Stayed here 01/14-15 and heater was non functional. Young lady came to fix but couldn't so unplugged and said "use another blanket". She was not maintenance and not her fault but come on...use another blanket!! 20 degrees overnight! Common problem at this hotel apparently. Front desk in the morning (Vicki Bayless) pledged to credit my hhonors with free night points... More

I stayed at this hotel due to it's close proximity to the airport as I had an early flight. Although this hotel has been around awhile it is in good shape with a friendly staff. My complaint though is that it is far too noisey from the nearby Interstate (and I do mean nearby). It is a bridge so you... More

On our most recent annual trip to the Charleston Civic Center for the WinterJam Concert we selected this location for our overnight stay. We have stayed at a number of properties in our five previous times attending. Even with renovations going on, this is by far the best of the Hotels within walking distance of the Civic Center. The FREE... More

Vicki the at check-in went above and beyond her call of duty. I had made a mistake when booking the reservation and she was so helpful and took a lot of stress off of me. The whole service was excellent and accommodations. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

The hotel is lovely, affordable, clean, safe and comfortable. Undoubtedly, the staff is the friendliest and most professional staff I have encountered! Miss Vicki, the Manager, is an asset to the hospitality business! The popcorn, cookies, breakfast, and the other extras were great.

This is a very nice hotel in a very convenient location, and it is certainly of the quality one would expect for Hampton Inns. However, the sofa bed in our room was maybe twin-sized as opposed to the usual double or queen size. Given that there were five of us supposed to stay in the room, the king bed plus... More

We have been staying here for several years when we are in Charleston, WV and have always had great service and friendly atmosphere. It's just off I-77 and in the middle of many restaurants and events.

We arrived late and tired to the hotel. My pregnant wife and 5 year old really needed to crash and since we normally stay at any Hampton Inn we were not expecting the room to be a little dirty and the air condition to be nonfunctional. I tried to turn it off on multiple occasions and it just kept working.... More

I am from charleston, but live out of state now, and I frequently stay at this hotel. The beds are perfect. The breakfast is always great - they always have something different. Once it was little breakfast "pizzas"... another time little premade omelets. They have the standards too - waffles, breads, pastries, fruits, cereal, yoghurt, hard-boiled eggs. Staff is always...

From the onset of my arrival I sensed there would be issues. I would like to preface this review by stating the hotel or the surrounding are undergoing some demolition/reconstruction. The parking lot was full. Not just with cars of lodgers by of construction trucks and dumpsters. I did find one small spot (handicapped) next to a dumpster. I was... More
