“Elliott Inn Inspires”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

This inn is in a perfect location to stroll around the streets of Charleston and visit its shops, restaurants, markets, historical buildings and just about everything. We were upgraded to a deluxe room which was the picture of southern hospitality. Everything in the room was provided for your comfort, and although we could stay only one night, had we been able to stay longer, all the comforts of home were provided. The room was immaculately clean, and a choice of complimentary breakfast was delivered to your room at your chosen time. A fresh yogurt and granola parfait, fresh fruit, coffee and a croissant perfectly hit the spot for commencing our day. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly, and in the evening, there is a wine social with cheese, crackers and wine. Desptie a downpour the evening we stayed, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves talking to other guests, and later that evening after we strolled to dinner, we returned to the Elliott Inn and soaked in a soothing jacuzzi in a courtyard surrounded by lush vegetation. The entire experience here is one which would most definitely tempt even those who usually avoid inns and/or bed and breakfasts to give one a try. You will be pleasantly surprised by the genuine interest in providing you comfort, but allowing you the individual privacy to make your stay memorable.

We stayed at the Elliot House Inn for our anniversary trip to Charleston. This was a beautiful place and the staff were very helpful. The location was very convenient to restaurants, bars, attractions, and more. They offer a jacuzzi (which we did not use) which was used by some of the patrons. They also offer a wine and cheese time in the evening. There is also an elevator to take your luggage to the top floors.

Wow! We are so glad that you enjoyed your experience here in Charleston. Charleston is a great place to spend an anniversary. It is always amazing to hear that our staff was able to be helpful to you while you were here to enjoy this beautiful city. Even though you did not personally enjoy the outdoor hot tub, it is one of the wonderful amenities that we do offer our guests. We hope that if your travels ever bring you back to Charleston that you choose to visit with us again and take advantage of that Jacuzzi!

Matthew the nite time manger was awesome when we were there and when we were not. My wife left her shoes in the room and Matthew kept up with them until we returned 6 weeks later. The location is perfect and the rooms newly renovated. And the courtyard is beautiful. What's not to love??
Very satisfied

We stumbled onto this gem of a hotel when we used the parking garage across the street. Our plans were to just spend the day and drive back to Charlotte but as soon as we saw the outside we had to know more. We walked into the office and was greeted by a very nice and well dressed gentleman named Neil. When we asked Neil about the rates he told us he could give us the best available rate of $129 which we immediately took. After we decided to stay, Neil which is a history major graduate, gave us a hand written guided tour on a handout map they have in the office! Not only is the service impeccable but the rooms are very, very nice. They also have wine and cheese from 5-6 and continental breakfast delivered to your room. What more could you ask for? Oh, and they have a courtyard with a huge jacucci ! Great staff, great rooms, great location.

Wow! Thank you for spending the time to write such a thoughtful review of The Elliott House Inn. The location, the ambience, and the service provided is what truly stands out about The Elliott House Inn. I’m glad that you were greeted with so warmly, by Neal. Neal is great for being able to talk about history and restaurants in this wonderful city. Also, he provides walking tours for the guest if he is available or someone asks about them. We are quite fortunate to have him apart of our team! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment about your recent stay. We hope to see you again soon, since you aren’t to far away!

My friend and I stayed here for 5 nights the end of January. We each had a room and the rooms were lovely and decorated individually. The staff was very helpful and when the weather turned cold the last day we were there, the gal who delivered the breakfast tray offered me her coat for the day! As long as I had it back before she got off duty. Now, I ask you. Has that ever happened to you? Certainly not to me before. My only complaint was the air conditioning had a regulator on it so I could never get it as cool as I would have liked at night, but it was tolerable. Not sure how it would feel in the heat of the summer however. The Inn is within walking distance of everything and, walk we did. The restaurant next door will do room service, but we never tried it. Too many fabulous places to eat in the area. I would recommend this Inn for an intimate stay.

Room Tip: Get the rooms in the back of the courtyard for a quieter night.

Thank you so much for your kind words about The Elliott House Inn. I’m glad that the staff was very helpful during you stay, even offering the coat of her back on a chilly day.
The majority of the rooms have AC window units and we do have a regulator that is set to go no lower than 68 degrees. Once again, thank you for taking the time to comment about your recent stay at the inn, and we look forward to your return.

The lovely courtyard with hot tub immediately makes you feel relaxed and ready for fun. Then you enter your charming room which is well appointed and comfortable and get unpacked and prepare to explore this area which is known as the French Quarter. You are only a few steps from the Four Corners of Law and a great opportunity to have a meandering walk thru history.

Taking advantage of our outdoor heated Jacuzzi is certainly a nice option to have when relaxing after a busy day of sightseeing in the city! I appreciate your comments regarding the comforts of your guest room. Our owners take great pride in offering great accommodations that meet the needs of each of guests. Come back and visit again soon – the weather is starting to warm up again as we prepare for a beautiful spring season in Charleston.

I go to Charleston often and have stayed several places but always come back to E-House! Location just can't be beat and courtyard and hot tub are big sellers! And the staff is the best. I have upcoming trip and sure hope E House has rate within my per diem as Charleston isn't Charleston with out E House! I am sure I have been at E House 20+ times and was so sad during the down time for renovation. 2x since reopen!, Welcome back EHI!!!

Room Tip: All are PERFECT. No going wrong!

Nothing is more exciting than hearing and seeing from returning guests. As mentioned, the “E House” went under extensive renovations from 2009-2011. The inn has: new bathrooms, new floors, new furniture and bedding, new bicycles, and complimentary wireless. Thank you for coming back to the “E House” and we can't wait to have you back again!!
