HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 February 2017 via mobile

We spent 2 nights at this wonderful inn and would highly recommend it if you want a wonderful, laid back home atmosphere away from the hustle of downtown. We appreciated the free, easy parking and chose this inn because they offered a downtown shuttle which runs every hour on the hour. But the hotel exceeded our expectations with their excellent...

Nice hotel. Clean rooms. Great rooftop bar/restaurant. Location feels disconnected from downtown. Very busy 6 lane roadway to cross, but then pleasant mile stroll to downtown. Good value if you don't mind the walk.

Maybe strong words but here's what I mean. This hotel was recommended by my nephew who stayed while renovating their house for three days. The hotel was in the perfect location since the nephew lives just across the marina. We had a view of the marina which at first thought may be very nice. My recommendation is to not stay...

Hotel was well appointed and the staff was more than accommodating. Breakfast was surprisingly good and the rooftop bar provided a relaxing spot to decompress. Shuttle service provided downtown was convenient and a great benefit

We were in Charleston for the first time just for one evening, and had an excellent experience here! Clean, spacious rooms and kind staff - Taylor at the front desk especially was wonderful. Only downside was it was a bit further from downtown that we expected (not walking-distance, but complimentary shuttle available). Overall would recommend especially if you're looking to...

This building is unique and beautifully situated on the Charleston Harbor. It is not within walking distance to the historic district but the free shuttle was great! We had free parking at the hotel and then a driver to get us into town. The rooms are spacious, food was reasonably priced, and the staff was outstanding. A perfect three days!

Great staff and breakfast. Clean room and excellent fitness center. Very clean grounds and well maintained. Excellent view of the marina area. Was some construction in the surrounding area. Some national fast food chain restaurants, within walking distance of hotel.

We were so excited that our "non-water view" room actually had great views of the river :) We saw some highway too, but we live in NJ so we're used to that. Room was super clean, good size and beds were comfortable. We stayed the night before Easter and they had an egg hunt in the morning...very cute. I'd definitely...

The location of this hotel was perfectly set between Folly and Downtown Charleston. The hourly shuttle made it easy to get downtown quickly. The room we stayed in was very nice, plenty of room for the number of people we shared with. The breakfast bar was delicious, and the lobby area was modern, comfortable, and fun to lounge in. We...
