My husband had to be on business in Charleston for a week, so we decided to go down a day early and stay on our own. I booked the Comfort Suites North Charleston because of the reasonable price and great TripAdvisor reviews.
Let me point out the positives before I start on negative.
-The lobby and breakfast area are both very attractive and clean.
-I love that the entire hotel is smoke free
-Location is great---right of I26
-Our king size room had a small microwave and fridge which was great.
-Upon entering, the comforter was lumpy and rumpled. As if someone had been laying on it. (see picture)
-Room smells like Carpet Fresh. UGH. Makes me feel like they are covering up something I don't want to know about.
-The room is average, maybe slightly below. Furniture is old and worn. The carpet had large stains.
-Bed sheets had many hairs on them. YUCK
-Large entry foyer of wasted space.
-The remote control only changes channels. The volume and power had to be adjusted on the TV.
-TV itself is an old tube style television.
-Internet is VERY slow, averaging between 18 and 36 mbps.
Overall, I'm not saying this was a horrible hotel. Just not nearly as nice as expected for the price range and other reviews. For the rest of our trip we will be staying in another hotel in the downtown, historic district which is the same price. Hopefully, I will have a more positive review from that property.
