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.... More

This is a quaint little inn located in an ok location. There is no typical B and B breakfast here...coffee, bagels, yogurt. Evidently they have a sister inn where you can go have breakfast. I prefer to have my breakfast where I stay. Parking is really located across the street and the charge is $12.00. There is a very tiny... More

My best friend and I stayed in the Bombay Room (two nights, three days), which was a perfect little space for us take a break from the heat and relax. Our room was clean and spacious, our hostess was helpful and welcoming, and the breakfast options were great before heading out for a sweltering trek around the city. Fabulous price... More

Palmer's Pinckney Inn was a tight squeeze, but a great location for walking. The room was beautifully done, the hostess was great. You got a real feel for a "Charleston" style house on a small scale. The kitchen while small was very welcoming. Clean, comfortable and cozy.

My husband and I stayed in the Charleston room whilst holidaying here. Lovely large quaint and comfortable room. Easy walking distance to all of the sights, restaurants etc. Staff are very friendly and let you feel at home and even provide you with a glass of wine to have on the verandah in the evening! We would definitely stay here... More

My wife and I stayed in the Charleston room and were very pleased by the quality of the furnishings, the comfort of the bed and quiet location within the Inn though the Inn itself was quiet. The Inn is within a comfortable and easy walking distance to the heart of the shopping district. We enjoyed the southern breakfast at the... More

I can't believe some of the negative reviews this place has received. I'm glad I didn't read them before we booked our stay. We found the Inn to be charming and quaint. We felt lucky to get a room there just a few days before we went to Charleston. Dawn was quite accommodating in making our reservations and helpfully answered... More

First the good news- the staff of this small B&B was most accommodating and helpful. The location is great. Now the not so good news- this building is very old. Obviously needed maintenance has been deferred. There is a sometimes subtle difference between cozy and shabby; this inn falls in the latter category: old furniture, old linens, poor kitchen and...
