Reviewed March 10, 2014

We visit Charleston at least once a year and usually try to stay at a different location - just for variety. I am so glad we stumbled onto this inn -- wonderful staff, enormous clean rooms, fireplaces and the best continental breakfast offering I've ever had at a hotel that offers this service. You are 1 mile from the tip of the Battery so everything you need is within walking distance. We parked the car and didn't need it again until we left.

Thank you so much for choosing the Ansonborough Inn and for taking the time to write this lovely review on TripAdvisor! I am so happy to hear that you "accidentally" found us and that everything about our hotel was to your liking. We try really hard to provide our guests with a great continental breakfast, despite our very limited kitchen facilities, so I am extremely happy that you found breakfast to be top-notch. I hope that perhaps you will decide that your hotel search is over and the Ansonborough Inn will be your "home away from home" on your annual visit to Charleston! Thank you again for choosing the Ansonborough Inn and, of course, for this great review! I hope to see you again in the future!

Our Charleston pied-a-terre for three nghts. Cannot write enough nice things about the Ansonborough Inn - excellent and large apartment room accomodations with stunning high ceiling, coffee-maker, sink, a small refrigerator, eating area, sofa and easy chairs, flat-screen TV, in-room safe, writing desk, etc., etc.; stayed just off the lobby on the ground floor (don't worry about street noise - double-glazed windows!), beautiful cathedral-style lobby atrium, cozy complimentary afternoon wine and cheese and hot breakfast room, friendly staff, a block and a half north of the Charleston market, across the street from a stunning and large Harris Teeter supermarket, SunTrust bank and ATM just behind the inn, convenient on-site parking (added charge), and all within walking distance from the core downtown Charleston area. Would I stay here again? Yes - a bargain for what you get in Southern charm and memories in one of America's truly wonderful cites.

Room Tip: Found the ground-level room to be very convenient and quickly accessed with absolutely no drawbacks.

My partner and I stayed at the Ansonborough Inn on our return trip from Savannah and were in love with the inn from the moment we stepped in the front door.

The inn is well appointed, very clean and the room was extremely spacious. In addition, the inn staff was probably the friendliest I've encountered in quite some time and willing to help with suggestions for the great city of Charleston.

Great complimentary breakfast and wonderful rooftop deck with views of the city.

The ONLY minor issue I had with the inn is that the walls are paper thin. So thin that I could actually hear the person in the next room over snoring. But outside of this, the inn is a great place to stay and in a wonderful location.

We spent two nights at Ansonborough Inn and loved it from the minute we opened the door. The staff, especially Jenna at the reception desk, treated us as though we were extra special. Our room was a suite with beautiful furniture, a huge granite bathroom, and a flat screen TV. There was lots of room to move around. The wine and cheese hour is lovely and delicious, and the breakfast is much better than most continental breakfasts. There is coffee, tea, lemonade, cookies, fruit,and water available all day. The ladies who take care of the refreshment area are extremely friendly and welcoming. Also, the rooftop terrace is a nice place to sit.

If you like to read a bit at night, be sure to pack some light bulbs higher than about 40 watts, though. There were many lamps, but none to read by--unless you want to use the unpleasant overhead light.

We would definitely stay here again, though. Really a nice place and an easy walk to everywhere! Also, the parking lot just across the quiet street, makes it easy to use your car.

My wife and I enjoyed 8 nights in this great INN. The staff is just super and they really take good care of all your needs. We really enjoyed the wine and cheese each night and they made a big effort to make sure we had plenty each night during the ICE storm in late Jan. We just couldn't believe the effort this staff put in for our enjoyment and helping care for us in the 2 days we were inside due to the weather. Carrie, the Inn Keeper, even walked across the bridge to get to work..WHAT A GREAT STAFF. THANKS oakwoodmoby

Room Tip: Better value if you can go from Sun to Fri. Maybe to much noise on ground floor but they are more c...

My wife and I enjoyed four restful nights at this small hotel in the heart of Old Charleston. Alerted by TA reviews, we asked for and were given a room away from the traffic noise of E. Bay Street and the early morning deliveries at the supermarket across Hasell Street. Our large junior suite on the first floor was clean and tastefully decorated. We especially enjoyed the complementary breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese hour. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Rooms on the river side are quieter.

The Ansonborough Inn is a lovely place to stay in Charleston. It has a warm atmosphere that will take you back in time. Our room had 24 foot ceilings with huge rustic wooden beams and beautiful paintings throughout, plus all the amenities you would expect in a AAA 4 Diamond rated inn.
They have a nice wine & cheese spread every evening as well.
All within walking distance of Market Street and several highly rated restaurants.
We forgot our hanging clothes on our way out. They contacted us within an hour and shipped them to our home.
We will definitely be staying there again!
