Located in the Charleston Market in the center of everything! Palmer's Pinckney Inn is a traditional Charleston single house. There are 5 bedrooms and bathrooms, with King beds and jacuzzi tubs. There is off street parking and great rates!!!

It would appear the Palmer's Inn folks used some spare cash to buy this place, as the afternoon wine & cheese tasting and the "grand" breakfast are both at their main location about a mile away. We checked in on December 30th and went out to dinner - when we got back, the room was a bit chilly, so we turned on the gas fireplace and went to sleep. The temp in the room continued to drop throughout the night and we were unable to locate either a thermostat or a blanket in the room so we just shivered our way through it since the attendant leaves at 5. The next morning, I did finally find a thermostat in the small foyer that connects the two upstairs rooms - set to 52 degrees! When I handed my keys back to the on-site person I mentioned the temp issues and she replied, "Well, it's an old house with poor insulation." Boo! Another caveat: the driveway is extremely narrow and the parking area in the back is quite cramped, so bring the smallest car you can find or use a car service. One great thing about the PPI is the location - you're just a block off the main outdoor markets and within walking distance of a good part of downtown Charleston. I doubt we would stay here again but if you're temperature intolerant and don't care about the breakfast part of a B&B stay you might be OK.

Location could not be beat, just a block from Market street. It's next door to some horse carriage tour barns, so be aware if that will bother you. Equestrian Room was nice but with a few problems; Gas fireplace pilot was out. Lamp in the corner did not work. Blinds over the windows would not rotate closed all the way. For $5, breakfast at their sister inn was a deal with an amazing view. Getting there is a 20 minute walk or short drive away.

Casey was great in recommending places to stay. We loved the location and the b&b was nice and quiet and quaint. We really enjoyed our room and that we had a full kitchen to use. We would definitely stay here again!

A charming inn with beautiful rooms and an incredibly friendly staff. The inn is perfectly located, right around the corner from the Earthling Day Spa and restaurants such as SNOB, High Cotton, and Magnolia. If you like horses, the stable for the carriage horses is next door, but don't worry, the aroma doesn't carry. The staff here is also very laid back and friendly.

A beautiful inn in the heart of the historic district, easy access to the market and fine dining. The hospitality was exceptional. This may be the best value for a B&B in Charleston. We were warmly welcomed and treated like family. Highly recommended!

Loved our stay there! Super convenient to all areas in the Historic District. We parked the car and never got in it again until it was time to leave. Enjoyed meeting Frances Palmer, the owner, and really enjoyed having breakfast at her personal home.

Very easy to get to the main parts of downtown Charleston from this location, clean and pretty rooms....only complaint is how spotty the wi fi is.

Honestly, I can't speak for the continental breakfast they offer because we went out for brunch each day during our stay. The staff was very helpful in providing is with information on where to eat in Charleston and what to do. The Equestrian room was really great..very clean and comfy bed

We stayed one night (would have stayed 2 but no availability). The room was quite nice, although the outside could use some TLC. Great location. We did not take advantage of the $5 breakfast at another Inn nearby. Don't expect to park in the back unless you have a small vehicle, but parking across the street was very convenient.

My husband and I recently stayed at Palmer's Pinckney Inn and had a wonderful stay! The location is fantastic and the staff were very friendly. The best part is we were able to bring our small dog with us. Most places with dog-friendly rooms can be lower quality but this inn offers excellent rooms. We also enjoyed breakfast at the Palmer House on the veranda which is a perk when staying here. I would highly recommend this to anyone! You truly can't beat the price and location. Suzanne C
