“Fantastic place to stay.”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Started with the warmest welcome from reception and just got better and better! Amazing room straight out of "Gone with the wind" very spacious and full of character, even had a kitchen and dressing room. Breakfast included and bought to your door every morning (bit on the light side but probably a good thing with such good restaurants around). Loved the wine, cheese at five every day and before that we quenched our thirst after many hours of walking, on the home made iced lemonade in the courtyard. All staff great particularly Neil on reception who was a mine of information. Would not hesitate to go back - perfect location! Hamilton Limos (843) 532-5539 were charming, good value at $14 to the airport each and turned up at least 10 minuets early to avoid any stress. Brilliant meal at Poogans Porch. All in all very successful!

We stayed here for a mini-reunion of 3 couples in Charleston and the courtyard provided a wonderful gathering place for us -- breakfast, afternoon, cocktail time! The accommodations were spacious and lovely.
Front desk staff, especially Neil, were very helpful with all sorts of questions and for making dinner suggestions and reservations for us.

Room Tip: Be sure to choose courtyard room

The Inn was full the first night we tried to get in but the night staff were so very helpful, checking availability at other establishments, that we decided to extend our stay in Charleston and checked in the following lunchtime. Room was very comfortable and quiet. The courtyard was a really nice spot for early (& late) evening drinks. Staff very knowledgeable about the history of Charleston and helped us plan the rest of our road trip.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to be quiet.

Every time I go the Charleston, which is a couple of times a year for a nice weekend, I stay at the Elliott House Inn. It's location is amazing. You walk out the door and have three of Charleston's best restaurants right there - Husk, Poogins Porch and 82 Queen. You can walk right less than one block to the antiques and clothes shops on King St or go left one block to museums or art shops on Market. You can even go one block south and find yourself on Broad St. The jumping off point for all the lovely houses and gardens that are south of Broad.
The rooms are good sized and nicely appointed and there is a parking garage just across the street so you can park your car and forget it!
It really is a great location!

Location is great for everything South of Broadway. Room was smallish but comfortable. Staff was attentive and cheerful at all times. Breakfast and daily social hour were very nice. Parking in Public Lot across the street was no problem, but expensive $20 per day.Walls seemed a little thin, could hear guests on both sides of our room, talking or snoring, but not their TV's...hmm. Window Shades are Venitian Blind type and didnt really close out all the light, courtyard and security lights seemed to be on all night so room never got pitch black, maybe a feature, not a flaw?
Would gladly come back.

Room Tip: Bring an eye shade if a really dark room is important.

We appreciate you taking the time to review your stay. I’m especially pleased to read that you enjoyed your time and would come back again – that’s exactly what we want to hear from every guest that stays with us. Next time you book, make sure to ask for a room in the back with curtains – that will probably block out some of the residual sounds and lighting issues you experienced. Thank you again and come back again soon, we would love it!

while waiting for our researvation at Husk, we stumbled on this Inn. Excellent location, parking garage across the street and walking to everything from Market down to Battery Park. I cant walk far and was extremely dissapointed with Historic Hampton's Inn location & $400 night price & none cozyroom. Hubby went in & asked about prices and front desk very helpfull. We will stay here next time and get exactly what we want with no hastle of parking.

Room Tip: I did not stay so I put excellent for everything

This is a very cozy Inn in the heart of downtown. We have walked to everything for this Inn. Great restaurants on either side on the Inn. The Inn Staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. My only suggestion is the morning coffee needs to be hotter.
We will stay here again on our next visit to Charleston

Room Tip: We are on the second floor, ask for a room with the window facing the courtyard.
