We stayed two nights during our recent visit to Charleston. Our first impression based on the parking lot and hallways was of an old outdated motel. However on entering our room, we realized that the hotel was really first rate we had a beautiful room with a lovely king size bed. The location is terrific - we highly recommend.

My teenage daughter and I stayed here this past week. The welcome was warm, and the historic charm of this hotel is undeniable. It was lot like staying with my very genteel Southern grandmother in her lovely old home...the warmth, the tasteful, traditional furnishings, the high ceilings, the attention to a guest's comfort. Unlike my grandmother's, there was Wi-Fi, a... More

This inn has a great location on King Street and is within easy walking distance of almost everything you would want to see in Charleston. The staff is welcoming. We were attracted to this property because finding an old, historic inn with two beds can be a challenge. The only criticism I have is that the bedding is slightly old... More

Loved this hotel. It is an historic building right in the heart of the city. You can walk to restaurants and shops. Great breakfast and evening wine and cheese were wonderful. Elevator was slow, but it was an old building. Open courtyard was the perfect location for breakfast. Would stay here again. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was clean and... More

The hotel is both quaint and comfortable. The service is superb. Location is perfect, it's close to everything. Parking is reasonable and very convenient, a big plus for Charleston. This was a mini vacation celebrating our anniversary, and it was perfect.

This was a good and reasonable place for our 3 generation girls trip in Oct. Walking distance to so many places. Good breakfast buffet which we ate at the tables by the pool to enjoy in a lovely setting. Helpful staff. Would definitely stay here again.
