Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • In the heart of Charleston's Historic Downtown neighborhood
  • Quaint, quiet rooms with a cozy B&B decor
  • Flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi
  • Lovely courtyard with a fountain and pretty plantings
  • Free breakfast
  • Free afternoon hors d’oeuvres

Cons

  • No pool, Jacuzzi, or fitness area
  • Most rooms are a bit dark
  • Fee for on-site parking

Bottom Line

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.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

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.

  • 20-minute drive to Charleston International Airport
  • 5-minute walk to King Street, lined with high-end restaurants, art galleries, and shops
  • 5-minute walk to Charleston City Market
  • 5-minute walk to Gibbes Museum of Art
  • 7-minute walk to the College of Charleston
  • 10-minute walk to Marion Square
  • 15-minute walk to the Charleston Museum, the oldest museum in the US
  • 15-minute walk to South Carolina Aquarium
  • 15-minute walk to Aiken-Rhett House, the former governor's home built in 1818
  • 15-minute drive to the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum
  • 15-minute drive to Charles Towne Landing, the birthplace of America
  • 25-minute drive to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens
  • 25-minute drive to Drayton Hall, a beautiful plantation
  • 30-minute drive to Middleton Place, America's oldest landscaped gardens
