Great Location for the Price

2.4 on September 30, 2016

We thought the Inn just needed some "tender loving care" to bring it up to how it is portrayed on line. The outside needs paint and attention. The room was clean enough but more attention to the detail cleaning would be nice. Not really anyplace to "hang out" other than the very narrow porch which was crowded. We probably wouldn't stay there again, but we did enjoy being so close to everything that we wanted to see. It was great to have a place to leave out care. Charleston is beautiful and we were more interested in the city than in the Inn. The price was worth what we got compared to other places we priced. Next visit we will probably upgrade where we stay.

Good value but hard to get information before arriving

It was always a long wait to get any response from Martha and the last question about parking was not answered until we arrived. Jack was great in that he was helpful, answered any questions we had, and helped turn our large vehicle around in the parking area.

Great little place convenient to downtown

We spent the weekend in Charleston and found this inn to be perfect for our needs. Parking is a bit tight but once there, we walked everywhere we needed to go for the weekend. The rooms were perfect. Hostess was very nice and went out of our way to help us. They had a small continental breakfast in the morning. It is only one block away from the straw market so easy to walk everywhere.

Charming stay

This is a very charming place to stay in a great location, walking distance from pretty much anything you want to see in historic Charleston. The rooms were clean and beautifully detailed and the staff was nice and friendly. The only thing that could have made it better was if the breakfast was not make it yourself.

Great Place

Stayed here to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was the perfect spot. Close to shops and restaurants. The room was great and had a great historic feel to it. We enjoyed the fruit offered to us and decided to eat somewhere else for breakfast.

Has charm, but needs upkeep

2.4 on June 18, 2016

Palmer's Pinckney Inn has a lot of charm. It's manager, Martha Beasley, does it all: cleans and prepares the rooms, washes the linens and towels, and sets up the kitchen for breakfast. However, she also manages the "sister" B&B (Palmer House, which is about a mile+ walk) and is not on site all the time. It needs some TLC and upkeep, such as removing old deadbolt locks and repairing the doors and frames where they were. Air conditioning and the electrical systems need to be well. The furnishings are nice.

Like home B&B

We stayed just one night and we really felt like home. There was no staff there, but a lot of notes with indications for us. We had to cook our own breakfast, what felt a bit weird, but appreciated the trust on us. The next morning we met the host when we were leaving who was very kind and apologiced for exceptionally having left us on our own. A sure recommendation for my friends.

Home away from home

My wife and I were extremely satisfied with the Inn and have no complaints. The downtown location was really good and despite the nearness to the stables little noise was heard. We would stay again provided we could obtain a discounted price like this trip as the full price is in our opinion to high for what is on offer.

The service at the Palmer's Pinckney Inn was outstanding. We had a last-minute need come up for printing and scanning and Martha, the manager of both the Inn and the Palmer Home, went out of her way to help us. They were very accommodating in every way. The only downside of our stay was the lack of any continental breakfast at all. Luckily, the Palmer Home offers breakfast for a small fee and there are, of course, many restaurants very nearby. Overall, great location and great service.

Perfectly Delightful

Accommodations are charming with historical character. Innkeepers are personable, warm, and attentive. We appreciated the free off-street parking (although the driveway is a bit of a tight squeeze.) The Inn is in the bustle of downtown situated between two carriage companies (one block from the Historic Charleston City Market). Be sure to enjoy breakfast and/or afternoon wine & cheese at the historic Palmer Home overlooking the Battery.
