This was quite different from our previous stay at a B&B in that we didn't even see the owner until the day we were leaving. While I'm not sure I like his hands-off management and seeming lack of dedication, I did like the people he hired to run things for him--they were all helpful and kind. Our room (#2) had... More

We stayed at the Cannonboro Inn this past week, and found the accommodations, service and owner to be delightful! Barry was a wealth of information and history - I could have talked with him all day! I definitely recommend this B&B when you go to Charleston.

Gorgeous inside and out! We stayed in Room 1 for a night. I feel in love with The Cannonboro Inn from the first moment I saw it. Everything from the front gate down to the decor screamed old southern charm. Our room was very nice huge room. The bathroom was tiny, but it was fine for our use. Our room... More

Charleston is an absolutely beautiful place and we had such an amazing getaway. The people at the inn were so accommodating and nice. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to get back to Charleston.

The Cannonboro Inn offers comfortable rooms, exceptional breakfasts and a gracious staff. The inn is near four very good restaurants - all north of Calhoun Street. Be sure to visit Lana and Trattoria Luca. Barry the owner is a topnotch local historian. Listen carefully and take copious notes! We can't wait to return.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Cannonboro Inn and had such a pleasant stay. The building is located right across from the MUSC campus and is a well-maintained historic property. We stayed in room 2 on the second floor, which was spacious, with lots of natural light and a comfortable four poster bed. The bathroom was on the small... More

Really enjoyed our stay at the Cannonboro Inn. Two nights and two wonderful breakfasts. Innkeeper Barry is very knowledgable about the history of the Inn and the city. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Room #2 is large and comfy. Private bath is a bit small. Would definitely return here.

We stayed for two weekend nights. The room #4 was very large and comfortable. We had a door from our room to a large portico. This B&B has an innkeeper on duty but is not owner occupied and I think that provided more privacy somehow. The owner appeared at breakfast one day and was a good story teller with his... More

My wife and I spend our first anniversary in Charleston and stayed at the Cannonboro Inn. We stayed in Room 4 and had a great experience. The room was very spacious and had direct access to the 2nd floor balcony overlooking a small garden and fountain. Though we didn't partake due to an early dinner reservation, the wine and snacks...

We stayed in Room 7; a little tight for 2 people, but would be perfect for 1; clean, quiet, and comfortable. The water pressure in the private bathroom was a bit low, but there was plenty of hot water. Breakfast was always great for me, but if you're a bacon, eggs, and pancake type it may be too artisan for... More
