I loved the location of this SpringHill Suites at first sight. It is just a mile off I-77 but is located in a quiet area of small stores and restaurants. It is easy to get in and out of and has been recently renovated. The lobby is very welcoming with a very large breakfast area with a bar where evening drinks can be purchased. A small but well-stocked store is located next to the front desk.
The pool area is very nice. The pool is small and is only 4 feet at the deepest but it is clean. We particularly enjoyed the hot tub which was just the right temperature. One of the benefits of arriving around 3 p.m. is that we were the only ones in the pool area. A small gym is located near the pool area and also a business center.
We reserved a king suite. It is a nice sized room. Actually, it is two rooms. The living room area has a large sofa which is also a sofa bed. There is also a desk where you can work using their free WiFi. On the opposite side of the room are a bar with a Keurig coffee pot, a fridge, sink and a microwave. My only complaint was that there were only two K-cups one regular and one decaf. I asked the desk staff for another one of each so that we could both have a cup of coffee tonight and tomorrow.
The bedroom has the king sized bed and not much else other than night stands and the closet. The bed was very comfortable but even though there were plenty of pillows I was very disappointed that none of them was feather or down. At the price I paid to stay here I expected at least one or two to be down or feather.
The bathroom has the split design with the sink in the hallway outside of the actual bathroom. Nothing special about that just the usual tub shower combo. Good pressure in the shower and it was quite a spacious room.
The TV is located on a dresser which is between the bedroom and the living room and it can swivel so that it can be watched in either room.
Breakfast is included in the rate here. It is substantial. The usual cooked scrambled eggs and sausage with the addition of grits. Ham and two types of cheese were offered as well as yogurt, boiled eggs, fresh strawberries, apples, and bananas. They also had oatmeal with all the fixings and cold cereal. Two types of toast, English muffins, croissant, two types of bagels, poppy cake and another type of coffeecake. Three flavors of juice and coffee round out the offerings.
Several dining options are available within walking distance. We opted for Jeffrey’s and it was excellent.
If you are passing through this area I highly recommend Spring Hill Suites as a stop, it is quiet, clean, comfortable and convenient. What more could you ask?
