“Excellent Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2007

We had a terrible view overlooking some wires but because the inn was fully booked they could not change our room but otherwise, we can't complaint, given its price. We slept on their Temperpedic mattresses which are supposed to be really comfortable however we thought they were too firm. We would have preferred a conventional mattress. Very convenient location to restaurants and to the walk along the harbor. The property was clean and well run. Loved the afternoon wine and cheese and the evening cookies.

  • Liked — Updated style and cleanliness of the general areas and rooms
  • Disliked — The view from my room sucked and sometimes valet parking took almost 20 minutes to get the car around even though we pay to park the car supposedly in their garage which is right there.

Although some of the reviews mention the construction we never heard it although it was going on during our stay. I was concerned at first because we were staying in room 108 which is just off the atrium and main desk. We never heard a single noise! The breakfast in bed is fabulous and so was the bed itself. Afternoon tea and evening wine and cheese was perfect. Milk and cookies at night was just the icing on the cake. The staff was friendly and helpul. Let me reccommend a short drive out to Dreyton Place plantation and for the dinner experience of your life make reservations early fo the Pennisula Grill dowtown.

This hotel has the amenities of a hotel and the relaxed feeling of a B&B. Our room was very comfortable and overlooked the harbor with a nice size balcony. The staff was most accomdating, friendly and most helpful. I want to give a special thank you to Bert on making our first stay in Charleston a memorable one. The wine and cheese hour was a great way to meet the other guests who came from various parts of the Us and Europe. I recommend if you stay at this hotel request a harbor view room. It is beautiful and with every breakfast served in your room, eating on the balcony was great.

  • Liked — The view in our room, the staff and the breakfast room service
  • Disliked — air conditioning a little noisey

My husband and I stayed at the HarbourView Inn, (Charleston, SC) last week and we absolutely loved it. The rooms were upscale, the staff jumped at our beck and call, and they delivered breakfast to our room every morning.
Highly recommend staying here!!

What a gem this place is! Professional and friendly, the staff made sure their guests had a comfortable stay. Our room was beautiful, overlooking Charleston harbor and the waterfront park. Breakfast was healthy, delicious and complimentary . Easy walk to the historic district and the rest of downtown. Can't say enough about the high standards here.

The Harbourview Inn was all we expected and more! My husband and I stayed there for a day and a half while traveling to Florida to get on a cruise. The staff could not have been nicer. The room was beautiful! We stayed in the older wing and it was fantastic. We loved the brick wall. The view of the city from the roof was breathtaking, not to mention the view of the bridge and harbour from the pier across the street. We parked in the garage when we arrived and walked the whole rest of the time we were there. We will definitely be back! The Harbourview Inn was absolutely WONDERFUL!! Best hotel experience I have ever had!

We loved the Harbourview Inn !!!! Have stayed in many hotels as we have a child at the College of Charleston. Harbourview is by far the best hotel we have stayed in. Everyone was so nice, helpful. It was quiet yet right in the heart of historic Charleston. Our room was wonderful. comfortable. We loved the feel of the room with the old brick exposed from the original historic Inn we presume. Tall ceilings, internet, continental bfast in the am was perfect-excellent coffee. We hope to stay there again !!!!
