I really enjoyed my stay at the wonderful Ashley Inn. The Inn is beautifully furnished and located on a shady street very near the historic district. The Innkeeper was very welcoming and helpful. She provided me with a map of the historic district and showed me the trolley lines and where to find the restaurant where I had reservations. Several... More

We arrived very early to find the gardener doing the garden. He turned out to be the owner who was very welcoming and was very knowledgeable about the town and its history. Our room had a four poster bed and good facilities. There are many good eateries nearby.

The house is beautiful but the management is very poor. My memories of this place are very disappointing because of very absentee innkeeper. No suggestions for sightseeing or restaurant tips. No care given to guests needs. Example - coffee ready in am with only packets of artificial cream. (!) Commented about that so they provided cream next morning in bowl... More

The inn was attractive with comfortable rooms in charmingly and fittingly dated decor. It was clean and the breakfasts were good. What really stands out, though was the staff who was lovely, kind-hearted and made our stay special. A big thank you to Ashley, Kealy (I hope I'm spelling your name correctly) and Amelia.

we choose this property because it was saturday so we need a location in a walking distance to bsbi synagogue and to the historical area of charleston. otherwise an hotel outside the city with sensible price is a better option. the propert preserves traditional style what means very nice but less practical.

Dear bestZagreb, We are happy that you described our inn as "nice". We try very hard to maintain this 180 year old property to the period of its origination yet with modern conveniences. I believe you will find our rates more than competitive with other accommodation in Charleston. I could very well be that the IP address was not attuned... More

Was disappointed with our stay. Bathroom shower curtain was molded. Breakfast was cold and not good. No coffee available in the afternoon. Would not come back. The room and bath was very small and crowded with furniture. The gardens in the yard were all overgrown. The place needs some TLC.

After a long drive, we were happy to arrive at the Ashley Inn. The place had a real southern feeling about it. Porches on the ground level and the first floor. It was very clean and nice to see. The bedrooms were fine, plenty spacious. See however my comments below on choosing a room. Breakfast was delicious. The Ashley is... More

My husband and I stayed here in mid-February, and were very pleased with our room with a balcony, the delicious breakfast, and the attentive staff. The inn is a stately southern home in the Federalist style, and beautifully decorated. We checked in just in time for wine and cheese offered in the parlor, which we really appreciated, as we were...

Pretty place but big disappointment due to our room situation. Room #1 is right next to kitchen/office combo. Therefore you hear every word of the employees- early in the morning or when trying to take an afternoon nap before a great night out. And.....you get to pay full price! Frankly soured the whole experience for us. This is our 18th... More

The hotel was very pretty, very clean, and the people running it seemed very nice. However, it was annoying to us to only have breakfast available between 8-9. We ended up having to go out for breakfast both mornings. The bed was comfortable and our room was very spacious and cute. It's a 15-20 minute walk to King Street so... More
