6.2 Okay
Pros:The bed was comfortable
Cons:The room I stayed in was outdated and dark
E
2.8 Bad
Pros:Location only
Cons:Room was smoky. Air conditioner would not cool the room lower than 70F even after it was inspected. Daily room cleaning was highly variable but consistently poor. Feels extremely dated. Terrible value.
H
8.2 Great
Pros:The location was perfect. Could not be better to walk around town. Meeting street is there and the market is right there plus you are one block from King street. Parking is easy as well and the hotel area is safe. The pool is small but right on meeting street and has covered seatinbso you can watch the pool but be out of the sun if you want to. That was neat.
Cons:THe halls were under construction. They appear to have needed the renovation. Room was nice but it is small. We were not in it much so it was fine. If you are in the room a lot, this is a challenge.
K
5.1 Passable
Pros:The location was very good. I liked that they gave you 2 water bottles each day. The shower was great and the bathroom was VERY large.
Cons:The bed was very uncomfortable and the pillows were a joke. They were tiny and lumpy. The room could have been better maintained. One of the drawer pulls came loose. One day we didn't have enough towels. They usually provide 3 or 4, but we only had 2. I use 2 towels when I shower (one for hair and one for body). I didn't realize there were not enough towels. My husband got out of the shower and didn't have a towel! I had to give him one of my wet towels. When I told the girl at the front desk, she didn't even apologize. She just made a note to provide us with extra towels. We didn't want EXTRA towels. We just wanted the normal number. The AC was VERY loud! I had to turn up the TV every time it turned on.

FAQs when booking at The Ryder Hotel

  • There are both good public transportation options as well as driving connections to the King Charles Inn from Charleston International Airport. If you come by car, the journey will take about 20 to 30m. Take the I-26 until exit 221B. From here, continue on one of the two right lanes to merge onto Meeting Street, where the hotel will appear on the right hand side. Public transport will take about 45m with the XP3 line to Downtown Charleston. Exit at Visitors Center/Charleston Museum and walk the remaining 10m on foot to the hotel.

  • To explore the surrounding area in your own time, guests can rent a bike from the on-site bike rental at the hotel. Bike rentals come at an additional charge of approximately $6 for the first hour and about $3 for each subsequent hour.
