Room Cleanliness Unacceptable

This hotel appeared to be a good value with all the basics and in a close to downtown location. Unfortunately the room cleanliness was so poor, we cancelled our reservation upon arriving. Sadly, we were shown a total of 3 rooms all lacking in basic sanitary conditions. There was hair in the bathroom, crumbs on the table, dust on the lamp that hadn't been wiped down in weeks, etc. A phone charger was also left in the wall, giving us the indication that the rooms must only be refreshed with new linens and towels after the prior guest departs. And that's even with a card placed in the room saying the room had been cleaned with pleasure by a specific individual. The hotel staff was accommodating but unfortunately does not require or enforce their cleaning staff to adhere to basic cleaning on a regular basis for each new guest that arrives and checks in. Based on our experience, we never plan to make a reservation at another LaQuinta Inn.

OK at best

The location was great, easy access to downtown as well as the beaches in the suburbs. Half of the hotel has rooms with doors in the hallway while the back half of the hotel has rooms where the doors face outside (motel style). I was stuck with a room in the back, looked like it had been empty for awhile. Everything was dusty. Room is standard, but the lack of cleanliness got to me.

Great Waterfront Hotel

Everyone was friendly and the hotel was nice. You are there on the water with a view of many boats.

Definitely not a 3 star hotel/motel

The hallways inside the hotel were filled with piles of guests dirty laundry before dinner- very nasty. Staff seemed disgruntled. Exterior motel room entry door had gap in it was concerned about bugs coming in. Cleanliness was way below par. Tub was not cleaned. Desk chair was dirty, no fan in bathroom, tub was clogged, bath towels were like straw, did not choose to eat free breakfast due to the overall uncleanliness of La Quinta. Would not stay at another again.

Covers the basics

If you're fortunate enough to end up in the main building (interior doors) your experience would undoubtably be more pleasant than the annexed building with exterior doors: the floors in the hallways are disgusting: litter everywhere, dirty and not appealing at all. The room was a pleasant surprise though. Also, the (busy) road side of the hotel can be noisy. If you end up on the marina side, count yourself very fortunate.

Convenient to major arteries. All but one restaurant (quite pricey) requires a trip. Came for business, and didn't need more than bed and shower. It delivered.

great location by marina,

Friendly and accommodating staff. Hotel is older but clean. Nice pool. Scenic location beside Marina. Great proximity to downtown Charleston and to Folly Beach, James Island. Easy driving access. Restaurant with great view of marina and Ashley River and good food beside hotel.

Restful vacation

I had the most restful sleep at this motel. The beds were super comfortable . The breakfast was good. Entergy to begin the day. Will definitely pass the word to stay at this motel.

Great location, a little disappointing

Overall, our stay was fine. Our room was located in a detached building with an exterior door that opened to the noise of the James Island Expressway. The air conditioner blocked it out so not too bad. Also, the coffee machine was broken so we had to go out to get coffee to go with our breakfast. The outdoor pool was nice, and the location was great to get to Folly Beach.

Overall fine, a bit disappointing

We had a nice stay, but our room was in a detached building with an exterior room that opened to the noise of the James Island Expressway. The air conditioner noise covered it up pretty well. Also, the coffee machine was broken at breakfast, so we had to make a coffee run. This is a great location to get to Folly Beach. The kids enjoyed the outside pool.
