After looking at several hotels downtown Charleston and having difficulty justifying paying such high prices I looked at this Best Western. Not only was it reasonable for the area it was close proximity to downtown. Sure, we had to drive there and pay to park in a parking garage but parking garage prices were also very reasonable. The free breakfast...

Everyone here is so friendly and helpful. Nice and quiet area. Room was clean and comfortable. Beds are excellent. TV and internet worked fine. The pool looked great.. too...

Things were just OK. Way overpriced for what you get. Mediocre breakfast. Rooms were clean. Staff was polite and friendly (depending on who was at the desk). Overall, compared to other Best Westerns we have stayed at, this was a disappointment.

This motel was just what we needed........a place close enough to downtown Charleston that we could get there fairly quickly and easily, but without the exorbitant prices charged by accommodations in the peninsula. But there were plusses we weren't expecting -- like the lovely breakfast room adjacent to the pool area, which was lush with trees and bushes, the good...

My family stayed at Best Western recently. I have a 6 year old daughter who absolutely loved playing in the pool, very cozy and well kept area. We loved the breakfast area, and it was a lot of options to chose from. The rooms were very clean, the beds are very comfortable. We had a great time at Charleston and...

My husband and I had a room in the back of the hotel in a separate building from the main hotel. Our room appeared to be smaller than the rooms in the main building. We were satisfied with the room. It was clean and the bed and pillows were comfortable.The only thing I did not like was the wall colors....

Recently stayed here on a visit to Charleston. The staff is friendly and efficient . The rooms are clean and comfortable. The property is well kept and has a nice pool. They have a large dining room and the breakfast was good. Would stay here again .

We had a nice say here. The hotel was nice and the staff was very friendly. Nice pool as well. The free breakfast was ok, but not great. The reason I am rating it as average is because our bathroom wasn't clean when we arrived and we had to clean it. Other than that, we were satisfied with our stay.

We were new to this hotel in Charleston but were very pleased with the overall comfort, cleanliness and hospitality. It is very centrally located and within a few miles of everything we wanted to do. We look forward to staying here again in the future.

We stayed here for two days to visit Charleston. Our room was kept clean but the beds were not too comfy, our backs were sore every morning. The breakfast was great and the staff always had smiles on their faces. The pool is big! But it was too cold for us to go in.
