My husband took me here for my birthday, and we really enjoyed our over night here. It reminded me very much like a bed and breakfast we had stayed at in Savannah for our very first Valentine's Day together. I I loved the Victorian feel, and the bed was one of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in! We... More

Nice rooms,, heavy Victorian furniture but not well-thought out. My TV was directly in front of the a/c unit. OK. TV went on the floor. Breakfast is repurposed Costco packaged carbs. the breakfast room is so small that if there are more than 2 people in the room, you cannot easily move to serve yourself from the buffet, nor can...

Wonderful place to stay in Charleston. Charlene was the caretaker and she was great. Both the hosts were so helpful in directing us in our sightseeing. Very nice people and a beautiful place to stay. The cat Isabelle was a homey addition. Unfortunately they have sold the property to the college next door and the property will no longer be... More

My friend and I stayed for one night in July. The Inn is okay, but not worth the price we paid. The breakfast was not home made (frozen hash browns, microwaved bacon). With so many delicious places to eat in Charleston, I would skip it. The beds were comfortable and the space charming.

We had a loved one in a Charleston hospital and needed a room for the night. It was the 4th of July and every hotel/inn was booked. Terry (the Innkeeper) was so kind and understanding of our need - he instantly opened his inn for the night. We were able to have a good nights sleep and warm shower. Early... More

Friendly, welcoming staff, great location for the town, comfortable, perfect for our needs. Bathroom a little cramped and parking not a problem for us but could have been as limited space available. Room 6 just rather nosy through the night, lots of people walking loudly past and traffic noise. However, if we visited Charleston again would we stay there? The... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at KGIV for an anniversary getaway trip. From the moment we checked in, Charlene (house manager) made us feel right at home. The room (1B) was surprisingly large, with a generous sitting area and private bath. Although the room was at street level and next to the breakfast room, noise was minimal... More

We spent three nights in this charming Inn, that was built in 1790. Gorgeous antique furnishings in each room. Uneven, creaky floors and doors that wouldn't stay shut added to the ambiance. When asking Terry the host about the ghost tours in town he replied "We needn't do that as the Inn has a ghost. Infact it had been in... More

This was such a perfect place to stay because the location was perfect. We walked everywhere and didn't have to move our car until we left Charleston. The owners were very accommodating, they shared the history at breakfast and it was completely affordable with large rooms!
