We stayed for two nights -Oct 27/28 at the Best Western /Sawgrass. We arrived in the early afternoon and was allowed to check in early - which was very nice. We drove into Charleston to take a city tour with Gray Line and got a very nice sense of the city during the 90 minute tour. I would highly recommend it as a good initiation to the city. While buying tickets we were asked to attend a 90 minute -Vacation Club presentation - (Time Share) which we always avoid, but was told by the clerk it would be a low key forum. To make a long story short we attended the presentation for Festival vacation club and it was very low pressured and walked out with two tickets to the Magnolia Plantation and a $50 visa card - We went to the plantation - but would not advise it during October - little to see and a little pricey, although we had two free tickets. We used the $50 visa card to have dinner in a very nice Italian restaurant on Church St. Getting back to the Best Western, the rooms were a little dated, but they were clean. The only complaint was it's location - it s right on Rt. 17 - 4 miles outside the city - a fairly easy drive, but getting out of the lot during the busy time of the day was difficult. I would recommend staying in the city, as it is small enough to get around by car, as well as cheap to park in the many lots they have. You can find a few other Best Western's in the city itself, perhaps for a few dollars per night more. Places to see in Charleston would be the church st. market area, which had many open-air shops as well as some high priced ones. Taking a tour of the Citadel was a highlight for me as being retired military, we lucked out and they had a "pass and review" parade on the Friday we were there. Seeing 2000 cadets marching with the band was great (for me) - not so if you ask my wife. All in all a very nice visit to Charleston and would go there again. The Best Western also allowed us a late check-out of 2:00pm due to us having a late flight which I thought was very nice.
