Reviewed 18 April 2014

We stumbled upon this hotel while returning from vacation. Excellent use of what was probably an ugly old concrete motel from the 50's or 60's. Most wouldn't have the imagination to do anything but bulldoze such a place, but this one is a keeper! Decor is modern and clean. Customer service is great. Nice fitness center and Citi Java and News coffee shop is perfect. Walking distance from many shops, bars, restaurants, park, and historic homes. My wife is very happy we ended our vacation here.

Thank you for taking the time to post a very positive review of City Loft. Our goal is as you described us- a unique experiment- 50s motel, turned luxury hotel with excellent service. Both staff at CLHotel and City Java & News will be proud to know that they have received such "lofty" praise. Thank you and please come visit again soon.

My wife and I have stayed multiple times at City Loft, while house hunting in Beaufort - a week in January, and a few days in April. What a great project, to transform a 50's downtown motel into a fabulous boutique hotel - inside and out. Many of the reviews positively describe the appointments, beds, soaking tubs, walk-in showers, colors, lighting, WiFi... all of which we heartily agree.

Matt and his team are fantastic - welcoming, friendly, tuned in to the small details and always available for special requests. Want a lunch basket and bottle of wine for a day at Hunting Island? No problem! How about a bike to tour around the historic downtown? A rack of them awaits you in the parking lot! Wishing for fresh baked cookies and tomorrow's weather forecast when your bed is turned down? Standard operating procedure!

City Loft is not only a 2 minute walk from Beaufort's best restaurants, but also fabulous walking routes - both along the water, and through the adjoining historic neighborhoods. The attached City Java coffee shop offers great variety and quality, and is clearly a favorite of both guests and locals - as is the well appointed City Fit Gym. All this, and pet friendly too.

Having just recently moved to Beaufort, there's no where else we'd stay - except our own house...

Upon check in we were treated with respect and manners. The room was checked before we entered. We were escorted to the room. The hotel is SUPER clean, and full of luxury (bedding, shower, and full size tub) It is walking distance to most attractions. The whole crew was impressive

Room Tip: Call ahead. They fill up fast in season.

Our room was spotlessly clean, most attractive and well detailed -rain shower/soaking tub/ specialty bathroom lighting/ refrigerator/ bathrobes/ great bedding and pillows/ music doc for iPhone/ iron & ironing board/ island cruiser bikes included/ etc/etc. The staff was thorough, thoughtful and accommodating. This was much more than we were expecting . . . and a great location too.

We really enjoyed this affordable hotel. The staff was very helpful and the owner was on right there. The location is walkable which was important as we came boat. The on sight coffee bar was great. We would come again.

Sophisticated friendly gem in walking distance to the great restaurants Beaufort has to offer. The owner Matt couldn't do enough for us. Randy and Manny were terrific too. Our only complaint? We should have booked more than one night!
We will definitely come back on our next visit.
