Stayed here because it was close to a friend we were visiting. Took a trip into the Charleston Historic district, and used Uber in and out since the driving was unfamiliar (Uber cost $23 each way). The trip took about 30 minutes. The Fairfield is very nicely appointed, with a friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was excellent with many...

This is a very comfortable place, with friendly staff and good service. Our only complaint was a persistent smell like air freshener or cleaning liquid; it was a bit annoying. We would return in spite of that.

Business trip to the area, stayed one night. Front desk was friendly and helpful, room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was adequate. There was a sign on the door stating that construction was going on but I never saw it. Very comfortable, I would stay there again!

This was my first time at this hotel, my wife's second time. Front desk staff friendly and attentive. We stayed for 3 nights and every front desk person was genuinely helpful. We stayed on the top floor where they were remodeling half the floor. The construction was well managed. the carpets leading out of the construction area were clean. The...

Went to Charleston at the last minute. This hotel offered a great rate, great staff, and a very clean room. Front desk staff were very informative - breakfast and evening reception times, surrounding offerings, etc. The room was large, two queens, space for everything and great sleeping beds. We didn't do breakfast but it was offered. We did the reception...

This is simply the best choice for a short stay in the area. The staff are professional and pleasant, the rooms are always clean, comfortable and roomy, and quiet, and the price is always reasonable. It is in the perfect location off University near Trident Hospital - you can walk to Starbucks, Firehouse Subs, Cookout (burgers and shakes), and a...

I had multiple stays for multiple nights at this property simply because it was my favorite working along the GA and SC coast. Hotel is out of the expense of downtown Charleston hotels but convenient to the interstate. All of the staff that I encountered was very friendly and the managers reception on the weekday evenings is a nice touch...

The Inn is located near major roads that make for an easy stop on a long trip. It maintains the level of quality that we expect from Fairfield. The property is nicely designed with clean spacious rooms. One of the excellent staff did stand out for us. Kori was at the desk when we checked in and we had a...

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. Perhaps, our experience was just a fluke, but...
