This is my third stay at this motel. My wife and I had a very pleasing experience here. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and the bed was excellent! The carpet in the hallways could use a little shampooing. The breakfast was very good. I would stay here again!

I'm hoping this was just a comedy of errors instead of just a bad location. First, after making the reservation directly with the hotel and getting an email confirmation, upon my arrival I found my reservation had been inexplicably cancelled, which no one could explain. I had to take a smoking room (I don't smoke) or go looking for substitute... More

I was staying for business with my wife. We had to leave because every day clothes of my wife went missing. And I often saw the staff outside looking for drugs from the hotel next door. Management were unhelpful and disrespectful.

We had a lot of family come down from New York and this hotel accommodated us perfectly. I have never been to such a friendly hotel in all our travel, and we travel at least 4 times a year. Very friendly staff and appeared to be very genuine. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Outdoor pool very clean. We will... More

Stayed for one night on points during a rainy Easter weekend, and loved pretty much everything about my stay. Tawney at the front desk was a cutie, and gave me not only an update for being Platinum, but also a late checkout (2pm). The later check out was huge for me, as it allowed me to run my errands the...

Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights near the end of March. The hotel itself was fairly average for the cost. The location is convenient to I-26, and to Summerville, but feels a little less safe than might be desired. The breakfast seemed reasonable to me for a Holiday Inn Express (basics plus waffles). For those who want a big... More

Stayed here 3 nights in early April. The hotel and town was very crowded due to a flower show that weekend. It's located in a great area, close to everything in town. I haven't stayed in a holiday Inn in years and this one was a lot better than I expected. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room... More

We've stayed here three times and every time the staff was a pleasure. The rooms really are just average. Could have used a more deep cleaning though. Bed wasn't anything spectacular, kind of hard. Breakfast was NOT good. Definitely want to go out for breakfast. It's not a terrible place, just average. You expect more from a Holiday Inn Express.... More

Spent 10 days at the Holiday Inn & Suites in Summerville, SC in January. Great location away from heavy Charleston traffic. Hotel lobby area large and nicely decorated, room was quiet, comfortable and clean, breakfast plentiful with plenty of seating. Front desk and housekeeping staff were always helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.
