“really impressed”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

family member had an emergency visit to CAMC - so a bunch of us descended on Charleston. WV. First night in town was the night before the state high school track meet - hats off to the night person at the Holiday Inn Express in Belle (which was booked up) for helping us find a room at the downtown Best Western (which was great by the way) - Day 2 we moved to So. Charleston Holiday Inn Express because we wanted to get all the family in the same hotel. This hotel allows pets and still has smoking rooms - things that made several family members very happy.
- The hotel decor is surprisingly hip and rooms were spotless and equally hip. Since we had someone in the hospital we were given a great rate. How cool is that? Yes... there are train tracks... which means there's an occasional train - but we really didn't notice. Rooms were quiet and comfortable. Beds were great. I travel quite a bit with work and walked away impressed with the hotel and the hospitality of the staff (West Virginia folks are just possibly the friendliest, most helpful people you're going to meet anywhere - I rate them 5 stars) - The restaurant was actually quite good as well, which is a good thing, not a whole lot of options close by. Ok Mexican next door and pretty good Vietnamese 6 or 8 blocks away (but no late hours there)
Take a few minutes and check the downtown indian mound out. It's worth it.

TIP - LOOK FOR THE WINGATE INN SIGN - the hotel sets back away from the little downtown... like 5 or 6 blocks behind the indian mound - next to the Wingate Inn.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the tracks. Ask for an upgrade to a king/suite.

We stayed for one night while driving though town, so I cannot speak to the hotel's location. But I can speak to the hotel itself...very nicely decorated and furnished in the lobby and restaurant area. That area was very modern; not trendy like some places that look like their furniture will go out if style in a week, though.
The room (king bed) was a little on the small side, but had everything we needed, including a refrigerator/freezer.
The lobby and restaurant had the swanky feel of more upscale boutique hotels (aloft, etc.) but was still very comfortable. We would stay here again without hesitation, and would recommend it for anyone staying in Charleston.

During our week stay in Charleston, WV we had an amazing experience with Holiday Inn & Suites. The lobby and pool area are absolutely gorgeous, and the restaurant/lounge is extremely clean with great food and reasonable prices. ALL staff members are very accommodating and very friendly!

The staff, price & all the little extras made my business trip for 4 a bit more like a vacation! From the pool to the bar this place really had it all. I am not one to wonder out in strange places so I am usually suck ordering pizza or take out which is not my idea of fun. To be able to stay & play all in one location is really important to me, so thanks! I will be back!

Attended a workshop here and found the renovations very well done. It had a very nice indoor pool and spa, work-out room, and large meeting and dining rooms. Staff were friendly and helpful. Lobby had an office area with computers, nice sitting areas, and large televisions. The location was close to many activities, food, and shopping options right off the interstate. I would recommend staying here again if need to be in the area.

Nice clean, very comfortable room. Not having to hunt supper for a one night stay is awesome. Nice pool and jacuzzi. Good breakfast. Not the best location, but would definately stay here again. Desk attendants were also very helpful and nice.

We were attracted by the very reasonable $25 pet charge, and were delighted by the size of the suite. There was a 4 seat kitchen table, a full size refrigerator and adequately stocked kitchen (with pots, pans, plates, etc). The new modern-style furniture, 2 flat screen TVs with HD, 2 wired ports with 5 download and 1.5 up (wireless was 300k up), and great king size master bed was a nice surprise. The only negatives was the train tracks across the street (a train woke me up during the night) and the birds nesting outside our window (pretty noisy at 6:30am). The noon checkout and delicious free breakfast (it really was good!) are a real plus. We learned the property went through a $10 million renovation a year ago. It really shows.
