Spacious room and bath, great location

Perfect location to the College of Charleston. Room was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. Be prepared to pay $11 for parking. There is also no complementary breakfast - but there is plenty of coffee in the room.

Fair for the price, but expected more

Good price, great location. Located in the heart of Charleston -- easy access to great restaurants and bars on upper King St. and shopping areas. Staff consistently greeted upon arrival and departure. Overall, hotel is clean and fairly comfortable, however the guest rooms could use some love and attention to detail (wallpaper border peeling in areas, dust on baseboards and vents). The room was in need of a deep clean. Dusty, dusty, dusty. The windows did not open which did not allow guests and/or hotel staff to clear the allergans from the air. In closing, to be fair, I am accustomed to higher end hotel chains and boutique hotels.

Adore this place

4th stay here (have a child at CofC). I always have some issue (non-hotel related) and the Holiday Inn always seems to resolve it for me! Incredible concierge service.

A great getaway for mid-westerners

We enjoyed walking tours and a trip to Ft. Sumpter. The city is historic and beautiful with many great places to eat. The concierge was most helpful in suggesting and arranging tours and with tips about where to eat.

highly disappointing

I have been to better Holiday Inns in rural areas. The room was tiny and very noisy. We requested a room with a balcony and we got one... too bad the door to the balcony had no latch and wouldn't close properly. we were kept up all night by the non-stop traffic below. Also, kepping the room cool was next ot impossible due to the crack in the door. We love the Charleston area and will return but we will NEVER stay in this hotel again.

Adequate

Good location; convenient to dining and historical attractions. Parking additional $11/daily. No microwave/fridge in room; no continental breakfast. Air conditioner noisy. Nice front porch area with fans and rocking chairs. Highly touted concierge never available. Because of location, this was an adequate place to stay.

Justene's is a short walk from hotel. Decent home cooking. Less impressed with Hominy Grill, which is not within walking distance.
