Background- family of four with two small children, basis for booking was location, the fact that we had a kitchen, two rooms and price. This hotel was not what I consider to be a hotel at all. The hotel should be advertised as a motel.
Negatives- The limited housekeeping is not very good. Even when you need something you have to do it yourself. For example I needed our kitchen trash removed I had to remove the bag and get a new bag from the housekeeper. No fresh towels given during a five day stay until we asked for it, no beds being made etc. The pool is the size of a bath tub and not very clean. The hotel common areas are so so cleanliness-wise. The elevator floors were always dirty, the lobby area is nice but when you walk to your room you pass the laundry housekeeping area and door to that always open. I hardly want to see laundry in my own home let alone on my vacation.
Positives-The rooms are fairly clean and there are no bed bug incidents either. The continental breakfast is good, the staff is friendly and helpful, something to snack on in the lobby at 5pm each day, good location convenient to Sullivan's, Isle of Palms and downtown, cute little pond in the back with a nice little patio that had turtles which my kids loved but beyond that, it's nothing more than a room that you will be keeping up yourself. We loved having a kitchen but next time we head down, we will do the new Hampton inn with kitchenettes as that hotel is newer and cleaner.
