Well I visited the Charleston Grand Hotel on the night of 6 May 2017. I must tell you it was experience. First of all checking in was really simple and my room was on the 4th floor period they told me I had a suite. What changes a regular room from The Suite is a half wall next to the...

On a recent trip to Charleston, my friends and I looked for an affordable hotel outside of the city. We read reviews of this place, but held comments of the negatives loosely, as many people tend to over exaggerate on reviews. I can stay anywhere, I don't have unreasonably high standards, and I generally try to see the good in...

You are better off sleeping in your car. The rooms are filthy. Clearly the owners are not investing in this property. The breakfast room has flying bugs in it. When they advertise oatmeal they mean there is a packet you can add lukewarm water to. The rooms are not thoroughly cleaned. Curtains are filthy and the rooms smell. The only...

The photos online made this place look like an oasis but in reality it is just a half step above being considered a hostel. Pro-tip: Always check Google maps for a property's surroundings before blindly booking!! Pretty much everything...from the lack of cleanliness to the sound of German tourists running up and down the hallways all night!

On March 31, 2017, I had a reservation for the night at the Charleston Grand Hotel. Upon arrival at the entrance of the parking lot my husband and I were greeted by a prostitute. We drove on into the parking lot where an individual was sitting on the curb adjacent to the pool obviously smoking something more than a cigarette....

I stayed at the hotel for two nights in February and received insect bites during the stay. Upon showing these bites to the hotel manager she warranted a refund. She was unable to process a refund at the time of checking out as I had booked through Expedia. Upon contacting them, Expedia was unable to grant a refund until the...

Booked due to proximity to a music festival but so not worth it. Room smelled and was dirty. Hotel was in a very sketch neighborhood. Was never replenished with toilet paper or towels even upon request. We actually had towels removed from room and not replaced. The worst experience I've had in a hotel.

Room was dirty! Checked bed linens and mattress/box spring to make sure no bugs were there. Staff was not friendly....at all. Hotel is in a terrible neighborhood. Save yourself that "ugh!" moment and book elsewhere, even if more expensive. WILL NOT ever stay here again.
