My husband and I visited Charleston and Savannah for 7 days. We stayed in hotels in both cities that were ranked high on Tripadvisor. (Comfort Inn Suites West of Ashley and Holiday Inn Express Historic District Savannah). Neither disappointed. Thanks Tripadvisor! We booked fairly last minute at Middleton Place Inn. Service from start to finish was 5*, from reservations to check out. We requested early check-in which they couldn't accomodate but offered to call our cell when the room was ready (which they did). Room was maybe 3* at best, but that didn't bother us at all. We also opted for lake view ($30.00 extra). This wasn't worth the added cost, because the lake view wasn't great (shutters and awfully dirty windows didn't help). Also, the fireplaces in these rooms were "closed for season." We had one bed in a huge room (bed seemed like a small queen). It was okay but not perfect. Inn price includes admission to grounds, house museum tour, wine/cheese/appy reception (hosted by a helpful, friendly young guy) and breakfast (overlooking a gorgeous little pond). Our stay here capped off a busy week in the most perfect way. Touring the plantation, virtually on our own at times, was a real pleasure. I will rank this 5+ stars!!

We stayed 2 nights at Middleton this past week. While the grounds were beautiful, the Inn is in much need of attention. First, signage to the Inn was not very visable, especially at night. The Inn is very isolated... which could be a good thing or bad, depending on what you are looking for. There is no shuttle into Charleston. Check in was a breeze... but it kind of went downhill from there. The furniture was very dated and worn. The bed kind of 'sank' in the middle. Bottled water was not replenished daily. The room just had a very 1980's feel to it. The front desk agent was not very knowledgeable about Middleton Place when we asked questions. On our second night a couple checked into the room above us. Late into the night there was alot of noise... hardwood floors and heavy walking, etc. Since the Inn was so secluded, at night it would have been nice to have a DVD player in the room, but there was just an old TV that maybe got 10 channels. The fireplace was 'closed for the season'... which was bizarre since early March is still considered winter and the morning lows were in the 30's/40's. The Inn just needs some major room renovations.

Would I stay at Middleton Place again? Probably not. While I think the Inn would be a lovely setting for a wedding or company retreat, it is not ideal for much else in my opinion.

The best thing about the Inn is Middleton Place itself. You are there on site with access to the gardens until dark, even after the property has closed to non-resident visitors. If you care about historic places or love gardens, this is a great way to experience the landscape—so ignore the imperfections of the inn and enjoy a beautiful early evening walk followed by a very good dinner at the restaurant.
That said, the inn seems to be operating on a tight budget with minimal staffing—all pleasant people, but few and far between and not especially well managed. This became a real problem when we elected to walk about 10 minutes to the restaurant in our good dryclean-only clothes and it began to pour while we were eating dinner. There was no staff person who could provide a ride back to our room, and they couldn't find one of the umbrellas that are sometimes available for guests. We got drenched.
The inappropriately modern architecture of the inn is bare bones with design flaws including irritating shutters (16 in our room) that get in the way of the view out the floor-to-ceiling windows even when they are opened.
March is high season for the camellias but shoulder season for the weather. When we arrived it was chilly, but the fireplaces in the rooms had already been shut down for the season and couldn't be reopened (we asked). The heating system did work well.
The television really was pathetic by comparison to what we have become used to in other hotels.
Young children would probably be happy here if they like to run around outdoors. They might also enjoy the overlarge tubs, which would seem like a swimming pool if you were small. For the rest of us, the real reason to stay here is the historic landscape adjacent to the inn.

As you are driving in to the Inn at Middleton Place, passing the stables, seeing the horses, large oak trees and then arriving you feel relaxed. The buildings are original and nice. We had the view of the Ashley river. Ceiling to floor windows with shutters. The bed was comfortable. The real fire place was very nice to have lit. Plenty of logs (they provide a fire starter so there is no kindlin to start). The Plantation is included and there is a very nice short walk along the river to get there. We had a Feb package which included a hot, cook to order breakfast. This was very good. The healthstart breakfast which is provided was basic. All of the people there were so nice and friendly, from the girl at check-in, to the girl handling the hors d' oeurves in the evening, to the guys who provided breakfast (the chef even came out to make sure all was well). My wife likes her bacon cooked crispy and they did that to order.
I liked the shape of the room and bath. The only reason my wife gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 was she felt the bath could be a little fresher looking. There were some streeks on the wall near the tub which could be painted over. But she LOVES the bath salts that are provided.
We would go back again without hesitation.
