Outdated. No room service!! We had to ask for towels and no one came to the room to replenish towels, soap, shampoo etc at all while we were there. Room smelled awful . The “amenities “ shown online such as checkers, shuffleboard etc were so faded and that area was nowhere near as nice as picture shown online .... disappointed for sure. Only plus was it’s on the beach

The location was good for the beach. You need to factor in 20 min each way for back and forth travel into Charleston. The beach there was nice. Great shallow area for kids. The staff was so-so, not super hospitable but not nasty either. Everything was clean in the room, but the room was very humid so things felt damp and wet towels never got dry. Parking involved a walk and unexpectedly cost $7.50 a day. I don’t remember Travelocity pointing that out.

The hotel itself was good and the location was great. When we booked online we were told it was pet-friendly and we could have a room with two queen beds. On arrival, they surprised us with a pet fee and we were given a room with only one queen bed because that's all they allow when you have pets. None of this information was online, either on Travelocity or their website. I was disappointed with how that was handled. This information needs to be more available.

The hotel staff was super nice. The loud guests at 2am both nights made it difficult to sleep.

Great location, comfortable bed, and friendly staff. Breakfast is ok, every morning was grits, eggs, cereal, boiled eggs, yogurt, and muffins as options. Cute decor, looked recently updated. The cleaning was just not up to par most days, the massive amount of condensation in this hotel led to quick growing mold on the walls and ceiling and even light fixtures. One night I got cleaning supplies from the front desk and wiped down the walls myself. The nice woman at the front desk made a note about it and said they would clean it thoroughly the next day, they did not, we had big black spots on the ceiling the entire stay! Be carful, both of my girls fell during our trip on the wet floors and walkways! We had to lay towels all around the room. We have stayed at many many beach hotels and this is the most condensation I have ever seen, it’s manageable, just be prepared for it. We also didn’t get clean towels on two days of our stay, we had to go request them from staff. I was told they were having a laundry “issue” but I didn’t ask for details. Staff was very friendly however, and sweet to my girls.

Hotel review

Had a weird smell the refrigerator didn’t keep the drinks cold and it needed a cutting to block out the sunlight. The blanket had spots on it not sure if it was a stain or hadn’t been washed. For the price it was good

What a wonderful way to celebrate a wedding! Getting the opportunity to get the whole family together, and enjoy the beach sounds like such a great start to the bride and groom's future together.

The bed was comfortable. The staff was great. The view was amazing. Such a relaxing atmosphere. The only problem rooms have a strong smell of pinesoil. Witch made it hard for me to breath.
