The room was very nice and appealing. We had two queen-sized beds, a table and two chairs, a chest of drawers, and a TV with cable hookup. The room is typical by moderate standards--nothing overly fanciful, but it serves the purpose. It is clean and well-taken-care-of. The location is excellent. The bathrooms were a nice size, and they had a nice amenities basket, which included Dove products. I loved that, since I very rarely carry my own soap. Since I have to keep allergy shots refrigerated, I was able to get a mini fridge in my room. They do offer them in some rooms--just ask. But if the hotel is sold out, you will need a medical reason to have one. We were able to store drinks and snacks for all three rooms that were with us.
The area around the hotel is very nice and clean. They have plenty of room to exercise Fido if you bring him along. Pets are welcome here, which is always appreciated by those of us without human children but who have furry children in tow. They have a pool, which is very much appreciated in the hot summer months. They do have a coin-operated laundry on the premises, which comes in handy for washing all your dirty laundry, leaving you some free time when you return home. There are several restaurants within walking distance. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. They know the area well, so we were able to get directions without a problem. They also have plenty of information on things to do and see in the area and in Charleston.
The city itself makes a perfect alternative to the more expensive Charleston. Summer rates here only ran $45, and I didn’t even need my travel agent rate. Here you are only 11 miles from the airport, and it only takes about 15 minutes to get into the downtown area. If you are hunting any of the plantations, then you are in luck. This is where you will find many of these. Boone Hill Plantation, which we visited, was only about 5 minutes away. The Yorktown carrier is located near here too.
Since they do accept pets, I am glad to say the Red Roof chain is a sponsor of the Humane Society. For reservations or for more information, you can visit them at www.redroof.com. You will love the location and love the rates even more.

The Red Roof Inn in Mt. Pleasant is located close to everything, and yet it is set out and away from downtown Charleston. Best part is that it is CHEAP!!!
This Motel is clean, the grounds are reasonably nice, and very importantly has a laundry room, (a major plus after five days traveling). Located four miles outside Charleston, just off Hwy.17, it is very convenient,and there is a gas station right across the street.
The rooms are a little run down, but not bad, and the staff were very friendly. Moreover the price was right at $39.95 a night,you can''t beat it.
Check out the pictures, it really wasn''t bad for the price. Note that there is only one washer and one dryer in the laundry room, but availability didn''t pose a problem.
