What hotel is closest to the START of the Bridge Run?

Hi - I'll be running the Bridge Run for the first time this year, and I've been told that it may be better to start in Mt. Pleasant near the start and just walk to the start rather than dealing with the transportation very early the morning of the race, and then just get transportation back to the start line after the race is over.

Does anyone know is there are hotels close to the start?

Too bad the Bridge Run's website features paid hotel ads instead of directing you to convenient places to say.

So look at this map to find something yourself. There are many choices in Mount Pleasant near the start of the run.

The race officials have the whole thing so fine tuned, we never found any problem in grabbing a shuttle to the other side from the Historic District.

Personally, I'd stay in the HD, if you can find accomodations. It's a fun atmosphere after the race is over, restaurants are open early, runners are mingling and sharing their stories, and you will be right where you can walk back to your hotel, take a quick shower and then hang w/the others if you want.

It's quite an experience.

We stayed at Shem Creek Inn this past May and very much enjoyed it. It's an older hotel, a bit dated, not flashy at all, but it sits on the creek and the views (particularly the shrimp boats & sunset view) are spectacular. They offer a continental breakfast and are within walking distance to several decent restaurants.

I've also stayed at the marina at the Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina. They have shuttles to downtown & the beach, so they very well may have a shuttle to the race start.
