Had a great time visiting Charleston and surrounding islands. The Palms hotel is ocean front with its own beach access. Clean and size of room is perfect considering the little time we actually spent inside of it (we were touring a lot and sitting on the beach). Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast was included, so that helped. Located...

Pretty good motel for the money! The location is fantastic and can't be beat. The negative comments are mostly from people expecting a 5 star motel. If you want a 5-star motel then pay 400+ bucks and stay in a five star motel. The Palms is older, but pretty clean and everything worked fine. No issues at all and the...

If you really want to relax, this is the place. The hotel needs some updating but other than that we really had a great time. The staff was very helpful. Most places are within walking distance. The hotel is not too far from Charleston. Look forward to going back next year.

Had a fantastic experience at this hotel...was visiting for business, and the office manager and staff were so helpful.

Had a great room that overlooked the beach! Beach was great and very shallow for a long ways out and that was great since we were visiting with family with children ranging from age 5 to 12. Since Isle of Palms is a smaller community this made it much more enjoyable for all of us. Really had a nice time...

First impression - this hotel is old and could use some updating. Our first night we stayed in an inside room with no windows to the outside. Not something I prefer at all. We notified management that we wanted a different room and they were very pleasant and offered us another room for the following two nights of our stay....

My boyfriend and I stayed a night here back in May. The location is great. We could see the beach from our balcony, and walking to the beach was a breeze.

It's not a 5-star resort by anyone's definition, but the value, views and location make a stay at The Palms Oceanfront Hotel a 5-star experience. It's right on the beach. I think we paid a little extra to get a beach view room, and it's well worth it! No, you probably won't spend a lot of time in your room,...
