“Not worth the money”
Reviewed April 12, 2011

Beware... the owners jack up the rates around any dates that vaguely resemble "spring break". I had to go to Charleston on business and got stuck paying $90+ for a very basic room that didn't even have a clock radio. Internet service was non-existant. When the motel was empty, it worked fine. As the motel filled up, the Wi-Fi signal would not stay connected. When I turned on the 80's looking relic TV to check the Weather Channel, it wasn't there. Neither were most other popular TV channels. The thin, scratchy towels would be fine if I wanted to wet-sand my car fenders. Creekside Lands Inn has potential. It's a nice older "motor inn" with nice grounds and a dock overlooking the marsh. It has lots of charm. The problem is that the clueless owners "Don't get it" ... Sure, they got my $90, but will I be a repeat customer? Not until I hear that the place has changed hands. I could deal with the problems mentioned above at $50, but $90? No thanks.

This hotel is about 10 minutes from downtown in a car and on a river setting and quite nice. You can even fish. The manager Penny is particularly nice and helpful. A really good value for the area.

I booked two rooms through Booking.com and cancelled the same day. I was charged for both rooms anyway. I've contacted the hotel and they insist that they issued a credit on 10/9. I suppose I'll get the same song and dance about my credit card company not processing the credit. I've filed a dispute and I have proof of my cancellation so I will eventually get my credit. However, please beware. They WILL take your money if they can get away with it.

We went down to Charleston for vacation, stayed at the Creekside Lands Inn for the first time and the VERY last time. The first room they put us in had no air, there was a fan in the room. When the fan was turned on it shocked the crap out of the one turning it on. They did switch our room and the air did work. The room was some what cozy. The hotel charged us for an extra night that we did not stay. It took close to a week to get the money back. Then a week after we were gone from the hotel they charged us another night. Now we have to wait a whole week again to collect that money back. The fishing from the pier was not all that great either! The pictures tell a thousand lies. We did not listen o the reviews and wish we HAD.

The Creekside Lands Inn would like to thank you for your comments. We sincerely apologize for your troubles during your stay in reference to the mentioned air condition, and believe we did rectify the situation by accomodating you into another room. As for the mentioned credit card charges, we understand your un-doubted frustration. After realizing it was an un-intentional clerk error, we worked as quickly as possible to refund your charges. We understand this is quite frustrating, however once a credit is issued it is up to the credit card company and/or bank to reverse those charges. The typical time-frame for this credit to issue is 3-4 business days. Again, we sincerely apologize for any inconveniences you may have experienced as we pride ourselves in outstanding customer service and a clean and comfortable environment.

Sincerely,
Management
Creekside Lands Inn

My husband and I live in New York and were looking for a nice place to vacation. Friends of ours in Florida suggested the Creekside Inn as a nice place to stay and we were both very pleased with our stay. The view from our room was lovely and our room was a great buy for the week. My husband could easily walk to the docks to crab and fish and downtown was only miles away! Downtown Charleston is a beautiful place to be and I loved walking through the markets, shopping, and all of the great restaurants. This was an awesome vacation and I look forward to coming back to the Creekside Inn for future vacations!
