My wife and I had not been on vacation without the kids for almost five years so when we decided to take a trip we thought we would book a nice downtown Charleston B&B. Unfortunately it was a last minute decision and a holiday weekend, so there wasn't much available. We decided to stay a little outside downtown and use the savings to eat our way around Charleston. We chose this hotel for its proximity to downtown, the free evening shuttle and the free breakfast.
The front desk staff was very friendly and efficient, as was the breakfast staff. We requested an upper room facing the marina based on prior reviews. It's not the greatest view but it didn't cost anything to ask. The room showed its age in spots but was clean. We appreciated the two televisions, one for the bedroom area and the other for the sitting area. The breakfast was the usual waffles, eggs, cereal, etc. and we didn't experience the lack of seating that other reviewers have mentioned.
The only negative experience to mention involved the shuttle. The first evening was cold and we, along with about 15 other guests, were waiting for the shuttle in the lobby when the driver drove by without stopping. The front desk called and he returned about 25 minutes later. We were upset at the time, I think because we were really hungry, but the rest of the trip the shuttle was fine and it allowed us to have some good wines and not have to worry about driving.
