“Nice, clean, comfortable, friendly...and a great value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We had a spacious and very clean room. Breakfast is included...a good variety of breakfast foods both hot and cold. The staff is very friendly, courteous, and helpful. The location is on the outskirts of Charleston......you will need a car to get around Charleston and environs if you choose to stay here. The location is accessible to highways that go into downtown Charleston.

Room was very clean & spacious. Breakfast included in cost & was plentiful. Only drawback, thought it was closer to downtown. Took approx. 15 mins. to get there. Would still plan a return stay, No noise from adjacent rooms.

Room Tip: Stayed on first floor, convenient to unload vehicle.

We enjoyed our stay. It was close to the old area of Charleston, the interstate, and the plantations. Accommodations were comfortable and adequate. Staff helpful. We would return to this Best Western in the future and recommend to friends.

Clean room with micro and fridge.Very comfy beds.Lovely pool which we didn't get to enjoy because of rainy weather. The breakfast was very good with not only waffles but blueberry waffles! Was good with sliced banana.Also had cereals,yogurt, danishes,etc.,and chocolate milk which I haven't enjoyed in a long time. Was on a busy street and had to turn right and u turn at times,but it worked. Enjoyed going to the thrift shops on the same street.Short drive to downtown.Would stay there again.

All I have to say is one word....horrible. We recently came in to Charleston for a 4 night stay from April 3-7th. We were given "the last 2 rooms" with our reservation. Our non smoking room reeked of smoke, and the other room smelled of Clorox bleach. The rooms were not even a 1 star in my opinion. The management sent up a nice man carrying an aerosol can of something to spray to mask the smell. We nicely thanked him but turned him away. The bathrooms were so pathetic. The management could not move us and we spent the next 2 hours searching online for anything available at another hotel. We were forced to sleep in this crummy hotel one night before checking out. I feel we should have been given some kind of compensation for the aggravation and inconvenience but nothing from management. We have stayed at many hotels in our lives but this was horrendous!
Luckily we were able to stay in a nice accommodation in Mount Pleasant for the rest of our stay.
We found the Sweetgrass on Tripadvisor. We usually have good luck but not this time....

Room Tip: Be forwarned, don't stay here!

Spent two nights at BW Sweetgrass Inn, and should have stayed a 3rd for another day in Charleston. Our stay was fine. Nicely maintained facility. Friendly staff. Even met a couple in Naples, Fla., our destination, whom stop every year at Sweetgrass Inn to enjoy Charleston. No problem recommending this facility to families and friends both visiting area and/or traveling Rt. 95 to other destinations.

Room Tip: We stayed on lower level in building behind front structure facing busy highway, but heard little no...

My title says it all. Arrived on a very early flight. Unfortunately they were unable to get me in early. BUT, instead of putting me in the room I was forced into with Princeline, they gave me an upgraded room to accommodate my adult son who I was down there visiting.

This is the fourth time I have stayed with them, and the only complaint I had was a slow draining tub. (And the pool was ice cold, but it was the beginning of April. Not within their control.) If you are looking for a minimal fuss, CLEAN and friendly place to lay your head, this is the place.
