    Quiet location, had a shuttle service to downtown each night, very comfortable beds, nice breakfast and Monday-Thursday evening had complimentary light meal which was a bonus because we had traveled all day on Wed. and there were hotdogs and hamburgers with baked beans that evening and we did not have to go out for a meal. Staff were great.

    Great stay

    Very good

    Perfect location between Folly Beach and downtown Charleston.

    We were on the 6th floor with a small two room suite. It was very small. The couch was well warn and should be replaced. The bed was a queen instead of a king.

    Good

    The hotel was pet friendly. It included a small fitness center and business center. The shuttle to downtown Charleston was complimentary.

    We didn't have working phones! We had two phones in the room, and neither of them worked. We notified the front desk on three different occasions, but they never fixed it. The phones were still not working when we left. We didn't get an appropriate apology from the young man at the front desk. He just tried to rush us out.

    I really liked that the hotel was about a 5 minute drive from the starting point for the Charleston marathon. I was able to leave my room for the race at a relatively late time. I also liked the complimentary breakfast they offered, as they had multiple different options.

    It was very clean and a quiet place. Very impressed!

    It was very close to the City of Charleston. A straight drive to Downtown Charleston.

    there wasn't anything I didn't like. the hotel was sotlessly clean, the staff friendly and very helpful. the location was good.

    If I was going to say anything it would be that maybe a bigger eating area would help. It was cold out and everyone was inside so it was a little crowded.

    Superb

    We were totally pleased with the entire stay-the staff was gracious & helpful at all times &the break- fast gave us a good start for the days filled with sightseeing. We appreciated the"extra's"provided(shuttle,suppers,warm coffee) & the room was spacious & comfort-able. A great place-thankyou!

    Fabulous

    Отельчик очень уютный и комфортный.На стенах красивые картины.В номерах оборудованные кухни.Брали номер с двумя спальнями-очень понравился.Кровати большие и удобные.В каждой спальне свой санузел с ванной-тоже большое удобство.Бесплатная парковка и хороший завтрак.В центр города ходит бесплатный автобус туда-обратно.Можно вечером расслабится и погулять без машины в центре.Есть бассейн-работает до 23-00.Круглосуточная рецепшен-очень удобно ,мы приехали поздно ночью и быстро заселились.В общем нам этот отель очень понравился-не хотелось уезжать.

    Несколько далековато от магазинов и кафе.До исторического центра пешком не дойдешь. Но если на машине-то это не проблема.Внутри номера нет стиральной машины(хотя есть на этаже постирочная с машинками-но это не всегда удобно).

    Very good

    L'accueil est chaleureux, le personnel attentif et très poli.L'hôtel est bien situé à quelques encablures du centre ville desservi le soir par une navette gratuite.Le petit déjeuner est parfait

    la suite que nous avons occupée était correcte mais était située à proximité des tours de climatisation, ce qui causait un bruit permanent très gênant surtout la nuit. Bien que l'établissement soit pet friendly, le coût de 100 $ facturé pour notre petit chihuahua est exorbitant au regard d'autres hôtels 3 et 4 * que nous fréquentons habituellement et qui ne pratiquent pas ces prix et sont même pour certains gratuits
