Guestbook comments from the owner

Danielle K. brought a male stripper into our very upscale Inn suite against policy. We took the dog out at Midnight(we live on property) and caught her and group throwing a male stripper party. The next day we confronted her by emailing and asking her to stop by our house. We spoke to her and told her we found it offensive and disrespectful, a poor choice on her part and not allowed by policy but we would allow her and group to stay the final day. The conditions were, we were to inspect suite for damage. We arranged to do so when she told us she would be at "spa" and out of suite. We also told her we did not allow free visitor parking, which she continued to let her friends use.

There was more, but the bottom line is Danielle K. from Brooklyn/NYC area who is under age limit of 25 for renting at our inn, is not responsible. As an owner you do not want her to book your place unless you don't care about managing your rules. We have about 1% of our guests who are not good renters. Her mother, Sybil k. sent us a spam/flaming email after I contacted Danielle asking her if she really wanted to post her negative review because I would have to then write what she did. I thought it was pretty vendictive and another bad decision to Break the rules, be disrespectful to the owners and then have the nerve to write a horrible review and give a 1 star rating amidst our 5 star, well earned reviews. Not the kind of person you want to do business with. she never apologized.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO experience and it turned out perfect. When we arrived the owners met us and took the time to show us the details of the room and give a brief overview of the "house rules". They were very nice and personable and were available for questions. The house itself was adorable! Very clean and decorated nicely with authentic mid century furniture and decor. Very easy walking distance to downtown. The only drawback, if i had to be picky, is that with it being 98* and very humid outside, it seems we couldn't get very cool in the house. But as a side note, I keep my own thermostat at 68. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this VRBO. The property was very clean which is extremely important to me. The furnishings were mid century modern and it was decorated very nicely. The location of this property was great and it enabled us to walk to many places of interest. We would definitely try to stay at this VRBO if we came back to visit Charleston or would recommend it to our friends.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived a bit early before check-in and Rick was nice enough to talk to us about the neighborhood and give some suggestions for the weekend. We stayed in the Mod suite and it was perfect for a couple. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was amazing with updated fixtures and a great shower. This location was perfect to walk to all the major tourist destinations or grabbing quick uber rides. We absolutely loved Charleston and hope to visit Rick and the city again soon.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Rick and Glenda were wonderful hosts. They met us on check-in and gave us tips of places to see and great restaurants in the area. Their Inn is centrally located and a short walk to all the sites in Charleston. We stayed in the Mod Suite which is immaculate and beautifully decorated. It has a well-stocked modern kitchen and newly renovated bathroom. We absolutely loved Charleston. We're so pleased that we chose City Centre to stay at while celebrating our 35th anniversary!!! We highly recommend City Centre to anyone visiting Charleston.

Great location beautiful bathroom. Very quaint

  • 4 of 5

Owners were on site and very accommodating. Location is great and can walk almost everywhere. Bathroom and kitchen has been remodeled and are very nice

Bed linens were nice Bed did sag a bit in the middle

Only issue is there is a musty smell . It was explained this is a 200 year old building.

Owner's Response: We were quite surprised Stacy wrote about a mustiness. Within 45 mins of arriving she complained of mustiness and went to check the newly cleaned suite and smelled nothing. I suggested they had the option to go to a hotel as there was nothing to be done but they opted to not do this. I assured them Charleston had hotel rooms available. I also explained that this is the 'lowcountry", we do have humidity and this is a 200+year old house. We checked back with her and she said the smell was gone. I am sure that running the HVAC was a huge factor in recirculating the air. We were very puzzled about the bed assessment. This is the bed that most guests rave about as being ultra comfortable. Some have asked for the brand so they can order one for their own home. Perhaps the center support was dislodged and had Stacy informed us, we would have fixed. It is a very expensive new gel memory foam mattress, top of the line. We will be checking the bed frame during guests turnovers and also ask current guests if there is a problem. There have been several guests since Stacy stayed and we have not heard of a problem. It is our policy to asks guests during their stay if everything is satisfactory. This helps us keep the suites in top shape and avoids the next guests from having a known problem. Some things we cannot fix as reflect person preference. We fix anything fixable. If a guest finds a problem big enough to write on the internet but didn't inform us when we asked, it is unfortunate for us. We do strive to have top quality accomodations and do it for a much lower price-therefore a greater value. We do appreciate the 4 stars.
