We stayed here during April 2014. I booked the hotel thinking it was a great price within 15 minutes of downtown Charleston. That's the only plus about this hotel. There's no shampoo provided in the hotel (to keep their rooms reasonably priced as we were told) and our room had a dirty shelf and apparently a dirty towel left in... More

Stayed 3 days here. Didn't have too many expectations but didn't intend to spend too much time in the room anyhow.Just expected it to be clean and reasonable. This hotel was beyond my expectations. Had a nice welcome by a very nice and helpful staff. My room was a standard Motel 6 room, very clean, quiet, free wifi.Had everything I... More

We were staying in Charleston for a large event. Needless to say there were few hotels available in Charleston and all of them were being billed at a premium. I would never pay as much as I did typically for a Motel 6. However, relatively speaking to other properties it was the cheapest. I was greatly surprised. The front desk... More

This hotel was wonderful i stayed a week with my 2 dogs the only issue we had was the power went off twice but they fixed it right away and apologized a million times and even put us in another room for the night while the power was out. The house keepers came by everyday to see if we needed... More

Some family members of mine stayed in this motel and advised that it was a total CRAP HOLE!! They advised that there was white paint chips coming off all over the bathroom sink. It was very dirty and sketchy. They paid $55.00 a night for this room. They advised that they were scared to go outside as there were a... More

Full of roaches. The WIFI does not work. The people in the lobby hang up the phone to guests if they try to complain about any problem with the room. The police arrived during our stay to arrest people here. After I complained to the Motel 6 guest relations they sent a letter to the general manager Darlene Lawrence probably... More

It's only $43.99 a night plus tax which comes out to around $52. They charge a few dollars extra for 24 hour access to the wireless internet connection. I was here two nights, and the traffic noise of I-526/Highway 17 directly across from the motel didn't even bother me half as much as the constant noise the other people staying... More

Basic is quite acceptable but unclean is not acceptable. Couldn't stand barefoot on carpet. Under beds not been hoovered for some time. Dirty fridge surround, beds not properly made and no tea and coffee making facilities. Reception staff very friendly and shower nice and powerful but the musty smell in room made for uneasy sleeping. Stayed last fortnight in superb... More

This seemed like a nice motel and location and price were good. However, this was the smallest room I have ever seen for a double. For both beds, you could only get out on 1 side! We had to ask for towels and wash cloths, soap, and glasses every day, Not sure they did anything except make the bed. Don't... More

Nothing fancy, just the basic bed and loo... If you don't need much, just a cheap place to crash for the night while on the road, this is an OK place to do so. A bit of road noise from the highway, but overall clean and safe.
