Fairfield Inn & Suites Charleston North/Ashley Phosphate
Ranked #18 of 60 Hotels in North Charleston
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 11, 2012

I work as a travel agent, and I recently had a group of about fifty 9th grade students who traveled to Charleston, SC for a three-day weekend. We stayed at the Comfort Suites in N. Charleston. The manager of the property, Darrin, was very easy to work with...very accommodating for the group's needs and was very prompt in responding to questions/emails which made the planning much easier and less stressful. The staff who worked the desk...morning, day and evening...were all very helpful, pleasant and interested in making sure the group's needs were met.
The property has an outdoor pool. B'fast is pretty much the standard continental fare-- hot waffles (although I wish there had been 2 machines instead of one to help move the group along), biscuits, eggs, sausage/bacon, cereal, danish/muffins, juice, milk and coffee. The staff who worked in the b'fast area worked very hard to keep things restocked and were very pleasant. The juice machine had issues to start out both mornings, but they worked fast to fix it. There is a manager's reception during the weeknights, but we did not partake with the school group being present of course.
The property is located just off the main drag and has a side street with a turn around area which makes it easier for charter buses and 18-wheelers to turn around then have a place on the street to park without obstructing traffic.
I highly recommend getting one of the king suites with the jacuzzi (2-person) in the room. Very nice and very enjoyable!
Only negatives-- the juice machine issue (although it was more of a brief inconvenience than anything) and the ice machine on floor 3 was down for the count. Otherwise, the stay was a good one and I will bring a group here again in the future.

Room Tip: Front or back, doesn't matter, but the king jacuzzi rooms are great and I highly recommend them.

We are happy to hear that your recent group's stay with us met your expectations! We second the fact that Darrin is great when it comes to working with groups and showing the level of hospitality that we expect from all of our staff here at the Comfort Suites. While we love to hear the positive notes on your stay, we also appreciate the negatives as it helps us correct and adjust to continue pleasing our guests. Both issues that you mentioned in your review have been fully resolved and we thank you again for bringing those to our attention. We hope to have you and your future groups back with us at Comfort Suites North Charleston!

This is a wonderful hotel ! They had free alcoholic beverages for their guests in the evenings !! The rooms were very nice and comfortable and the room cost was very good too. There are places to eat nearby that are very good and you can walk to them if you wanted to. The staff is very friendly and informative.

I am in the Charleston area several days a year. I have stayed at different hotels and believe this to be the best deal. Good spacious rooms and a very good breakfast in spacious area. Never had a problem. Very friendly staff members.

Room Tip: Have been on four different floors in King, Queen and 2 Double beds. All very nice

This was one of the "Top Secret" hotels for Charleston, SC. I booked it at a great rate and the hotel was just what we needed (a place to spend the night before we left on our cruise for the next day). The hot breakfast was more than expected and the omelet was particularly yummy!

We were in Charleston to see our niece and her Marine husband depart to Japan for three years. We had no idea about where to stay, but the reviews sounded good for the Comfort Suites of North Charleston.
Our check in was easy, the rooms were fantastic and very roomy, the breakfast buffet was one of the best I have ever had.
So, this place gets 5 STARS from our family!!!! If we have the occasion to go back to North Charleston, this will be our pick.

I was not expecting to have such a nice stay at this hotel. It was easy to get in and out with the interstate so close. The hotel was very clean and neat and the rooms were better than most where I have stayed. There are not too many places to eat real close but there are some within a 10 minute drive. The staff was pleasant and the price is right. I recommended this hotel to a co-worker and he is staying there this week. If he has any other thoughts I will share.

My fiancé and I stayed here during the family circle cup tennis tournament that takes place on Daniel Island. The hotel is just up from I526 so it provides easy access over to Daniel Isand via that interstate. The staff at this hotel was awesome! We felt as if we lived there with them to service every need. When coming back to Charleston, we will stay here for the affordable prices and easy access to all tourist spots in the greater charleston area!

In addition to easy access for that event, we feel we offer a great location in terms of anything you would like to do in the Charleston area whether it be touring nearby plantations or making the 15 minute trip downtown for local dining and historic adventures.
