Restful night sleep
Check in attendant could’ve been friendlier. Breakfast was good & it was nice to see so many taking advantage of the breakfast & hearing people talking amongst each other. For the reason that I was in Charleston, it was a nice stay.

Beautifully landscaped property. On-site free parking. Copious breakfast. Very comfortable room with excellent mattress. Lovely outdoor pool which we did not have time to use.

Pretty okay
Check in was fast and they let us check in early. Someone before us definately had a dog in the room. It smelt like wet dog and we found long dog hairs in the bathroom. Im sure they would have changed our room but we were in a rush to get out the door. Toilets were good size. I think the price was a bit high, i think around 150 night.
