“Holy City, South Carolina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

The hotel was well located, easy to get to and by far the best I've had for the price in Charleston. The bed was comfortable, the air conditioning worked and the breakfast was very good.

Room Tip: I like the 1st floor because I don't have to have the hassle of the elevator.

The hotel is a small taste of what is to come when a traveler arrives in Charleston.We received true hospitality especially from a young lady at the front desk named Leila she was gracious and very informative as to where to go and eat and what to see and do in town. Thanks Leila you made our vist to your beautifull city much more pleasant.The hotel is very clean and comfy. Breakfast was great in the morning definitely will stay there again if we vist in the future.

Leila which worked the front desk at the time of our arrival was extrememly helpful in helping us with our stay in Charleston. She was extrememly pleasant. We travel quite a bit & I have to say that this was probably the best experiance I can remember with any of the staff. I wish all of our stays were so pleasant. I felt compelled to complete this survey & to say so. I wish all my travel experiances were as nice as this one.

The staff wes very nice and helpful.
The room was very comfortable and the 42" tv perfect!!!!!
The breakfest in the morning was very good!! They always had some sort of egg dish along with biscuits and the usual stuff.
Coffee was not very good!! But most hotels serve weak coffee anyway!
Location is fine. Not a long drive to town. The pool was very clean and isolated in the rear area against the woods!
Very much worth the money!!

Room Tip: I've gotten the best price using Hotwire.

This hotel was close enough to the airport for us to stay after a late night arriving flight and provided a nice place to stay for a night at the start of our vacation before we headed to the beach. Room was big, clean and well decorated but smelled a little musty when we opened the door. Turning on the AC resolved that issue. All the staff were very friendly. Breakfast options were good for a healthy basic breakfast. We didn't try the magic pancake machine, but were intrigued. Would stay there again if we needed a hotel for a night or two.

Thank you for your review. You will have to try the pancake machine the next time you visit. It is one of the great new items Holiday Inn Express is offering on the hot breakfast buffet which is included with your room along with complimentary wireless Internet and afternoon cookies and lemonade. We look forward to having you back again!

Our first trip to Charleston,SC; we hope to come back soon and very likely we will stay here again if all works out well. They people (staff) are all very kiind and helpful. The room was kept clean, all seemed to be well maintained. Just one hitch about the room and that was that when booking we learned we MUST specify that you need/want the roll in shower in the bathroom or you may get "handicapped " shower/tub. We managed, they were apologetic and gladly reduced the room price, because we had requested the room with the roll in but did not make sure they booked it as such when making the reservation. Blow dryer died, one call to front desk and they had another one installed few minutes later. Good spot for getting onto the road or out of traffic because there is a stop light right in front of their drive.

Room Tip: When making reservations make sure you are reserving the room you want ie:handicapped with or with o...
