My wife and I stay here every time we come to Charleston. Beautiful rooms and large layouts. Spotless. Professional. Perfectly located. Exactly what you can expect in a great hotel. As a Charleston expert, I can honestly say (Hotel Mgmt will agree I'm sure) that there is more than one great hotel here, but you can do no better than... More

The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Staff is accommodating to your every need .The Lodge is centrally located and is within a short walking distance to the market, the pier, rainbow row houses, the battery, and there are probably at least 40 places to eat within a four block radius. This is the only place we stay when we go to... More

The resort is quaint and perfectly located in the heart of Charleston. You cannot beat the location of this resort for access to landmarks and restaurants. Some of the resort's buildings are more 'historic' than others but all... More

This place is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful! Our room was really nice and comfortable with a lovely little balcony and gorgeous architectural details. The staff was really nice and helpful. We were within walking distance to the market, the waterfront, the historic rainbow row houses, any type of restaurant or bar that you could want. Yes, it's true that this place... More

I travel to Charleston at least twice a year and always stay at the Lodge Alley Inn. The location is the BEST. You are close to the waterfront, public market, shopping and dining.
