Where to Stay in Charleston, SC- Our Top Picks







From larger hotels, inns and quaint bed and breakfasts, there are many options to stay in Charleston. We recommend:

1837 Bed & Breakfast, 126 Wentworth St.:  I am really enjoying this small nine room bed and breakfast in an 1800’s cotton planter’s home. The owners and staff were exceptional and were so helpful. I felt like I was a guest in their home. The B&B was started in 1984 so they have a great history of welcoming guests. My room upstairs in the main house was really nice and had WiFi and cable TV, yet in a traditionally decorated  room.

Charming Inns of Charleston: They have four small unique Inns that get good reviews and the Circa 1886 restaurant. The inns include the Fulton Lane InnJohn Rutledge House Inn B&B, The Wentworth Mansion.

Two Meeting Street Inn: At the end of Meeting Street, along the Battery, this small inn looked amazing. It was beautifully restored with lovely grounds.
