We arrived before check-in; however, Rachel let us store our bags until we returned to check-in. Rachel was friendly, courteous, and all-around a good person during our visit. This hotel is clean and rooms are nice. The (free) trolley service to the downtown historic district runs behind the hotel and is convenient. This is a plus because taxi rates into... More

The property was in a great location very close to the historic district. It is a spotless pet friendly property. The staff was very helpful. Mike was very polite. There was a great breakfast with many choices. The pool area was nice and there was plenty of parking

The hotel was older, but nice. It had been updated some. It was in a good location and offered a free breakfast. However, the coffee was out and there were no cups at 6:30 when breakfast began. It took a few minutes to get these things out. The front desk clerks could have been a little more knowledgeable about places... More

A HUGE Thank You for the honesty of Alicia in returning money I had accidently left in our room upon departure. It's not often you find individuals in this situation that would have been as honest.

This is a nice hotel on the outskirts of town - it's about a mile to the top of King Street and a couple of miles to the oldest part of town at the tip of the peninsular. Fortunately it's easy walking (all flat) and it felt quite safe at night. There's free parking, the breakfast was above average and... More

We booked this hotel through our TA before we left on a cruise out of Charleston. We really weren't expecting anything special We ended up having numerous fun surprises! We got in early to the hotel- about 12:30. We had requested early check in- NO PROBLEM!!! Nice room. The decor of the Hotel is different- but in a fun 1970's... More

This place is really wonderful. We brought our dog and he was greeted with some dog biscuits, aa welcome letter and complementary waste bags for his walks. Beds are very comfortable (I rarely say that) and so are the pillows. The beds even have functional throws at the foot and not those useless decorative remnants. We also got to watch... More
