Merhaven Bed No Breakfast
Ranked #25 of 39 Charleston B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 August 2013

A lovely and charming "B no B" in charleston. By admission they do not serve breakfast, but this is a plus instead of a minus in the experience column. We got out every morning to explore the neighborhoods, find quaint coffee shops and delicious pastries. The rooms are clean and comfortable and feels more like staying with family than a commercial hotel. The owners are quiet and courteous but most likely you will never see them unless it is out in the amazing patio.

We have stayed here many times over the past 5-7 years and it's always a great experience for my wife, our two boys and myself. Very clean, quiet room amenities and an awesome
outdoor area that is very private with bamboo, plants, fountains, etc. Each room also gets their own parking spot- sweet. It is very convenient to the downtown area by walking, biking or car. The battery is a nice walking distance and you can see all the beautiful homes, the open water and take a stroll the park. I would recommend anyone to stay here. Charleston is a great city to visit and Merhaven is the perfect place to stay to enjoy a great weekend or an entire week with so much to do and so close to everything the city has to offer.

Room Tip: No pool, but Awesome Fountain in side yard. Great place to relax, read a book or listen to music!

I've stayed there numerous times and the hosts are friendly, helpful and really interesting. It's a quiet and beautiful place to stay and the owners make you feel special. I highly recommend it. Herb Walters

Room Tip: Don't have one. Ask the owners. They'll be honest.

My daughter and I stayed here for several days and really had a lovely experience. The comfortable room made us feel at home. The owners were very hospitable and helped us plan interesting outings. We appreciated the off street parking and it made it very easy to unload our suitcases into the room. There is easy walking access to the city. I would stay here again!

If you want an affordable place to stay and want to be on your own, this is a great choice. Sometimes sitting with strangers for breakfast can be fun and sometimes it can be off-putting when all you want to do is have breakfast and be a tourist. Because there's no breakfast served the inn is reasonably priced, the rooms are charming if not luxurious, the location is an easy walk to downtown (and there are loads of places for coffee and breakfast on the walk), the gardens around the house are beautiful, and our stay was pleasant and hassle-free. There is only one bathroom for the two rooms, but that's better than a lot of bed and breakfasts, and it never became an issue for us. Solid recommendation.

My husband and I stayed at Merhaven on a recent trip to Charleston. We really liked a having a quiet, neighborly place to stay. Ayal is a perfect host - helpful and friendly. The accommodations were clean and comfortable, and the location is quite convenient for walks around town. The house is charming with a nice, quiet yard for relaxing. Price is quite reasonable.

Horrendous experience. My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights and it was miserable. First off, the owners did not clean the room once and the (shared) bathroom was flithy. Had to call just to get it cleaned at all. Place is very overpriced, paid over $100 a night to stay in what is more simular to a hostel than a bed and breakfast. Walls are thin, the owner yelled at us for watching The Office at night...banged on our door and left a passive aggressive note. Overall, nightmare of a stay. PS-this place isn't even a licensed bed and breakfast....should be forced to change their name as it's clearly misleading.
