My husband and I stayed at the Ashley Inn for 4 nights for our anniversary vacation in Charleston. It was a lovely and relaxing vacation, despite the intense heat.
Ashley Inn is located in a great area. We heard that anything north of Calhoun can be iffy.. Even though Ashley is north of Calhoun, we felt perfectly safe. It is right around the corner to a free trolly stop. When we visited the downtown area, we usually drove and luckily found free parking each time (less than a 5 minute drive).
The rooms in Ashley were lovely. We reserved the smallest room (room 2), but were upgraded for two nights to room 3 due to renovations. We actually ended up preferring room 2 because it had a newer bathroom and it was just too hot to sit on the porch connecting to the larger rooms.
While the breakfasts served were delicious (peaches and cream crepes, orange croissant french toast, ham and cheese crepes), we wished that there was a choice. Hubby likes savory and I like sweet, so each breakfast, one of us was a bit disappointed. We love B&Bs and have visited many in our travels. Ashley Inn is the only one we've been to that did not offer a couple of options for breakfast.
For the most part, the staff at Ashley were helpful, though since they only worked there, they did not seem as involved as live-in owners of other B&Bs that we've visited. Barry the owner, however, was very friendly and spent each breakfast chatting with us and telling stories about Charleston.
Overall, we had a wonderful vacation staying at Ashley Inn!
