Highly recommend staying here. Food was great way to start each morning. The location is just outside of the center of the city, a nice walk, or very short car ride away from downtown. Had a great 2 night stay with my girlfriend. My only complaint is that I wish I stayed longer!

My fiancee and I stayed at the Cannonboro Inn in Charleston on June 14th and June 15th 2015. I highly recommend this B&B. Our room - room#4 - was extremely spacious and immaculate.The breakfasts were amazing. We had a car and the Cannonboro had parking. Barry, the owner, was 100% available and spent a lot of time answering our many... More

The Cannonboro Inn is in an historic building on the outer edge of Charleston's historic district. Somewhat long walk (but certainly doable) to the historic sites such as City Market. Chief Innkeeper Lynn keeps everything lively and the breakfasts are marvelous. The weather was beautiful for having breakfast served on the outside patio. We actually stayed at their remote guest...

We had a very enjoyable stay at this beautiful B & B. The manager, Lynn, could not have been more friendly and hospitable. Her breakfasts were outstanding with gourmet dishes. Wine and snacks in the afternoon were a welcome plus. The house is well located within walking distance of the main shopping and dining areas. Our room was small but... More

We completely agree with what appears to be a consensus among reviewers - this is a comfortable appealing and hospitable B&B, with great breakfasts. True, it is about a 25 minute walk to downtown, but staying here you are not paying downtown prices. We enjoyed the regular walk there and back through quiet residential streets. We stayed 2 nights in... More

Although this B&B has some charm and the welcoming is nice, the bedroom lacks the comfort expected when once pay $ 250/ night. The bathroom is totally obsolete and deteriorated, the sink is inside bedroom. The bed is absolutely terrible and uncomfortable for someone with back problems. It is a total disappointment but for the lady who greeted us. This... More

We stayed at the Cannonboro with friends with whom we travel to a different US city each year (this was year 15). Our flight was delayed & Alana kindly waited for us, and was delightful, as were the other staff. Our room was well appointed (although the bathroom could use an upgrade). Love the wrap-around verandah for dining and visiting.... More

My fiancé and I had the pleasure of staying at the Cannoboro Inn for two nights in September 2014. The inn was extremely charming. Equally charming was Lynn--we really appreciated Lynn’s local recommendations and her wonderful hospitality. We utilized the bikes that are available to Cannonboro and Ashley Inn guests--we likely would have rented bikes, so this added to the... More
