“The Perfect Getaway...right here in town!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised at every turn about this little motel. Pete was very nice and so helpful! And the motel office had such a wonderful fragrance! My room faced the river which eliminated most traffic sounds. They have a lovely little porch that overlooks the river where you can sit and meditate. The room was very clean and the bed was pleasantly comfortable. I enjoyed my stay immensely! I plan to return very soon.

Average priced and very small motel. Location somewhat outside of Charleston, but close to I 77 and overlooks a river. No frills, room was small and could use an update, but it was very clean. Great place for a one night stay.

Very friendly and nice staff. It was a wonderful price for the room, and had a beautiful look over the river. It was a good distance away from Charleston, and the room was clean and had everything we needed. We would stay again!

A perfect no frills place to sleep. Ask for a room facing the river and wake up to birds singing and fantastic scenery. Room smells smokey. Water fluctuates in temp. No frills. Three steps to the parking space. Free wifi. For the price I could stay two nights for the price of one. For my tastes ... Wifi ... Easy in n out ... Very quiet ... Incredible nature views ... Great sleep ... This is a perfect place to stay and a bargain to boot.

On the lower end of our typical hotel choices (which are pretty low end :)), but it was a great value! It was a hotel with NO frills, but was clean, convenient, and cheap. It's a 10-15 min drive from downtown Charleston, where we had dinner. I probably wouldn't stay at this hotel alone or as a vacation base, but it was fine for our purposes.

My husband and I spent 2 nights in this motel on our stay in Charleston. The premises were well maintained, the staff very friendly, the room very clean, only the matress was very hard. The only downfall was that a family with kids stayed next door and the kids were screaming and banging in that room until 2:00am in the morning and were awake and screaming again by 7:00am in front of our door. But this is more the parents responsibility and not the motel. Otherwise the river view was very pretty and we experienced also a thunderstorm with dollar size hail coming out of nowhere. All in all it was a adventures stay. For staying only a couple nights, I refer this motel to everyone with a low budget.

Room Tip: Take a room with the river view. Also make sure you don't have a family with more than one kid n...
