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

We stayed at Palmer home B&B over the weekend and it was a lovely getaway. The view from the balcony was beautiful the staff was friendly and very helpful. 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

If you are looking for true Southern Hospitality and old Charleston style, this is the place to go. My hubby planned this stay just for a get away. The home is real "old south" Charleston. 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

We encountered the following when arriving at the Palmer Home bnb : 3 roaches, dust caked fan in our room, unwashed towels in the bathroom, wrinkled, old bed cover, seats on the porch with threadbare, holey cushions, scummu shower, dripping faucet, old cheese in the rooms mini fridge, and a weird smell. On the plus side, the owner was nice... More

Charleston is organized for the efficient separation of tourists from their money and The Palmer Home elevates this concept to an art form. They carefully collect payment in advance so you won't leave when you first see the place. The location is terrific and the home may have been palatial at one time, but it is seriously run down and... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Palmer House. Lovely location and has a wonderful porch to view the harbor. Nice wine and cheese (more cheese and crackers needed) in the afternoon and a great breakfast. Kitchen staff did a nice job on breakfast. This has been a grand hotel but it seems to be in need of TLC. This did... More

I can't tell you how much I love this place. Calm, calm, calm. Relaxed. Even the checkout time is relaxed. I thoroughly enjoy the southern breakfast served. Francess Palmer is sweeter than the sweet tea they serve here in the south. Her restaurant suggestions are always spot on. But then sometimes I simply settle for Domino's delivery, then share a...
