Stay Somewhere else

The hotel boasts of a riverview, but your view is a boat dock. The staff was less than friendly and caring. The room was dirty. Pills lying on the floor of the bathroom and near the bed. The sound on the tv was set at one level and could not be changed. The free breakfast was limited and the area was not kept clean of well stocked. There is a Staybridge hotel right across the parking area and has to be better than this.

Not what LaQuinta is knowed for

Room was very basic. Needed painting and bathroom had mold growing on the ceiling. I've stayed in quite a few LaQuinta hotels and this was certainly not up to the quality and standards of others. I thought the price was reasonable when I booked it, but I was wrong. Rooms were more like a Econolodge or Motel 6. I was very disappointed and would not stay there again.

Mediocre Weekend getaway.

Hotel staff were not that welcoming, lackluster in attitude, and somewhat rude. We were checking in and the cleaning lady interrupted us with the lady at the front desk. The two of them held a conversation as we waiting for them to be done talking. Hotel breakfast was average - your typical waffles, toast, bagels, cereal, yogurt, coffee and hard boiled eggs. However, the location of hotel was a good distance from downtown and the beach. If you are only planning to sleep at the hotel at night and don't want to spend too much money and be close to the major sites, this would be a fine spot. Just don't expect anything amazing.

Charleston Visit

The hotel was fine. It is getting a little run down and could use some renovations. It was very close to down town Charleston which made it a very convenient place to stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful about things to do in the Charleston area and how to get to them.

The Wild Olive on John's Island is one of the best Italian restaurants in the Charleston area. It is about a 15 minute drive from the hotel.

Need to work on the details

I realize they have a high volume of guests but there are little things that need improvement at this hotel like the cleanliness of the vending areas and the outdated bathrooms. The room itself was pretty good and the staff was pretty helpful.

Visiting our Airman

We wanted to stay closer to the beaches and downtown--this hotel, while a bit dated was great...the best part was the remarkable staff--the met or exceeeded every request we made--always with a smile and can we do anything else to make your stay good? I highly recommend this hotel--and California dreaming restraunt is good and next door---also try the ice cream at Ye old Ice Cream Shoppe--HUGE servings and good prices!

Very Disappointed

When we arrived at 9 in the evening, there were absolutely no paper products in the bathroom and only a couple of towels for the three of us. When we called down to the desk, the night receptionist was not very pleasant. The room had a fold up double bed, instead of a sofa bed which was promised, and I was assured that they confirmed that with the hotel prior to making the reservation. This was not the hotel's mistake. The next day the fold up was not made, even thought it was left openned. On the fourth day, housekeeping did not make up the room at all, even though we had made two requests upon leaving for the afternoon. The daytime desk personnel were very helpful and accomodating. The evening receptionists were not as friendly.The shuttle drivers were great and also helpful. They gave us good information about the downtown area. .

Good layover on opur trip

We stayed one night each way of our trip to Morehead City. Both nights the rooms were clean and supplied suffeciently. However on the frist night the room was noisy from outside traffic and the air unit. However the beds were very confortable. The second night the room was quiet but the beds were very indented and uncomfortable. Staff was good and having breakfast included worked out great
