We started looking for a hotel in Charleston and everything was booked throughout the area due to the bridge run, tennis tourney, and several festivals. We started driving north and couldn't find anything... finally, by 4:30 in the morning we found this place and I begged them to make an exception about pets, promised I would keep the dogs crated, and only requested a few hours' sleep... when the front desk clerk saw how exhausted we were, she called the owner who granted permission. So, how do you criticize kindness?!?!?? These ladies were SO kind, but the hotel itself was a nightmare (considering the price of $75). We tried to turn on the heat when we got to the room and sparks flew out everywhere... the room was outdated, old, musty, smelly and stained... we didn't want the bedspreads to touch us so we were left with thin sheets and a cold room... we couldn't even charge our cell phones because the outlets were in such bad shape they jiggled when you touched them and the charges would not stay in (they were loose from the walls). Even the towels had a mildew smell. We are grateful for the kindness shown to us and hate to complain, but we definitely would not stay here again. We simply did not feel safe. I could not reach the smoke alarm to test it, but I could not see a light blinking on it either... we had to get a chair to turn the heat on... it did come on despite the sparks, but it never heated the room and I was afraid to go to sleep.
