Extended Stay America - Charleston - Airport
Ranked #37 of 60 Hotels in North Charleston
Reviewed 1 October 2005

I'm giving this new review a Neutral/Average just because it is normally a good place to stay. Perhaps things will change in a few weeks of this review dated Oct. 1, 2005.

Some New Orleans evacuees were put up in this hotel. From reports from friends the noise all day and all night was terrible. Lots of yelling in the middle of the night, kids running all over the place, people trashing the place, etc.. Maybe this is what we get for letting our government throw money at a problem. Free everything.

This hotel is also used as a transplant hotel after surgery at MUSC in Charleston so patients can be monitored. I know someone who just had a transplant and was trying to recuperate and get some much needed rest.
Unfortunately the evacuees could care less. This is a very sad situation when people who get suff free have to be so ungrateful and inconsiderate.

Stayed: May 2005

I had a successful kidney transplant March 14, 2005 in Charleston at the MUSC campus. After 3 days in hospital my caregiver and I were transferred to the Homestead Suites in North Charleston for recovery and checkups. We couldn't have been more pleased with this hotel and we return every other week for Sunday nights for my clinics, labs, and followups at the transplant center on Mondays.

The desk staff are polite and do a great job. They are always willing to please.

The rooms come in about three different configurations. We prefer two double beds. There are three floors with elevator. There is a large refrigerator (turn the icemaker on), toaster, microwave oven, stove, dishwasher, and plenty of dishes and utensils. You can go about a 1/4 mile down Montigue to a Piggly Wigley grocery store. The rooms are comfortable and exceptionally clean. You get plenty of towels and soap for the dishwasher. The beds are quite comfortable. The place is quiet despite being close to an air base. All exterior doors besides the front entrance are secured for your safety and are opened with your room passcard.

There are a few decent restaurants nearby such as Picadillys buffet, but you may want to go west a couple of exits on 26 for a lot more choices. There is a McDonalds at the beginning of the road to the hotel.

There is not much in the way of recreation as this is mostly an industrial area. We see several military personnel at the hotel as they work at the nearby air base. They are very polite and I always enjoy meeting them. There is a SAMs wholesale club close by

There is an indoor pool that is extremely small and I don't advise using it as the heater is broken. They are planning a new outside courtyard larger pool so that should be great. There is also a workout room with a TV, treadmill, stairstepper, and bike.

This hotel has a room where you can buy simple prepared foods that can be microwaved and also toiletries. This is on an honor system and you fill out a card showing your room number and what you selected.

Near the front desk there is lounge area with free coffee and tea and sometimes juices. They often have some free breakfast items like waffles and bagels and sometimes in the evening they have some free snacks. This is a very nice addition.

The drive into the city of Charleston takes about 20 minutes. The traffic at certain times can be busy so you should be sure of your route in advance. The traffic moves briskly. A nearby beach is called Folly Beach and is about a 15 minute drive from the city of Charleston. We went out there once and were not impressed at all.

I live in the Upstate of South Carolina (Anderson) which is about a 4 1/2 hour drive to Charleston. We are leaving tomorrow morning for our regular Sunday stay at the Homestead suites. Patients of MUSC get a special rate.

Overall, if you are in North Charleston on business, in the military, just passing through, or a MUSC patient like me you will enjoy this hotel. If you are a Charleston sightseer you may want to find a place closer in.
