Country Victorian
Ranked #24 of 39 Charleston B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 June 2013

This is a terrible place that should be closed down. The host is a strange lady who bombards you with rules. Her "breakfast" on a narrow patio could give you a glycemic shock! It is a real $200 per night shocker. It is amazing it is still in business. It has left us with a bad aftertaste about beautiful Charleston that will take a long time to wear out...

Happy with the attention from the hostess and the friendly tourist advice given. Breakfast was personal and very pleasant. The hotel is in an old victorian house which badly needs some renovation and a good coat of paint. The room was large and generally comfortable but a bit musty and covered in old 'antiques' which is ok if that's your thing.

I believe the hostess must be reading these reviews as we had no complaints. Plenty of breakfast and she made a point of asking if we wanted more each day. The place is clean and full of character. Yes, you have to take your shoes off in your room, but it that really so hard? She has a floor rug right at the door for you to stand on as you do this. Easy walking distance to most of the old city and houses.

Very enjoyable old B&B South of Broad in a wonderful old Charleston. The owner, Diane, was very helpful in guiding us to local restaurants and events. Next trip to Charleston we will stay at Country Victorian again.

peeling paint and warped wood, musty mildewy smells, walk to our room through a stinky storage room with a room lock that doesn't work (we jammed a chair under the door knob to seal it), no hot water, dank cramped eating area filled to overflow with old hoarded country knick knacks and $185 + 12% "tax" a night, cash only! we stumbled into this unpleasant location because we waited too late to book a room, and it was, quite honestly, a bit frightening. i am confident that this is an honest review. we are easy-going people, but this was just way too unfair to advertise that this is a welcoming venue. for example upon arrival late in the evening, stuck with no options, i doublechecked with the owner "does the hot water work ok?" and was assured all is well, only to find out late in the evening- luke warm water only.

Room Tip: there are no good rooms here.

After reading some of the earlier reviews, we were pleasantly surprised. Enjoyed the decorations in the room which was very clean. Diane knows the in's and out's of Charlestion. It was a little on the cold side, so we were served breakfast in the dinning room. It was very enjoyable. Would not hesitate to stay here again and you can not beat the location. Staying south of Broad street is the only way to go.

Diane greeted us, showed us our room and gave us all kinds of great tips on what to see, where to walk and the best places to eat. Enjoyed a nice breakfast on the prorch both mornings of our stay. We love antiques and the room was full of them. We visit Charleston a lot and would stay here again. You can't beat the location either.
