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.
