I've stayed here several times over the last year in different units. All are spacious, some more updated than others. The buildings are old and historic; if there are rooms above you, you are going to hear every step. If there are kids, you will hear them running at 7 A.M.! That being said, the location is so perfect, I... More

Rented this charmer through Craigslist and the owner. Its a timeshare however, the consigner was still welcoming even though I was not a potential buyer. The front desk is open 24/7 with a helper for bags if need be. I was on an upper floor and took the elevator to a nicely furnished, in a traditional style studio. Small area... More

I stayed here for several nights. The location is perfect for shopping, eating, drinking, and looking at the sites. The staff is very friendly and go out of their way to help. The units are in a older style in keeping with the Charleston atmosphere. Each unit is different from the last. I have stayed at the Lodge Alley Inn... More

From the Valet to the beautifully decorated room it was so nice. I wish they still did the extreme decorating in the rooms but they have really scaled back Clean Love the cookies and sherry at 4pm in the lobby Did the timeshare sitting for free tickets and a $50 gift card. Learned a lot Very much enjoyed my visit.... More

You couldn't ask for a better location than the Lodge Alley Inn in downtown Charleston. It was clean and the staff was friendly. The 1 bedroom loft was very spacious, but was awkward. The pull-out sofa made it impossible for anyone to walk in and out of the room. There was only one bathroom (up a narrow spiral staircase). Outside... More

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.

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

My family are members of BlueGreen and have traveled throughout the country with their resort options. Lodge Alley was our next stop! 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
