My fiancé and I booked this bnb based on the great reviews and the fact that it's "haunted" ( we love that kind of stuff) we pulled up to this gorgeous old, charming home and were greated by the very friendly staff, I thought the place was great until they showed us our room. The room itself was very beautiful;... More

We stayed for 3 nights in the Carriage House (room 1). The room is very pretty (stone interior walls) and had a comfortable bed. We complained about a musty smell and they brought in a dehumidifier which took care of the problem, which is a result of the stone walls absorbing humidity from the air. This is the only reason...

The 1837 B&B is overpriced compared to other accommodations in the area. The interior is decorated with some period furniture. We stayed in Room 301 on the third floor and found it comfortable with a small bathroom and a period claw tub converted over with a shower. The service was very good. Everyone was very accommodating. Breakfast was just OK,... More

Nice B&B in Charleston, S.C. within walking distance to historic area with lots of shopping and restaurants. My room was very quaint with a comfortable bed and nice shower. Breakfast was good, but not something everyone would enjoy and a little on the sparse side.This B&B has parking, however, it's very cramped. Overall I would recommend 1837 Bed and Breakfast.

My friend and I stayed here in early November. This is a charming B&B within walking distance (less than 1 mile) of historic downtown. It was an easy walk and we felt safe walking to/from downtown after dinner. Our room (201), was on the second floor which is accessed from an outdoor staircase. It was exceptionally clean and comfortable with... More

A delightful Old Charleston B&B within easy walking distance of all the main central attractions. Pretty rooms and little noise to disturb a restful sleep. The innovative and enthusiastically prepared home-cooked breakfasts are a great way to start the day, overall a very enjoyable stay.
