    easy access to Charleston and free parking

    The Charleston Inn is an older motel but has been remodeled and updated. In addition the staff is friendly and competent.   The buffet breakfast is outstanding. First time I saw a make it youself automatic pancake machine. Lots of choices. Many rooms you can park directly in front of your room and its about 4 miles to downtown Charleston

    Was a taking a cruise and booked this hotel and used their cruise package deal which includes bus to and from port.. You can also park your car on their property instead paying port prices.. Had a good experience and no complaints.. Great value for the price

    Nice reasonable accommodation

    We stay allot at Best Western hotels. This one is an upgraded two story motel with a new long. If you have mobility issues ask for the first floor. Nice pool . You could not ask for cleaner or more friendly staff. About an easy 5 mile drive to old town

    BW Charleston

    We always stay at the BW CHARLESTON when traveling thru Charleston.. The hospitality of the staff (all levels) we have interacted with have displayed true Charleston charm. Great location, very clean rooms with comfortable beds. The price is right..

    Good 2 night stay!

    Good hotel to stay at as it's pretty close to downtown (7 minute drive). Rooms were good and hotel staff was very friendly and informative as they recommended some things to do in the city. I am liking Best Western as a hotel as it has very good free breakfasts and good accommodations.
