First the good news- the staff of this small B&B was most accommodating and helpful. The location is great.
Now the not so good news- this building is very old. Obviously needed maintenance has been deferred. There is a sometimes subtle difference between cozy and shabby; this inn falls in the latter category: old furniture, old linens, poor kitchen and dining (?) areas, and a parking lot that only Houdini could admire...you don't just exit, you have to plan your escape on the ridiculously narrow driveway. I also wonder about fire safety- where was the second means of egress from the second floor?
There are great B&B's in Charleston. This is not one of them.
