4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Glad we were not put off by negative reviews. Stayed in a non smoking room on the second floor and we were very satisfied, not a single complaint. The staff was friendly and efficient. We brought our bikes and they cheerfully stored them and took them out for us repeatedly. The breakfast was excellent with many choices including oatmeal which made me particularly happy. Coffee and tea available all day. Would definitely stay here again.

I travel to Charleston on business several times per month, and I've found this hotel the best value in the historic area. I can easily walk or ride the shuttle any place I need to go, so I just park my car and forget it. The hotel staff have always been quite friendly and helpful.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Hampton Inn July 24-27. The front desk staff couldn't have been more helpful; the bell captain helped us in many ways (including securing a taxi) and the breakfast was very good. The room was spotless and very quiet. I have usually been happy with Hampton Inn; I would tag this property as one of their best. Also, the location is close to many attractions and excellent restaurants.

Room Tip: If street noise (traffic) bothers you, ask for a side room.

we picked this hotel for a family trip as my wife daughter and mother in law had been here several years back and were very pleased with stay and access to Charleston Visitor center. I was very pleased with the professional, exemplary service provided by the staff from front desk to breakfast staff to other staff. We stayed on first floor..close to front desk,breakfast,business center,fitness center and exit to the visitor center and trolley stop. We wii return to this hotel every time we have an opportunity visit Chaleston area agin.

Room Tip: First floor has its advantages but with it comes the traffic noise throughout the day and some at ni...

This Hampton Inn was very clean, comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. It almost made me not want to go out. The bed was as comfortable as my bed at home. The location was great but sadly not within walking distance of a lot of attractions. We still needed to drive to most places. It was right off of King Street which was nice, though. I highly recommend this hotel. The front desk staff was very helpful in helping find where we wanted to go.

We stayed here during a pre-cruise tour of historic Charleston. It's a good location directly across from the Charleston Visitor Center and a trolley stop. Our family party booked two Queen's Court rooms. We had French doors that led directly out to the large beautiful grassy center courtyard plaza and pool. The front desk service personnel were very prompt, knowledgeable and friendly - there were always one or two people on hand to answer any questions. Good free breakfast. We cruisers always like to find a park and cruise hotel for pre or post cruise stays, but parking is at a premium in old Charleston. Since our first priority was to stay close to the historic district, rather than selecting a suburban more distant lodging, we just paid to park. We felt it was well worth it. We could walk anywhere. A great restaurant, Coast, is right next door.

Room Tip: If you like easy access to fresh air, or want want access to outdoor smoking areas, or you like a li...

Went to Chas. for a little detour for my daughters fresh. orientation at USC. I am a Hilton Honors member, and requested a 2 QB room. Upon arrival on 16 June, we were informed we were upraded to the Ashley room. Quite awesome. 1st floor, close to front desk/breakfast buff. Hampton ppl. know what I mean. But, room is huge, I mean huge.... 2 QB, Sitting area. Wet bar, sitting chairs. Decour dated, but very clean. Maid service fine. Great hotel location, mentioned on other reviews. Parking was 12 bucks a night. Embassy Suites backs right up to the back of the property. An excellent property to stay.. Really a good location.

Room Tip: If you can get the Ashley Room, do it.
