We arrived with such anticipation of a few great days in Charleston, this Inn had been highly recommended to me. When we walked in the door, it was beautiful, but the heat inside was unbearable. The poor guys at the check in were sweating as we were. I asked about the A/C and was told it's a very old inn and it's not real good. It was in the 90's outside but I never expected it to almost be that in all the common areas. Our room was decorated beautifully but extremely small. Especially for the price. Our room A/C worked good along with the ceiling fan. Bathroom very large but definitely needed some updating. The 1st morning my husband showered and went to pick up breakfast and some coffee for us. When he got back, he was soaked from sweat. He said several other people complained about the breakfast areas being hot, but nothing was done. We went to go to the evening reception and it was the same. Just getting a glass of wine made us break into a sweat. We ended up going to the rooftop bar for a drink to be able to get a breeze to cool down. We didn't even attempt to go back for the cookie reception as the hotel was still hot. We went straight to our room. The next morning I asked if they had any fans at the breakfast area, and we were seated by a portable cooler. It helped make it tolerable, but I could see other guests sweating. Needless to say, the only time we spent at the inn, was in our room. The rooms were the only cool places. I would definitely not recommend staying here in the summer. Other old buildings didn't seem to have this problem. My sister stayed here in winter and loved it. If you're planning on visiting in summer definitely reconsider stay here.
