Great place to stay

Stayed here for our first time in Charleston, and was a great time. It’s centrally located and the free onsite parking was a great feature. Breakfast was very enjoyable. No complaints, was a fabulous time. I would highly recommend staying there.

Governor's House Inn lived completely up to the reviews. Tracey was helpful before we even arrived by sending walking maps of the City and setting up two tours ahead of time to ensure availability. The accommodations were excellent, the staff all friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious and the coffee, outstanding. Room cleaned very nicely. This central location is ideal for walking everywhere and the history of this Inn makes it even more special as a really cool place to stay. Thank you, all.

The Staff were attentive to our needs and Alejandro did an Awesome job with breakfast and scheduling private carriage ride!! Price was in line with the hotels in the historic district and the history of this Inn fascinating! Look forward to our next trip to Charleston and The Govenors Inn!!!

As a international boutique hotel consultant and expert, I am none less than a hotel snob. I see some bad reviews on here and the truth is, no property pleases everyone. In fact, I didn’t even read the reviews before booking. I’ve been to Charleston many times but this particular trip was booked for a special family member who’s had a tough year. Picking the right place took some time and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the result. The kindness and attention shown to my family by lovely General Manager, “Q”, was unparalleled and why this property consistently is ranked among the very best in Charleston and the country as whole. The Jefferson Suite was well acquainted and cozy. Private enough to kick back and still participate in the happy hour etc. Speaking of happy “hour”, not many boutique hotels will serve wine for more than an hour as pointed out in recent reviews. If you want more wine, walk to the bar :) Breakfast was brought to the room each morning. It’s also common for properties to serve coffee only and hour or so before breakfast and then during, so no reason to complain there either. In terms of location, everyone should do research and understand where you’re staying before hand. The walkability in the historic district was great (Minero, Charleston Grill, etc) and like with anyone historic property, there are always imperfections and improvements are ongoing and sometimes different to schedule when you have a consistently high occupancy like GHI. All in all, we could have not asked for a better experience. Kim, “Q” and staff went above and beyond to meet and exceed needs and expectations. If you’re seeking charm, good ole southern love mixed with luxury, look no further. We will return and we will recommend to anyone looking for a classic taste of Charleston. Thank you 🙏🏻

Jefferson Suite Vacation

Location could not be any better. Easy walk to most sites and restaurants. Of course, no hurricane weather helped a great deal. The room was fantastic and very comfortable. Excellent a/c and heat. We really loved the period furniture and preservation of the house. We will be returning to the Governor's House Inn soon.
