“My favorite in Charleston”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

I book the Indigo whenever I am in Charleston. Convenience, friendly helpful staff, small but very well appointed rooms, a very nice breakfast, a nice happy hour reception nosh. Ignatius seems to have been here forever, but get to know him. Ask him things about Charleston. He will not lead you astray. Rooms may be somewhat smaller than in some other establishments, but very well appointed, and very clean.

The location was great, and the parking (daily rate added to/including in room rate) was super convenient. Our room had two big beds and was very clean. The courtyard was very pretty, and a perfect spot to sit and have a nice breakfast (provided). The biggest plus was the pet friendliness, they let us bring our three little dogs.

Communicating with the hotel prior to arrival was excellent, front desk help was courteous and communicative.

We just got back from a seven day bus tour of Atlanta, Savannah and Charleston. We generally had great accommodations at every stop but the Indigo Inn stood out. The room wasn't real big but it was finely decorated. I mentioned how much we liked the room to the desk clerk and she indicated all rooms were individually decorated. The interior courtyard is a great place to visit with friends. The food was good and they made an effort to get it out early when our bus had to leave early. It was close enough to shopping and other attractions to just walk out the door. Thanks to the staff for their southern hospitality.

Room Tip: Our room 305 was a nice quiet room. One might get some noise from being on the first floor near the...

I loved the courtyard. A great place to relax. My room was lovely with very comfy bed. Breakfast was a buffet with plenty of variety. Location perfect. Parking lot for $12 a day. Only complaint was weak coffee! I like my coffee strong. Price was good. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: My sister had a lovely roomy corner room 301. Request rooms above ground floor.

We've been to Charleston several times and usually stay at our favorite hotel. This time we wanted to do something different so after reading reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to stay at Indigo Inn. We were warmly greeted at the front desk. We were issued a parking pass ($12.00/night) and were off to our room on the 2nd floor. The Inn is old and small. I like the idea of a smaller lodging -less crowds and more personal. Our room was rather small, but there was a sofa, chair and we had a queen size bed all in the living area. The bed was very comfortable and made for a great nights sleep. The a/c unit was noisy but I guess it goes with the Inn being old. The bathroom looked like it was in a closet - right next to the bed. Again, rather small, but for the amount of time you spend in the room, it was okay. Shower was large with plenty of hot water. Toilet area was a bit tight if you closed off the door to the vanity area. A free breakfast was served in the small lobby area. Usual breakfast items. Food could be enjoyed in the outdoor garden area or could be brought up to your room. Wine, cold drinks, cheese & crackers in the afternoon.

We stayed here for one night in Sept. It was quiet and comfortable. Close walking distance to the charm of Charleston night life. My only complaint was the cleaning products that we could smell when the air conditioner was on. The room had a strong smell of chemicals. Turning the air conditioner off seemed to fix the smell.

My daughter and I spent our second trip to Charleston at Indigo Inn for five nights. We previously stayed at Fulton Lane Inn and loved it but wanted to try something different and a bit less expensive. Beds are comfortable, towels are plentiful and soft, plenty of drawer space and yes the rooms are small but for two women we had no trouble at all. Two large comfortable chairs, plenty of room on the vanity, somewhat small closet but it worked. Bath area extremely small but not a deal breaker. Lovely courtyard as everyone has mentioned with a net over it to keep out birds. Nice breakfast buffet - larger on weekends with casseroles, one day potato casserole, the next day egg casserole - but weekdays a large variety of breads, mini biscuits and ham, assorted fruit (one day mixed fruit and then grapes, another day mixed fruit and watermelon), coffee, orange juice, yogurt - just all very nice. Everyone there is friendly and helpful and we loved the location being two blocks from North Market Street. Parking on-site was easy and never had a problem finding a space. We spent one day on Folly Beach and another day at Boone Hall at the Scottish Festival and very easy access back to the Indigo Inn. We loved it and would stay there again.
