“2012 Charleston Christmas Holiday at Holiday Inn-Riverview”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Josh kindly checked us in on Christmas Eve after an 8 hour drive from Tampa Bay and he was so accommodating. Our lovely room, on the 11th floor, had a scenic view of the Ashley River and historic Charleston skyline. The room is very nicely appointed, well maintained, clean, with only one disappoint, no refrigerator. We were so appreciative of the convenience of The Harborview Restaurant and Lounge on the top floor which has the most delicious southern home cooked food and we thoroughly enjoyed our homemade southern cooking Christmas Dinner Buffet. The staff was so friendly and helpful and we most certainly would love to stay here in the future.

Room Tip: It is worth the extra cost to have a view of the river and downtown skyline..

Dear Robbinstratton,
Thank you so much for your business! I will share your positive comments with Josh and the entire management team. The views from the 11th floor overlooking the “Ashley River” are breathtaking and they only get better when you go to the restaurant on the top floor of the hotel. I am glad you enjoyed the – Southern Cooking from our restaurant. We look forward to you staying with us in the future.

The hotel was clean and the room was big, but needed an update, I chose to stay in this hotel because it was cheaper than the ones in downtown charleston, and it looked like it had a nice view, it wasn't disappointing. The view from the restaurant was impressive, the food was ok, as was breakfast, alot of choice. I would stay here again!

Room Tip: Higher floors should have less traffic noise.

Travelling with parents for 3 weeks across US. staff excellent, rooms very clean and big, just a bit dated. Restaurant was also just fine, nothing wowee. Breakfast was a bit of a free for all, but was well stocked.

This was a really nice, clean and comfortable hotel. We loved the restaurant on the top floor. A wee bit costly, but worth it. The view of the river was fantastic. Watching the moon rise was beautiful and in the morning the sun rise was gorgeous. Our room was on the 7th floor. Nothing spectacular, but very comfortable and clean. I totally recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The higher floor, the better for view.

This place had a great view and great location for anyone visiting Charleston. The hotel was nothing fancy, but it was clean, fairly priced, and had great views. The free breakfast buffet left a little to be desired. You might can find a hotel in downtown Charleston for around the same price but overall I was happy with my stay. Balcony doors do not open, don't expect to be able to use them.

Room Tip: River view and downtown view rooms are nice.

If you have a higher floor, the views are great. 3rd and below you should get a discount for a terrible view. Nothing but a yellow wall to see here!
The staff is friendly, the rooms are dated and cramped.

We checked into our room on the 14th floor and found hair on the bathroom floor and in the sheets. The beds were extremely uncomfortable, hard as a rock really. There was loud noise through the wall half the night and early morning, we were told it was from the bathroom in the restaurant and lounge. We woke up early from all the banging in the walls to find 2 live roaches in the bathroom and no hot water. It was the last straw we went downstairs to let them know and was told we could shower in another room but there were no rooms available to switch til after check out. We were told it would be about an hour to switch so we just waited, 3 hours later they finally called and got us a new room so we could take a shower. Fortunately we were there for leisure and not business so we only had to put off our activities we had planned for the day. They gave us one mornings free breakfast which was decent and finally got us in a new room on the 5th floor. This room was far and above better than the other one but it didn't make up for all the trouble we had the first night. I would never stay there again the location wasn't that great and for the price you could find a place downtown. The star rating should be lowered if they can't even keep roaches and hair out of the rooms.

Room Tip: Don't stay on the 14th floor there are pipes banging in the walls half the night.
