Pet Policies

Our love for pets is a time-honored Charleston tradition, so if your dogs want to get in on the fun, simply bring them along. Our pet-friendly accommodations ensure that your furry friends are just as comfortable and cared for as you are. Whether you're taking a walk with your pooch down Broad Street or relaxing in the courtyard, you'll both experience the best of Charleston at the John Rutledge House Inn®. Please note that our pet-friendly rooms are extremely limited, so book your reservation now. A $40 per night fee also applies. Please email our Pet Concierge or call the Inn directly to make a reservation at (855) 986-3513.

Guarantee Policy

Generally, we cannot guarantee any specific room number or location, although we will make an effort to grant requests.


You'll always enjoy our best rate when you book directly with us, either online or by phone. If you find a better rate for the same room for the same dates elsewhere within 24 hours of confirming your reservation, call us. We will match it, guaranteed.

Thank You
