We've stayed here before. We always stay on the 2nd floor. Both sides face the rd, but the front is quieter. Lower floors are cooler in the hotter months, & they have done a little renovation of things here & there(they were putting in new mattress covers while we were checking out).
The free WiFi in room is nice & fast. Free breakfast is hot & plentiful. As long as you get down early on busy weekends, it's not too crowded. Clean sheets & duvets & fresh washed shower curtains. They gladly provided more towels for us. The staff was friendly each time. Decent small workout facility.
Only down side: we came for an event going on at the Civic Center, for this stay, which is conveniently located across the street. Great. Here's the bad part. We got a parking pass for staying. There was a full parking lot, which made it look like the hotel was full. It was from people parking for free avoiding the fee at the parking garage directly across the street. Every time it was like this.
We walked to Pies & Pints and Charleston Brewery, Black Sheep Burrito. So, very convenient.
