Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express was great! We were greeted by Nicole and Leila who made sure we had everything in place for our stay. Their great customer service set us up for a great long weekend in Charleston!

Being greeted by 'Nicole' at Reception was the beginning of a great night's stay! She showed us nearby locations to get something to eat and shop. Our room was excellent - I like it to be very warm and the heater as well as the shower worked great (often in hotels they don't). Breakfast was very good even offering omelettes...

We chose this hotel as it was near to friends that we were visiting. We had stayed here MANY years ago and that stay was not pleasant, but we tried again as we saw it was undergoing a renovation. As a priority club member we were given one of the new rooms. Although the rooms are on the small size,...

This was the best Hotel I have ever stayed in. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. Sherry was the best front desk personnel there could be. It was clean, quiet, friendly and a great breakfast spread! Thanks for a great stay!

The rooms that have been remodeled are BEAUTIFUL! The staff is all friendly. Location is great. And the park and cruise package is one of the best prices in town.

I stayed here for two nights over the weekend. This property is located a solid 15-20 minutes from the airport and about 20 minutes from historic Charleston. Including the nightly add-on tax/room fees, it was OVER $225 a night for a basic Holiday Inn Express room (whole property under renovation at the time) in a less-than-prime location along a main...

They are under Renovation when we stayed and if you are a late sleeper you will not sleep past 900 AM. Once complete it will be great and I will definitely stay here again. The hot breakfast served is above average with many selections. The Keurig coffeemaker, refrigerator, & microwave in room is a definite plus.

Thank you for your comments. We are 6.3 miles from the downtown Historic District and from the Plantation District, which is an easy 15 minute drive. That short drive can save you hundreds of dollars over the downtown hotels though, so it is well worth it! Glad to hear that you found our front desk staff to be so accommodating!...

When we booked our room,no one told us that the place was under construction. And BAM! 9:00A.M. the drills,saws & hammers start!The noise was all around us. Loud and obnoxious! The hotel was clean & well stocked with toiletries,but sure wish SOMEONE would have told us at booking, that construction was going on.
