This is a very cozy Inn in the heart of downtown. We have walked to everything for this Inn. Great restaurants on either side on the Inn. The Inn Staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. My only suggestion is the morning coffee needs to be hotter. We will stay here again on our next visit to Charleston

My husband and I stayed here during a couple night stay in Charleston. The location is unbeatable, as it is walking distance to shops and restaurants. I especially loved that it is down the road from our favorite Charleston restaurant, Husk. Even if you don't dine there, the bar is well worth a visit. I found the room at Elliott... More

What a lovely review! Nicely appointed rooms that are clean should be a standard for everyone that stays with us and I’m pleased that we met those expectations. Our location can’t be beat with some of the sights and restaurants that Charleston has to offer! Next time you’re visiting The States, we would love to have you come back again. More

We spent two nights here on a birthday stacation. There was a wonderful bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room compliments of the staff in celebration of the birthday. That was a fun surprise. The staff was very friendly and responsive. We enjoyed the evening happy hour which consisted of cheese and crackers, wine and sweet tea.. The... More

I appreciate you taking the time to comment on your recent stay with us. You are correct, the hotel is sandwiched between two of the best restaurants in downtown Charleston – Husk and 82 Queen. That sometimes can bring unwanted residual noises from both. Fortunately, both restaurants close at 11pm, so after that time noises can be minimal. I am... More

Found this gem and stayed there September, 2013. We were very warmly welcomed upon our arrival and used their complimentary bikes to explore the historic area while waiting for our room. We had a beautiful suite in a quiet corner of the courtyard. Enjoyed the complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoon. The location could not be better-within walking distance... More

My girlfriend and I were in Charleston for a wedding and had been staying at a friends place outside of downtown . We decided on the last day, to spend the night at The Elliott House.

This was to be a high light for us. Having stayed in big hotels else where for a third of the price that we paid here we were EXTREMELY disappointed. The staff seemed disinterested and not engaging as we had previously experienced. Once again this was to have been quaint not pokey and also a high light.

The nice staff and central location made up somewhat for the very small room and in our case being in a location under a staircase with a window about three feet away from a neighboring building. Our room was very dark. The bathroom shower is a nice size, but the sink was the size of a postage stamp. The heater... More

I appreciate your candid take on your stay at Elliott House Inn. Some folks are not aware that the building that houses the guest rooms was built in 1861. Over several years the rooms were outfitted with individual bathrooms and guest rooms, which is the cause for smaller than average hotel rooms and bathrooms. I like to think that it... More

If this hotel was in any other location the rooms would cost $30 per night. Location great, wine/cheese hour was nice, as was breakfast in our room, but nothing stood out as great other than the proximity to downtown/restaurants. Doors not secure while outside room as dead bolt cannot be locked from exterior. No individual safes available, front desk staff... More

While I appreciate you choosing Elliott House Inn to stay while visiting Charleston, I’m not sure that I agree with your statement that we are a $30 a night property.

Having stayed here twice, I can assure you it is worth the trip!.. You can have a very historically decorated room or one with a more contemporary feel. Either way you have all the benefits of a B&B with the privacy of your own entrance opening from a safe and beautiful courtyard, where wine and cheese are served in the... More

We had a wonderful experience at the Elliott House. The young man at the front desk is very knowledgeable of the history of Charleston and even does a walking tour. The place was clean, the service was friendly. We were impressed.
