“Great value near St Francis Hospital ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

Needed a place for my family to stay during a recent hospital stay. This place was great. Very clean and a wonderful staff. The king-size bed in our suite was one of the most comfortable hotels beds ever. Only bummer was an outdoor pool -- too cold for kids to swim.

Stayed March 2014

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

Very impressive for a Holiday Inn - the rooms were large, very clean and staff accommodating.

Free breakfast included hot eggs, bacon, sausage and make your own pancakes.

Asked for an extra pillow which they didn't have but otherwise was very pleased with everything including the free shuttle from the airport.

This hotel is excellent! We stayed here for 4 nights and are so glad we did! It is an easy drive to Charleston and close to other interesting places, too. The motel was very clean, thanks to a great housekeeping staff. The rooms were a good size and bed was comfy. Breakfast was great! The cinnamon rolls were wonderful! The front desk was very helpful and friendly, too. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend.

Stayed for 4 nights. Large beautifully furnished room with micro, fridge & coffe maker.
Breakfast with lots of choices served free with room. Located on Old Savannah Hwy about 5 mi from downtown. Easy drive to Historic District and close to many plantations.
Highly recommended.

The hotel room was clean and roomy. Located just off the highway which was great and has a traffic light to get out easy. The room heat and air unit was a little noisy. I would stay there again if traveling to Charleston because of location. It's a short drive to folly beach which is a small beach town. Plenty of places to eat around the hotel.

Pro:
Rooms are comfortable, modern, quiet and (at least during my stay) impeccably clean.

Breakfast menu changes slightly each day so you're not eating the same thing.

Staff were professional and polite.

You'll need to drive to downtown Charleston, but the West Ashley green belt is located right the hotel and makes for a pleasant walk/run/bike ride. The hotel is also about a 5-10 minute drive from the public indoor swimming pool which is a) always empty and b) costs only $4. Easy access to the airport.

Con:
I can think of no cons to this hotel.

We stayed here the night before our cruise and loved it. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The shuttle took us to the port and picked us up when the cruise was over and brought us back to our car at the hotel. Highly recommend!
