The Palmetto House Inn

The Palmetto House Inn is located in the award winning Ion community located only 7 minutes from Charleston's downtown Historic District and 10 minutes from the beaches of Isle of Palms and Sullivans Island. We are a small Boutique Inn with only 4 suites all of which have King beds and full kitchens. Although our architecture is Historic Charleston our building was constructed in 2016 so we feature all the best of modern amenities with historic charm. Our guests also enjoy full membership in the exclusive Ion Tennis Fitness and Swim Club. There are 4 full service restaurants within steps of your front door.

This was a really nice inn in a really beautiful location. It was comfortable and quiet and the kitchenette was a nice bonus. I will stay here again if I visit Charleston.

Would stay again,

Perfect place for a romantic weekend getaway!! -Super friendly, accommodating staff. -Beautiful, quiet neighborhood with lots of quaint shops and restaurant options within walking distance -Downtown was only a quick 10 minute drive -The rooms themselves were more like luxury apartments. Newly furnished and beautifully detailed finishes. We definitely enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to our next stay.

Lovely evening

We were fortunate to be able to have a suite available on short notice. It was wonderful to be able to come back to this comfortable, charming inn after a great dinner. The owner and staff were accommodating and friendly. We would happily return and highly recommend it.

Super cozy, beautiful Inn

We just finished our three night stay at The Palmetto House Inn. Our room was clean and very spacious and the staff was super friendly. We searched for a great place to stay near Charleston and this was the best value while offering the nicest accommodations.

Affordable rest at last!

Having a fully quipped kitchen on site made traveling so much easier for us! They even stock the fridge with your choice of breakfast items. My husband is a swimmer and there were two pools for him to choose from, plus a gym facility. Being just across the bridge from Charleston gave us easy access to the city; without the Charleston hotel price! We will definitely stay here again; very clean and roomy!!!
