I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. We got this hotel through hotwire.com, so we didn't have to pay an arm and a leg for our room. The location is quite nice, since it's not so far from the historic downtown area. Also, the CARTA DASH trolley system in Charleston has a stop right in front of the hotel,... More

This hotel is located across the street from the VA Hospital and next door is a fast food restaurant, and the only within walking distance. Has ample free parking, outside and around the hotel is clean and free of obstructions. I believe the hotel to be safe. With so many hotels in Charleston, I have to say this is an... More

Hotel is undergoing renovations and there were some inconveniences. The room was clean and the staff were very busy but polite and helpful. Breakfast was good and the area was very clean. The location of the hotel is very convenient as the free trolley stop was right by the hotel. Downtown and the cruise ship terminal are close by...you cannot... More

I booked this hotel last minute through priceline.com at a very reasonable price. The staff was friendly and accommodating. However, the hotel has been "renovated" but you can definitely still see the very old hotel skeleton. The elevators are horrific, the bathroom doors were old, the shower had no pressure, the pool was half empty and dirty (I understand it's... More

Thank you for choosing us when you booked on Priceline.com. I do want to apologize that the outdoor pool was not open when you stayed with us in February. We do drain the pool during our off season. It will open back up in May. I know it can be hard to sleep when there are noises around you. I... More

My granddaughter and I stayed there after a 15 hour drive from upstate NY. THe lady who checked us in was okay but not very personable. The parking was not so good. It was a blessing someone left and we were able to park there. However the room was great and the beds so comfortable we had a great night's... More

Our hotel stay would have been ok if the staff wasn't so rude! We originally booked 2 queen beds and they ended up giving us 2 double beds, which are actually full size. At check in, no one cared to tell us that they sold out of all of the queen beds, so they decided to move us. After taking... More

We will be staying at this hotel probably everytime we go to Charleston. I really liked that it was on the outskirts of Charleston and it is close to the interstate to go to John's Island. The free public transit also has a stop right in front of the hotel. If you want to go to downtown at night even... More

The hotel was good as a whole. Kind front desk staff and clean rooms. The breakfast consisted of muffins, toast, waffles, cereal, yogurt, fruit, coffee/tea, and eggs. Served 6-9am. Get there early to find a seat. Parking was easy in the parking lot, but we didn't get there late ever. The DASH bus is free and nearby, but it is... More
