We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The location, staff, and amenities couldn't have been better for such a fair and affordable price in this area. Look no further - I highly recommend.

We have been to Charleston numerous times and have almost always stayed at the Elliot House. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is unbeatable, with several restaurants on the same block of Queen Street, including Husk, Poogan's Porch and 82 Queen. Just be sure to make reservations for Husk at the same time you book your room... More

This is a lovely inn with a great location - close to historical sites, shopping and restaurants, and in walking distance of the battery and lovely homes on the peninsula. The staff was warm and welcoming, the breakfast served in our room each morning a great start to the day, and the evening wine and cheese reception a lovely way... More

Lovely boutique style hotel in the heart of Charleston's historic district. Staff very courteous and helpful with both directions and tour suggestions. Breakfast was a real bonus. The courtyard is beautiful. Wonderful experience!

We stayed here for one night this past weekend. The inn is just steps away from King St. were there's a lot of restaurants and shopping. It's right beside the Husk and 82 Queen which highly rated restaurants in Charleston. There is no onsite parking but there's a city parking garage across from the inn. The room is okay. Very...

Good accommodations old, but quaint and clean. Staff was very friendly and informative. We would go back in a heart beat! We loved the wine and cheese reception every night where you could connect with the other people and compare notes.

I can see why we were able to get in last minute here at under $200 a night. It's so so. It truly needs a facelift. Our room was extremely tiny not even a closet. Our bed had black hairs on it (and I'm blonde). Outdated and the breakfast that they include was terrible. I have to say I wouldn't... More

I appreciate your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. I’m sorry that the room and property didn’t meet your expectations, it was never our intent. The property was built in the 1800’s, because of this, we don’t have closets and the rooms are smaller than a typical chain hotel room. I wish that we had been notified of the... More

Couple trip - great location, cool place, not great sleep quality or bedding. This hotel needs a face lift and to spend some money upgrading the bedding and room quality. Poor sleeping conditions. Hard to get comfortable in bed because of dated bedding

Good news: Excellent location and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Very generous room size. Bad news: If you are going to pay $250-$350 per night, you expect a certain standard (furnishings, linens, etc) and this property does not deliver. Upgrade decor and finishes and you could have a winner. Poor soundproofing too.
