Staff was very friendly. When we booked, we didn't realize about the shuttle service. That was amazing and saved us money on cabs and uber. At one point, there wasn't room for us on the shuttle (it was our first day there), and the driver called us a cab and we weren't charged for it! That is service. We could...

We stayed four nights at this property while visiting Charleston downtown, area plantations and a day trip to Savannah. It was in a great location with easy access to the historical center of Charleston as well as the surrounding plantations. We had a few issues during our stay but Lauren, the guest services manager was extremely attentive and kind and...

We spent several days in this hotel in April 2017. The rooms are very clean and housekeeping does an excellent job. The suite was perfect for us and our elderly mother. What surprised us was the amenities. A full breakfast is provided each morning. Not just the typical bagels and fruit you normally get at a hotel. They had meats,...

First sign that it would be a good vacation was not having to wait for our room - checked in at 10 am! The Desk Clerk's helpful recommendations, the comfy 2 bedroom suite and the delicious free breakfasts helped make it a wonderful girls' weekend for the 5 of us!

I have stayed twice for a few days within the last month. My first stay was essentially perfect, minus the weird tasting apple juice and waffles. Second stay, the weird tasting apple juice and waffles remain. The hotel is actually pretty quiet. The breakfast is fine, but items just taste weird to me. The free appetizer nights are nice if...

Six of us ladies totally enjoyed this wonderful place and its hospitality! Everyone from the front desk clerk to the housekeeping staff and kitchen staff far exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond basic customer service! My best example was the waitress, Valerie, who after we joked with her about the fire pit outside and weren't we having smores...

After having a terrible experience at a different hotel around the corner. Residence Inn was very kind and able to accommodate me. King was working the front desk, and she was great! Very informative about the hotel grounds, shuttle service, etc. she was more than helpful and a kind face after a long day. The room was exceptionally clean and...

Up to usual high standards of reliability and top notch staff. Great location. Very quiet rooms. Nice balcony off my room big enough to sit and relax enjoying the outside air. Breakfast buffet was fresh and dining area clean and welcoming. Free parking, always a plus.

The room was a tad bit dated but not a major issue. Parking is safe, free, and right by the door. Calhoun St is a quick 5 minute drive. Getting back to the hotel from town is also easy - Exit 1 (Summerton) immediately over the James Island/Folly Beach bridge. Breakfast was great, socials at night were well attended. They...
