“Liked the Holiday Inn Express”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2006

This is just your average Holiday Inn Express. It was predictable and good value for the money. The room was clean and neat. All the public areas were clean. The only negative thing I could say was the front desk clerk was not very nice - but she was left by herself to handle quite a bit of incoming guests.

We spent three nights at this location while exploring the city of
Charleston by day. The entire staff was friendly and articulate which is a must for me. The pool was clean,well lit, and properly cholorinated which the teenagers enjoyed. The boat dealership next door was just a bit of serendipity for my husband. Staff recommended great places to eat and offered discout coupons to us. We were not use to the flat, rather than fitted, sheets but the beds were great to crawl into at the end of the day. The spider on the wall was promptly remove by the managment. The tour bus of older retired folks were loud and noisy when they arrived at night. The numerous items for a quick start breakfast were well presented and plentiful.

I don't have a single complaint. Staff was very helpful and made excellent recommendations for where to go and what to see. Hotel room clean, bathroom very clean. Provided with microwave and refigerator in room. The location was great, just a few miles from town and accross the street from the mall. Also close to great restaurants. And the best of all it was the BEST RATE IN TOWN and still close to action.

We were driving to Charleston, SC and a rain storm started. We decided to stop at the first recognizable hotel we saw and ended up at the Holiday Inn Express. We thought we were lucky because the place was almost completely booked. I was expecting a simple but clean hotel and while the lobby looked fine everything else was a disappointment. The hallways had a strange smell -which reminded me of backup sewage. The low dark ceiling probably held the smell. Our room's carpet was dirty - spotty I always had on shoes. While watching TV I saw a large Roach on the wall. I tried to attacked but it escaped under loose carpet. I had to move all the luggage off the floor. In the morning we mentioned our unwanted guest to the front desk - we were told they spray weekly. Guess the need to spray daily, I'm not going back.
