"Not a great value. The hotel was average, but our room smelled bad. The staff sprayed an air freshener, but it just made the problem worse. The shower had drill holes in the tile. Look for a newer property.2019-08-07"

"The hotel was on Meeting Street, but I had to turn right on Reid Street to access the main entrance and valet area. The room was clean, and I liked the ceiling fan in our king suite. The staff was friendly. Quick valet service.2019-02-11"

"The hotel met our needs. Walk to restaurants and sports bars; not far from the marketplace and law school. The room was comfortable and had a nice balcony, but I didn't like that our room was at the end of a long corridor far from the lobby. We tried to go down the stairs closer to our room and ended up in the kitchen with no access to the lobby. No coffee in the lobby, but lemon water was provided. The staff was amazing. Nice complimentary breakfast. Only valet parking was available. 2016-08-26"
"Clean room, and the housekeepers did a great job. The staff was helpful and kind. Try the fish at The Meeting Place, it was awesome. The entire kitchen staff was to be commended.2015-05-08"

"Convenient to MUSC. The hotel was nice and clean, but the water pressure in our 6th-floor room was low, and there was no water in the morning. We called the front desk, but no one answered the phone. We were compensated $75. I'd stay here again because our issues with the water were unusual.2020-10-30"
"I enjoyed this lovely hotel. The employees were nice. Unfortunately, construction noise woke me up at 7 AM each morning.2017-02-25"
"The hotel room was clean and spacious. Nice workout room and indoor pool. Good continental breakfast with a variety of choices. I didn't realize that I'd have to pay $16 a day to use a parking garage, and there were no in/out privileges. 2016-01-17"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
