Wow!! This place is amazing. We checked in today and are already in love with this hotel. The room is beautiful and has so much character, from the original pine floors to the exposed brick walls!! The staff is wonderful and the valet man is so so sweet! I love that the hotel is right in the heart of town.... More

First, the negative: located on busy street and parking is either thru valet or parking garage (valet is cheaper and easier IF you plan on driving daily). The location is fantastic if you like downtown. Great shops and restaurants are all around! The ocean is a block away and historic "Rainbow Row" is only a few blocks down. Staff is... More

Clean, staff very nice and helpful. Gave us good advice on places to eat things to do. We were with large group the courtyard was a great place to meet at end of the day and spend time together. My motherinlaw loved going out there for coffee in the morning. It is beautiful in the courtyard. Will definitely go back.

Great location. $14 a day for valet parking is the only parking. Historic downtown. Walk everywhere. Trolley available nearby. There was an early heatwave and it was pushing 95-100 degrees the 2nd week of June. Prepare to sweat. Upstairs bedroom was a little warm for me, but I'm a 68 bedtime thermostat setting at home.

This was my first trip to Charleston, and my first stay at Lodge Alley as a Bluegreen owner. I arrived there by a $3 bus from the airport, and a free trolly ride! The location is ideal, and it is surrounded by restaurants and shopping. There is a 24 hour grocery store within a 5 to 10 minute walk. I... More

This was our 2nd visit & enjoyed every minute. Rooms have lots of space, nicely decorated and great location. Staff are exceptional! Will definitely be back in the near future. We are timeshare owners and this review is my honest opinion.

Lodge Alley is the perfect location in the heart of historic Charleston on Bay Street. The hotel is located a short walk to the waterfront, fountains and Marketplace. The hotel staff and bellman are friendly and helpful. Parking is off site and valet cost $14.00 a day for owners and takes 10 minutes. We had an issue with valet one... More

Don't be fooled like we were. We rented the studio loft for 5 nights. Upon check in we went to our room to unpack. The room was sweltering hot. We turned the air down to 68 and thought it would get better. As far as the unpacking goes there was one small closet upstairs. No dressers, no armoires. Now imagine... More

Had to go to Charleston for a funeral. Once there everyone was very nice and helpful, the rooms were spacious and clean, the sleeper sofa was the most comfortable sleep ever. I would definitely suggest this place, as well as stay again. The location was within walking distance to everything and the area was full of restaurants and historical homes.... More
