    Superb

    The location was excellent for our planned activities in that same general area of Charleston. Loved our up-grade to junior suite...nice sitting area for reading and knitting. We especially liked being able to park our car and not have to move it until we left the city.

    Disliked how the air conditioner blew on the bed each time the fan came on during the night.

    Very enjoyable stay. Hotel well located to area attractions within walking distance. Room very clean. Bathroom spacious. Had parking for hotel that was very convenient.

    Parking lot very tight. Smaller vehicles worked best, which we had. Too cool for swimming but pool was very small.

    The staff are all so helpful! Always a smile and willing to go out of their way to make your stay special.

    Might need a bit of a facelift in our room, but otherwise a great place.

    Location, room, customer service people at the desk, Dana in particular was very helpful as well as friendly.

    My debit card was billed instead of the credit card my sister gave to the clark. This caused an overdraft and a $33.00 service charge. We are in the process of getting this corrected.

    Superb

    The location is great. The staff was super friendly. The breakfast prices were reasonable.

    Since we were only two people we could pick the pillows we liked. Had we been four, two of us would had have to deal with the soft, uneven pillows. The room/bathroom would be pretty small/tight for four people. The room did not had a view. It faced a building but this way we did not have to deal with any street noise.

    Free parking was a bonus. Location is great for walking in historic Charleston. Staff is very friendly and helpful, making the stay a delight. They provide printed driving directions for major tourist sites and even for the closest gas station.

    Location was fine

    It is really just an old motor hotel. Rooms are small, old ac unit that was really Loud, cheap amenities and small bathroom. It is a 2+star and for $300 a night, I would spend more and get something charming

    Exceptional

    Great location--you can walk to all the restaurants and places of interest. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. Very good value for the money! We were less than a block away from Jestine's--an excellent restaurant with southern fare and very reasonable prices--be sure to try it if you stay at the Inn. The hotel had complimentary cheese and crackers in the afternoon and cookies and tea in the evening--nice touch!!

    We had a room with a door adjoining the next room and our neighbors were noisy at night. This is not the fault of the hotel, but it was a nuisance to us. The location of the elevators was not convenient for the location of our room. We either had to go through the parking garage or walk outside by the pool to get to the lobby. This did not diminish our enjoyment of the hotel--I would ask for a different room location next time.
