Charleston's gourmet breakfast place... Guests rave over low-country creations such as Lemon-Poppyseed waffles with Blueberry Sauce, Ham and Egg Crepes with Tarragon Hollandaise, and Croissant French Toast with Orange-Toasted Walnut Sauce. To pamper you even further, we've added afternoon tea with sumptuous home-baked goods and evening sherry. Enjoy our beautiful rooms and complimentary touring bikes to enjoy the city.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was wonderful. Would stay here again. Quiet rooms. Within short walking distance to eating places. Fuel and Hominy Grill. Make sure you go in a small vehicle as parking is very tight.

Why stay at a chain hotel. The ashley was better in many ways.

Beautiful, well maintained, pleasant, able to mingle with guests, owner, and the help, or if you choose, can be more private, great breakfasts with 2 completely different options each morning, good on-location parking, reasonable rates, not in historic district, but better because it is very near historic district yet close to many good restaurants. I'd love to move-in and live there. Owner provided lots of historical insights and recommendations for things to see and do as well as local restaurants that are quite good.

Great place to stay. This is our second stay at the Cannonboro Inn, the sister to the Ashley Inn. When we get back to Charleston, I will make sure to revisit. The breakfast is great along with the very nice staff.

Don't go ,if you want to be in the center of the tourist area .Definately go if you want southern hospitality ,quiet efficient service and decadent breakfasts. 100yards or less north or south will get you a free airconditioned trolley to the visitors center and tourist mayhem. Tea time, with tasty treats was a chance to mingle with other guests and staff in an informal atmosphere . If this innkeeper tells you a restaurant is a tourist trap with a good vista , reasonable salads and poor service , I'm going to believe her from now on . We booked and stayed 3 nights ,we moved to a"modern" facility for a further 2 days and a ..... pool? A decision we came to regret . loved the city ,loved the ashley.

We were last minute guests and Susan made sure we had a comfortable place in the guesthouse! It was wonderful! We ate at Fuel, which was yummy. Loved their guava Mojitos and cucumber cocktails. We were close enough to walk everywhere. I cannot wait to return to the Cannonboro or Ashley Inns. Thanks for making our honeymoon wonderful!

My wife and I have frequented the Ashley Inn and sister B&B, The Cannonboro Inn, several times during the past year and have been pleased that we did after each visit. The staff is excellent and the location of the inns make it easy to explore the city.

The inn is located just one block from MUSC (Medical University of South Carolina) and provided a fine place to stay while my wife had surgery. We spent 6 nights in the "Carriage House" which is a two bedroom apartment attached to the inn. We had our own living room and kitchen facilities, but always ate the sumptious breakfast in the inn. The afternoon wine and cheese was a special touch. The inn provided a very relaxing place for my wife to recuperate from her surgery prior to driving back home. The service from all of the staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
