This hotel has a free shuttle to downtown which was about 10 minutes away. That and the friendly staff made the hotel an ok place to stay. It is located in the large median of a highway which was presumably a lot quiter when the hotel was built. The highway is very noisy and busy in the daytime (a least...

My husband and I were celebrating our 2nd anniversary and stayed at this hotel. The hotel is difficult to get in and out of but not as hard as some other reviews have made it seem (in my opinion). You have to be fairly aggressive during busy times of the day to get on to the road. Our check-in experience...

Thank you for choosing our hotel and I apologize for your less than acceptable experience with the front desk. I can assure you we appreciate your business and I will follow up with the front desk to find out who the unpleasant person was during your check out.

If you listen closely you can hear the ocean breeze. Just kidding, that's the traffic from the nearby highway. This place is a total dump. Don't even bother with the substandard rooms -- my walking closet is bigger! I'd expect rooms this size in a major city, but not in Charelston. Holiday Inn really needs to up their brand standards....

We enjoyed the view from the restaurant. A big plus was the shuttle in to Charleston. It was a definite plus and they could actually run it more frequently. We were also happy that breakfast was included. That was an additional plus for us.

I was skeptical to keep my reservations here due to mixed reviews, but I realized you can't please some ppl. This hotel was 5 minutes from downtown with a free shuttle to and from every hour up until 930 p.m. so you can have drinks downtown and don't have to worry about a designated driver. The restraint had great food...

Stayed for four days for a reunion. The preparation for the reunion dinner was superb. Had two dinners here with Crab Cakes comparable with restaurants down on the wharf and the Thai Salmon was seared to perfection similar to poaching with a sauce that was complementary and not detracting from the salmon flavor. The combination of the food and the...

Wife and I stayed there mid April. Room was OK. Shower pressure was acceptable. Bed comfortable. So I would give accommodations 4 to 5 stars for comfort. The breakfast buffet for $11.00 was horrible. Sausage Patties were cold and rubbery, the Bacon was paper thin and the scrambled eggs were just ok as was the selection of fresh fruit. However,...

I apologize for the restaurant not being up to acceptable standards. I will address your issues with my Food & Beverage Manager. Our location is about 11/2 miles from downtown and we do offer free shuttle service to the downtown area where most of the restaurants and shopping is located. Thank you, Bob

The room was extremely small. No closet. The bathroom was tiny and cramped. The popcorn ceiling was peeling and falling in chunks onto the floor. The bed was also very uncomfortable. The WiFi also was unsecured so it didn't work on any of our devices. When we returned from our event late in the evening, the hotel clerk did not...
