1. The hotel falsely represents its location as being walking distance to the historic district. 2. The hospitality at the front desk left much to be desired--the employees at the front desk were unaccommodating and only offered to make things better AFTER we cancelled the rest of our stay and moved to another hotel. 3.Our rug had a huge stain...

Hotel was good, not great. Same for the breakfast, but they needed more seating as it was very busy with limited tables. The ladies working both the morning and afternoon shifts at the front desk were very nice and helpful, so big kudos to them. One complaint (and this is not the only hotel where I have had this happen):... More

You would expect more from a Holiday Inn Express. Things like friendly employees, bananas that weren't 80% black, an elevator that could have been cleaned more than once a year. The only nice thing about the place is that is was convenient to the highways and some restaurants.

We stayed here in May for seven nights. The hotel suited us very well. A little way from Charleston and therefore more reasonable than a city centre hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the Staff were very friendly and we enjoyed sitting by the pool after a busy day sightseeing. It was our first visit to Charleston and we... More

This is a really nice hotel and super close to downtown Charleston and you can't beat the price. The rooms were super clean and comfy and the breakfast is great and a perfect way to start your day. I would highly recommend this location.

Exceptionally clean and quiet. Staff was highly friendly and professional. First time to Charleston and they answered every question we had. Breakfast was plentiful. Outdoor pool in back of hotel very quite and secluded. Would recommend this as lowest place outside of downtown to lay your head.
