Getaway to Charleston

There is nothing too fancy about this place. The driveway of this hotel can be a little confusing because it's a one way and the parking lot was usually flooded at night. It sits along the Ashley river, the view is not impressive, but there is a view. The staff was informative, but not necessarily warm. There is a free shuttle but it doesn't run 24/7. Its not far from downtown, but definitely not walking distance or walking friendly. Its just outside downtown. Not a bad place to stay for what you pay.

Charleston Holiday Inn Riverview

The staff was very friendly and accomodating when we checked in. No hassles and the process was quick and easy. Room was with a great view of the Ashley River, bridges and Charleston. Nice view as we stayed on the 9th floor. Almost a 180 degree view. I liked the bar and restaurant on the roof. Pretty much the same view but higher. I appreciated the work out room on the 3rd floor. They have 2 trend mills and one paddle mill. You can run or walk and watch TV too. Weight machine on the other side was nice. I would stay at this property again.

Good location, decent hotel

The location was perfect for getting in and out of the city of Charleston. The staff was informed and helpful. The room was ordinary. The beds and pillows were not very comfortable. Ultimately a good experience for the price.

Down town Charleston has fantastic restaurants, just a few miles away. Great city to visit. The beach is within 15 minutes from the hotel.

Needs some work but staff friendly

The rooms look more rennovated in pictures. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is a little difficult for entry and leaving the hotel.
