Great Customer Service. Clean, safe, fairly new hotel. Rooms are small and beds are not queen size as advertised (they are twin). Short drive to Charleston (about 15 min). It has a Starbucks right in front of the hotel. Over all, good hotel for a one or two day stay.

We stayed on a free night with our Marriott points and weren't disappointed. Everything was neat and clean and the staff was accommodating...decent location a little farther from downtown than we anticipated but very convenient to a lot of familiar places for coffee and breakfast!

I frequent this hotel for overnight business trips. There's plenty of food all around this place. Excellent Barbecue, especially the Smoked Ribs, at Willie Jewells across the street! Service and staff are top notch, and their awards show it. It's clean and not very old. Very comfortable beds. I usually stay here 2-3 times a month.

When other Charleston hotels are $275-500+ per night, this place is a true bargain! Charleston is only 20 minutes away, so we saved a bundle by staying near the university. Pros: economical, free parking and internet, close to fast food restaurants and CVS, yummy and hot breakfast, hot tub and pool, small fitness center, comfy beds and pillows, friendly staff,... More

We booked here since the Wyndham we normally choose was unavailable. With family at the base nearby this is a nice "in-between" location to visit them and be fairly close to Charleston. Staff was very friendly and hotel was very clean. We received bottled water and Oreo cookies when we checked in. They offer a manager's reception with free beer/wine... More

This location is quite a drive from charleston or it seemed that way. It is located in a college town and nice area however this should not be advertised as charleston as it is not close. Beware, there are no sit down fine dinning restaurants except fast food and most of them close at 9pm. Apart form the fast food... More
