We stayed at this property for 4 nights, location is far from perfect, dont get fooled by the fact the hotel is downtown, it'll take you about 25-30 min walk to get to the actual Life of downtown Charlston and half of the way will look like you're walking through a ghetto. Yes, there is a free trolley with complicated route that runs twice and hour but its never on time. The hotel is decent, with recent touch-ups but still dated, there is a dinasaur of an ac unit in the wall that sounds like a jet engine turbine. It is literally impossible to sleep with ac on. The room they gave us was half the size of a typical HI room, not sure if all rooms are like that. Bathroom is also about 1/2 scale. The hotel is right next to the intersection of Highway 17, several main streets and bridges and it is Extremely noisy 24/7. If you can stay for under $ 200 elsewhere within walking distance to downtown I would choose another hotel.
