Entire staff were great, pleasant, welcoming, helpful. Room was clean, comfortable, quiet. parking was tight but did always have a convenient spot. TV excellent, internet very good. Breakfast good. To cold to use pool but it looked nice.

Convenient place to stay when visiting historic Charleston, S Carolina and not too far from the airport. Easy parking. Easy drive into historic district, map and directions provided by hotel. Knowledgeable and polite staff. Rooms quiet and clean. Hot breakfast served daily.

This was the first time booking a trip with Expedia and I wasn't sure what to expect, but I loved this hotel! The staff was very friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean and quiet, and the breakfast was AMAZING! If I were coming back to Charleston, I would definitely book this hotel again!

Margaret and Genia made us feel sooo at home! They both were warm, friendly and professional. As a senior citizen, they were helpful making me familiar with the pancake device and did so with graciously...their personalities would do well in the front of the house, where there wasn't as much warmth!

Room was wonderful! Beds are so soft and comfy!! All the staff members were kind and helpful. The decor in the rooms and around the hotel are beautiful. Love the high ceilings in the room. The pool looked inviting, but the weather was too cold. Will definitely stay here again.

Dear Kim H, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! The rooms with the vaulted ceilings really are beautiful, especially with the pool view. I hope you come back to see us when the weather is a little warmer so you can take advantage of our pool, it's the largest in Charleston!

We stayed one night, room was clean,plenty of space with table and chairs. Our room was near the outdoor pool as are most rooms there. Good breakfast included waffles eggs, sausage, pastries, cereal, yogurt, fruit and beverages.

Very impressed with cleanliness of hotel. The bed was more comfortable than mine at home. Not as close to Charleston as I would have liked but that was ok. There are nice eating places near by. The staff was great.

Stayed one night and had no issues. The place is clean but looks older and needs an update. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We had room near back so it may have been better near pool and up front. Convenient to many locations outside downtown area. It's a 20 minute ride to downtown Charleston. Breakfast was ok. All in...
