If you want to stay in hotel with construction in the hallways. Also where, there are no non meat breakfast options. (Who puts ham in eggs #thisplace everyday) They make 3 boiled eggs a day. My purchased and untouched restaurant food and alcholic beverages were thrown in the trash. They were not near the trash. Nor did they resemble trash... More

On recent family trip stayed at Hampton Inn Downtown on way to Charleston, SC and on the way home. While the hotel was in a property wide refresh program the construction was not a hinderance. The front desk folks helpful, the room was very clean and fresh and the breakfast bar of adequate the real advantage was the location of... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times. It's not clean and not dirty. It's just a mediocre hotel. The desk clerks are always great. The cleaning staff, however, gets on my last nerve. The hotel staff apparently likes to hurry guests out of their rooms in the mornings so they can clean the rooms and punch out. They don't consider... More

The employee working check in was very kind and helpful. However, the next morning... At breakfast 3 coffee carafes were empty, many guests were looking for coffee. I watched another guest tell the front desk. Rather than fix the problem herself, she told the guest to tell the breakfast staff. The breakfast staff was busy socializing with either their friends...

We do apologize for your experience here at our hotel. I can assure you that this is not a common occurrence. However, sometimes we do have the opportunity to serve housekeeping breakfast to help boost morale especially if it is going to be a hard day for them. But this is never done during our normal breakfast hours, it is... More

We had a meeting at another hotel yet as pretty much my normal, I had my group stay here instead of the other hotel. Why you ask? Because when I come to Charleston, I stay at here because I can count on it being excellent from start to finish. Always consistently top notch.

My room was very clean. Some renovation ongoing but did not impact me. Large breakfast bar with a good selection of food. Offered free shuttle into city (3 minute drive) for any shopping or dinning. Very polite staff and helpful in recommending dining options. I will stay here again when visiting.

The staff was extremely courteous and professional. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The a/c was a bit loud, but not too disturbing. Breakfast was delicious. The ready made omelettes were good. The pool was small and a bit too warm, but my kids liked it. It was not very close to the places we went to... More

Guest room had musty sour smell. Breakfast selection was poor. Overcooked cheese omelets and under-cooked, soggy potatoes. Breakfast buffet was not kept filled and many items had not been replaced. Guests were standing around waiting on staff to replenish. Utensils were wrapped in plastic like a fast food

We do apologize for your experience here at our Hampton Inn. I also want to thank you for letting us know about our shortcomings. Without our guests letting us know what we need to improve upon we would never improve, so thank you again. After letting me know about the smell in the room at checkout we have taken care... More
