This hotel had great reviews so we decided to try it out on a recent trip to Charleston. The friendly front desk staff, the very clean rooms, comfortable beds and decent breakfast made this an excellent stay. I would definitely go back.

We liked our stay here. Had a quiet room on the 3rd floor and it was spacious. It was a little tricky finding the entrance but once we got it down it was no problem. Just took Highway 17 into the downtown area to explore Charleston. We didn't want to pay the downtown prices and this was perfect for us.... More

Hotel rates in historic Charleston were $279+++ for Columbus Day weekend. This hotel was about $100 cheaper per night. The cab ride into the city was about $15 and 10 minutes. I literally saved hundreds of dollars during my long weekend in Charleston by staying here. The room works. It's basic... it's not new.... it's not super fancy. But it... More

We really enjoyed this hotel during our stay in Charleston, SC. It was priced very reasonable compared to other hotels nearby. The location is a little ways away from downtown historic Charleston but we had no issues getting around. Its about a $5-$7 Uber/Lyft trip to the city center. The rooms were very clean although a little small. We would... More

Ok its out of town but at least its quiet. Its modern, everything worked well and the lady on the desk was great she gave us all the info we needed. A car is needed to get downtown from here its sort of a pitstop on the highway.

The hotel is very updated. Clean rooms and polite staff . Breakfast was exceptional with bacon, eggs, gravy , and much more ! We went on Labor day weekend . The location is about 10 miles from the city of Charleston . Convenient to restaurants and shopping. I read the reviews of this hotel before booking and was not disappointed.
