“Mistakes made - buy good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Stayed at the hotel in August. There were mixups with the rooms but the hotel made up for it so I can't complain. Overall I think it is a pretty good hotel. Get the extended room if you can as it can comfortably sleep
6 plus a crib. Couple of fast food places within walking distance. 5 -8 minutes to bowling center in Goose Creek. 30 minutes to Folly Beach..

My sister and I stayed at this facility over the Labor Day Holiday and we were both very pleased. We arrived around 5PM and were greeted by Elizabeth at the front desk. She checked us in within a matter of minutes, and was extremely pleasant. Throughout our stay she made great recommendations for places to eat, things to do, and topped it off with great directions.

Our room was clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the bathrooms were pristine. I was most pleased with the towels They were a crisp white and they smelled fresh.

The only downside to the room was the air conditioner. It was a little loud. However, it was easy to overlook because everything else about the hotel and their staff was so good.

I occasionally ran into members of the housekeeping staffs in the hallways or on the elevator. They were especially welcoming. Tonya was always smiling.

The complimentary breakfast was pretty good also. There was a good variety, and the food was hot. Breakfast is served until 9:30, but I would suggest going early. There was some type of tournament going on during our stay and it got really crowded after 8.

There are some pretty decent chain restaurants within about 5 miles, and several fast food chains that are very close to the hotel (within walking distance).


My check out was very easy. On the morning of check-out, the final bill was placed under my door. I could have just left the key cards in the room without stopping at the front desk. However, since everyone had been so great, I wanted to let the person at the front desk know about it. I was greeted by Mr. Joe. He too was great. If I'm ever in the area again, I will surely stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: I requested a room on the top floor since the hotel is in a busy area of town and right next door to...

I stayed here for 1 night to attend a wedding in Charleston. We booked online in advance, checked in around 4:30pm. The hotel is located off a very busy road and near everything. Quite impressed with the hotel, especially since it is located near the local college. The room we were given was great, very large king room on the 4th floor. No complaints with this hotel, they offer a free breakfast with many choices and hot food items. Food area was enclosed in its own area off from the lobby. The lobby was clean and welcoming. The hotel desk clerk was helpful and pleasant. We loved our towels, we have stayed in about 4 hotels within the last 2 months and this hotel was the only one that offered very soft bath towels.

I will stay here again, if in the Charleston area. This hotel is only 20mins from downtown Charleston and 5 mins. from the mall and many stores and restaurants.

Room Tip: If you like a King, ask for room 401. Also non-smoking hotel and very serious about it.

We have stayed at this facility several times and have never been disappointed. The front desk staff are friendly and on the ball, the breakfast worker is pleasant and efficient and the rooms are always spotless! We already have our next room reserved for an upcoming trip!

We stayed here in August 2013. We were greeted by Tanya who was very helpful & friendly with our check-in procedure. She even later asked how we liked our room, as I later walked by the front desk.

We found our room to be clean, cool, and very comfortable. We made use of the complimentary coffee & refrigerator. There is also a microwave oven. The beds were comfortable & equipped with soft & firm pillows.

Unfortunately, we weren't able to stay long enough to try out the pool, so I can't comment on that.

The breakfast area was spacious and comfortable, something you don't always get at hotels. Also the breakfast had hot and cold items with juice & coffee. I had a "made-to-order" pancake "machine". I mention this only since it was something I hadn't seen. The breakfast attendant was also helpful and attentive.
