My family stayed at this hotel for two nights while we visited the Charleston area. We paid $90.00/night for a "non-view" room with two double beds. I'm a priority club member, and prior to check-in I requested a room on a high floor.
First of all, the hotel is not at all hard to find, it's just the "getting into the driveway off the highway" part thats a challenge. However, after entering/exiting the hotel a few times, it becomes a piece of cake.
When we checked in, we had a very friendly and compassionate desk clerk check us in and get us to our room. They honored my request for a high floor, and they even gave me a room with a very nice view as an upgrade for being a priority club member. We were on the 11th floor. Once we got to our room, there were chocolates, cookies, pretzels, and two bottles of water waiting for us as a "thank you" from management for being a priority club member. The rooms appear to have been very recently renovated and updated with new furnishings. While some say the rooms are small, we were comfortable and had more than enough room.
The beds here are amazing! There were firm and soft pillows to choose from, and there was a very nice duvet on the bed. We slept great each night and despite being right on the highway, the room was extremely quiet. The bathroom area was very clean and the showerhead was really nice.
The room in general was very clean and well layed out. While it was a disappointment to not be able to go on the balcony, the views from inside the room were just as night.
We took advantage of the free shuttle from the hotel to the historic charleston district. The shuttle was always on time and the driver was very friendly.
The staff here really does try to go above and beyond for you. When I went to the front desk for an extra blanket, instead of just getting an ordinary blanket from housekeeping, the clerk insisted on giving me a brand new, right out of the package blanket.
For the money, you can't possibly ask for more. While we were originally going to stay in the historic district, I'm really glad we decided not to. We saved $200-300 by staying here....and I think this place is awesome.
