If I hadn't been so tired when we arrived, we would have left. I stood at the counter for 5 minutes listening to the staff have a personal conversation. No one came to check on the counter until I said "hello" multiple times. Then it took forever to get through the paperwork. Our room was a typical Hampton Inn room...

Outstanding hotel close to the Charleston Civic Center. From checkin to checkout the staff was friendly and went the extra mile as many were going to the TSO concert and many required a shuttle to the concert. The shuttle drivers were awesome and got us there on time and even planned ahead for after show pickup. I must not forget...

I absolutely loved staying there. It was right at the on and off amp from the interstate but at the tame time it had a nice pretty setting tucked away. It was like the gateway to Charleston. My next trip I will venture and see more of Charleston. The hotel had all amenities I needed. It had vary nice staff....

We were only there a few hours... got in around 1:30 a.m., and we left at around 10 a.m. The check-in clerk was very nice and got us situated fairly quickly. The breakfast was also pretty good. The waffles were outstanding. The sausage links were OK... The eggs were hot and there were three kinds of juices.

An enjoyable overnight stay. Great staff, clean, well appointed rooms, great location near restaurants & Charlestowne Center Mall. Will definitely return & recommend to friends & family. A nice halfway point on our way to Detroit. Friendly, helpful staff! Good breakfast after a restful sleep. I wish we had queen beds because we're a bit too tall (6'+) for full...

A thanks to the staff for making my single night stay memorable. The shuttle service to/from local restaurants meant that I tried something different and also local. The bedding, room layout and complimentary breakfast was up to Hampton's excellent standards.

Great experience every time I am in Charleston! The staff provide friendly service, the rooms are clean (even in the corners) and smell fresh. The complimentary shuttle service and free parking make it a real bargain to agency budgets as well as your wallet. The breakfast has a variety of choices and is well-stocked. This is my "go to" place...
