We've stayed in many b&b's and this was one of the worst. The lady who ran it has either done this way too long, is sick of talking to guests or just isn't friendly. When we arrived, she just gave us the key, said when breakfast was and disappeared. She didn't ask us if we needed anything. We couldn't find her and had to call her on our cell to ask for a map (we were walking) and a recommendation for dinner. She brought down this pathetic 8.5" x 11" unlegible black and white copied over and over map. We wandered out (walking) and found a place up with street with wonderful walking maps. Wouldn't you think she would pick up a few of these free maps and have them available for her guests? She had no brochures on historic Charleston, nothing. She said breakfast was at 8:30 and it was 15 minutes late both mornings. She had cold cereal (cheerios and raisin bran), unpeeled miniature oranges and biscuits/bread. She is either too old to cook or never had the talent (I assume the latter). She did not interact with the guests at breakfast at all (or at any other time either). No chit chat, not asking about her guest's trip, what they had seen, where they were going, nothing. I don't think she really cared to have anything to do with her guests at all except to collect the payment.
The house was very old, bedroom was musty, bathroom not updated and the TV was dusty, very old and the cable was grainy. The location was great (in the heart of downtown Charleston), but the service and food were bad. She never even told us goodbye. We just left.
If these folks are just doing a b&b because they have two extra bedrooms and want to supplement their retirement income, I suggest hiring a friendly person to be there during the day to greet guests and also - bring in a cook!!
