We stayed here 3 nights while visiting Charleston. It is a little bit of a drive to the downtown area, but we like staying in a more suburban area and didn't mind the trip. Lovely hotel, nice pool, very nice guest room, good workout facility and great happy hour with wine, beer and appetizers. We didn't need to go out to dinner afterwards! Used the guest laundry, which required a small fee, but was convenient. Cookies and ice water in the lobby were nice features. Didn't care for the touch screen computer in the business center. Too difficult to use. Desk clerks were helpful with maps and directions.

This is a good hotel to stay if you don't want to spend alot on downtown lodging + parking fees. It was a quick 10 min drive to downtown. Meters are free on Sunday & you can park free along the battery any day but this fills up very quickly, be there by 9. The hotel is behind a Toyota dealership currently under a remodel and there is a Food Lion just across the street. Just follow the signs when getting off the freeway for the Hampton.

The room was clean and avg however it always felt somewhat damp or humid. It was very hot and humid outside so I just assumed this was the reason for such.

Breakfast had your typical fare incl yogurt, coffee, juices, waffles, fruit, etc... since there is a Krispy Kreme location down the street they order some for breakfast. :)

My biggest issue here was the fitness center. It was located in a separate "pool house" outside and you have to walk thru a gate pass the pool to access and the while the a/c was running the whole time, the temp never got below 86f degrees.

We had a great experience here with a very friendly and accommodating staff. We needed an early check-in to take a conference call for business and the staff did a great job of getting us set up in plenty of time to take care of our obligations before starting our stay in Charleston. The hotel is also in a great spot that is convenient to Folly Beach and this historic district.

We stayed here from July 1 - July 3, 2012 and had a pretty good time. The hotel itself is very clean and the staff was very friendly. We stayed as a family and had two rooms both were just regular rooms, not suites. Breakfast in the morning was very good and the staff worked very hard keeping up with the guests needs. The pool was excellent as well. Location wise it is in a good spot by being south of downtown Charleston right off of Hwy. 17. It is about a 10 minute drive to the historic areas and the visitor center, as well as being only a 10 to 15 minute drive from Folley Beach, so you get the best Charleston has to offer within 15 minutes.

My only knock against the hotel and why I give it a four instead of five stars was the lack of signs helping to find the place. I travel all the time and use a GPS and the hotel was still difficult to find. It is tucked away behind a Toyota dealership that is under constuction so I don't know if perhaps some of the directional signs are down during the build or not. After you actually find the place it is really easy to get to, just that initial time can be a little hard. The hotel's elevators also had a slight knock for as there is only one main one in the lobby that serves the entire hotel and is perhaps the slowest elevator I have ever seen.

Don't let that scare you off once you find it the hotel is a good place to stay and I look forward to going back.

Stayed here for one night over the July 4th week. The hotel is situated right off of Rt 17 which was along our travel path so it was in a perfect location. It is clean in both the common areas and in the room. The room had everything we needed and was pretty modern if not nearly new. The breakfast was big and well-optioned. The front desk staff was extremely polite and caring to our needs; kudos to them! We at next door at the Japanese steakhouse, saving some gas and travel time and fully enjoyed it. If you select this hotel, you won't regret it. Just make sure you look at Mapquest for directions. The entrance is not right on Rt 17, you have to make three rights to get to the lobby entrance.

We stayed here for one night during a cross-country motorcycle trip. The front desk staff was very friendly and willing to allow us to park the motorcycles underneath the canopy at the main entrance in case it rained overnight. Prior to arriving we had called about this option but they were not willing to commit; the desk clerk at the time we checked in was extremely accommodating and readily allowed us to do this.

The rooms are basic - the bed was very comfortable but the furniture was definitely used. The morning full breakfast was complete with cold, hot (eggs, waffles, etc.) and had good hours until 10am. The pool was nice and used by many guests. Overall the cost of the hotel is reasonable - we paid $129 for what they consider a king bed study room - with the breakfast option it was worth the cost.

There are only a couple of restaurant options within walking distance - one is a Japanese restaurant which we opted for and found to be very good and reasonably priced.

After check-in, we were quite surprised to find a hand-written, personalized note on the desk in the living area of our suite. What a nice touch, especially considering we were staying only one night.

Other nice, unexpected touches: coffee/tea/fresh fruit station just outside the elevator on our floor; little extras (mouthwash, shower cap, cotton swabs) among the toiletries; microwave popcorn alongside the coffee/tea/sundries on the kitchenette counter; poolside towels, in our case hand-delivered by an friendly attendant.

Breakfast buffet (on a Monday morning) offered a wide variety of items, from western omelettes and home-fries to make-your-own waffles to the usual continental items. They even had fresh Krispy Kremes! Area was well-stocked, even considering the hotel was home to a large group of teenagers that week.

Rooms and common areas were clean. Beds were comfy. Bathroom was spacious. All-in-all, a great value and good location. We will be back!
