“Needs renovating & cleaning”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

Older hotel that supposedly went through a renovation a few years ago. It could certainly be refurbished especially in the bathroom. A little more attention to cleaning the room is needed. Located close to the historic district. Very friendly staff.

Just stayed this past weekend while attending a wedding. The hotel is lovely: the staff amazingly attentive. Rooms are renovated with Paul Mitchell hair products. Breakfast was great: very fresh fruit, warm staff and quick service.
MUCH quieter than historic Charleston. Beds very comfortable. Clean. Pool was fantastic with lounge chairs and folded towels. View of harbor for breakfast and lounging by the pool...perfect.

Room Tip: Ask for harbor view room

We decided to visit Charleston coming back from Florida. Last moment called and received a fabulous corner room with amenities given to equal the up-scale price for a single night. One of the best kept hotels we've ever been in.

I had a corner room and spacious surroundings and balconies. The hotel staff was very friendly! The hotel shuttle will drive you into historic charleston. Free parking at

hotel. No major dining available, but a handy shop with goodies. Lovely time at the pool.

Courtyard Marriott on Lockwood Drive in Charleston is perfect if you need to be near UMSC.
Well run, clean and a great setting.
I also recommend it for the great proximity to the great restaurants on Upper King Street.

Another great Mariott property. Stayed 4 relaxing days. Great location, super clean and confortable rooms, excellent and friendly staff. Fine breakfast buffet each morning.
Location is convenient to many great downtown food and shopping areas. Excellent little bar overlooking a lovely pool deck area. The concierge is very knowledable and provides good
transporation and dining services. Highly recommended.

I stay on the road 3 or 4 nights a week for work, and per my expense report guidelines, I try to keep it below $135.00.
(when possible) I saw this hotel online for a price of $174.00, so I booked a different hotel near the airport.
One of my co-workers told me he was staying here for $109.00. He said when he made his reservation he simply said "is that the best you can do?" The reservation specialist surprisingly dropped the price from $174.00 to $109.00. Not willing to let him one up me, I called and got the same deal.
I'm glad I did. I almost missed out on this gem. Right on the water looking out at a marina and lots of amazing boats. The hotel is absolutely beautiful, and is in a much nicer part of town than the airport area. Parking is free, and my room is HUGE. Big beautiful balcony with a couple of rocking chairs. I know at the end of the day a room is a room, but as a constant traveler, it's always nice to to have a large spacious room in a beautiful facility.
I have found my home in Charleston. I will stay here every time I'm in this area.

Side note: you have to eat in Mt Pleasant on the other side of that huge bridge. Reds Ice House was fantastic, and lots of fun. (casual and family friendly on the water)
