Breakfast is a plus and they are delicious. The room is clean and neat. The staff members are nice and welcoming. The location is great and it’s in the center of Charleston. Enjoyed my stay and the downsides included shower pressure was weak and the shampoo and conditioner were nearly empty and the shower gel was completely empty for our stay.

This hotel offered an affordable alternative to staying in downtown Charleston. About a 15 minute ride from downtown. We went to Kiawah Island and this was a very convenient location. Hotel was fine, boxed breakfast because of Covid and pleasant staff.
