This Inn, has the makings of a beautiful place to stay. It's at a great location, with gorgeous gardens, but it does need a lot of money spent on it, to get it back to its original splendor! The rooms were small, but quite nice, with a comfortable bed, but as for the breakfast, that was very disappointing. If you... More

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend. Very charming and great hospitality! From the minute we walked in until we checked out, we felt right at home. The location is wonderful. It is right across the street from Battery Park. The weekend we were there, there were 3 weddings. The restaurants and shopping were awesome! But if... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Battery Carriage House Inn for our honeymoon. We had wanted to stay here because the website made it look amazing, and the haunting was interesting. We were highly disappointed in our stay, to say the least. After spending the day hiking on Bulls Island, and being eaten alive by bugs, we... More

Quiet, historic, excellent service. We loved the location (we like to walk a mile to dinner and back) and were happy walking all over Charleston and not needing a car to do all the city sites. Next time we will rent a car to do the sights farther afield. The breakfast isn't hot, but it is much more than typical... More

Peaceful, beautiful and very friendly staff. Every attention given to detail. Wonderful evening wine/snack reception. Only weak area is that it is not in the house you see from the street, but rather behind , there is not a common/gathering area for breakfast. Although brought to your room, I missed the conversation around the table . Also it wasn't the... More

My husband and I were married on September 6th and spent several days at the inn. The staff were more than wonderful! Had complimentary champagne which was so romantic. The room was beautiful and we really enjoyed breakfast on the patio. Wonderful vacation! Can not say enough about the staff!!!!

Our first time to Charleston to celebrate 30th anniversary, everyone on staff were GREAT! Complimentary Bubbly to celebrate. We had a King room, Jacuzzi in all rooms w/King bed! We enjoyed it very much! Only regret, wish we had stayed longer, CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN! J & A Hatley stayed 09/17-09/21/2014. Not long enough!!

Of all the beautiful places to stay in Charleston...the lower quarters might as well be a basement, dark and damp, and room smelled very musty, and the windows didn't open. The only solution that staff could come up with was a fan, so we slept with our door open. That did not help much. No views, though a cute garden... More

Our stay was actually earlier than stated, but maybe my review will be enlightening. Many people do indeed stay with Battery Carriage and their staff having been specifically drawn by the ghost stories. My wife and I were highly driven by these rumors and booked room 10. Our accommodations were nice and comfortable. .nothing overly extravagant for sure. The staff... More

Our room was super cute, small but very nice. It was quiet and the people who work there were really nice. We enjoyed our couple of days there. The location is great as well! I would definitely book this place again!
