Pros: Not much
Location: There was nothing within walking distance and after driving for ten or more hours, we did not feel like getting back in our vehicle to go somewhere.
The Hotel Clerk was less than pleasant. When we asked whether or not they give a Military Discount the clerk told us 'You have to get that through the booking company'. The Continental Breakfast consisted of Waffles, Cereal, and some Baked Goods. No Fruit, Eggs, Meat, Yogurt. There was Coffee, Orange Juice and Apple Juice. The Milk for Cereal was in a pitcher on the counter and no indication as to how long it had been sitting out. We will not stay there again.

Off the beaten path

Pros: It was comfortable.
Cons: Routine maintenance.
Location: Movie theater, plenty of places to eat(McDonalds is right across the street) and plenty of shopping centers.
Check in was ok. Employees were ok. The room had a smell to it that I couldn't place. The iron was broken/cracked around the part that held the water. Water pressure was minimal. Not near enough parking.

Nice hotel, close to everything.

Pros: Clean and reasonable, Convenient.
Cons: The "smoky" smell.
Location: Very convenient to Interstate, shopping, food, and Winthrop University. Also, close to Charlotte, NC.
Staff was very friendly and courteous. It is an older hotel but very clean. We had a non-smoking room, however, the odor of cigarette smoke especially in the bathroom, was at times overwhelming. We assumed because it's an older hotel, the smell probably came from the vents of another room. Solution would be to make whole hotel non- smoking or upgrade the ventilation system. Would stay again, when visiting family, but would request a first floor non-smoking room.

Nice Stay close to interstate.

Pros: Proximity to interstate and price.
Cons: Television that wasn't analog. So much snow on screen we couldn't even watch it.
Nice, clean basic room. Extra towels and very friendly service from staff. Beds and pillows were comfortable.

Economical hotel in Rock Hill

Pros: See above
Cons: See above
Location: Location is good--lots of restaurants and stores nearby and close to I-77.
The Howard Johnson hotel is very conveniently located off of I-77, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The room was spacious and clean, and the price was right. There was a problem with the AC unit in my room, which made it less comfortable than the last time I stayed here. Breakfast is provided, and it is okay but pretty minimal. Some more fresh fruit and yogurt would make it better.

Spend a little more and go someplace else

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
I guess we didn't get a renovated room. Pictures speak for themselves. Neighborhood is a little sketchy.
