Our deluxe room had only one comfortable sitting location. There were two or three straight chairs which are only a little better than standing. They could be tossed out. The room needs a small sofa for two or a second comfortable chair with upholstered seat and back. The one comfortable chair had a seat with the attaching screws missing. No, sitting upright with pillows on the the bed is not an adequate substitute for a comfortable chair.

Right from the get go the staff were so friendly! Upon checking in, they gave us a map with a recommended walk to do around the city which was great because this was our first time visiting Charleston! The room was very clean and cozy, and the breakfast was great. The inn was located in the perfect spot, within walking distance to everything but still very quiet. I cannot recommend this place enough!

The staff was so helpful and friendly. We were surprised with the breakfast buffet: bacon, boiled eggs, grits, lots of fruit and much more. The location is perfect for walking downtown or to the market.
