Review Summary


Pros

  • Spacious lobby with pretty wood floors and lots of seating
  • Wide variety of food at the continental breakfast bar
  • Free self-parking and free Internet
  • Small pool is clean and surrounded by palm trees
  • Walking distance from Charleston Harbor
  • Less expensive than Historic Downtown hotels

Cons

  • Downtown Charleston not within walking distance
  • Some rooms look a bit worn, with scuffed furniture and mildewed shower heads

Bottom Line

This 120-room chain hotel offers basic accommodations, with warm color schemes and dark wood furnishings that include full-wall armoires with built-in desks. Some rooms are showing signs of wear, however, with scuffed furniture and mildewed shower heads. The hotel's location in Mount Pleasant puts downtown areas just out of walking distance and a car will probably be necessary. But if you're up for the extra effort, it'll most likely save you a buck or two between the less expensive nightly rates and the free parking.

Location

Located in Mount Pleasant, a suburban area to the east of Historic Downtown; not many tourist attractions are in the area, but most are just a short drive away

Map of Hampton Inn Charleston/Mt Pleasant-Patriots Point

Not too many attractions are within walking distance, but Historic Downtown is just a short drive away. A few restaurants can be found in Village Pointe Shopping Center, about a mile from the hotel.

Mount Pleasant is a large suburban area just east of Historic Downtown Charleston. It is home to several historic sites, like the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum. Cooper River runs between Mount Pleasant and downtown Charleston, which visitors can travel over by foot via a pedestrian lane on the Arthur Ravenel Bridge. It's a fairly long walk, but it's doable. A car would definitely be of good use if you're staying in this area, though.

With the Harbor surrounding Mount Pleasant, there are also various water activities available, like sailing and biking along the Mt. Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park. A few golf and country clubs also dot the area.

  • 20-minute drive to Charleston International Airport
  • 10-minute walk to Village Pointe Shopping Center
  • 15-minute walk to Mt. Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park
  • 7-minute drive to Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum
  • 10-minute drive to Historic Downtown Charleston
