Positive Reviews

Acceptable rooms

Comments about the standard of the rooms at the Holiday Inn Charleston-Riverview are a little mixed, but the general consensus is that they are reasonable for the price. The amenities are typically found to be in good working order and some rooms have a nice view.

Friendly front-desk team

Guests describe the front desk team as offering a warm welcome to the hotel and a generally attentive service. The staff are knowledgeable about the local area and happy to recommend local restaurants and entertainment options.

Good location

There is not a lot not to like about the location of this hotel. It places you within easy reach of many of the area's attractions - some are within walking distance and others just a short drive from the property. The free evening shuttle helps you to discover some of the nearby nightlife.

Negative Reviews

Renovations could be overdue

Reviews suggest that this hotel is starting to look a little shabby and over-used in places. This probably won't affect your stay too much, but you may feel disappointed if you prefer a hotel to look fresh and new.

Air-conditioning is ineffective

Charleston is a fairly humid city and, unfortunately, the hotel's in-room air-conditioning does always seem to be up to the job of counteracting the damp surroundings. Some guests report that their clothes felt damp, while others simply say they were too hot.

No free breakfast

Unlike the Holiday Inn Express properties, Holiday Inn hotels do not offer a free breakfast. This confused and disappointed some guests. It doesn't help that the cost of breakfast is fairly high.
