You have to wonder how bad things are when The State story on the closing of this motel doesn't even list prostitution as one of the problems:

There have been 169 calls to law enforcement about incidents at the hotel in the past 90 days, city officials said. In 97 of those calls, charges were filed for crimes that included drug trafficking (meth), strong armed robbery and attempted murder, according to the release.

On Sept. 12, Cayce officers filed a report about an alleged rape of a juvenile that occurred at the hotel.

I have actually stayed in a Knight's Inn once. It was somewhere in Florida, and in my opinion was a real dump. The table seemed to have been picked up from the side of a road somewhere and everything was sticky. However, I never felt unsafe, or worried about my car. It was just a very basic, low-end experience.

There is a hearing on 24 October to determine if the business license should be permanently revoked. Whatever happens, I see a re-flagging in the future for this location.

  1. I grew up on that side of town back in the early to late 60's, but dont remember what sat there originally if anything. I'm sure it'll be torn down or re purposed for something..

  2. From the news article: "169 calls to law enforcement about incidents at the hotel in the past 90 days...charges were for crimes that included drug trafficking (meth), strong armed robbery and attempted murder."

    My (admittedly very poor) math shows that averages out to almost 2 calls to police calls each day. Let that sink in for a minute.

    *How* in the wide wide world of sports does a business with that magnitude of legal problems NOT get shut down?

  3. That area over there all the way up to Beacon Hill may have been considered out in the country or sticks, but at least we didnt have these kinds of problems you see over there now..but then again that was 51 to 59 years ago. I grew up in the old Church Hill Heights neighborhood ..I know things dont stay the same, but they really do need to either tear it down and leave an empty lot, or put something else that doesnt attract drugs and other undesirables
