The hotel rooms were fine, nothing special, but work fine for what we paid. Very comfortable beds and pillows. The staff was great and very friendly and knowledgable of the area and had some great idea's for our weekend away.

Reading all the reviews we certainly missed out. We got our room via Hotels.com and after the fact see people raving about the views. Ours was of a highway with no water in sight, so make sure you ask for a good view! The room was clean, but had a peculiar smell. It was almost like the cleaning supplies and... More

Bathrooms even smaller. Outdated, can't open balcony door. Room cleanliness was ok, but the rest of hotel was not good, especially the elevators. Pros: complimentary shuttle, free parking, river view, fairly close to downtown and beaches. Cons: Small rooms and bathrooms, staff not very polite and helpful, small "common area" to relax. Not a welcoming hotel and absolutely no attempt... More

We had a school reunion at the HI Charleston Riverview and they were very accommodating. They gave us a great group rate, organized a tasty dinner buffet for us, worked hard to help us find breakfast tables close enough to each other every morning. The bar and wait staff were superb - Derek, the bartender, took very good care of... More

This is a great location for viewing fireworks at Riverdogs Stadium. Nothing too fancy or too shabby. It can definitely use some work, but if you're traveling with kids for a no frills/no fuss vacation this will do. We even caught glimpse of a dolphin swimming while having breakfast in the restaurant.

Dear Janeen M, Thank you for your business! The panoramic views from the restaurant offer a spectacular view of the fireworks at the RiverDog’s Stadium. Normally at each home game they end the night with fireworks which if you have not seen them they are wonderful especially from the Harborview Restaurant and Bar. It’s normal to see the dolphins swimming... More

We are staying at this hotel right now, and I am completely mortified. I have not encountered one staff member who was friendly yet. Housekeeping woke us up way too early laughing and yelling at each other in the hallway. The rooms smells like mildew, and the room adjacent to ours had a plumbing issue, making the smell almost unbearable.... More

Holiday Inn Riverview is an older hotel but in pretty good shape. We were on the 14th floor in a suite, as it turns out, and it was huge! The balconies are not accessible but the view was amazing. We looked out over the Ashley River Bridges, the city, the Ravenel Bridge, etc. Staff was friendly and helpful, elevators fast.... More
