"Good Value for Charleston"

I was almost afraid to stay here after reading some of the reviews. But we found this hotel to be clean, the staff was friendly, our room was spacious and comfortable with microwave, mini fridge and a nice view of the marina. It's only a couple of miles to the Historic District and about a third of the price for the hotels there. This hotel could use some upgrades (new carpet, etc), but we found it to be clean and comfortable. A good value for Charleston.
Not a fancy hotel, but it is clean and affordable. The location of the hotel is very convenient and the marina views are nice. Quality restaurant within walking distance making it an easy location for business travel.

We stayed here on a recent trip to Charleston for a night and we were disappointed. The room they gave us was right beside the elevator and boy was it loud. The toilet would barely flush and in fact you would have to flush it two or three times to get it to all leave the bowl. This was the thing that infuriates me more than anything. The staff was pleasant and nice so nothing with them at all. The place is old and needs to be updated. The view is a very nice one but just did not like this hotel and was not the cleanest room. The comforter had a couple of spots on it. The breakfast was good the next morning but very crowded in a small area. The staff did try to move us to another room due to the noise of the elevator but the people across from the other room had a dog and it was barking the whole time so we decided not to move rooms. Not a fan of hotels that allow dogs due to the barking. The staff did try to work with us though so nothing can be said about them not trying to help.
I stayed here during a family reunion. The rest of the family stayed at a nice airport near the airport...I stayed here because I brought my dog. I rely on La Quinta when I travel with my pet, and some locations are rather nice. Some have taken over older hotels so they are not so nice. I believe that case the case with this one. The room was very dated.
I requested and was given a harbor view room. Unfortunately, the one small window all the way in the corner of the room (why couldn't it be centered) did not make the view easy to access. There was a large wardrobe on one side of the room that took up much space. The room was rather small. The beds were very comfortable.
We were given the top floor which wasn't too convenient when taking the dog out to do his business. And the elevator floor was filthy. I had to prevent my pet from licking the floor.
The location was very convenient...only 5 minutes from downtown. Also easy access to Folly beach. This must be why the hotel was so expensive. Fortunately, I was able to use reward points. The hotel is also next to a large historical restaurant/club that used to be a fort. It was really busy. This was the only eatery within walking distance. The boats docked in the harbor made for much activity in the area. There is plenty of available parking. The breakfast was typical La Quinta fare.

My expectations going in were not very good at all recognizing that this is your typical Hotel/Motel chain, but this LaQuinta was worse than those expectations on every level. I hate when that happens. The one positive was the staff was courteous and friendly, and to their defense, it is obvious that this LaQuinta is highly understaffed. I expected a clean room, but it was only spot cleaned at best overall, and the bathroom was dirty. The carpeting was filthy, and the room had poor ventilation. The AC unit was inefficient as it was always running even at room temp. Parking after sun down will require a long walk back, as their additional parking lot is on only one side of the building. I actually found the very last spot in the entire lot at the time, which was right near the outside edge of the lot, parked next to a truck with a trailer carrying a large boat. They offered complimentary breakfast and coffee (which I really could care less about) as I am always more concerned about the cleanliness and up-keep of the hotel itself.....and that just couldn't be found at this particular LaQuinta. I would not recommend this LaQuinta to any potential guest, but I would recommend the management to make every effort to improve the cleanliness and maintenance of their hotel. The carpeting could really use a serious steam cleaning too.
