Looking to book a room in Charleston, South Carolina for the August 21st total solar eclipse? Turn around bright eyes.
The city’s hotel inventory is nearly gone—and Airbnb’s not much better.
“We’ve been sold out for the event for two months now,” Chris Harvey, general manager for the Harbor View Inn in Charleston told WCIV-TV. “So, we essentially sold out three and a half months before that date.”
A spot check of Airbnb shows that only 4% of the service’s listings in the city are currently available between the dates of Aug. 18 and 22. In Columbia, the state capital, only 13% of Airbnb listings are still available.
