FL to CT decent inexpensive lodging

Need to know decent safe inexpensive places to stay in a drive from Orlando to CT

There is an older but clean Comfort Inn at Waltersboro, SC. At the airport exit in Savannah, there are several Hilton group hotels - Hampton Inn, Embassy Suites, and Doubletree, I think. I would avoid Dillon, SC. We stayed there many years ago and were honestly a little nervous about leaving the interstate area to find a meal.
