The Reddit in

My experience was unsatisfactory I went to this in expecting a little bit more in the way of catering to our needs because I was paying more for the room if I would have stayed in just a regular Hotel the red house did not provide an early morning breakfast 4 people who were going to get their recruits they did not provide any dinner or room service there is no small refrigerator in your room there is no coffee in your room there is no way to warm up a baby's bottle if needed I had one employee that was very understanding about the baby's bottle and was very helpful so far the people that I have spoken with have not been very polite and they do not want to help with the problems that have occurred I booked a two bed room to accommodate 4 people when I booked it through Travelocity everyone should have been paid for two queen beds only accommodate one person per bed really? I am very unhappy with everything that went on in my stay the first night I woke up to having a bug crawling on my cheek and the next morning I seen a guy with bug spray and I told him he needed to spray the room he just smiled at me although I did not see any other bugs that was not pleasant to wake up to in the middle of the night other than that I do not recommend this hotel it is not worth the money whether you are there for a Lover's weekend or other business I would not spend the money here very poor customer service.

Comment from Hotel Management

Hello. Thank you for your feedback. We are a little baffled at your comments. Any research on our property would have given you the amenities list. We are a bed and breakfast. We do not serve dinner, room service, accommodate breakfast earlier than the times we have listed, nor do we advertise we do. As for the charges, AGAIN, if you would have looked at the rules and regulations under Travelocity, our property lists all the extra charges. It seems your unsatisfactory experience is due to your lack of research and knowledhe about the place you booked. Perhaps staying at a hotel or motel is a better fit.

Beautiful historic home

Loved staying at the Rhet House. It has friendly staff, large covered porch and elegant common areas.

Five star historical B&B.

Everything is within walking distance of the Inn. The horse-drawn carriage ride of the historical district is a must. Hike the Pinckney Island bird sanctuary. Highly recommend dinner at the Old Bull Tavern.

fabulous three days

Fantastic customer service and focus given to by all the people, Great customer focus and care for the people who stayed at the Inn. Jo was great and showed customer service and focus. Her focus was beyond what we would ever expect. Breakfast and desserts were great and the rooms were from the past Southern living. Just a great place to visit.
