Charleston, SC
Reviewed November 1, 2014

Never been to this area before so wasn't sure what to expect. This room is one of the cleanest hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. The front desk staff was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and in helping with wifi logon. Will definitely stay here again.

Nice, clean place. Great breakfast! Room 114. King bed, kitchenette, whirlpool. Bed was very comfortable. Did hear children running in room overhead. But, kids will be kids. Elevator at room so you do hear some noise. But overall id stay again
