Verified Reviews of Charleston Grand Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Poor room service"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Rooms aren't properly cleaned before check in and during your stay, while the bathroom may have a touch up the rest of the room is not swept/cleaned. Unusual stains on matresses and linen and a musty smell inside the entire hotel. Tiny cockroaches occasionally scramble in the room and hotel lobby. Pleasant exterior with helpful staff but the rooms and service require improvements.

04-Jul-2016 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Jul 01 to Sun Jul 03 2016 at a $109.99 group rate.
"A Sufficient Hotel"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Didn't feel too comfortable walking around the room without socks and shoes. Wall was open and was missing a wall plate. Closet wall was not square and mirrors in dire need of upgrading.

"Could Not Sleep Very Well."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Would have rated average had we not needed to request another room because of the above problem. Saw a bug in the second room given. Could be a really nice hotel if serious attention given to making repairs and extermination problems. Overpriced for the area.

"Will Never Stay at a Clarion Inn Again!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
We were lied to about shuttles to and from Bridge Run in Charleston, SC and were stranded for over an hour when we finally had to pay for a taxi to get back to the Clarion Inn on Dorchester. The staff never offered an apology, just kept saying it was a free service and we explained it was a drawing factor that helped our decision on where to stay. They laughed about it. I asked when booking our room about shuttles and two more times to make sure we were going to be taken care of and I was assured there were shuttle buses. The buses turned out to be a van, a local taxi co. mini van and a manager SUV. In our group three of us were stranded but I know for a fact there were 25 people stranded. I will never stay at Clarion Inn nor any other franchise with which this company is affiliated.

05-Apr-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Apr 04 to Sun Apr 06 2014 at a £150.43 average nightly rate.
"Still Trying to Sort Out the Room Charges"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Worked with the director of sales, had to cancel 10 rooms of the 62, three days before arrival. 27 of the rooms were charged in single transactions without taxes, the taxes when added were put separately on my credit card. Haven't seen a credit on my credit card yet for all the overcharges. The hotel hasn't figured out how many hotel rooms they had rented. I had 52 rooms occupied, they claim it was more, just because had to switch out players due to injuries.

19-Nov-2013 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Nov 15 to Sun Nov 17 2013 at a $71.00 group rate (20% discount).
