We were stopping for the night during a long drive. The hotel is very convenient to I64 and I77 and situated downtown which offers a ton of dining options. The front desk staff was friendly, courteous, and professional. Our room was clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast while basic, is perfect if you're interested in getting back on the road... More

The staff was friendly and most helpful. They provide transportation - including drop off and pick up - to locations around town. Everything at the hotel from welcome to complimentary breakfast was perfect. Great location - within a block walk to the mall, great shopping and good restaurants.

I stay at Hampton Inns because you know what you are going to get, and this Hampton Inn fits the bill perfectly. It is conveniently located in downtown Charleston, it is priced fairly, and breakfast is included. Tip: Make sure your room is not on the side where you can hear highway noise. I did not have that experience, but... More

We had no trouble at check in. The Hampton was easy to find. Parking was more than ample. We requested a top floor away from the elevator and that is what we got. The room was clean and well stocked. The bed was a king and nicely done in typical Hampton fashion. The free cookies and popcorn were nice. My... More

I stayed here in April/May for business. As always, the staff are very accommodating. I had one issue while I was staying there. I left some magazines on my bed before heading out for the day. When I came back to my room expecting my bed to be made, I instead found a note that said "Too many personal belongings... More

We stayed here on three different nights within a ten day period. Our first night was perfect and went off without a hitch, they even let us check in a couple hours early. The third night was also great. The second night was a disaster! We booked online as usual and when we checked in it never occurred to us... More

Overall this is a nice hotel. Although our room was claimed to be non-smoking, there was certainly an odor that made me believe the contrary. The breakfast was adequate, but if you're looking for a place to sit and eat, it wasn't available.
