Very reasonably priced for a solid hotel near downtown Charleston. The hotel offers a free shuttle to and from town every couple hours from 7:30am-9:30pm, making for a stress free commute. With that stated, the area immediately surrounding the hotel (it is situated between a divided highway) is hectic. I had originally planned to run to the historic district from...

I was greeted by Kailyn and Anne who were very nice. They got me checked. The lobby was cold due to the temp drop and the cold air coming off the water through the sliding glass door. they need revolving doors or a redesign of the building. It has nothing to do with the staff who were great and helpful,...

This hotel probably has the best "distance to downtown/price value" ratio in Charleston. If you are the type to be out all day/all night, go back to the hotel, sleep, wake up, repeat, then this is the place for you. A quick Uber to downtown, or a quick drive to James Island beaches, this is the place. Not fancy or...

This hotel is more of a novelty. Each room is shaped like a piece of pie. If you get a suite--surprise! It's two pieces of pie without the wall down the middle! The view is pretty spectacular over the water, especially in the evening. However, you don't find out till you get into your room that all of the balcony...

Located 2 miles away from the main market and also shuttle service works well. Hotel facilities are not that great..rooms needs a redo and very small bathrooms with old fittings. We opted for breakfast buffet, which was average as well with no juice included.

Traveled in early April for a weekend getaway and had a great time. You pay less being over the bridge and slightly away from the heart of downtown, but the hotel offers a shuttle so it's a great option for a budget getaway! Plus the shuttle drivers offer lots of great tips and recommendations. Views from the top restaurant are...

Stayed here for 3 nights after Christmas. Hotel is definitely a little dated, and shows that it is worn around the edges.....only. They did a great job at trying to update it and you can tell the staff has great pride in their property. The views are outstanding, the location unbeatable, and the price half of what you would pay...

This was a good hotel for the price. The room was clean; the staff was super friendly; the hotel offered a shuttle service that dropped guests off in Market and came back every few hours to return guests to hotel. However, breakfast is not included. We tried the Buffett anyway. The food was bland; the coffee was burned, and for...
