It's a Residence Inn, and you get what you expect at one. This one as a plus has friendly staff--southern charm I suppose--and grits on the breakfast bar. (Having once stayed at a Residence Inn on the west coast, we thought the cooker holding the grits had rice, since, that's what they serve out there.) The weeknight manager's specials could easily take the place of dinner--hot dogs, pasta, etc, along with cold beer and red and white wines, all for free. The common areas are immaculate and nicely appointed, and the location is very convenient for those looking to get around the Charleston area.
The only real gripe (aside from having to pay $75 more than usual for the first night because of a PGA golf tournament wrapping up on Kiawah Island, but, that's business) is that the windows are paper thin, and, with a room facing the roads, you will sleep the night away to the noise of trucks downshifting, police sirens, and other gentle traffic sounds. The windows really need to be upgraded I think to drown out the street, as many of the rooms face either Route 517 (Isle of Palms Connector) or the cross-street--both of which are busy, even at night. If you're a light sleeper, request a room that faces the parking lot, perhaps.
Also, apparently the hotel offers no king-sized beds, even in the two-room suites, which is what we rented; there, I'm used to one room being a king, and the other being two doubles. Here, everything's a queen-sized. It's a minor complaint.
Overall it was a great property and I would recommend it for sure to anyone looking to be in Mount Pleasant, or near the city or beaches.
