My aunt, brother, and I were in Charleston for a 2-day visit, and we booked reservations at the Harbour View Inn. Immediately we were impressed with the nice service. A well-mannered employee parked our car in the garage for us while another kind sir held the door open as we stepped into the first floor. The lobby was nice, and so were our rooms. Comfortable beds and nice furniture filled the large rooms, and we received many complimentary items, such as bottled water, chocolates, shower caps, bath grains, and mouthwash. Also, we filled out breakfast menu cards and were served breakfast on the terrace (which, by the way, gives you a breathtaking view of the ocean). Service couldn't have been better. After a long day of tourism, we came back to our rooms to find neatly made beds and clean bathrooms. There WERE a few cons, though. It's kind of pricey to stay at this hotel, and the building is beginning to show its age. I spotted cracked/peeling wallpaper near the ceiling. Not a big deal, but - I don't know - it might bother some people.
Pros: nice, great service, lovely view from the terrace
Cons: pricey and kind of old
