Guest Recommendations
Charleston La Quinta
"Our room was very clean and kept that way the whole time we were there. We loved the location at the Marina. The hotel was centrally located to Charleston and Folly Beach which we love. A really good breakfast was included with the price of the room. The hotel employees were very friendly and helpful."

A Good Review for La Quinta Charleston Riverview
"The La Quinta Riverview was an excellent choice for me because it was located a short drive away from Historic Charleston and more importantly, it was affordable. My room was clean and comfortable. The staff members were very courteous and helpful."
Naida from Fort Bragg, NC US rated La Quinta Inn Charleston Riverview 8 out of 10 on September 25, 2010
Joe from Cocoa, FL US rated La Quinta Inn Charleston Riverview 8 out of 10 on September 13, 2010
"First, the seasonal price ($139) was quite high for what we got. Our first night and following morning, we had no hot water. I overheard the front desk telling another customer that someone was "working on it" and should be fixed in an hour. It wasn't. Our "NO-SMOKING" room smelled like cigarette smoke. At check-out, the front desk told us the manager would be sending "compensation" to those affected by the hot water crisis (a free night?) I'm waiting to see what comes. The continental breakfast was below average. The only things we liked were the location and proximity to downtown and we were walking distance to a good restaurant - California Dreaming. This Hampton is NOT worth $139 per night."
