    Free parking. Free wifi (but poor signal though).

    Weird smell (like wet dog) in the restaurant/ breakfast area on the top floor. We booked it with free breakfast, this worked via a voucher system. But we weren't told that the vouchers were for max $10 pp and the breakfast costs can be higher. Poor sound insulation, the hotel is besides 2 busy roads and traffic was well audible. View from my room at night was non-existent because a very bright lamp on the outside was illuminating the hotel and blinding you when opening the curtains. Room wasn't cleaned on 1 of the days. The map indication on Booked.net wasn't accurate in my experience. On Booked.net the hotel is located in Charleston, on the "right" side of the bridge but in fact it's on the other side of the bridge, on a piece of no man's land. This means you always need a car to go into town. You can't walk across the bridge.

    Superb

    Has a great bar/restaurant at the top of the hotel that overlooks the river and city. Also a free shuttle that runs frequently to main stops in downtown Charleston - although last pickup from town is early - about 9:45pm. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Paid extra for the breakfast which was a bargain. A great hotel if you don't want to spend the $$$ for hotels in downtown Charleston. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Charleston

    Getting in and out of the parking lot can be hazardous - it's a left hand entry into the parking lot from the middle of a freeway with cars moving in excess of 55mph

    We liked the location close to historic Charleston but not right in the middle of it. They had a free shuttle that took you down and back that ran several times per day.

    Wasn't much to like at this hotel

    The room was dirty and they didn't replenish the shampoo or conditioner. The hair dryer only had 1 setting, The air conditioner hardly worked and the bed was very uncomfortable. I have a itchy rash ever since I stayed here.

    The bed was like a cloud, the employees were friendly. They know us somewhat because we got married in Charleston. They treat us like family. Josh at the front desk and our maintenance guy was awesome.

    Worst service at a restaurant of my like in the top story restaurant. Ended up walking out after over an hour wait to get my entree.

    The service at the restaurant was actually laughable. The room was very dusty. Pretty gross

    Free parking....

    We didn't get the room we booked so my husband and I had to sleep in separate beds. The soap shelf fell off the wall while I was showering. Windows were so filthy yu couldn't really enjoy the view and the glass doors were bolted shut so you couldn't use the balcony or get a breeze.

    The restaurant staff was extra helpful and the food was very good.

    We arrived early to check in and front desk staff were very curt in responding to my questions. I was expecting to wait for the rooms but wanted to get paperwork done and go sightsee. They couldn't tell me if I could have adjoining rooms, (I'd reserved 2 rooms 2 months in advance. ) my children couldn't swim in the pool because there was a party of older adults with coolers of beer and open liquor bottles at the pool, and one of the chairs in our room was broken.

    Good

    For the price I paid,I expect breakfast. I also was very disappointed in the noise level of the roads righr below our window and the fact you couldnt get on the balcony which was something I was looking forwars to.
