Stayed here two nights on a 2week holiday....it certainly is a long way from downtown and you need to get a taxi...uber seems the best choice.The hotel was reasonably priced and clean and breakfast was included.we managed to use the pool which was fine on a hot southern day.

I traveled to Charleston because my brother was having a serious operation at MUSC. I wanted to be there for him, and my sister-in-law said that this hotel offered special rates for people with loved ones at MUSC. She mentioned $79, and a microwave and refrigerator. The fridge and microwave were important to me, because I am currently on Nutrisystem,...

Curious staff is the only reason it is two stars instead of 1. Housekeeping didn't change out shampoo/conditioner/mouthwash bottles in restroom. Shower didn't function properly and I slipped and fell against the toilet. The safe in the hotel locked with my laptop and values inside and wouldn't open. First thing in the morning two maintenance men are drilling through the...

We came down for our 10 year anniversary. The staff was great, very clean and budget friendly. Just minutes from downtown and 15 min to Folly Beach. Several fast food restaurants within walking distance from the hotel.

We stayed here because they offered suites with two bedrooms. The staff was amazing... From check in, to cleaning, to outdoor care, everyone was super nice and so friendly with our little boy. They allowed us to check in 3 hours early so he could nap and offered us cereal and milk for a snack for him later that night...

Let me start off by saying that my review is based on staying on the first floor in a pet friendly room (room 104). The first floor is creepy. The rooms are down the hall from housekeeping, and it is just feels uncomfortable the moment you walk down the hall. The room itself was clean, and the bathroom is updated....
