This was our first trip to Charleston, and we will definitely be back. Josh, at the front desk, was so helpful and welcoming and gave us several great suggestions as to where to eat, and places to visit during our stay. Our room, which had been recently renovated, was clean, quiet, and the beds were very comfortable. The location was...

Would rank this Best Western as one of the best that we have ever stayed at. It was very clean, the rooms that we understand have been completely remodeled were excellent. The location to visit downtown Charleston presented no problem. Would definitely stay here again when in the Charleston area

We stayed at this hotel the night before our cruise. We used the shuttle to and from the port and the free parking while we were gone. Everything went very smooth. Breakfast was good and had lots of choices. Our room was clean and I loved the vaulted ceiling and two sinks. Bed was very comfortable. The front lobby was...

We booked a night here to take advantage of the free parking and shuttle service to the cruise port. The hotel lobby was under renovation, but we didn't hear any construction noise etc. I booked online and did not realize that the shuttle service was per person. For some reason I did not see where I had to list how...

This is a great alternative to paying higher prices closer to town. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was large and clean . The breakfast dining area was not only larger than most , but more importantly the breakfast was more than ample and the staff took exceptional care to make sure you were satisfied. Even though...

Our rooms were so recently renovated that we may have been the very first guests to use them. The mattresses have a memory foam layer and are exceptionally comfortable. There is a large flat screen TV, fridge, microwave and a reasonable amount of storage. The draperies fully black out the room. Everything in the room is new and the heating/cooling...

We didn't plan on staying over in Charleston but needed a place to stay after a very stressful day. The room was clean, comfortable and really quiet. We got a very peaceful nights sleep and a satisfying breakfast the next morning. Got our AARP discount, too. I'll be back for sure.
