Docks are in good shape. Facilities nice but far from the T-dock. Dock hands helpful. No restaurant and situated in the medical district, so far from tourist and city attractions. Uber rude to town $20 each way, $30 on 4th of July.

Very nice stay. Dock hands are pleasant to work with. There's a Publix within walking distance and terrific restaurants all around!

I was really impressed with the security, but disappointed in my dock slip:( The other boat in our group was fine. In the future, I know to make sure that I confirm we have an entire slip. I was not even negotiating pricing, I didn't care. I wasn't looking for a bargain, I wanted my boat taken care of. Oh, we were given a credit, a whopping $11.50 each! That isn't what we wanted or was even asking for. For convenience and safety it was awesome, but I now know what questions to be sure and ask when booking because in the beginning I was led to believe I had a slip for "each boat".
Marina Response:
Carter Family- We appreciate the kind words as safety and convenience is our number one priority. Just a reminder that marinas are able to book according to demand (busy holidays) as long as it is safe and convenient for boat transients and guests. During your next stay, please don't hesitate to utilize our seasoned dockhands to assist with getting in and out during business hours. If you are ever not sure on docking and launching within the marina, we are always glad to help. We look forward to you staying with us again soon!

Always enjoy our stay at Ashley. Only regret that the washing machines/room was cleaner and chairs were available. Need a shuttle available.

Very accommodating Dockmaster for our slip request. Great deckhands. Nice showers.

by howardkirshner on May 14, 2021
Great marina with nice wooden floats and great dockhands as well . Very close to Publix supermarket .

by awwbaker on May 11, 2021
Great team! Worked hard to be sure we were safe and secure...Will is the best!!!

by larryd53 on May 09, 2021
I was at this marina for three nights. It needs a makeover and needs to set minimum expectations for the boats who use it. There were a lot of boats with decks covered with junk, boats that clearly are never moved from the docks and boats so dirty on the outside that the inside must be a health hazard. Every cement piling was covered with chipped and peeling paint. Slips are not clearly numbered. With numerous marinas in Charleston, I will be trying somewhere else on my next trip through.

Very helpful friendly

convenient ,very nice staff that remember us from our previous visits, feel welcome

by billowings on Oct 25, 2020
Approach was ridiculous considering the narrow entrance lines with boats... Other than that very nice experience.

by davidwheeler on Aug 28, 2020
I am new to this site and this was my 1st time using - I loved the reminder phone call they would be closing & they gave me my information over the phone on after hours access

by kevinwilson on Aug 16, 2020
Very nice we will be back

by crspang on Jul 19, 2020
We had a great time. The deck hands are very helpful. Would have been 5 stars if the showers and baths would have been clean.

by 1061db on Jul 19, 2020
Recommend limiting the number of ice bags a boater can get. 2 days in a row marina was out of ice as a commercial fisher bought all the bags in the cooler leaving none for anyone else docked there.

by tgreene1102 on Jul 06, 2020
The slip was conveniently located for our purposes. The ice was a bit expensive but I guess you pay for convenience.

by ccdurante on Jul 05, 2020
Very enjoyable experience!! Everyone very helpful. Great facilities!

by triciarogers on Jun 28, 2020
Nice marina for Charleston. The waters were calm there and it’s a dog friendly place

by abarksdale on Jun 23, 2020
Excellent communication when I requested my reservation. The docks are in great shape. Fuel dock was well staffed.

by pabitt on Jun 08, 2020
We have stayed here multiple times an the staff is always very professional and courteous. I will always stay here when I'm in Charleston.

by woolznaz on May 29, 2020
Location is really the primary strength of this marina. It did allow us to explore Charleston by bicycle very well, and that was what we wanted to do. There is also a new Publix (grocery) that is within pretty easy walking distance. The docks were floating, but just in OK condition. The showers were messy enough we chose not to use them and we are NOT that picky. The internet was hit or miss. We had the necessities (power, water, and a dock) in a good location for Charleston, but I would say that was about it. The dock workers were nice and considerate, which is always appreciated. The marina just needs some updating/attention. Bike racks were overloaded with old, rusty relics with flat tires. I would stay there again, but just expect the basic essentials. The location makes it worth it.

by happyourazimut on May 15, 2020
Always a great spot to stay in Charleston.

by pjrichard53 on Mar 04, 2020
I really like this Marina. Much smaller scale than the City Marina. Dockhands are helpful. Easy pump out. I know they recently installed a new WiFi system, but it still isn’t great.
Marina Response:
Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry our wifi system did not meet your expectations. We pay to make sure it reaches every vessel. Please contact our dock office if you have any issues. 843-722-1996.

Good in and out need to upgrade bathrooms. Also need to work on tidying up docks

by alnbah on Nov 13, 2019
I have stayed here over the years. Nice staff and facilities. Nice that they will provide a ride downtown with their van. Nice showers.

by michelej27 on Oct 21, 2019
The marina was great as well as the staff. Our only 2 issues were the Pump out being down; and not really much area ( if any ) area for taking a dog. They are a pet friendly marina too. ( I have a very little dog and don’t need much )

by jlundie on Oct 06, 2019
Ashley is always a welcoming stay. Great location for access to all that downtown Charleston has to offer.

Great! Easy walk to the hotel!

by lastchantz on Jun 25, 2019
We had several 20 - 25’ boats on a one night stay. We all paid for slips however we ended up stacking 2 boats in one slip. I would have expected to have a reserved spot for each boat.
Marina Response:
We’re sorry our marina did not meet your expectations. We do offer smaller vessels to share finger slips at a discounted rate when occupancy is tight. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at 843-722-1996.

by moonpiesailors on Dec 10, 2018
On time friendly dock hands and competitive rates.Good docking instructions for swift current. Bathrooms and showers needed cleaning and repairing. Courtesy shuttle was great

Older property but great location. Staff was outstanding!

Very nice and helpful staff

by leelynch69 on Aug 14, 2018
Good service and good staff

by davenorth on May 17, 2018
We were late to reserve so we got the spot almost under the bridge. The staff is great, but the boat got dirt from the bridge so I do not think it is right to give a higher rating this time. Hope that is fair to all.

by carrollf on Aug 22, 2017
Wifi not very good...

by mistylynn on Aug 15, 2017
This is our second year of comimg to this marina which is clean and beautiful however this year the staff was not very friendly and did not make you feel very welcomed but that comes with any job and will not prevent us from comimg back next year.

by dhutton1 on May 03, 2017
We told the Dockmaster we. We're inexperienced with currents when he gave us instructions for coming into the Marina and had advised there were strong currents. He proceeded to direct us to a slip and sent a young man to the dock to meet us. The current grabbed us and pushed us into two other boats causing damage to our boat. I begged the dockhand to help us or to find someone who could and he responded there wasn't anyone who could help. Apparently, he was only there, waiting to catch a line. Two. Others came over and advised us to stop and wait for slack tide and then move the boat. We hired a resident boater to move our boat to a face dock. Hmm. If a face dock had been offered in the beginning this whole thing would have been avoided! Later heard this Marina has a reputation of being called "Crash"! The resident boater said he helps others 2-3 times a week who have the same experience. Good to know--too late!
Marina Response:
We’re sorry the marina did not meet your expectations. As you explained, we try to advise all arriving vessels of the present conditions of the river. It is no secret that the Ashley River and Charleston Harbor are capable of having strong currents, and it sounds as if the marina did its job in advising appropriately. We try our best to assign slips based on the conditions to make it as easy as possible for vessels, but sometimes space is limited. We rely on the vessel’s captain to communicate any hesitations when giving slip locations. We utilize our facedock for larger vessels that cannot fit into slips. Depending on the vessel size and duration of their stay, a facedock assignment is rarely offered.
