Lovely stay at 1837 B &B. Convenient location for walking to many points of interest in the historic area of Charleston. The room was beautifully decorated and comfortable. As noted on the website, walking up stairs in necessary for the second and third floor rooms, and the parking lot can only accommodate smaller cars.

We are so glad that we chose 1837 for our first stay in Charleston. The location is perfect for walking to a number of different neighborhoods (we had lots of ground we wanted to cover), the property is absolutely charming, and the daily breakfasts and afternoon teas (do NOT skip the Peanut Butter Bomb Cake) were a great way to...

We have stayed here several times over the years and have never been disappointed. It's in a quiet area, convenient walking distances to The College of Charleston and the historic areas. Excellent breakfasts. This is our go-to place when we take visitors to Charleston.

This B & B is fairly typical except for a few items. The outside of the building is unremarkable and average in appearance. In advertising, they warn you that there is no elavator - very few B & B's have them - but we were escorted to a third floor room with many sets of stairs. It is quite a...

This B&B has a great location, is reasonably priced with a very friendly staff. The Inn is clean and the breakfasts are good. Coffee doesn't start until 8:00 so be patient with that - breakfast is 8:30-9:30. If you have any food allergies let them know and they'll prepare something ahead of time for you. The parking is tight so...

The 1837 B&B is reasonably priced and very comfortable. We stayed in the Carriage House and it was wonderful. Parking is tight, so bring a small car or you'll end up having to find a spot on on local streets. The B&B Staff was super!

I chose the 1837 B&B because it was one of the few bed and breakfasts that had rooms with two beds- important for me since I was traveling with my father.
