I do a bunch of traveling. When I stay in NYC I expect modern and fast paced, Paris-love to smell the bread being baked next door, Florida a view of the beach and when in Charleston....I want charming and clean. Besides that you get friendly and helpful as well as wine & cheese in the courtyard at 5:00 daily. I would recommend it and stay there again. Understand, its not a posh hotel...its a charming inn!

The Indigo Inn is a hidden gem. Recently visited Charleston with a fellow retired educator. After contacting several hotels in the historic area we were at the end of our rope. Stopped in the Indigo Inn's parking lot to Google hotels in the Historic District. We realized that we were looking at a hotel. Ran in and asked if they had a room. They even took us to look at the available room. It was charming, quiet, cool, and very comfortable. Jerrica, Lorenzo, and the rest of the staff were wonderful!!!!!!!!!!. They made recommendations for dining and activities. and booked any needed reservations. They were spot on with ALL of their recommendations. Breakfast and Happy Hour were fantastic. Will stay again and will strongly recommend it to any one who will listen. Connie

On a no kids vacation we stayed at the Indigo Inn based on some Trip advisor reviews. It was just as advertised. The front desk staff was great and gave super meal and activity suggestions. The rooms were spacious and well kept (the bathroom is a bit small). The breakfast is more than plenty to start your day and always had a hot dish. Each evening was a wine and cheese reception. The AAA price for a King room can't be beat. We were within walking distance to everything and a free trolley stop. The courtyard is quaint and a great place to eat breakfast or just relax.

this hotel has friendly staff, charming lobby and rooms; beautiful hidden courtyard with ample seating to enjoy plants, flowers and fountain and talk about our trip; queen room was very comfortable, sofa for seating, clean and nicely decorated; our bed was turned down with chocolate left for us; cocktail hour - lemonade, tea, wine, fruit and cheese, as well as crab dip available each afternoon; enjoyed relaxing in courtyard after exploring city; location of hotel is convenient to King St shopping, exploring architecture of Charleston and a lot of wonderful restaurants nearby; breakfast was also included with our stay - scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, fruit, yogurt and cereal, as well as juice and coffee were provided. Rather than take to our room, we enjoyed our morning meal in the beautiful courtyard. An extra fee required for parking but we paid it to have guaranteed parking if we decided to do any driving during our stay. It was worth it. This hotel is a fabulous value and a hidden gem! Can't wait to return!

Room Tip: our room on 2nd floor corner was quiet, overlooked parking lot

The Indigo Inn was absolutely fantastic. Every staff member we met was friendlier than the next. We arrived before check-in and the folks at the front desk offered to watched our bags and gave us tons of sightseeing tips and recommendations. They had fantastic tips and directed us to a hole-in-the-wall locally sourced restaurant where my husband and I had the best crepe we have ever eaten. One day, we were chatting with the front desk staff about going to a restaurant for lunch and the gentleman offered to drive us in the hotel's golf cart. Southern hospitality is alive and well.

The room was lovely and really felt like home. It had all of the amenities of a modern hotel room, with the charm of B&B. There is a very pretty courtyard in the center of all the rooms with lots of foliage and a nice fountain. We enjoyed the complimentary continental breakfast as well as cheese and wine that was offered daily in the early evenings. The rooms were clean and the maid service came every day; including a turn-down service, which is always a nice touch. There was coffee, iced tea, lemonade, and water available all day in the lobby, which was extremely helpful to come back to after a hot day walking around the city.

The location cannot be beat. It is right in the heart of historic Charleston, so everything is walkable. We flew in and did not rent a car, and it was no problem at all! The hotel is only about 30 minutes from the airport, so the cab ride back and forth was not too expensive (our only cab ride of the trip!) In addition to the open air market, which is basically steps away from the hotel, there was also a Farmer's Market just a few blocks away. We really enjoyed our time there and got some goodies to take home on the last day.

I highly, highly recommend the Indigo Inn to anyone who is traveling to Charleston. We were so sad to leave it, but we can't wait to return!

My Husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Indigo Inn in June. We had taken a 5 day cruise and then 4 days of pure enjoyment in Charleston. The Indigo was the best fit for our stay!!! I had contacted the Indigo to see if it was possible to have an early check in. We were there about 10:30 AND our room was ready!! We would have been happy to have dropped our bags, BUT they were as good as their word- the room was open & ready for us!

This hotel is right where we wanted to be! PERFECT LOCATION! We were able to easily walk to where ever we wanted to go. The trolley does stop right in front of the Indigo if you needed a ride. We didn't use the trolley- but we thought about it- we enjoyed our walks. We sometimes wandered back to the hotel just to get an ice cold Lemonade or Ice tea and to sit in the court yard to decide what we wanted to do next.

The front desk was SO helpful!!! We often asked what they would suggest for dinner, lunch, or what to see. The front desk was great telling us what they would recommend. Hymann's is VERY CLOSE and we were given a free appetizer coupon from the front desk when they helped us call for reservations. SO appreciated and unexpected. (THANK YOU Indigo INN!) They also took care of us when we had to catch a very early flight- 6:00 AM flight out. The front desk asked if we needed anything to eat- they would have gotten something for us. Again a nice surprise!

Breakfast was so nice We enjoyed seeing what was for breakfast and every day there was something different. We also enjoyed the nightly wine & cheese reception. We enjoyed the selection of snacks and it was a nice way to unwind after a fun day of exploring. Again every night there was something different for us to try.

Our room was great! Yes, it was small. Bathroom was small.... BUT we really only slept there. It was a prefect place for us. Quiet! we were in a corner on the 2nd floor. We were close to the elevator- we rarely heard much noise. traffic noise was really rare. This was SO surprising since we were right off of a busy street.

I can't say enough good about the staff and the hotel. My husband said he would enjoy going back to Charleston and quickly added that it would be the Indigo inn. He told EVERYONE about how much he enjoyed the Indigo... he generally doesn't do that.... This was so much fun I would not hesitate booking this hotel.

Room Tip: We liked the 2nd floor you can enjoy seeing the courtyard and it was very quiet.

My sister-in-law and I stayed in Cahrleston for 4 days last month and after much research, I chose to book the Indigo Inn. It was exactly the location I wanted, and was less expensive than many of the hotels located downtown. The staff at the hotel were very knowledgable and helpful in assisting us with planning our days to best advantage, as well as very warm and friendly, which made us feel at home right away. Both Todd and Brian were really great and deserve mention for their hospitality. The rooms were nice and comfortable. The bathrooms, however, were not user friendly. The sink and vanity were large, and split from the toilet and shower, which did facilitate 2 people getting ready at the same time. My beef was really with the toilet and shower room. It was so tiny that it was annoying. There was not really enough room to put the toiletry articles I needed to use, and the lighting was extremely poor. They need to get more light in there....not really such a difficult thing to do. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this place. Perfect location, welcoming lobby that always had nice cold drinks when we came in from a really hot day, and a wonderful staff. I was glad we had a room facing the courtyard, not the street, which could be noisy at times. All in all, good job Indigo Inn!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the courtyard on the 2nd or 3rd floor for less noise.
