The location was a little out of town however the staff were very friendly and helpful and informed us of the free trolly car that took you into town. The hotel was clean, nice, and to a high standard. The pool was lovely, as was the fitness suite which was a great asset. The complimentary breakfast was regularly replenished and... More

Clean and comfortable room, friendly and helpful staff, delicious breakfast, close drive to the city. Highly recommend! Will stay here again! Always thought Holiday Inns were more expensive than most, but I was wrong. Glad I discovered Holiday Inn!

My wife and I arrived on Aug 15. When we checked in our first room had a mold smell to it (Room 327). I immediately became worried because I did read a review that mentioned that. Not to worry they changed our room without a problem. This room had a much better air quality. We were happy. The rooms are... More

We have stayed at a variety of hotels this summer, using Trip Advisor reviews to help with our choices, but never knowing for sure what the accommodations would be like. When I booked the Holiday Inn Express, I knew what to expect...the hotel would be clean, well-maintained and the comfort details would be there. I like that consistency from property... More

Pillows were awful - worn and no fill.. even whrn I asked for another, I got a worn out pillow. Desk clerks were friendly and helpful.. There were not enough electrical outlets to use for charging phones.

My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Charleston and loved it. We usually like to stay in places that offers a good breakfast, good location and a clean room, and this hotel had that all. We arrived before check-in and they were able to accommodate us and sent us to our room. Rooms are regular sized,... More
