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...

We were only able to stay in Charleston a bare 24 hours, but are now anxious to return. Palmer's Pinckney Inn very comfortable, lovely decor, Dawn the manager very friendly and helpful. She got us onto a very good walking tour. Can't wait to return!

Very comfortable clean room, with gas fireplace, large tub, & great pillows, bed, linens. Small yet thoughtfully stocked kitchen (snacks, fruit, continental+quiche breakfast, evening wine) available 24 hrs. Porches narrow without view but enjoyed sitting out there to relax. Great location near the market. A big breakfast (we didn't try it) available for $5 & PM complimentary wine & cheese... More

My husband surprised me with a stay at this beautiful inn for our 1st anniversary. We take our dog Calvin everywhere we go, and this trip was no exception. We all felt so at home in the cozy Bombay Room, and the service was incredible. We were even able to enjoy a nice lunch because they offered to watch our... More

My husband and I stayed at the Palmer Home when we were married 2 years ago and wanted to return recently. The Palmer Home was booked up but we found that there was a room available at their sister property, Palmer's Pinckney Inn. The location was fantastic and we were so happy with our stay at the Palmer Home that... More

My wife and I recently took a 5 night trip to beautiful Charleston on a recommendation of a friend. We stayed at the Palmer's Pinckney Inn right in the middle of downtown Charleston. I never checked out the reviews on TripAdvisor and if I had would probably would not have stayed there. Am I glad I didn't check. When I... More

David and Diane, We are so glad that you found our little house. We really enjoyed meeting you both and hated to see you leave. This review is sooo awesome! You were the first people to stay in the Parisian Room after the renovation so I'm glad it measured up. We are continuing to clean and update the property and... More
