We took a 10 day trip visiting Charleston and Savanah and decided to stay one night in Beaufort after reading some reviews of the area. This small property was the highlight of our stay in Beaufort. The staff and owner go out of there way to help and make sure you are comfortable and happy. We loved it so much... More

From the moment I pulled in the parking lot, I knew this is my new "home base" in Beaufort! I was greeted in the parking lot by a young man who carried my bags up to the second floor office. Check-in was easy and fast. He, the, carried my bags to my room and showed me all the cool features... More

Although we have been coming to Beaufort for close to 10 years, we have always had the opportunity to stay with friends on Fripp Island. We try to go to Beaufort as often as possible and this time our usual wasn't available so we booked into City Loft Hotel! Amazing. Adorable. Clean. Comfortable. Staff nice, friendly and extremely helpful. Don't... More

Could not have found a better place. Just left Charleston paid twice as much for a bad experience. Thanks to the reviews on trip advisor we came here and were not disappointed. Very impressed with everything from staff to small details in the room, which is very well appointed no details overlooked. We will be back and recommend to everyone... More

Thanks for your reviewed with the headline "Loved Everything"- hard to ask for more. We are happy to know that we stack up against more expensive and likely larger properties in the Charleston area. We are small in stature but big on service and design. Thank you for staying with us and please visit again in the near future. More

We go to the Beaufort area often. Up until this trip we had not traveled to Beaufort with our dog but just assumed there would be plenty of pet friendly options. We saw that there was a Best Western and assumed, if nothing else was available, we could go there since most are pet friendly. Au contraire, we went to... More

Thank you for the highly detailed review praising both the property and staff. It would appear that your early misfortune (other hotels full) was our good fortune in the end. You described the décor so perfectly- it is part traditional, part modern- woods and metals blended together for comfort and efficiency. Thanks again for your review and we hope to... More

Comfortable, clean, convenient - could not ask for more. Love the modern decor, huge tub and coffee coupons! Best coffee ever in the attached City Java Cafe. Located right in the middle (very short walking distances) of historic neighborhood, downtown shopping and great food. We also appreciate that our small dog is always welcome.

This place is so cool. It has one of the best bathrooms I've ever seen. Complete with it's own tv! The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. And housekeeping is fabulous. Also, appreciate the two bottles of complimentary water each day. We will surely make a return trip.
