“Excellent Location for Charleston Historical District”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

We stayed here for three nights on our September holiday. The reception staff were extremely helpful, service was perfect and the rooms were clean, comfortable although slightly small.
The only negative was the street noise which started every morning early on Hasell Street. We have complained to the hotel about this but not heard anything other than they will look into it. The first morning I went to check the window was closed as it was so loud. I couldn't see what it was but I think it was refuse collections.
This did not detract from the great hotel in a great city and would highly recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Avoid Hasell Street rooms especially near the elevator at the rear of the hotel.

Thank you for the nice TripAdvisor review! My Chief Engineer has contacted the City about the Hasell Street noise. I appreciate your honest feedback and apologize for the unpleasant experience. I hope this incident does not deter you from visiting us again in the near future. Thank you.

I was very happy that I chose this hotel! It's very close to everything, walked just about everywhere. The staff is extremely friendly, Richard (doorman) was one of our favorites, very helpful! The room was great, clean, loved the Keurig coffee maker. The free parking is a bonus. I will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Charleston!

Wonderful place to stay in Charleston. Staff were very friendly. Nice lounge and dining areas. My least negative comment is that Best Western should offer complimentary breakfasts in line with other hotels such as Hampton Inns, Holiday Express, etc. However, the breakfast menu items were under $7 so it was affordable.

My husband and I stayed October 10th and enjoyed our stay immensely. The staff really go the extra mile, we are quite picky and could not find anything to complain about here. The hotel is close to everything and the rooms are beautiful. I would definitely stay here again...loved it!

Overall excellent service! The staff was kind, caring, knowledgeable and most importantly friendly. Great facilities and located near the Charleston Market area which you can walk to from the hotel...very convenient in particular when you are shopping or hanging out at the restaurants in the area.
