Great place. Very beautiful water views from you get creek side room. Free Parking. They will arrange for transportation into Charleston. Very quiet. Will definitely stay there again! Pool is great and bar.

The location is great for a young crowd. Stayed here with a group of girls for a bachelorette weekend. Lots of bars, restaurants, kayaking, etc. within walking distance. Hotel is small (2 floors) and while the room wasn't too bad - the bathrooms definitely need to be renovated and cleaned better. There was pink mold and black mildew in the... More

Room was clean, bed was comfortable, could use new pillows. Bathroom could have been cleaner, and definitely needs a major update. Having a balcony to each room is a big plus. Location is ideal. Check in was quick check out quicker. Overall was happy.

Room was a 3... pretty run down by overall hotel standards, but better than average for a beach-town motel. Was quiet, as promised, on the creek+parking lot-side. It is a pretty busy, hoping area with bars, restaurants, and boat rental places... which I thought was pretty cool. Tristan at the Front Desk was EXCELLENT, helpful, and responsive - very nice...

We were headed to Charleston for a night but decided to leave a day early and didn't have a reservation, so we just showed up. The room was fine. I usually take pictures if I find something filthy. But it just didn't smell clean. The guy at the desk said we could walk around the docks to the different bars... More

I apologize for the confusion regarding the newly built boardwalk. The other side of the creek is accessible by foot, if you walk along the boardwalk in the direction of the road you will hop on the sidewalk of the bridge and you can walk to the other side.
