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

I am a member of Marriott, and found this hotel in Charleston, SC to stay overnight. It was about 20 - 25 mins from I-95, located in as decent town, with a lot of restaurants near by. I booked my room online and asked for an upstairs room, but changed my mind, when check-in, and asked for a downstairs instead,... More

The staff at this Fairfield went above and beyond all of our expectations. This was the ABSOLUTE friendliest Fairfield Inn we have ever stayed at, especially Cora! She made sure everything was perfect for breakfast every morning, and was very personable. The front desk was exceptional as well. Our room was clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed the evening... More

This hotel is located right off the highway, close to the University, a 25 minute drive to downtown Charleston, 20 minutes to the H.L. Hunley Museum, 10 minutes to the airport. The road that the hotel is on is a gauntlet of retail and restaurants. If you have a nose to explore away from the nearby development, this Fairfield Inn... More

This hotel is one of maybe 12 in a block area. Glad we chose the Fairfield. Plenty of food spots. All new furnishings, new carpet. Very accomodating and efficient staff. I like the fitness room due to the individual tv at each treadmill with free earbuds provided. Continental breakfast similar to other hotels.N. Charleston is not a favorite area of... More

We spent 2 nights and this was the least expensive nice hotel in the area. There was a lot going on that weekend. Typical Fairfield, clean, quiet, room not huge but sufficient. The breakfast was excellent and staff very friendly. The fridge in our room wasn't really cold though. I called the front desk and she said all the fridges... More
