My husband and I stayed at the Elliott House Inn for 2 nights celebrating his birthday. Upon our very early arrival (we arrived in the city at 8 am but check in wasn't until 3 pm) we met Neal at the front desk who is amazingly awesome and full of wonderful information. He told us everything from where to dine,... More

Stopped here for a night. Was looking for charm. Would have been off with a chain. No parking, the worlds smallest "pool", a blinking light on the phone that even the maintenance man could not fix set the stage. The second "B" in "b&b" means one bagel and one hard-boiled egg. We needed to go fund an actual breakfast.

It’s not a pool!!!! I’m so sorry that you assumed it was. It’s actually a rather large outdoor heated Jacuzzi. Due to health regulations, it must remain a hot tub, even during the warmer summer months. I apologize that you got the impression that we were a B&B. We’re actually an Inn that provides a complimentary continental breakfast and evening... More

The service was top notch and the breakfast was nice as well as the courtyard. Parking is located across the street and the cost is $20.00 a day. I was not impressed with the bathroom. That is the very first thing that I look at when I first arrive in my room as well as the bed. I immediately noticed... More

We decided to go to Charleston, for the 4th of July and was able to find a room here. The front desk staff Neil and Grace were great, however- we got to the room and it is very small, and found hairs on the pillowcases, the remote had tape on the back and did not work, and was a bug... More

I apologize for some of the features in your room not being in working order for your arrival, that’s certainly not what we want any guest to experience. I am pleased to see that Neal stepped up and was able to provide everything you needed for a comfortable nights rest. If you’re looking for a cheaper value, I would recommend... More

I was looking for an inn or small hotel in the old town area and the Elliott House proved to be perfect for accommodation and location. Our room overlooked the courtyard ,was well furnished and quiet.

Had the room been $40-50 cheaper with free parking, this review would be rated higher. The website did not mention that parking garages in the area run about $20 and no free street parking. The room is nicely furnished, but smells quite musty in spite of the dehumidifier tucked in the corner. The bug we squashed in the bathroom seemed... More

I’m sorry you did not find a true “value” while staying at Elliott House for your visit to Charleston. I’m surprised by your statement that we did not mention this on our website.

We originally booked a hotel room at the Society House in Charleston. We received a call saying that because of plumbing problems, there were no room available and we were being switched to the Elliott (their sister hotel) At the Society House we had booked a suite, and we're very disappointed when we got to the Elliott and saw the...

We stayed at this inn while traveling up to Jersey. We found on hotels tonight. Got a great rate and the inn was so wonderful and more than we expected. The service was outstanding.
