I have only good things to say about the Indigo Inn. We chose the hotel based on the great location and price, and it didn't disappoint on either count. Situated in downtown Charleston, the hotel is an easy walk to every busy street, which was perfect for two people who didn't know the city. I visited with a friend so... More

The Indigo Inn is a great place to stay. It is very quiet and comfortable. The beds are just right, they have many lamps so you can read while the people you're sharing room with can sleep, the level of cleanness is something to thank for, the service is impeccable and the little fountain in the central patio is a...

I do a bunch of traveling. When I stay in NYC I expect modern and fast paced, Paris-love to smell the bread being baked next door, Florida a view of the beach and when in Charleston....I want charming and clean. Besides that you get friendly and helpful as well as wine & cheese in the courtyard at 5:00 daily. I... More

The Indigo Inn is a hidden gem. Recently visited Charleston with a fellow retired educator. After contacting several hotels in the historic area we were at the end of our rope. Stopped in the Indigo Inn's parking lot to Google hotels in the Historic District. We realized that we were looking at a hotel. Ran in and asked if they... More

On a no kids vacation we stayed at the Indigo Inn based on some Trip advisor reviews. It was just as advertised. The front desk staff was great and gave super meal and activity suggestions. The rooms were spacious and well kept (the bathroom is a bit small). The breakfast is more than plenty to start your day and always... More

The Indigo Inn was absolutely fantastic. Every staff member we met was friendlier than the next. We arrived before check-in and the folks at the front desk offered to watched our bags and gave us tons of sightseeing tips and recommendations. They had fantastic tips and directed us to a hole-in-the-wall locally sourced restaurant where my husband and I had... More

My sister-in-law and I stayed in Cahrleston for 4 days last month and after much research, I chose to book the Indigo Inn. It was exactly the location I wanted, and was less expensive than many of the hotels located downtown.

While planning precious vacation time, I did a lot of research on Charleston hotels. I initially bypassed Indigo's site because its facade seemed so plain and I wanted something that looked historic! Then I dug a little deeper and learned of the hotel being once a warehouse for the lucrative indigo industry. In reading nearly all the reviews, I'm struck... More
