Quaint….

Parking had a lot to be desired. Ended up having to pay another 24.00 for parking..


Our first B & B Experience

4.4 on August 17, 2014

We are retired in Columbia, SC . We do not have a lot of money so we like to take short weekend trips just to relax and visit interesting places. One of our favorite places to visit is Charleston, SC. This it the first time we have tried a B & B, and we loved it. The Palmer's Pinckney Inn is delightful and a bargain considering the location. We parked our car in the backyard and walked everywhere we wanted to go for two days. I would highly recommend Palmer's Pinckney Inn to anyone who wants to relax and explore downtown Charleston. We will go back there for sure.


Palmer's Pinckney Inn

4.0 on August 11, 2014

I stayed here because I purchased a Living Social voucher good for 2 nights at the B&B. This was a cute little B&B right in the center of downtown...a block from the market and within walking distance of anywhere else you would want to go - the Aquarium and ferry to Ft. Sumter, the Battery, great restaurants and bars, Meeting St. and King St. for shopping, etc. We stayed in the Charleston Room on the 2nd floor. King size bed and 1 bath with a shower stall. The bed was comfortable and the rooms were clean. The only issue I had was the security of the room...there was a locked atrium outside the guest rooms which seemed pretty secure; however, the locks on our individual room were shotty at best. The door-frame around the strike plate was rotting/splintering away, and it seemed like an intruder would not have to try very hard to get inside. So don't make any enemies while you're here. This shouldn't be hard considering how nice everyone is and how safe the city seemed. I can't really speak for any of the other amenities - we had coffee and breakfast elsewhere every day and were pretty much eating, drinking, and sightseeing during all daylight hours. Breakfast and complimentary wine/cheese at the partner hotel sounded nice, though...we just didn't make it there. The staff was very helpful. Jill, Dawn and another girl in her 20s (sorry I can't remember your name!) all gave great recommendations for transportation, meals, and anything else we needed. I would definitely consider staying here again if I go back to Charleston. I would just hope that the locks are fixed.


Love this place

The ladies there were awesome in helping me in my parking situation and was very polite. Wish I could have spent a whole week there.


Great Location

Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent location. Parking is very tight due to the location. Nice clean room.


Close to market

3.4 on August 10, 2014

We stayed here for a quick weekend trip to Charleston. The location is just a very short walk to the market and shops. The room was very clean, bathroom updated. It is next to a horse barn so be warned that sitting outside you may not smell floral scents! You are welcome to freely go in the kitchen and they have coffee, breakfast snacks and wine at night. The driveway is very, I mean very narrow. If you have a large SUV or truck, it would be very tight to drive thru. We really loved the location and the value so we will be visiting again! I feel so bad for you but we can fight this and we will!


fun staff, great service, wonderful location....perfect

nice for the price...

We had a deal with Living Social, so it was about $100/night with tax, etc. Great location--very central to everything downtown--aside from horse lodging next door (bad odors as I read about on others' reviews). Neat little place, truly Charleston. TIGHT driveway (no exaggeration by others, I now know!)...if it hadn't been for my back-up camera! But, nonetheless, to have parking included is nice. Though they mention going to the Palmer House for a more complete wine & cheese, breakfast, or pool it's quite a hike--almost a mile. (For some reason I thought it was closer!) Once we parked, we weren't about to leave! lol They had plenty of food, wine, etc. so no need to venture out but worth it for a visit to the Palmer/Battery area. Because all the rooms were reached from the outside, it felt a little less like a b&b from my previous experiences. The place was tidy, well-accommodating and nicely decorated for a small Charleston abode. Jill was very personable and helpful! We had an a/c issue which really wasn't resolved while we were there, but they tried! (met the owner with this as well, so they were on it immediately) Definitely glad we had an upstairs back room (Charleston Rice Room) as it can get noisy on the streets (as with any "downtown" setting). I recommended that they invest in some bikes for ease in getting around or just to the Palmer House! Jill was very receptive to that idea. I'd also suggest new towels...a bit worn really...but clean. :) I'd stay here again.


Great Service

We had a great time! The staff was fabulous. They were very friendly and helpful. You can park and not need the car until it's time to leave. The Inn is close to Charleston's downtown, market and harbor, all easy walks.


Can't wait to go back

Went down for my wife's birthday and felt like we "discovered" a hidden gem! Innkeepers were so nice and accommodating and we loved the room. Feel like you are staying with friends in a nice home in the heart of Charleston. We have been going to the area for nearly 30 years and so glad to find a home away from home!! Try it!
