Really convenient location. Nice owners and staff. Parking is a problem so don't stay here if you have a large car. Rooms are spacious and well-maintained. Plants on all the porches needed TLC. However, given the August heat maybe this criticism is a bit harsh. Overall, nice place and well-priced. The breakfast provided was very good as well as the... More

Good Day Elaine B, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I apologize for the look of the plants; the humidity does affect care at times. We will be replacing some of our plants to liven up our porches' atmosphere within the next few weeks in fact. In regards to our parking, we recommend small cars and... More

We had a nice time at 1837! The staff was friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean and decor was nice. The only drawback is the parking. It is very small and hard to get in and out of. Other than that I would recommend this place.

What a lovely place to stay in. A walkable distance to many Charleston attractions. Service friendly, and unobtrusively professional. Breakfast a pleasure, and they can do "proper" tea. Excellent value for money, especially in a tourist town

These words describe our latest visit to Charleston. We normally stay in hotels, however, we wanted something special for our 32nd anniversary. 1837 B & B is definitely a special place. The room was charming, quiet and the bed comfortable. We were able to walk to the main areas of downtown. The breakfasts were wonderful, not your standard restaurant fare... More

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here. First time was a great experience. Second time was even better. Quiet at night and very convenient to all of the best Charleston has to offer. We will definitely be back again and again. Great parking as well!

We had a wonderful stay at the 1837 B & B. Morning breakfasts were fantastic, they even had an old style english tea/coffee time from 4 to 6 where you can sit with others and talk about Charleston and get great tip from owner & staff, Matt & Samatha.

Conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood but only a few blocks from the town center. Run by very friendly staff. Interior is very charming and nostalgic. Bathroom is clean and functional but not state of the art. Offers tea and very yummy cake every afternoon. ;)
