the room was clean and comfortable. The beds were soft and had three soft comfy pillows on them. the decore seemed new. It had a decent continental breakfast with waffels, yogurt, coffee(the muffins were stale)
and juice. I didn't see any riff raff hanging around outside and it was quiet at night. I did hear someone had thier cell phone stolen out of thier car, but no one bothered my car. The staff was helpful and courteous.

I think $71 is too much if you are just passing through and need a place
to sleep for 8 hours, but if you plan on staying for a few days it is perfect.

We were allowed to leave our car in the parking lot while we went on a cruise and the shuttle will drive us to the port for $10. that seems like it
will be less stressfull then trying to find the port.

Room Tip: get a room closer to the office or you will be doing a lot of walking back and forth.

I planed a trip to Charleston to visit my brother, every time i stay at his house i end up getting sick. I decided to stay at a hotel this trip so i stayed about a few miles away from his house at The Best Western on Savahana hwy. I got a great rate and injoyed my stay. The room was larger than i expected and the bed was a pleasur to sleep on. The employees were very nice and helpfull. Had to have some work done on my vehicle befor we left. i thought we weren't going to make the checkout time so i checked with the front desk and they advised me it wouldn't be a problem exceeding the checkout time.

Thank you!

Kudos to Ms. Monique Brown and her wonderful new employee, Ms. Ayesha Garrett! How grand to find the service of a five star in the trappings of of modestly priced, but very comfortable motel. I needed some help in finding a store open for particulars late at night. I called the front desk and asked where I might go...Ms. Garrett said she would phone a few shops to see what was closest and open and ring me back. So she did! Easy as pie! So gracious and helpful. One could spend more, but why! Compliments compliments to you!

We have stayed at this motel several times in the past two years and I can say that it has been a very good experience for us. The staff has been very attentive to all of our needs and very friendly. We will return.

After spending 29 hours travelling from Australia it was great to be greeted by such a friendly receptionist. She was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. Very much appreciated. The room was clean and there was plenty of space. The location was great with many things nearby and easy to get to.
