I find this disguting
The bathroom floor and floor in the shower had hair on them that was clearly not from my husband or I.

Birthday Trip Win!
Charleston is the definition of Southern Hospitality! From checking in to our last day at the inn we had great customer service. I came here to celebrate my mom and I's birthday. We had two mini bottles of champagne and a note from the front desk wishing us a happy birthday. I loved that they offered complimentary coffee and tea in the mornings. In the evening complimentary cookies and hot chocolate. Also they have happy hour with cheese, crackers, and fruit. Great customer service all around with communication.

Very Good8.0
Staff was welcoming and attentive. Original assigned room's bathroom was not clean so they immediately moved me to another room.The room was clean but bathroom fixtures, towel ring and makeup mirror, were not adequately secured to the wall. Hot water tap on sink leaked at the base when used. This hotel could be great with some TLC and attention to detail.The cafe was awesome and location to downtown historic Charleston was convenient..Free parking was a valuable plus.

Wonderful Inn!!
Charleston Inn is definitely where we’ll stay again. Everything about our visit over Christmas was fabulous. The room was particularly tastefully decorated and beds very comfortable with a nice selection of pillows for various sleep preferences. Breakfasts were delicious and the waitstaff were exceptional. The parking was free & convenient and the inn is located within walking or quick driving distances to restaurants, shopping, churches and sightseeing.
