Average hotel, with above average staff! A review of Quality Inn & Suites Patriots Pt.

We stayed for one night at this hotel in Mount Pleasant. We booked a standard room, with 2 Queen beds. The room was ok - you can tell the property has had many guests. We were disappointed in the amount of space in our room. From the reviews we read, we expected the room to be larger. The bathroom was very small. The vanity area was in the actual bathroom. The shower felt cramped. The cleanliness was average - stray hair on the sink, dirt in the grout between tiles on the bathroom floor, a pen top and crumpled paper on the floor near one of the beds, etc. Sheets on bed were very thin and so were the bathroom towels. Coffee maker in room looked old and stained - hairdryer in bathroom had general grime on it. The room was also decorated in very dark colors, with very dark carpet and dark furnishings - not my personal taste, but someone else may not care. Hotel was packed with guests, so they obviously do not have a problem keeping rooms booked. I feel this may be because of the friendly, attentive staff. The staff was extremely cheerful and helpful, greeting you all the time with smiles and "good mornings". Cheerful front desk staff will answer questions and gladly give you maps and directions to where you need to go. Free hot breakfast is included. The woman that runs the breakfast is WONDERFUL. She was so friendly and such a sweetheart to everyone. She keeps the buffet stocked with plenty of food including hot scrambled eggs and bacon. I don't think they were "real" eggs, but heck.. they were free! Other items include Danishes, oatmeal, grits cooked in a crock pot, cold cereals, toast and biscuits. Check in and check out was easy and efficient - no problems at all. The actual hotel room itself gets a " C ", but the staff gets an A plus! We paid $119.00 a night, plus tax for the room. I felt this was a bit pricey for this sort of lodging.. but for the Charleston area, this is considered a "budget" hotel. If you are watching your pennies, there is a great budget restaurant around the corner. Nothing fancy, but they serve the best pizza, calzones and salads, etc. It is called Andolinis. The two of us ordered a lot of food for $19.00. The entrees and pizzas are served piping hot and freshly prepared.
