This is a return trip for us. We have been coming for years. The location, service, and bike access can't be beat. We always tell our friends about this great historic Inn. The free breakfast is a treat and the courtesy and thoughtfulness of the staff is a constant. We greatly appreciate the free bike option, too. Each day we... More

This is a "good news, bad news" review. My wife and I just returned from a long weekend stay at The Elliott House Inn. The good news - the location is very good, right downtown and you can walk to anywhere, and they keep it clean. The staff was first rate, they are EXTREMELY nice people. One morning we had... More

I don't usually give commentary on my stays, but I was completely blown away by the Elliott House! We had a great stay, enjoyed happy hour and rode bikes around town the next day. Everything was top knotch and luxurious for a low(ish) price for the area. Right down town, easy to walk everywhere and tons of restaurants around-- completely... More

Great place to stay. Watch your valuables and check the bed. Angry staff? We got to the room after an evening out and was ready for a romantic moment and turned down the sheets to finda brown pudding like substance

I’m not quite sure what to make of your review with us. It was my understanding that when you came back from dinner at roughly 12:30am and turned down your sheets, that you found a stained fitted sheet, which our evening manager changed for you immediately. I’m not sure that anyone saw that “pudding substance” that you reference in your... More

Very nice property, small rooms but beautifully decorated. Centrally located in downtown Charleston. Rooms are not as soundproof as in a modern property. Staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the Charleston area. Breakfast was prompt as was housekeeping.

This is a quaint little inn in the heart of Charleston. It's such a great location. It's in the historic part of town and you can walk to any number of great restaurants and bars. We arrived late and were able to easily find a place to grab and snack and drink. The staff at the hotel is excellent. The... More

If you are looking for a cozy inn to hang your hat during your trip, this is it. The breakfast, while light in composition, is always delivered on time. It was just enough to get us going each day. Our room was always cleaned and anything we needed, including taxis or car services, was arranged for us. The staff are... More

For our first visit to Charleston, the Elliott House rolled out the red carpet! They arranged a black car service to and from the airport at a reasonable rate. All of the staff was friendly and helpful! Great location in the heart of the historical district. We were able to walk to just about any attraction, dining, or shopping. The... More
