    The best part of this hotel is the housekeeping staff. I've never met friendlier, more helpful people. The pool and grounds were very clean. Our room was clean upon our arrival.

    While the hotel staff was friendly and helpful, I can't say as much for the manager. He was not helpful at all and actually a bit rude. There were dead palmetto bugs all over the fitness room and an occasional one in our room. The bathrooms had a mildew odor and there was mold on the bedroom ceiling.

    Very good hotel! Nice staff and good breakfast. Nearby bus stop to city centre and for a Citytour, they´ll pick you up at the hotel. Boattour to fort Sumter also very nice!

    Breakfast only till 9am. But you can have breakfast till 10am at the hotel next to this one!

    I'm sorry I can't remember the name of the woman who checked us in & who was at the front desk every time we went in. She was fabulous; patient, knowledgable, helpful, and always with a smile. What an asset to BW.

    Bathroom was pretty tight space. However, very clean. Did have a noisy neighbor who came in very late, banging on the door and cursing loudly. It woke us up. The wonderful desk attendant gave us a little break for that. it wasn't the fault of BW.
