Good old southern hospitatlity is alive and wellPosted Feb 28, 2015
Pros: In addition to the staff, this inn is a historic gem. Great to stay in a place with such gentle care applied to the structure.
Cons: The upstairs breakfast room can be a bit drafty and cool in the morning during the cooler winter months.
Location: This inn is at a perfect location; all the sightseeing spots are within easy walking distance and of course Charleston is flat as flat can be.
It's been said before that a smile goes a long way; the staff at the Andrew Pinckney Inn understand that and seem to do it naturally. A very friendly bunch, not just the front desk attendant and concierge but the tradespeople on-site, the breakfast room attendant and the room staff. Like most trips, the inn/hotel is a refuge at the end of a long day of touring. The folks at the Pinckney are a welcome sight.

Nice hotel in historic buildingPosted Feb 19, 2015
Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and cozy, and it was central to what we wanted to see and do in Charleston.
Location: Easy walking distance to numerous restaurants and shops. Close to Meeting Street and the City Market.
Nice hotel. Close to many restaurants and shops in Charleston and very centrally located. The rooms were clean and very nice, but a little on the small size for what you would usually find in a hotel. However, we understood prior to booking that most of the rooms were in a historic building and so we expected the rooms to be smaller than the average hotel room. We still had plenty of room for our luggage and to move around. The breakfast was very good. Fresh fruit, pastries, biscuits and gravy, and mini quiches (DELICIOUS) just to name a few items. A cold front had moved in so unfortunately we were not able to enjoy the rooftop view as much since plastic curtains had been installed as well as heaters to keep guests warm. We opted for valet parking so that we would not have to drive around in search of a parking space and the staff allowed us to leave our car with them even after checkout since we had a few more things we wanted to see and do before leaving. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Phenomenal stayPosted Feb 17, 2015
From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I had a splendid experience. The first person I met was Sandy who checked us in. What a lovely gentleman with a welcoming personality. We were in a king suite that was perfect. We felt right at home and I really didn't want to leave. Bedding was very comfortable. The room was very warm and inviting. The area of the hotel was so convenient to everything - shopping and dining around the Charleston Market, King Street, Meeting Street - everything. I felt like the hotel was situated right in the middle of downtown as it was so easy to walk north and south quickly. We didn't have to take public transportation or taxis anywhere. The gentleman at the front desk in the evening was great at suggesting running routes. My husband and I took a nice run to the Rayenal Bridge which was supposed to be 1.5 miles from the hotel but it was such a great route we ended up running across the bridge and back. There is a supermarket 3 blocks away (Harris Teeter) that is open 24 hours. The complimentary breakfast and wifi were great additions to our stay. Although we didn't use it, the hotel offers day passes to Eco Fitness gym nearby if you need a fitness facility. Every staffer we encountered was polite, helpful and always smiling. It was my first visit to Charleston and when I visit again, I'm definitely staying at the Andrew Pinckney Inn.

Amazing Gem in Historic Charleston.Posted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: Decor, small size and the demeanour of the staff.
Cons: Tub was slightly dirty; otherwise, nothing!
Location: Right near the Market, East Bay and a 15 minute walk to Upper King/King Street (Food). About a 10-15 minute walk to the battery and waterfront gardens
Great hotel check-in. Valet parking is very reasonable considering how expensive parking is in charleston. Having lived there for years, $20 to park and not worry about it is a pittance. Located near the great areas of charleston such as the Market & East Bay with fine-dining and drinks and beautiful historic houses. Just walking from there towards King street down any side streets (Queen, Pickney) will give you amazing views of houses and old charleston. You are 15 minutes walking to upper king, where again you'll find great food and entertainment. About 15-20 minutes walking to the battery, where you'll find replica/period artillery from the Civil War and great views of the harbour looking out to Ft. Sumpter, Castle Pinckney, Morris island and Sullivans Island. The room was amazing as we received a free upgrade to their Cotesworth Suite. Plush furniture and soft bed, with jetted tube and very nice robes, towels and toiletries. An excellent hotel for the price (easily could be twice as expensive!). Worth a stop if you ever get the chance.

Great location, good mi-range local InnPosted Feb 13, 2015
Location: Carriage tours, restaurants, shopping
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Valet parking was convenient and drivers were always available. Unfortunately, you don't really have an option to not use the service. Room was comfortable and clean - a little small. Breakfast was nice on the terrace but if the morning was especially cold or windy it was uncomfortable. The days the weather held up, the rooftop eating area was a great space. For the service and location, I think it was a great option. Would definitely stay here again.

Ez living. The staff is excellent. The room was grPosted Feb 3, 2015
Pros: It is just quaint. The horse hooves going by on the cobblestones, rain on the roof, everything old in the heart of the historic district.?
Cons: A less caloric breakfast, and more gluten free options. But it is the south and there was plenty of goods as it is continental.
Location: Everything is an easy stroll. Near the waterfront with a beautiful walk on the bay adjacent to old homes. Simply dazzling.
The Staff was excellent and the was great. I travel 80% of the time. And have been to all major cities in the U.S.. This place is top drawer. If one like old style comfort, ie walk up in my section of the hotel, close to everything yet far enough away that the late night night life was hardly noticeable as opposed to other properties. They made sure everything was perfect. The staff made great food/eatery suggestions and tourist suggestions. Top drawer.

Possibly Decent ValuePosted Feb 1, 2015
Location: The location is adjacent to the back of a restaurant where smokers frequent and it can get a bit noisy at night.
The inn is worn and in need of updates. The layout is very choppy and would not be a good stay if weather is inclement. Reception area is in one building. Many of the rooms sit behind the reception area and others across the street. Our room was decent but would not have been suitable for anyone with any physical impairment. The walk to the room was up two flights of stairs. Once in the room, the walk to the bedroom was up another steep flight of stairs. The staff was nice enough at the front desk but not overly gracious. Wine and cheese reception and breakfast were held in a tiny area on the fourth floor of the building across the street. There is a balcony off the tiny breakfast room. The cover to protect balcony occupants during inclement weather was weathered and not properly secured and kept flapping in the wind. The downstairs lobby of the building across the street from the lobby is nice enough and is a more appropriate place for at least a wine and cheese reception. Breakfast was minimal and when I looked in the kitchenI saw the boxes for the pre-made frozen mini quiches. Bed and bedding were nice enough. Bathroom was tiny with no bathtub and in need of drywall work and painting. I found the stables across the street charming and was delighted to see a horse walked down the street by his handler in the early morning hours.

Walking distance to everything in down-town.Posted Jan 30, 2015
Pros: Breakfast and location.
Cons: Valet should help you load and unload your luggage. Its hard to tip someone who is just pulling around your car and then watches you load your bags.
I really enjoyed my stay here. The rooms where really nice you kind of get the old Charleston feel with the updated look. It was close to everything but not on one of the main streets, so traffic was quite. They have a great buffet style breakfast and wine hour from 4:00-5:00 that includes snacks. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely stay at this place again.
