“Great location, but needs a facelift”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

If all you need is a bed in the Historic area of Charleston, this is a good one. It's literally walking distance to The Battery, the Harbor Cruises, the Old Slave Market (City Market) and several other downtown historic areas of interest. We were able to leave our car and walk to all of the points of interest.

That said, though, the property is obviously older. There are quite a few cosmetic defects (cracks in the walls, older bathroom fixtures, etc.), and housekeeping services can be hit or miss.

Overall, the hotel was good for our needs and I would stay again.

I had never been to Charleston before and wasn't sure where to stay downtown so I tried the Days Inn. If going to stay downtown there are better alternatives. During my stay there was a day that our room wasn't made but they came and took the dirty towels but didn't leave clean ones. I went to the front desk and they didn't want to give me enough for each of us in the room a clean towel. There were three of us and they only wanted to give 2 towels. After I left and got home I found out they charged me for the SAFE each day that was never used and not something I wanted.

This is probably the only hotel in the historic area under 300 dollars. It is not the fanciest hotel, kind of dated. However, for a Days Inn it is kept up better and they do try to keep the outside more presentable to fit into Charleston. The young guy working in the afternoon was very helpful and prompt. The women at check out in the morning were rude.

This hotel is about location, location, location without breaking the bank. It really is central. You can go out the rod iron door by pool and be on King St shopping or Market St out the back or Meeting St right out from. You are located right near the Market so you can be shopping on King St in one minute or heading down Church St to the battery in 2. If you are looking for just a cheap bed in a great location this is it. Also a perk is on site parking in downtown Charleston. Average hotel nothing fancy great location and parking. Giving it very good for the location and parking compared to price.

If you're looking for a place to stay that is literally within walking distance to many Charleston landmarks, then this is the motel for you. While the motel is older, it is well maintained. We stayed 5 days and 4 nights and had a very pleasant stay. The housekeepers were friendly and always willing to assist. Our room was clean and the air conditioner worked great! We didn't use the pool, but it did appear to be clean. The only negative experience was the interaction with the front desk personnel. They were rude and had an I don't give a flip attitude. Not really the personality needed for the tourist industry.

Their check-in is at 4:00 p.m. We arrived early morning tired and ready to relax. DID NOT HAPPEN! APPARENTLY, we asked if the room was ready too many times!! She went off and said, it may be ready at 4, 5, or 6. It will be ready when it is ready!! VERY RUSE!!! OLD ROOMS!! Not worth the money!! Great location!! Needs to be torn down and a respectable hotel rebuilt!! So much for the friendliest city!!

The location of Days Inn is fantastic - close to all the museums (located on the museum mile) but the cleanliness was less than average. The carpet is very worn and the bathroom was pretty gross. The a/c was really loud and kept us awake at night.
