What makes this a great hotel is the pool and the newly renovated rooms- Also the staff! The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. It is convenient to many restaurants and Downtown. The breakfast was our favorite because we got to interact with Carol! We stay in Charleston every year but have never stayed on the West Ashley side...

We chose the hotel because it was pet friendly and wanted to stay in Charleston. We found it so relaxing, and the beds were really comfortable – we both had a really good sleep. We loved the courtyard and gardens around the pool, very nice. The complimentary breakfast is great and so we took advantage of that also. Very nice...

We wanted a nice hotel for our weekend getaway but didn't want to pay the exorbitant prices of the downtown hotels. This hotel was the answer! It was a very simple commute to the downtown attractions. The rooms were a little small but very adequate for our needs and very clean. The thing I liked most was there were no...

Really pretty place. No elevator so book accordingly. The rooms are well decorated and modern. They are well maintained and clean. Prices are affordable. Friendly, courteous staff. Breakfast is very good with hot and cold items, anything you could possibly want.
