It had been a very long time since I had been in Charleston, and the carriage house had wonderful and cozy accommodations for myself and my two travel companions. The owners and innkeepers were gracious and very personable. The breakfasts and afternoon tea made for excellent ways to start the day as well as to unwind for a bit before... More

This B and B was very convenient to all there is to see in Charleston within walking distance. Samantha and Lee were very helpful and breakfast was very good. The room was clean and cozy. We would stay here again.

This one's tough because the people were very nice. You also have to factor in the house is VERY old. Maybe too old. Just appears run down. Perhaps for some, that is the appeal - hence the title 'just not what we expected'. The good news is the room we stayed in was much more spacious than your typical room.... More

This is a small boutique B&B in a beautiful historic Charleston property. Walking distance to the central area-historic properties, market, shopping and restaurants. The staff are unbelievably helpful and completely accommodating. They are there to make sure your stay is a good experience and they do a great job with this. Afternoon tea is a treat if you are there... More

We selected the 1837 Bed & Breakfast based on the reviews and the central location within Charleston. Arriving slightly earlier than check-in, we were warmly greeted by the owner. While our room was not yet ready, he graciously allowed us to leave the car in parking lot as we ventured out to enjoy the city. Returning to the B&B later... More

A quiet yet convenient position some ten minutes walk from downtown. Rooms have their individuality and if one wants more reliable peace one may wish to avoid a room with others above. Breakfasts are pleasant and our request to avoid the generally popular sweet content was readily acceded. It is difficult to comment on 'value' as all such accommodation is... More

My husband and I stayed at the 1837 in early April and were very pleased with our choice. The location of the B&B is in the center of everything, just a few blocks away from King St and in the center of the College of Charleston campus. Although you are within the campus community we hardly noticed it. Overall an... More

This is a beautiful old inn in the heart of Charleston. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast was tasty. It is also close to some good restaurants which was convenient for us on our first night as we arrived late in the day. We would definitely return.

We spent a number of nights here. The staff are lovely and very helpful. We had the carriage suite which is up a spiral staircase. The staircase is VERY tight but we made it although it was awkward with suitcases. Very nice suite with the exception of the bathroom. It was extremely tiny and you couldn't even sit on the... More

My husband and I traveled to Charleston for our anniversary. We stayed two nights at the 1837 B&B. Our room was on the 3rd floor. I can't say enough great things about the breakfast! We received a full breakfast each morning, which is one thing we look for when staying at a B&B. The BLT Frittata was scrumptious and the... More
