Feedback From Real Customers


The hotel is nice and they definitely had a great breakfast for free & nice pool/hot tub My 1st room, the iron board/iron shelf unit and sheet rock all over the area We switch room

No major problem though My only true complaint was the tiny balcony If they had a sliding door instead of one the opened out then we could’ve squeezed 2 chairs out there Sad cause the views are lovely Over all it was a nice, comfortable hotel with great views

Stephanie Lessmann

There is a nice view, and it’s close to downtown BUT there is nothing walking distance, not even water in the rooms, no food at the hotel, AC is SUPER loud and there was random hair all over the carpet! We stayed for 4 nights, on the third day we wondered why they didn’t clean our room… We asked and apparently that is a service you need to ask for

It was in the afternoon, so we asked if we could at least get fresh towels – nope, had to wait until the next morning Save yourself the trouble and stay at an Airbnb

Rachel Wolffbrandt

We switched to Springhill after one night at the LaQuinta and it was so nice! The desk staff was accommodating and extremely friendly Everything was clean and stocked And it was better priced than other surrounding hotels

The breakfast was better and they kept restocking until breakfast ended at 9 which was great! I used the laundry room which was clean, the machines worked great, and I felt confident leaving the laundry room knowing there was video surveillance Overall it was a great experience

Christina Ward

These adorable, well decorated cottages are right on the harbor, taking advantage of the cooling breezes There are two bedrooms with lovely ensuite baths on each end, which makes it super private for two couples PLUS an extra full bath off the kitchen

Everything we needed was right there We loved sitting on the screen porch watching the ships go by Very nice pool with sitting area and ocean view Lisa and staff were super helpful Highly recommend this great place!

Jonathan Brown

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottages We immediately started planning to return after one night of a 9 night stay The view was amazing and we utilized the screened in porch morning noon and night

We loved to watch the barges and many boats go by us and the tides in the ocean You have the option to order your groceries ahead of time to eliminate a trip to the store before check in We also liked the option of ordering sandwichs, chocolates, and croissants to be in the cabin when we arrived The location is great with the resort next door if you want to hang out there to eat or enjoy the live music on Friday nights Patrots point is a 5 minute walk for the tourist boats and Mount Pleasant is minutes away for shopping and more restaurants Lisa and the office staff is very friendly and helpful if you need anything or have questions about the area Would highly recommend


I’m on my last day here sadly…love it here! Cottages are beautiful Extremely clean and beautifully decorated

They really have thought of everything Bose, games, movies, w/d, binoculars…etc the views are spectacular from all the houses Rented a boat everyday right around the corner Water taxi to Charleston short walk away Perfect launching point to everywhere in the Charleston area Pool is lovely with umbrellas, music playing, sofas lounges etc Staff very nice maintenance on top of things Mt Pleasant is the perfect location close to Charleston without all the tourists Amazing restaurants and amenities minutes away Could not have been better! Thanks for an awesome time!

Jamie Rich

My best friend and I just returned from our stay We had the best time! We were on spring break from our Senior Year of college and needed a place to relax and we found it here! The rooms were very spacious and the breakfast was delicious They had a stocked fridge with water, juice, and iced coffee which was great to grab and go as we spent much of our time exploring

We loved using the hot tub as well! We hope to return soon

Monika Abbas

A wonderful place to stay for one night or a few If you can afford to spend a few extra dollars it’s absolutely worth it The breakfast is great with many options

The bathroom is fantastic, as big as the room They have a happy hour with wine and snacks and a welcome drink of tasty punch The cicadas give a marvelous concert in the evening I wholeheartedly recommend

J Senthirs

We went to Water’s Edge in for our Honeymoon and they could not have been better!They congratulated our wedding with a bottle of champagne and our whole stay was fantasticThey have a good breakfast in the morning, a happy hour (get the Folly Punch) in the afternoon, and have recommendations for restaurants and other local activitiesThe room we stayed in had a fireplace, which was great as one of the days we stayed it was cold, so that was great

The hot tub was also well kept and one of the perks of Water’s EdgeIt is like a 2 minute walk to the beach and local restaurants, so everything is walkableWe highly recommend Water’s Edge Inn to celebrate a special occassion or just to have a place to stay in Folly Beach

So I hate giving a bad review but I disliked this hotel so much, I checked out the next dayTo start on a positive note, the staff are beyond lovely and nice I had an issue at check in and they were very patient and helpful, resolving the issue quickly

The staff seemed to genuinely like working there and working with each other which is a huge plus And the location is great as a home base while you explore CharlestonMy concern is with the room I stayed in A lot of the hotels in the area are older and get a lot of traffic so I ignored some of the lack of updated features I mean realistically I just need a clean bed to sleep on But therein lies the problemTo avoid going into great detail, I found multiple things in my room that grossed me out Black mold in the vent being one of them, as well as some unsettling stains on the bed and the curtainsI’m avoiding going into great detail because I’m hoping that this was a one-time thing and that this room maybe just didn’t get the care that it needed before I checked inI will say that I do believe the hotel needs to be cautious about their ventilation, but also when you’re paying hundreds of dollars for a room, stains, dirty sheets and black mold shouldn’t be presentI’m giving it 3 stars and not lower because I feel like this oversight can be a pretty easy fix and with how nice and helpful the staff was, I believe that this issue can be rectified

Tara Guillot

This place blows Started with the toilet not working Next was the batteries and electrical ties in the drain

How did I find them? The sink filled up and when I hit the garbage disposal I heard the noise Reached in and wished I hadn’tNo extra rooms Manager left Final touch were the lights kicking on outside making it difficult for my toddler to sleep This place sucks Only redeeming thing was the absolutely lovely young Indian gentleman working the front as well as the rest of the staff The young guy was patient and very professional as well as kind Cleaning staff and front desk were hard working and extremely friendly This is clearly an ownership issue


We were greeted with a warm welcome from 3rd shift ( intern) who waited until we finally arrived from the airport to do his Audit

as an assistant GMyou are very blessed to have an Auditor with the same morale as the 1st and 2nd shiftthe morning server was very pleasantthe staff in general was exceptionalthe hotel was very beautiful in itselfand I loved the wheel of Reward Points at the front desk brilliant! All in all our stay was was perfect!!Thank you for a great experience!

Great location! Front desk staff very pleasant! However, the room smells musty; it desperately needs fresh air There is No linen service, even for a 5/day stay I was told housekeeping would clean room on day 3; but this did not happen

The carpeted hallway has not been vacuumed during my stay The elevator is extremely hot & stuffy I would recommend bring your own disinfectant if wipes & spray, a room air freshener, Room did have a small room fridge & single cup coffee maker Beds were comfortable, but sheets & pillows did not smell clean & fresh Come prepared with your cleansing wipes, disinfectant spray & air fresheners & you will enjoy your stay here If this seems like too much for you, I’d stay somewhere else

Kem Schultz

Appearances can be deceiving! Nice lobby, great location, very friendly front desk staff and I thought the hotel was clean I thought the room was fine, set up was a little unusual with back of the bed facing the entry door, but again seemed clean Best thing about this hotel was the bed! Super soft and slept great

Here is where it fell apart and reason for the 1-star rating The room is HOT and HUMID I cranked the AC down to the max allowed 65 and it was a sauna Desperately in need of a shower…worst water pressure I’ve ever seen! It was so bad I laughed If you are a water pressure nut, like me, this place is not for you!Forgot to mention there is no TV service When I was checking in there was a guest leaving and they were complaining about no TV during their 5-day stay I should have paid attention but thought how long does it take to fix TV?!Don’t believe the reviews of the in-lobby restaurant, it isn’t open Sun-Thu There is a bar, but no food during the week Now let’s talk breakfast It’s available, but resembles what you would receive at a chain hotel continental breakfast Very basic AND, it’s $13! Save your money and eat out somewhereOverall I have mixed feelings Love the bed, hated everything else I won’t be back to this Charleston hotel and I hope this review helps you make a more informed decision

Wendy Rollins

The staff was friendly and seemed accommodating However we had to ask for our trash to be taken out and we had to ask for fresh linens but never received them We stayed 5 days and booked 2 rooms

They told us they had a linen shortage but from what I seen this was likely because they only clean rooms when someone checks out and don’t bother to swap out the linensThere was a bad smell in the elevator which I believe was dirty air filter they tried to mask the smell with spray only making it worse The rooms looked clean as long as you don’t look too closely They do have a restaurant and bar and no complaints there The rooms have been updated and are nice The suite is very spacious 10 minutes from downtown and 20 from folly beach If you stay here I suggest bringing your own linens and some lysol wipes Otherwise great option for a more affordable price than downtown

Jennifer Joiner

Found Hotel Folly as a last minute decision to stay at the beach for a couple of days we were in Charleston, so everywhere else was sold out WOW am I glad that it worked out that way This type of hotel may not be for everyone, but I love the boutique style and feel of it

I would definitely stay here again!PROS: The rooms are all newly remodeled with modern, gorgeous bathrooms The bed was very comfortable and having a kitchen really came in handy (mostly for the fridge!) It has a very hippie / bohemian feel that you have to see to understand, but it is unique and is really fun We were able to walk to the beach in about 7 or 8 minutes, a little less to the shops and restaurants, so thought the location was great, especially when compared to the prices of places closer in LOVE the no hassle check in, with the code on the door, you just go straight to the room There is no “lobby” or anyone on staff there, so more like a condo in that regard, but when I had a question I emailed the person and got a very quick responseCONS: If you have mobility issues, it could be tough as there is no elevator (and 4 floors) There is a wheelchair lift to the second floor where rooms are handicap accessible, but if you just have trouble walking you may want to make sure you are on a lower floor And the only thing I noticed that I was a LITTLE disappointed in is, if you stay in one of the middle rooms all of the windows are like little square portholes that are about 6 feet high I’m 5’6″ and had to stand on my toes to see even the bottom few inches out of the window, so while the views are probably great, all I could see was sky and a really pretty magnolia tree Didn’t impact the stay, just wanted people to know when they advertise “views” that isn’t exactly true for middle rooms

Rob Peppin

We stayed here for a week while in town for work and was a very nice place The rooms are unique, pleasant and have everything you need to live out of for a weekLocation in folly is perfect, not to closes to the bars so the noise is not an issue and Everything is in walking distance!Another great thing is the hotel is dog friendly!Sunrise is stunning with the balcony rooms

Jessica Hensen

Overall we enjoyed our stay as a family with young kids The common areas and the pool were a favorite for us We loved that the pool was heated! We also loved the rooftop bar with the nice view and had dinner with our kids there two nights

The room was clean and had everything we needed The bathrooms could use a refresh/update though and the bathroom fan was very loud Overall we had a good experience and had good service from the staff The location was good and just a short drive into downtown or the beaches There is a park across the street which was nice


Charleston Marriott is quite niceThe rooms are clean, and have a nice aesthetic It’s nice having a gym with more than just a set of dumbbells

The downstairs restaurant is also nice, although I didn’t eat there, others seemed to have liked the food and the atmosphere seemed relaxed in passing The staff were very courteousMy only issue is the parking (which I included into service) Even as a guest, you have to pay to park via an app (or on a website, which is not very difficult to use to be fair) that you will see on signs around the building You can also pay to have your vehicle parked by a valet Either way the parking fee was a bit aggravating It may have been my fault when reserving the hotel, that I didn’t see that there was a parking fee However, I felt this was unnecessary When you’re paying in the hundreds to stay at a hotel per night, paying for parking feels like a punch in the gut And with the impressive size of the building, if you park at night, you will likely have a ways to walk to get to your room, which can be frustrating when you’re carrying a lot of luggage or gear for work daily

Sanket Pandit

Hotel is very good a little further from historic downtown but we knew that The lobby and common spaces are maintained excellently Breakfast buffet is reasonable for the price and kids are half price

Rooms are well proportioned and we have a sunset view over the water Bathrooms are small and I have been told that it is the same for all rooms Carpet in my room appears old and has a moist smell Perhaps need a change

I have been a Diamond Hilton member for about 6 years now I have stayed at a lot of Hilton hotels This is the first time I have felt like I needed to write a review

Very poor experience and would not recommend this place to anyone Started off by checking in and going up to my room and someone still sleeping in the room I asked if we could switch to a regular room (I had booked water front) and they said they didn’t have anything available They finally found a room after waiting for about 20 minutes in the lobby The breakfast situation here is a disaster They charge you different amounts for cold buffet or hot breakfast buffet Hilton’s typically are very easy for breakfast even if you have to pay it is always very organized and an easy process I used a voucher to the restaurant and still was charged for breakfast on my credit card All in all, the worst experience I have ever had with a Hilton hotel I will not be coming back here!

Ferrell Drewry

Good hotel Great location Nice friendly staff

Only issues were some daytime construction noise during their exterior renovation, pool was open but in my opinion unsafe due to men working overhead, and over billing for breakfast during our weekend stay The billing issue was resolved promptly when I called them from home after I noticed the issue Overall, I would stay there again due to the location It will be a great choice when their renovation is complete

Sarah Alford

The 1 Cal King was ultra modern, private, very clean, cozy and comfortable I stayed in July and was surprised at how little I had to navigate around other people (no crowded elevators) The parking deck is private and felt safe for a young woman traveling alone

Loved this view from my room too I walked down to hang out at the docks one night and it was peaceful (nobody bothered me!)

Mark Easley

If you understand this is an older property and set expectations accordingly, it is a gem The location across the river makes you as close to the city without being in the city and you also get easier access to west Ashley and Folly Beach Of course the iconic circular style of this hotel has gone out of style, but since it is across the river it has a landmark quality and the location sitting between the road is also cool for easy entry and exit

Staff was professional Rooms have been updated to the best of their ability with lots of plugs, standard furniture, and better lightingRestaurant on top won’t impress for most, but is easy to get seated and the view is spectacular Could be one of the best in the city The lunch buffet on Sunday is worth a visit Affordable and a mix of healthy items and classic American dishesIt can attract a rowdy crowd on some nights, but that is just how Charleston is You will get drunken tourists anywhere you stayWould recommend staying here Very easy access and meets the brand standards

Yi Zhao

Renovated rooms and free parkingWe like the hard flooring in the (small) room but had problem with the toilet, which did not flush well The front desk was helpful Their not-free breakfast buffet was not as good as free breakfast from other 3-star hotels

Free parking is nice; the exit from the parking lot connects to a highway (in only one direction) so it is hard (and dangerous) to exitOverall a solid 40 rating We will book it again when the price is good (we booked this time for a high price because the prices of the hotels in downtown were even higher)

Felice Hester

This establishment is the only place I stay at when traveling to Charleston I absolutely love these people!!! My first visit was when I was required to stay locally following my kidney transplant at MUSC After being discharged following a major surgery, they gave me the compassion and friendliness I needed

The smiles, kind words, affirmations truly helped me Last week I visited for the first time in a long time and they remembered me and my family! I have never had issues with my room, service, etc The location is close to downtown and offers an amazing panoramic view of their beautiful riverfront A drive to the beach is short and delightful They always give me ideas about where to eat, things to do and places to go (always dine where the locals dine!) They are in a great location, so going out is never a long trip I’ll be back in June!

If you’re going to stay in Charleston, stay at The Mills House Absolute perfection! Eating, shopping and sightseeing all in walking distance from the hotel I’ll never stay anywhere else

The staff and accommodations are top notch 🤌 Rooms clean, spacious with beautiful views We really enjoyed our stay My only regret is we didn’t try the in-house restaurant Always smelled amazing Great price point too

Susanne W

Great experience! The Bell Captain and Valet were wonderful! (Seth and John) They held my car, gave me some suggestions for the area, and were super nice! Housekeeping was also quite fab given they allowed me a extra long stay at checkout so I could hit a deadline with work Wonderful! I think they may be undergoing renovations soon

I am sure it will be gorgeous!

Unfortunately, this the second time I stayed here but sorry to say it will be my last Service has gotten extremely poor!!!There no cleaning service to the room and it was never discuss online with my reservation nor at check in We had to call the desk get clean towels

If you are not going to provide those service, guest should know upfront Also, prices have gone down but it up and we get less!!! 🤔 Are kidding me???I thought Marriott was better but it standard have fallen Definitely not worth the money 💰 Ok the staff acted like they did not care too! I’m done!

Sonia Tuttle

Our stay was wonderful Staff were friendly and very accommodating Every thing was sparkling clean and fresh

The room was excellent, including the bed Breakfast at the Bistro was so delicious, with healthy choices The veiw of all the boats in the marina was spectacular I snapped lots of photos to use for some future paintingsThank you for making our stay so special

Karen Hampton

The outdoor deck on the water made this city hotel almost feel like a resort And you are truly only 5 mins from anywhere in the city – we were visiting The Citadel The location is great for driving since it’s literally on a highway ramp

The whole “u-turn” experience was a bit novel, though! Note that because this hotel is on a highway, there is absolutely no way to walk to anything Overall nice experience and would definitely stay here again

For the price I thought the accommodations would have been a lot nicer The pool was very dirty I paid almost 1400 dollars for them to do my daughter’s wedding on the beach

All we got was 20 chairs, an arch for the couple to stand under and the officiator The arch was not decorated with anything We were told after we got there that we had to furnish the decorations Very disappointed We also had a hard time finding a restaurant that would accommodate our group of 14 We were turned away by all the ones close to the hotel even the Blu at the hotel Thumbs up to The Crab Shack Thank you guys for welcoming our entire family The food was great and the service was awesome This was the only restaurant in the area that would accommodate us

I can’t say enough good things about this place! I had my wedding there and literally everyone at the hotel who I came into contact with was so pleasant and fun to be with! They treated my whole family like their own family The food is outstanding and Tina, at the pool bar plus all other staff involved in my wedding were so awesome and attentive to me and my family our whole stay! And all the bars and great restaurants within walking distance are a huge plus love this place and will definitely be going back soon!

We came here for a long weekend on our honeymoon The room was clean and the service was great Some of the fixtures looked a little rusty but it was not totally unexpected for a beach front room

Overall our experience was fantastic We rented umbrella lounge chairs each day and it was definitely worth it It was super convenient, all we had to do was sit on a lounge chair and someone came over to us to rent the chairs We didn’t need to reserve ahead of time or anything I would definitely stay here again and would recommend to friends and family

If you have the opportunity to stay here, please do This was my first stay at a hostel and I will definitely be back 💯The booking process was easy, the communication was excellent, and the atmosphere was super chill

I slept perfectly and the neighborhood was very quietThere’s a Lime bike stand 300ft from the hostel and it made everything super convenient I parked my car in the back and rode a bike allover Charleston! 🚲

This is the best hostel I have ever been The dorm rooms are very nice, the kitchen and the restrooms are super clean It is really nice to sit on the porch at night and talk with some of your friendly roommates

The staff is also super helpful and lovely I would definitely recommend this place for anyone who would like to see Charleston on a budget

Such a great value! Not So Hostel has been our go to spot in Charleston for our last 2 trips during the Cooper River Bridge Run The location on Spring St provides an easy walk down to King St and the common room amenities are nice addition Just know that if you are a light sleeper, the beds can be a little squeaky but still very comfortable
