I have stayed in many La Quintas over the years. A few have been quite run down but most are quite comfortable. This property provided a very restful night' sleep. It was quiet and the bed was comfortable. However, the sink stopper was in two pieces, the wall by the AC was dirty, the steel frame in the bathroom was rusty and there were no locks on the exterior doors entering he building, no trash cans in the room, and no plastic cups, and the coffee maker was dirty. If I stayed in this area again I would stay a bit further out because everything is very easy to drive to and pay less money for a more updated hotel. Breakfast was less than usual too. There were no hot items and the selection was not as good as at other La Quintas.
Must admit I was leary of this hotel after reading some of the reviews, but found it to be an older, but nice place to stay. It was right on the waterfront with nice views. Unfortunately, we were not on the waterfront side, but the room was nice. Would request a room on the upper floors on the waterfront side for a spectacular view. They have a shuttle into Charleston which is nice, but not free.
I stayed here on business recently and wanted to be near downtown. This is a prime location. It is quite popular as you can see it is always busy. This also means that the property gets a lot of use by lots of people. The staff does a good job in maintaining all aspects of the location meaning clean rooms and breakfast area. This hotel offers a good value, clean quiet rooms, good traditional LQ breakfast as well as a safe location - my key points in a hotel stay.
I would stay here again when in the Charleston area.
I have stayed in the LaQuinta Riverview several times in the past 4 years due due to family medical appointments and to visit relatives. I believe this is the best value in Charleston. It is very convenient to restaurants and downtown. I will always stay at the Riverview when I am in the Charleston area.
The reason I gave it a two is because the staff tried to be very helpful and our room was clean and in reasonably good shape. It is also a great location to get to downtown Charleston and within walking distance of a great restaurant. It is 100 feet from the marina.
Having said this. With so many positives, I have no idea why they would let this property get so run down. We stayed in the second building and the outside was filthy. They are easily 4 years overdue for painting. All the doors are horrible scuffed. Going up the stairs there are black streaks going down the outside of the building. The top of the canopies, which you can see coming down the stairs, look like they have never been cleaned. The elevator was disgusting. The inside is stainless steal and at the very least, they should be wiping down the stainless steal every day. The stair railings are chipped and stained and haven't been wiped down. You can walk down a hall from the font desk to the second building. Again, the decorative molding is dirty and worn and the walls desperately need painting.
First, impressions are so important, the lobby needs a complete remodel but what struck me the most was that the tables in the breakfast area were not all clean. It was 5p. All the tables should have been spotless.
Luckily, while taking an early morning walk this morning, I met a local realtor who recommended another hotel. We are paying the same price for much better accommodations.
