Creekside Lands Inn
Ranked #57 of 62 Hotels in Charleston
Reviewed 29 April 2012

We stayed at the Creekside Lands Inn over the weekend. Our friends were getting married on Kiawah Island and we weren't interested in paying $150+/night for a hotel room. I found this hotel through priceline for $79/night. You can't beat the value of this hotel in the area.
The Cons: We were given a non-smoking room, but clearly someone has smoked in here at some point because it smelled like smoke when we first walked in. The pillows were small, but they give you 5 for a king bed. The tv is annoying: whenever you turn it on it goes to channel 49 and you have to manually change it to channel 3 to get a picture. The remote only works once the tv has been turned on and the channel changed, both manually on the tv. The microfridge is a good idea, but there aren't enough outlets on the wall with the tv to be using the fridge and microwave all at the same time. I had to unplug the tv to heat up something in the microwave. My only complaint about the bathroom is that it's small. The clothes rack is on the same side as the hair dryer, so there isn't much space to get ready. I wasn't sure what to expect in the area of housekeeping.
The Pros: Good location. The hotel really is creekside, in fact they have a gazebo that overlooks the creek that has a nice afternoon breeze. We didn't go to the pool but it looks clean. The continental breakfast was a typical continental breakfast: coffee, juice, milk, packets of oatmeal, grits, danishes, muffins, cereal, biscuits and gravy. Good value place, especially for a family with small children. And they are pet friendly.

First off, let me apologize for the smell of your room. If you had notified the front desk, we maybe could've moved you or at the very least put an ozone machine in the room while you were away. And, I apologize that you thought the pillows weren't adequate size. If you had notified the front desk, we could've gotten you extras!!! The tv has been fixed, I depend on my guests to tell me whats wrong with the room, if anything, that way I have an opportunity to fix it or find a way to make it right!!!! I do appreciate the review & I'm glad you enjoyed the hotel location. We are currently remodeling throughout the entire property, so I do hope you'll give us another chance if ever in the area again!!! Take care & again, Thank you!!!

I am normally not big on giving reviews, but thought my stay experience deserved one. I have read several reviews and some have been mixed, but I decided to stay with my wife an 16 month old son while on vacation. The only remotely negative thing was when we arrived at 330 pm the room wasn't ready yet so we had to wait till 530, but we waited in our car impatiently. Lol. When we got to our room we were happy. It was very clean and comfy after a long trip. No dirt anywhere and smelled clean. Plus a microwave and small fridge for the room was so convenient for us for our son. The desk staff was amazingly nice especially the young brunette during the morning breakfast (which was also very good for free) who was accommodating and playful with our son. She represents the hotel very well. All in all. I would definitely recommend a stay here. I enjoyed our time there and the grounds were well kept and nice to look at. Thank you from the Shields family. You made our stay pleasurable.

Great deal for the price!!!! Room was very clean, new carpet, walls look newly painted, nice parking lot, clean pool, beautiful small peer and outdoor deck to relax on. Staff was friendly, and you get free breakfast, also you are close to many restaurants and shopping malls

We stayed at the Creekside Inn for a week and enjoyed the accommodations. The easy access to the downtown area without the expense of staying downtown made our trip more affordable. When we weren't out exploring the grounds provided a great place to relax and enjoy the weather down in SC. I will definitely return to this hotel in the future.

The grounds on which the inn are located are very pretty, right next to, as the name suggests, a creek. It's a 20 minute drive into Charleston and there are quite a few restaurants near by.

The room we had was a bit gloomy - but the sort of room you'd expect for the price point.

Breakfast wasn't very good. The seating area was far too small for the number of guests, and the food selection not great.

Overall, for a hundred bucks, I can't really complain, I got what I paid for.
