A Great Stay!

This place was great! This was our first Bed & Breakfast experience and it did not dissapoint! I love that it was centrally located and very close to all the sights we wanted to see and the places we wanted to visit. The room we stayed in was very nice and comfortable, with all the usual hotel amenities (including a hair dryer—I couldn’t find this information on-line, brought my own, and shouldn’t have). The bed was amazing and I actually liked it more than my bed at home! I loved the decor / theme and found it much more pleasant than a hotel room. The staff were all extremely helpful and very kind. The parking wasn’t an issue, as there was a lot just across the street and the lot attendants were also very helpful and kind. The only downside was that it’s between two carriage companies, so walking past them, the smell can be off-putting; however, I really enjoy seeing the horses up close and that they’re very well taken care of and you cannot smell any odor one at the B&B.

Quaint B&B, Good location, disappointing breakfast

The Bed and Breakfast was quaint and clean. It was close to the center of downtown Charleston and easy to walk to everything. We were disappointed by the breakfast... typically a bed and breakfast serves a hot breakfast but all that was offered was storebought bagels, cereal, yogurt, instant grits/oatmeal and fruit. Because of the breakfast, I don’t think we would stay there again considering the nightly rate. We thought we were paying for a true bed and breakfast, but it felt more like a nice historic hotel with standard hotel amenities. So, our stay was good but not great.

Lovely B&B in Charleston

Palmer's Pinckney Inn is in a great location of historic Charleston. We could walk anywhere in the city. Rooms were beautifully decorated and comfortable. The only problem is not their fault - the trash truck collects trash between 5:30-6:00 each morning and is VERY loud. Wine and cheese is no longer offered in the afternoon.

Delightful hospitality in Charleston’s historic downtown

Imagine a lovely, dog-friendly inn with a very sweet, helpful and competent staff right in downtown Charleston - that’s Pinckney’s. We had a great stay and can’t wait to go back.

Every part of our visit was marvelous. The facilities, staff, location, and ambiance were first rate. We will be back - often!

Ground floor room very noisy

3.2 on March 20, 2018

I was somewhat disappointed with the Palmer's Pinckney Inn. It was not made clear on booking that the Equestrian room was ground floor and positioned right on the mail road. Not only did this mean that we had the blinds closed all the time for privacy from passers-by, but also that it was incredibly noisy. The garbage collection vans started at 4am, then the stable next door had the Farrier in shoeing their horses. Very little sleep was possible. The room was also not as quaint and authentic as expected- frankly we have more original features such as coving in our own house. Bathroom was small and cold with a plug in fan heater. On arriving at 1pm, not being able to check in until 3.30pm it would have been nice to be told that Charleston had a Food Fair Event going on- which we did not discover until the next day. No information provided about things like boat trips, they seemed keener to tell you about their personal lives than anything helpful to experiencing Charleston.

Nice Charleston option

Room was very nice. Enjoyed our stay. Great location with easy walking access to historic Charleston. Limited outlets since it's an older building -- power strip would be nice addition to amenities. Parking convenient across the street but confusing when attendant not on duty.

This place is awesome. Everything was perfect. I work i the hotel/resort business and this is the best experience i have ever had. I will definitely be back and have told many people about our experience. All of the staff was so friendly, helpful, and professional with out being stuffy.
