My fiance and I just spent a night at this B&B and we were quite impressed. We arrived in Charleston early in the afternoon, and were allowed to park our car on the property until we returned for check-in a few hours later. The location was perfect because we were just a few blocks away from where the horse-drawn carriage tours leave, so that was the first thing we did to get an overview of the city. Afterwards we were able to walk around town, including the market, and then walk back to the Inn. We were greeted with enthusiasm and hospitality, cookies and yummy iced tea, which was perfect as it was hot and MUGGY that day. Our room was fantastic, #8 on the third floor. My only complaint would be that the lighting in the bathroom was very dim, making it difficult for any lady to do hair and put on make-up, but other than that the room was great. I even used the iron and ironing board in the closet, which heated up in seconds! By the time we returned late after dinner the Inn was quiet, which was nice and made for a restful sleep in a very comfortable bed. Breakfast the next morning was delicious, with hot coffee, blueberry pancakes and crispy bacon, oh and of course, grits. The check-out was a breeze. Overall, this Inn is an EXCELLENT value for the cost. Every other B&B I looked at was over $300 per night, where as this room was $160. If we go back to Charleston we would definitely stay here again, and I'm not easy to please ;)
