Great location, but terrible room. The mattress was worn out. It felt like I was 3-4" below my wife's side of the bed. Cheap fake leather recliners did not match rest of decor. Breakfast was a joke. No lobby or meeting area per say. I would never recommend this inn to anybody. $300/ night for a $50 room.

Stay at a chain like Hampton's and you will not be disappointed! Parking is $20 per day and limited. The room is full of furniture, but most of it is not useful. There is no desk for computer, the internet is spotty. If it's raining, the room is dark and not very comfortable. Breakfast and evening wine is nice, but... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Elliot's. Hosts were welcoming, room was clean-perfect (huge!) size for me and my husband and our daughter. Breakfast was perfect-they cook whatever you like, and accommodated my gluten free diet. Service was amazing-such a nice way to start the day. Walk into town was scenic and only 5/10mins depending on where you want to... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent stay with us at The Elliott House Inn in Charleston, South Carolina. The breakfast that we provide is small and lite. We do provide some small breakfast options that are gluten free, but if we do not have what you are looking for, there are several wonderful breakfast restaurants... More

We came to Charleston to celebrate our twentieth wedding anniversary. We were allowed to check into our rooms early on Sunday which may explain the lack of clean towels in the bathroom. The room was pretty and tidy but for the price we were very dissapointed that there was no small refrigerator,coffee maker,or other typical "amenities" that you would expect... More

The room reeked of air freshener. We had to leave the door open to air it out. Then the kitchen for restaurant next door starting cooking. All the smells and the noise came in our room. This kept up until about midnight. The bath towels were very small and had strings hanging from them. The bed pillows were like sacks... More

First off, I’m sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at the Inn. This is honestly one of the first times I have ever heard somebody complaining about the mattresses. Typically, guests will ask us where we purchased the bed from, so that way they can have one at their own house. I’m sorry that the size of the... More

Great location in downtown, within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Very pleasant courtyard. Newly renovated and spacious bathroom, the room itself a little tight. Breakfast adequate, nicely served in the courtyard.

Best place to stay in Charleston. Located between two great restaurants. Knowledgable, courteous staff. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast and evening reception are a nice touch. We always look forward to returning to the Elliot House.

Wow! Thank you for your kind words about the Inn and the staff. The staff tries to provide the highest quality of service for all of our guests.

Cute place, could have used some pampering around the courtyard and in the room, great place overall and with some attention to "ambiance" of the local area could be great! Also, the staff could provide an update as to what is going on within the city during a guests stay, share some history about the property, the amenities available and... More
