Reviewed 28 April 2014

What a gem! From the first contact to make our reservation to check out, the staff at City Loft was outstanding. The Hotel is really "hip"...it is spotlessly clean and beyond comfortable. The bathroom is incredible with a wonderful soaking tub and rain shower. It was nice to have a fridge, bath robes, wine glasses and nice toiletries. There was a great coffee shop and we were provided with coupons for coffee each day. Room service was available (although we didn't take advantage). The location is perfect. Everything is within walking distance and there were some fine restaurants in town! We fell in love with Beaufort and the people! This really is a five star place without being pretentious and cold.

Describing us as hip but not pretentious suggests we have delivered you a quality product in an understated fashion. Thanks for the compliment. Staff and I are appreciative of your review and will keep working hard to deliver to excellent service and and an excellent product each and every time.

Ideal location to waterfront and downtown. We loved the wonderful,creative design of the bathroom--one of the coolest we've stayed in at this price. The hotel also gave us a $5 credit for the coffee shop connected to the hotel. Staying here was truly a treat.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review describing us as a"real treat". Our location in the heart of Beaufort's historic district is indeed ideal and we are fortunate to have found ourselves right in the middle of a hub of activity which affords our guests easy access to dining, shopping, historic landmarks and beautiful waterfront vistas. Thank you for staying with us.

This wonderful little hotel is cleaner than clean. From check-in to check-out it was a pleasure to call the place our temporary home. Staff came to our car and ask to help with our luggage. Room amenities: fridge, real glass wine glasses, IPhone dock, bottle of red and chilled white wine for only $16 each, free bottled water, green toiletries, bath robes and linens that are of great quality. Good fitness room with sauna's. You can't beat the location, easy walk to restaurants, shops and historic sites. You have to stay here!

Cleaner than clean is a statement that housekeeping will be delighted to hear. Awesome is another compliment that suggests you thoroughly enjoyed your visit and that we delivered on our mission to provide a great product and great service. Thank you for staying with us.

A downtown motel refurbished in a spa motif to excellent effect. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Service is attentive and pleasant. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Beaufort. It is within walking distance of the waterfront park and the main shopping and dining drag.

Great little hotel, easy walking distance to food/drinks. Nice empty grassy lot around the corner for doggie potty breaks. Very friendly staff, modern rooms.....killer shower heads. Excellent coffee shop on the property.

Very happy to know that both you and your canine friend found City Loft to your liking! It is true there is a wonderful park with benches and grassy areas in which to walk your dog-..and bags in which to dispose of the "business" they may leave behind. We are thankful to the City of Beaufort for this wonderful convenience shared by all. Please visit again soon.

So I agree that this fab hotel was probably a motel, and if you're reading this, you're probably thinking, "Ugh." But the photos you see on the website EXACTLY match the rooms. Plus the service is great (they booked me some time at the spa because I was leaving early to hit the channel islands). The City Java coffee house is equally lovely. It's like a boutique hotel in NYC but better because you're in a small town. The tub is great. The shower is great. The bed is great. My only suggestion (and I already made it to them) would to be to have the little table/chairs outside each room on the walkways to get there. It is really nice. A wee bit noisy with motorcycle riders on the street, but it didn't take away from the experience. Everything that matters is within walking distance except the islands (and if you're hearty, you can walk over the bridge to the first one). Beaufort it self is quite attractive as well... having a house there wouldn't be a bad decision! Look forward to going back.

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.
