The Cannonboro is a beautiful old building in superb condition which offers every comfort. We stayed in room 4 which had plenty of room and all the facilities one could want, and all in a traditional setting. It is very quiet and had a balcony to sit out on. Car parking is a bonus and everything is in a walkable... More

Service was great!!!!. You can get bikes of the Ashley Inn property for free and ride around the city. They are best means of transportation to explore the city. We are vegetarian and the staff was accommodating to us for breakfast. We will definitely go back and stay there again.

We stayed at the Cannonboro for two nights and it was just lovely. The staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed the afternoon wine with snacks. We would definitely stay here again..loved it.

My husband Bruce and I just had a wonderful stay at the Cannonboro Inn, we felt so welcomed. The room was great.Breakfast was very good both days. Lynn was very friendly and helpful . Barry the owner was very informative about the historical facts of his two inns. We would recommend this lovely inn to anyone.

We had a great time at this B&B. It was well decorated and maintained. It was also very clean and quaint. Just what you are looking for if you want to be in a historic building in Charleston. Further down are the positives and negatives in point form if you want the 3-second review but here are some details. Check-in... More

We had a great time here and would not mind returning. The staff was very nice! Micah was a character and we enjoyed him showing us around and helping us get checked in. I wish I could remember our housekeeper's name because she was lovely! We were comfortable in our rooms and slept well. Breakfast is included obviously and it... More

This is about 25 minute walk from downtown, which wasn't a problem for us. We would Uber it at night or when it was too cold. We stayed in room 4 which was larger and had doors opening to the upstairs piazza and then room 1 which was pretty and at the front of the house (bathroom super small). Other... More

Sorry I waited this long to review the Cannonboro Inn but the more recent reviews attest to the fact that this is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are charming and clean. My sister & I stayed in the large "Attic" room which was comfortable. Loved having a kitchenette. More & more B&Bs do not serve a full breakfast.... More

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.
