“We would highly recommend it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

We thoroughly enjoyed a two night stay at the City Loft. The room was clean, had all the modern amenities and style. The attention to guest service was excellent. From showing us to our room at check-in to the complimentary cookies. Very convenient--walking distance--to a choice of excellent restaurants and shopping. We would highly recommend it if you are visiting Beaufort.

This was our second time staying at the City Loft Hotel. We would go back again. Easy to park your car and have quick access to it. The staff is friendly and helpful, making us feel very welcome. They walked us to our room to make sure we settled-in easily. There were fresh baked cookies on our pillows. The spacious bedroom and bathrooms are updated, clean, quiet, and comfortable. Great night's sleep on a comfy, firm bed. The hotel is two short blocks from Bay Street, where you'll find lovely shops and an array of restaurants. We borrowed bikes and rode around the community. The quality is good and the price is reasonable.

Room Tip: We've stayed on first and second floor. Both are fine.

Given this value compared to other resorts in the region, it was delightful to stay at the City Loft Hotel in Beaufort, SC. Centrally located and easy walking distance to the water, bridge, boutique shops, and delicious fresh restaurants, you can't beat the address. Furthermore, the rooms are renovated from an original motor lodge to include a separate tub and shower in the bathroom (yes, a rain shower) and eco-friendly bath products. A comment would be to bring conditioner because the shampoo and conditioner are combined into one. Wonderful to have body wash/shower gel available though.

The hotel had technology that was probably a little too hip for the hotel guests. Difficult to get the televisions (yes, there is one in the bathroom like you would find in the 5-star resorts in Las Vegas) to work, but Manny was willing to show us how. Cookies in the evening were a delicious treat after a long day of traveling. And the 24 hour gym was packed with useful equipment and clean. Finally, the $5 certificate to the java news shop downstairs was appreciated. There are no coffee makers in the room so it is easy to slide downstairs for your coffee pleasures.

Furnishings were contemporary and comfortable. Because of the value, a 5 was given but would say that the place was not as clean as one would hope. There was a hair in the sheets and there was a strong cleaning supply smell as we entered the room. It seemed like floors were still wet so maybe the room had just been cleaned. Another critique was that the patrons were smoking at the cute tables which made walking around pretty unpleasant. The smoke blew up and it was pretty strong in such a small place. Enforcing the clean air act would be a much improved experience for guests. Parking is a bit tight but we were able to find a space - we very much appreciated the self-parking so we did not need to deal with valet.

Bicycles are a fabulous touch. Will be back and look forward to seeing the place on a warmer day. Great place for couples to unwind and celebrate anniversaries.

My family from 4 different areas stayed and met up at city loft to celebrate our Marine's graduation. City loft was amazing. From clean and comfy rooms to a wonderful shower we had a great trip. It was in the center of the downtown district with great restaurants and shopping in walking distance. The turn down service was a nice addition especially the wonderful cookies found on the pillow. They offered us all a free coffee in the morning and gave us a Marine discount. They even honored a December discount in January. I'm coming back and staying here again!

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review regarding City Loft. We are very fortunate to have Marine families visit with us on their family's very special day.

This was a return stay at this hotel, and we'll definitely be back. First, it's the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in - I wanted to take it home. I love the contemporary look of the room. The bathroom is just amazing: the rain shower - the soaking tub - the large vanity with drawers for all your things … LOVE it. There is also a great gym, and a coffee shop downstairs. There is a very small fridge in the rooms, too. Every hotel should be this comfortable!

Today I joined my husband for a business stay. I was expecting the usual configuration for a hotel suite but when I drove up it was so nifty to see the ingenuity and detail involved in this tucked away place. The paint colors are soothing and modern but not too much so that they will be outdated soon. This is noticeable from the first step on the stairway, outside and in the rooms. Love how many amenities are utilized in well-organized space in the room. The bathroom is wonderful. Love the features that make a guest feel extra special. I have stayed in larger hotels and not had the attention to detail City Loft has provided in this suite. Well done, folks. Cannot wait to tell others about this place. Oh...and I forgot to mention that the location is fantastic; it is right in the middle of quaint/historic Beaufort.

This is a wonderful hotel that is wonderfully priced! The rooms are modern and very comfortable. The bathrooms are absolutely fantastic. Location couldn't be better and is walking distance to tons of restaurants and shops. It is really inspiring to stay in a place that's so nice and so reasonably priced.

Room Tip: They're all great.
