Stay Somewhere else

The hotel boasts of a riverview, but your view is a boat dock. The staff was less than friendly and caring. The room was dirty. Pills lying on the floor of the bathroom and near the bed. The sound on the tv was set at one level and could not be changed. The free breakfast was limited and the area was not kept clean of well stocked. There is a Staybridge hotel right across the parking area and has to be better than this.

Good value for the money. The hotel is definitely showing it's age, but the location is great. We have stayed there many times and have found the staff to be friendly and always helpful. We will stay there again.

Not what LaQuinta is knowed for

Room was very basic. Needed painting and bathroom had mold growing on the ceiling. I've stayed in quite a few LaQuinta hotels and this was certainly not up to the quality and standards of others. I thought the price was reasonable when I booked it, but I was wrong. Rooms were more like a Econolodge or Motel 6. I was very disappointed and would not stay there again.

Staff Needs Customer Service Training - WiFI ???

Hotel is very old and in dire need of an update. It is in the boonies and difficult to get to and from due to its remote location and numerous bridges in area. No where to walk to in area, no local place to eat or get groceries without a long drive. Weak WiFi and drops signal often. Very basic breakfast, scarce choices for items, the least I have ever seen at a LQ. Staff are not well trained nor customer orientated. Outdoor pool requires cleaning .

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

If you are going to stay in Charleston, get a hotel in the City. For a few $ more you can get a nice room in the City. There, you can use the free trolley system to get all over the city where there is a lot to do and great dining. I recommend that you not plan on driving around Charleston in the older parts of the city. The roads are narrow and very congested. Parking in the city is scarce and expensive. Go to Angel Oak on John's Island (10 miles out of the city) it is worth the drive to see this giant 1500 year old Oak. Go see the Yorktown, quite a sight. The parks in the city are great, the local folks are friendly and helpful and show pride in their city. Beautiful old homes, great places to eat and shop all over the city.

A less than expected experience

Our previous stay in April at the La Quinta was pleasant. However, the hotel seems to have deteriorated since then. The room and its furnishings were worn, there were marks on the walls, and an entire bank of lights were out in the bathroom. The maid service was also lacking. We had to ask for nearly everything, including refreshing the in-room coffee service and restocking the toilet paper. I am not sure we will stay there again.

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.
