Our room was comfortable although with a view of a building site next door. Breakfast was fine and well policed. The staff we dealt with were efficient and friendly. The downside was the roadworks outside the hotel made the entrance difficult to find.

I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Charleston Downtown-Ashley River from January 21st through January 28th due to medical treatment my wife was receiving at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). The hotel building was very well maintained. The room was very clean and fresh. The morning breakfast was always set up early and was well stocked with...

Although there is construction surrounding the property, I had researched and knew what to expect on that front. I also booked through a popular discount website for less than half of the advertised price. Which in the Charleston is unheard of. We only stayed one night and were happy with the cleanliness and comfort of our room. There was no...

We arrived during rush hour on Friday and major construction. Sharon and Tonya took care of us and made us feel right at home. They were friendly, helpful, nice and very good at what they do. Thank you ladies for turning things around. They were always ready to answer questions and help us with whatever we needed. Would stay here...

BEWARE. There is a major high rise construction project literally right next to the south side of the building and unfortunately our room was facing it on the 8th floor. They started night construction at 11 pm and poured and finished concrete all night long. Trucks were backing in and out and unloading and was ridiculous. It was awful here...

The hotel stay was ok. However, it wasn't worth the price. We didn't have a choice in our hotel, and had we had the choice I would have gone elsewhere. There were nicer hotels in that price range or for just a little more money. The room was clean and refreshed daily. The construction wasn't terrible. Our room was on...

Our recent visit to Charleston was not "one to savor"...! First, the hotel is situated in the middle of a 360 degree construction site... new parking garage on the left, road and bridge construction one block away, challenging entry and exit lanes, and limited signage offering directions! Once we checked in at the front desk, there were NO luggage carts...

I had a terrible time at this holiday inn but the front desk staff was so awesome. They were so polite and courteous. Tonya was very cheerful and patient. She talked to me when I was down.

A group of friends spent the night at this location and we asked the desk clerk to split our room charge two ways, what a mistake! My friend was charged the half rate, I was charged the full rate, along with a misc charge of $15. This after a week of being pending on my charge card. Contacted the manager...
