“Extreme Mildew”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

I have traveled all over the world and never experienced the extreme mildew smell like at Day's Inn in downtown Charleston.

Every room on the 1st floor, and I mean every room, stank of mildew. It was extreme. It took 3 hours and many sniff tests before settling, yes settling, for a room on the 2nd fl. It seems the 2nd floor does not have the mildew issue because all the water flows to the 1st floor.

I cannot believe no one has become ill from the stench esp. If one has respiratory issues. I'd be careful of litigious individuals if I was the manager of this Day's Inn.

However, there were two good things:
1. The motel was well located.
2. A parking space came with the room so did not have to pay an extra $20/day to park.

Don't say I did not warn you. If you must stay in this motel be sure to ask for a room on the 2nd floor.

Good luck.

there seemed to be a problem with the air conditioner in the room as it appeared to giving off stale air. left with a serious sore throat. There was no breakfast available at the inn. there was a restaurant for an additional cost.

Room decor was pleasant and facilities was clean. Freezer in mini fridge was coated in several inches of ice so was not working well. Desk chair was broken so tipped sideways and could not be adjusted.

Had trouble finding reasonably priced accommodation in Charleston. Started by looking at the outskirts but found these weren`t all that much cheaper and we`d have to deal with driving in and out. Motel was easy to find.
Had no great expectations and it all went as we expected. The motel room was small but comfortable. King bed, fridge, free wifi and it was great to just park outside the door although the parks were tight. I`m not one to subscribe to <room doesn`t matter it`s just somewhere to sleep> but it was ok and we both were happy.
Front desk was obliging and changed our room when I didn`t want to be next to the swimming pool.
Position was great and sightseeing was within easy walking distance with plenty of choice for restaurants
