North Charleston

The first night was frustrating because the WIFI was not working in the room we were in. I had been driving all day into the night and was tired, so I did not address this until the following day. Luckily, the next morning, the awesome lady working the front desk, Joyce, moved us to another room where everything was A-OK! The rooms were very clean and spacious. This hotel is right next to the on/off ramps, so getting into Charleston (10-15 miles away) is a breeze!

Just a Room

Although our room was a remodel there were a lot of basic comfort considerations that were missed. No tv information guide Room was suppose to be smoke free but there was a heavy smell of cover up freshner and the bed pillows had a smokie smell. Ice was left on the floor to melt into the carpet. There was no coverage of the internet in the room at all. Had to go to the lobby for connection. Key card problems they didn't work very well. There was no information booklet about the hotel or surrounding ares. Switch on lamp next to bed was broken. On the plus side. The mattress was very comfortable The tub was deep and awesome The room was decorated very pretty The new toliet was higher than most. All of the problems are a easy (attention to detail) fix and would represent a caring attitude from the staff to the owner.

Needs maintenance

The staff was great and as helpful as they could be. However, we found that there were multiple maintenance issues with our room. First the electrical outlet in the bathroom was not functional because the electrical contacts in the outlet were badly bent preventing any thing plugged in from making electrical contact. Second the toilet was not fastened to the floor and rocked back and forth whenever you sat on it. We decided to stay as this was a quick trip, but we will not be coming back.

Stay elsewhere

The room was clean, except for the bed sheets and a mildew smell. Bathroom was clean with clean towels. Surrounding neighborhood felt unsafe. Bus station right next door. Rain tracks right behind the hotel. The worst part was the adjacent club/lounge with very loud music that kept us up all night! I'm still waiting for a call back from the manager about a partial refund 24 hours later. I was promised I'd hear back within hours of departure and no call yet.

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.

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.
