“Happy Faces”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2009

Accommodations were unique and spotless at The Vendue Inn and the location was perfect. The service far exceeded any I have experienced in years of travel.
Every staff member was consistently warm, friendly and anticipating
your every need. It was a flawless stay and I can't wait to return again and
again... How do you spell "Awesome".

We have just returned from a four-night stay at the Vendue, long enough to "know" the property. The entire staff, including the excellent manager and her assistant were extremely friendly and helpful - could not do enough for us. This attitude permeates the entire staff from the desk people to the servers. The breakfasts were just what we wanted with plenty of choice, hot and tasty. Whoever ownes this property is also to be commended as it is easy to get behind on repairs and maintenance - but not here. The property is kept in pristine condition.

We were in Charleston for a wedding over the weekend and we had the best stay possible at the Vendue. The service was above and beyond and everyone around the inn was very helpful throughout our stay! The bellhop's were great to work with and would always greet us whenever we approached the door and ALWAYS asked if we needed anything or any ideas of where to head out to around town.

Our room had a great feel and bed was UNBELIEVABLY COMFORTABLE! Each night we were asked if we would like our bed turned down and we were also offered water each night. The maid staff keep our room very clean and neat throughout our stay and they even went as far as to put coins in dishes, straighten the bathroom counter, and even put my wife's jewelery in a dish in the bathroom. Not thrown in a dish but laid out neatly on the counter in the bathroom.

We have been to Charleston several times and I must say this was the BEST bed and breakfast that we have ever stayed at during our visits! We will definitely be staying at the Vendue Inn again!

Cheers
M & K

Liked this place very much. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. The breakfast (included) was surprisingly good, and the wine & cheese in the afternoon was a nice touch. Within easy walking distance of most of the main sights and plenty of excellent restaurants nearby. The only ruffle was with our room. At first, we were placed in the auxiliary building across the street, up on the second floor. The room had no window -- only a skylight over the bed. Also, there is only one stairway to the second floor, so in the event of a fire, you'd better pray it doesn't involve the stairway. Staff was very gracious is moving us to another room in the main building the next day. That room was comparatively small -- adequate, but small -- but there were only two chairs in the room and, let's just say that if the CIA can't get anything out of Al Qaeda prisoners by waterboarding them, they might have them sit in one of these chairs for a half hour or so. That ought to do it. All in all though, would I go back again? Definitely!

My husband and I stayed at the Vendue Inn as part of our first anniversary trip. We ignored a waiter's warning to "check out the rooftop bar, but don't stay there." Even though my husband was assured that we had a very nice, quiet room on the 2nd floor, our room was right next to the elevator which (while quiet on the hallway) is extremely loud. I was unable to sleep, and politely mentioned this to the staff at checkout. I was told that the walls are thin, but that a manager would be calling me to follow up. The staff member seemed annoyed that I brought it up, and I got the distinct impression that I shouldn't have bothered him with it. Management did not follow up with me in any form. I should have moved rooms the night before, but didn't want to bother anyone.

Otherwise, the Inn is in need of a renovation - starting with the bathrooms. The decor looks old. Other than the staff member that dismissed me about the noise, the staff was excellent.

This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in...it exceeded our expectations! We stayed in a king room with a working fireplace, hardwood floors, and beautifully decorated with antiques, and the price was very reasonable. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They offer a complimentary full hot breakfast in their restaurant every morning for hotel guests- it was amazing, as well as complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoon, and cookies and milk in the lobby in the evening. The location of the hotel is also fantastic- it's the best you'll get...east bay street and market street have tons of restaurants and shops. It's safe to walk around at night on these streets- in fact there are tons of other tourists walking until at least midnight! Enjoy your stay, I think you'll be just as impressed.

My husband and I decided last minute to go to Charleston for the weekend. We called a few of some of the hotels we were familiar in. We got a very competitive rate and a great room. We stayed in a junior suite. Big room and big bathroom! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and not just your pastries and coffee that others offer. Loved the free use of the bikes and the milk and cookies offered at night. (but get there early, they disappear fast!) Great inn with different room options!
