Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Martiv1 worst bed ever
The mattress and the linens were the worst I have ever experienced. The mattress pad was so hard I ended up taking it of in the middle of the night. I asked to have them changed and they were replaced with the exact same thing. Both mattresses had indentations in them, I guess they were really old.
The staff was polite and the breakfast was nice.

Very nicely appointed newer hotel with very comfortable, clean rooms. Desk staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Complementary breakfast was great. Used the business center and Wi-Fi were both very good. Highly recommended. Stayed here for 2 nights then moved to the Francis Marion for 3 nights. Should have stayed here the entire trip.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kramer60 We did not have a good experience.
The lobby and hallways smelled like smoke.
The room was very damp which made everything including our clothes feel wet.
The tub didn't drain well. We would be standing in a foot of water during our showers.
Our room wasn't cleaned every day.
On a positive note, the staff was very friendly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nonnaof2 Clean & Close to Downtown Charleston
Clean & very good breakfast. Close drive to Downtown Charleston & other tourist destinations around the Charleston Area. Only negative was uncomfortable pillows. We even asked for all firm pillows and they were still very soft. Water faucet pressure in bathroom was very low. Other than those negatives. A very nice hotel!

One of the reasons we stayed at your hotel was the reviews telling of great service. We found this to be very true. The ladies at the front desk were very helpful, giving us written directions to restaurants, sites, etc.
The only negative was it rained and rained - but we do not have any control over the weather.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smellyellie Great for weeknight stays
Good location, close to downtown but not right in the thick of the horrible traffic. Clean, comfortable rooms and plenty of parking. It rained the whole week we were there and the room was a little damp, but otherwise, all good. Outdoor pool was adequate, nothing spectacular. Weeknight rate was affordable, but the weekend rate was nearly as much as the hotels in the downtown area.

Couldn't have been happier with our visit. From the folks at the front desk to the cleaning crew, the friendliness and helpfulness was off the charts! Breakfast was great and location superb for our paticular party. Felt safe and immaculately clean. Only downside was lack of more than one washer. Otherwise great! Fully recommend.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy0819 Maid service
We stayed 4 nights in the hotel and did not get maid service 2 of those days. We had to go downstairs to get more towels. The staff was friendly and apologized for the inconvenience. The room was a reasonable price except for the stay on Sat. night. Quite expensive compared to the other nights.

With a great breakfast, clean rooms and wonderful service I highly recommend this motel. We had 3 rooms of relatives there and everyone was impressed! Its in a great location to Charleston and all the nearby beaches. I will definitely stay there from now on when I visit Charleston.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyHokie Great Cruise Deal
My wife and I were heading out on our first cruise, departing from easy-driving-distance Charleston. We also scheduled an extra day to tour around the city before departure. This hotel was in a decent location at a good rate. The bonus was the "Don't Miss the Boat" package. We were able to leave our car parked at the hotel for the duration of our five-day cruise -- for free! This saved a considerable sum charged to park at the pier. We were whisked to the port in a taxi (part of the hotel package) and dropped off right at the entrance, avoiding the line of cars also arriving. When we returned, a phone call had the taxi waiting to pick us up for the quick trip back to the hotel to retrieve our car. The hotel staff was quite helpful in making the shuttle arrangements and extended our check-out time to accommodate our noon shuttle pick-up. During our two-night stay, we were pleased with the comfort of the beds and the quiet of our room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Micki13 Extremely Comfortable and Relaxing
The staff was exceptionally nice and professional. The night staff and I watched TV in the lobby when I got up in the early hours of the night to get the laundry done. The beds were amazingly comfortable and exceptionally clean like they were brand new - one primary reason for staying at Holiday Inn Express exclusively as well as the breakfast. The pool was clean and comfortable temp. We had been traveling for days and the beds were so comfortable, my husband wrote down the name and type so we could get them for home. The breakfast is always good at these hotels; however, we're both diabetics and it is heavy on the carbohydrates which is bad for diabetics (bacon, eggs w/ cheese, heavy on breads and gravies). They do offer oatmeal, yogurts, fruit and toast so alternative option is there but would be nice to have turkey bacon option and eggs with no cheese. We stayed at another hotel chain in Florida because the HI Express was full and the difference was drastically apparent - we could not sleep at all the entire time and were in pain the next day. We love HI Express and go out of our way to only stay with them. Great stay!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hcat51 Very comfortable Bed
A very nice Hotel however, The maid service left a lot to be desired. The maid made the beds, put fresh towels and emptied the garbage. That's it. empty bottles, candy bar rappers etc. sat where they laid for the 5 days I was there. Other than that an excellent value for a stay in a wonderful city. A little far from downtown but that's why the great price. Cheaper than most Holiday Inns.

Great clean room, fine pool and Oh so quiet.. The staff especially Sherry were excellent. Only the maintenance guy could lighten up a little.
Breakfast OK except again , the pancake machine was not working. Also there was just one hard to operate toaster for all guests to line up in front of. Nicely on the edge of town with easy access to the city.However I definitely plan to go back to Charleston and this is where I will be staying.

The staff and the property were excellent. I had my elderly mother with me who was handicapped and the room on the first floor was great giving us the ability to be near the lobby and breakfast outside the room was helpful. What a wonderful experience and very helpful staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by history123 Excellent Stay
This Holiday Inn was a great location to go to the Plantations and also fairly close to downtown. And it's a much greater value than staying downtown. The room are very nice and clean and the staff is helpful. The only downside is that the breakfast is not stocked right up until the end of the time period it is served. The first day they were out of eggs, silverware, plates and many other items. There is a good variety but most other Holiday Inn's stock the items until the breakfast closes. However, I would stay here again and recommend it to others. And they welcome you as a Priority club member and give you a gift as well!

I had left Myrtle Beach, S.C. on Monday May 27th and arrived in Charleston S.C. around 10.am that morning. I went to check in and the lady who checked me in stated that she would be able to get me in a room around 12;30 that day.I told her that I was pretty tired and she checked again and got me into a room right then. I really appricated that and was well rested for that night and the next when I traveled to South West Florida.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mandcabel1 Bed was too soft, compared to other HI's we've stayed at.
Our experience with Holiday Inns is excellent overall, but the beds in this particular hotel were too soft for comfort.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jen13duh Great stay, great staff!
Our stay was better here than at our Resort in Myrtle Beach! We had our 1 1/2 year old daughter with us, and they provided a crib in the room free of charge. They also allowed us to check in when our room was ready, which was 3 hours before scheduled check-in time. The staff was super friendly, even holding the elevator for us, and helping my daughter walk on the elevator while my hands were full with breakfast (She didn't want to walk past the gentleman, she was nervous, and he reached his hand out as to take hers, and she took it, walked right on the elevator!) I would stay here again and again! Room was clean and neat, pool area was clean, breakfast was good! Great value, great stay!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skay Quiet sleep; convenient location
Had great rest here. Convenient to plantations, restaurants and downtown as well. Cleaning staff extremely helpful. I ended up sick and spent one day in bed. They were very kind to my husband with clean towels, coffee, etc so as not to disturb me.
Only problem, the breakfast and one staff member. Cold eggs, no meat, no fresh fruit and she said it was "meatless Thursday." Same on Friday. Other days everything kept hot and meat offered with enough fruit to go around. Actually seemed maybe the food was going home with someone.

The staff was amazing. Each person we came in contact with was outstanding. The location was a great value versus staying in the downtown area for visiting all the stops in Charleston.
