Bed sheets were dirty

Staff was nice. The bed sheets and the covers were dirty. We stayed just one night and the cable was out the entire time.

Choo choo!

Really bad part of town. Police have a reserved parking space in front of hotel. A lot of questionable activity going on out there at night. Right next to train tracks. Had to listen to train horns all night. The constant chugging of Thomas and Percy shunting cars was kind of relaxing, but then horn blasts were a nuisance.

There is a nice shopping area about 2 miles up the interstate. Stay in one of the any hotels near there.

in and out

The bed was very nice and comfortable, however our nonsmoking room smelled like smoke. Also the continental breakfast would have been an extra $5 per person. Overpriced in my opinion.

Good but...

The hotel is convenient from Charleston and Folly Beach. There is a mildew smell in the lobby and an only one elevator working. The room was clean and comfortable. The only real issue we had is there was a party in the restaurant which is attached to the hotel and was very noisy.

Weekend Getaway

Pretty solid time while we were in Charleston. Hotels in the center of Charleston were pricey so we picked this one only a 20 minute drive from downtown and many of the surrounding islands. Awesome staff, had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and would definitely recommend to anyone.

NOT HAPPY AT ALL

This was my first time ever booking a hotel. I booked it for 2 nights and had to leave immediately the day before checkout. I went down there for a funeral and could not stay. I had asked for a refund and they said no. I WILL NEVER USE THIS COMPANY AGAIN. I COULD NOT HELP THE SITUATION THAT I HAD TO LEAVE EARLIER THAN PLANNED.
