The staff was very friendly and attentive to our questions. The shuttle to the downtown area was great and much appreciated. It is definitely difficult to exit the hotel parking lot onto 17 so we appreciated letting someone else do it! The location was by far the best feature of this hotel. There was a lot to do close by... More

We stayed here for several nights just to get away and see Charleston. The hotel is located in between two bridges, one going toward downtown, Charleston, and the other heading away, BUT in the direction of Folly Beach. We were 10 miles to the beach and 2 miles to downtown. We could see downtown Charleston from the view from the... More

Where to start.. When checking in, it was my husband and I. The two of us, we arrived together,I was leaning on him while we were at the counter, nothing that would indicate we hated each other. The gentleman checking us was the type of southern hospitality you expect. He hands us the key to or room, directs us to... More

We stayed here for the location. Room was clean and the beds were comfortable but the bathroom did not have a fan, but that was no big deal since it just my son and I. The breakfast buffet is a little high so we only did that once. Better have a fast car to get off and on Hwy. 17(exciting).

The room was very close to beach and downtown. View from pool was great. Only issue was that they booked someone else into our room while we were staying so when we returned from dinner another persons suitcases were in our room. Quickly resolved.

We immediately noticed that the bed sheets had hair in them and discovered even more when the sheets were fully taken off. The front desk manager came right up, profusely apologized, and changed them out. While there, she did a great job telling us about some dinner options. She was nice. The pool looks nice and seems to have a... More

Dear Mark R, Thanks for staying with us! Our extensive breakfast buffet is all you eat which includes: hot eggs, tasty bacon, sausage, shredded hash browns, Southern grits, sand dollar pancakes, an array of cereals and much, much more. It also includes bottomless hot coffee or juices. As always kids eat free with accompanying adult guardian. More

This makes the second time we have stayed here and for a good reason! It's so close to the port, it's clean, has wonderful views, and the staff is super friendly! They always make sure to meet our requests with having a port side facing room. I love waking up in the morning and looking out and seeing our ship!... More

My husband used to live out here & drove by this hotel a lot, always wanted to stay there. So we did! Our son loved the idea of the round hotel! Nice staff. Decent rooms. Comfortable beds. Rooms are a little small due to the round shape & lack of angles but ok. We had dinner in rooftop restaurant which... More

It's probably a 2 or 3 star hotel, but the staff was exceptional. Everything was clean etc... things are just dated and a little dingy. It's reasonably located, but if you need to be in the downtown area (walking distance), look elsewhere. The shuttle runs every two hours and carries 10 passengers, we never were on schedule and took our... More
