Stayed one night. Staff friendly and accodating. Check in quick and easy. No frills motel...bring your own shampoo! Room clean and quiet. Beds comfortable with clean sheets. Air conditioning worked well. Good value for pricy Charleston in the summer. Easy access to town. Served its purpose. No complaints! Thanks motel 6...old motel...showing its age but good if money is tight.... More

If you are in Charleston, SC and looking for a cheap place to stay with a nice and friendly staff, Motel 6 on Hwy 17 is the place. The room I had the weekend of July 4, 2014 was clean and smelled very good and the beds had new mattresses on them and clean carpet. They can update the TVs.... More

My name is Victoria bramlett. I stayed July 18 th and 19 th. I paid 149.00 for two nights. The steps was made of wood that was thick as hell. Which made the stairs very scary and unlevel. I don't know how that even passed state codes. The curtains had holes in them. The bed was very very wore out.... More

The carpet was damp. Room was very small. The mattress was very cheap and smashed down to being almost flat. My shoulders and back hurt the next day. Cops constantly patrol the lot leaving me to think there is prostitution or drug dealing. Goons hang out on the stairwell all day. Parking is limited. In general I like Motel 6.... More

The room was terrible. We made a reservation by phone while driving to Charleston from our previous vacation stop. The pool in front of the motel was only 3 ft deep and very small. The room smelled so overwhelmingly of cigarette smoke that my toddler even said it was stinky. It was also very small and cramped. The bed spreads... More

Nice clean rooms, friendly front desk. Great location, great price, especially for Charleston where hotel rooms are expensive. Close to restaurants and Folly Rd. About 5 minutes from historic downtown.
