This hotel isn't much to look at from the outside. But once we got to our room. (Which was a great deal to begin with), I was SO happy we had chosen this hotel and wished that we could have stayed longer. Plenty of parking at this hotel, fantastic breakfast buffet, with longer service hours than other hotels I've stayed... More

This number one perk of this hotel is it's proximity to downtown. We're not talking luxury of a five star resort but it's a nice, clean place to stay. The rooms are suite style complete with living room, swivel tvs, and a complete kitchen. There is also a free breakfast bar! The only reason I took off a star is... More

I selected this hotel because although it was built in 2000, it had been renovated in 2014. However, what they didn't tell you was that it wasn't a complete renovation. Air handling system was loud (certainly not part of the renovation); didn't change out cabinets in the kitchen or bathroom, refrigerator and dishwasher were still the original. A disappointment!

Great value!!! We were welcomed very late at night with smiles and questions of how we could be helped. Our double suite was roomy, super clean, comfortable and had lots of coffee, tea, condiments and popcorn! Our free breakfast and evening buffet meals with offered spirits were great! Washer/ dryer area was clean with large machines for a reasonable charge.... More

Nothing overly special about the hotel. Stayed here with family of four and it met our needs. The breakfast area could do with a re-organization for traffic flow. the shuttle to historic downtown is very convenient if you want to have a few, or just not pay for parking. Drop off location is near most things, down side is it... More

My wife and I traveled down to Charleston on business. We brought our dog Ringo with us. What a great place and the service was top notch! For a pet friendly hotel, it was the cleanest place we ever stayed! Excellent location on the marina, with California Dreaming within walking distance.

Since the Residents Inn opened I have stayed here 4 to 5 times a year. The staff is outstanding from front desk to grounds. They treat you like Kings and Queens. Pet friendly. It is like having the best family in the world taking care of you. Close to downtown yet away from the noise. Great breakfast.

We stayed here with another couple for two nights. The motel was clean and nice. The breakfast area was being remodeled so they had set up the breakfast in a smaller room across the hallway. However the staff made sure items were continuously well stocked and the variety was good. We had a two bedroom, two bathroom suite with a... More

We stayed for 6 nights within this last week. Overall the hotel is pretty nice but was a little disappointed at the upkeep.

Fast check-in. Staff was truly accommodating. Breakfast was fabulous and there was a variety with the hot choices each day, We had eggs, sausage,hash browns, potatoes and grits. Then every day was a well stocked waffle station, bakery muffins, bagels, bread, cereal, fresh fruits, melons, and yogurt. Shuttle service was convenient. There is a restaurant book by the door we...
