We spent 3 nights at this hotel because it offered a reasonable price nearest to the purpose of our trip, but we will not stay here again. The carpet in our room had not been vacuumed in quite some time, so we requested that it be done. It was, and then when we returned to our room later in the day, the vacuum cleaner was outside our door. Was this an oversight, or a message that we were to vacuum the room ourselves for the rest of our stay? We also noted that empty salt/pepper papers were on the hallway carpet for the 3 days we needed to stay, so I'm guessing the housekeeping staff is not instructed to vacuum the hallways either. Also, the landscaping hadn't been weeded in a long time, which may be a minor issue, but it speaks to management's neglect of details that say "This is a well-cared-for, clean hotel". One last thing, pets are allowed, so we had to listen to a barker next door!! Next time I have to go to Charleston, I will pay a few extra bucks and stay somewhere cleaner.
The nicest thing I can say about this La Quinta is that the harbor view was spectacular.
I arrived there around 5:15 p.m., checked in, and saw that the room had NOT been cleaned.
AT ALL. A housekeeping lady was there, and left a card stating that she'd cleaned it from top to bottom, but it was obviously to me that that hadn't happened. Call me crazy, but I just can't get lie down in a bed with other people's bodily "items" all over the sheets. Had to go get sheets and change the bed myself. But like I say, beautiful view of the marina. I give this hotel a rating of 2 circles only because everyone was very friendly and courteous. Won't visit again.
This hotel is fairly good located, as Downtown Charleston is right across the bridge. As far as i remember, they offer bus shuttles to Downtown, but we were using our car.
The room wasn't that clean and it can get pretty loud due to the main street next to the hotel.
The harbour is beautiful at sunset and you should definitely try the restaurant which is right next to the hotel!
The hotel is conveniently located for tourists wanting to do the sights, and our room was comfortable with a working air conditioner.. But the place badly needs maintenance and repair, a lot more cleaning, and better supervision of staff. For example, breakfast staff were almost an hour late one morning, when we were particularly eager to make an early start. Management seemed to be the problem here!
I saw bad reviews here but with dogs choices are limited. This hotel did not charge a fee for dogs.
People at the front desk were extremely nice and helpful. There was another man they worked here(not sure where) and he was very helpful also.
The main problem is with the housekeeping staff. The hallways are dirty. When we entered the room I wanted to check carefully after all the bad reviews. The carpet looks liked it hasn't been vacuumed and it needs it. There are some minor stains on the bedding but I just hope they were washed. When I lifted the sheet off to check for bugs I found a crumb from a chip.
There were only hand towels here when we got to the room. The nice gentleman got us some bath towels.
The top of the toilet was very dusty like nobody had dusted in a while.
We went out and when we came back I noticed what looked like the corner of a playing card sticking out from under the bed. When I picked up the bed skirt I found cards and candy (see included photo).
I also found a dead shriveled up caterpillar on the wall.
I guess it will do for the one night we are staying. I'll see what the breakfast looks like in the morning.
I feel sorry for the people who have to work here and hear all the complaints that they must get.
