Myrtle Beach
Reviewed 28 December 2015

I was told I was given a recently renovated room. The front desk staff was friendly. I got lucky that it was on the first floor, so I bypassed the stairs, since I tend to overpack. The bedding was comfortable, and though Savannah Highway is busy, the location is convenient, and close to many routes for Charleston and North Charleston....

The Best Western is being redone and it is looking good. The pillow top mattresses are a real bonus and the rooms are excellent. A portion of the hotel is still under renovation and you'll want to request the area that is already renovated. It appears the renovation will be completed in the near future. The employees are most helpful...

Reston, Virginia
Reviewed 25 December 2015

We arrived without reservations on Christmas Eve. Olivia Doscher, who was working the front desk, went beyond the call of duty to accommodate us in a room that suited our needs, and book the next five nights of motels in two sates to make sure our travels were smooth, even beyond her responsibilities. We woke up to a wonderful hot...

We were in a beautiful room with a king bed overlooking the pool. It was such a pleasure to stay at this Best Western. The breakfast was the best I have had from any Best Western I have stayed. First one to have omelets either cheese or western style. It is also located very close to downtown Charleston, SC. Thanks...

We don't prefer doors to the outside or tiny bathrooms, but overall, it was clean and comfortable. That is very important to us. Would recommend this property. Instead of having a second sink outside the bathroom, we would have preferred having a larger bathroom with more counter space. We also like to have inside corridors, but that's just us. We...

Bus stop just about right outside the front door. Great if you don't want to drive into town. Breakfast was great thanks to Carol, very nice person. Olivia help us also.

We were traveling from Connecticut to Florida and was able to get a last minuet reservation. Very nice accommodations. All staff were very helpful and friendly. Also pet friendly. We stay in many Best Westerns and this is one of the best.

The room itself and staff were very accommodating. The only problem was the LOUD banging on pipes and hammering of boards at all hours. I'm sure this is not the usual just happened to be the lucky ones to book a room during a renovation period. Better luck next time,

For a stay in Charleston, this is a great value. Clean and comfortable, with friendly staff and good breakfast. Close to mid-town Charleston. Would definitely stay here again. Convenient to a variety of restaurants and the Citadel Mall.

BW Sweetgrass is in process of being rehabbed, but the construction really didn't cause much inconvenience for us as we were out being tourists most days that we were there.
