Wonderful Vacation Destination

Pros: The room was spacious, clean & comfortable. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, they answered all of our questions.
The Church Street Inn in Charleston SC., is located in the Historic District and is conveniently located to the most visited locations. We were able to use the valet parking and never used are car again until we left. Everything is easily within walking distance or by using the Free Bus system that Charleston has. Everyone in the hotel as well as the surrounding business's are friendly and helpful. We were out walking around at 10:00 at night and we never once felt any sense of insecurity. Very friendly town.

Weekend get away

Staff at check in not helpful. Couldn't be bothered....kept complaining about how busy they were. Seemed to be inconvenienced every time you asked a question. Charged for valet parking but only available to get your car from 8am to 8pm....the other 12 hours, you have to find your car and get it yourself. Check out was the same. Staff complained they were too busy. When we asked them to get our car for a particular time, they wouldn't, and told us to just ask when we were ready to leave. When it was time to leave and we asked to get our car, we were told they were busy since 31 people were checking out and that we would have to wait. Took 30 minutes to get our car and while we waited, they piled our luggage in the streets of Charleston outside the hotel until our car arrived. When they cleaned the room, they didn't bother putting away the foldaway bed, and left it as a bed but didn't bother making the bed and I guess left it for us to do? Understaffed to handle their clients. Best part of the hotel is location, otherwise a two star at best.

Great hotel! Perfect location, friendly staff, and a sizable room for the price.

Pros: Close restaurants
Only thing is a few lightbulbs were out or the light switches didn't work. Otherwise, it was perfect. The staff were incredibly friendly. Loved staying there and will probably stay there again.

Beautiful Place to Stay

I especially enjoyed the staff. The place was very clean and the kitchen and 1/2 bath were a feature I did not expect. Close to great restaurants and entertainment. What a special place to stay. We will be back for sure. J. Petralia, Long Island, NY

Hotel review

This was my first trip to Charleston, SC and I wanted a hotel that was located near everything. This hotel is in a great location. I walked almost everywhere. The staff was very friendly and the hotel very clean. The two story room was a pleasant change in hotel rooms (along with the full kitchen). I will stay at this hotel the next time I visit Charleston. Wonderful hotel for the location, price and friendliness of staff!!!
