“Good value”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

We were not familiar with Charleston, so we weren't sure where to stay. We didn't want to pay the price to stay right downtown, so we opted for this new hotel on the Ashley River, a couple of miles from downtown. We got really lucky, because the hotel is about one block from the free DASH trolley stop. We parked the car for free in the hotel parking lot & used the free trolley to & from downtown Charleston. The trolley stops running around 8pm, so we just took a cab back to the hotel at night, which was about $10 for the cab ride. Very convenient! The hotel was clean & the staff was very friendly. They offer free hot breakfast, which I didn't think was very good, but at least it got a bagel in my stomach to tide me over til lunch. They also offered free coffee in the lobby all day long, and that was great. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you very much for your review. You mentioned some of the best things about our hotel. Located just 1.5 miles from the heart of the Historic District with access to the Free DASH Trolley just outside the hotel. We do offer our Holiday Inn Express complimentary Smart Start Hot Breakfast Bar with various items including eggs, pancakes, signature cinnamon rolls, and bagels. We look forward to your return visit!
