Harborside at Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Quieter alternative to downtown Charleston lodging, but still close to the action
  • Enjoy gorgeous skyline and harbor views from sandy beaches and waterfront pool 
  • Family-friendly resort offers a Mini Mariners program
  • The hotel offers complimentary shuttle service to downtown Charleston 

"Everything was great, except 1 complaint. The reason I gave the room 4 stars instead of 5 is that the walls were thin and could easily hear neighbors. We were awaken at 3:30 am by the person above us walking in high heels. Also heard talking and laughing every night by those beside us. Everything else was perfect."

Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina is "Mount Pleasant's finest hotel" (Fodor's), where you can take in Charleston's skyline and the glimmering waters of Cooper River with your toes in the sand.

Nestled on the Charleston Harbor, this family-friendly resort is a quieter alternative to downtown Charleston lodging, yet just a 10-minute trolley from the heart of the city. The Charleston Water Taxi leaves from the on-site marina and can shuttle guests across the harbor to Waterfront Park and Aquarium Wharf. Have a picnic on the white sandy beach or huge waterside pool and watch one of the harbor's boat shows or sailing events. 

Kids can join the resort's Mini Mariners program (fees apply), with options for dolphin spotting on the harbor or seeing a real-life aircraft carrier, the USS Yorktown, a "kid-magnet" (Travel + Leisure) located just next door. Adults have the opportunity to play captain while navigating a sailboat and can kick back and relax at the resort's restaurants and bars. Guests also have access to beachside fire pits, complimentary bocce, life-size chess, cornhole, volleyball and aqua golf. 

After a busy day of exploration, guests can unwind in their nautical-themed room, equipped with modern conveniences including coffee makers, fridges, flat-screen TVs and pillowtop mattresses. Deluxe Rooms also feature stylish elements like hand-painted headboards, cozy fireplaces, custom cabinetry and upgraded bathrooms with luxurious Jacuzzi tubs, while harbor view rooms boast sweeping views.

Our first visit to Charleston area. Harborside was a great location for visiting the Mount Pleasant, Sullivan Island, and Isle of Palms area. Also, very convenient to Charleston across the bridge. Shuttle was excellent into Charleston. Very good location to watch the ships into and out of the Harbor plus smaller boats. Outdoor pools well maintained. Poolside/marina-side bars very convenient with good, friendly service. Travelzoo deal was for parking lot side, which was fine for the money, but you might want to spring for harborside view.

The shower flooded when used because of the shower door design. When we checked out the hotel charged us for the room even though we told them we paid for it as part of the Travelzoo package. Also we traveled with another couple and our rooms were not comparable; they had a water view, we viewed the parking lot.

We thought the resort was beautiful and clean. There are several pools to swim in and a beautiful view of the water. We were able to catch the sunrise from one of the piers in the morning. Our room had the essentials. Bed was comfy and shower had a nice rain shower head. Staff was friendly. The free shuttle service was a very easy way to get back and forth to downtown Charleston. We look forward to returning!

Not worth the price. Best feature is the waterfront location. Rooms very small and average. Bed worn out and uncomfortable. Climate control ineffective. Continental breakfast should be included as well as parking. Not really a true “resort”.

I read a lot of negative reviews but to me they were petty & went ahead & booked anyway. The room was immaculate & beds were comfortable. I felt the price of the room was reasonable for being a last minute choice.

I left my cell phone by mistake in the ladies restroom. I called immediately & the phone was there. My name was put on the phone when I went back to pick it up. I showed my identification & described my phone. They have a free shuttle service & every driver goes out of their way to welcome you especially Mac!! I would truly go back to enjoy a weekend getaway.

Enjoyed my stay very much with my 3 year old grandson. The room was clean and the only complaint was that I did not get a daily fresh liner for the ice bucket and the cleaning crew left the old melted ice in the container and did not pour it out.
Other Comments
The glass enclosure on the tube was awkward and very difficult and dangerous to get in and out of. It was too close to the toilet. The tub surface was slippery. The swimming pool could have been a lot cleaner.

Beautiful private complex that has everything right there. Clean well landscaped, free easy parking, free shuttle to Charleston, right by the water taxi that you can ride all day for$12.00. Helicopter tours are also very close from the Yorktown.
