“Perfect Location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We just returned from a week-long stay at the Elliott House Inn and were extremely pleased! This was our third trip to Charleston in the past three years, so we have several other stays to compare this one to and couldn't have been happier. The location of the Elliott House Inn is unbeatable! The staff were very friendly and the maids provided daily room service which kept our space very clean. We loved relaxing in the courtyard's hot tub each evening. We were eating so much at the restaurants in Charleston at our two main meals each day so the light continental breakfast delivered promptly to our room each morning was simply perfect. We'd love to visit again!

Thank you for your wonderful comments about your recent stay. The small breakfast is a wonderful way to get the energy you need to start your day of exploration. It thrills me to see that the staff was able to help provide you with information. Lastly, the outdoor hot tub is an exceptional way to end your day and rest your body after spending the day walking through the beautiful streets of Charleston. Once again, thank you for taking the time to comment about your recent visit to Charleston and your stay with us.

my husband and I stayed at the Elliott house for the first times. the location was great and gave us the opportunity to walk around the highlights of Charleston without use of the car. the room that we stayed in was one of the prettiest rooms that I have had the opportunity to stay in. I would definitely choose this inn on my return visit to Charleston and would recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: all the rooms were great. no restaurant or fitness center though

Thank you so much for choosing The Elliott House Inn while visiting Charleston. I’m so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. You hit the nail on the head when you talked about the perfect location of The Elliott House Inn. The best thing we recommend to the guest is to just keep their car parked and explore the city. The parking lot across the street is just twenty dollars a day. Once again, thank you for taking the time to write about your recent stay with us, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

First time to Charlestown and Elliott House. We loved the Inn, a great way to experience the culture of the area instead of staying in a typical hotel. It is convenient to everything whether shopping, museums, or visiting historical sights. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay at the Inn and in the city the best. Thank you Neal and Becky we'll be back.

The Elliott House Inn is a quaint, cozy, cute little Inn. We enjoyed our stay very much. We loved the wine and cheese reception. The Inn is located in a convenient location with parking right across the street. Everything was within walking distance. We would definitely stay there again.

How nice of you! We appreciate you taking the time to comment on your recent stay with us. While parking is in such demand in the city, having a garage right across from the inn makes it a bit more easier for accessing. Please come and visit us again, we would love to have you back again!

This location is a low quality motel. We would've had a better time at a Holiday Inn. The food was boring and old. The court yard is dirty and not kept clean. The jacuzzi had leaves and lots of junk in the bottom (we could not get in it with all the scum).The housekeeping did not take the dirty towels, they only brought 2 more. They also did not make the bed. The water pressure in the shower is so poor that I had to use a brush to rinse out the shampoo - which also was not replaced after we used it all, yet were still staying more nights. The bed and pillows are very bad quality. The front desk was not friendly, not helpful in giving suggestions to outoftown guests. Also, you have to pay $20 a day to park! This location really dampened our honeymoon. We will not return to Charleston - mainly because of this "inn."

Room Tip: Choose a different place to stay - sad, but true.

I'm very sorry to read about your recent stay with us. I'm saddened to see that we did not meet your expectations. I understand that our property may not meets the needs of some guests looking for lodging. What is most disappointing is that none of these issues, very valid issues, were never addressed with the staff of the inn. Without knowing your displeasure, we do not have an opportunity to make things right for you while you are staying with us. I'm especially shocked to see that you will not be returning to the city of Charleston based on your stay with us; that was never our intent. I'm very sorry.

I would hope that potential guests that read this review take the time to read other posts from previous guests. I think that you'll find that the issues raised by this guest is not a pattern at our inn.

When we walked into room 28 I was immediately pleased, it was decorated beautifully, champage was on the table, it was a quiet room compared to some of the others we heard about. Evening reception with wine and cheese was a pleasant start to the evening and met several new friends.
Breakfast that was offered was light but just enough.
It is right in the heart of Charleston and within walking distance to most everything.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back of the property

Wow! Thank you for sharing with others about your experience at The Elliott House Inn. Room 28 is a fantastic room, just like all of other rooms, because each room has a different style all in its own. As you mentioned, the location is phenomenal. The Elliott House Inn is located right off the main shopping street, King Street, and is just footsteps away from World- Class dinning establishments. Once again, thank you for taking the time to convey your pleasure with The Elliott House Inn. We look forward to seeing you the next time you are visiting with friends here in Charleston.

The Elliott House Inn is an old Charleston inn at its finest. You couldn't ask for a better location in the French Quarter right next to the area South of Broad. The best restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and history in town are just outside your door. The staff was unbelievably friendly and helpful. The free breakfast that allowed you to order different types of food and beverages for delivery to your room or to the quaint courtyard at your requested time. They even warmed my banana nut muffin! The Elliott House Inn offers the authentic classy yet southern charm Charleston experience.
