Excellent, cheap hotel

Although this hotel is further away from downtown Charleston (~6-10 minutes from East Bay St/Market/Meeting) it is a short, easy drive and there is ample parking downtown. It is about a 20 minute drive from Folly Beach. For the price, I think the minor inconvenience of driving is negligible. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Short driving distance to King Street

We wanted a hotel that was close to the historic downtown and King Street that wasn't extremely expensive since we weren't really spending too much time at the hotel. The hotel is about 15 minutes from Folley Beach and a 5 minute drive to King Street which is great boutique shopping, phenomenial restuarants and lots of fun bars.

Holiday Inn Riverview

We most enjoyed eating in the hotel dining room - we were tired after house-hunting every day - they had an excellent view of the Ashley River, little white boats, the buildings across, etc. Just lovely. That was the best part of the hotel. Beds were very comfortable; room large. Maid didn't come until very late one day; we were out 9-3 and still not cleaned. I took a nap, then called them at 5 and it finally got done. The wait staff in the restaurant seemed rather inexperienced and a bit awkward, but they gave us a free breakfast the last day so can't complain! :-) We also had trouble with the phone; one of their managers was very attentive helping us, even coming to the room to check on things.
