Very happy with our stay. Perfect place for a family or two couples. Great location on the Battery. Breakfast items were delicious. Very welcoming and helpful staff. Highly recommend this property. We hope to stay there again on our next visit to Charleston.

"Surely appreciated and well deserved."
"It's a bit pricey, but I thought it was worth it. Very relaxing."
