Reviewed 27 June 2014

We stayed at this inn while traveling up to Jersey. We found on hotels tonight. Got a great rate and the inn was so wonderful and more than we expected. The service was outstanding. The room was so clean and loved the decor. The happy hour was small but if you want drinks 82 Queen bar is right next door. We walked down to harbor for sunset so if you are in mood to walk it is in a great spot to walk around downtown. Highly recommend and will return next time we ate in Charleston.

I did my research and picked this hotel based on reviews. The first night there was a wedding behind the hotel blasting music until well after 11:00. (mean while, we went to relax) Had a courtyard view which the light lights up your room the entire night like it day light out. The young man at the front desk was really great with helping us historical wise pick places to see. There was spiders in the room I was bit on my leg twice while in bed not sure by what . They only give you three choices for breakfast a bagel, cereal or yogurt. Which was all fine. The staff were all wonderful but will not be going back because of room.

Room Tip: There isn't any

I understand that you have a lot of hotels to choose from while visiting Charleston and thank you for choosing us. While I’m pleased to read that the staff exceeded your expectations, I am sad that the room did not. Please know that the city of Charleston has a strict noise ordinance for weddings and city events which requires all live music cease at 11pm, no exceptions. While we were not notified that the music continued past 11, had we been, I’m confident the local authorities would have taken care of the issue promptly. It’s not something that the city handles lightly for the discomfort of nearby residents and tourists in the community. I appreciate your feedback on our breakfast. We are constantly reviewing breakfast options and looking for ways to increase the overall quality of the foods. I’m sorry to read of your spider bite, that’s not a common occurrence in our property that maintains monthly pest prevention. While I understand that we failed you in some aspects of your staff, my hope is that the good outweighs the bad and you’ll give us another try while visiting Charleston.

My husband and I stayed at the Elliot House Inn this past weekend while we were enjoying a romantic getaway. We booked through some last-minute booking phone app my husband has on his phone, so we didn't know much about the inn prior to booking but we were so pleasantly surprised with how everything turned out! The office staff greeted us warmly and was very accommodating. We stayed in room 21 which was quaint and adequately sized for the two of us. It faced the street and had more windows than the other rooms on that 'side' of the inn, since it was an end room. This was both a pro and a con as it had beautiful views and lots of light, but we were also able to hear the city bus and trash truck as it came through every morning. On Saturday night we could hear folks next door at Husk having quite a rowdy evening, but they turned the music off around 11 and otherwise it was not an issue. There is a street lamp outside one of the windows so the room wasn't as dark as we generally prefer, but it probably would have been satisfactory for most people. Next time we visit, we will ask for a room at the back of the inn to see if there is a difference. breakfast was delivered to our room both mornings and although it would have been nice to see different options each day, the amount of food was ample and it was overall very good. We LOVED the location and walked anywhere we wanted to go. My husband, who is generally not picky about hotel rooms and generally sees no need to stay in anything fancy (he figures we'll be out exploring as we travel so the room isn't too important, standard hotel room is fine) absolutely LOVED the EHI and has said he won't be able to return to Charleston and not stay there. Overall, we had a wonderful time and will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We were in room 21 and while we loved the windows and views, we could hear folks at Husk on Saturday...

Thank you for taking the time to share about your visit with us at The Elliott House Inn. I’m super excited that you enjoyed your stay here, and that you do not want to stay anywhere else the next time you come to Charleston. Room 21 is one of our Traditional Queen Rooms, and it is a wonderful room especially because it is so well lit. Being on such a wonderful culinary based street, you get to enjoy the sights and the sounds of what Charleston has to offer. The Courtyard Rooms in the back of the property tend to provide a little more intimacy and quite time. The breakfast in the morning is a great way to jump start your day, because it provides you with the source of the energy you need to get out and explore this immaculate city. If you are looking for more variety and a full breakfast, we are just steps away from restaurants that will offer you that style of breakfast. Once again, thank you so much for expressing your satisfaction with your stay.

We have stayed at various places in Charleston's historic district over the years. The Elloitt House is one of the best. The location is excellent. The room was well decorated and clean. The staff are polite and helpful. The courtyard is lovely...great place to hang out. The light breakfast brought to the room each morning is a great way to start the day...a light snack before you hit the streets. We couldnt be happier with our overall experience and we would recommend the Elliott House to anyone looking for a reasonably priced place to stay in historic Charleston. We will definately stay there again.

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
