On a store-lined street in the heart of Downtown Charleston
Indigo Inn is located on the corner of tiny Maiden Lane and pretty, store-lined Pinckney Street. It is four blocks south of Marion Square, a six-acre park, and less than a five-minute walk to King Street, one of the busiest shopping and dining areas in the neighborhood.
This charming area looks just how it does in the movies, with colorful, porch-fronted homes, cobblestone streets, and beautiful gardens. Many of the homes date back to the early 1800s, and the area maintains its old-town feel with the city's height restriction ordinance.
This 40-room property is a real B&B, with quaint, spacious rooms overlooking a lovely courtyard, traditional-style decor (dated for some), and no hotel-style amenities. However, it has a few interesting freebies, including Wi-Fi; breakfast; and afternoon cheese, wine, and fruit. Plus, it's situated in a gorgeous location in the heart of Charleston’s Historic Downtown, within walking distance to major tourist attractions. It is not quite luxurious (though it has some nice touches), but it is definitely charming and cozy, and geared toward those who appreciate a B&B experience.
