5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Yes, this is technically a motel due to outside facing rooms, however the service, cleanliness and perks made it feel better than a motel. Staying in or around downtown isn't cheap, the inn was a 15 min Uber ride to downtown with traffic. We were pleased. Breakfast was what you'd expect for being free.

It was my second experience with this hotel that was even better than first. Room was very clean and fresh. Bed was very comfortable. A/C was turned on before we entered the room. Friendly staff; we've been offered bottles of water at the time of check-in and check-out. The breakfast was pretty various. Approximately 15 min. to drive from historical... More

I checked in around 2 a. m. and the staff was fantastic! The first thing that I noticed was the security button when I could not enter. Loved this option. Safety is a great concern for employees. The breakfast was fresh and the staff was very friendly and helpful when I asked for directions. You cannot go wrong for the... More

Not a fan of outside entrance rooms, but once inside...ALL was well. Room was very CLEAN! Nice decor and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Convenient to Historic downtown Charleston (10 min. drive or less). Close to connectors to James Island and Folly...we were headed to Folly for the day. I would stay there again.

Had I been told the room was not smoke free and animals had been in there and there were many walking their pets, I would have gone elsewhere. I could get an oceanview room at Courtyard Marriott for $99, but I had the coupon book, but was not allowed to use it. I was there for medical purposes.

A great stay within 15 mins from The College of Charleston. Outdoor pool, free breakfast with pancakes, waffles, eggs, breads, meats,yogurt,fruit,juice,coffee,tea..This deserves an A+. Only issue was carrying bags up stairs to second floor room.

Great place to stay with a 10 minute drive to the Charleston Historic District. The breakfast included both cold and hot items that should appeal to most people. The room was clean and all the employees were friendly and helpful.
