Visit Website


The Inn at I'On a seven room Boutique Inn. The Jacob Bond House is a "French Quarter" style stucco carriage house complete with a beautiful walled courtyard with fountian, wrought iron gates, balconies and all the charm of a bit of New Orleans right here in Charleston. Located right across the street from the main Inn it features 4 separate rooms one of which is a 2 1/2 room suite. The Inn is located in the award winning I'on community in Mt Pleasant SC only seven minutes from historic downtown Charleston and ten minutes from the beaches of Sullivans Island and Isle of Palms. Although the look and feel of the Inn will remind you of an Inn that is decades old the building has just been completed in 2009. Unlike most small intimate boutique Inns where you sacrifice amenities for charm rest assured this is not the case at the Inn at I'On. Complimentary full service gourmet breakfast is included with your room Tues thru Sunday, there is no breakfast served on Monday. Preferred seating in the dining room for dinner is also available. Our Inn guests are also members for the day at the private I'On Club featuring three swimming pools, seven lighted clay tennis courts, fitness center, club house and many special services.

Great in all areas but one

4.4 on April 23, 2015

The only negative aspect of our stay was check-in. The young girl was not able to answer our questions, and did nothing to find the answers. But other than that our stay was wonderful. The room was beautiful, very comfortable, and super clean. Breakfasts were delicious, with an extensive menu to choose from. Housekeeping did a fine job. The room was a good value for the price and I would not hesitate to stay there again in the future.

Our room was beautiful, but a chair would have been appreciated. Inadequate supply of hot water. Would have appreciated breakfast on Monday or reduced rate that day.

We stayed in the Jacob House and loved it. The room was spacious and clean. We enjoyed breakfast each morning. This is our favorite place to stay in Mt. Pleasant and it's close to the beach and Charleston.

The Hidden Gem

5 on April 12, 2015

I've named my review, The Hidden Gem, because The Inn at Ion is tucked away in a quaint pristine town call Ion. Everything about this B&B met my needs. I had a room on the third floor with an efficiency. Everything was so clean and neat, the breakfast was exactly what I ordered and delicious each morning, the staff was very friendly, and there was a wonderful fitness center guests had access to. I rate this B&B a solid 10. The next time I'm back in town, this is the only place I plan to stay.

Great value

Looking for a nite's stay while attending the family circle tennis. The room was great and the checkin was easy. Took a water taxi to charleston which worked out really well. Great value for the money and a nice area. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Another great visit at Inn at Ion

Great Place to Stay

We stayed here as we took our daily trips into Charleston. The Inn at I'on was beautiful with great service and convenient breakfasts. Not a lot to do in the immediate area but it is only a drive over the bridge to get into Charleston.

Comfortable, great value, excellent area

Do not pass up the opportunity to stay here. Compared to inns in Charleston, it is a much better value, and you do not give up anything except for proximity to downtown. The Ion area more than makes up for this, as there are walking trails and shops within easy walking distance. Public beaches are an easy 10-15 minute drive. Bed was comfortable, room was clean and attractive. Breakfast was good. Other than check-in and breakfast, there is not staff readily available, so this inn is for experienced, independent travelers who can take care of themselves. Overall, a very good inn!

Quick Getaway

3.6 on April 03, 2015

My boyfriend and I made a quick getaway to Charleston and stayed at the inn last night. The room was beautiful; spacious, wonderfully decorated, and clean. The bathroom was also spectacular with a large tub and modern style. The bed was so comfortable! Sadly what disappointed us was how loud people were and the slamming of the door constantly (between their room door and the hallway door.) I could hear conversations as they were quite loud. We went downstairs to inform someone but no one was there. I didn't see anyone but when we checked in and ate breakfast. Breakfast was also lackluster. The food was somewhat decent but service was quite unprofessional. The waitress was inappropriately dressed , gave our sides to someone else, and didn't come back and check with us. I felt the place was very classy but the waitress wearing sweatpants and a tshirt took away from the atmosphere, in my opinion. Our room was immaculate, but the noise and disappointing breakfast dampened the visit.

Amazing anniversary vacation!!!

My husband and I were on vacation for our one year wedding anniversary and our stay at the Inn at I'on was outstanding! We stayed in the Jacob Bond house and the room was absolutely beautiful and so clean! We loved the community and the hospitality. The breakfast was excellent every morning and we loved walking around town. We also really loved that the health club was available to us as an extra perk for staying at the Inn. I would HIGHLY recommend the Inn at I'on to anyone visiting Charleston/Mount Pleasant! We would also definitely come back and stay here again too!
