Not only was I able to sleep like a baby in the comfortable rooms, but the location was perfect! Breakfast was complimentary and super yummy. I was able to stay in a newly renovated room and it was gorgeous. Everyone that worked there was so friendly. I highly recommend this property for anyone coming to Charleston. I can't wait to...

Great hotel. Allowed for a late check in due to our flights being delayed. Very clean and comfortable. Only con is it is a $20 cab ride from the airport. No shuttle provided. They also allow a 12:00 check out which is nice. Was only there for a short night stay.

For our holiday visit to beautiful Charleston we opted to stay here at about half the cost of a motel in the historic downtown. Rental car pick up at airport seamless and 20 Minutes later we were here! In the morning about 20 Minutes for the 3.5 odd miles to historic downtown. Spent an excellent morning on a free walking...

There are three restaurants which are an easy walk from this hotel. Our room was comfortable and all the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful.

Easy to find, good non-downtown location. Comfortable beds. Expectations for a Holiday Inn Express property were met. Travel to downtown can be slowed significantly by traffic if traveling at rush hour. Otherwise, only a 15 min drive. Slow elevators, hampered by some property improvements currently going on (contractors using only elevator to move trash and supplies). Friendly front desk staff...

We came here as evacuees from Hurricane Matthew. The storm left the hotel without TV or any light in the elevator. Not their fault, but other places had service. Carpets a bit ratty in bedroom. Pleasant staff, location on rt 17 just off 526 a plus.

Thank you for your feedback. Yes indeed, Hurricane Matthew came through Charleston and our community was certainly affected. Our hotel did lose power for a few days, and after the power came back on, it was another day or so before the work crews in the area were able to restore our cable television and internet service.
