Bacon, sausage, eggs, two kinds of yogurt, dry cereal, small cartons of milk. Cinnamon rolls kept warm with gooey frosting, and yes FRESH fruit. I could go on but let...

This hotel is only 6 miles away from downtown Charleston, has comfortable and clean rooms and nice decor. The staff is very friendly. I traveled with family (including a newborn) and we all loved the queen sized beds in our rooms, it was probably one of the best hotel beds I've ever slept on. I also liked that the breakfast...

this hotel is conveniently located by the interstate, restaurants, and the airport. The staff is friendly, and the rooms were very clean with excellent beds, and a flat screen TV. The parking lot was clean and quiet. The free breakfast was better than normal and well stocked. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed recently for several days on vacation. Didn't know what to expect as I'd never been to the area. We were in 311 and honestly heard nothing other than a few not-too-loud conversations from the staff. Beds were comfortable and the room was clean. Had a nice sized refrigerator and was roomy enough for two people. First night there I...

Got a special deal on Kayak for a weekend for two in Charleston. The room was ok....the closet is cabinet with the TV secured to the back so you cannot see it from the right side of the bed. Cleaning crew neglected to replace the coffee packs and the complimentary breakfast is marginal at best.
