Big thank you to the Hampton Inn Daniel, Island
Have you ever heard of Daniel Island, SC? Tennis fans probably have as it hosts the Family Circle Cup Tournament every April, but even though my geography is solid, I had not. But when a friend recommended I stay here as a base of operations for the Charleston leg of my trip, he hit the nail on the head.
Daniel Island is centrally located to Kiawah Island, Wild Dunes, the Daniel Island courses (obviously) and many other golf destinations. Most important courses south of Myrtle Beach are within a half hour...maybe forty minutes with traffic. The Island's Hampton Inn is perfect for a golf traveller or family. It's right on the main thoroughfare, 526 which is the "beltway" of Charleston. Rooms are quite comfortable and well appointed and the prices just can't be beat. The island has a great Mexican restaourant, terrific pizza, some pub with pub fare and has a little shopping of its own, but is convenient to the shopping in Chraleston proper.
The staff have been nothing short of stellar. Manager Duane Parrish's attention to detail and your personal trip needs is a benchmark of good service and Elizabeth, his second in command, fires off any recommendations you need for anything with laser like precision. If you like tennis too, whoa! you just hit the jackpot.
This is a terrific little family place, is in the middle of everything and provides great value.
Here's the vitals:
