This was our second stay at Cannonboro Inn, the last being in March 2013. Our room (#2) was very comfortable with an attached bathroom, sofa, and queen-sized bed. There are several porches to relax on, read, and partake of the offerings for the evening social hour. The indoor common areas, where breakfast is served, are comfortable, historic, and relatively quiet....

The room looked pretty and historic. However, the housekeeping was bad. When we arrived, I always wipe things down. The bathroom floor was black! The toilet was dirty as was the tile and tub. The rooms need to be repainted and wallpapered. There is no vanity to put your things next to the sink. We had another guest turning the...

While we enjoyed our stay with friendly staff and an extremely knowledgeable owner who shared his love for the city with guests during the brief period he was present, for a B&B in a city full of them, there was little special about Cannonboro. We stayed in the suite; very much appreciated the large amount of extra space it provided...

We were excited to be staying in a historic inn in Charlestown, but feel let down with the three day experience. * We called to say we would arrive around 7pm. "No problem, someone is always here until 8pm." We arrived just before 7pm to find 4 sheets of paper with 4 names, including ours taped RTO the front door....

My wife and I stayed one night at the Cannonboro Inn during Presidents' Day weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I liked that you can view photos and details of the individual rooms on the Inn's website, so that you can see exactly what you're getting when booking. We stayed in Room 6, which is on the ground floor and beautifully...

Location is walking distance to town area, very close to Med School and Univ of Charleston. We understood the Inn is in transition with a new owner to take over- rooms definitely need a refresh, there is a not a fine line between quaint and needing repairs- and the Inn is near the repair area- some peeling wallpaper, bath tiling...

Very charming, old-school homey type feel. Perfect for couples. The inn keepers were all very nice and helpful with recommendations around town. We stayed in room 6-cute room however if you like to sleep in you will be woken by other guests walking past your room to breakfast at 8 am every morning, as our room was right next to...

Our stay happened to be during the time Hurricane Matthew hit. The Inn used this as an opportunity to impose fees even after they said they wouldn't. There business ethics are questionable, and I would be concerned about doing a reservation into the future with this Inn.

Our lovely city at our Inns were fortunately spared during the destructive path of Hurricane Matthew. Our Innkeepers and Housekeepers worked around the clock as we did not close business to accommodate our wonderful guests and thankfully traffic back into Charleston was opened just a day after the storm passed the coast. We did cancel the reservations for the time...

We loved this B&B. Very clean and comfortable. The location was ideal for us. The breakfast was delicious and we loved the afternoon snacks and wine.They were so nice to deal with. We will definitely be back! I would like to bring all my girlfriends!

“Unless you are a very deep sleeper pick a room that faces the back or sides of the inn. Bring ear plugs just in case.”
