.. but if you're staying longer than one or two nights in town, another hotel would probably be better. I know you get what you pay for, but I did not expect outlets that did not work, peeling wallpaper, sheets so old and thin we had to continually refit the bed all night, a tv remote that didn't work and...

This hotel is tired and has seen better days. One elevator was working. Yo need to go next door to that hotel for breakfast. The ice machine worked but no vending machines. The furniture in the lobby is filthy. The desk clerk looks at guest like we are all dubious characters. Its right downtown---and right by the homeless shelter and...

The only good thing about this hotel is the location close to the Capitol and airport. I can tell at one time it was a nice hotel but it is ran down from the furniture to the wall paper in the room. The room I was given was next door to an empty room where the toilet ran all night....

So dirty. Linens had hairs an bugs on them, AC full of mold, only worked half the time but rattled and buzzed loudly. Bathroom nasty. Filled with water when you showered and mold around all base boards. Rug in room so dirty with clumps of dust, hair balls, lint all over carpet. Phone didn't work, neither did 75% of room...

Just 5 mins drive from the airport. Walking distance to downtown and Great food places. Free Parking. Free wifi in rooms. The staff at the front desk was amazing. She asked our requirements before she gave us a room. Guided us to the places to see around and places to eat. One of the most friendly receptions I have ever...

The Capitol hotel has the perfect location if you're wanting to be close to great activities in downtown Charleston. It is a budget stay, so don't expect anything overly fancy. That being said, my room was clean and had a comfortable bed. The staff was fun, friendly, and helpful. Breakfast was in the next hotel over, which was a very...

I chose this hotel for its great location. It is right downtown in Charleston, with most that the city has to offer within walking distance, including charming Capitol Street. The room was decent with a comfortable bed and nice pillow, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and breakfast was sufficient. I'll stay again next time I travel to Charleston.

While this hotel is in a decent location and convenient to the downtown, Clay Center, Baseball stadium, and more - we found this to be one of the worst places we ever stayed. It started out with the front desk person who, when we asked about the continental breakfast, informed us it would take place at the neighboring, Days Inn...

No frills. Clean. Easy connection to wifi which can't always be said of even some higher end places. Internet was pretty fast...a big bonus for me. Breakfast was good. Had to walk to the hotel next door though. Mini fridge, coffee and a microwave. Walking distance to all my clients and a bargain price. Not a romantic getaway with the...
