Excellent Service
Excellent from start to finish! Margo greeted us and explained every detail of the room/service. Wow, thru have tea and appetizers, sherry, brandy, and port for the evening! Yum... excellent fresh breakfast prepared for you! Comfortable room! Great location on Broad street so walking every where easy. We stayed in the back of the courtyard so quiet. Parking outside gate for 14.00 daily.

Very Nice 3rd Anniversary trip
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the John Rutledge Inn. Our favorite part was in room breakfast that offered us amazing food and lots of choices. The room and bathroom were very clean and well lit. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of space to walk around in the room.

Poor 2.0
Horrible Stay - Avoid this place
Much of the staff were rude, inappropriate, and truly unhelpful. Gay couples are not treated well. Unprofessional behavior on the part of staff, including management, ruined what should have been a nice short getaway. I would add more detail, but keeps rejecting reviews with specifics.

A Genuinely Historic Charleston Experience
Everything about The John Rutledge was very well done. We were even given an upgrade to a beautiful 2nd floor room in the main house. The house itself was carefully appointed in period furnishings, though thankfully the seated was contemporary & comfortable. Our only criticism was with the quality of breakfast, though pretty well prepared & mostly basic fare with not very "memorable" daily specials, and despite designating items + time, etc. the night before, it arrived often not fresh from the kitchen, entree items not exceedingly freshly prepared with several other side items sealed in plastic wrap. All ordered items arriving at the same time.
