This property is one of my favorites to stay while I'm in Charleston. It has the best view from its restaurant/bar! It's literally right smack in the middle of Highway 17. It's conveniently located to downtown and if you don't want to drive, you can take the shuttle. The drivers this trip were amazing. I kidded one that he was better than a carriage ride. Both were full of knowledge about Charleston. The down side was the van has something, not sure what, over the windows which makes it ... Read more

An unusual hotel in the round. Rooms an unusual triangle shape which gives a large amount of space. Large picture window gives panoramic views from high floors but no access to small balcony for safety reasons. Well equipped and clean but no microwave. Set in the middle of the highway low floors get plenty of traffic noise as does the outdoor swimming pool on the 3rd level. The feature of the hotel is the panoramic restaurant on the 15th floor. The views across the Ashley river to Charleston ar... Read more

We wanted a room with a view , and we got it . It was nice to see all the boats and water late in the evening. The room was ok... Nothing spectacular . Comfortable bed. The location was great . Very close to everything. The 14 th has a restaurant with a wonderful view.

This hotel is amazing. Clean, friendly staff, affordable, and best view and location for the price. Breakfast was included and was at the top floor overlooking the harbour, quick drive to the Battery and tourist area. Self serve laundry which I love when I travel-would definitely book again!

Room was very very clean. Actually got the exact room from a previous stay ( by pure chance). The roof top/floor bar is a excellent way to relax and look out over the river. We actually sat there for 3 1/2 hours before stepping over to the restaurant next door. Of all the places in Charleston that have top notch cooks, I must say this place has the best SheCrab soup by far. Our waitress at the bar was above & beyond. The bar tender stayed on top of all the people coming in, so between him & t... Read more

The hotel is conveniently located, has a shuttle to downtown, clean room, a fantastic restaurant, and great staff. The restaurant has a great menu with variety and the shrimp is delicious. While eating, take in the great view of the city. Well worth visiting!

This hotel has great views of the river. You can watch the boats coming in and out of the harbor. I would definitely consider staying here again. The only reason I didn't give it a higher rating, is that it is an old hotel. And needs a little updating. The balconies have been closed for safety reasons and it just shows its age in various ways. Otherwise it is a nice place to stay. Clean, friendly staff and did I mention the gorgeous views!?!

If choosing this hotel, choose to upgrade to a city view it will be worth the money. The front desk staff was great on check in and out. They suggested for us to take the shuttle into town and definitely worth it. The staff upstairs in the restaurant go out of their way to make sure you are happy with everything. The view is outstanding and even better with a sunset.

I am shocked to see so many 5 star ratings because this is definitely NOT a 5 star hotel! When we first entered our room, we were greeted with, dreary carpeting, really shabby furniture, and a musty, "doggy" smell that took some getting use to. The drawers of the dresser were incredibly difficult to open and close, so we opted to leave them partially open. The toilet alarmingly seemed on the verge of overflowing with every flush. The mattresses and pillows were just old, and tired, and uncomfor... Read more

I was surprised to see that this landmark hotel was still operating and enjoyed the nostalgia of staying there almost 40 years later! Rooms were very nice, spacious, incredible views. Beds were extremely comfortable and I loved that there were plenty of places to plug phones and other items into. The breakfast buffet is NOT included but that is not generally mentioned so I was not aware of that. A $14.00 breakfast of eggs and bacon is a bit steep but I did love the restaurant views. I was a... Read more

Checked in late on a Sunday, there was a dirty wrapper on the floor behind toilet, it was still there when we checked out on a Wednesday. They advertise that there are bar bites up to midnight so thought we could get something to eat. Went to the bar,was informed that the kitchen closed at 9:30. Very personable bartender, she suggested several things we should see and do, good info. Great view from restaurant and bar, enjoyed breakfast.

As Holiday Inn Hotels go, this is merely satisfactory. It is a bit outside of town but there is good road access. The rooms are not great but are adequate. The room itself was fairly clean but not pristine. There's a pool on the third floor and it is very nice. So while I would not highly recommend this place, if you're on a budge and not too choosy, it's OK.

Walls are thin, had to ask to be moved to another room due to loud people next door. Manager agreed after third phone call and threat to leave. After this everything was fine. Hotel is dated in style and right out of the 1970's.

There is no denying - this hotel has the best views in the city... pulled away from downtown, this hotel can give you a break and provide some greenery in your day. Go upstairs (all the way up) and eat Breakfast in the restaurant for extraordinary views of fields of sweet grass, the city and its famed steeples, the bridges.

We stayed here for a weekend right before Christmas. The hotel was very clean and looked like it had been recently updated. It's a quick drive to downtown. The staff was helpful and friendly. For the price of $99/night, this was a good deal.

The hotel is minutes from downtown, and easily accessed from I-26. It is convenient to many of the Charleston area attractions. It can be pricy, but it's worth the money. I enjoy being comfortable and having the convinces that I enjoy, and this hotel delivers that.

Location is very convenient. If you purchase Carnival's Faster to the Fun their complimentary shuttle to the port will not help you- they only offer 2 shuttle times with 10 spaces each after 12 Noon. We ended up having to pay a taxi service to get us to and from the port. We used Norman from Port City Cab Authority and he was awesome- he charged us $10 pp each way but took us directly to the port at 11 am. And he was there when we got off the ship as promised at 7:30 am. The restaurant in this h... Read more

I have to say though that beds were way too hard and I barely slept - pillows were fine and had lots of them - in room coffee (two coffee pods - one decaf and tea) and if I wanted any later I had to go downstairs and purchase the pods for 1.50 each -so I didn't but I had never seen that before. Also had small refrigerator. Parking was free. Great location but of course h... Read more

My family stayed at the Holiday Inn Charleston Riverview on June 18th and our server in the restaurant, Josephine (jo) was outstanding. She gave us impeccable service and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. I've worked in restaurants for 20 years and this is the first time I have felt the need to write a review on a server. Keep up the good work, Jo!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Charleston Riverview for 3 nights/4 days. Nicole on the front desk was very helpful with all of our needs (shuttle to Charleston, dining, room change for view, luggage, etc.). The room was clean/comfortable, the AC was nice and chilly for those 90 degree plus days. The gym was simple, but had a small weight room with cardio machines. The outdoor pool was clean and scenic.

We stayed here over two nights to visit family in James Island. It's very conveniently located for anyone wanting to get to downtown, West Ashley, and James Island. It was a good deal, especially for 4th of July weekend. I think calling it an average hotel is the best description. Our only issue with it was that it was very humid in our room. Cool, but humid. The books we brought with us had that moist bend in the pages and our towels didn't feel like they dried. It's a humid time of year, so ... Read more

This hotel has been around for quite a few years, so it's kind of showing its age, but has had some updates as well. Most everything squeaks or squeals, from the elevator doors to the toilet when it flushes. Housekeeping wasn't great. We found a lot of hairs on top of the comforter and some medical papers left from a previous guest in the hotel directory. It wasn't dirty, just lack of detail. The front desk was very friendly and we had a broken hairdryer that maintenance was quick to come u... Read more

You know what you are getting with a Holiday Inn. This one is 5 minutes taxi ride from the centre of town. The place is clean and the room was a good size. The bar on the top floor is fab for great views over the city. Special mention to Jo who works in the bar - very friendly and welcoming.

We requested a certain type of room and we were accommodated quickly. The front desk gentleman was very nice and helpful. Loved their shuttle that went to and from the hotel from downtown Charleston. One driver in particular, John, was very helpful with facts and history about the downtown district. We really enjoyed our stay there.

We found a magazine at a tourist information center when we entered South Carolina, and we saw an ad that offered a special rate. We tried to get the rate pretty early in the day on a weekday, and somehow they had no more rooms available for that special rate, but could give us a room for about $20 more per night. So they got us for an extra $40, and we didn't even get the best view they have. The room was good, the restaurant was excellent (We ate there once and had drinks there twice), but I... Read more

This is an older property and has been here for numerous years, but it really needs some updates and specific renovations. It's a 13 story circular hotel overlooking the Ashley River with easy access to the downtown area. Each room has a private balcony, but you're not allowed to go out and enjoy the view of the harbor and marina. Our windows were so dirty we had a hard time enjoying the view. Our room seemed smaller than usual and the bathroom almost gave me claustrophobia. The room had a sm... Read more

Our experience started out well, but little things kept happening, and by the end of the week, it was just too much to take. We were moved half way through our week when they moved us to a different room, due to a very cryptic "remodeling issue".

However, the staff were almost always friendly and ... Read more

Just over the bridge from everything you want to do. Perfect for those visiting Charleston with a car but on a budget. Stayed here with two little ones and brought a pack and play and an air mattress for them. A little cramped in the room but it worked. Every room has a view. Kids eat free in restaurant on top floor.

Great staff!!! The hotel needs a revamp.. Full size beds should be replaced with queen size, since rooms are spacious enough. Need a barrier between sink area and living area. A separate light switch for shower/toilet from sink area could work. The pool corners were filthy. Nice work out space. Our room was facing the ice machine so made it noisy.
