"Holiday Inn Riverview"
It was a nice hotel.Very clean and the staff were friendly. The food in the restaurant was very good and we would likely stay there again in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice but too expensive for this comfort."
The breakfast was ok but on my next trip i don't need it again. The room was ok. The bath is too small and the location is near the interstate so you can hear all day the traffic. very nice is the bus to downtown.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Drafty room w/a view"
Great view, but difficult entry & access to hotel, especially at night. No fridge or microwave in room, so must eat in restaurant or leave. Restaurant also has no Vegetarian Entrees, but it's view from the top is fantastic. The king bed was comfortable, room had a nice skyline view of Charleston, was clean and staff was helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Could have been better"
I booked this hotel for the view, as advised, paid about $125 and ended up being in a room facing the parking lot! I asked for upgrade answer was we fill the hotel from top going down and we have nothing available now! Opening the curtain to see the car park was a nightmare, windows are filthy, the whole 'behind the curtains' was left uncleaned for […] ages. If you are planning to have breakfast in you better added to package as it's cheaper. There are a couple of iHOPs in the area, and a Waffle House next door. Everyone there is welcoming and helpful, but I don't think I will go there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is older and the age does show. However, the views were so beautiful and the staff was very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Free shuttle service to must see sights ,"
We booked our room a day in advance because we were traveling and not sure where to stay. We picked the Holiday Inn for the Harbor views..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Leak in room"
There was some fluid accumulating in the corner of the room, making the carpet wet. They did not offer to relocate out reduce the rate on the room. I would not go back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location & view."
Hotel is a bit dated. View from rooms can be outstanding, depending on upper floor location. Food was above average and view overlooking the Ashley River and Charleston were terrific. Check in staff was a bit indifferent.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location for many activities."
Breakfast in the tower in the a.m. or a meal or drink at the same place at night is awesome...Great view.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel was great- breakfast terrible staff"
The hotel and location was great and we have stayed here sevreal times before, they have done nice upgrades since we have been there. The only complaint i have is that the breakfast was not very tasty- things were dried out, the service was terrible- wait staff didn't bring menus we had to get our own, we had to chase them down to get drinks, had to […] ask for 3 things to be replaced on the buffet b/c they had been empty for over 15 min each, the manager was rude and never aplogized for the pathetic service, and we had to get up and put our already used plates on a tray (basically clear our own table), I have been to several Holiday Inn restaurants and this one was the worst ever. View was awesome but that doesn't make up for pathetic service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful location. Only disappointment was the quality of the food versus the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great view of Charleston!"
Boyfriend and I stayed for two nights to enjoy downtown Charleston and the surrounding areas. Were greeted by an extremely professional and friendly staff. Enjoyed a breakfast buffet on the top floor restaurant with sweeping views of the area; also enjoyed a wonderful dinner via room service one night. Yummy experience both times, especially the dinner. […] Hotel is in a fantastic location, less than a 5 minute drive to downtown. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel needs repair"
This Hotel needs repair, the sliding glass door to the room,which is bolted shut had a gap in the side of the door which was closed at the bottom but had a 1/2" gap at the top. That was letting in the hard blowing wind and the noise from the traffic going out of downtown Charleston all night. The toilet you had to almost stand on the lever to flush […] it. Room #506 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Could have been a lot better."
Balcony with water view was closed in every room. It would have been nice to sit out there and view the harbor. Drastically Overpriced, horrible value.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Staff good, hotel not so much"
When we checked in we found the room to be a lot smaller than it looked on the website (11 floors of identical rooms), strangely the bathroom was large, fully 1/3rd of the room space but lacked a tub, it just had a shower cubicle. There was a lot of wasted space in the bathroom, you could have put a twin bed in there without hitting anything, and that […] space could have gone to enlarging the room. Even worse the design of the hotel was cylindrical so every room would have a balcony, but the doors were all WELDED shut!. What's the point? That said the staff was wonderful, very courteous and helpful to a fault, it's a shame the hotel itself wasn't on par with the staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
will definitely stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great shuttle to downtown."
We arrived late on a Saturday night and got our room quickly. When we went to our room, it was directly across from the ice machine and very loud. I went back to the front desk and asked to move. The young man at the desk was reluctant, but the manager (I believe her name was Mary Beth) was very nice and told the desk clerk to upgrade us to another […] room. We ended up with a great room and view and really appreciate her accommodating us. The shuttle driver was wonderful and gave us a lot of interesting information about Charleston. We were lucky to be the only ones on the early shuttle to the city on Sunday morning. The breakfast buffet at the rooftop restaurant is a great deal, but our eggs were quite cold as our timing must have been off. They brought out fresh eggs as we were finishing our meal. It still is a good breakfast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good over all!"
Great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It's fairly inexpensive but nothing special."
I would recommend it to someone who doesn't want to spend a lot of money for any extras. Staff was pleasant, rooms are small and functional, there was no window to open - just a permanently locked sliding glass door.Genuine Expedia guest review
I bookedmy room on7/25/2013. Reserations was for 9/13/2013. Wanted two beds. We had only one bed, an it was a single bed.There was two adults planning onrelaxing and celebrating birthday. Even though the overall stay was enjoyable was really disappointed with just the one mall bedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location and friendly staff.."
It was very reasonable and clean...staff were wonderful...close to downtown and the islands. it was good that the Hotel was tall, like a tower...you could see it from a distance and knew you where to go..Genuine Expedia guest review
Only stayed one night but was very comfortable. Web said there was complimentary breakfast but there was not any. We were with a group and enjoyed adjoining rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was a little disappointed with the cleanliness of the room. My husband had surgery and I stayed with him that night at the hospital. When I got back to my room, it was tidied up but the empty shampoo bottles and used glass was still where we had left them .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place to sleep and eatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great accommodations at a great price."
This past weekend I took my first trip to Charleston, SC and stayed at the Holiday Inn - Riverview. I was very pleased with my accommodations as they were affordable, clean, and located in a convenient location. The staff was great, the food was excellent, and the location was close to downtown without the downtown price. I would recommend this hotel […] and plan on staying there the next time I'm in Charleston. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We were there on business, attending a conference, and totally enjoyed the experience. The room was comfortable; employees were pleasant; atmosphere was warm and the food was very good. I would stay there again, without hesitation.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel. Staff was very helpful. Excellent location with free shuttle service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the room was always keep clean and very nice service for the room. the restaurant is another story. Very rude! out of everything on the menu. had to wait 2 hours for service and a long time to eat stuff not even on menu. food was very bad!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"had a great stay"
We enjoyed two days @ this hotel. We were close to everything-waterpark, Folly Beach, Mount Pleasant pleasant eateries. Kids liked eating in the top floor restaurant and swimming in the pool. The on/off lanes to access the parking lot are a bit dangerous at certain times of day, though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I chose this hotel because of how close it was to Charleston Scuba. With only a two minute walk away this was the perfect choice for me. The rooms were clean and kept up. The only issue I had was the mechanism to keep the door locked was loose. So when leaving the room it would move making it harder to get back in. Other than that it was fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time. Great place to visit. A lot of things to do.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to town but less than expected"
The room was clean, but there was no free continential breakfast, only coffee. The hotel is obviously old and the bed was not comfortable. It was close to downtown Charleston but between 2 bridge entrances it was a little hard getting in and out of parking lot. The pool was small. A lot of small inconveniences that added up so that we don't plan on […] staying there again. They also ran out of clean towels and we had to wait a few hours for them to be delivered.

"Best view in charleston"
The room was big and clean. The food was very good. The pool needed a little updating but overall it was greatGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with beautiful view of the bay"
We were more than pleased with the hotel and the view, especially for the price. I would definitely stay there again while in Charleston.Genuine Expedia guest review
"not what I expected"
not pleased with my stay, our key card did not work for our room on two different occasions in one day, the beds were very hard and uncomfortable, you have a sliding glass door with a balcony but the door is screwed shut. The flyer in our room indicated there would be fire works on 8/2 so we ended our other activites so we could go to the top floor […] to see them but they did not have any. The veiw from our room looked like a slum area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Some good... Mostly bad."
The good... Location, its very close to Folley Rd which has pretty much anything you want, including a quick drive to a very nice beach. Also you are right across the river from downtown. The surrounding area is pretty safe, your surrounded by water on 3 sides (2 sides are swampy, but still water). The staff is also helpful for the most part. The rooftop […] restaurant is nice but i can't really comment on it because i really didn't use it more than once. The Bad... The hotel info pack says that they have a nice selection of pillows with varying "fluffiness" which is good because the pillows in the room are awful. I've stayed at my fair share of hotels and these pillows were horrid. Upon requesting another pillow at the desk i was told that those pillows were standard and that i would most likely not be able to get anything else. Also the bed seemed to sink in the middle. You literally had to clime out of a hole when you woke up in the morning (if you ever got to sleep)... The internet connection is also very poor, I would equate it to DSL speed. I gave up trying to use my Ipad after the first night. Last but not least, the water in the shower and sink seem to have a mind of its own, some mornings it took 30sec to get warm, others it took 10min to get to an acceptable temperature, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The only thing we didn't like, was that the balcony doors were welded shut.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Location Good, Amenities Questionable"
We have stayed at this property a couple of times. Property is aging and not everything in the rooms work as they should, at least in the rooms we have stayed in. The air conditioners are marginal - window mounted, running continuously without cycling and controls not working correctly. Shower did not drain in the last room we stayed in - many inches […] of water in the tub after use. Not pleasant when there is more than one person in the room. These issues could be fixed if the staff paid attention to the condition of each of the rooms and maintenance did a thorough repair. Staff should re-check / QA to make sure all is well. The location is suberb, with views from the restaurant / bar likely the best around. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Large hotel near downtown"
This hotel isn't great but it is located NEAR downtown Charleston. It is not at all worth the money you pay for a room. The view is great from 3/4 of the rooms but the 1/4 of the rooms that are leftover look out onto a Waffle House. The beds in the standard rooms are doubles and the rooms themselves are tiny and outdated. When faced with a choice of […] stay here for over $250 or make a drive to North Charleston or Mt. Pleasant, take the drive. There are beautiful, affordable choices around the city and taxis are pretty affordable for those who prefer not to drive after a night out.

Very nice views of the city, great resturant and bar on the top floor that overlooks charleston, awesome staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed 2 nights and the staff was friendly. The shuttle into Charleston was great as parking is limited in Historic Charleston. The breakfast buffett was varied and plentiful but the eggs and meats were not hot.Genuine Expedia guest review
