This was my first stay at a Cambria Hotel. The room was pretty nice. It was a good size room, with a comfortable beds, a large TV, and a small refrigerator and microwave. It was very clean and well-maintained. The Bluetooth mirror in the bathroom was interesting. We tried it out once, and the speakers were pretty loud, but we didn't really use it after that. While the room was nice overall, I have issues with some of the hotel's design choices. I can see that they are supposed to be a more "modern" hotel. Apparently modern means having a shower without a door and a bathroom with a huge, heavy sliding door that doesn't lock. I strongly advise anyone with weaker arms to find another hotel, because the sliding bathroom door took a LOT of effort to slide into place. And there isn't really a good place to get a grip on the door to do so, which makes it harder. We started calling it "the barn door" during our stay. I like having privacy when I'm in the bathroom...so I don't particularly like a door that doesn't lock. I guess it depends on who you are sharing a room with. The shower had no door, just a single pane of glass and an opening. We put a towel on the floor in front of the opening and that towel stayed soaked. I can see how this could be a major slipping hazard if you didn't put a towel down. Cambria, please put doors on your showers! The water temperature of the shower was hard to adjust as well. Whenever I turned the knob to adjust the temperature, it would take 20-30 seconds for the temperature to actually change. Also, the trash cans in the room are a bit small. You can't get much in them. The pool was nice, though a bit small. We really didn't see much of the rest of the hotel (lobby, etc.) because we used the back door at the stairwell most of the time. (Key card is required for access, which is good!) Check-in and check-out were very smooth, and staff members were friendly. I don't think I would stay here again though, mainly because of the issues mentioned above, particularly the "barn door."

Thank you for your feedback. We will share this with the appropriate people. We were hoping to find out what room you were in to fix the bathroom door. They should in no way be difficult to open and close; unless the door has fallen off its track. I have asked housekeeping to track if the bathroom door is difficult to open. Maintenance will then go in and fix.

We must have lucked out, because we got a corner room which was probably the biggest (standard priced) room we've ever stayed in. What a view too--windows from floor to ceiling along most of two walls. Loved the look of the room and my teen was loving the bluetooth speaker in the bathroom mirror. Comfortable beds and ample room to spread out. We would definitely stay here again. Friendly staff to help as well!

The hotel guest rooms are all very nice, but we do have some really great rooms! Corner rooms are requested often because of the views. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

We loved our first room and the location. However, after 1 entry (thank goodness we didn't take our stuff in then) we were forced to change bc key pad was froze. We had no shampoo or conditioner, asked daily, never received. Also, Goldfish crackers on our floor from previous guest. We did love the size of room. Restaurant had limited hours, our waiter was hard to hear and mumbled a lot. Snack area was consistently out of stock on stuff, no food vending machines.

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you did not have a 5 star experience. I will look into not getting shampoo or conditioner. That is not something we hear often. We find it difficult many times to understand people talking through face masks. I am sorry you couldn't hear the waiter; however, he is not able to remove his mask.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback concerning your stay at the Cambria Charleston. We do recognize there is an issue with parking that we are taking care of. Manager's are trained to deal with all sorts of people in our hotel. When I talked with the manager that was working, he stated he in no way felt any guests were out of place. Having a fun time at the bar is what many people do while on vacation. I sorry you did not have a good experience like the majority of our other guests.

We enjoyed our stay at Cambria. Conveniently located - It was easy to get in and out of the hotel onto roadways. We were close to downtown. We were able to find excellent restaurants nearby. The hotel itself was clean and well maintained. Staff was friendly and efficient.

Guest are very surprised to find out we are roughly 3 miles from everything (except Folly Beach at 9 miles). Guest's have options to go to the peninsula for lunch/dinner or one of the great establishments in West Ashley. Thank you for staying with us and we will see you next time!
