“Weekend Getaway at the Best Western Sweetgrass”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

The staff at the Best Western Sweetgrass are friendly, helpful and efficient. The property and rooms are well-maintained and clean with beautiful landscaping and comfy beds!
I would recommend this property to anyone looking for family oriented accomodations at a fair price. Hats off to the staff at Best Westen Sweetgrass, thanks for your professional representation of your property and company!****

Room Tip: "King sweet is cozy and accomodating"

I stayed at this Best Western in April of 2012 for a family member's funeral and sadly had to return in October 2012 for another family members funeral. But on both stays i was extremely satisfied, the front desk agents are always very pleasant and eager to assist you in anyway possible. One my last visit, i had a minor issue nothing worth mentioning however the staff and management took care of it instantly!! I do hope to visit Charleston on a more pleasant note and not for a funeral and enjoy the beautiful city and trust me Sweet Grass BW will be my stop. Great job everyone.

Room Tip: I like ground floors. and i had a pool view.

Our room was in the back building and very quiet. Very spacious room. The refrigerator worked well. The front desk was very friendly. We used the fitness room. Good breakfast. Internet ok, but not very fast.

My wife and daughter are staying at the BW now for a brief two night visit with my older daughter who lives on James Island. We have stayed here several times and have always been happy with the property and the value we received. The rooms are fine, nothing fancy. It is obvious that the management works very hard to maintain this property. The grounds are well maintained, including the pool that we use in the summer. The location is perfect for visiting our daughter's house or a quick trip downtown. The staff, from the front desk, to the cleaners, to the maintenance workers are very friendly and accommodating. Look forward to our next visit in January.

Stayed outside city to save money. Conveniently located but on busy Hwy 17. There must be two types of rooms available - nice ones for those who must have paid full price who have raved about the motel and the ones like I paid for from a travel bidding site. Bed very comfortable, room smelled real musty, bathroom needs to be gutted and fixtures replaced. rectangular shaped toilet with an oval seat on it which didn't cover the rim. Looked as some rooms were rented to people who lived there. Coffee pot was not cleaned as of day three when I checked out. Found one dead bug and then killed one as it ran across the carpet. I have stayed in nicer budget motels. And the check in clerk got in a dig about the website through which I made my reservation. Didn't check the breakfast buffet. Room was on the backside of the property and was very quiet. Three star rating is generous.

We went to tour Charleston but did not want to stay right in the downtown area. This hotel was very convenient. The staff were very helpful but the facility was not up to standard. We had two sinks, one in the bathroom itself and one outside the bath. This second sink backed up frequently was left nasty stuff in the sink. We had a frig and microwave in the room. Unfortunately, the frig was on only when a particular lamp switch was on. No sign to let you know. We went to a lovely dinner, brought back seafood and put it in the frig (which was cold because we left the appropriate lamp on. We turned off the lamp at bedtime. Off went the frig. We had to throw the food away. We stayed three nights. On the third day, we left a wake-up call for 6:30 AM. Fortunately, we woke up at 7:00! No call. The breakfast was good and the maps and directions to places to see were excellent.

I am sorry that this guest to experience anything less than our best. I will be making this review the subject of an upcoming training session. It is often not a big thing that impacts a guest's stay but a multitude of little things. Thank you for bringing these little things to our attention.

Stayed there for one night. The BW is directly located at Savannah Highway so it's partly a bit noisy, but still ok. The room was clean, well-furnished and had no moldy smell, which is quite often a problem in Hotels. Free parking, free WiFi, continental breakfast is included (nothing special but fine). They have a small pool area, which they share with the Sleep-Inn Hotel next door. The rates are reasonable but according to my opinion a little overpriced.
And one more very important thing: They have the kindliest staff I've ever talked to. Really great!
I travelled alone and felt very safe in this Hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in one of the rear buildings (quieter)
