This was a place chosen just to sleep for the night while passing through on a long road trip. I chose it due to the high recommendations on Trip Advisor, but now, I cannot understand how they have gotten the rating they have. The location is a stone's throw from the interstate, and the noise from the road is very loud, even in the rooms. The hotel is dark (we arrived at night) and dirty. It was packed and if we had not had reservations, there would not have been a room available. This also means there was NO PARKING anywhere near the room we had, and we had to walk a long way in the dark in a sketchy-seeming area to get to our room. The room was smelly and dingy, and the beds were VERY uncomfortable. Between the hard beds and the noise, the main point of our stay (sleep in the first leg of a road trip) was nullified. Also this whole area of Charleston has a bad smell, maybe because of nearby industry. This was evident the next morning when we dined at a nearby restaurant for breakfast (hotel does not provide even a basic breakfast). I know it is a budget hotel, but we stayed at several hotels on this trip that were priced less than this one, and they were MUCH better. This hotel is rated much higher here than it deserves to be.
