“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2010

Stayed at the hotel from Dec. 11th-16th. We had some doctor appoinments with MUSC. The hotel provided shuttle service to and from MUSC daily. I was very thankful for this. The room was very nice and clean. Will stay again. Access to downtown was very easy from their location. Was also nice having California Dreaming just in walking distance. Thanks to all the staff, all was very nice and helpful!

I stayed here in May 2007. What I liked about the hotel was that the staff were very friendly and they actually go out of their way to accomodate people! Also, the elevators were very nice and the breakfast was decent. But the 1 thing that I did not like about this hotel was the rooms. There was a hole in the sheet and the shower curtain was dirty! But the excellent staff just can't make up for the rooms. I give them credit for being very friendly and making my stay better.

We stayed here because we didn't want to drive into Charleston. The Hotel shuttle ran at specific times and made a reasonable charge. Lovely location overlooking the harbour and very friendly staff. Rooms were clean and it had a nice breakfast and dining area. We only stayed one night but managed 8 hours in Charleston. Hotel caters for tours but there is plenty of room at breakfast. We had a leisurely check out before driving to Saavannah Airport. Allow plenty of time if going to Savannah as there are many roadworks and speed restrictions.

Hotels in Charleston on the weekend are outrageously expensive. So, I got a room at La Quinta for only $129 before taxes, not too bad.

I got a very clean room, newly painted, new furniture, new bathroom. No complaint.

Now, it was a small room, and it did not have a fridge to park a few drinks...it was very hot that weekend.

It looks a bit like a motel with a front window looking out on an exterior walkway. It meant that we had to keep the curtains on for privacy. That's not good. The room was dark.

I paid extra to have a "magnificent view" over the marina. Well, not quite. You have to be outside of the room to have a somewhat pleasant view of a very small marina.

Breakfast was included in the price. Plastic forks, knives, plates and cups. Not very appetiziing. But the place was clean.

The staff was wonderful. At the desk, in the shuttle, everywhere. Thanks you folks!

We did not have a car, and the hotel is far, far from the center of Charleston. So, it was nice to have a shuttle taking you to and from the center of town. For $8 a day. Nice touch.

So, there are some pros and cons with this hotel.

But more pros than cons.

Thank you for staying at the LaQuinta Charleston Riverview. We appreciate all guest comments that will help us to improve and maintain excellent service. You did stay in our exterior section of the hotel - which is the newly rennovated area, and if you were not satisfied with that accommodations, we would have been more than happy to move you into our interior corrider if the availability permitted. We do offer marina view rooms which most of our guests enjoy and I am sorry you were not satisfied with the view you had from your room. We do hope your comments help other travelers choose our hotel because of the friendly staff, clean rooms and location. We do hope to see you again soon. Thank you again!!

The staff was very friendly and helpful at the hotel. The staff was kind enough to make recommendations for local restaurants, attractions and shopping. The room had free wi-fi, two double beds, and plenty of room for the four of us (two adults and two young children). The kids loved getting to make their own waffle every morning in the downstairs dining room. They also loved the view of the boats we could see from the foyer of the hotel.

We only stayed here one night and probably would not have stayed there if it had not been dog friendly. Staff was very nice but the room was not equipped with microwave or fridge, no bags in the trash cans, and the remote was difficult to use, probably due to age. One resturant within walking distance and it was good food, not so good service.

Thank you for staying at the LaQuinta Charleston Riverview. We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback from our guests in which it helps us to continue to grow to be a better hotel. Our brand hotel is known for its wonderful pet friendly policy and our staff enjoys seeing your four legged friends. Our hotel does not provide micro/fridges in all the rooms but the next time you visit please look into reserving one of our Executive Kings in which this room type does offer such amenity. We do hope to see you and your extended family member again soon.

Came here with a girls athletic group in a minibus that had their matches at a neighboring prep school Porter Gaud. This hotel is in 2 buildings. The front desk is in the main building that has interior corridors and the other building has exterior corridors. If you do not want exterior corridor, you must specify it in your reservation. Also this is a pet friendly hotel so bring Fi Fi, Fido and Tinkerbell. There is an exercise room with True equipment in there. There is a bike, crosstrainer, treadmill and multi purpose weight machine in that room. Outdoor pool there also. Be sure you have bug repellent since the hotel pool is next to a grassy marsh area if bug bites give you a fit.
My room was a 2 double bed set up in the exterior corridor building. That room was the smallest I have seen with 2 double beds. No room for rollaway and no room for a small crib either. Bed was comfortable, YAY! Great TV channel line up and a great shower head that was powerful. Room was nice and clean. My gripes were that the room door is not flush with the threshold and frame, therefore letting in lots of light and a weak Wifi signal in room at times.
Parking a mini bus or motor coach is easy there and there is a Restaurant, California Dreaming in walking distance for lunch and dinner. Shuttle is available to take you to downtown for a small fee.
Hotel does have Free continental Breakfast and Belgian Waffles, yum. Wish they would have individual yogurts instead of yogurt in a ceramic vat. Not appetizing.
There is a Boat Marina there that is private called Ripley Light. You will see some nice cabin cruisers and yachts there and house boats and fisherman's boats there also. There some Charter boat services there also and a "Boatel" next to hotel.

Thank you for choosing the LaQuinta Charleston Riverview for your sports group stay during that event. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback from our guests and I am thankful you were so specific about everything our hotel has to offer to our guests. The issue with the internet service has been fixed and we finally have a truly strong internet signal. The gap between the door and the door frame threshold to the room you occupied are being addressed and there will be a perment fix to this issue soon. We do hope to see you again and thank you again for your comments.
