Overall this was a very nice place. The room was lovely and it was great to have a porch to sit on. The negative is that the rooms are not soundproofed. You hear everything from the hallways and other rooms. We stayed there for business, and made a call at 9:30 am , we walked out of our room to a person in the room next door screaming and cursing at us that we woke her up and how rude we were and that we should go outside to make calls. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone that needs to conduct business from their room or has children that could make noises.
Stayed here to get a couple days away from the grind. I sure picked the right spot. The room we had was excellent, clean and good sized. We were able to enjoy the grounds, which are beautiful, with the oak trees and the tidal creek. Breakfast was great, held us way over lunch time. I would recommend this to anyone. We stayed in the Indigo room. Beautiful poster bed and claw foot tub.
We loved our stay here...far enough away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to enjoy historic Charleston. The hosts were friendly and attentive and the breakfast was great. The only downside was how dark our room was. The bathroom was so dark it made applying makeup a guessing game each day and although the small clawfoot tub was quaint, it was a little scary getting in and out as there was nothing to hold onto. Other than that, the room was lovely, the bed very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay. We would stay here again if in the area, we would just probably book a different room than the indigo.
This is a gorgeous setting outside the hustle and bustle of Charleston. The owners were wonderful and we had a very comfortable stay. The only downside is the room we stayed in (the Indigo) was lovely, but so dark, with little lighting. It was very difficult to read in the room or to put on makeup. Also, the shower in the clawfoot tub left a lot to be desired. The bed was wonderful, and the place was beautiful, and we would return here in a heartbeat, but we would probably try a different room for better lighting.
We have stayed at the Inn at Ion twice over the past two years, and both visits were wonderful. The rooms are lovely and very clean, and the views from the rocking chairs on our porch were beautiful. The Inn is less than 0.25 miles away from an amazing coffee shop in Mt Pleasant - Collective Coffee. After walking through the lovely Ion Community in the mornings, which includes stunning nature trails along the marshland, we walked over to get a fantastic coffee and breakfast/brunch at Collective Coffee. Since Ion is close to the bridge over to Charleston, we had easy access to both downtown Charleston in addition to Mt. Pleasant and Sullivan's Island. We look forward to our next stay!
My husband and I enjoyed two nights here and the location was fantastic, just a few blocks from all the old Charleston attractions. The staff was quick to attend to any needs or requests. It's a lovely old mansion! We had a great time at the daily tea/wine hour getting to know the other guests. Breakfast was pretty basic during our stay, but tasty and plentiful. The house is very clean, but the outside side porch was too dusty for me to want to sit out there, which was sad to me because the rocking chairs were very inviting!
My husband and I had a fantastic time at the Governor's House. It's a beautiful house with a perfect location in Charleston. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. I highly recommend this B and B.
I had wanted to stay at this inn for a long time. Usually when we go to Charleston its for business and we stay in the historic district. However, certain times of year it is more expensive than other times. Getting a room for over $300 a night makes no sense unless its a special occasion. This last trip was during a peak season, the Ion Inn had rooms available, so we gave it a try. I can honestly say that this is where I will be staying from now on when visiting Charleston. Mt. Pleasant is a really nice area with plenty of good restaurants, and about 10 minutes over the bridge your in Charleston. The Inn at Ion is part of a beautiful quaint village. That we enjoyed walking around in. The Inn itself is equally as beautiful and quaint. We had a private parking space. The room was large and well decorated. After an exhausting day we especially liked the porch attached to our room with rocking chairs for relaxing. Service and staff were exceptional. There is a new Italian restaurant on site that we visited for a complimentary glass of wine and appetizer that the Inn offered since they no longer offer a complimentary breakfast with the room. We had a large lunch before checking in so we didn't do dinner. However, I definitely plan to on our next visit. Their menu sounded wonderful. This is a hidden gem just over the bridge from Charleston in the quiet Ion village of Mt. Pleasant. Worth checking out!
Very disappointed that breakfast was not on site especially with no appropriate restaurants nearby.......while a delightful place to stay, even having fruit, hot water /coffee and protein bars would have improved my stay.
After a long week of touring the east coast, our last stop for three nights was the Plantation Oaks Inn in Mt. Pleasant, SC. We could not have chosen a better spot to unwind, relax and soak in the beautiful scenery. A long dock to us out to the tidal waters and the peacefulness was awesome! Steven Walterhouse is the epitome of a gracious innkeeper and his breakfasts were heaven! The interior is furnished beautifully and the grounds are serene. We wished we could have stayed much longer! Do not miss this B & B when you visit Charleston. After years of staying in bed and breakfasts, this one ranks at the top!!! Carole R.
We enjoyed our stay. Very nice room with a great balcony over the street. Our visit got cut short by the hurricane, but the hotel refunded the extra day. Vouchers for appetizers / drinks at two local joints is a very nice touch, much appreciated. Thanks, we will be back!
Originally I booked it as a B&B but they have discontinued breakfast. I would not call this a B&B. It is a hotel run inn with sporadic interaction. The room was roomy, well maintained and clean. It was quiet and a good location to Charleston if you'd prefer to stay out of town. People were friendly and the appetizer/drink coupons were a nice touch. Overall I would stay here again even though I prefer a true B&B. Also, having an assigned parking spot was great.
Everything was wonderful! Super clean, super cute, super comfortable! Plenty of places to lounge around, and lots of reading material including things with the history/things to do in Charleston. The views in the back of the marsh and trees are amazing, breakfast was amazing, and the owner Steve (didn't get a chance to meet his wife) was very friendly. Even gave us discount tickets to something in Charleston. We'd definitely stay here again!
The food at the restaurant was not "Charleston" quality. The Inn use to have a fantastic breakfast, but now has nothing in the morning. Don't know how you can call it a bed and breakfast without breakfast. Otherwise it is the "best" place to stay in Charleston for quite, restful stay within a beautiful community.
My husband and I along with another couple recently stayed at the Inn and this would be our home base for our three day tour of Charlestown. Great choice : ). The town or Mt. Pleasant is just off Rt. 17 and a fifteen minute drive to Charlestown. There are two nice restaurants, swimming pools, tennis courts and a fitness center at the Inn that we also enjoyed during our stay. Bottom line, we will return to this great little Inn on our next visit to Charlestown.
This B&B was charming. I felt like I had stepped back in time and was living in the movie The Notebook. The service was great and the breakfast was excellent. The staff was both friendly and informative. The location was excellent and very convenient to enjoy the best of the South.
I was reluctant to stay just outside of Charleston rather in town itself but I am delighted that I gave this beautiful inn a try! It is located within minutes of Charleston across the Ravenel Bridge. The room was gorgeous, the staff attentive and well mannered and the restaurant a great surprise. My dinner at the Italian restaurant at the inn was unexpectedly delicious and frequented by locals; always a good sign.
A lovely venue with low country view and pier and plenty of sitting areas inside and out. Each breakfast was delicious and served in a windowed room and tables for two. The owners made us feel at home and very welcome. The screened porch facing the water was delightful.
We had a wonderful stay at this cozy inn. Steve graciously accommodated for our late arrival time, and in the morning treated us to a delicious breakfast of baked omelette, waffles and fruit. We also enjoyed talking to him and learning about the area. The back of the house faces a lovely yard that opens up to a green marshy creek, a view you can enjoy while eating breakfast. In all this was an excellent start to our trip in Charleston!
The location was great! Because it was a Bed & Breakfast and previous experiences, I was expecting breakfast. Instead of breakfast we did receive vouchers to two locate restaurants for appetizers or drinks. It worked out well. Really enjoyed the porch and the comfortable bed.
We stayed at the Inn for one night while moving out so. Into college. The room was clean and nicely decorated . The porch does need some attention , as There is a bees nest and it was in need of washing. Other than that minor issue, it was perfect !
