    • Compass Cove Hotel, Myrtle beach

      Myrtle Beach Jul 3, 2016 at 7:55 AM

      Help! I am about to drive 10 hrs to Myrtle Beach for July 4th. I had previously had a reservation at the Sea Mist Hotel. Upon reading the reviews, and noticed many complaints about roaches, I quickly cancelled my reservation and searched for another place. I saw good reviews for the Compass Cove Hotel and I booked there. Today, I read reviews on Trip Adviser and while many were good, I saw numerous complaints about maid service and ROACHES. I am PETRIFIED of bugs to the point that I have an exterminator every 3 weeks including the cold PA winters. Has anyone been there and experienced this? Do people in Myrtle Beach not like cleaning or something? I'm so confused

      I am planning a Civil War trip with my three grandsons this summer and they have expressed an interest I going to Charleston this year. We arrive on Tuesday, June 14th and depart on Friday, June 17th. One of the sites I really wanted them to see was the Hunley. However, I just found that the lab and self-guided exhibits are not open to the public during the week. They are willing to arrange a tour for private groups with a minimum of 20 people. I wonder if anyone else is going to be in Charleston on those dates and would be willing to join us for this tour. It is a very interesting exhibit. The cost is $20 per person, $8 for children, and they say to allow around 1.5 hours for the entire experience. If I could find 16 new friends, I would be happ

      Thinking of flying with my wife to Charleston to celebrate my 70th Birthday in mid-May for 3-4 days. Is a car advisable? If so, are there interesting B&Bs outside of the main historical district or are we best off just staying in the HD? We are active and love to walk. Suggestions, please.

      Hotel / Things to Do for a Short Stay

      by Kelmacmar Online Now Feb 20, 2015 at 8:34 PM

      Hello! I'm driving to Boston from Fort Lauderdale and will be in Charleston for a day and a half, from about 6 PM on June 20 until I have to check out of whatever hotel I stay in on June 22. My first question is about hotels. I'll be travelling with two largish dogs and don't want to spend a ton of money, so my hotel choices are limited. I found an inexpensive La Quinta in North Charleston--is this a decent area? I don't know anything about Charleston, so I have no idea about neighborhoods, but the fact that this hotel is so many fewer points in my credit card rewards program than others makes me nervous. My second questions is, if I only have one night and one full day, what should I do? I love history, food, and running if that narrows things down at all.

      Thanks in advance, everyone!

    • What is the best way to see Magnolia Plantation and Gardens?

      by darlings Online Now Feb 5, 2015 at 5:22 AM

      My husband is reluctant to drive a car (renting of).
      Could you recommend an excellent Tour Company for Charleston to Magnolia Plantation?
      We will get accomodation in Historic Charleston.
      I do not want a BUS TOUR although a mini-van is o'k.
      I have researched these Companies: Charleston Tours, Charleston's Finest, Adventure Sightseeing.
      Pick-up at hotel would be coonvenient. We particularly like gardens with lingering time there. Charleston Ventures does not conduct Garden Tours.

      How much would a taxi cost there & back?

      Any further help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks in advance. N.Grace

      We're spending the weekend before Christmas in Charleston as we did last year. The location and rate at the King Charles Inn couldn't be beat. We have seen the Market, slave mart, Ft. Sumpter, Magnolia Plantation, Rainbow Row, Old Exchange... it's all up on V.T.

      We have enjoyed Jestines for a casual lunch, Hyman's wasn't too special. Any dining ideas?

      I've gone through the V.T. websites & agree with all of your tourist traps & pushy time share hawkers. Is there anything that we've missed that we wouldn't see home in NYC? We are not interested in the tourist shows. Any southern & special restaurant recommendations?

      GOOD LOCAL MODERATELY PRICED PLACES TO EAT.

      by Homanded Online Now Apr 19, 2014 at 5:27 PM

      Coming to Charleston for 3 days in June.
      Big foodies here but are more into local places to sample good traditional Southern cooking.
      Doesn't have to be anything fancy, in fact, we prefer it not to be.
      Not touristy but rather somewhere the locals eat.

      Hoping to hear from some people living in the area or who frequent the area often and are familiar with our requisites.

      Thanking all in advance,

      Homer (and Ed).

      Wondering about transportation

      by LeahJ Online Now Aug 1, 2012 at 10:22 AM

      Hello, I'm travelling from Michigan to Raleigh NC via airline and meeting my friend. From North Carolina we are then travelling via car to Charleston (Mount Pleasant) to stay with some relatives of mine. We want to sight see in downtown Charleston, and will have my friend's car, but I've heard that parking can be scarce in downtown Charleston. I'm wondering which mode of transportation is the most enjoyable/most affordable as far as tours of the city are concerned. My friend and I are both very interested in learning as much historically about the city as we can. We don't mind the heat, she's used to it and I love it anyway.

      Thanks in advance,
