Great location for visiting Charleston. Parking lot directly across the street, but from this location there is no need for your car. Walking distance to many days worth of sightseeing, shopping and dining. The staff without exception were very helpful and considerate. They were happy to discuss and recommend dining locations, went out of their way to accommodate our breakfast... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It's an old building and the door doesn't exactly meet its sill, letting in lots of air. The heater/air conditioner is very noisy, so we turned it off and froze in bed (no extra blankets around). The second night we blasted the heat for 3 hours before going to bed and slept well. The first night we piled coats, etc.... More

The location of the inn was great. Being next door to the Husk is a good reason in its own. And the location provided quick walk to end of the peninsula and close enough to walk up to the Marion Square. Niceeee!

Spent a long weekend in a lovely room. Everything was clean and very quaint. The location was perfect, close to great restaurants and shopping. It really is in the heart of charleston. The wine and cheese hour and breakfast leave a lot to be desired though. The courtyard is also in desperate need of an update.

we stayed two nights on Dec. 2 and 3. Loved it Had a room "without a view", but it didn't matter at all. Very quaint, well priced and perfect location. Immediately next door to several of the finest restaurants in Charleston. Parking across the street in a parking garage - very safe. Extremely clean room. Interesting note: when we came... More

Highly recommend this place. Great staff and clean rooms. Central location to all downtown C town and great price can't say enough for our excellent breakfast service she was the bomb. We forgot our swim suits so didn't take advantage of the jacuzzi. However it was clean and ready to use

Stopped here for only one night, as part of a holiday travelling along the east coast. We wished we had stayed longer in Charleston, it is a lovely place to visit. Full of history. Everyone was so helpful. The staff at Elliot House were more than helpful. We borrowed bikes, free of charge, to look around Charleston. The breakfast was... More

In dire need of total renovation and updating of amenities. Does not appear as tidy as in photos. Towels are small rags. Would definitely not recommend tis hotel to anyone with allergies or physical limitations.

The Elliott House Inn went through extensive renovations, from 2009-2011. The building dates back to 1861, and anyone that has serious allergy issues may want to stay in a modern building that has central air conditioning. We have rooms that accessible for all people, furthermore, we have just installed a brand new elevator. The towels and wash clothes are standard... More

The picture of the courtyard depicts a jaccuzi, and should not be mistaken for a pool. The staff, rooms, and location of the hotel were excellent. If staying in Charleston, but you choose another location for lodging, I would highly recommend stopping by to talk to the front desk. The young man that works there could tell you almost anything...

I would recommend this stay to everyone. Not only are you getting the historical experience of Charleston, but it's in walking distance of everything. I was there for business and walked to my place of destination from my room. Charleston is a pretty safe community, and the staff was incredibly helpful and polite. The breakfast and evening reception were some... More
