We were looking forward to true southern hospital, grand breakfast, warm welcome. All left us very "meh". Our room was fine, but a little too cozy with small sink in room and toilet shower in a closet-like space. Evening wine hour was often unattended, wine or food depleted and nothing special. Breakfast eggs with ham and potatoes, no toast or...

We stayed at the Inn for two nights and were very satisfied with our stay. We had room number 1, which is right next to the main entrance and has windows facing the street. Still the room was very quiet and we had no trouble sleeping at all. Our room and the common areas of the Inn were absolutely clean....

Period architecture is one of the major attractions of Charleston. Staying in this 1853 house converted to B&B is the perfect way to experience the city. The house is beautifully restored with a lovely side porch overlooking a garden. A delicious breakfast by the friendly staff gets your day off to a strong start. There is so much to do...

Stayed 3 nights with these wonderful people while my husband was at MUSC. They were very kind and caring and made me very comfortable. Will definitely go back for a weekend escape. Great breakfast on the porch and happy hour in the afternoon! Lots of great restaurants nearby.

This place has a lot of charm. The staff, especially the woman who cooks breakfast is very personable. Our room had a high (and I do mean high), four poster bed that I had to get a running start to get into. A dresser, desk, clothes closet, rocking chair and side chair are in the room. It is decorated in...

This B&B was perfect for a weekend getaway with a friend. It was walkable to downtown and we felt safe coming back late at night. The staff was so friendly and accommodating, especially when it came to dietary restrictions for breakfast. The food was delicious! They also have snacks out between 4-5:00PM which are perfect after a long day out...

A quaint B&B with an outstanding staff makes this place a winner. From the manager Lynn's down home greeting with glass of chilled white wine to Barry's breakfast historical Charleston tour de force, this place can't be beat. BTW, the breakfast and the mid afternoon wine and cheese aren't to shabby either. Enjoy!!!!

The Inn itself was very nice but trying to park in allotted area was a real adventure. We have a mid-size SUV and it was extremely tight parking. Hosts were very accomadating and breakfast, both days, was delicious. Location is within walking distance to several good restaurants of Which Lana was the best.

We are so happy to hear you love our Innkeepers as much as we do. Although parking can be tight, most downtown B&B's do not have the luxury of private off-street parking so we are always thankful we do. We hope you'll be able to come visit again soon!

Great location (quaint and safe). We were very grateful for the on-site parking--it's a little tight but totally manageable and it's nothing that they'd be able to fix, they do the best with the space they have. Loved how we could stay just one night instead of a two-night minimum (since we were only in town for one night)--not all...
