Budget Host Inn Charleston
Ranked #13 of 23 Hotels in Charleston
Reviewed July 2, 2013

My husband and I stayed here on our visit to Charleston last weekend. Very impressed with the cleanliness, quietness and comfort of our room and bath, not to mention the view of the Kanawha River. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room price was very, very attractive and appreciated. Liked it so much, we've made reservations to stay here in September when we travel back from South Carolina for a family reunion. So, the Inn may not have all of the amenities like your high dollar lodgings, but who cares???? It's safe, comfortable and clean. Biscuits and pizza are within a stone's throw. Thanks, Budget Host Inn of Charleston WV.

We staying in two Budget Host Inns on our trip to Myrtle Beach (there and back), both were chosen because of reviews on Tripadvisor. I've got to say, I was so impressed by the value of both properties. For stopovers, especially with an infant, all you want is something clean and affordable and this is what you will get. Immaculate rooms. The Charleston property also has a nice view of the river and mountains. The owner of Charleston BHI wasn't as friendly as his peer down in Wytheville, but still obviously cares about his business and maintaining his property for his customers. The only thing I would say that was a minor inconvenience, would be the big production it is to get to the main strip where all the restaurants and gas stations are, at least according to Google maps.

Room Tip: The river view is nice.

My boyfriend and I are staying at this hotel and even with changing rooms found this place to be very clean with a river view that is simply beautiful! And the tugboats going by are an added plus The staff here go out of their way to make your stay nice. Clean towels and beds. Cameras around the property for safety. And the parking lot and grounds kept neat and trash free. We would highly recommend this hotel. And will continue to stay here as long as the job requires. You won't find a better value anywhere else in Charleston.

This little inn is clean, inexpensive, and you get a view of the water traffic on the Kanawa River to boot (ask for a waterfront room). All of the rooms have been remodled. The television has a good number channels and reception is clear. The hot water is hot and instant with good pressure. The rooms have refigerators. The Anchor Inn bar and restaurant is next door.

Motel is right on the river, you could fish from your room! Room was clean and smelled good. There is an attached restaurant / bar. Home made food was real good, folks are nice. We travel 77 from MI to Fl several times a year this is the first time I have felt compelled to write a motel review. Even my wife thought it was good! I'm not giving it 5 stars as compared to a high priced hotel but for what it is we are going to keep this one in mind on our next trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the river side

We also stayed here during the power outage. We didn't pay the high price like you though. Our online rate was around $50. The manager did not handle things appropriately, i agree. However they were nice enough people. It wasn't his fault that the power went out. We slept with the window open since we had no A/C. seemed like a safe area. It is next to a busy road that is noisy though. The rooms have a microwave and fridge.

Room Tip: get far away from the road if that is possible. The road is noisy/busy.
