I would have given this hotel 4 stars but the bathroom wasn't real clean. The room itself was very clean. You can tell there had been many renovations. The decor was bright and pleasant. The staff was friendly and helpful. Easy parking. Comfy beds. Breakfast was average for a hotel. They did have a few more healthy options than most.... More

This hotel is now known as Charleston Capital Hotel. The management is very good, polite and the rooms spacious. The beds are very comfortable and clean. Breakfast is good with a good variety to choose from. Its definitely very good value for the money you pay. I will definitely love to stay in this place whenever we pass through Charleston... More

DON'T BOOK THE CHARLESTON CAPITOL HOTEL!! Check in was a nightmare; they had problems with a guest and called the police; the room they assigned to me first was not cleaned (about one third of of their rooms were not available because the had NOT been serviced!); the housekeeper walked into my room without knocking while I was getting into...

The location is right off I64/77 so it is very convenient to get to. The hotel has plenty of amenities, including breakfast, coffee (in room and lobby), cookies, free bottled water, pool, hot tub, fitness center, and free wi-fi. The room was pretty clean and the bed is very soft. My one complaint would be the front desk, who seemed... More

I'm from Charleston but now live and work out of state so I stay in hotels when I'm in town now. This is by far the best place to stay in Charleston for 60 bucks (booked through Expedia). It's not perfect but the rooms are modern and clean, the beds are comfortable and did I mention that it's only $60?... More

This place is a hidden gem for the $60 spent!! The staff are extra friendly and go the extra mile especially Doug!! The bed is very comfortable and the breakfast was surprisingly good with plenty of choices for the picky eater. For a place to stay on a road trip I don't think you could find much better.

This hotel was just a stop over on our way to Atlanta. It met the basic needs for our stay. The location right off the highway was the best part because it was long-needed after our drive. The breakfast was good.

Stayed here with my fiancé while he was testing for a job. So scary. The hallways smelled like urine and there were sketchy people walking around. The room was dingy and dirty. There were stains on the bedding and the bathroom was dingy. This hotel made me not want to move to Charleston.
