This was a great hotel...very clean, very accomidating, nice breakfast, and rather close to downtown Charleston, or Mt. Pleasant, via I-526. About the only downside I have is the traffic noise. You are literally surrounded by big highways. U.S. 17 borders the south, South Carolina 7 on the west and north, and I-526 on the east. By using the a/c fan, we could drown out the noise of U.S. 17 pretty good (our room faced the road) at night. But it would be my suggestion to ask for a room away from this street.
We would, however, return to this location on another Charleston visit. It has a great indoor pool, and nice exercise room area. Getting to this hotel is somewhat of a trick. If on I-526, you have to proceed through one red light, and turn directly right at a second, onto U.S. 17 South. The hotel's only entrance is on U.S. 17 South, and you cannot access it from U.S. 17 North directly. You have to go down and U-turn back. To go to downtown Charleston, you have to do the opposite...go down and U-turn at the light on the southeast side of the building.
Don't let this review scare you away. The room we had was first rate, and the staff was very helpful. Just be ready for a bit of traffic noise, and restricted ways into the parking area.
