Location was wonderful! Right on the beach and between two fun bars with great food/drinks and live music. Front desk and housekeeping staff were not overly friendly, however.

No parking got charged to park was not disclosed by orbitz or hotel. No chairs to use by beach. Pool was too cold to use.

The room was spacious and view was lovely from balcony. Worth the extra to have view of ocean. Parking very limited on site… pay to park in city lot a bummer. Walking distance to great food a plus.

I loved my view, my beach theme room. The rooms are small but it worked for me.

Got a partial ocean view room....had to go to the balcony and sit in a corner and lean to see the ocean....wont fall for that again!

The property was very clean. The parking garage was very small. Hard to get in and out of.

The bed and sofa is really the worst for comfort. There was also some missing light fixture in the room that was completed. The refrigerator keep drinks barely cold.

The hotel itself is nice enough, but we had such a disappointing experience. We came down for just one night, we called ahead to find out our room wouldn't be ready on time. We tried to make the best of it and enjoy the beach, but after a few hours we were all tired and hungry and wanted to come get our room. The front desk person was apologetic but never gave us a time the room would be ready, we ended up missing our dinner reservations and never got the keys to our room until 7:40pm. On a one night reservation with

Property was great for beach acsess and walking distance to restaurants. Bathrooms could have been a little cleaner especially floors around baseboards and the baseboards. My comforter had drink spots on it. Dont get me wrong its a great place. Just could be a little cleaner.

It's location in the middle of front beach IOP. The staff is extraordinary. Housekeeping is excellent. There could be better outdoor relaxation amenities.

The check-in was good, the room is clean and the view is beautiful. It’s a very nice property.

Right on the beach. Excellent staff and clean property!

Very personable accommodating staff. Clean rooms. Parking was a little inconvenient, but it was due to the set-up on the Island. Other than that great location, easy access to beach !

Never stayed in a hotel with no windows in the room that look outside. Not goid

Thank you for staying with us. We are sorry our parking policy was not disclosed to you prior to arrival. We will rectify this issue on our online advertising, and will do a better job to communicate. Parking in general is limited on the Isle of Palms, as it is a pristine barrier island with a small amount of development. One of the perks we offer with parking is access to two of the town's Municipal Lots, which just about covers most of the main access points around the Island. All in all, a very good deal. That being said, no one likes unexpected charges, and we will be better with this, in hopes that you will give us another chance - and be a better property for all of our guests.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback! We are happy to hear you enjoyed the beautiful ocean view from your room. The City of Isle of Palms controls parking on the island, and this includes guest parking, but we have recently expanded the small parking garage underneath our hotel to accommodate more guest parking. During the off-season, which is between November 1st and March 1st, there is no parking charge, and you would also be able to park on the street. Should the opportunity arise, we would love the chance to host your next beach getaway!

Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry that you found parking difficult. We are always searching for ways to improve, so we will keep your comments in mind. Parking on the island is controlled by the City of Isle of Palms, but we have been exploring other options, including opening the loading zone underneath the hotel to guest parking. Still, we are glad that you found our property to be clean, and we would love to welcome you back to our hotel should you return to IOP.
