We were surprised to find they serve a great hot breakfast at this hotel, considering usually only the Best Western Plus and up serve a full hot breakfast. The bed was very comfortable and temperature in the room was fine. We definitely recommend it.

Everyone here is so friendly and helpful. Nice and quiet area. Room was clean and comfortable. Beds are excellent. TV and internet worked fine. The pool looked great.. too...

We had a late check in around 2am with no hiccups and very friendly staff when we arrived so late. Our room was clean and neat with all the amenities that you would need for a few nights stay: mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker (although it was broken). The continental breakfast was very good and saved a lot of...

Clean rooms. Very little noise on back side of the hotel. We arrived the day before a Carnival Cruise and were pleasantly surprised with the condition of the grounds and room. The hotel is outside of the historic district but close enough for an easy drive in if you choose. The breakfast area was clean and the food was typical...

After looking at several hotels downtown Charleston and having difficulty justifying paying such high prices I looked at this Best Western. Not only was it reasonable for the area it was close proximity to downtown. Sure, we had to drive there and pay to park in a parking garage but parking garage prices were also very reasonable. The free breakfast...

Good morning Janice R! Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us! We love being in such close proximity to the Historic District! And you're right, parking prices at most garages downtown are definitely reasonable at $2/hour and a maximum of $16 for the day. We hope to see you again soon! And thank you for letting us...

Things were just OK. Way overpriced for what you get. Mediocre breakfast. Rooms were clean. Staff was polite and friendly (depending on who was at the desk). Overall, compared to other Best Westerns we have stayed at, this was a disappointment.

This motel was just what we needed........a place close enough to downtown Charleston that we could get there fairly quickly and easily, but without the exorbitant prices charged by accommodations in the peninsula. But there were plusses we weren't expecting -- like the lovely breakfast room adjacent to the pool area, which was lush with trees and bushes, the good...

My husband and I had a room in the back of the hotel in a separate building from the main hotel. Our room appeared to be smaller than the rooms in the main building. We were satisfied with the room.
