When you travel you have to remember that from place to place the price expectation ratio changes. A $150 room in Bentonville Arkansas is not the same as a $300 room in Charleston SC. Charleston SC does not do cutting edge. I don't see a W Hotel in Charleston's future. With that out of the way. First the Elliot House... More

My wife and I just loved our stay. The B&B was great. The room was very clean, and comfy. Room service and the evening wine and. cheese was a nice touch. We will stay there again in our next visit to Charleston. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. The B&B is located between some fantastic resturants.... More

Calling this a hidden gem isn't quite right. It isn't hidden It's old and for its age it's well kept up. It reminded me of many small European hotels but with a southern American twist. But of course that is their heritage The rooms were small but clean and comfortable. The location is superb. Very convenient to all downtown Charleston... More

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

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

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
