I have stayed twice for a few days within the last month. My first stay was essentially perfect, minus the weird tasting apple juice and waffles. Second stay, the weird tasting apple juice and waffles remain. The hotel is actually pretty quiet. The breakfast is fine, but items just taste weird to me. The free appetizer nights are nice if...

Six of us ladies totally enjoyed this wonderful place and its hospitality! Everyone from the front desk clerk to the housekeeping staff and kitchen staff far exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond basic customer service! My best example was the waitress, Valerie, who after we joked with her about the fire pit outside and weren't we having smores...

After having a terrible experience at a different hotel around the corner. Residence Inn was very kind and able to accommodate me. King was working the front desk, and she was great! Very informative about the hotel grounds, shuttle service, etc. she was more than helpful and a kind face after a long day. The room was exceptionally clean and...

Up to usual high standards of reliability and top notch staff. Great location. Very quiet rooms. Nice balcony off my room big enough to sit and relax enjoying the outside air. Breakfast buffet was fresh and dining area clean and welcoming. Free parking, always a plus.

This hotel is a hidden treasure! They have cocktail hours every night with different themes, a nice pool area, clean rooms & my daughter loved the towel folded as the turtle with the chocolates on the bed. Everyone we encountered that worked at the hotel was outstanding. & Free parking too! They also have a shuttle that can take you...

The room was a tad bit dated but not a major issue. Parking is safe, free, and right by the door. Calhoun St is a quick 5 minute drive. Getting back to the hotel from town is also easy - Exit 1 (Summerton) immediately over the James Island/Folly Beach bridge. Breakfast was great, socials at night were well attended. They...

Marriott Residence Inns are great for family travel, and this property is no exception to that. Decent-sized suite with a kitchen area, very clean and well-provisioned, free wi-fi & parking, daily hot breakfast included. Everyone who works there is friendly and helpful. They also serve a free small "meal" in the evening (pizza one night, chicken sandwiches another) Though it...

We loved our stay at this hotel. Very kind staff, great breakfast buffet and wonderful afternoon snacks - we enjoyed the Tuesday grill night. The only "but" is that the room was a little small. For the price we were paying we expected it to be more spacious, but it wasn't. However, we managed to move around without bumping with...

Our stay was great. We were able to cook most meals in the kitchen, and our dog was very comfortable. There is a large field to the side of the hotel to walk her. Apparently pets are put into rooms with doorbells. The breakfasts are wonderful, and it's one less meal to cook/buy. I took my dog to Sullivans Island...

We selected this hotel because it states they are pet friendly. Charging a $100 non-refundable fee for a pet is NOT friendly. We have stayed at several other Residence Inns in other cities and this is the ONLY one to ever charge us. The manager was unwilling to wave the fee. This was a disappointment for my family.
