We moved across the street to the Fairfield after spending one night at the HI Express N Charleston. Everything was very good, except for the Manager's Reception. All the hotels in that area are near a Christian University and none of the restaurants serve alcoholic beverages, also no Sports Bars/Bars near. They all have a Manager's Reception during the week,... More

Great location with eateries steps away. The hotel is centrally located with a dining room that overlooks pool. If you are traveling with Kids, this location is just steps from Brewsters Ice Cream, Cookout, and the University.

With many hotels for people to choose from, a hotel better be able to stand above. The Fairfield Inn brings just what it needs to give you a great, comfortable stay. The entire hotel has been updated and our room showed it. Clean, roomy, and great AC. So when you cant spent $400 per night in downtown Charleston, drive 15... More

Loved the ample breakfast and the convenient location the beds were excellent as were the furnishings. The air conditioning in our room was not only very comfortable but extremely quiet, making our night sleep very sound. Front desk personnel were very informative

We arrived early and the staff was very helpful and accommodated us with an early check in. The room was a decent size, clean, and quiet. We slept well. The kitchen staff was very nice. The bathtub didn't drain well. But overall we were very pleased. Located within walking distance of several places to eat. We will stay again!

As with most Fairfield Inns, it was very nice experience. The staff is friendly and accomodating. I had requested a first floor room and they went ahead and honored my request. Rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast is the same as with any other Fairfield Inn which is not bad. The location was ok since it was easy to... More

The rooms in this hotel are all small suites meaning they have a separate living room which contains a desk, couch, and television. The rooms are comfortable and clean if not large. The furnishings and bathroom are in very good condition and the staff is friendly and helpful. There is a typical “do it yourself” breakfast included in with the... More

Saved money being outside of Charleston and easy access to downtown. Lots of restaurants in area. We were constantly trying to get the sheets to stay on the bed and beds were lumpy! Right on highway with restaurant in front, so lots of noise! Drag racing at 2 AM!

The hotel was imaculate, breakfast was really good. Had a waffle maker in the shape of South Carolina, how neat. All the staff were just so nice and very helpful. Nice safe quiet area, close to a couple of restuarants that was in adjacent parking lots so if you wanted to walk you could. We were going into historic Charleston... More
