I stayed at the Best Western Sweetgrass Inn in 2011 and thought it was a great location at a very good price. My most recent stay, April 2015, showed me how much things can change in a short period of time. The room we were given at check-in was unacceptable - it was damp and smelled of bleach to the...

Very expensive for quality..one of the older Best Westerns, but convenient to Charleston. Indifferent cleaning staff. Check your bill very carefully at check out as we had long distance phone charges added to ours.

The 2nd day we were there we came back to our room after a day full of activities to find our door had been left wide open by housekeeping. I reported it to the desk person, who did not pass the information on to anyone. later that night someone tried getting in our room, almost as if housekeeping left it... More

The hotel is very nice, conveniently located. Landscaping and grounds, very good. Staff friendly and helpful. I plan on rebooking in next two weeks, again. Wish there had been an elevator, maybe a few extra pillows in the room. A good and comfortable experience.

We had a very pleasant stay. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The breakfast was good. It was easy to drive to town. There were places to eat close to the hotel. We will stay again when we visit Charleston.

I made a reservation for two rooms a week ahead of my visit. Once I arrived their system showed that only one room was reserved. I showed them my reservation and they found another room for me (on the other end of the complex). So far so good. The rooms were ok, nothing special but also not disgusting. The final... More

Check in was fast but when we got to the room it wasn't ready. Personnel sent us to #249 upstairs without an elevator but a staff man helped with our luggage. The room was in good order but it smelled like a smoking room. Old and musty. Pillows did not smell fresh. Cigarette filters scattered on the property.The outer deck... More

Only 4 miles from downtown with all its restaurants, shops and venues. Right off Savannah Highway, only about 40 minutes from 95 (although don't plan on heading towards 95 after 2pm, the traffic is insane). My room had WiFi, a fridge, a microwave, etc - free, all the amenities for which the $300+ hotels will nickel and dime you to... More
