Every employee we encountered during our four night stay was friendly, gracious , and accommodating. Upon check-in, we were offered a choice of floors to stay on. We chose the ninth, which is the top floor. From there, we had an exquisite view of the beach and the pier.
The housekeeping missed a few things during our stay (no new tissues on the last night, an un-washed coffee pot one day ) However, we were favorably impressed with the cleanliness of the place.
Heather, at the front desk , helped us extend our stay when we found out our return flight was in danger of being canceled. Indeed, all of the front desk staff were helpful with issues ranging from restaurant recommendations, making change, check-in/out.
We dined at Blu for breakfast two days, which we found to be a solid choice. There are at least a half-dozen interesting restaurants within easy walking distance, so one does not need to feel as being on house arrest as far as dining is concerned.
The property, while possessing some upscale touches, is a re-finished motel. That means outside entrances to the rooms and a non-climate controlled elevator (it was frosty during the evenings).
I recommend this place and would stay again. The hotel is an easy and scenic drive to Charleston, its airport, and all the attractions.
