You will want to stay in the Historic District. When looking for hotels, be aware that "downtown" and "historic district" are NOT the same thing. Downtown is not walking distance to much of anything. Historic district will be walking distance to great restaurants and bars, museums, the Battery, the Market, Waterfront Park, etc. You will need a car for going to beaches and/or plantations.

Typically the most budget friendly hotels in the HD are Best Western King Charles Inn, Hampton Inn HD, and Days Inn HD. However, many of the others run specials, etc so keep an eye out for them. Have you ever used Kayak.com It will allow you to check many places at once.

If you are arriving by car, be sure to factor in the cost and availability of parking. Very few offer free parking; Days Inn is one that does.
