Don't fool yourself this is a highway motel in the middle of historic downtown Charleston. My problems started upon check-in (about 5pm) when I realized I made a mistake booking a smoking room and asked the reception staff member to get me a non-smoking one. He couldn't do anything (or didn't want to ?) and told us we would need to talk to the manager on the following morning (even though there was non-smoking rooms available right there!). So what's the point of a 24 hour check-in if the person cannot resolve a simple request ? Extremely rude, unprofessional and unhelpful.
Anyways I went upstairs to check the room and it was horrendous...The building seemed was gonna fall apart anytime soon, the room was old and the bathroom really tiny, terrible, dirty and was smelling!! I've been to some hostels (yes HOSTELS) in South America and I can tell you...some of them were better and comfy than this one.
At the end of the night I called expedia up to get me a new hotel as I couldn't even think on the idea of sleeping there.
Location? it's in the heart of downtown Charleston but again don't fool yourself...this is a motel like any other motel you find along any interstate across America.
You can stay at a chain hotel 1 mile away and get a cab to go downtown...or park your car at any public parking garage...or some hotels offer shuttles to go downtown. And the best part is the hotels 1 mile away are less expensive and offer all the comfort you need.
Do yourself a favor and stay at a different place and enjoy this beautiful city!
