the room was mediocre; the breakfast was a joke-Comfort Inn is better-would not recommend this Inn and should not be Inn registry-would stay at the Hampton Inn next time

If you're looking to enjoy the historic city of Charleston, SC, you could do much worse than the beautiful John Rutledge House Inn. The room was amazing, the only -ve would be some traffic noise. Very sweet though, amazing decor.
Highly recommended.

Stayed: May 2007

My husband & I spent only one night at The Rutledge House. It was a quick business trip mixed with some well-deserved luxury. We enjoyed everything about JRH. Our room was beautifully decorated and had every convenience. We were surprised to find a mini fridge hidden nicely in the room. The staff was very attentive and more than ready to answer any questions. After the evening tea in the ballroom it was time to get ready for dinner. We walked to Slightly North of Broad. Food was to die for. We walked back to the hotel and enjoyed looking at the artifacts and scrap books that let us get a glimpse back into the past when John Rutledge and his wife lived in the house. We were fascinated by all we read and saw. We would recommend JRH to everyone who reads this. We felt as though we were "at home" even though we were surrounded by strangers (friendly stranger).

I just returned from Charleston where we spent Sisters Weekend. The Inn was cute and historic. The hotel staff was helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was nice too. However, we were shocked at the rudeness of the Inn Keeper.
Upon our arrival the Inn Keeper came to our door and very rudely confronted us about booking through Expedia. Our reservation defaulted to 1 guest (rather than 3), since we had 1 plane ticket. She told us we were responsible for paying for $150 extra to cover the cost of the other 2 guests. After looking into it on the hotels website) we found that their rates are to include 2 guests, so we confronted her and ended up paying extra for a 3rd guest. Regardless, she was so rude and seemed to talk down to us (we figured it was because we were three younger girls). She could have given us the same information in a nice and kind way.
She never came back to check on us, or see how our stay was.
Then to top everything off- we were in the main house (Room 2), and had a ton of traffic by our window, also workers stood outside our window on their breaks and would talk quite loud.
The shower was either scolding hot or freezing cold. I never took a nice shower-- always rushed in and out . I was disappointed that we had to carry all of our luggage to and from the cars, especially going up and down a bunch of stairs. Next time I visit Charleston I will find a new place to stay.

We stayed at the historically significant John Rutledge House Inn during our first visit through the south and were pleased with the accommodations and location. We had a huge room in the main house and our friends had a lovely room in the Carriage House. Breakfast was delicious and we had a choice of having it served upstairs in the beautiful (former) ballroom, outdoors on the patio or in our room. The helpful staff made dinner reservations for us and provided info on sightseeing. Charleston was a lovely city--we hope to return and would stay at the Rutledge House again.
