Beware of excessive pet fee!
Needing a pet friendly room for the night I searched on for nearby properties that were pet friendly and found this location. Having found on a previous trip that the search results can be imperfect in this manner I called the property to confirm that they were indeed pet friendly. Having received a positive reply I booked the room and arrived to check in with a not so pleasant surprise when the desk clerk informed us that there was a 100.00 non-refundable pet fee. Since this was the same clerk I had talked with I asked if she thought it might be appropriate to inform me of this when we talked earlier. Given the late hour we decided to pay the fee and stay but expressed my displeasure. After the clear finished the check in process she did inform us that she had waived the fee which was appreciated even though she still seems to have a bad attitude about doing so. With one exception the rest of our stay was fine. Given that they charge this pet fee I did find it disappointing that our room had stains on the carpet in the dressing area from what appeared to be dog feces. Why charge such a high fee under the guise of having to clean after pets if you are not actually going to do so?

Very good 8.0
The hotel was nice but could use a little updating. Overall nice and had a lot to offer as far as the kitchen and supplies. Very clean. My biggest complaint is that the front door is very hard to get into. There is one door and then another door immediately after that one which is offset. It is very difficult to get the luggage cart in and out and was very difficult for my son in his powerchair. There is a very large threshold to navigate as well. You can tell its always a problem because of all the nicks on the wooden door. Needs double doors and/or an easier access especially for handicap persons. Theres no way to get the cart trolley out by yourself. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Impressed overall
Had to move into the residence inn impromptu when my neighbor upstairs flooded my apartment. This was my first stay at residence inn and I was very impressed. I don't know if all the rooms come with these amenities but mine had a full fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave, sink, pots and pans and everything to make me comfortable. I was also pleasantly surprised at the breakfast options! They even had almond milk for those who prefer non diary. The staff were incredibly nice and pleasant!! My only gripe is that the water heater for the shower takes a while to get hot. I was getting inpatient and realized I had to let the water run a while before it got hot. I hope they fix that so that there's not as much water waste

Family trip to Charleston
The absolute friendliest staff I have ever encountered at a hotel. Everyone was so nice and spoke when passing, helpful with questions, and overall seemed to be really happy to be working there. The room was great and had everything we needed. We couldn’t believe the extras they offered. They brought popsicles to the kids at the pool, had a complimentary dinner with burgers and sides, complimentary beer and wine during dinner hour, quality complimentary breakfast. Saved a ton of money on dining!! Location was so convenient to Folly beach (10 min), Isle of Palms (25 min), old downtown (6 min) and city market area (10 min). Would stay again in a heartbeat

Very friendly and attentive staff
Room was good, a very friendly welcome upon checking in. Staff was very attentive and the overall service was really good. The had a small “happy hour” in the dining area, the wine selection was good and snacks. Breakfast was good, staff was very attentive and make sure the food was available at all time. The location, I guess it was ok! We only stayed one nite as we where heading home from the beach. The hotel is approximately 30-35 mins to Isle of Palm and about 25 mins from Mt. Pleasant. The only downside, the mattress in sofa bed bed should be replace, is a bit old and you can feel the strings in the mattress.
