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. Have a picnic on the white sandy beach or huge waterside pool and watch one of the harbor's exciting boat shows or sailing events. 

Kids are going to love joining the resort's "Mini Mariners" program, dolphin spotting on the harbor and seeing a real-life aircraft carrier, the USS Yorktown, a "kid-magnet" (Travel + Leisure) located just next door. Adult will finally have the opportunity to play captain while navigating a sailboat and can kick back and relax at one of the resort's three restaurants or bars. 

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

The resort is comprised of two buildings. I stayed at the older of the two buildings...the one with the red roof. The TravelZoo rate was great...the resort fees were waived. The exterior of the hotel and grounds were lovely, although the small pool was closed for maintenance. The resort offers a free trolley into Charleston and the water taxi is a short walk at the end of the pier behind the complex. That is not free, but a reasonable $10 for a daily pass. However, my room was a bit sad, and definitely needs a renovation. And the main downside is that the older red-roof building does not even offer a continental breakfast. Guests have to walk out doors about the equivalent of a long city block to the Fish House restaurant, which has a fabulous view, but meals are a bit pricey, but not outrageous. The new building next door was opened in Sept. 2016 and is gorgeous! Rates are much higher there. But guests staying at the older property can use the beautiful pool next door.

The location was very convenient, and having the shuttle to Charleston was a plus. The room was comfortable and the ocean view with the sunset was nice!

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was very comfortable. One thing that was not great was the mini-fridge was stuck at freezing so everything we put in there froze. Adjusting it down to the lowest setting didn't help at all. This was room 435.
