This was a great place to stay in Charleston. The location is perfect for walking to everything. The room was very clean and very quiet and the bed was fantastic, even being on the first floor next to the street we did not hear much noise. The breakfast is not much to speak about but for $5.00 you can eat... More

Not handicap friendly. Building is really run down, has lots of smells owners looks like they are not putting any money in, only taking out. Definitely would not return. Location was the only good thing

The house is old and full of character and very comfortable.It was lovlely also to go to the Palmer House and learn the history while having a... More

We decided to purchase a groupon/living social for this property and so glad we did. The people there were fantastic and really made you feel like you were home. A couple of complaints was the shower did not have a very hard stream of water and the building is behind the stables for the carriage rides. The smell during the... More

I normally don't leave reviews, but felt I needed to let others know about this great little Inn. We stayed there over the Summer. New to Charleston, the location was ideally in the historic district, near the shops and restaurants. Our favorite was the Crüe across the street. The Inn was charming, clean and adorable! The service was excellent, particularly... More

My friend and I had a Living Social deal for Palmer's Pinckney Inn. Although small, the room was well-appointed with a hair dryer, coffee maker, iron, continental breakfast. But what I loved most after walking and shopping all day -- all within a few block walk -- was the unbelievably comfortable mattress and the soft sheets and pillows! Others have... More

I booked Palmer's Pinckney Inn after finding a Living Social deal. We were able to stay in downtown Charleston for a reasonable price for our anniversary. We stayed in the Bombay Room, which was upstairs and very cute and comfortable. The B&B is within walking distance to everything, but you will get a workout! It's between two of the carriage...

We had a deal with Living Social, so it was about $100/night with tax, etc. Great location--very central to everything downtown--aside from horse lodging next door (bad odors as I read about on others' reviews). Neat little place, truly Charleston. TIGHT driveway (no exaggeration by others, I now know!)...if it hadn't been for my back-up camera! But, nonetheless, to have... More

Very bad experience. My husband and I came to experience Southern hospitality and this place will not give it to you. Everything is rundown making it very unpleasant. The amount they charge to stay in this place is ridiculously expensive. The condition of this place is more like an hourly motel. Do not stay here. They give a terrible name... More

We have stayed at the Palmer Pinkney Inn eight times now and have thoroughly enjoyed each occasion. The Inn's central location renders all of downtown a stroll away. After so many visits we've had the opportunity to sample all of the rooms and have always found them to be clean, cozy and comfortable. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and professional....
