This place has a lot of charm. The staff, especially the woman who cooks breakfast is very personable. Our room had a high (and I do mean high), four poster bed that I had to get a running start to get into. A dresser, desk, clothes closet, rocking chair and side chair are in the room. It is decorated in... More

This B&B was perfect for a weekend getaway with a friend. It was walkable to downtown and we felt safe coming back late at night. The staff was so friendly and accommodating, especially when it came to dietary restrictions for breakfast. The food was delicious! They also have snacks out between 4-5:00PM which are perfect after a long day out... More

A quaint B&B with an outstanding staff makes this place a winner. From the manager Lynn's down home greeting with glass of chilled white wine to Barry's breakfast historical Charleston tour de force, this place can't be beat. BTW, the breakfast and the mid afternoon wine and cheese aren't to shabby either. Enjoy!!!!

The Inn itself was very nice but trying to park in allotted area was a real adventure. We have a mid-size SUV and it was extremely tight parking. Hosts were very accomadating and breakfast, both days, was delicious. Location is within walking distance to several good restaurants of Which Lana was the best.

We are so happy to hear you love our Innkeepers as much as we do. Although parking can be tight, most downtown B&B's do not have the luxury of private off-street parking so we are always thankful we do. We hope you'll be able to come visit again soon! More

Great location (quaint and safe). We were very grateful for the on-site parking--it's a little tight but totally manageable and it's nothing that they'd be able to fix, they do the best with the space they have. Loved how we could stay just one night instead of a two-night minimum (since we were only in town for one night)--not all... More

We just had a day in Charleston and this is in a good location (not central but easily walkable/busable) to explore. It's a b&b rather than a hotel in a location near the Medical University in a quiet suburban street. Very friendly Southern welcome and excellent service at breakfast. Room was comfy and clean. Only issue - it is quite... More

So nice to hear you enjoyed your stay. Comparable to other B&B's, our Inn is very reasonably priced and includes a Southern gourmet prepared breakfast as well as afternoon wine and cheese-a great value for the #1 city in the country. We hope you can visit our wonderful Inn again soon! More

We enjoyed our stay, the breakfasts on the patio with other guests, using their bikes to get around. We especially appreciated their generosity in not charging us for the 3 nights we had reserved since our airline delayed our flight so much we stayed for only 2 nights, which is all they charged us for. We were on the third... More
