We were advised that the best location to stay in Charleston was on South Battery Street. We booked this B&B after some research on tripadvisor and other websites. Now i wished I'd stayed closer to the center where i would have gotten much better value for money. The room on the front ground floor was tiny and very dark. The... More

We stayed for 4 nights. The room was a bit small and you could hear every step the people upstairs took, so would recommend the second floor. Overall nice place. The breakfast was good not overly great. The staff is very nice, friendly and helpful.

We had a nice long weekend here. The room was pleasant and clean. The building and grounds overall need some attention to return to its once grand state. Here is what they did exceptionally well, the concierge was so nice and helpful both before and after we arrived. My husband had them order a flower arrangement and it was exceptional.... More

Our recent stay in January found the establishment lacking in amenities and maintenance. We have stayed at this B&B on 2 other occasions over the past 25 years. The place has gone through some renovations during that time from very small single rooms with marginal comforts to a more expansive establishment with several rooms of varying room/bed choices and an...

Beautiful inn. Grounds are lovely. Situated on South Battery and White Point Garden allows guests to watch the sun set over James Island and the Ashley River. The Battery Carriage Inn is in a beautiful residential neighborhood. Perfect for strolling. The room was spotless. The service was exactly what one would expect in a Charleston B and B.

I recently stayed at the Battery Carriage House Inn and I must say that it was one of the most relaxing weekends I have had in a while! When we checked in, the lady in the office was nothing but sweet and accommodating! We stayed in room #1 which was in the front of the house on the bottom level.... More

This bed and breakfast was not at all like what was shown on its website. When checking in the owner was rude. The room was in the basement of the house and it was so dark and damp. It also had a musty smell. There was very little security and the door would not lock properly so we did not... More

This was our first stay at a B&B. Our room (11) was small, but nice. The Battery Park location can't be beat. We were just disappointed that a southern cooked hot breakfast was not served in the dining room and we were not allowed in the main house. I incorrectly assumed that we would be staying in the "big house"... More

Great location but customer service and room were severely lacking. Room small, dark ,damp musty and located in a renovated cellar. Door old and lock not secure. Fell into dark room when staff failed to advise of a step down. Rooms over priced for size and amenities. Looked nothing like photos on their web site.

The Battery Carriage House is a beautiful place, in a great quiet location across from the Battery Park. The staff was SO helpful - suggesting a particular room, making dinner reservations for us, calling a cab for us, and making us feel very special. It was our wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday. They delivered champagne to our room on... More
