          Location is very good and the staff are friendly and helpful.

          Decor is a bit somber and dated.

          Convenient to Historic Charleston

          Parking across the street - but only once. Other times parkng was available in the hotel parking lot.

          Smaller hotel in a great location in the city....can walk to everything. Happy hour a nice touch.

          Wish coffee/hot water service was available past 10pm.

          The general manager was extremely rude to us. We had talked to the front desk about late checkout 3 times. They were very friendly and said they put notes in the computer. I told them we wouldn't be out until at least 2pm. In the morning we were woken up several times by housekeeping. I was fine with that and just told them we requested late check out. The general Manager, Maureen then came to our door and demanded we open the door immediately. She began to yell at me telling me it is 1:00 in the afternoon and she is embarrassed she had to come wake us up. She said she was charging us for a half day and we had to be out by 3. We were out of the room right away after that but she still demanded a half day charge. I have never been treated so terribly by a manager before. I could understand if we hadn't told the front desk earlier about late checkout but she told me I never asked. Poor customer service. Since when do you accuse your paying guests of lying? I am so disgusted with the way we were treated. It completely ruined our nice getaway. I will never be back to this hotel as long as Maureen is managing.

          Every single staff member was friendly, courteous and had a smile on their face! Unbelievable.

          The location is great - underground parking - and a friendly staff.

          The wall in my room was quite thin. I could hear the baby in the next room cooing.

          The overall stay was great. the air condition gave me a few problems and was not sorted during my stay, but the italian night receptionist on friday night and saturday night was so kind and helped me charge my camera and went out of her way to be of service. Also the maid cleaning my room was excellent and very polite.

        • Older travelers

          The hotel was lovely, ideally suited to walk within the city, parking convenient, staff amazing, great night sleeping, and the picture doesn't do it justice. We were very satisfied.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Everything except .........

          Paying $9.75 for "breakfast", which it was not

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The hotel was close to everything. It was in the middle of town and on one side was meeting street and on the back side was king street. We loved it.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          Comfortable, convenient.

          Parking was a nightmare...had to park across the street one evening. For the nightly rate (which I understand was increased due to the PGA tour), we did not receive nearly what we should have. Should've been 1/3 the price.

        • Couple
          9.6

          Great staff and very comfortable bed. Location was great. The price was the most affordable when comparing to other hotels/inns of similar quality.

          The walls were too thin and we could hear our neighbors constantly.
