Room was clean. Location is good near highway. But room is noisy. One side is interstate and other side is railway train. I don't know how often train runs. Bedroom furniture is new but is basic. Free wifi. Breakfast is not much.

This hotel was the worst place I've ever stayed in Charleston. When we first arrived, the front staff was not too friendly but I can deal with that. We get to our room and the sliding glass door in our room that leads to our balcony not only does not lock, but it doesn't even close all the way! The...

The hotel probably used to be a "grand hotel" and most of the amenities are still there but the whole place is not very well maintained. It looks rather shabby and the staff at the reception doesn't seem to be very interested. If not rude ... The wifi is not reliable and the breakfast room is extremely small and ill...

This is an excellent place to stay at a reasonable price outside Charleston historic district. We chose this place as historic district hotels were over-priced. The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom had an ample space. It is close to Magnolia Plantation and Middleton Place. TV provided was a 50 inch, which was eye-catching. On the downside - the...

The hotel is located easy on/off highway 26. It is about 5 miles from downtown located in a more industrial area. Google maps indicated there are food places 5 - 10 within the hotel (we ate downtown). There is a pizza place that has salads, wings, sandwiches etc and they deliver late night. The room was clean and quiet. Pool...

It's not in the best area a little run down more industrial may have been nice in it's heyday but I could tell that management is trying hard to make it pleasant on the inside. Rooms were clean they need to change the carpet I could tell they shampoo it often maybe to often to keep it a little longer....

Ms. Meredith I do apologize if I came off as a drill sergeant at times my military background sneaks out without my noticing. We are in the early stages of renovation ideas and hopefully if your group visits us next year you will see some new changes on the inside.

I used the pics of the newly done renovation to pursuade me, and I'm glad I did. The hotel was great. Convenient to everything. Very tasteful renovation that would rival a Sheraton or Hilton. Personable staff. Everything that you expect including a gym, pool and breakfast. I'll definitely stay here again.

Stayed only one night. Large room with extra chairs, couch and table. Clean, nice staff (Britney was very kind) and a -very- essential breakfast. Free wifi, cheap shuttle to the airport and downtown. Hotel is not a young boy anymore and clearly screams for renovation works.
