City Centre Inn
Ranked #30 of 39 Charleston B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 December 2015

We spent one night in the Coastal Suite. The Inn is in a quiet and safe, but central location. We booked through HomeAway and this place is sort of a hybrid between a hotel and a home rental. We never actually met the owner or any of the staff. The owner was very responsive via the HomeAway site, however.

The Coastal Suite is perpendicular to George Street, with the living area next to the street and the bedroom farthest from the street. We heard no road noise at night. It is on the ground floor and a little dark, notwithstanding the many windows. The outside sitting area is well furnished but faces the driveway and a fence and is also somewhat dark and gloomy.

The suite is elegant and furnished beautifully, with an overt seaside theme (including a shell shrine...). The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is new and modern-- great shower.

The A/C and heating unit is near the corner of the outdoor seating area and is quite loud.

The free WiFi download speed was 6.9 Mbps, which is much faster than most hotels.

Good tv with free Netflix

I recommend this place, and this suite in particular.

We stayed in the Coastal Suite it was very spacious and comfortable. The suite was decorated beautifully and the shower is wonderful. The City Centre is a great location for anyone visiting that just wants to park the car and walk. I would highly recommend this property.

Room Tip: The Coastal Suite has a king sized bed and excellent shower.

The City Centre is in a perfect location for a Charleston visit...easy walking distance to everything. The suites are impeccably clean and decorated in charming, quirky ways. Great owners - we noted that the bed in the Mod Suite was located very close to the outdoor heating unit, making it noisy for sleeping, and they let us know they'd be moving the bed to improve the situation for future guests. It's great when people take that much interest in improving their product!

We moved the head of the bed to the opposite wall after we became aware of this noise. No complaints since! Thanks for letting us know.

Charleston is a bigger city that i had in mind. It is lively and you definitely need to be in a great location. This inn has a great location. Our room was cute with a living room space and a small bedroom. The bathroom was beautiful and if you stay longer you have a great kitchen. Parking is included in the price of the room. It is really walking distance to everywhere and everything.

This spectacular inn is located right in the heart of Ansonborough which is within walking distance to many of the sights in downtown Charleston. What a relief to not have to fight traffic and pay for expensive parking (free off-street parking behind the inn). We stayed in the Mary Scott suite which is located in the main house and gave us a flavor of true Charleston décor. We toured the other suites which are somewhat larger and just as inviting. Beds very comfortable, accommodations are extremely clean, pleasant owners who are most helpful. You don't want to miss out on this hidden gem.
