This was my first trip to charleston, and I could be almost anywhere I wanted to sight see in about ten to fifteen minutes.,every staff member I had... More

Great location right outside of historic area, clean, quiet and a really good breakfast included. Price was less than half of historic area hotels. Would definitely stay again! The clerk at the front desk was extremely helpful with directions to town even though she was very busy with phone calls.

Hotel staff were very good at this hotel. Our room was average but the view from our window was awesome. Nice big flowering trees to look at every morning. Breakfast was about what you normally get for continental style breakfast. Bed was comfortable and room was kept adequately cleaned. Room could use a few updates but all in all we... More

This hotel is a very good place to stay. I have stayed here in the past and I'm sure I'll do it again in the future. The rooms are very clean and the beds are comfortable. It would be nice if tv guides were in the rooms. The pancake machine is a nice addition to the breakfast. The outside breakfast... More

The hotel staff were very nice and helpful, and the hotel is at a great location. The room was nice, and it had everything we needed. Breakfast was good. Our only problem was that the hairdryer wasn't working properly, and when we turned on the air, the room got really humid. Other than that, everything was great!

Dear joyworld111, It was a pleasure to serve you. I do apologize for the issues you encountered during your stay. I did review these issues with my maintenance team to ensure all hairdryers and air conditioning units are working properly. I am delighted that you enjoyed all staff interaction. Thanks again for staying with us. More

Very outdated and overpriced motel. The nice things about the hotel are the location (close to downtown Charleston), the staff (very helpful and extremely nice) and the pool. Unfortunately, the room was very old and worn and there was a drainage problem with the bathtub. I will stay at another hotel the next time.

Exceptional hotel! I'm not the type that requires 5 star lodging, so I booked one of the cheaper hotels in the area. The room smelt fresh (despite being a smoking room), and every inch was clean. Upon inspection, the sheets were laundered and in pristine condition. Comfortable, pillow-top mattress! Although the rooms surrounding us were booked, I never heard our... More

I would recommend this hotel when visiting Charleston, especially if you have your own transportation. It is cheaper than staying in downtown Charleston and not that far away. It was a pretty standard room, but clean. The bathrooms were small. The breakfast was a standard hotel breakfast, When we arrived we were informed that they had not booked us in... More

We stayed here for a night on a last minute trip to Charleston. The hotel staff were all helpful, our room was comfortable and clean. They have a nice pool but we did not use it. The free breakfast was your typical free hotel breakfast menu but it was fine for us. I will say that the prices seem a... More
