    It's old and overpriced. The furniture looks like it came from the Salvation Army and the bedding need replacement. Nothing matched. The bathroom too small.

  • Older travelers

    Very friendly staff and rooms were clean! Loved the scenery around the Best Western!

    I guess the only bad thing would be the sap off the trees getting on my new car. Had it cleaned at car wash next door!

  • Couple

    The location of the hotel was an easy access to travel to and from Folly Beach. We also where able to attend mass and eat alot of good food.

    The softness of the bed and the amenities of the room. The pool was also very conveniant.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    I liked the breakfast and the full windows and high ceilings.

    The only thing i didn't like was that it's an outside hotel, meaning our hotel room leads directly to the outside.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    It was easy to find and close to the many things we wanted to visit in downtown Charleston. The accommodations were comfortable and fairly affordable for being so close to downtown. There were plenty of restaurants nearby and it was only a 15 minute drive to Folly Beach and a few other locations we wanted to visit.

    The hotel has been undergoing a renovation from what I understand. The bathrooms still need some more work. The toilet had to be flushed twice to completely flush and there was some rust along the toilet paper roll.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Very comfortable beds, good service from staff, quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Generally, the rooms are well designed and adequately furnished. The pool is exceptional. Everything is clean and the grounds are well kept.

    Towels are a bit sub-standard. The breakfast baked goods and breads are fresh but could be higher quality.

  • Older travelers

    We've been travelling for 4 weeks trough the us now, and the Sweetgrass Inn was by far the best hotel. Staff was great, rooms superb, breakfast, happy hour(!), location perfect, hooray for thuis wonderfull hotel !!!!!!!!

    No remarks to ben made. Wished we could have stayer longer.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Staff was very attentive. Good price and has easy access to the downtown area without paying downtown area prices.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The rooms were very clean, the staff was friendly, and the motel was located close too all the local attractions.

    At rush hour it was hard to turn left from the parking lot.

  • Older travelers

    Celebrating our 45th Anniversary, we chose bwsi for it value, compared to the other inns in and around Charleston. Value/cost was the primary reason for this choice, along with the ratings from previous guests. The ladies in the continental breakfast room were excellent. Very attentive to our needs and keeping the tables clean. Upon asking one where she would visit if having limited time, she recommended the Angel Oak Tree on Johns Island. We went there and it was the highlight of our trip. We thanked her later. We would choose bwsi on a return visit.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Great value for the money. Very pleasant and helful staff, especially Linda at breakfast. She definitely goes the extra mile. A good breafast is included in the price. Very nice landscaping.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Fairly close to downtown, reasonably priced, good parking, room with all needed facilities

    Too far from city center for easy cycling

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    Really didn't care for the hote.

    Was too expensive for such a basic hotel.

  • Older travelers

    The excellent rate and the cleanliness of the room. We enjoyed our stay.

    The pool was nice, the rest of it, not very good!

    Old and tired
