Guest Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 342 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rooms not cleaned thoroughly I judge a room by its bathroom. There were hairs on the bathroom floor, tub and toilet base had scum. Water rings from cups from previous guests on the night stand. Couple of items that needed repair that had been neglected. I didn't expect that a Holiday Inn would have these issues. The breakfast was good though. August 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable and extremely convenient Stayed here for Antiques Roadshow in Civic Center based on location. Turns out exactly as convenient as promised. Very helpful front desk. Rooms a bit smaller than newer HIEs, but this is a downtown situation. If you have business or attraction in the Civic Center, or shopping in the mall planned, you couldn't do better. Free parking and free wi-fi, and proximity balance the slightly higher rate. I would definitely stay again. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cleanliness Nice Hotel, weak coffee and limited breakfast, though adequate. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greatplace to stay The staff was very helpful. The room was comfortable. The breakfast was a nice touch. We used the hotel shuttle quite a bit during our stay. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peace It had been a long day traveling from Michigan. We were able to find this hotel on my phone. It was very easy to find off the expressway. We needed peace and rest. We had a bike on the back of the car, that we were concerned about leaving there. When we asked the clerk at check in, she reassured us that they have security in their parking lot, so we didn't need to worry. It was such a comfort. The room was beautiful, beds were comfortable. Rested well, and woke up to have a fabulous breakfast. Oatmeal with walnuts and raisins, greek yogurt, and a bonus cinnamon roll. Couldn't have been better over all. August 18, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Rough stay, dirty bathroom, terrible internet connection. Helpful staff but for the wrong issue, I called regarding internet connectivity, they sent someone to fix the ac, then called after i fell asleep to see if the ac issue had been handled properly. Wow. The room was relatively clean but looked liked they didn't move chairs to vacuum.. The bathroom was pretty gross hair on the floor, stains on the ceiling above the shower and dirty hand prints all over the door. Not to mention the trashcan in the bathroom was filthy, and some of the floor tiles had no grout. All that complaining, I am not too picky, the beds were clean and comfortable, the staff was very nice, and the breakfast was good. not the worst place I have ever stayed but I probably would avoid it in the future. August 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel, very comfortable! Loved my first stay at Holiday Inn Express, I expected less and was pleasantly surprised. My room was 1/2 what the other surrounding it cost. The breakfast was mediocre, but for the money I saved, I could have eaten out! Rooms are beautiful, staff was pleasant. Beds and pillows were very comfortable! August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TOASTFEST 2014 We want to commend Julie Caldwell, guest relations, for her excellent service in making sure our group attendees' stay was complete and enjoyable. Accommodations were very nice. Breakfast buffet was more than filling and the attendants were friendly and attentive. The room bedding was firm and comfortable. Liked having more than 2 pillows (4) for comfort. Would suggest some way of directing A/C air flow. This was our 3rd stay at this hotel and we will recommend it to anyone heading to town. Hope to see you next year. August 14, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice stay Great hotel. Nice room with really good people on staff. Well worth the price and close to the Civic Center and downtown areas. August 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very clean and comfortable room The room was very clean and the bed and pillows were what we now expect at a Holiday Inn Express, very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful in reserving the room. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice place to relax Room was very clean and well kept up during my 5 day stay for convention. Breakfast choice were hot and well stocked (could use catsup, they had hot sauce). biscuits were warm and not fry, gravy was hot and tasty, cool pancake maker- just hit start and 2 small hot pancakes pop out . good choices of coffee and teas, tea water was a bit hot. parking was large. did not see a pool on location. staff responded to issues within 15 min (clogged toilet). Overall a very nice stay. August 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent breakfast-Housekeeping could improve Upon check in, everything was ready. Quick with no problems. Room was clean. Front Desk Staff was courteous and ready to help with local information and directions to restaurants, etc. We were at this hotel to attend a convention at another nearby hotel, and the shuttle driver was very accommodating about getting us there. The continental breakfast was great, with wide selection, and the staff kept it well stocked and clean. The only bad thing encountered was the housekeeping. One day, they just dropped off towels, without making beds or emptying trash. The next day they didn't come at all. A quick call to the front desk corrected this the next day, but housekeeping still failed to replenish the tissue dispenser, and left us very low on toilet paper. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent staff and room Extremely helpful and responsive staff. Well kept and comftorable room. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by co,fortable bed, room etc I enjoyed a restful sleep, the breakfasts, the wake-up call. Everything I needed was available. August 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Staff! Spouse and I stayed for 3 nights attending convention in area. Area surrounding hotel appeared at first glance to be a bit 'dicey', however it was perfectly safe and convenient for walking to the Town Center Mall. I was VERY disappointed by the fact there was no swimming pool. Since my husband was away all day at the convention, I had hoped to be able to relax around the pool some of the time. I was disappointed. Room was fine and had everything needed fr a comfortable stay. Staff was outstanding. August 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Civic Center Charleston Holiday Inn - Always Great If you want to be greeted with a smile and a comfortable place to stay when in Charleston, WV, this is the place to stay. August 10, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Holiday Inn Experience Ever I have stayed at many Holiday Inns, and this was the worst experience by far. First, we were greeted by a disheveled employer who looked like he had been sleeping (shirt untucked, etc.), but we were a late check-in so I ignored this. When we proceeded to the room there were multiple stains on the carpet throughout the room. The bathroom tile grout looked as though it hadn't been cleaned on years in some areas. The floor under the bathroom sink had multiple unkempt areas (i.e. Random hairs and particles that needed swept up). It was late and we were unfamiliar with the area so we decided to stay but skip the shower for fear of all the uncleanliness already there. As we each got into our beds loud squeaks came out as the mattresses sunk in. The mattresses have to be at least 15 years old. Every time any one of us moved it would squeak, and the springs were extremely painful. After a horrible night of not sleeping I found 1 small, quick bugs climbing on my luggage. At that moment we threw our clothes on and got out as fast as we could. Worst night in a hotel ever! August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One of the best hotel experiences I have had I was in Charleston to take the bar exam. The location was convenient to walk to the testing site. The room was very clean and well insulated so I was not bothered by noises outside the room. The free internet was great. The breakfast was perfect. If I have to stay in Charleston again I will definitely be staying at the holiday inn express. It helped make a very stressful couple of days a little bit better. August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Wonderferful Very clean, great breakfast. 24/7 coffee and ice water July 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVED IT! When I found out that we had to stay all night in Charleston, I searched on line for a Hotel - and found the Holiday Inn Express had everything we needed - and we were not disappointed! The lobby was clean and the staff very friendly. The room was cleaned, the beds comfortable and the pillows were thick clouds. The air and heat worked great! My daughter loved the spacious counter in the bathroom. The only problem we had was that the TV kept flickering, but with a quick call to the front desk, a very nice employee was at our door within minutes and corrected the problem. The hotel is in walking distance of the Civic Center and the Mall. Which was very nice. Breakfast had a lot of choices in food; and the juice machine and hot coffee was a great start for our day. I will definitely be staying there again. I give it 10 stars out of 10 July 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good people Its ok for what I paid but those problems were a pain nothing major but still might make me hesitate next time picking that hotel July 24, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by An Unexpected Disappointment My first room had a number of problems, including a malfunctioning air conditioner, and cleanliness issues, including hair and residue on the bathroom floor, severely water-stained channel guide and notepad, ice bucket without a bag, dust-encrusted air-conditioning vent, and general dust all over the room. An engineer was sent to repair the air conditioner, but it could not be repaired (in fact, he thought he was sent to fix the television). I requested and was given a new room, and before I even set down my bags I noted screws and other hardware left on the top of the air conditioner. Thankfully I was not travelling with my children - but this lapse was unacceptable and, naturally, the A/C was not working. I requested a third room, and the room was acceptable and clean, albeit still rather dusty. The shower was clean, the room generally comfortable. Some television channels showed poor reception. The hotel's location is very convenient, but the views out of the windows are nothing to write home about. My final disappointment was when I returned home and phoned the front desk with a billing question. The man who answered was difficult to understand, but I believe he was contacting a manager for me. I wasn't placed on hold and could overhear the welcoming of guests and banter between the two front desk agents and after ten minutes I hung up and called back. The woman who answered was friendly and apologetic, answered my question, and then offered to take my phone number so that she could pass it along to the GM. While I didn't feel that was necessary, I gave her my number. No one has called me back. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay, Thanks! We had a great stay. Staff was friendly and helpful with directions to the casino. Everything in room was clean and ready for our stay. Breakfast was ready and hot. Thanks again July 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty Good Hotel Great walking distance to the mall and to the river front. The over all hotel was pretty good. Not the best, but definitely not the worst hotel I have ever been in. The rooms seemed to be a little 'dated' but over all not to bad. July 20, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dirty!!!! Room wasn't clean, much evidence of previous occupants (hair!!!!) pillowcase had blood or something on it. AC unit was extremely loud! July 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Definitely Recommend Do not hesitate staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Charleston. Not only was our room immaculate and quiet, but the staff was also very hospitable. July 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Location This was the perfect Hotel if you are having a conference at the Civic Center. Just a walk across the street and you are there. Since I was there for several days, I was very happy with the fitness center in the Hotel awesome equipment. Also, the mall which is across the street from the Civic Center had several dining choices. July 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fair rate and convenient location easy access on and off freeway. close to mall. rate was fair and nice amenities July 13, 2014
