    It was okay

    Rooms were okay not great or very comfortable. The dog areas weren’t great and not the nicest grounds.

    Good location

    The hotel is at a good location but the pool was closed and breakfast was a bag with a muffin & a cup of fruit. We also had problems with the shower. Other than that it was good.

    Very Dog Friendly

    We stayed three nights with Annie our Shih Tzu rescue and found the hotel very pet friendly. Unlike some hotels, however, they did not have a dog welcome package.

    Pets are treated as true guests

    The only reason I didn’t give 5 bones was because of little things such as no shampoo provided or glass for water in the room. The main reception area needs some cosmetic improvements. However, when it came to my pup, everything was great. Clean room. Great green space for potty breaks. And the staff was great.

    Great location

    Within 30 min of everything to do in Charleston so was very convenient to run back and check on our pup when we couldn't take her with us. Hotel was clean and right across the road from a marina. Only drawback was there is not much grass for the pups to use so it was a little hard to get mine to potty. Also the noise from the hallway could be loud so left the tv on for background noise. Windows overlooking the marina are cloudy so you couldn't really get a good view. Large parking lot between hotel and restaurant to run some energy off. Was suppose to be in room with exterior door but had to stay in main hotel and take elevator to go out. Was not a problem for my small dog but if you have an aggressive dog or one that cant hold it make sure you get a walk out room. They didn't serve breakfast but had coffee in the mornings. Charleston has a ton of dog-friendly restaurants so just plan ahead as most places had over an hour wait. Make reservations for the restaurant next door for dinner or you wont get in on a weekend night. Will be coming back soon and will definitely stay here again!

    Very pet friendly

    Overall this was a great hotel, very affordable, convenient location, and it's also next to a pet-friendly restaurant.. a lot of dogs in the hotel and several spots to take your dog for a walk outside. I did have an issue with my hotel room; I wasn't given the room that I had booked through BringFido and I'm waiting on the follow up to that concern.

    Good location

    Unfortunately, the room I was in originally had a broken air conditioner that kept my daughter and husband up all night. It was a small room for the both of them and two dogs. I also went on the trip to Isle of Palms and move to the fourth floor which was much nicer. That is the reason why I gave two stars. I went to the pool to relax after a day at the beach and it was supposed to close at 10 o clock but the associate came out and stated she was closing the pool and it was only eight. I was told dogs were allowed on the first floor because they were tile floors. But when I moved to the fourth floor I could hear plenty of dogs. I much rather would have the dogs on the fourth floor. So if you go to this hotel ask for a different floor then the first

    Good and Bad

    The good: great location with easy access to Charleston and a wonderful restaurant just down the street. The bad: the beds in our room had top sheets but no blankets or coverlets, we had only a shred of toilet tissue available (we had to ask for more), and the ice machine in our building was inoperable (we had to use the one in the next building).

    Decent place, dog friendly

    There isn't a whole lot that is within walking distance of the hotel but it is a short trip from downtown.

    Awful experience

    The first room(king suite) I was given had greasy hand prints all over, there were no towels and the garbage cans were in the center of the room. So requested a new room (2 queens this time) this to was filthy, the beds were torn apart and there were dirty napkins everywhere(clearly used.) So again I requested a new room(2 doubles) which was in a separate building. They had at least made an attempt to clean this room. 100% I would not go back or recommend to others. For all the hassle they did credit 50% back after I requested.

    Great Location average stay

    Room had not been entirely cleaned as a used bar of soap and shampoo were in the shower. Hotel is older but recently updated so the stay was average

    Very Dog Friendly

    Lots of dogs stay here but there is no good palace for walking your dog. It’s a very old building with thin walls and our room smelled of cigarettes. I would only recommend this place if you are tight on money and have dogs.

    Perfect for us

    The room was very clean and didn’t smell like dog at all! The floors did get a little sandy during our stay with us and our two dogs going in and out. We heard some barking and scratching during the evening but were never woken up by anyone during the night. There isn’t a huge space at the hotel to let your pup relieve themselves but you can walk along the marina and find some grassy patches if your pup prefers to potty during a walk! We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others. Wasn’t far from downtown at all!

    No way

    No place to walk your dog that was safe. Manager and staff were not friendly. No attempt at serving any kind of breakfast. Would not stay there again.

    Horrible Experience

    I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, I strongly suggest BringFido disassociate themselves from this particular hotel in Charleston so you don’t tarnish your organization

    No dog fee

    Positives- no dog fee, great location

    Negatives- not clean, maintenance was drilling & hammering at 8 am each day.

    Great location, price and friendliness toward pets

    The location is fantastic - their is access to boat slips right across the street and it's near downtown with easy access to James Island. The rooms are large and spacious and the beds were super-comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Everyone was so nice to my two dogs. And the price was awesome (only a $20 fee for my 2 dogs)! I highly recommend La Quinta in Charleston!

    Easy travelin’ with puppy

    Rooms were conveniently located on first floor and uncarprted, so no pet odors. Located beside a harbor which made for pretty walks with our dog. Special trash receptacle for poop bags. A basic hotel, breakfast and pool were closed due to Covid.

    Thin Walls In Guest Rooms

    Location was convenient and great right on the marina for places to walk the dog. Hotel room walls were paper thin, plus the back side of the building is right on the highway, very noisy!

    More than a year ago

    On a road trip from CT to FL and back, we stayed here one night, we showed up 3 HRs early and were able to check in early. Process took only a couple minutes. Room is very clean, bathroom looked updated and very clean as well. Would definitely stay here again. Located in a Marina and walking distance from a great restaurant on the water that is dog friendly! Great food and atmosphere over looking the river

    Dogs everywhere and it was great

    Our dog was one of many staying at the hotel this past weekend and all were welcome. The staff was friendly and it's worth the extra money for the harbor view. There was a full breakfast available. We'll be back.

    Ok for the price

    It is a great place for the price ! Near a dog friendly restaurant.you can walk your d the marina. We chose a room on the street side and it was noisy, next time we will pay the extra charge for a room by the marina.
