We stayed here for 1 night while passing through Charleston. The hotel is clean and updated, but sleep quality wasn't the greatest due to noise. Apparently the Cook Out restaurant in front of the hotel is open until 3:30AM, and the windows aren't well soundproofed. The room itself was clean and comfortable.

The front desk was friendly and helpful. Since it was a holiday the evening happy hour and morning breakfast were abbreviated. The internet was fair speed, but the TV... More

So the property is a nice and typical Marriott Fairfield Inn. A few notes, being a Platinum level Marriot rewards member I would expect at least some acknowledgement when checking in. The managers reception is a nice touch. One major negative is the internet is horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I always check my room before settling in for a stay. Most of the time I find little things like worn tub floors, dirt buildup in the corners, carpets that are somewhat stained but not here. This was truly a great experience. Don't hesitate to stay here as you won't regret it. A bit on the pricey side at $96/nt.... More

We loved this hotel. We stayed here before we moved to Charleston and love it. We stayed two different times and both times we had a great stay! The second time we were complimentary upgraded by David and it was perfect since we have a one year old! He was so welcoming and friendly! Deff recommend this hotel to anyone!
