“Affordable Charleston”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2011

Stayed here for a stop in Charleston enroute to FL with my 2 teens. We found it in a coupon book fron the Welcome Center. Paid $55.62 total. It was very hot & we enjoyed the mini-fridge and the nice big pool. Staff friendly, & helpful. At breakfst they were out of oj & some cereal. It was delivered after we had breakfast But they invited us at checkout to take some for the road! We ate dinner around the corner @ La Hacienda, great food & ambience.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 1st floor between the courtyd & the outside. No view or sunlight but probab...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We pride ourselves on the pool and the landscaping around it creating a serene environment for our guests. I am sorry to hear of the issues that you had with breakfast, but I am glad to hear that my team made it up by offering some to go goodies.

Charleston is rich in history and next time you come through you should spend a couple of days to take it all in.

Thank you again

We have stayed in Charleston many times during our son's time at the Citadel. This hotel was by far the best value for the money. The hotel was very clean but it was the staff that made the stay special. Ann, Michelle and Yolanda were all very helpful, friendly and courteous. The location is very convenient. We will definitely be staying here again.

Room Tip: The rooms on the interior facing the pool would be quieter.

Great location, affordable and easy to find. Proximity to the Convention Center was great. The front desk staff were very helpful and very friendly. The helped recommend restaurants to go to and we were not disappointed. Thanks to Ann for the tip on the BBQ place ;-)
The room was comfortable, the beds were great.... the breakfast was more than adequate....overall we had a wonderful experience. This was our first time to Charleston and we would certainly stay at the North Charleston Inn again. Thanks for making our stay in the south a memorable one!

Affordable place during the off season, especially with the continental breakfast. Keya at the front desk was especially helpful. She remembered our names, why we were in the area and helped us get settled quickly and efficiently. I can't remember the last time I had a front desk attendant actually so attendant.

It's right near 26 with very quick access to 26 East straight to Charleston. As mentioned in some other reviews, there were a couple of cockroaches, but no harm done at all.

Thanks for the great stay!

We chose this hotel because we had Priority Club award points to spend. We planned to stay two nights but after having 2 rather large roaches visit we gave up our second free night and switched to an inn in downtown Charleston. The bed was comfortable but the linens were old. The staff we encountered were all very nice and customer-service oriented. Our room faced the parking lot and was on the ground floor. So it was convenient to unload the car as it was right outside the door, but at 7 am, before I planned to be awake, the guest next door started his diesel truck and left it running for what seemed 30 minutes. The breakfast could have used a few improvements. The selection consisted of white or wheat bread, bagels, mini-cinnamon rolls, 3 cereals, instant oatmeal and grits, and waffles (lots of startches) plus OJ, AJ, milk and coffee. Some fresh fruit and peanut butter would have been welcome.

Room Tip: Don't get one on the ground floor facing the parking lot.

Dear KGray1210,

Thank you for staying wih us here at the North Charleston Inn. I would like to sincerely apologize for the issues that you had encountered, The noisy engine would have irritated me as well, and the Palmetto Bug, we are calling our nationally recognized pest control company to come out and treat teh hotel again. There should have been fresh fruit (apples oranges and bananas) on top of the pastries cabinet, and the peanut butter is a good idea for a protien component which we are going to add now that this has been brought to our attention.

My team works hard to make sure that all of our guests are happy, so I am happy to hear that ou enjoed their service as well as the beds.

I ask that you give us another try next time your travels bring you through the Charleston area. Thank you again for taking the time to offer us your comments and suggestions

My daughter and I stayed on 9/9 & 9/10 and let me say that I was very impressed by the cleaniness, the outstanding customer service (thanks Ms. Ann and Keyatah) so glad I got to meet you famous women, and the location of the hotel was perfect. I was so impressed that I have already booked a room for November when we will be returning for the Miss SC USA Pageant which I might add is located just around the corner from the hotel. Thank you all for providing such a wonderful hotel without breaking my pocketbook. You are a gem!
