Residence Inn Charleston Mt. Pleasant
Ranked #16 of 25 Hotels in Mount Pleasant
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 November 2012

This is a great location in Mt Pleasant with convenient parking and a friendly staff. The breakfast had a variety of food that will please just about any palate. The room was clean with amenities that are better than most. If you have AAA, or any other discount, make sure you tell them when you make your reservation because they will not honor discounts after your reservation is booked. Also, beware of all the tax – make sure you add this to your room rate so you will know the final room charge. But – we love the Charleston area, love staying in Mt Pleasant and will return as often as the good Lord allows.

It's a Residence Inn, and you get what you expect at one. This one as a plus has friendly staff--southern charm I suppose--and grits on the breakfast bar. (Having once stayed at a Residence Inn on the west coast, we thought the cooker holding the grits had rice, since, that's what they serve out there.) The weeknight manager's specials could easily take the place of dinner--hot dogs, pasta, etc, along with cold beer and red and white wines, all for free. The common areas are immaculate and nicely appointed, and the location is very convenient for those looking to get around the Charleston area.

The only real gripe (aside from having to pay $75 more than usual for the first night because of a PGA golf tournament wrapping up on Kiawah Island, but, that's business) is that the windows are paper thin, and, with a room facing the roads, you will sleep the night away to the noise of trucks downshifting, police sirens, and other gentle traffic sounds. The windows really need to be upgraded I think to drown out the street, as many of the rooms face either Route 517 (Isle of Palms Connector) or the cross-street--both of which are busy, even at night. If you're a light sleeper, request a room that faces the parking lot, perhaps.

Also, apparently the hotel offers no king-sized beds, even in the two-room suites, which is what we rented; there, I'm used to one room being a king, and the other being two doubles. Here, everything's a queen-sized. It's a minor complaint.

Overall it was a great property and I would recommend it for sure to anyone looking to be in Mount Pleasant, or near the city or beaches.

We stayed her in August and not knowing that it was a convenient location to everything.

It is 10 minutes from the beach, right in the heart of shopping of Old Navy, Gap, Barnes & Noble, Starbuck's, RiteAid, Target, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's.

The 1 bedroom Queen Suite was smaller than most of the Residence Inn such as the one we stayed in Residence Inn Stockton.

The air-conditioner worked perfect. We needed it especially when it was so hot and humid.

We were in the 1st floor and the top guests on the 2nd floor were so loud that it was hard for us to go to sleep.

TVs worked great. The bed was good, but the pillows needed a replacement. They were fluffy, but once I placed my head on one, it flattened.

The bathroom was big but not enough counter space. Lots of storage space in the bedroom.

The laundry consisted of 3 washing machines and 3 dryers. The dryers were not drying the clothing properly so I had to do the cycle twice. Maybe, humidity was the factor.

Also, be sure to check the washing machine carefully. I found keys, money, and socks from others who did not check the washing machine after their wash.

Parking is small and many of the guests did not know how to park within the white lines. So, I had to find a better parking spot.

There are evening get-togethers where it was really when everyone got together. Nice people.

Overall, it's nice.

Stayed two nights and really enjoyed this property. Location is good if you know your way around. Right on Isle of Palms connector and 5 minutes to Beach. 15 minutes to downtown. Shopping close by. Scott at the front desk was very helpful.

Take it from someone who travels freqently--I cannot say enough good things about the Residence Inn Marriott located on the Isle of Palms Connector in Mt. Pleasant!

The hotel’s décor is Southern in style, contributing to the feel of being in the Charleston area. The staff at the front desk is superb, particularly Marylind, who will take excellent care of you and give you all of the tips and advice she can about the area, beaches, places to eat, and places to buy your sweet grass basket. Valerie was really helpful at our check in, too.

The rooms are gorgeous with a great sized kitchen and living room area along with nice-sized bedrooms and baths with good set ups (sink outside of the shower/toilet area.) The thermostat is automatic, allowing for easy temperature control.

This hotel has excellent location, location, location: five minutes or less from the Isle of Palms, ten minutes from Sullivan’s Island, and fifteen minutes or less to the heart of Charleston. It’s also an easy drive to Savannah, GA-well worth a day trip.

The breakfast buffet is super—hot and cold fresh fruits, waffles made to order (by you), and something different daily in the hot food area. Monday through Thursday night, the hotel sponsors a manager’s reception with free wine, beer, lemonade, and coffee and food that could be your dinner: fajitas, personal pan pizzas, chili and corn bread; hamburgers and coleslaw and potato salad. The food is adequate and worth the stay if you do not want to spend a ton of money on food. Of course, the full kitchen allows you to cook your own meals in. There are plenty of eating establishments right in the area, including Gullah cuisine near a Long Horn--this place has it all when it comes to choices of food, whether you want to stay in Mt. Pleasant or go to Charleston. Try Mosaic in Mt. Pleasant and Blossom in town. The hotel is very close to 24 hour grocery store and the hotel has a service where they will pick up items you need free of charge after you pay for your items.

The hotel has free Internet access, but I have to say this was our only drawback. We stayed in room 326 which is pretty far away from the main desk but perfect for people who want peace and quiet (it was a two bedroom suite.) The room had three beautiful, sunny windows overlooking palm trees. I found the wi-fi worked fine during the day, but in the evening the entire family had difficulty maintaining a connection. The hotel said they have state-of-the-art Internet access, but I just found in room 326 it was not reliable, particularly in the evenings. However, when it worked, it worked really well. The odd that happened is if the kids were watching TV in their room and my husband changed the chanel in the main area, their chanel would change, too, if their door was open. So we adjusted by making sure their door was shut if the chanel was going to be changed. The pool is nice although it was not always clean, but the outdoor patio area was gorgeous. You can even cook out on a grill if you are so inclined. The beds were comfortable and adequate although a bit firm for me. My husband loved them. Maid service was super and efficient. There are three high speed efficiency washers and dryers and we had no trouble washing out clothes. Cost is 1.25 per load. The hotel will give you laundry soap at the front desk if you ask.

The hotel is very close to Boone Hall Plantation--where they filmed "Gone With the Wind," which has still-standing slave quarters; but also consider Magnolia Plantation with the swamp gardens (alligators, herons, egrits, turtles) or Middleton Place with its gorgeous gardens if you are visiting plantations. Most cost 15.00PP to enter. In the city, Calhoun Mansion is a site to behold and the Nathaniel Russell House is an excellent example of a restored home with excellent guides.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat—the ambiance is great, the staff fantastic; the food completely adequate; the rooms very nice; and the location cannot be beat.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room on the 3rd floor. Our room was excellent in its location. Make use of your fro...

Too expensive, too far from the city and too far from the beach. On the plus side free Internet and parking. There is a supermarket 24x7 very near, but I believe this is not why you go to a hotel. Breakfast less than average, swimming pool to small. Service not good enough, who gives 1 small bottle of shampoo for 2 people especially as they are not servicing the rooms everyday. old fashion rooms. Less than average of a hotel, especially for the price.

Cheers

We've stayed here two years in a row for vacation and already have reservations here for this year's vacation. While residence inns are marketed to business travelers, their rooms work nicely for vacationers like us who like to have the use of a kitchen and a little more space all around. The first year we stayed, the two bedroom suite was available to us via Marriott's point system. The second year it was not, and we had to go with a one bedroom suite. The difference is profound, and if you have a sizable family it might be worth it to cough up the extra money for a two-bedroom. We LOVED the two bedroom suite.

Location is great, right in the heart of Mt. Pleasant shopping (tons of great stores, plus a nice cinema) and a straight 2 mile drive to the beach at Isle of Palms.

Finally, the full breakfast in the morning and the weeknight dinners wind up saving us some welcome food money.

We trust residence inns just about everywhere, but this is one we know from experience, and we love it.
