This bed and breakfast is good for several reasons. First, the location is just inside of the historic/touristy area. It is within easy walking distance of the French Quarter. Second, the room in which we stayed was comfortable and offered plenty of space to spread out and relax. However, there are some unfortunate characteristics about the home that deserve mentioning....

Phoebe Pember House is in an excellent location, within walking distance of all the beautiful streets in old Charleston, near the water, and with a 24/7 supermarket and Starbucks over the road and a free parking place. When my husband tried to book on the internet, he had terrible trouble trying to get confimation of the booking from the owners,... More

To say that this place is decrepit, run down and horrible is to over rate it. The staff were non-existent, the duvet on our bed had a hole in it and the wall paper was peeling off the walls. When you pay $230+ for a B and B, you expect a little bit of protein with your breakfast; not just... More

Was warmly greeted, but the place is a bit rundown and shabby. Promised a wine and cheese cocktail hour but it never materialized. Was interrupted twice when paying guests sought our help for linens and a room key. Staff were nowhere to be found.

This place is a hidden gem in Charleston! I happened to hear about it from a friend who had stayed there. We stayed in a carriage house that was clean and well kept. The location is great! It is in the historic district, but it is isolated enough so as to be quiet and not as loud as the hotels... More

I would like to start by saying that to stay in Charleston, SC is expensive compare to other cities in the U.S., especially in the small area of the downtown historic district that we wanted to stay in. With that being said the PPH was the most affordable place with the perfect location and free parking. I booked the room... More

Staff was terrific, very down to earth and helpful. The setting is fairly serene, considering the location is right off of a very busy street. It's conveniently located, within walking distance to everything and very close to local supermarket...that's the good news. The staff doesn't have far to go to pick up the supermarket made muffins for breakfast. So if... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Phoebe Pember House from Feb. 20th-23rd, 2012 after finding the establishment through Tripadvisor. I researched several B&B's in the historical "Peninsula" area of Charleston, and most were far more expensive than the P.P. House. I paid $125 per night ($135 - $10 AAA discount) which included breakfast served in my room each... More

We booked this b and b because it was sponsored by the retreat that we were attending. It was a charming property but it smelled horrible. It had the worst moth ball smell. When I asked the attendant the next day about the smell she said that it was not moth balls but just old. I know a moth ball... More
