"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"

"An absolutely stunning hotel. A grand entrance led to a magnificent front desk, and the room was beautifully decorated. I parked up the street instead of using valet parking.

"Just across the street from the historic market. We had a lovely suite by the courtyard. Unfortunately, there was no hot water the morning we checked out, but the clerk deducted the cost of the entire night. From the bellboys to the bartender, everyone was polite and helpful. Great hotel; we'll certainly stay again.2016-01-21"

"A lovely, charming inn. Great location and excellent service. The room needed better lighting, though; I turned on all the lamps and it still seemed too dark. More pillows would've been nice since the two on the bed weren't plump.2015-09-17"
"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"

"The hotel was overpriced for the quality, and parking cost extra.2021-03-31"
"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"
I have never found a hotel booking site so easy to use. I had my room booked in less than a minute. The hotel where I had planned to stay had an issue. I was panicking. I clicked on HotelGuides' website, got a room, and checked in 15 minutes later.

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.
