I've stayed at this inn several times, though the most recent occasion was in 2006. At that time, anyway, the price during the off-peak season was very affordable for the beautiful room I got. With the tasteful period furnishings, it was like taking a step back into time. Since I was traveling solo, I opted to share a bathroom, and...

We heard that the second floor lounge was a great place to get a drink. Indeed, It was a beautiful historic porch. We loved the atmosphere but the service was mediocre. We had to go to the bar downstairs twice both to place our drink order and to pay.

My husband took me here for my birthday, and we really enjoyed our over night here. It reminded me very much like a bed and breakfast we had stayed at in Savannah for our very first Valentine's Day together. I I loved the Victorian feel, and the bed was one of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in! We...

Nice rooms,, heavy Victorian furniture but not well-thought out. My TV was directly in front of the a/c unit. OK. TV went on the floor. Breakfast is repurposed Costco packaged carbs. the breakfast room is so small that if there are more than 2 people in the room, you cannot easily move to serve yourself from the buffet, nor can...

Wonderful place to stay in Charleston. Charlene was the caretaker and she was great. Both the hosts were so helpful in directing us in our sightseeing. Very nice people and a beautiful place to stay. The cat Isabelle was a homey addition. Unfortunately they have sold the property to the college next door and the property will no longer be...

My friend and I stayed for one night in July. The Inn is okay, but not worth the price we paid. The breakfast was not home made (frozen hash browns, microwaved bacon). With so many delicious places to eat in Charleston, I would skip it. The beds were comfortable and the space charming.

We had a loved one in a Charleston hospital and needed a room for the night. It was the 4th of July and every hotel/inn was booked. Terry (the Innkeeper) was so kind and understanding of our need - he instantly opened his inn for the night. We were able to have a good nights sleep and warm shower. Early...

Friendly, welcoming staff, great location for the town, comfortable, perfect for our needs. Bathroom a little cramped and parking not a problem for us but could have been as limited space available. Room 6 just rather nosy through the night, lots of people walking loudly past and traffic noise. However, if we visited Charleston again would we stay there? The...

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at KGIV for an anniversary getaway trip. From the moment we checked in, Charlene (house manager) made us feel right at home. The room (1B) was surprisingly large, with a generous sitting area and private bath. Although the room was at street level and next to the breakfast room, noise was minimal...
