The hotel is not luxurious, the parking lot was unpaved and we tracked in a lot of mud. The room was average. We were happy to see a microwave and refrigerator; however, the refrigerator ended up freezing our food solid! The marsh view was nice, and nicer yet was getting out and walking the boardwalk through the marsh along the rivers edge. From the boardwalk you could see the Ravenel bridge to Charleston. There are a lot of shops and restaurants nearby. Our favorite restaurant was Papa Zuzu's. The continental breakfast was average, but the river view from the eating area was great. There were seagulls in the swimming pool (this was in December, so no one was swimming).
