Tired from my drive, I was excited to finally get into bed. The inn had called me on my way down, and right off the bat it was very pleasant, I had high hopes. When I arrived, all the directions were very clear and easy, the room was a refreshing temperature, and was clean and simple. Not a lot of junk and clutter, not dusty, musty or smelly. I slept like a baby. Let me tell you about these beds, OH MY. I could have slept for days. OH! and the sound machine, I can’t sleep without noise so that was wonderful. Overall, I loved it. I felt welcomed and appreciated. If a room is available, make a reservation. Great spot, and a great host. Nicely done.

I stay at Palmer's Pinckney Inn as often as I can when I travel to Charleston. It is just 1 block away from the Market and easy walking distance to pretty much anything I want to do. It is family owned and operated and everyone has always been welcoming. This is a converted old home, so has a lot of the charm including an original hand painted mural in the entry to the Equestrian and Parisian Rooms. I would recommend to couples and single travelers that want to be close to the action.

We stayed in the Charles Rice Room (not sure if this is the correct name) for 2 nights and the Cottage Room for 1 night, both at the top of the stairs. Nothing bad to say about this b&b at all! It's incredibly charming/lots of character, clean, comfortable and with an amazing central location that is walkable to pretty much everything! The staff are beyond friendly and helpful. The actual facility and staff (Carla, Martha, Angela) made our first trip to Charleston really memorable and we'll definitely make a point to stay there again when we come back! It's also a really great deal in the area at a good price point. All in all, if you want a less commercial, more 'authentic' experience in Charleston, stay here!

Room Tip: The Cottage Room is cute but on smaller side, your stay will be most enjoyable if you spend...

I think when you come to a charming city like Charleston you’re looking for a charming experience, and Palmer’s Pinckney is exactly that. Located a block away from Charleston City Market, the neighborhood is fantastic for wandering. The rooms are a little bit twee in a good way - my Paris-themed room had lovely touches like an in-room gas fireplace, a sound machine, a comfy king bed, and robes in the bathroom with a rainfall shower. There’s a super cute Carribean bar/restaurant called Cane’s Rhum Bar a block away, lots of historic homes and churches and shops on the surrounding blocks, and your next door neighbor is a horse stable for carriage tours. This is not a 5 star luxury resort but it’s lovely, comfy, and cost $99 on Christmas weekend. Highly recommend.

We knew we were getting the smallest room, but wanted to be downtown and the price was right. The last part was our own fault because you get what you pay for. The bathroom had a layer of dust on the baseboard, the shower was mildewy and the shower door stuck often. The door to the bathroom squeaked so badly, that any night time visit would certainly wake your partner. Oh, and there are no curtains (just a tiny valance) on the window so any resident in the apartment right across the way gets the benefit of a free show. The bed that everyone described as wonderful was also a big disappointment. The mattress felt like it was 30 years old with sagging in the middle that reminded us of the poor bedragled horses next door that need to drag around all the tourists in town. The people there are super sweet, but the stay was less so. The door had a deadbolt but were we advised that it doesn't always work so we probably shouldn't use it. The expectation was a charming B&B, but instead it was just an old house with furniture that looked like it was picked up on special.

Response from Palmer_Pinckney_Inn, Owner at Palmer's Pinckney Inn
Responded Dec 13, 2019
Thank you for this review. We have checked everything that had been a problem for you. We cannot find the squeak in the bathroom door. Although we had our carpenter come over and check on it. The mattress is one year old and is firm pillow top Beauty Rest. The curtain in the bathroom completely hides the view and gives you complete privacy. We have checked the shower door and it seems to shut very firmly and open very easily. There is no mold inside the shower. Your concern for the horses is understandable but these horses used to work for the Amish and would never get a day off. Now they work 3 months on and 3 months off and the owners takes extremely great care of them as it is their livelihood. They are washed and groomed everyday and their drivers love them, hug them and kiss them. These animals are family. If it wasn't for the carriage companies employing these horses they would have been sent straight to the glue factory and in your dog food.
