"Nice hotel but it’s no resort."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Been staying at this hotel for many years and recently the price has gone way up and they now charge a resort fee and require valet parking which I was not fond of. I had a lot of luggage due to traveling with small children and it was very stressful having to unload and reload my trunk while cars are waiting behind me. Also not knowing where my car is in the middle of the night if I happened to forget something. Upon check out were standing at the valet booth with three small children and a cart full of luggage for the valet attendant to ignore me and help two other ppl ahead of me then look straight at me and walk back inside. A few minutes later another person walks up and he comes back outside and proceeds to help her in front of me as well. I had to speak up and say I have been waiting here for a long time. Although the hotel is nice and has undergone improvements this parking thing will probably make me find another place to stay on my frequent trips to the Charleston area.

"There was a lot left to be desired."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The hallways were filled with a pungent fragrance making it seem as though they were trying to cover an unfortunate smell. The water pressure in the shower could use some help as well. Other than that, it served it's purpose and we had a place to sleep. The staff was kind and professional.

"Bad"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
After checking in and entering my room, I discovered one of the front desk employees in the bathroom taking a dump. I was upset to find someone in my room with the the bathroom door lock and confronted the front desk only to find the employees were rude and not willing to offer much explanation as to why this happened. I have received no communication, feedback or formal apology. I will never go back to the hotel and will recommend to anyone I know not to as well.

This hotel was fine, it provided the main comforts. However, the breakfast was continually out of things and took a long time to refill. In two days of being gone from our room between 8am and 6pm, our room didn’t get cleaned either day. We had to call request new towels and the garbage taken out.

"Very Nice!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I was staying here overnight because my dad had to have a procedure done at the VA early the next morning. I booked the room for one night and was unsure if I was going to have to stay a second night or not. When I arrived the the hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and had everything I needed. If you didn't have what you needed or had forgot something all you had to do was ask and they had it. The next day I found out that I did not have to stay the second night so I asked if I could cancel my room at the last minute. They were very nice and canceled it with no problem. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone.

Overall Score2.0/ 5
Our king bed room was very small. We found the desk staff very unfriendly and not welcoming. There was a fire alarm while we were there. The staff did not look after the guest's comfort nor did they try to help those guests who were checking-in to get to their rooms or make any helpful suggestions. Plus our telephone in our room was not working.
