  1. I've gotten so much valuable information from Cruise Critic, I thought I would share what I found after making more than a dozen calls to find a pre-cruise hotel that would allow us to leave our car in their lot for the duration of our cruise, that possibly has a shuttle to the port and breakfast, preferably all free. Of all the places I called, the only ones that gave free parking and shuttle to the port, but NO free breakfast: Holiday Inn Riverview Radisson Charleston Airport Free Parking, Free Breakfast, NO shuttle: Wingate Inn Charleston Airport Sleep Inn Savannah Hwy Best Western Sweetgrass Sleep Inn Mt Pleasant Quality Inn Patriots Point SpringHill Suites Downtown / Riverview Marriott Residence Inn Downtown / Riverview Hampton Inn Patriots Point / Mt Pleasant Sleep Inn North Charleston Ramada Charleston (formerly Clarion) Free Parking, NO Free Breakfast or Shuttle: Days Inn Patriots Point / Mt Pleasant Every place I called does allow free parking while on the cruise, so if you find a good rate, just call. Chances are they'll let you. Also, I have heard that the Embassy Suites North Charleston Airport does let you park for free and has a shuttle and free breakfast, but I'm pretty sure they require a 2 nt minimum because when I called and tried to check rates online for 1 night, it was unavailable, but when I tried 2 nights, they then had availability. Anyway, since I was told it was booked, I didn't ask about the parking or shuttle. I ultimately decided to book one of the hotels that doesn't have a shuttle because the savings of the free breakfast and the lower rates are allowing us to stay for 2 nts to explore Charleston instead of just one, and then we'll take a taxi to the port for around $10 and won't have to wait on a shuttle or worry about how many other people will be riding it.
