Recent guest reviews

We were delighted to find the Pinckney to be just as special as it was advertised to be. The staff was excellent and friendly. Our room was spacious, recently updated, and the king bed was super comfortable. The walk-in shower was easy to use and the shower head was great. The location can’t be beat for walking around historic Charleston. We enjoyed the numerous art galleries, shopping, and restaurants. Hanks, one of the best seafood restaurants, was right next door. The breakfast was very special with high quality fruit, pastries, quiches, biscuits, jams, juice, and coffee. We took advantage of the 4:00 wine and cheese and met many interesting travelers.

I loved the central location and the renovations. Particularly liked the terrace on the roof - the afternoon drinks and snacks and the breakfasts in the morning.

Close to everything in the market and east bay area. Clean, historic and very comfortable.

Nice hotel in the heart of downtown Charleston. They are in the middle of renovation during our stay but overall we were satisfied and recommend staying at this charming hotel.

This hotel was very charming and I would definitely go back! The staff was great. The breakfast and wine and cheese happy hour was a wonderful bonus and our room was very lovely! The location was ideal. We never used our car. The history of the hotel was very cool as well!

Fantastic experience in the heart of everything in Charleston!

Nice hotel, great location, very friendly staf, nice amentities

our room, queen size bed was tiny. Only wide enough to accommodate bed. we had to take turns getting dressed because the space was so cramped. Tiny window above bed at ceiling. Tiny window looking out to hallway.

It was a really a marvelous hotel. The only thing l would have to tell people is the petite queen suite is very very small.

Haunted... so much noise at night. Good location. Loved the breakfast at the terrace. Yum

Everything is great - location, service, nice rooms. Only real issue is that it is right next to a restaurant and public parking area and every morning at 5:30am, we were woken up by a trash or street cleaning truck that pulls up right next to our room for a minute or two and is very loud.

The bed, sheets, towels were high quality. The lobby/check in is across the street from the hotel rooms. If you want hot water/coffee you have to go there to get it.

We enjoyed being right in the heart of Charleston.

Old but very clean hotel- for price it was great for one night. Morning breakfast on terrace was good. Only issue was noise level, our room was on street side and we could hear everything early morning!

Short stay, but very pleasant. Room temp was a bit of an issue.

Very quaint. We found the place warm and inviting. Morning breakfast on the terrace was picturesque. Food was good but not great. We would come back.

The staff could not have been more helpful or more professional. The location is perfect for seeing things in the historic district. The continental breakfast was also very good. the only two negatives are noise issues from outside and with the ventilation unit but that's part of staying in a historic structure.

We only stayed for 1 night, but walkable to lots of restaurants and shops. The staff was very helpful, and free cookies in the lobby!

Thank you for booking with the Andrew Pinckney Inn. Please keep in mind that we do have many other room types to chose from which are most spacious with exterior views onto street. The Petite Queen which you booked is described accurately on the booking site. The rate is economically priced compared to the market. We hope that you will keep us in mind for a future visit and enjoy one of our many spacious options.
