“Great room, amenities and amazing location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Park your car or better yet, don't bother bringing one, from this hotel, you will never need it! The bed was comfortable, the room spacious and fully updated. Apparently this hotel went through a complete remodel in 2011 and has come out looking and feeling wonderful. The staff is friendly and they provide a number of special touches which include wine and cheese at 5;00 every day and breakfast in your room or in the courtyard.
We took breakfast in the courtyard all three days and thoroughly enjoyed it. Each night you get to select what you will have for breakfast the next morning, what time and where you would like to have it, so you can change it up each day depending on your mood.
Anywhere you want to go in Charleston is an easy walk from this hotel on a quiet street sandwiched between two of Charleston's finest restaurants (Husk and 82 Queen). In fact, you can have room service delivered from 82 Queen. Husk was a special treat, we enjoyed brunch on Sunday after church.
At the end of a busy day of tourism, stop by the front office and have a little Brandy before you head to bed. A perfect treat to end your day at a lovely home away from home.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room in the place!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share about your recent stay with us. As you mentioned, we do not have any parking at the hotel, but there is a lot across the street that is just twenty dollars a day, and who needs a car while you are in Charleston. The Inn is surrounded by fantastic restaurants and shopping hot spots. The lobby is warm and inviting as you try to plan out your trip for all things Charleston. Once again, thank you for taking the time to share with others about your recent stay. We look forward to hearing from you again soon.

Our stay was memorable thanks to the staff, the accommodations, and location. Situated in the heart of the historic district, the Elliot House is ideally located for all those wishing to explore all that this charming city has to offer. Enjoy breakfast in bed or the charming courtyard. Slept like a log and loved the spacious shower. Neal is a font of Charleston's place in U.S. history. I can hardly wait to book my next trip.

Room Tip: Choose a courtyard view. Beautiful.

Friendly people, immaculate room, delicious breakfast brought to our room-we will be back!! Loved the courtyard & Jacuzzi. Wine tasting in the evening. It was located within walking distance to a lot of the things we wanted to see. We found the Elliott House Inn on Tripadvisor and the reviews were what made us choose it.

I give this place an average ranking because I think there are better options for the $$. This was my second visit to Charleston and 2nd time staying at a B&B. My room was on the first floor so I could hear the people above me. The room was nicely furnished. Love the 4 poster Queen size bed. However, the room was not well illuminated. Maybe it was on purpose, but I kept wanting to switch on more lights. Breakfast is provided, but very basic. I ate out instead. The courtyard isn't anything fancy, but they do have table and chairs and refreshments are served. You're on your own with parking. There really isn't anywhere to pull up and park in front of the hotel so I parked a blocked away. The location, however, is perfect. Everything's within walking distance. I parked at a meter and only moved my car to drive over to Sullivan's Island for the day. Overall, good place to stay if location is most important. But compared to John Rutledge Inn, you can get more bang for your buck.

Room Tip: Rooms have hardwood floors. Avoid first floor rooms if you don't want to hear people above you.

Celebrated birthday with an in town stay. Neat small tucked away B&B near the market and shops in Charleston. Nicely appointed rooms and all was well. Loved it. Perfect for anniversary stay over as it has a romantic appeal from the courtyard to the four poster high beds. Internet free and works. Reasonable for downtown in CHS especially given its charm.

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.
