The Middleton Inn is in a beautiful setting along the Ashley River. I loved the look of the Inn, very modern in such an historical area.The breakfast was very nice with a wonderful view of the river and woods. We stayed in November so the fireplace in our room was a nice touch and kept us cozy at night. I loved the gardens and the historic house tour which was included in your stay. Also loved the evening reception with cocktails cheese fruit and a homemade dip and crackers.The only negative issue was that the room was a little worn and the outside buildings looked like they needed maintenance,such as painting and minor repairs. They also should update their TV's with a nice flatscreen.The drive to Charleston was a little far to me but we came here to get awawy so I didn't mind the drive.I would recomend this hotel for couples who want something diffrent and want to get awawy in a peaceful setting.We stayed in November of 2011 so they may have resolved some of our issues.
