This location is clean and fit our needs for this trip. We were directed to the elevator upon our arrival but our room was on the main floor - not sure the desk clerk knew were the rooms actually were. Towels seemed to be a commodity as we were only given 2 towels, 1 hand towel, 1 wash cloth and...

The location was great due to the business I had in the area. Gas station across the street, restaurants and stores nearby. Walls are thin as you can hear every noise close by. One side of the elevators were out of order. Stains were on the sheets. Nice tub and bathroom area clean. Two things were disturbing: the panel door...

I was hesitant to stay because of the reviews. But it was actually a good stay. Yes room is not great looking..but it is not bad. Beds were comfortable, big bath tub, big TV with nice entertainment stand that has a fridge and microwave. They have an outdoor pool that was actually the cleanest seasonal pool we have seen.

If you or a member of the family likes trains this is the place to stay . But make sure your room faces the track (I think all even numbered rooms) .. I did not find the tracks to be too busy or too close, though they are next door. It was not like wall shaking noise.. Room was what...

Everything looks very clean and nicely arranged. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I was even allowed to get my room 3 hours early as i arrived earlier in the day. Plenty of light in the parking lot and pretty close to downtown.

I got a nice king sized room for only $50. That's a great deal! It was very clean and the front desk was very polite. My bed and pillows were very comfortable. In the morning they did not have a five star fancy breakfast but it was still nice. They had cereal, oatmeal, waffles, yogurt, and more.

Travelocity was more than awful. The very polite and generous front desk clerk had to call Travelocity multiple times because our reservation was waiting on their conformation. The woman stayed on the phone with them for at least 30 min. She demanded to talk to managers and was very determined to help us. I will update with pictures. But for...

One of the things that bothered me about this hotel is this......How can you run a hotel with the name Clarion Inn, but you're listed as Historic Grand Plaza North Charleston on the internet? Isn't this what we call false advertisement? The room service is really slack cause the toilet and tub weren't clean and we had to buy some...
