“Comfortable Two Night Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Chose this hotel based on reviews on Tripadvisor. Those reviews were accurate. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were hot and tasty (coffee was good). Rooms were clean, beds were so/so. There area seemed pretty safe and we got a pretty good rate. I would recommend this hotel to all and will stay again if in Charleston.

We recently returned from an Anniversary trip to Charleston and stayed here. This is one of the cleanest hotels with a friendly staff. Each day, we felt like family. Sherry helped us with tours and always had a smile. Ben was quick to help with directions! The breakfast was more than adequate and parking was easy, It's so nice to walk into a room and not see any signs of wear and tear or uncleanliness. We truly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Request the highest floor.

Happy Anniversary! We are so pleased that you had a wonderful Anniversary and a wonderful time in Charleston. Thank you so much for recognizing our staff, especially Sherry. All our employees take great pride in providing our guests an "experience", not just a room. We hope you have another opportunity to stay in Charleston and with us. Again Happy Anniversary!

We usually stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Mt. Pleasant but I had a coupon that was a little cheaper for this hotel so we tried it. The king room was great. Very spacious and clean. It truly did have that home away from home feeling. The night we stayed they were out of cribs so we had to let our daughter (16 mos.) sleep with us which was not pleasant but the bed was very comfortable and we will stay here again!

Needed a getaway and stayed here because of the location near just about everything. Facilities were spotless and well decorated and staff truly went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Will definitely stay here again if/when we are back in the area.

Nice and clean Holiday Inn Express. VERY friendly staff. Sherry was very helpful. Gave us the name of a great place to eat (Gilligans) and arrangeda tour for us that picked us up at the hotel. Breakfast was good.

As other reviewers have said, it's only about 10 minutes from Downtown. It's close to I-526 to hop right on and US 17 runs to all major attractions. We had no complaints. Breakfast was decent, on par with what to expect at the chain. Room was quiet and clean. We were in town to tour and stayed here 2 nights.
