May need to book in advance as there are only 45 rooms. Only negatives--lack of any type of light fixture over sink which made shaving impossible. Also, on reservation form 2 days in advance, requested ground floor room due to need to walk the dog--front desk denied receiving this info and we were given 2nd floor suite.

    « Wonderful! »

    Very clean, we got a suite with 1 king bed to stay in on our drive down to Florida from New York. Reasonably priced and plenty of places to eat around! Room service knocked on our doors in the morning and brought fresh towels and more shampoos because there was more of us than usual in a 1 bedroom. Only stayed for a Night but they were very accommodating and sweet! Quiet room, with a TV, mini fridge, microwave, king bed and pull out couch! Bathroom was huge with beautiful lighting and very clean. We didn't drink any coffee but it was there to make along with shampoos, soaps, and a shower cap! We would definitely come back!

    « Newly remodeled »

    I booked this hotel because it was associated with Best Western. The person checking us in was very friendly. It is a pet friendly hotel and since I am allergic to dogs I asked not to be next to a room with an animal. Our room and bathroom was newly remodeled and had very good lighting. We went out to dinner and upon our return two doors away from our room was a barking dog by the window. The owners were probably out to dinner too and didn't realize that their dog would continually bark. Otherwise our stay was fine. Breakfast in the morning was good and as I said before the personnel was friendly and accommodating.

    « Very Disappointing »

    I had made reservations on January 1st letting them know that I needed a first floor room. Our dog cannot walk up the stairs. We arrived in February and were told that they didn't have ANY rooms on the first floor. I was very upset and had to contact Travelocity, the agency I booked through. The women that worked for Travelocity did make arrangements for us to get a first floor room. In other words, we were lied to by the hostess for Best Western. The room that she gave us was very disappointing. My husband had to tinker with the lock to get it to work, the furniture was old and damaged and there was a cigarette burn on the drapes. We did put up with it for one night but won't go there again. I was told the manager wasn't there when I know that he was. Can one really believe what they have to say?

    « Great overnight stop enroute to Florida »

    We arrived later than we expected. Front desk clerk was wonderful. It was nice to be able to park in front of room since we were traveling with our Boston Terrier. Room appeared to be recently remodeled. They thought of everything for travelers convenience. Lots of plugs to charge your electronics. Night light. Comfy bed. Quiet location. Very happy with this hotel.

    « Excellent »

    We thought we would try this hotel and so pleased we did. Excellent rooms, clean and modern. The breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs and bacon and the normal other bits and pieces, cereal, porridge, waffles egg. Staff very nice and helpful. They have a washing machine and a dryer 1.25 each which is excellent for travellers. Would thoroughly recommend it.

    We have stayed a few times in Manning on our drive from NY to FL. We stayed here when this was a Howard Johnson. They have greatly improved the place and made some nice renovations. Nice bed, bathroom,TV, fridge and microwave. Good, bright, clean breakfast room. All around good deal.

    « Many POSITIVE things about this HOTEL »

    I am glad I stayed at this Hotel BEFORE I read some of these reviews, as I did NOT find it as BAD as the reviews indicated. If you want to know about a Hotel's policies, READ the current profile of the OWNING CHAIN, (Best Western) before making a reservation. You can not arrive anywhere without knowing the policies and expect them to BEND to suit you. Do YOUR HOMEWORK. IF you want a brand new Luxury Hotel, then you need to go to a Cambria, or Crown Plaza. I found the building and grounds to be very clean and well groomed. The room was clean, and what you would expect from a small Best Western. The breakfast area was small, but Clean and the food was good. Being back off the roadway, it was quiet and easy to get a night's sleep without a lot of truck and traffic noise. Beds were very comfortable. THE ONLY negative I have is that at the END of the driveway their SURE STAY sign is VERY LOW and blocks your view to the left as you attempt to pull out onto the HIGHWAY. You have to almost pull into the roadway to SEE to the left. IT IS A HAZARDOUS situation and should be corrected immediately before someone is SERIOUSLY injured. The sign could easily be raised 8-10 feet so that you could see UNDER it, and it would NOT deter anyone from seeing the sign from the roadway.

    « "AVOID THIS PLACE!!! Hostile Management!!" »

    I paid in advance for a room and when my wife and daughter arrived, they were informed that the pet fee was now $20 instead of $15. They plead the case with the manager for a few minutes because they did not have an extra $5. After they were unsuccessful, they went back to the car to try to dig up the extra $5. When they did, the manager refused them a room! He was hostile, threatening and demeaning toward these two women, and they felt in danger. Please do yourself a favor and stay elsewhere.

    « Last minute stop...ok but wouldn't return »

    Motel is an older building that has been generally updated, but is not modern. They accept pets for a 20 dollar fee. Grounds are ok and clean. Beds are not very comfortable and there are minimal blankets for a cool evening. The price we paid was too high , should have used trip advisor. I used Best Western and it was 89. Trip advisor had a special at 63!!! Hotel wouldn't honor that after I requested a change. The place is ok but there are better places in town for the same or less money.

    « Very Average Hotel »

    After reading some of the reviews I expected this hotel to be better than 'average'. Furniture fairly worn looking. There was something that looked like straw around the base of the toilet - I didn't feel like investigating further to see what it was. Probably our biggest complaint was the thin walls. The man in the room next to us had whooping cough or something. He coughed a lot and it sounded like he was in our room. Also we heard lots of other thumps and bangs coming from other units and up on second floor. My husband said probably this is a fairly old building, built with wood framing instead of concrete block walls, which would have been better insulation and muffled the sounds. We stayed in the Baymont previously, would go back to the Baymont if in the area.

    Great place, clean and easy access to 95. Looks like a southern home, great first impression. There is a mini refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot and coffee and tea in the room, however there is a great free breakfast and you can get those items there. There is cereal, homemade waffles, bagels, English muffins, fruit and lots more. You will not go away hungry. Bed comfy. Staff very friendly, will recommend.

    « Pleasantly Surprised »

    I have stayed at several of the hotels in Manning over the past year- I was pleasantly surprised with the Sure Stay Hotel. Denny and Harry are doing a wonderful job with this place. Abbie (CSR) was extremely friendly/knowledgeable upon check-in. Once arriving to the room-it was an added bonus to see the total mattress encasement. Since I worked many years in the hotel industry- I know what I need to do upon checking in to a hotel room :) The carpet was clean, good water pressure in the shower, bedding was clean, linen was clean and the right amount of towels, no problems with the WiFi, TV had a nice picture. You guys have done an excellent job with this hotel. Keep up the great work!!!!

    « right off I-95 »

    I travel up and down I-95 many times a year. I saw the advertisement for $59.00 per night and pulled in. The hotel was clean well taken care of , fresh and from my perspective one of the nicer affordable places to stay. Although, not a brand new building you could tell the care and many noticeable upgrades and amenities that other hotel do not have. Give it a try!

    « Great value with clean remodeled rooms »

    Stay here frequently. Rooms are very clean with very comfortable, new beds. Big TV with cable and free fast WiFi. Friendly staff and decent breakfast. Only issue is walls so thin you can almost see through them. Hear every word next door. Pet friendly (fee). Good value

    « Wonderful night! »

    We were pleasantly surprised with our visit to this motel. It was clean, comfortable and our room appeared newly remodeled. The front desk personal was friendly and very helpful. After arriving in our room, we were phoned within 10 minutes by the front desk to see if everything was to our satisfaction. That's what I call great customer service! The bed was comfortable, the bathroom clean and the shower had good pressure. It was a wonderful stay and we will be back!
