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.

Ion is a superb luxury Inn, both comfortable and welcoming. We have stayed 6 times at different periods of the year. For longer durations while in Charleston and also just for a night when driving from our home in Connecticut to Florida. Fantastic value for money and a superb location.......

My fiance and I stayed at The Inn at Ion as it was close to Charleston, looked gorgeous, updated and clean and was a great value - all of these reasons were 100% verified upon our visit. We would most definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone. A hidden gem!

We stayed at i'on for a little weekend getaway and it was fantastic. The room was gorgeous and the bed was so comfortable we wanted to just snuggle up in it for the whole weekend. We will definitely be back for sure!

On our first trip we were only booked for one night, however after checking in to this lovely Inn, we already wished we had booked another night! The room was beautiful and spotless! The king size bed was very comfortable and the fireplace made it even more romantic! The bathroom was spacious and clean and the tub was oversized and so great for a relaxing bath! The porch with rocking chairs topped off this lovely space. The breakfast was wonderfully prepared! We have already booked our next trip for my partner's birthday next month! I have a feeling this will be our new place to stay when visiting Charleston area!

Wife and I returned to the Inn at Ion for our third year in a row. There is no where else we would go. Our room is #11 at Jacob Bond House. Would/have suggested to others that they make plans to stay there when they visit Charleston.

We stayed at the Inn for a long weekend and had a wonderful experience. Across the board, all of the staff were very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Dining is limited to breakfast only, but breakfast was spectacular. Our room was very clean, the bed quite comfortable, and despite the cold weather, it was nice to be able to go out on the covered porch overlooking the main street. The neighborhood is very pedestrian friendly & safe for runners / walkers, and the location is centrally located for access to Mt. Pleasant, Sullivan's Island, & Downtown. If you plan to spend the majority of your time in Downtown Charleston, there are likely more convenient locations right downtown, but for us, the location was great. My only suggestion is that it would be nice to have a chair or loveseat in the room to sit on so that we wouldn't be limited to a desk chair or the bed, but this is a minor complaint in the big picture of our stay.

2 night stay in early December. Stayed in room 9 which is across the street from the main Inn. Very spacious room. It dawned on me that this must double as a meeting room as the TV is a decent distance from the bed & there's an exit sign inside the room that illuminates in red when the lights are off. This didn't bother us though. We love this neighborhood & it's an excellent location. The breakfast was really good, fresh cooked to your order & a great selection to choose from on the menu. Our server was attentive, please be sure to tip accordingly even though the breakfast is included in your room rate. By far a better value than the usual Hampton Inn that we stay at This will be our home away from home anytime we're in the area.

Our son's wedding was in Charleston and all aspects of this event were downtown except the rehearsal dinner for 120 people. We reserved the Creek Club for this special night. ( an absolute perfect choice! ). With so much to do we were decided to get 5 rooms at the Inn for our family and guests. The location was perfect! Only a few minutes from the Creek Club and blocks from all the shopping you might need. This quaint area was beautiful. The Inn it self made the weekend so much more comfortable. The rooms were spacious and nicely decorated but had all the modern amenities you need. Breakfast served everyday was excellent. I have no hesitation to recommend this hotel to anyone. I'm trying to think of a new reason for a weekend away just to stay here again!

Ignore the crabby reviewers -- this is a lovely property with private rooms and baths and friendly, helpful staff in a pretty suburb minutes from downtown Charleston. This is more like an inn than a B&B -- rooms have private baths, guests come and go as they please, diners sit separately during breakfast. I loved the privacy. The two women who staff the front desk are incredibly helpful. My daughter was under-the-weather during a portion of our stay, and they recommended a pharmacy, pediatrician, etc. Beach club is a few blocks away and more like a community pool than a private club, but nice enough. A good restaurant and coffee shop are in a nearby shopping plaza. This is a city suburb, so lots of highway traffic, but the inn is located in a nice, quiet enclave. Great place to stay if you don't mind a little driving to get to sights and beaches!
