The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and offered suggestions about places to go and where to get something to eat. We enjoyed the hotel breakfast buffet. The location of the hotel made it easy to get to places. Also, if you are hungry there are several restaurants near the hotel...

The front desk people were very good. They took excellent care of us on check in. The room was large and clean. The location was easy to find. Starting at 9:00pm until 1:30 in the morning several motorcycles and /or cars with either no mufflers or glass pacs raced up and down the street. The North Charleston police did nothing...

On the way back home, comfortable with no problems. Room was very clean and that was important. Breakfast was provided but nothing special. Most importantly everything was in working order and was clean. That should be enough to stay here.

We had a hard day driving and when we finally got to the hotel Cory at the front desk greeted us with a most wonderful smile and greeting. I stay at Marriott properties a lot and I've never had a more genuine welcome. The room was great, we loved the arrangement, the breakfast was quite good - just a great...

I stayed at this Fairfield Inn several years ago and remembered it not being anything special. Not knowing if I would make it from Savannah I waited till late in the day to book a room and this property was one of my few choices available near Summerville. When I walked in, the lobby had obviously been updated. On top...

I stayed at this hotel while traveling for business. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Gave great recommendations for restaurants in the area. The rooms were recently remodeled. They were nice and clean. The breakfast in the morning was delicious. I highly recommend the grits station!!! :) Would definitely stay at this hotel while in the area again.

My friends and I stayed at this hotel during a recent vacation through the Low Country. The price was more reasonable than the hotels in downtown Charleston, and the drive to downtown is an easy 25 minutes. Kori, who checked us in, was very friendly; we were thrilled to be upgraded to the penthouse suite for the duration of our...

Stayed here because it was close to a friend we were visiting. Took a trip into the Charleston Historic district, and used Uber in and out since the driving was unfamiliar (Uber cost $23 each way). The trip took about 30 minutes. The Fairfield is very nicely appointed, with a friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was excellent with many...

This is a very comfortable place, with friendly staff and good service. Our only complaint was a persistent smell like air freshener or cleaning liquid; it was a bit annoying. We would return in spite of that.
