This hotel had great reviews so we decided to try it out on a recent trip to Charleston. The friendly front desk staff, the very clean rooms, comfortable beds and decent breakfast made this an excellent stay. I would definitely go back.

Just took Highway 17 into the downtown area to explore Charleston. We didn't want to pay the downtown prices and this was perfect for us....

Hotel rates in historic Charleston were $279+++ for Columbus Day weekend. This hotel was about $100 cheaper per night. The cab ride into the city was about $15 and 10 minutes. I literally saved hundreds of dollars during my long weekend in Charleston by staying here. The room works. It's basic... it's not new.... it's not super fancy. But it...

We really enjoyed this hotel during our stay in Charleston, SC. It was priced very reasonable compared to other hotels nearby. The location is a little ways away from downtown historic Charleston but we had no issues getting around. Its about a $5-$7 Uber/Lyft trip to the city center. The rooms were very clean although a little small. We would...

Ok its out of town but at least its quiet. Its modern, everything worked well and the lady on the desk was great she gave us all the info we needed. A car is needed to get downtown from here its sort of a pitstop on the highway.
