Could not fault location, fantastic for all of down town Charleston and right opposite a car park which for a city centre was great. Bed was very comfortable. Wifi included - also a plus. Apart from that it was just ok to be honest, whole place felt very tired and in need of some tlc. Bathroom small, towels small and... More

Thank you so much for your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. I appreciate you noting not having a heated towel rail, this honestly has not been something that previous guests have requested, however I think it’s certainly worth exploring for upgrading the rooms in the coming months. I appreciate the staff were attentive, I’m sorry you felt compelled... More

Great location, just a couple blocks walk from everything. Super friendly staff. Just amazing courtyard, eating our breakfast out there was so nice. The room was pristine and the bed was so comfy! You won't be disappointed!

The Elliot House Inn was the perfect location. Our room was beautiful, spacious and clean with Charelston charm. However ,our first night after walking all day and touring Charelston in the heat, we came back to no Air condition. It was very difficult to rest up for my next day in Charelston. A fan with ice was their late night... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in the middle of July to celebrate his birthday.

My husband and I stayed at the Elliott House Inn for 2 nights celebrating his birthday.

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

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
