We loved this hotel. We stayed here before we moved to Charleston and love it. We stayed two different times and both times we had a great stay! The second time we were complimentary upgraded by David and it was perfect since we have a one year old! He was so welcoming and friendly! Deff recommend this hotel to anyone!

Stayed here because the location was convenient to where our son lives. Easy to get to off the interstate and there is a gas station and CVS right across the street. There also is a water park down the road but we didn't visit there. It took about 20 minutes to get to the old market I Charleston so it's... More

Hotel will be renovated end of year but still great place to stay. The staff is most helpful not only finding great local restaurants but looking after what ever we've needed. Credit to the management in hotel for putting together such great staff

Family vacation. Hotel was paid by in-laws and we did not have much say on location. At first, I was very upset due to the hotel not being in Charleston. The hotel is about 20 minute to 1/2 hr.

The staff bent over backwards for my wife's and my anniversary. Our room had wine, balloons and a card in the room when we arrived. Complimentary breakfast was good, but I missed my sausage gravy. The hotel was clean, well maintained and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a good time, which we did.

Good clean place to stay. As always I rate a hotel on the water pressure and it was excellent on the first floor. Staff was friendly and attentive at check in. Grounds were good. We were here for one night prior to a cruise out of Charleston port.
