Our experience at the Andrew Pinckney Inn was a disappointment. While the location is amenable to walking around Charleston, the inn did not provide the graciousness of the typical Charleston bed and breakfast. Our room was plain with no ambiance and we were told since we were the last check-in, there was nothing else available. We checked in at 6:30... More

This was a last minute trip for us and we didn't have a reservation, but Sandy was so accommodating and he checked us in at a great price. The room was small but quaint and a wonderful hot breakfast was included. Sandy was so very helpful and kind. It was pouring rain so he hooked us up with a tour,... More

Andrew Pinckney was a great choice for location. It is within walking distance to just about everything in historic downtown Charleston. The rooms were nicely appointed, but could use some slight maintainance. For instance, there were a few missing wood panels from the floor in our room, which made for uneven walking. Breakfast is served outside on the fourth floor... More

When we arrived at the Andrew Pinkney Inn, the check in was easy and thorough. We found we were upgraded to a townhouse suite, and the accommodations were spacious, clean and very comfortable.

This was our first trip to Charleston and we wanted to stay in the downtown historic area. The Andrew Pinckney Inn is very strategicly located to all the major sites. We did Market Street and the Fort Sumter tour, an easy walk to both. The weather was not great, rainy and cold, so the morning breakfast on the patio was... More

We are in the process of installing sound proofing windows on the first and second floors of the Church Street Building and making other improvements in the near future in attempts to reduce noise that may affect our guest's comfort or sleep. One of those other improvements is relocating the ice machine to a new vending area that will be... More

We had a challenging situation at another rental location and they moved us to the Andrew Pickney Inn. It couldn't have been better. Fabulous room, service, location within waling distance to everything (we never drove the car), quiet at night, superb complimentary breakfast. We can't say enough great things, especially after the rocky start we had downtown the day/night before.... More
