We enjoyed this historic bed and breakfast- found the breakfast to be delightful and quite filling. The house is old, historic which means in spite of restoration, things are typical of older homes-creaky floors, oddly placed outlets and in our room small bathroom. However, that being said, we still found it charming. Location is a quick walk to King, Market... More

Vintage Charleston and charming. Very helpful staff. Because I am on a special diet, they happily offered (I did not have to ask) to prepare me oatmeal for breakfast. Lovely adjacent blocks to walk. Historic downtown is a longer but doable walk, and Uber is in Charleston.

One reason we picked this b&b is because of parking and location. We were pleasantly surprised by the house and it's comfort. Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful in recommendations on restaurants and sites to see. Our breakfast was outstanding. Especially the stuffed french toast. With Ohio Maple syrup! Only small complaint was our bed did... More

Good Day Mike K, Thank you for the excellent review of our location, rooms, staff, and breakfasts. I am glad your favorite was the Raspberry-stuffed French Toast; it is one of our most popular breakfasts! Our sincere apologies about the missing canopy. We are having the wood frame repaired, so that it will continue to display as lovely as advertised.... More

The Inn is owned by a veteran hotelier and run by two very accommodating managers. The location is great for quick walks to the attractions and restaurants. The guest rooms are well appointed and clean. Breakfast was outstanding. A great choice when visiting Charleston.

Nice property in a great residential area in Charleston. Several blocks from King St. shopping and a relatively easy walk to many restaurants and the College of Charleston. Priced reasonably. Staff was very polite, cooperative and easy to engage in conversation. Rooms were clean and neat and had everything you'd need within reason. There was no street noise, so sleep... More

We booked the Carriage House room (CH03) from the 1837 B&B and loved it!! It's a beautiful space in a really neat part of Charleston. It's very easy to access any main attraction with just a 10 minute walk or so. The rooms are inviting, charming, and comfortable. We were so happy that we picked this B&B for our stay.... More

Economical choice still within walking distance of so many places. I walked all over the University of Charleston which is about a block away. I also walked to the waterfront for sunrise. That was a bit further, but still easy. The room was clean and comfortable. I was on the third floor. The breakfast was very tasty and the managers... More

1837 Bed and Breakfast is an excellent b&b to stay when visiting Charleston. This house is preserved very well so you feel like you go back 200 years ago in history. The location is very convenient to Charleston historic district. The neighbor is quiet and nice. You can also see the breakfast menu from the inn's website. Each day you... More
