At first look ok, but when lifted toilet seat terrible smell of raw sewage, tub took forever to drain, housekeeping knocked on door several times and even tried entering within 2 hours of checkout time. Recommend paying more and going somewhere else.

There's nothing much to stay about this place and that's a good thing at this price point. The bed was comfortable enough. Room and bathroom were clean. I read reviews that the trains were loud but I slept like a baby. If you need a cheap stop-over in Charleston, I recommend the Budget Host Inn.

Room and bedding were clean and fresh smelling. Bathroom was spotless. Lady who served us was very pleasant and helpful. Stayed in room facing river which was very quiet. Pulled out my lawn chair and a book and spent 2 hrs by the river reading :) Would definitely stay again.

I very seldom even look at a Budget Host Inn based on previous experience. I'm glad i read reviews and booked the room. Very clean and comfortable. Had room in back with river view.......also quieter. Staff friendly and helpful. Outside appearance is inviting, well maintained and easy to find. Would certainly recommend.

This hotel was perfect for a last minute decision to stay overnight in Charleston on the way to North Carolina. I had read other reviews about how nice and clean it was, and I'm so glad I listened. It was right off the highway, easy to find. I was surprise at how comfortable the bed was. And the price didn't... More

Great motel but this maybe a one off incident that happened with me. The staff was mean, irresponsible, and bang on the tables to talk about a situation rather than dealing with it peacefully. I hope no other customer will have to be in that situation.

Simple one-story brick motel. Slightly shopworn but well maintained. Very clean, everything worked. Nice large screen TV, HBO, refrigerator, hair dryer, free WiFi. No coffeemaker or microwave. Parking 3 ft. from door. Free coffee in office. (No Sweet&low! :-) ). No newspapers available on site. Anchor restaurant next door, long established pizza, pasta, wings and sandwich place with full bar... More

We awoke at 2 a.m. to several drunk and/or high members of a motorcycle gang (whom we found had rooms on the front side of the hotel, same side as us) pounding on our door. Luckily the doors there are pretty impenetrable. When we didn't answer, the gang went running down the row of rooms, pounding for a while on... More
