Clarion Inn Mt. Pleasant - Charleston

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We really enjoyed the breakfast variety and quality. Also enjoyed the free paper and free Wi-Fi that worked fine. It was quiet and we also enjoyed having the refrigerator and coffee maker inside. They also had a microwave, but we did not use. The only negative was that 4 towels were dirty, so we had them exchanged at the desk.

We found the Clarion to be a very nice motel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Our room was clean and comfortable. The motel is in a great location, right at the base of the bridge to go across the river to historic Charleston. The desk clerk who checked us in was especially helpful in giving us advice on finding a dinner restaurant. Thanks, Bobbie! We would stay at this motel again.

I had issues the night I had the hotel booked for in that I couldn't get a hold of anyone at the hotel to let me in (it was after midnight), but when I was able to get a hold of someone later on that day, they said I could use my reservation for the next night.

Apparently construction work was being done on hotel. Rather than have the full dumpsters parked away from the building, they were parked next to the rooms. This was on a Fri. night. There was no construction going on. There was a lift parked in the way that could have moved all of the dumpsters to the back end of the parking lot if the hotel managers had insisted. Construction workers only care about themselves. If the hotel don't take charge, they will take advantage of them and the money paying customers will suffer. I noticed that construction was being done at a neighboring hotel and the construction equipment was out of the way of the guest. The prices were basically the same. The next time I have to stay in this area, guess which hotel I will choose?

My stay was very nice and comfortable - it met all of my expected needs.

This was a short 3 day stay. When we got to our room the door was open and the room was only 1/2 clean. The front desk staff only said they said it was clean. We were promised the room in 10 minutes and although the trash was out and the cleaning stuff removed. I still wiped down the room myself. things looked greasy. one day the dirty towels were removed but not replaced with clean ones and then one day they reset all our keys - we had not checked out and we had prepaid. Never once was there an apology. Will not stay there again.

Yes the hotel was very nice, and the staff was nice.

This is an old style motel where the doors open to the parking lot. Stool didn't operate the first night. Unless the price is your only criteria, I would avoid this one.

First of all it is a MOTEL. You just get what you pay for! I would pay an extra $15-$20 but I rather stay at better place. Rooms smell moldy. I would not recommended it for a family vacation! Wi-fi was so bad, almost we didn't have any!

Clean rooms and friendly staff. Awesome location to jump off to all of Charleston's beaches and attractions.

Was nice and close to everything I wanted to see and do in the area. A little confusing getting into, but that may have been my gps.

Hotel, really more of motel, seems to have been recently renovated. Staff was pleasant upon arrival, the complimentary breakfast exceeded my expectations, and the room was clean and comfortable. Perfect for our brief visit in which we spent very little time at our room. I'd say the hotel was a good value, just don't expect business-level accommodations. Convenient location.

hard to get to but other than that good stuff. would stay again there though

Staff were good with a decent pool. Convenient location.

The room was very comfortable and spacious. The location was convenient and easy to find from downtown Charleston. The free breakfast was great, but the lines were congested. The food/drink tables were along the walls and for some reason, seemed to be at a standstill. The ice machine on my floor didn't work, but the one below it did. The staff was very pleasant and helpful.

First off, this is a motel, not a hotel. It should not be advertised as anything but. The location was very good - just off of the Ravenel bridge as you get to Mt. Pleasant, within a half mile or so of the Mt. Pleasant Pier. I will say that the staff was very friendly. When we first checked in, we found there was a leak from the toilet with water on the floor. They quickly put us into another room. The air conditioner in the room was unbearably loud, even on the lowest fan setting. Also, my wife was bitten several times during the night by bugs. Not good quality. For the price we paid, we expected much, much more. I would give it a single star, but for the location. Two stars maximum for our experience.

We found the directions to hotel and location to be quite easy and accurate. The room was clean and comfortable and had everything it advertised. Breakfast was hot cooked food which was enjoyable. I would recomend this hotel

Overpriced, but great location . Checking in at 3pm sucked considering we called a few days ahead to see if we could check in early and lady at front said it wasn't a problem.

Honestly, we chose this hotel because of it's location and it is pet-friendly but also because it was the only one fitting those criteria that had available rooms over the Fourth of July weekend. We were pleasantly surprised by the condition of the rooms, the comfort of the bed, the ample breakfast buffet and courteous, helpful staff. We visit Charleston often and will stay at the Clarion on our next visit!
