Celebrated my birthday by staying at the Palmer Home. Lovely B and B. Ashley and Casey were extremely helpful making this a great experience. Loved the delicious breakfast, wine and cheese with the other guest. We stayed in the Suite. Very clean and comfortable especially the king sized bed. August 2014

The Palmer House, an antebellum home built in 1848, is an exceptional Bed and Breakfast filled with history. This elegant, yet friendly and down to earth, "Pink Palace" estate overlooks the Charleston Harbor on High Battery. We enjoyed the harbor breezes, watching the ships and sailboats pass by, and the breath-taking sunrises from the Charleston style piazzas. The staff (Ashley,... More

My family and I visited the Palmer home the last week of July. It is a very family friendly place with the convenience to everything you need within an arms reach. The staff was awesome and very outgoing, eager to please and make your day wonderful. Morning breakfast was the best as you are outside on the porch looking into... More

The strong points of this B&B are its convenient and scenic location on the Battery, its elegant living room overlooking the water, and a very good breakfast buffet. That's about it. Our rooms (we and our family had the carriage house at the rear) were rundown and poorly maintained by the cleaning staff, which never vacuumed or changed the sheets... More

This Bed and Breakfast is fabulous. It has been in the family for generations. It is beautiful and staff was fabulous! Ashley is the manager and was wonderful. She helped me with reservations and recommendations. Breakfast was big and good and got us all the way to dinner. We had wine and cheese on the piazza every day. It is... More

The staff and owner become family over night. Angela greeted us morning and night making sure needs were met and conditions were perfect. Kaci, the concierge, was adorable. She is the newest hire and a wonderful addition to Palmer House. We felt we had known the owner for years! She is personable and informative, all while being down to earth... More

For the second year, four of us stayed in the Carriage house accompanied by my dog. We were in Charleston on business and our accommodations met all our needs. The Carriage house is the perfect lodging for a group or family. The staff of the Palmer House was exceptionally accommodating. Any request was immediately met. The breakfast buffet was consistently... More

I felt like I had my very own personal assistant (Angela) she is a native from the area so the information she provided was so helpful, as all travelers know when... More

The accomidations were fantastic, breakfast was so good, and staff made us feel welcome. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a great bed and... More

The towels and bed sheets were questionable - I do not believe they were cleaned. The bathroom's lock was broken. The mattress and bed were extremely uncomfortable possibly broken. It was extremely noisy as there was a party in the next room. At the prices they charge, I am extremely shocked at the condition of the rooms and their offerings.... More
