Verified Reviews of Best Western Charleston

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Newly refurbished hotel."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We were greeted by Elsie at the desk and she couldn't have been nicer. She recommended some restaurants in the area and told us about the hotel, they had been totally refurbished. Our room was clean and spacious. We enjoyed the rest of the evening, including dinner at Soho, an Italian restaurant located in a nearby farmer's market. Breakfast the next morning was good and typical of hotel cafeteria style breakfasts. Morning guest staff was helpful and friendly.
