4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Yes to the very comfortable beds, clean room on arrival, a decent and varied complimentary breakfast and a good location. Only negative - I stayed there 3 nights and the housekeeping was a bit like an extended stay hotel (i.e., they did the basics, but it didn't look like as nice as if you'd just checked in).

A nice clean hotel located on Savannah Highway, about 20 minutes away from the Downtown area. Lots of restaurants and shopping close by. Hotel was very clean and served a delightful hot buffet breakfast. Staff were very friendly. Room windows had beautiful wooded shutters to keep the sun out. Hotel has an outdoor pool and free wifi

Good price for location in Charleston but have stayed at much nicer hotels around the area. Typically hotel rooms in and around the historic district are easily over $150+ per night. We booked our room at the Holiday Inn for under $100.

We stayed over Thanksgiving and it was very busy. Check in went smoothly and the 4 of us went to our room and everything was as shown as on the website.

I stayed at this location for several nights over the Thanksgiving holiday and had a pleasant stay. While the rooms are standard size. What really made our stay enjoyable was the attention to the needs of its patrons by the staff. One morning the regular cook didn't make it to work, but the manager still managed to get breakfast served... More

My stay was okay except for the fact that the bath needed some attention. The shower curtain, especially, needed to be laundered to take care of the mold issue. The location was very close to where I had business the next day. The sleep quality was good but it would be nice to have closer attention to details.

This was our first trip to Charleston and this hotel. The person who checked us in was Ben who happened to be the housekeeping manager doubling up on the front desk. What a break for us. We asked Ben what to see, where the locals eat, and how best to get around. Three things important to any visitor new to... More

Downtown Charleston is crowded and expensive. This hotel is a great value in a pleasant area and you can drive right downtown in 15 minutes. We found the staff to be friendly, the room clean and the breakfast just right.
