The building itself is so gracious in appearance. The public porch is a super place to sit and relax with a glass of wine and meet new friends. The main floor is beautiful with the dark wood curved staircase leading to the second floor rooms. Our room, the Middleton Suite, was very large with easy entry onto the huge second... More

We just spent three beautiful days in Charleston and loved our stay in the historic home. We had the Independence room on the second floor, which was on the main street (Broad) but traffic noise was minimal at night. The location was just perfect for us. We were able to park on their site and walked almost everywhere which was... More

The GOvernor's House Inn is a picture perfect place to stay in Charleston. We spent three nights and enjoyed our stay immensely. Our room was smallish but perfectly furnished for the period. The side porch was a great place to read and relax. The public areas inside were pleasant, and the breakfasts were extremely good. The location is good--there is... More

Stayed four nights in the most expensive room. Only saw innkeeper the last morning. The rest of the time the inn was manned by some very nice but inexperienced young people. Consider that the inn's printer needed ink because it was was printing very faintly. This resulted in very hard to read directions to restaurants, the airport and one's itinerary... More

Spent one night here while in Charleston and loved everything about it. The actual house is clean and beautiful. Our room was exactly what you're looking for in a Southern B&B, charming, transitional and grand. Breakfast was delicious and staff was very friendly and hospitable. Location cannot be beat...you're 3 blocks from the center of the historic district.

We stayed here for just one night, but it was wonderful. The location on Board leaves you right in the center of Historic Charleston. We did a few of the tours during the Homes & Garden festival; all within minutes of this B&B. Breakfast was delicious, and served within minutes of us seating ourselves. Friendly conversation with the other guests.... More

We were here to celebrate my husband's birthday and had a wonderful time. The staff was wonderful!!! We were greeted in the driveway (as soon as we stepped out of the car). They were always available to answer questions, make reservations. Very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, quiche and fresh fruit. Afternoon Tea was a nice treat, light snacks... More

My husband and I stayed at the Governors Inn for 2 nights in March 2014 to celebrate my bday. Here are our experiences: 1. We had room 11 which is located under the main floor of the house so if you like to sleep in, I would not recommend this room. Early AM and late night, you can hear people... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful , historic B&B in t he historic district. We found the staff to be awesome. The owners greeted us on arrival and were always there, providing anything we needed. We also enjoyed interacting with the other guests at breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese. Everything was in walking distance . Would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful B&B located right on broad street. We found it to be a great base for exploring the city. The cooked breakfasts were plentiful and the afternoon tea was a lovely touch with cake and drinks. While the staff we interacted with were all helpful, the B&B was missing the personal touch of having the owners onsite. I have stayed... More
