“Good place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Typical Hampton Inn. Nothing special but nothing wrong. We arrived late on sunday evening and the clerk immediately provided us with a list of restaurants that were still open. The hotel isn't exactly in downtown but you can easily walk there - it's about a ten minutes walk.

All areas of the hotel are kept in clean, well maintained condition. Continental Breakfast is so much more than the usual bagel and coffee. Staff members are helpful and friendly. Rooms are well maintained for guest's every need.

This hotel is extremely busy, at least while I was there. Check-in and check-out seemed to be constant and very efficient. It is a smaller Hampton but I found the room large and comfortable. The staff were efficient and friendly despite the number of guests. Breakfast was very busy but I did not have to wait for food or struggle with a place to sit. The hotel is located next to a very busy highway but I did not hear road noise at all. Being next to an elevated freeway and one way streets, it can be a challenge to navigate but after one turn on the block you figure it out. The convention center is within walking distance but I decided to drive due to the summer heat. I parked in the mall parking away and found a great place to eat in the mall. Comfortable, good price, good sleep, good breakfast. No problems.

This is the first time I have ever felt like the trip advisor reviews were a little off for us! This is by far the smallest hotel room I have stayed in, with two beds! The hotel is very clean, front lobby is nice, staff checked us in right away...no problems there! I think that is where my great expectations end. The room had a strange smell....I still can't really get over the size of the room! We arrived in the evening just to stay overnight on our way traveling to NC from Michigan so it was fine for that, but I wouldn't make any plans to stay at this particular hotel again. I believe the slight odor made me feel like the rest of the room wasn't as clean as I would have liked, but still not the worse. This particular hotel was not to our liking.

My family and I have stayed at the Hampton Inn Charleston on many occasions for both business and leisure. The rooms are always clean and the service is wonderful. There has always been a nice breakfast. We are usually tired upon arrival and if we haven't eaten dinner, we usually order food for delivery from one of the many area restaurants that deliver. Hotel is very easy to get to from the interstate.

While traveling with the family we stopped here overnight and were very pleased with the hotel. The indoor pool was nice, the staff was very friendly and accommodating the amenities were great. The breakfast was typical fare but nice, clean and well organized. The dining area was clean and well maintained. The beds were very comfortable. Note: this hotel is located in the downtown area of this city so most of the streets are one way, so they require some navigating if you are going to get some dinner in town. The hotel desk staff was very helpful in finding places to eat and how to get from point A to point B. If you are in the area anyway this is a nice place to stay. There is Wifi available and easy to log in to.

Room Tip: Ask about military discount.

Our stay was wonderful; the front desk staff is the nicest I have encountered in a long time. They saw that I was tired upon arrival and offered the shuttle to the mall as a means of getting our dinner without driving in an unfamiliar locale. They were friendly and thoughtful. The room was clean and comfortable I recommend this Hampton HIGHLY.
