Bottom Line

The 74-room Sleep Inn Charleston is a mid-range chain hotel located about a 20-minute drive outside of the historic downtown area. Rooms are clean and spacious with contemporary decor and modern conveniences like mini-fridges, microwaves, and free Wi-Fi. Amenities are sparse, but the hotel does provide a free continental breakfast served in a sunlit dining room, and there's also a pretty outdoor patio as well as a business center available for guests' use. Travelers seeking something with more amenities and closer to Charleston's historic downtown may want to consider the Holiday Inn Express Charleston Downtown - Ashley River, a value hotel within a 20-minute walk of King Street with a small outdoor pool.

Oyster Hotel Review

Sleep Inn Charleston

Scene

Chain hotel with modern lobby and pretty outdoor patio

Guests at the Sleep Inn Charleston are greeted in a bright and modern lobby, which features tall sloped ceilings and a large wooden front desk illuminated by a white rectangular light suspended over it. A beige couch and armchairs flank the front door and the room's neutral hues are enlivened by a cheery green accent wall decorated with a white tree branch pattern. Potted plants give the space a homey feel and a dispenser of lemon-infused water is a nice, attentive touch. The adjoining breakfast room is a fairly standard space typical of chain hotels, though clean and bright, with glass doors that open out onto a pretty outdoor patio with wrought iron tables and chairs under a vine-covered pergola.
