“Perfect place for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

A great place to stay in Charleston! I was a little leery coming here after reading some reviews from tripadvisor.com, but this place is perfect. Do you get a great view when you look out your window? No, but you can't beat the price; especially staying downtown. Everything is within walking distance, and the free Charleston trolley has a stop a block away. The parking is unfortunate, but you'll get the same at any hotel down here. The rooms have clean linens, comfortable bed, nice bathroom, and friendly staff. The rooms are "small", but there is plenty to do in Charleston rain or shine so there's no excuse to be sitting inside anyways. This was our first time in Charleston and we will definitely be back to the Elliot House Inn.

First trip to Charleston.... and the Inn met expectations on period charm. The room was very clean & comfortable,(the bathroom was nicely updated. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The only negative because we booked last minute) was we stayed at street level in a street facing room so we had noise from the restaurant next door until very late and the delivery and garbage truck noise starts up around 6:30am. I would stay again, but book early and request a room further away from the street.

I’m glad that you enjoyed your stay with us at The Elliott House Inn. I’m sorry that the early morning traffic woke you up. Like you mentioned, we just had limited space left at the time when you booked the reservation, so we did not have any options to move you further away from the street. I’m glad that you were able to enjoy your experience here not only in Charleston, but with us at The Elliott House Inn. The next time you stay with us, we will do our best to put you in a room a little further away from the noise. Thank you so much for complementing the staff, and telling others how much you enjoyed your stay.

Nicely surprised with this quaint little inn. Love that it was conveniently located. Very clean and hospitable. Enjoyed the court yard area for both the wine & cheese and breakfast. Also thought the bottle of champagne was a "nice touch" upon arrival (we had a Low Country Getaway Package). This package also included a carriage ride (a must!) and $75 towards dinner at 82 Queen Street. Well worth the cost. Highly recommend this Inn.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment about your recent stay in Charleston at The Elliott House Inn. The Lowcountry Getaway is a fantastic package that has accommodations for both Savannah and Charleston. While you are staying at The Elliott House Inn the package includes a dinner at 82 Queen, which is a fantastic dinning establishment next door and a public carriage tour around the city, which gives you an overview of Charleston’s past. We hope to see you again the next time you are passing through Charleston. Once again, thank you for taking the time to comment about your recent stay with us.

My experience truly started the moment I phoned to make reservations...the fellow I spoke with was super helpful, friendly and most accommodating! Since it had been a few years since I had stayed at the Inn, I had a ton of questions!

I love the charming courtyard! It is a beautiful spot to enjoy the afternoon wine reception the the Inn provides, and it is most wonderful in the morning while you drink your coffee and enjoy breakfast! Protected from the hustle and bustle of the vibrant city, yet steps away at the same time!

Cordial and welcoming staff, period-style room decor with modern bath and digital conveniences! Wonderful location within walking distance to most everything I had to do!

Returning next month...and I'm looking forward to my upcoming visit already!

Room Tip: When traveling with a spouse or special someone, book a King -- the Queen was more than adequate for...

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

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.
