Hayne House Bed and Breakfast: Historical house

We stayed at Hayne House Bed and Breakfast which was owned by a family, the McGreevys who still lived in the house with their children (didn't disturb stay at all) and had done a lot of restoration work.
The house was built in 1755 and was associated with a Revolutionary War hero, Isaac Hayne.
It was reported to be listed in Fodor's "Best Bed and Breakfasts in the South" (2000).

Our second floor room , the Wisteria Room, was very charming with antiques and a nice bathroom. My friend slept in the big cushy bed in the middle of the room, while I was more than content to sleep in the twin bed next to the window where I could smell a wonderfully sweet odor (it was later identify as Confederate jasmine).
A delicious breakfast was served family style (though there was places for privacy, such as the garden if that was what you wanted).
There was a very nice parlor downstairs for reading and hanging out if that's what you wanted.
The hosts were very helpful when it came to restaurant recommendations and information about history and current event in Charleston.

Hayne House Bed and Breakfast: Bed by the window

Since we only stayed in one place in Charleston, I can't give an entirely new tip, but wanted to stick in a photo of our Hayne House bedroom and my little bed by the window.
My friend is the one who handles the accommodations when we travel together, and she said that rooms seem to be really limited if you want two beds. I guess the world is geared for couples and they usually get the best rooms.
(Our room in Savanah was down in the basement, though it did open into the courtyard).
I certainly had no problem with our room in Hayne House, however; it was perfect.

The Cannonboro Inn: http://www.charleston-sc-inns.com/cannonboro/index.htm

Wild Dunes Villas: Wild Dunes Resort

Wild Dunes Resort is a great place to stay. Many families and new construction will bring great new shops and restaurants. We stay in a 'villa' of my Father in Law's and are able to ride the bikes around the resort, or drive a short distance to Edgar's to get a quick bite to eat.
Edgar's is on the island within the resort. Mornings, we ride our bikes to the little golf shop and get Starbucks and take it, and the paper to the beach to watch the waves. Usually, we'll head over to Charleston to explore during the day or hang out at the beach pavillion.

Wild Dunes RESORT

While staying in a villa, the accomodations surrounding (The Boardwalk Inn) are great. They have added new restaurants (The Lettered Olive) and the Market and updated the area surrounding the Boardwalk. Very nice!

1843 Battery Carriage House Inn: Beautiful Historic B&B

Historic carriage house B & B in back of a gorgeous mansion on the Battery surrounded by a garden. Could it get any better? There are also garden level rooms in the mansion that are part of the B & B.

Beautiful. Ask about the room you want though, there are alot of ghost stories about certain rooms. They have even been featured on TV shows about haunted places.

Stay in a bed & breakfast. ...

Stay in a bed & breakfast. Charleston has an abundant selection to choose from. Once I remember where we stayed I will put it on this page, it was very nice in the historical center, quiet, large, inexpensive for the area, and an attractive interior.
$110 per night.

There are so many good places...

There are so many good places to stay that it would be impossible to list them all here. Some people prefer to book their accommodations in the Historic District which tends to be a bit more expensive than the other areas. The types of lodging are as diverse as the price ranges. Then there are the resorts on Kiawah and Wild Dunes that are an experience all their own.

link directly to over 100 Charleston area hotels, motels, inns, B&Bs and resort rental web pages. The properties are divided by geographic area.

It is amazing how many people arrive in Charleston without having booked reservations. During the two peak seasons (March-May and September-October) or during one of Charleston's many special events,(i.e. Southeastern Wildlife, Spoleto, Tour of Homes) vacancies are hard to find.
If you wind up searching for a room at the last minute, rates are sometimes HIGHER not lower.
Off peak times are November thru mid-February (excluding holiday weeks) and the summer months.

Accomodation in Charleston...

Accomodation in Charleston proper is quite expensive so if you are traveling by car, it's much less costly to stay off of the peninsula, over either bridge. The tourist information desk is quite helpful in finding places out of town and have pamphlets with discount coupons which are good on rooms during the week.

With parking not a problem in town, it's not so bad making the 10 minute commute into town and many other attractions are actually out this way anyway, like Boon Plantation.

Not So Hostel: A lovely hostel...

This is a very nice and clean hostel. It has free pancakes for breakfast and Internet access. If you are driving, they have a big parking lot in the back.

The bad things... it's far from everything and if you are not driving, a 45 minutes walk is not that nice. Plus the neigborhood is not very nice. Anyway, Charleston is not a late night city... so you don't go back to the hostel that late.

Mt Pleasant

To get a good deal on accomodations (that is, to stay near the city without spending all your money), try Mt. Pleasant. It's just over the bridge from downtown; a cab ride is relatively cheap. And the price of a room is a lot less than it is downtown.

Ashley Inn Bed and Breakfast: Historic Bed and Breakfast

This is a historic building that has been converted into a bed and breakfast. It is extremely welcoming and you really do feel at home.

It is reputedly haunted! The location is excellent, right in the heart of the historic district, although a fair walk from East Bay Street. It also has off-street parking which is quite a bonus in such an expensive city.
