I've read some unreasonable reviews, and am frankly amazed. I have stayed at this no-frills motel several times over the past 30 years, and keep coming back. The present owners work hard to provide a pleasant experience for guests; improvements have been made that serve to enhance the quality of ones' stay. The fish cleaning room is the outstanding feature... More

If you are looking for a fancy room with an ocean view, keep looking. We love this place! Yes, the rooms are in need of update. Yes, there is a smell of low tide in the air (you are minutes from it). Yes, it looks like it was in it's prime in the 1960's. BUT.. the owner/managers are great people... More

We stayed here as part of a 101 HWY journey and was grateful for a motel in this location. However, the dream stopped there. The rooms are in huge need of updates. The cleanliness was not there. Our TV did not work and our bathtub did not drain to the point where it filled up during a brief shower, and... More

This motel fits right into the harbor atmosphere and general fishing village that is Charleston. It is an older building that the owners work to keep up. The on site fish house is perfect for guests with boats who can clean their catches, whether it be salmon, tuna or crab. Security is good, the owners smile and are very accommodating.... More

Great place! The owners were very friendly. The room was spartan but clean and the bed was one of the comfortable I have ever slept in. Previous reviewers whine about the lack of amenities as though this was a four-star palace. You get what you pay for people! Seems like everyone wants something for nothing. Anyways, this place delivers charm,... More

My sister and I took a trip this weekend to Charleston. I made all the rooming arrangements on line prior to our arrival. After I booked our reservation I read some really bad reviews, needless to say I was a little anxious about staying here (I hadn't told my sister about any of the reviews). We arrived very late but... More

Between this motel, the great food and the spectacular scenery 4 miles away, our two days in Charleston will be a forever memory. I was surprised to see bad reviews after our experience here. We looked at several rooms since there was more than one available. They all looked equally nice. We chose a downstairs king since we are seniors... More

We stayed at the Captain John's Motel in Charleston and found it to be excellent value for money. We made and paid for our room online, that made the check-in process very easy and quick. The room was clean and all the service people were nice. Room was very acceptable for the price. Would recommend and would stay again. Compare... More

Ga! Depressing. Like being caught in a 1970's cheap hotel that hasn’t changed, but just gotten shabbier as the decades have gone by. The room was NOT at an acceptable rate of cleanliness, the decor was awful and chintzy. The only good thing about it would be the location. For those who are crabbing/clamming, it’s just a walk across the... More
