My husband and I stayed for 2 nights after staying in the Francis Marion Hotel for 2 nights. The Cannonboro Inn was such a better experience! Alena and Lynn were so helpful and the breakfasts were fabulous! We were so pleased that they served the wine and snacks in the afternoon. Everyone staying there came down to enjoy it. I... More

A wonderful old Charleston home. Staff was friendly and informative on things in Charleston and surroundings. The wine and snacks in the late afternoon was a really nice touch. Room was great. Location on the edge of historic area made it easy to get around to see the sights of Charleston

Our 4 day stay at the Cannonboro Inn B&B was very disappointing (Oct 21-14, 2014 in room #2). I would discourage anyone from booking into this B&B. Poor customer service, no concern about guest’s comfort due to street noise and street lights, poor WiFi signal, mediocre breakfast and the same afternoon hors d’oeuvres every day, etc. First, our room was...

I have spoken with my staff that was on duty during your stay and we were all quite surprised at your comments as being in the front of the house near traffic was the only one voiced to us. We take all guest issues very seriously and I would like to take each of your comments in turn. Three years... More

We stayed at the Cannonboro Inn for 2 evenings and wish it could have been more. My 15 year old son was with Mom and Dad this trip and he was so happy that we got to stay in such a wonderful inn. We appreciated the great tips from the staff, Lynn and Alanna, for dining out options nearby. Barry... More

It really means a lot when we can make a teenager happy! When a family can connect and make our house their home means the world to us. We feel that having the bicycles for guests is just a little added amenity that makes a difference. Thank you for your kind review and hope to have you return. Safe Travels!... More

I was in Charleston last year and stayed at the Cannonboro Guest House and loved it. This time I stayed 3 nights in Room 7 at the Inn itself (at the top of the stairs) and loved it! Lynn is wonderful and gracious, and the breakfasts are indeed amazing!!! The free off-street parking is a bit tight, but it's FREE!... More

It was nice you made our house your home. We are lucky to be located close enough to Folly beach for guests to be able to enjoy our historic city as well as the ocean breeze! We can't wait until you return and can cook you many more breakfasts! Many happy returns ! Lynn Mumau Chief Innkeeper More

This is a B&B and a wonderful place to stay - off-street parking - even if the lot is small. The best part is the service. Lynn will help you with everything, and she's there a lot. They DO serve breakfast, and it's out of this world - really. Nice big rooms, good air circulation. Bathrooms (at least ours was)... More

We spent three nights at the Cannonboro Inn and I wished we could have stayed longer. A very charming and gracious inn with very friendly and accommodating staff. Plus the breakfasts were the best.

The Cannonboro Inn has been our "Home Away From Home" when we have had to stay in Charleston while taking treatments at the Medical University of South Carolina located just across the street.
