Our stay at the Harbourview Inn turned out to be very nice. With that said it was not what we expected which is my own oversight. At a quick glance the website, reviews, and price give the impression that it is more upscale than it really is with some nice marketing. At check in we were given a room that had some issues which were addressed after we discussed with the manager. We were moved to another room on the harbor side of the building. The rooms on the back side of the building have a view of a power station that is ominous / scary looking. I would recommend ensuring you not stay in those rooms especially at the price point of this hotel. Also no pool, restaurant, or bar. Ok that is all the bad stuff. The good news is the hotel and its staff work very hard to help you overcome these issues. Room service continental plus breakfast every morning or enjoy on the roof top helps with no restaurant . Wine, cheese, and fruit every-evening helps with no bar. Milk (or wine by request) and cookies each night. The location was good and 99% of the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Hanks for seafood (Grouper) was awesome. Morning kayaking at Charleston Outdoor Adventures with our guide Cooper was great!
