Excellent stay minus parking

Pros: Breakfast options were very nutritious, yummy & available from 6am until 10am. Hotel was extremely peaceful @ all hours.
Cons: Parking was a huge issue. If you come in after 10pm you are not guaranteed a spot. Parking lot is shared with another hotel on the premises.
Location: Busy location/ Heavy truck traffic. No attractions within walking distance. Civic Ctr/ Town Center 15 + mins w/ lots of construction and confusion.
I had an excellent stay no complaints outside of parking issues.

Cons: Make sure there are at least two regular coffee (caffeinated) packs available in the room. Bathroom faucet fixtures appeared about to fall apart.
Location: Just passing through.
Mattress was hard, sheets were nappy (well worn). Not priced accordingly.

Good hotel coming back home from vacation.

Hotel was nice, we requested 2 non smoking rooms, clearly this hotel doesn't enforce this as we were put in a hallway which smelt of smoke, told the front desk and they said they would address the issue. The next morning it again smelt of smoke so we gave up on telling them as it clearly didn't help the first time. As for the breakfast it is your average hotel breakfast, nothing fancy or special. However I did like the fact that they had their pancake machine up and running for a late night snack. Overall would recommend this hotel, just make sure to call and check to see that you aren't put where it smells like smoke even though it's a non smoking hotel.

Clean, convenient, reasonable.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
This was a quick stop on a long trip. Staff friendly and checkin took about 30 seconds! Very clean and quiet. No frills but a good choice for our family of 6.

Excellent room for the price.

For around a * bucks, this was one of the most comfortable hotel stays I have had in Charleston. The room was spacious with 2 beds, couch, desk, microwave, and refrigerator. Although the hotel is not new, it has been recently remodeled. The indoor pool and hot tub were both clean and attractive. The beds were quite comfortable. I would definitely stay again.

A nice hotel for a quick visit

As a former resident of Charleston, this hotel is in a fantastic location and an enjoyable time while I was there. The staff was super friendly and my room was very comfortable. There was little outside noise or interruption. This is a hotel I would recommend for more than just a stopover on a trip through Charleston, though. It's a little pricey and has all the amenities that I associate with a vacation. The only thing I found a bit frustrating was that I went down to get breakfast to bring back up to my room and the cleaning staff was already making its rounds at 8AM. I wasn't in a big hurry to leave and check out is supposed to cut-off at noon. I had to place my "Do Not Disturb" sign on my door handle in order to ensure the staff would leave me in peace. I also wasn't very impressed with the breakfast choices. I know continental breakfasts aren't supposed to pull out all the stops, but I've had better at lesser hotels.

Good Value, clean rooms and good basic services

This hotel is a great value if what you are looking for is a no-frills, safe, clean environment to spend the night and go elsewhere during the day. The service staff is professional, courteous and prompt. We would definately stay here again.
