As a single female traveler, I spent several hours searching and researching a vacay site where I would feel safe. I needed a location that was within my budget, would provide me with an opportunity to rest, and most of all, provide safety. I found it at the Middleton Inn. Middleton Inn is located on the Middleton Place Plantation.
I must admit, although I was comfortable at the inn, I didn't have the nerve to walk the wooded paths. I look forward to a return trip where I will explore more of the property's features such as kayaking and horseback riding.
Be sure to take the tours of Middleton Place and the gardens. It's included in your room rate so take advantage of it.
On the disappointing side was the bathroom. The staff called it black grout but to me it looked like mold. This was on the wall, nearest the ceiling. It did appear they used black grout for the tile area, not the best choice for aesthetic purposes.
The location of my room was away from the river. Which for me, was a nick on the safety meter. Rooms near the registration office are actually set apart from main lodge/hub of the inn's activity. My room assignment was probably due to my Expedia-packaged deal. As a matter of fact, the registration profile listed "Expedia Room Only." No opportunity for a gratis upgrade with that remark! LOL
The property is simply beautiful. The continental breakfast coupled with the evening wine and cheese soiree made each day, a welcoming experience. Connecting with the river was a special moment, as well.
All in all, this was the best vacation ever! I have already booked for my return visit.
BEST RESTUARANT: Thanks to Greg Fisher, GM, Ashley, Heather, and the receptionists. The hen and farmer's salad were my entrees of choice. I tried to vary my eating choices but kept landing at the Middleton Inn's restaurant for fine food, a relaxed atmosphere, and great service.
