The Inn at Ion

148 Civitas Street , Mount Pleasant, SC 29464 USA (Show map)


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.

Forever Fond Memories

This place is truly the best kept secret in Charelston! I found it on line while researching places to stay for a September wedding. I just didn't want to stay at a chain hotel and found the Inn at I'on randomly and took a chance. I even talked another couple into taking a chance, too. Boy... am I ever glad we did. I will never forget this place, and neither will my friends. I can still taste Fernando's (their chef) breakfast shrimp and grits and his cherizo, pepper and egg wraps...mmmm. Mike and his staff provided friendly, curtious service. An evening glass of wine in the rocking chairs on our deck off our room.priceless. I could go on (and on) but I'll let you go make your reservation and find out for yourself! Ps the neighborhood is amazing...walk around shopping, and don't miss the Irish pub across the street and the Belgian Gelato place a couple of blocks away!! I

Lovely Inn & Neighborhood

I stayed here with a few friends and we all want to stay longer if we ever visit Charleston again! I wasn't sure what to expect with our room being on the third floor, but it was great! Key things I appreciated: Quiet neighborhood, easy to come & go, staff was very helpful & friendly, parking a breeze. They don't serve breakfast on Mondays, which we didn't mind since there's a great coffee shop within walking distance (Collective Coffee Co.)!

My husband and I stayed at The Inn at Ion while we were helping our granddaughter move in to her dorm at The College of Charleston. We loved it!!!! After all the hustle and bustle of busy Charleston (which we loved) it was wonderful coming to The Inn for some peace and quititude!

Absolutely Charming!

The Inn is lovely! The room we stayed was beautiful. It had a private a large bathroom with a very large tub. The room was in pristine and the beach themed decor instantly put you at ease. There's even an elevator for luggage and wheelchairs. The Inn also gives you a pass to the club across the street that has a 24hr gym, 3 pools and tennis courts! The breakfast was scrumptious! You placed your order the night before and came down the next morning and Sat at your personal table in the sun room. It was such a wonderful romantic stay that we can't wait to come back!

not a quit location

3.8 on August 20, 2015

I was less than happy with the traffic at street level and the pace of the location, I generally expected a more quiet and slower traffic at the doors and found it just to busy and noisy. room was very good and loved it ...but in a different location

Innkeeper Response
So sorry you did not enjoy your stay.......there are all styles of Inns through out the country and there are great "quiet" country Inns even here in Charleston....The Inn at Ion is not that style Inn..we are located only a few minutes not only from downtown Charleston but from the beaches and all the great restaurants as well.....Most of guests enjoy the fact that we are so close and enjoy the hustle of a "City" Inn...they also enjoy having a great rate, fabulous room and membership to the exclusive Ion Tennis and Swim Club and they are only minutes from all Charleston has to offer..I would say for most this makes us a "GREAT" location...

A comfortable inn

3.4 on August 19, 2015

The Inn at Ion was comfortable and well appointed. The only problem we had was with noise. The walls are very thin and there is a lot of traffic on the road our room faced. Each room has a designated parking spot. Very nice and convenient. Also breakfast is $15 a person extra. The pool was just down the street at a country club and was wonderful.

Wonderful, AS ALWAYS!

We always love staying at the Inn at Ion. Everyone is so friendly. The breakfast is very tasty and the rooms comfortable and very attractive. For the price and the location, you cannot beat it. I highly recommend staying there!
