Very shabby hotel, had notices saying there was refurbishment going on but could see no sign of it at all. Advertised as downtown but absolutely not walkable to sights of charleston. Carpets pretty dingy and the whole place was grubby and third rate tho have to saythe beds were very comfortable. Reception on checking in could hardly be bothered with...

We were sent here from The VA hospital to stay for 2 days because of surgery. This place is not even a 1 star its horrible. The lobby, curtains and furniture was filthy and the floor wasn't much better. When we tried to complain to corporate we reached a call center in the Philippines. The representative conveniently claimed she couldn't...

The location is good and reasonably close to The Citadel where we went for a reunion and football game. That's the good. This is a tired, older property with small rooms. It could be cleaner. They advertise they are remodeling, which is sorely needed. Breakfast is provided but I would recommend walking to Burger King next door and just pay...

The hotel was clean and comfortable. Liked that they had snacks and drinks for sale in the lobby. Located near the MUSC campus, directly across from the Veteran's clinic and a couple of blocks from the Ashley River Tower clinic, which is why we were there. The only downside is the parking is limited. I would recommend to anyone visiting...

I have to be honest and say this Comfort suites really needs to kick it up . I understand it being older on the outside however , we sure felt cramped in the room, and the high window did not help. Breakfast was good. When I come back to Charleston again , I am going to check out the Embassy...

The room needs some new furniture and the seating at the booths in the breakfast area !really also in bad shape. The vinyl is tearing off chairs and benches. The desk clerks are friendly and very helpful. Close to all hospitals

Old run down hotel. Reception was uninviting and robotic. Hotel in need of some tlc. Parking sparse. Had problems with ac emitting a chemical smell everytime ac kicked on.

Our room was roomy with a sitting area. The bed was dreamy, the bath was clean. Breakfast was OK, nothing special. Reception was, unfortunately, not very accommodating. The receptionist was on the phone and showed little interest in helping us. There was a map of Charleston on the counter and when I asked if I could have one, she shoved...

This hotel was booked for a short one night stay in Charleston. We arrived late afternoon on Thursday and were promptly and courteously checked in. The desk attendant was very nice and helpful in suggesting nearby dining. Our room was very clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom appeared to have been updated and it was immaculate! The beds were extremely...

OK Room, clean and nice however furniture was extremely worn and tattered. It is extremely close to the Ralph Johnson VA Medical Hospital as well as the downtown attractions such as The Market in Downtown Charleston.
