Kids will love the Mini Mariners drop off programs filled with child-friendly games and activities when mom and dad want to dig deeper into the history of Charleston without the kids. Located on a marina, the resort features a pool and beach access, so there is water everywhere to make the entire family happy.

There are several different sections to this hotel. Not sure which is what but I would find out before you book. We stayed two times. First time, aside from the cannons going off at Fort Sumter at 4:35 in the morning, the room and the waterfront view were perfect. Room was clean, newly updated and the location of the hotel was great. Second time we ended up in a older side of the hotel and our room smelled like mildew. We tried to move but they were completely booked

I carefully researched this resort. The cleanliness, the location, the newness are all an A++.. But my overall feeling was they might be without management at the moment. Too many standard things were lacking. At nearly $500 a night that adds up to frustration on vacation. Arrived at 7 pm to learn our room was not ready! WHAT? Gave us two free drinks to compensate. First two appetizers we wanted to order at bar they were out of. I asked for a shot in ginger ale - only got the shot and bartender was forever chatting at another table before I could ask her. Strike 2. Went back after an hour - attendant said he had been calling us - no missed calls - no messages - confirmed number - not possible he was calling us.... They upgraded us to a "family suite" for our romantic couples get away? What compensation was two more twin beds for us? - - Next day - no room cleaning, no towels replaced, etc... Saturday NO towels for 6 hours while at the pool. No chairs for many guests. - - - All this is to say - REALLY nice place - with reliable shuttle service, sparkling clean, great pool side service but very disjointed process in the check in- room maintenance and pool process. I really would highly recommend for all the reasons I booked it - but at this price it left us with a bad first impression.
