25/06/2018

The staff was great and so friendly. Breakfast was really good.....waffles, fruit, various breads etc. Rooms were spacious, clean and we had a fridge. It was a pretty setting with many trees surrounding it. We would stay there again!!!

"Ok place to stay"

4
30/05/2018

Breakfast was ok. Hot was gravy, waffles, make your own oatmeal most days. One morning was scrambled eggs. Room was clean. Shower hot with great water pressure. Price was a little cheaper than surrounding hotels. Only negative was trying to get out of the hotel on work days. The traffic was terrible and people would not let you make a left hand turn out. Not a negative necessarily on the hotel, just rude SC people.

"Great night"

29/05/2018

Stayed 1 night. The manager on shift was extremely nice and accommodating. The hotel was clean and didn't reek of cigarette smoke or marijuana (like many hotrls I've stayed at in the past). The continental breakfast was great, lots of options. I would definitely stay there again!

"A pleasant stay close to Charleston"

22/05/2018

This is a good option for hotels outside of Charleston, SC. Great customer service and quality of hotel! Only problem was finding a few bugs in the room, and the bathroom stayed damp because there was no vent.

"Nice hotel"

14/05/2018

Nice hotel. Clean rooms, nice layout and nice breakfast. It has a friendly staff especially Janet the manager. Kind of difficult getting out of the parking lot due to sporadic traffic. Would stay again.

"Enjoyed my stay"

06/05/2018

The staff was friendly when we checked in and checked out. We enjoyed the pool and the breakfast was amazing. Our stay was short but I had a amazing experience. The bed was a little stiff but it's something that I could deal with.

"Customer Service is TOP NOTCH at this location"

Hopefully you're lucky enough to get Ms. Lizzy when you check in. Not only does she make you feel like you're the single most important guest at this hotel, but you will fall in love with her bubbly personality. Our breakfast servers where also very attentive and made certain there was plenty of warm food on the breakfast buffet. The hotel itself is clean and modernized. It's tucked away in a wooded area so that was also a plus for us because we were able to sit down at the end of the day, relax and enjoy a bottle of wine at one of their outdoor picnic tables. This hotel is well worth the money considering you are not far from Charleston or Summerville. We will definitely be back next time we have to stay in the area.

Great Location, great price, Great Room. The location was right off the interstate 20. About 10 min from the mall and many , many places to eat.. I would stay here every time I visit. It was very quiet, and safe.

We were very pleased with our stay. People at the desk were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and well attended to. Location was very good with I-26 very close by, but traffic was bad at times. The only complaint we had was that breakfast could have been better. Items not replaced or overcooked.

We booked a last minute vacation to Charleston, and knew we'd be running each day to see the sights, so were opting for a basic hotel, clean and comfortable. We booked a different location, which was not exceptable. We changed to this property and was thoroughly pleased with the value for what we got. I do not consider this a basic property, but the price fit that category. Everything was very clean, the room was extremely comfortable, quiet (even though we were near the elevator and lobby), comfortable bed and the staff made you feel valued and welcome. The decor was well thought out and the breakfast provided was awesome (scrambled eggs, potatoes, saussage, hot waffles plus colder fair options)! I failed to get her name, but the girl that ran the breakfast service was amazing at her job! She not only kept everything fully stocked, the room cleaned and stayed out of everyones way, she anticipated the guests needs. Breakfast ends at 10AM and I was getting a later start one day. I came to the breakfast area about 9:45AM and didn't expect to have as many choices. I was surprised to see hot eggs and potatoes still available, so got my plate of food. The girl waited to clear everything until I was done eating. I came back for some coffee and she asked if I needed anything else. I expressed my surprise that the eggs were still available despite my late arrival. She was ready to get me anything I wanted despite it being after 10AM. That is service! She displayed this level of professionalism and attentiveness each morning. It was rare that she had to offer anything to anyone, as she was anticipating the needs before hand. It was clear she understood above average service and it shined! We got way more than we paid for at this property and I would definately recommend it to others. It's about 20-30 minutes from downtown, depending on the traffic.

Convenient for the airport. Spacious and comfortable room. Quick check in. Breakfast could have been better. Easy access to Charleston and Interstate. Clean. Bath needs a mat, as it gets very sloppy and dangerous. Good value.

"Convenient location and comfortable room"

27/03/2018

The check-in was easy. The room was very clean and the staff very accommodating. The beds are comfortable. The hot breakfast in the morning was just what me and my little girl needed to get our day started. Will stay here again when I come back to visit family.

"Okay for just one night."

19/03/2018

We booked this hotel so we could be close to the Charleston Coliseum and Summerville. It was convenient, but we found our room to be very noisy due to the proximity to the Interstate. Had to run the fan all night just to mitigate the traffic noise. The pillows on our bed were like rocks. Breakfast was so-so. The staff was friendly and the common rooms are very nice. There is an exercise room.

"Nice stay!"

5
06/03/2018

Check-in was quick and the person checking us in quickly and cheerfully corrected the mistake of the key not being programmed correctly. Other staff was friendly and helpful, too. Motel was quiet and clean, A/C unit was quiet, hot breakfast was good (even the coffee!) and included sausage, scrambled eggs, hash browns, waffles, cereal, juices, pastries, yogurt, milk, etc. We never had a chance to use the exercise room or outdoor pool, but they were available and looked nice. We would recommend it.

"Best Bang for Your Buck!"

Full Breakfast, immaculate rooms, Beautifully decorated, kind and friendly staff. I stay here all the time, just as a relaxing getaway. Best hotel I've ever stayed in! The jacuzzi suite is my second home! I'd live there if I could lol

I made reservations online not knowing that I would run into unexpected snow storm and they were kind enough to hold my reservation until I arrive later that night. I'm so grateful for their understanding and kindness.

Lizzy L, Manager at Best Western Magnolia Inn and Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us. We try to be as understanding as we would expect others to be in unforeseen circumstances. We are happy you made it safely. The snow storm was shocking to us all. Hope to see you again soon without the snow.

Perfect hotel for us, plenty of room. My husband and I stayed here during our weekend in Charleston. There were plenty of places to eat nearby and the location felt very safe. The hotel itself also had an outdoor pool, which looked very nice...although we didn't use it due to the fact that it was winter hehe.

I have stayed here a few times and it is in a great location outside of the rush of Charleston. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Breakfast is not bad when they don't run out of food, but not too keen on eating it off a plastic plate. I would still consider this hotel for future stays.

"Great staff, but room was poor"

26/09/2017

The hotel had a very friendly staff and was clean. The problem was our room. When we arrived, the TV remote and a phone did not work. The staff did fix that. The room was musty and actually damp. Our clothes in the room were damp. The bathroom had a crooked commode, crooked hook, and a crooked spigot. The day we checked out the toilet would not flush. Breakfast was fine and the décor was good--looked like it had recently been updated. We are walkers and found that the area did not have good sidewalks for walking--mostly overgrown with weeds. The convenience to I-26 was a plus--only 15 miles from Charleston downtown.

"Wonderful staff, but room was unpleasant"

26/09/2017

The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we arrived the TV remote did not work, nor did the phone in the room. The front desk woman was diligent at finding us a remote that worked. The breakfast was good each day. The decor of the hotel is good and has been updated. The hotel was 15 miles from downtown Charleston and right next to I-26 which was convenient. We like to walk, but the area was somewhat rural. Whatever sidewalks there were, they were not easy to walk on because they are overgrown with weeds. Our room was musty and actually damp! When we left to sightsee, at our return, our clothes in the room were damp. The bathroom made us laugh. The commode was crooked, the hook was crooked and the spigot was crooked. The morning we checked out, the toilet would not flush.

Stayed two nights. The Good...The room was large. The beds were very comfortable. I had the eggs and sausage for breakfast it was good. The Bad... The room had an odor that was musty and the carpet was damp. The waffle maker did not make waffles, it had to be scraped off the waffle maker (more the batter then the maker.) The coffee was weak. All in all it was ok... doubt we'll stay there again.

My husband and I were visiting our son, who is in the Air Force, so this was a close spot, without being int he expensive Charleston area. The hotel was clean and the front desk staff was very friendly. Our room was a little musty smelling, but clean. Their free breakfast was pretty average, and contained eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, cereals, toast, a waffle machine and muffins. The eggs and sausage were cold, but the gravy was hot - so their warmers were not all working properly. They have an outdoor pool that is actually underneath the hotel - so if you want to stay out of the sun - it's good for that.

"We really enjoyed our stay"

14/08/2017

We recently spent a weekend in Charleston, SC and stayed at this BW Magnolia Inn & Suites - only about 20 minutes away from the old town. Our whole hotel was clean - fresh - and had a new feel. Our room was spacious, the restroom was fine, the king bed slept comfortably, and the walls kept noise out, all the basic things I look for. The only complaint I have is that, for whatever reason, the "hot" bar breakfast items (biscuits, eggs, sausage, gravy) were not really hot. That was odd - as the food was delicious. The two waffle makers, on the other hand, pumped out steaming hot waffles - so that offset the other. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay - and would certainly look to stay here again.

As a whole, the hotel was really great! Lizzy (spelling?) checked us in and was very helpful, funny, and friendly. We always had pleasant encounters with her! The other woman who we saw at the desk (I didn't get her name) was also very polite and helpful. As for the room itself, it was in good order and comfortable. We found no evidence at all of bed bugs, which was a relief. The only real issues were with the bathroom. The bathroom REALLY needed a fan. There was nothing at all to help alleviate the steam from the shower or to help circulate air in that room. The air conditioner is clear on the other side of the hotel room and did nothing to help the bathroom. And the walls are thin. We could hear our neighbors TV going at all hours of the day or night. And the windows may as well have not even been in place considering how loud the noise was from the freeway next to the hotel. They certainly didn't provide much of any noise barrier. Breakfast was the typical cereal options, waffle, toast, or pastries. It was all good each of the mornings. We had to check out of our room at 4:45 AM and when we came down to the lobby we couldn't find anyone at the desk. We had to get to the airport so we couldn't stand and wait for someone to arrive, so we didn't get a receipt for our stay or a proper check out. I hope that doesn't come back to haunt us! Aside from the lack of quiet in the room, though, we had an excellent stay.

Ms. Lizzy was there when I checked in and she is great! Every hotel should have a front desk person like her. The room was large and clean. The carpets were very plush. The bed and pillows didn't allow me comfortable sleep, but I lived with it. The breakfast was substantial. It held me from 9:30am until 2pm. Eggs, sausage, waffles, tater tots (instead of hasbrowns)cereal, coffee, yogurt, fruit were all available. The breakfast attendee was on her job, checking and making sure everything was stocked and when it ran out, she was remaking items and brewing coffee. All in all, I would definitely stay again if I was in the Charleston area.

This was the second year in a row staying at this hotel! It's a fair price for the stay! Only 20 minutes from downtown Charleston so it was pretty convenient but the traffic sometimes made it longer but they can't really help that! The breakfast was great everyday and the hotel staff was very nice! My only thing is that the beds were comfortable at first but by the end of the trip my back was very sore I even used a body pillow and it was still painful....don't know if it was because of the bed or what, but everything else was great!

Ms. Shanda, I am sorry your stay was not pleasant. The shower temperature sensor broke while you were in the room. Unfortunately it takes over an hour to troubleshoot it & change it. We would have gladly moved you to another room but we were in a sold-out situation and there were no rooms available. I apologize again for any inconvenience.

"To Add Insult to Injury!!! By far the worst hotel experience ever!!!!!!!!!"

1
07/06/2017

I am a Veteran who served this Great Country honorably. On 2/3/16, I slipped and fell on a wet bathroom floor due to very poor Housekeeping and gross negligence. At my insistence, I made a statement about the fall and gave a copy to Hotel Manager Lizzie who later stated to the insurance company that I had made a statement about the incident but refused to give her a copy. Please tell me what good would a statement do if I don't report it to Hotel Management? Please note that at no time did Lizzie document the incident. If I had not insisted that I make a report, I would have absolutely no documentation to support my claim. Immediately after I fell on the wet floor, I spoke with Lizzie and showed her my injuries. She immediately noticed the blood seeping through my jogging pants and the contusion on my left knee. She immediately asked if house keeping was still up there. Lizzie also stated that this type of incident had only happened to her once but the guy was at fault because he spilled something on the floor. She gave me bandages for my knee and asked if I needed to go to the hospital. I stated that I would see a doctor when I returned home. Lizzie told me to send her all medical bills related to the incident and provided the address where the bills needed to be sent. However, when I returned home I did not receive call from Lizzie or any agent for Best Western inquiring about my fall or well being. I called corporate on February 16th to report the incident. I was informed by corporate that someone from the hotel would contact me. On February 19, 2016, I received a voicemail from Lizzie requesting that I call her. On 3/1/16, I informed Lizzie that I was advised to get a cat scan. She requested that I provide her the date and doctor information as soon as I scheduled. I informed her that I was seeing a doctor for my injuries. She also provided her personal cell phone number and stated that, "We will see how insurance takes care of these things". On 3/31,I faxed the doctor's report and on 4/6/16, called Lizzie to confirm receipt of the documents. To add insult to injury, Hotel Manager Lizzie flat out LIED about the injury to corporate and the insurance company. Lizzie absurdly stated that I was not injured and that she believed that I was injured prior to staying at the hotel. Moreover, it is clearly evident that Lizzie lacks a conscience and will do whatever to save her own skin. But trust me, I am not one to be deterred!!! Please stay away from this dump!

"Clean room, breakfast ok"

This hotel is about 15 minutes outside Charleston and reasonably priced. It's right off I-26. Our room was clean, it had a slight musty smell. The staff were friendly and hospitable. The breakfast was average. Small covered pool area.

"Very Clean and Inviting"

03/06/2017

The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. She showed us a map of available rooms and let us decide where WE wanted in the hotel. The room was very clean and spacious. My wife is extremely picky about cleanliness and our room passed her inspection with no problem (rare). The only issue we had was the bathroom didn't appear to have a fan - not a good idea when our 8yo went #2. My wife works as a hotel breakfast cook in an upscale hotel. Though we didn't have the time to eat here, she considered the dining area clean and inviting.

I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past few years. The location is convenient, the price is average, the staff is always nice, the breakfast is good, but this time the bathroom was dirty and the room had not been cleaned well. I would still recommend this hotel though.

30/05/2017

The room was very clean, however, the air freshner was over powering. It had a fridge and microwave and a nice TV. What it didn't have was an extra blanket and even a standard size pillow. I felt like my pillow was a small throw pillow from the couch. The breakfast was very underwhelming. I've had better food from a vending machine. It was a clean safe place to put my head. It was not a place of comfort. .All employees that I made contact with were pleasant and helpful.

Visit started with a very warm welcome from the manager. This hotel is reasonably priced for being so close to Charleston. Did not try the breakfast, but husband and grandson said it was good. Wi-Fi connection very good. The outside pool was in a covered area, which made it extra nice. Stayed three nights and plan on going back in a couple of months. Manager enrolled me in the rewards club, which was very much appreciated.

We stayed at this hotel on a recent visit to Charleston. We stayed here versus in Charleston saving 100's of $$$ and its only a 15-20 min drive into town. Hotel was clean. Breakfast was what you expect from a BW, breakfast area large lots of tables. Best hotels pillows we have come across....that said some of the most uncomfortable beds ever!

Kimberly at the front desk was very helpful with helping me solve my best western rewards issue. Location of hotel was great with lots of food choices nearby. Hotel was very clean and beds are soft. Breakfast was good as well. I typically have good experiences at Best Western since I am a rewards member and travel for work all over the country. This Best Western is one of the best I have stayed at. I would highly recommend this hotel!

The Inn presents well. Parking and access to the rooms was good. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Everything was in good working order. The staff was exceptional. Breakfast was more typical of the mediocre food offerings at motels.

"Nice buy Noisey"

14/05/2017

Loved the room and hotel, but the motorcycles on the side road in front of the hotel were extremely loud at all times. There is a motorcycle shop just a short distance from the hotel. Stayed there for several nights, and it never seemed to get any better. It is sad because the hotel is ever so nice.

Lizzy L, Manager at Best Western Magnolia Inn and Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for your review of our property. i do understand your frustration with the noise level of the motorcycle shop. Although that does not happen all the time, when you visit us again we will be sure to place you in a more quieter location of the hotel. I do apologize for the disturbance. I hope your next stay will be much more quiet than the last.

"Nice large room and bed... traffic was loud though..."

12/05/2017

The room was very nice. It was clean and quite spacious. The only thing that came up was my room was at the front of the hotel and I could hear traffic.. motorcycles racing down the street, trucks going by... other than that it was a nice stay.

"Reservation Amount"

09/05/2017

The overall hotel experience was very good. The hotel is clean, rooms/bed good and staff were all very friendly. We do have an issue with our bill. We made reservations 4 months before our trip and received the amount with our reservation confirmation. Upon checking out, the amount is $150 more than what was indicated on the initial reservation. We were leaving very early to catch a flight and the gentleman at the front desk was unable to make this adjustment. I have not received a follow-up to my inquiry from the Magnolia Inn or BW reservations regarding adjustment of the bill.

Lizzy L, Manager at Best Western Magnolia Inn and Suites, responded to this review
Ms. Adurey, Thank you for staying with us. As discussed yesterday, the additional charge is for the extra day that you added to your reservation. Your initial reservation was for 2 days and you extended an additional day. Thanks.

Hotel was updated, except the bathrooms. The bathroom tile was in disrepair and the shower surround was older. Also, no exhaust fan and facuet was not properly installed. The bed was comfy, large TV and nice room furniture. Large breakfast area and friendly staff.

17/04/2017

We decided on staying here due to it being close to family and Charleston. The stafood was very friendly and helpful. The mattress was too firm for my wife however perfect for me so they offered extra pillows to place underneath her back for more comfort. I really enjoyed the hot breakfast with eggs,sausage,biscuits and gravy. They're renovating the property and the room was clean and modern. I only wish the rooms were sound proof so you hear everything next door.

Friendly staff; comfortable room; clean; breakfast was fine. We originally stayed here since we were to arrive around 5:30 pm to visit Summerville that eve and next day and then tour the plantations on Ashley River Road before heading into Charleston. Would have returned here during our trip, but after returning from Savannah we preferred to stay closer to Charleston for the next couple of days.

This hotel was very accommodating and the staff was outstanding! We went there because of incoming bad weather so it was a safe place while the horrible weather passed. During check out it was a breeze no waiting in lines just a simple stroll out to the cars and off we go back home hoping and praying that no damage came to our beautiful home!

We used this hotel as our home base to visit a dear friend in the Air Force and to tour Charleston. All of the workers that we encountered, from the front desk, the breakfast workers and cleaning people, were very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. We got a great nights sleep all four nights. The breakfast in the morning was excellent. Very clean and plenty of food. We would stay here again if we ever find ourselves in the area.

Great hotel, great staff, very nice room and breakfast. We were there for 5 nights while visiting the Charleston area and had a great stay. Very helpful staff and easy access to the highway. Not much to do nearby, but there is a gas station and McDonalds across the road. Will definitely stay here when we visit Charleston again.

This was our second stay at this location. We booked this last stay because of the service and quality of the facility. This stay was as good as the last. We had requested the same room as before and the staff was accommodating.We would recommend this location to family and friends.

"So-so"

25/10/2016

My wife and I stayed here last night. The hotel is very difficult to get to, especially with traffic off I-26. It's located on a very congested access road and getting to it is up to the kindness of fellow drivers that let you through. The elevators are very slow and noisy. The room was ok, but the bed was way too hard for us. I still have a sore back from sleeping on it. The walls are paper thin, as we could hear the conversation next door all night long. I had to put tissue paper on my ears to try and get to sleep. Not only is it a NOT pet-friendly but it's also a NON-SMOKING motel. The breakfast included scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, cereals, pastries and fresh fruit. I don't believe I would stay here again due to the location, hard bed and thin walls.

"NO LONGER PET FRIENDLY and NO cancellation refunds given for reservations made under prior pet-friendly policy"

24/10/2016

I cannot comment on the property itself, but be advised that it is NO LONGER PET FRIENDLY. We had purchased a reservation (3 months in advance) for 1 night with a pet for this property via Hotwire, when the hotel was pet-friendly. In the interim, they have decided to change their pet policy. It's fine to change your policy, however, 1) no notice whatsoever was given to us either by this hotel or Hotwire that their policy had changed (even though a dog was listed in the reservation notes for 3 months for a pet-friendly room with my email and contact info on file) and 2) this hotel is refusing to authorize a refund through Hotwire for their policy change. I understand they might not see the reservation notes until the last minute, and that's understandable, but willfully not issuing a refund for a room sold under false pretenses is detestable. Neither this hotel nor Hotwire are willing to take responsibility for the issue.

"Clean and Comfortable"

22/10/2016

My husband and I came down south for the weekend. We stayed two nights here. It's very convenient to the highway. We used the hotel as our home base as we checked out a concert in Charleston on Friday night, and the U.S.S. Yorktown, Sullivan's Island and Folly Beach on Saturday. We found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. The road noise was a bit loud until we got to sleep, though. But once I'm asleep, it doesn't bother me, so it wasn't much of an issue. The hotel is very clean, and the rooms are roomy. They offer an above average breakfast, with eggs, sausage, sausage gravy, waffles and more. Definitely worth the price. We would certainly stay here again if we were in the area.

"Excellent Hotel! Great Price!"

05/10/2016

This is a great hotel! We stayed one night in a double room. The room was very clean and neat. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They allowed us an early check in so that we could get ready for a wedding in Charleston. The breakfast was awesome! Eggs, sausage, hash browns, waffles, cereal, bagels, etc. I would definitely stay here again!!!

"Good hotel in a poor location"

04/10/2016

We were part of a tour group. This was our Charleston hotel for two nights.It's quite a way out of Charleston and there are very few amenities within walking distance. Our guide suggested we eat at either the Waffle House or McDonald's - not exactly fine dining. Even these could only be accessed on foot across a potentially dangerous road crossing. Our guide and driver kindly then took us to a retail park some miles away where we could find a better choice of restaurants. The hotel is quite good in itself - comfortable rooms, good continental breakfast and friendly staff. If you are coming here by car then you will have a much better experience - most of our problems arose from coming as part of a coach tour group. If I had been in a hire car it would have scored much more highly

"Best Hotel Experience Ever"

26/09/2016

even though there were a few small things wrong, they addressed everything with a kind voice and a smile. i felt at home immediately. I had the Jacuzzi suite/Whirlpool Room & it..was...Amazing... most comfortable Hotel bed Ever. Pool was open until 10pm.Everything was super clean. breakfast was delicious. I went for a "pamper me" day because i was just emotionally drained... between the wonderful room and the Amazing Staff i left feeling content and rested. looking forward to staying there again !!

"Nope!"

23/09/2016

Well what can I say--you decide if you would like to stay here. First room (yes first) we had a cockroach crawl up on us while we were watching TV. Front desk person just said "well we've had a lot of rain and this just happens". Shrugging her shoulders she then stated, "They get in". This was not very reassuring to me, but I agreed to move to a new room.The second room that we were place in smelled like mold and everything had a damp feel. The carpet under our feet felt wet, the linens felt damp...it was very weird but the front desk person indicated there was not much choice in rooms so we just dealt with it for the night. Nope, I don't recommend this hotel.

"Clean & Quiet"

20/09/2016

We were in the area for a couple of soccer games and just needed a clean, quiet and relatively inexpensive place to stay for the night. This place fit the bill. The place was clean and very quiet. It was pretty much your standard traveler's motel, nothing fancy but more than adequate for our one night needs. We were greeted very cordially and checked in with no hassle. I can't find anything bad to say about this motel but nothing makes it stand out other than it was very quiet (did I say that already). We were at then end of the building and the wifi signal was a little weak. The breakfast was about what one would expect but it satisfied our needs and no one left hungry. All in all, I would stay here if ever in the area again.

12/09/2016

I recently stayed there for one night. The property is a good choice as it's close enough to Charleston without the downtown prices. The motel itself is a bit dated and in some areas appears a little worn. My room was clean but a bit musty, but the bed was comfortable and bathroom fine. Unfortunately I was awakened at 2:30AM by the loud couple arguing next door, but one call to the front desk took care of that. Otherwise it was very quiet. There is a nice full breakfast served in the morning. The front desk clerk was extremely nice. This hotel is good for location and affordability. I'd rate it 2 1/2 stars. No red flags.

Someone had already booked this hotel for me. A pleasant surprise. Very clean and beds very, very comfortable. A big bonus was breakfast each morning with eggs, waffles, cereal, etc. Staff was warm and welcoming. During week parking lot very crowded with trucks but found a spot to park. At about 5 am the construction workers working locally and staying there were loud and could hear them talking thru walls and in halls. They were gone by 6 am and all quiet. All in all a great place to stay and would stay again.

Primary hotel of choice when traveling to Charleston SC area. Good location and home-town feeling. Staff from front desk, kitchen, to the maintenance guy are caring and attentive. Summerville with restaurants and shopping is close-by. You won't be disappointed!!!!!

18/08/2016

We stayed two nights. Motel was quiet, clean and the staff was accommodating. IF you're there to visit Charleston, as we were, try not to get caught in the AM rush hour traffic---especially if you need to be in town at a specific time. The motel told us that it was about a 20-30 minute drive and it ended up taking us over an hour in traffic. Other than that, no complaints!

"Perfect place/price/people!"

15/08/2016

We stayed here ( our second trip staying at this location) and were even more impressed. The staff ( reception, housekeeping, breakfast) were lovely and welcoming- genuinely warm and caring. The people really make the stay at this place top notch. The comfort and cleanliness of the room was great- such a nice room to relax in after packing a moving van most of the day- in 90+ heat. To come in and lounge by the peaceful pool then rest in a "just right" bed was wonderful. The breakfast was such a bonus- great tasting- nice selection and super clean area. We were sorry to head home :) Definitely would recommend this to any traveler- easy access to highway but so quiet; close enough to ladson/summerville or north charleston to make it a great choice for home base if exploring the area.

"Nice Hotel, Good Value"

13/08/2016

Stayed for 8 nights (going back for 3 more) Only issue was they did not clean our room one day. By the time we got back to our room housekeeping had left. They delivered clean towels and took out trash. Very quiet and great staff. Right near highway entrance

"Nice hotel at a fair price."

06/08/2016

Wife and I stayed 2 nights at this hotel and were pleased with the experience. Its location was a large part of our decision to book there. Right off I-26 with easy access to downtown Charleston in about 20 minutes. The price to stay in town was a bit too much when our plans were only to be in the hotel for a couple hours each evening, so this BW was a great option. The outside of the hotel has plenty of parking that's well lit at night. The staff are friendly and helpful. We found the hotel was clean inside and out. Our room was more than adequate with a king bed, flat screen tv, microwave, fridge, and small coffee pot. The shower/toilet area was well stocked and we liked the large counter top space. The hot bar breakfast each morning was a very nice touch. We have stayed in more expensive hotels that didn't include this or charged extra for it. Its also worth mentioning how quiet the area is. There was no noticeable noise from the interstate or nearby businesses. We stepped out to the parking lot at severall times of day and it was always peaceful. If you look on Google Maps you can see the hotel is surrounded on 3 sides by woods which helps keep things quieter. We will definitely be booking our stay here the next time we're in town.

"Stench In Rooms / Sheets Nasty"

1) The smell was UNBEARABLE! The room reeked of terrible mold/mildew! 2) There was a dead ROACH in the doorway when we checked in and when we checked out! 3) Sheets weren't a decent quality/knots formed from washing that looked like bugs!

30/07/2016

We decided to spend a long weekend exploring Charleston, SC and were lucky enough to find these accomodations only about 20 minutes away. The room we have is a double queen and works out well. We went for a swim in the pool and because it is partially under the cover of a roof, it was very refreshing even though the air temperature was in the 90s. We would definately stay here again.

25/07/2016

We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Magnolia Inn and Suites. We were quickly and efficiently checked in, our room was super clean and well appointed. The showers were clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff was very friendly. The microwave and refrigerator were a plus. We will return as needs arise.

"Not like the advertised pictures"

24/07/2016

The staff was friendly and the breakfast bar was ok (not hot, lukewarm food). Biggest disappointment was our room. The photos in their on line site specific to this location reflected a tastefully decorated and decent furniture in the rooms. What we found was an "off" odor, carpet not vacuumed, a huge tear in the couch and a child size table for a desk. No other room was available. If I can figure out how to post pictures, I will.

"Not bad. Great staff!"

20/07/2016

The beds were comfy. Nice shower. Daughter loved the pool. Wonderfully friendly staff! Loved the breakfast! Try the waffles, they are really good and you get to make them yourself! The negatives are that the room smelled. Front desk did give us some febreze that helped for a little bit. Our neighbors were extremely loud and a couple times the whole wall shook. However, staff handled the situation and we had a good rest of the night. Wifi was passable, not the best but could connect. Hotel is in a decent area with easy access to 26 and restaurants close by.

14/07/2016

I will never stay here again. Our room reeked of cigarette smoke. When we told the staff member, she came to our room and remarked that she didn't smell a thing, as if to insinuate that we're either crazy or difficult customers. Not professional in the least.

"Superb Staff"

05/07/2016

I was very happy with my stay. The staff was always very courteous. However, cleaning my room was slow. I have a dog and I wanted to be on the property when they cleaned my room. I would take my dog out while they cleaned room. That only worked out once. This held up my plans by 2-3 hours each day except 1 day. Of course the day I'm checking out they were there earlier. I wasn't able to lock my things up on the safe. I mentioned it and they said there was a black button inside the safe. I tried it and it seemed like it was going to come on but didn't. I didn't bother to ask for any more help with it. The lady that did my room the first day was awesome. The second day was someone else and she didn't leave cups, coffee or ice bucket liner. The next day she did fine. BUT THIS IS A GREAT HOTEL BUT IT IS EASY TO PASS UP THE WAY IT IS LOCATED.

The breakfast was terrific. It was a very nice variety of hot and cold items. Everything was refilled right away. All of the staff members were so friendly and helpful. One housekeeper even came after us in the parking lot because we had left an item in the room. Above and beyond

Stayed at this property for 2 weeks. Family member was in a nearby hospital. During the 2-weeks, the hallway fire alarm went off twice around 5 AM; fire alarm in my room (not wired to the internal building wiring) went off 2 nights in a row despite being "fixed"; needed to have bathroom sink unplugged; and, no housekeeping for 1 day. Young kids (baseball teams) stayed there over a 3 day period and I confronted them & 3 coaches in the hallway asking them to PLEASE BE QUIET!! around 11 PM 1 evening. Great location for my trip and hospital visits. Property close to main road so had a bit of road noise. I had a room on the backside of the building so road noise level was OK. Construction crews and heavy equipment were up and moving too early for me. Breakfast was good. Front desk staff were very polite. Will stay there in the future.

We were visiting Charleston for a few days, but wanted to stay a good bit out of the big town and we are glad we found this. The entire facility is very clean the rooms, pool area, breakfast area etc. All staff was very friendly my daughter was upset one morning at breakfast because they ran out of bagels and the older lady working got her one from the back and that made her day. Has a nice little pool to take a dip in after a long hot day in the sun also. Priced reasonably for the area too. I recommend this hotel to everyone.

Great location in Ladson, we picked this hotel while visiting family bc it was very close to them. Great price for 3 night stay. The continental breakfast was ok, eggs were awful, but we only ate there for one of the mornings. Only bad thing to say is the cleaning people would knock on your door around 9:30-10am asking if you wanted your room clean. We were sleeping after a 12 hour drive and this woke us up. Nothing else to complain about. I would stay here again and leave the do not distub sign out to prevent this.

Property is CLEAN. Located off 2 major roadways, but with NO road noise. Only drawback was the pool was not "outdoors", partially under the building. Even though they were is a "sold out" situation, all staff was exceptionally gracious & helpful.

I was hoping when I made this reservation that it was a good choice for a hotel and I was not disappointed. The check in and out was efficient, the bed was very comfortable and the overall experience was excellent. I would definitely recommend this hotel to other and stay there again!

Good stop and stay as we prepared to leave for a cruise from the Port of Charleston. Staff was totally helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very good just wish they had boiled eggs instead of overcooked scrambled eggs. Waffles, toast, bagels, cereal, yogurt, milk, coffee, tea, etc. One problem with room - whoever installed the Curved Shower Rod (great idea) did not understand the concept and mounted it so far back that the curtain still is same level as the tub. Also the room feels a little like it needs a thorough cleaning - not dirty - just feel it. Entire hotel could use a major face lift, but good for a one or two night stay. Would stay again.

"Pleasant Stay"

Our son booked this hotel. He thought it was closer into Charleston instead of a suburb but it only took 15-20 min in rush hour traffic to get to the French Quarter. The location is immediately off the I26. Our room was quiet & the beds comfortable. We didn't partake of the breakfast.

The few times I do get to the Charleston area, I have always stayed at this hotel. The Hotel is clean and the staff is always friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I can't say enough about the delicious breakfast choices! Eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, grits, oatmeal, apple and orange juice, waffles, pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt, and oh yes, coffee! Try this hotel. You won't be disappointed.

We were amazed at the friendly service we received at this hotel. We travel with a cat and they made her feel like the queen of the place. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great, did not expect a full breakfast like this at this price hotel. Would stay here again anytime!

Room was very nice. Clean and comfortable. Couch, desk and King bed. This was a business trip but plenty of things to do at the end of the day. Just a short ride into Charleston SC. Plenty of shopping nearby and lots of sites to see. Would definetly stay here again.

This hotel provides a comfortable stay and excellent service. We stayed for two nights so that we could tour Charleston. Hotel is about twenty minutes from downtown so very convenient for this purpose. The only downside was that we had to go to Summerville to get a variety of restaurants, though it is not far away. All in all, we were very pleased with our stay - clean, comfortable beds.

"Another pleasant stay"

As always, the Best Western Magnolia Inn & Suites provided a clean, quiet, comfortable room with all the basic amenities required for a very nice stay. We always choose this hotel when traveling to the Charleston, SC area. It's conveniently located just off I-26 and surrounded by forest to help keep the highway noise at bay. Looks like they've upgraded the decor to a nice, contemporary look. I highly recommend this hotel.

"Good place to stay!"

On our way home from Florida, we stopped in Charleston for the day, then stayed at the Best Western Magnolia Inn in Ladson, which isn't too far away. The hotel was a nice find. We stayed in a king bed room, non-smoking for a reasonable price. Free hot breakfast, which was very good. The room was quiet, clean, spacious, and bed was very comfortable. We were tired and that was our main objective. I am not sure of their other amenities, as I only wanted a good night's sleep.

"Quite Room"

10/03/2016

We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Magnolia Inn and Suites. It is a very quite location and outside Charleston just far enough. Easy on and off the freeway with access to lots of restaurants. We will stay here again if we are in the area.

Arrived a day early and it was booked.They called other hotels, all booked. Jody, the desk clerk remembered that there was a reservation that might not show so she called and sure enough they were not coming so we were able to get a room for that night. The next morning we introduced ourselves to Kat, in charge of the dining room. She prepared the best breakfast of any Best Western we have ever stayed at. The room was spotless and every employee was friendly and kind. Lizzy, the manager runs a great hotel. A must if you are in the area or even if your are not.

I was traveling to South Carolina to see my daughters play soccer. It was very nice to get off the highway and have quick access to everything within 10 minutes from the hotel. It felt secluded enough to not feel in any danger and was still close enough to everything that we didn't need to drive long distances. Over all it was a great stay. I wish there was an offer for military discounts, that would have certainly helped.

"Disappointed, not up to standards."

16/02/2016

I'll just list the good and bad. The good: quiet enough, what has been updated (lobby, breakfast) looks very nice. The bad: hard uncomfortable bed and sad sad pillows (both of which leads to neck, head, back, hip pains); Dirty dirty room (very poor cleaning), fridge and micro although new stunk so bad and were just covered in fingerprints, yellow crust on questionable towels, dried something or other on nightstand; Bad odor in room (it smelled like an entire can of cheap chemical-laced air freshener had been emptied in the room, it actually caused throat irritation. Even after opening window, it didn't help much. What's really crazy is the room door was wide open when we checked in around 6pm of which we were told "oh maid probably forgot to shut door and finish room" since a pillow was also left sitting on nightstand with no pillow case. So that room door must have been open for a few hours I'm guessing and room still smelled horrendous of chemical someting). Did I mention door was warped which is why it would get stuck and not close, you could see hall light very clearly around top, bottom and one side. Last but not least, technology challenge...Weak WiFi didn't work much at all and remote didn't work either. After a few trips downstairs to get pillowcase, trade crust-towel for clean one, and get batteries for remote (which still didn't work), we decided to give up on this best western and cut our stay to one night and move elsewhere. Tips to hotel... Train cleaning staff to actually clean surfaces and replace towels even if they are left folded on rack from previous guests, get rid of old blanket in between top sheets with new one, deoderize horrific smelling fridge and micro, don't use cheap air freshener to mask stink, get decent pillows and mattress toppers, replace wonkey doors that don't close right, and get WiFi set up so guests can use it with more then one bar weak signal. that should do it.

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of night over the weekend. It was a very pleasant stay. Great Breakfast. Hotel have many upgrades since my last visit about 3 years back. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and family.

"Not worth the savings..."

15/02/2016

We found a good deal on Expedia for three nights for our babymoon to Charleston (about $80/night). We soon realized that we should have just paid more for a better hotel. It started with the check in - we arrived at the hotel at 1:30am after a delayed flight, so needless to say we were exhausted. The two women at the front desk had no idea what they were doing and took 40 minutes to check us in. They couldn't figure out how to see if a room was already occupied in the computer and so had to go up to the room to see if it was cleaned and ready to go. The first room was smoky (although the hotel is non-smoking), so we had to go through the whole rigmarole again for another room. By the time we got into the room, we just wanted to sleep - fat chance of that happening! The highway noise is unbearable and the walls are so thin that we could hear the people above and next to us. In addition, the door to the bathroom was incredibly squeaky, so we had to leave it open during the night so we didn't wake each other if we managed to catch a few winks of sleep. Just FYI - this is with two white noise apps going. The noise didn't abate throughout the entire trip, so needless to say we arrived home more exhausted than we arrived to our trip for "rest and relaxation." Furthermore, the ladies at the front desk when we arrived the first night assured us that we could arrive to breakfast up to 10am and that they were slow to put the items away, but it was already half cleared when we arrived at 9:50 (since we had only been to bed a few hours prior). My husband also found a small roach in the bathroom. We were very disappointed with our experience and would definitely not recommend it to anyone.

"Returning back home after Cusco, Peru"

30/01/2016

the hotel was superb, better than the one we stayed in Cusco, Peru also a Best Western Majestic which did not have air condition or elevators for a person with 14 broken ribs and the air so thin at almost fourteen thousand feet above sea level which it makes it a little hard to breath going up and down to the third floor after walking the plaza, shops and the town

Very nice folks, especially Jodi. She helped me with my reservations and also checked me in. Made sure I had a room near a exit so I could step out and smoke. I will return here when I am back in this area.

"Overpriced for the location"

13/01/2016

The room was too cold, then too hot, then too cold again in the middle of the night so we did not sleep well. I cut and bruised my finger on the hairdryer because I did not notice the back of it had fallen off and the blades caught my hair, but cut my finger. The breakfast was not the best either and a couple were screaming and cussing at each other in the parking lot behind the place when were parking to check-in on a Monday night around 10pm. No bueno

This hotel is extremely close to the interstate and a local highway. You will hear traffic all night. Also, during our stay there were lots of noisy people inside and out in the parking lot. It was not a holiday, so I don't know if this is the norm for them. Breakfast was good though!

"Horrible Customer Service from Hotel Manager"

16/11/2015

Found this hotel through Travelocity - got it because of price. Arrived at 12:30am to be greeted by a very sweet and helpful Front Desk attendant (unfortunately didn't get her name). Called the next morning for a late check-out and was approved. We stayed 30 minutes longer than the late-check out time - but talked to the maid who was to clean our room and she told us it was not a problem - she had another room to clean then would do ours. Upon leaving the hotel manager, Elizabeth, informed me that I would be charged an additional $25 for the room - her maids were gone and she now could not rent out the room. I explained I had been granted a late checkout by the front desk - and cleared it with the maid, too. I told her again that I spoke with the maid and she was there & fine with us leaving when we did. She was rude and would not remove the charge. Beware!

"Nice hotel with minor problems"

15/11/2015

This hotel is located just off of the highway. Check in was prompt. Room was nicely decorated with comfortable beds. The heated pool was an average size and clean. The pool towels were not at the pool but could be obtained at the front desk. Room had a small safe that was locked, called the front desk and was told that only management or maintenance could open the safe and neither were onsite. The next morning i went to the front desk to get towels for the pool and was told the pool was closed for the year. There were no signs posted that the pool was closed. The pool was under the second floor rooms and was open to the outdoors. The breakfast was good and well stocked.

We stayed here for one night. The check-in was friendly. We got a room upstairs, but there was an elevator. Our room was clean an quiet. The free breakfast was good. There is a construction side in the hotel. We saw it but we didn't hear anything. Behind the building is an outdoor pool. We would stay here again!

27/10/2015

Nice hotel, great location 20 minutes from downtown Charleston. Breakfast was good only complaint was the 100 for a dollar paper plates, assume this was a onetime situation. Friday night the hotel had booked a significant number of rooms, for a large group of football children with little to no adult supervision. They ran the halls on all floors with no supervision, screaming and hooting for an hour or more. At 11:10 PM I called the desk and was informed that they (one lady on staff) were trying to get the kids in their rooms, I said I am calling the police if it doesn't end quickly. Within 15 minutes things quieted noticeably. That the hotel was clearly under staffed, and that they had no active plan for this situation was obvious. Please continue to read: Saturday morning brought the exit of the children and their supposed supervision. Saturday night was pleasant and much quieter, later that evening I got sick from a meal at a national chain restaurant. The hotel front desk was caring and amazingly prompt in assisting all our needs for new linens and extra blankets. We would stay again after checking to see if they had any large groups with children booked. My only other issue was paper thin (sound wise) room doors allowing guests to hear any hallway conversation. The rooms were well equipped, clean and the bath room was large.

"Convenient to Charleston"

27/10/2015

We stayed here to attend a wedding being held in Charleston. The rate was a lot less that if we'd stayed downtown Charleston and it was a very easy drive to get downtown. Located right off the interstate made it very convenient too. Renovations were ongoing but not an interference with our two night stay.

I checked in on Friday, September 11, with my girlfriend. The person at the front desk was very pleasant and nice. My girlfriend and I were going on a cruise on Monday but we found out on Saturday that she had forgotten her passport and when it was sent to her she hadn't realized it was expired. Everyone at the front desk tried to help us to get on the cruise ship, but to no avail. We decided to make the best of it and toured Charleston from top to bottom. The staff gave us recommendations, helped us with reservations and were just amazing from the maids, to the kitchen folks, to the front desk manager, Lizzy, who nicknamed us - Thelma and Louise, to the manager himself. The beds were awesome; the room was clean, quiet and the amenities were good - refrigerator, safe, microwave and coffee. Everything was great - in fact, our second week was spent at a time share and we called them on Friday, Sept. 25, and we were able to get our same room and had the same great staff! Thanks to everyone! PS - there wasn't anything we liked least - it was all good!

"A Bit Dated, But Affordable"

08/09/2015

Recent stay was okay. Room was okay, but, the one I stayed in also felt a bit empty. Flat screen TV was a bit small for the room and the extra space and dated fixtures made it feel like something was missing like an additional furniture hutch or a larger table, etc. Breakfast included was okay too. The usual eats such as assorted dried cereal, yogurt, seasonal fruit, waffle iron with batter, coffee/tea, etc. I did not have time to check out the on-site pool, but when I checked in I noticed lots of people by that area. For me it was okay for a quick stay, but other than that I probably would have been uncomfortable and wanting more amenities in the room.

There was mold in the shower, the room was very dusty/dirty, the elevator was broken upon arrival so we had to take the stairs (I understand that this is out of the hotel's control, but it is part of a long list of disappointments), the coffee pot was never cleaned from the previous guest(s), the noise level was very high (little noise insulation between rooms), and considering all this, the price was too high. On a positive note, the staff was friendly.

Lizzy L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Magnolia Inn and Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We truly apologize that your stay was not satisfactory. We truly apologize for the elevator issue. Unfortunately a part broke on a Friday evening and they had to fly the replacement part into Charleston. We do have a 24x7 maintenance contract with the elevator manufacturer but they were not able to locate it locally. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. Your satisfaction is important to us and we will be using the feedback you gave us to implement improvements to ensure we offer a better experience for guests in the future. We wish to see you back again when you visit Charleston area. Please feel
