This inn has all the charm of a bed and breakfast (it feels like you're staying in an historic home, there is excellent food selection for happy hour and breakfast, small and friendly), but all the comforts of a modern hotel (clean, comfortable rooms/beds, quiet). It's the perfect blend - very well done. I wish there were more places like... More

Stayed here in early January a couple years back and really loved it. We stayed a total of 4 nights and ended up staying in 3 different rooms. We thought the breakfast's were great and really loved having the happy hour. The lady running the inn was extremely helpful and gave us great recommendations for dining!

Water's Edge Inn is AMAZING! It is the perfect getaway. This trip we stayed in Villa 14. The staff was amazing and took us anywhere we wanted to go via golf cart.

The Villas of Water's Edge Inn are the perfect choice for a visit to Folly and we are so glad you enjoyed them! With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, they are great for a family excursion to the beach or even a gathering of friends. Each villa is tastefully adorned and very cozy. We are glad you have enjoyed your... More

This place is great from the moment you walk in the door until you reluctantly check out. We were greated by an extremely friendly young lady and given some great tasting Folly Punch as soon as we walked in. She showed us to our room and offered to bring up our luggage. Great service! We wanted a relaxing few days... More

We were greeted by Camille and her wonderful, welcoming smile on a Sunday afternoon! This was our wedding weekend and was our retreat from our guests!

What a great place to stay. Great room, location and staff. This was our first visit to the Charleston area and after the long ride from Massachusetts we could not have asked or found anything better. Looking forward to our next visit.

We booked our rooms here based on reviews of other hotels here in the area. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised to see how nice the Waters Edge Inn is. The check in was easy and the facilities are wonderful. Everything is clean and new and if Anthony Melchiorri were to visit this property I believe he would be impressed.
