“Very good for the price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Rooms are comfortable and clean. Hotel is in a good area, walking distance from many attractions. Small pool, but adequate. You can request a memory foam bed, if available. Free parking for hotel guests. Not great views regardless of room viewpoint.

We arrived before check-in; however, Rachel let us store our bags until we returned to check-in. Rachel was friendly, courteous, and all-around a good person during our visit.

This hotel is clean and rooms are nice.
The (free) trolley service to the downtown historic district runs behind the hotel and is convenient. This is a plus because taxi rates into the historic district are high.

Room Tip: The free trolley stops running by the hotel at 8:00pn. If you are not interested in the historic di...

The hotel was older, but nice. It had been updated some. It was in a good location and offered a free breakfast. However, the coffee was out and there were no cups at 6:30 when breakfast began. It took a few minutes to get these things out. The front desk clerks could have been a little more knowledgeable about places to eat close to the hotel. We were not asked about our stay when we checked out. We would probably stay there again.

A HUGE Thank You for the honesty of Alicia in returning money I had accidently left in our room upon departure. It's not often you find individuals in this situation that would have been as honest. Alicia, thank you again, I wish you good Karma!

I also want to thank Rebecca, the General Manager, for her quick follow-up in contacting us and having the items returned to me in a timely manner.

I have nothing but positive memories of our stay at the Charleston Downtown-Ashley River Holiday Inn Express!!!

This is a nice hotel on the outskirts of town - it's about a mile to the top of King Street and a couple of miles to the oldest part of town at the tip of the peninsular. Fortunately it's easy walking (all flat) and it felt quite safe at night. There's free parking, the breakfast was above average and the room was well furnished, clean and comfortable. The only downside was that it was quite pricey, but then all the hotels we considered in Charleston were expensive and this seemed like the best deal. It probably didn't help that we stayed there over a weekend and there was a fair on in town.

This is a great hotel if you want to visit Charleston and want to take your dog. The hotel is very clean, the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and the facilities are very good. The breakfast is perfect, functional and there is plenty of seating. The location is good, a free trolly can get you downtown, and if you want to eat locally there are a couple of very good restaurants close by.
