The house is like an old mansion, and is very fancy with old trimmings and doors inside, like stepping into yesterday. The rooms are each decorated in a special way, and are spacious and beautiful. One room has an outside entrance. It is very close to downtown Summerville, and it is easy to get to Charleston from there, about 25... More

Perfect hosts, excellent breakfast, and location make the PD a great place to stay! Our dog had a great time playing with the owners three labs while we enjoyed walking to dinner and shops. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with Dianne who is very creative and interesting, and evening outdoor fire pit was fun . Will definitely return! Note: you should... More

We enjoyed the lovely "blue" room at the Pink Dolphin B&B. Dianne was very helpful and accommodating upon our arrival. She got coffee and tea for us to enjoy before coming to breakfast. She made suggestions regarding dinner options. The Southern breakfast was abundant and delicious. She stayed and chatted with us during our meal. We enjoyed meeting her fur... More

Some B&B owners are businesspeople who provide what you need from a formal distance, while others are "naturals" who are truly friendly, helpful, attentive and knowledgeable. Dianne and Ken are naturals. They genuinely like people, and enjoy making them happy. I had the Carolina Room, a very comfortable and tastefully appointed room with a jacuzzi-style bathtub. The breakfasts were scrumptious... More

Diane was the perfect hostess! The Pink Room was so cute and nice, the bed was comfortable, and the tub was great! Breakfast was delicious and Diane and I had a wonderful conversation! The labs, Ella and Cassie, are adorable and well behaved. I also got a massage from Renae (sorry if I spelled your name wrong) and it was... More

We spent a night at The Pink Dolphin and I must say it was true Southern Hospitality at its finest. Upon our arrival my husband, and our two dogs were greeted by Ken and Dianne. Later, we were introduced to their “girls” Ella and Cassie, their lovely and friendly yellow labs. Dianne made sure that we were comfortable and that... More

We always enjoy the kindness and welcome we receive from Diane and Ken, our hosts. The breakfast is unbeatable and the room, The Pink Room, was fantastic. Cozy and comfortable bed and a sitting area that allowed us to enjoy coffee and tea in our room before coming down for breakfast. We even brought our Duke, who was fantastically behaved... More

Our stay was wonderful. We would be very happy staying here again. These are great people; they were very friendly and offered to help us with everything we asked for and more. By way of example, we were offered help with our luggage, advice on good places to eat, and even an electric plug to plug in our electric car.... More

I traveled alone and only stayed for one night but thoroughly enjoyed my time here. The pink room was perfect for me. It could be a little noisy due to street traffic if you wanted to sleep in late which was not my agenda. There is a nice little nook to work or read and internet access. Diane and Ken... More
