      Spacious, comfortable rooms, very helpful staff, delicious breakfast.

      Quiet location, had a shuttle service to downtown each night, very comfortable beds, nice breakfast and Monday-Thursday evening had complimentary light meal which was a bonus because we had traveled all day on Wed. and there were hotdogs and hamburgers with baked beans that evening and we did not have to go out for a meal. Staff were great.

      Great stay

      Nice location and good service

      the room appeared smaller then advertized.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      Perfect location between Folly Beach and downtown Charleston.

      We were on the 6th floor with a small two room suite. It was very small. The couch was well warn and should be replaced. The bed was a queen instead of a king.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      The room and staff were all great. The free shuttle to downtown was wonderful.

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      Free trolley to and from downtown in the evening, cozy room, nice breakfast buffet, friendly staff, great location

      Bathroom sink and counter right in bedroom area, so couldn't get up and get ready for the day without disturbing spouse who wanted to sleep longer

    • Couple
      6.2

      The hotel was pet friendly. It included a small fitness center and business center. The shuttle to downtown Charleston was complimentary.

      We didn't have working phones! We had two phones in the room, and neither of them worked. We notified the front desk on three different occasions, but they never fixed it. The phones were still not working when we left. We didn't get an appropriate apology from the young man at the front desk. He just tried to rush us out.

    • Single

      I really liked that the hotel was about a 5 minute drive from the starting point for the Charleston marathon. I was able to leave my room for the race at a relatively late time. I also liked the complimentary breakfast they offered, as they had multiple different options.

    • Family with children
      10.0

      It was very clean and a quiet place. Very impressed!

      It was very close to the City of Charleston. A straight drive to Downtown Charleston.

    • Group of friends
      9.6

      there wasn't anything I didn't like. the hotel was sotlessly clean, the staff friendly and very helpful. the location was good.

      If I was going to say anything it would be that maybe a bigger eating area would help. It was cold out and everyone was inside so it was a little crowded.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      We were totally pleased with the entire stay-the staff was gracious & helpful at all times &the break- fast gave us a good start for the days filled with sightseeing. We appreciated the"extra's"provided(shuttle,suppers,warm coffee) & the room was spacious & comfort-able. A great place-thankyou!
