The Jasmine House Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls
Historic Downtown, Charleston, South Carolina

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Housed in a beautifully restored mansion in the heart of Charleston’s Historic Downtown
  • Large rooms have 15-foot ceilings and an overall upscale B&B feel
  • Free Wi-Fi, breakfast and afternoon hors d’oeuvres
  • Lovely, tranquil courtyard with an ornate fountain and lots of plants
  • Each room has its own character; some rooms have a fireplace

Cons

  • Fee for parking
  • Decor in some rooms may feel more stuffy or outdated than others

Bottom Line

Housed in a beautifully renovated mansion dating to 1843, the Jasmine House Inn has all the charm of a B&B and the comfort of an upscale hotel, plus a central location in downtown Charleston. It has 12 large rooms with hardwood floors, 15-foot ceilings, flat-screen TVs and unique decor that might be a bit too much for some (think matching bedspreads and drapes, patterned rugs, and flowal wallpaper). There are a bunch of great freebies, including a continental breakfast, Wi-Fi and evening hors d’oeuvres -- but you’ll have to pay for parking.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On a quiet street in the heart of Downtown Charleston

Jasmine House Inn is located on a quiet street, half a block from Meeting Street, one of the main thoroughfares in Charleston’s Historic District. It is four blocks south of Marion Square, a six-acre park, and less than a three-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.

One of the most coveted addresses in the South, this area (known as "Slightly North of Broad") has some of the most glamorous houses in South Carolina, and those who live there are nicknamed "SNOBs" for their chic-chic neighborhoods. It is also home to high-end shops, galleries, and restaurants along King Street, as well as the College of Charleston, which means there is a lively nightlife scene.

  • 20-minute drive to Charleston International Airport
  • 3-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
  • 12-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
  • 12-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

 Bottom Line

Housed in a beautifully renovated mansion dating to 1843, the Jasmine House Inn has all the charm of a B&B and the comfort of an upscale hotel, plus a central location in downtown Charleston. It has 12 large rooms with hardwood floors, 15-foot ceilings, flat-screen TVs and unique decor that might be a bit too much for some (think matching bedspreads and drapes, patterned rugs, and flowal wallpaper).
