I booked a room at this location 6 months in advance. In that time frame, the units were sold to a new management company. I saw some of these negative reviews and was concerned that the room I thought I was getting wasn't going to live up to my expectations, as we were using the room for a bachelorette party.... More

Great location but not worth the money. The place is missing the little things, towel hooks, curtains, bathroom trash cans, closet rods... The insulation was so thin you could hear everyone in the hallway, the morning trash trucks, and all the nightly bar traffic. Save your money and don't book here.

Great location and easy to find on King street wich is the shopping street. The place was clean and tidy also, fully furnished. Really enjoyed our stay. So many good restaurants around and walking distance to the city market.

Up stair that were very narrow to unload luggage. Parking is over a block away and expensive as it is not included in the price and you are not able to leave... More

I really thought I was getting the best of the best--Nichole was GREAT !! However --we did not get the picture of what we saw on the web sight. The bath rooms had roaches and I thought 3 beds meant 3 beds --not 2 beds and a fold out couch. How ever the location was GREAT !!!!! For the price... More

We booked this unit 4 months in advance. Within days of booking our unit the entire place was sold out. It is highly recommended that you plan way in advance. This was, by far, the most affordable option in the city. It was worth every penny as well. It was located in the perfect location- smack dab in the middle... More

What a disappointment! Have stayed here on at least 2 occasions a couple of years ago and loved it. The location is wonderful and such a unique property on the penisula. There are several lightbulbs out, the master toilet wouldn't flush (I fixed that myself), there were dirty dishes in the dishwasher AND in the cabinet, marks all over the... More

My friends and I rented a condo unit called the Society House for the weekend. It is located directly on the main shopping strip in downtown Charleston. The location is convenient but that is the only good thing that I can say about the place. The walls were beat up, there was a thick layer of dust on all the... More

The location is great, everything else about this place is awful. We booked two nights in apartment 204 to.

I’m sorry to read that the property did not meet your expectations. Regarding the cleanliness of your unit, these types of comments are not normal for us. Typically we really take our time to deep clean the floors and I’m sorry that for some reason we did not follow through with our expectations for our cleaning staff. I’m very sorry... More
