If you or a member of the family likes trains this is the place to stay . But make sure your room faces the track (I think all even numbered rooms) .. I did not find the tracks to be too busy or too close, though they are next door. It was not like wall shaking noise.. Room was what...

If looking for a cheap hotel in Charleston, SC. You may find this one, but to really tell you guys, it's way better for everyone to pay for a more expensive one than these one, I did passed my worst night at a hotel. -The neighborhood isn't that friendly, because it is the HOOD. -It is freaking far from the...

Everything looks very clean and nicely arranged. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I was even allowed to get my room 3 hours early as i arrived earlier in the day. Plenty of light in the parking lot and pretty close to downtown.

I got a nice king sized room for only $50. That's a great deal! It was very clean and the front desk was very polite. My bed and pillows were very comfortable. In the morning they did not have a five star fancy breakfast but it was still nice. They had cereal, oatmeal, waffles, yogurt, and more.

Travelocity was more than awful. The very polite and generous front desk clerk had to call Travelocity multiple times because our reservation was waiting on their conformation. The woman stayed on the phone with them for at least 30 min. She demanded to talk to managers and was very determined to help us. I will update with pictures. But for...

One of the things that bothered me about this hotel is this......How can you run a hotel with the name Clarion Inn, but you're listed as Historic Grand Plaza North Charleston on the internet? Isn't this what we call false advertisement? The room service is really slack cause the toilet and tub weren't clean and we had to buy some...

my husband and I decided to stay at the Charleston Grand Hotel, as the prices were very affordable online. I must admit for a older hotel the rooms were beautiful. Everything was well done, linens were very white and clean and our room was very large. I can't say enough about the mattress, as I wish we could have taken...

I honestly can say that this hotel is not in a good area.This hotel is located next to a Greyhound bus station very near a high crime neighborhood.Some of the towels were badly worn and un-threading.Some of the linens (pillow cases) were old and discolored. The room we stayed in was typical in amenities.It is quiet except for house keepers...

This Hotel is now called the Carliton Inn. I tried to stay there but they could not find my reservation from Travelocity after 50 minutes of waiting, they made me call Travelocity and after another 30 minutes, still no room. I gave up and went to the Courtyard Marriott and got my refund from Travelocity.

We booked with Travelocity. On our way there they called and informed us they didn't have the room we booked so we had to have 6 people in a king bed with a roll away they gave us. It was clean for the most part however there was a lot needing fixed and cleaned, like the fly smashed to the...
