This was my second time staying at this beautiful and friendly B & B. For a C of C college visit you can't beat the location. Plus, the close proximity to downtown Charleston and the famous King Street shopping can't be beat! The rooms were clean and beautifully appointed. Plus, the beds were very comfortable. The Innkeepers were warm and...

We lucked out when we found a room at this lovely-but-small B&B in the historic older section of Charlston. Free parking and a terrific home-cooked buffett breakfast were included. Charlene, the very friendly and competent on-site manager/hostess/cook couldn't have made us feel more welcome! And when she wasn't around on the weekend, the owner was also very friendly and helpful...and...

What a perfect place to stay in Charleston! The George IV is the best. It's location is very central so that almost everything in Charleston is walkable as long as you are used to walking. We paid $179 per night for weekdays and $200 for weekend nights- much more reasonable than for the other historic (this one is circa 1790)...

My husband and I stayed in room #2, which was gorgeous and with a very comfortable bed. The room had a private bathroom, however my husband is over 6ft tall and didn't quite fit in the shower! The breakfast left something to be desired- we expected a little higher quality for such a nice B&B. However, it's in a great...

This was our first visit to Charleston and this B&B was just perfect! Very nice room with very comfortable bed. Great location that was close to everything. Charlene the manager was fabulous! We could not have asked for a better hostess. She asked what we wanted to do while there and gave us great recommendations. We would definitely stay here...

We had a mix up and never scheduled a place to stay in Charleston. I called the night before in desperation and they were able fit us in. The innkeepers could not have been more nice or inviting. The staff was second to none. Charlene has an amazing personality and her cheese grits aren't too bad either. The made our...

My Mom and I had a wonderful time in Charleston in this fully restored historic mansion. The hosts are incredibly welcoming and helpful with suggestions so you can make the most of your trip. Definitely a great find! :)

We wanted to stay in one of Charleston's historic homes, Rooms are beautifully decorated but bathrooms are TINY. Location is good - just off King Street and surrounded by the College of Charleston, The only public space downstairs is the cramped and disappointing breakfast room. Food was good, but the same each day and you served yourself from a buffet.

We love this B&B! The room was very large and decorated in period style. It is right in the heart of the historic section of Charleston. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They gave us tips and suggestions on what to see while we were in Charleston. The breakfast was very good. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

“The Inn is located in the heart of the University of Charleston campus so expect noise and sandwich shops. Fine dining is downtown.”
