We chose this hotel for our 3 nights in Charleston, SC for sightseeing based on price and reviews. We found the location to be great for our purposes, even though it wasn't directly downtown. It was less expensive than downtown, however, and since we had a car, it was only a 10-15 minute drive to whatever we wanted to see....

Stayed for a short business trip. Has the normal good quality expected in a Holiday Inn Express. If you are on a budget, a very good price compared to downtown Charleston. Free parking, easy access, close to the airport and not too far from downtown Charleston. Friendly staff, clean and well appointed rooms.

This hotel was just average, in service, decor, comfort. The keys kept giving us trouble. We were told our room was "quirky". Really? Why weren't the locks fixed? The ventilation did not work in the bathroom at ALL. After a shower, the room was unusable for 30 minutes due to moisture build up on every surface. While downtown was supposedly...

Only a short drive away from the airport, this hotel was in a great location and easy to get to. While they offered us a shuttle from the airport, we ended up getting a rental car and found the parking to be very convenient at the hotel. The entire hotel staff was friendly and accommodating, a refreshing surprise! The rooms...

We choose this hotel because we did not want to pay the rates that you do when staying in the historic area. We found the hotel to be very nice and we would do it again. It was about 10 minutes away and an easy drive.

We stayed for several nights at this truly superior hotel. We had a large suite with a separate living area that had French doors leading to the large bedroom, plus a small kitchen area with a sink, fridge, and microwave.

We spent two nights at this hotel, which was either recently build or recently renovated. Our room (303) was spacious and clean and the free breakfast was reasonably good (pancakes, biscuits and gravy, eggs, sausage, bacon, fruit, etc.). The bed was comfortable and the shower worked well. The hotel is not in the main tourist area but is a short...
