“Welcoming, Charming B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2012

My husband and I had a great experience at this beautiful B&B. Excellent service from a friendly and helpful staff. We needed to have a late checkout and they happily accommodated us. We used their bikes-which are free!-to ride all over Charleston, a great and fun way to see the city! Comfortable beds and rooms. Delicious breakfasts! Loved the late afternoon/evening wine and cheese!

We had a great stay at the Cannonboro, each breakfast was better than the last and all were outstanding. The parking is a little tight if you're driving an SUV but this is an older part of town and parking was not an issue in 1853! The room was (#6) large and comfortable. The staff at the Cannonboro treated us like part of the family. The best of the "Old South" is alive and well at the Cannonboro.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are the most quiet!

My husband and I recently stayed at this lovely B and B in room 4. We were initially assigned a front room on the first floor that was too noisy for us and we immediately switched to room four upstairs. This is a very large room with a king bed and another twin bed that could easily accommodate three people. The breakfasts were wonderful and we enjoyed afternoon wine and snacks on the porch in the late afternoon. My advice is to request a second floor room for a quietness.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are quieter.

Horrenously Bad food and service. Decor was AWFUL. Decorator should be hung. This place is equivalent to a Motel 8. Bike rental policy is unexpectedly childish.

ashleyinnbb, Owner at Cannonboro Inn, responded to this review, 18 May 2012
The guest who posted this review had an axe to grind as he requested to keep our bicycles out past our return time policy and called me at home. I explained to him that the bicycles did not have lights on them and for reasons of safety and to have a consistent return policy they needed to be returned by 6:30pm. He was displeased with our policy. Please note that our bicycles are free to our guests. To write such a review (gross distortion about our food, service and decor) because he could not have his way is grossly unfair. Please read other reviews about the Cannonboro Inn to get a true assessment of our inn.

Three friends traveling together - we stayed in Room 4 which had a king bed and a twin, and opened onto a second floor porch. Very large room with a fireplace, small refrigerator, tv, and a sink outside the bathroom. Perfect for the three of us! Nicely decorated. Delicious breakfast, and chocolate fudge in the afternoon! The drawbacks were the VERY narrow parking area to the side of the house, but at least we were off the street. It is a busy street, across from MUSC, but the noise did not bother us at all in our room - never heard a bit of traffic! The inn is about a mile or so from downtown Charleston, but we had no problems driving in or parking.
