“Rest and Relaxation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

I would like to start by saying we really enjoyed our stay at the Water's Edge Inn. Me and my husband stayed here for a short (3 night) honeymoon. It was warm and inviting and the staff is AMAZING! The happy hour is such a nice perk and something everyone should make time for. Breakfast was good and what I expected but if you are a BIG eater you might need to let them know to put more out (and they would be happy to) or go out for breakfast. There was always something warm for breakfast but it's not a huge meal. We always took our breakfast back to the room and ate it on our porch overlooking the marsh. It was a great way to start the day! The rooms are nice and clean and the bathrooms are so great! I took a long plunge in the jetted tub as soon as we arrive. It was so relaxing and just what I needed after a long car ride and a crazy wedding week. This was our first time in a bed and breakfast and I didn't think about it but you can hear others. It wasn't a big deal because none of the other guest were loud but we could hear doors. Like I said, wasn't a big deal but something to make note of. The Inn is close to the beach but you can't see the ocean. It is an easy walk but when you have a bag, chairs, and it feels like 95 out side walking is the last thing you want to do. When I first came to this conclusion I was a little put out but don't worry because Water's Edge and their staff makes up for it. As soon as we walked downstairs we told who ever was at the desk we need a ride to the beach and by the time we made it outside there was someone there to take us the short 2 second ride on the golf cart to the beach. Then when we were ready to come back I just called and let them know as we were packing up and they were there waiting on us as we exited the beach. It was such a nice perk! You really feel like you are being taken care of at Water's Edge Inn because there is a small number of guest and the staff is really there to help! If you are looking for place to relax on Folly stop looking because you found the place!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a marsh view! We stayed in Hemingway!

This was the second time visiting the Water's Edge Inn, and once again it was an outstanding visit. Paul and his staff provide great customer service and go out of their way to make your visit outstanding! They treat their returning guest with a very generous discount! Thanks to the Water's Edge Inn for another great trip to Folly Beach.

We had the best time at the Inn. It was quiet, safe, and a great value. The bed was soft and the shower was awesome. We took advantage of their package for renewing our wedding vows for our tenth anniversary. They worked with us to tailor the ceremony to what we wanted. The staff was caring and interested in our plans for each day. I will stay here again next time we go to Folly Beach.

We really enjoyed our first stay at Water's Edge and we'll definitely go back! The rooms were comfortable and the private, screened-in balcony was wonderful! Happy hour and breakfast were nice touches, as well as the ability to rent bikes and umbrellas for a small fee. We'll try to get a room on the back side of the inn next time so we'll have a little bit nicer view of the inlet (our balcony overlooked the front garden/parking area, which wasn't bad, but not as scenic). Would highly recommend for any couple who is trying to get a retreat without the kids. Walking distance to great restaurants, the beach and just a short drive to downtown Charleston. We're so glad we found this place - it was worth sacrificing an oceanfront view for the quality of the service and the rooms.

Room Tip: Pick a room on an upper floor - the two bottom rooms of the Inn have no balcony. The top floor room...

Water's Edge is a top notch bed and breakfast. We stayed for 4 nights for our honeymoon and it was perfect. Great location on the island just a short walk from the beach and center street. Highly recommend it to those heading to Folly. We will definitely be staying here again when we have the chance.

My fiancé and I recently stayed in the Regata room for a long weekend to celebrate my birthday. We absolutely love Folly Beach, as it is only a two hour drive from home. However, The Waters Edge Inn was thoroughly disappointing to the two of us.

Our room was literally five feet from the 24 hour hot tub. We were kept awake until past 2:00am by two intoxicated couples using the hot tub.

I have also never seen pillows as thin as the ones in our room. Absolutely ridiculous for the price of the room. Please pack your own pillow and a pair of earplugs.

Unlike other reviews, we found the breakfast to be well stocked and delicious.
