The room was up to date, clean, and nicely appointed, with a large bathroom that included a large soaking tub and spacious walk-in shower. The location is excellent, with easy walking distances to restaurants and downtown attractions. The little bag of freshly made cookies that hung on the outside door knob each morning was a nice touch. The coffee shop on the downstairs level is convenient and offers fresh pastries to go with specialty coffee offerings. We will stay there again.

My girlfriend and I have stayed at City Loft Hotel many times over the past couple of years and 4 times just this summer. We consistently enjoy our experience here from a fantastic staff who are so friendly and accommodating to the most convenient location to the charming downtown of Beaufort. The rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated and large shower and soaking tub in each bathroom are a nice way to end a day at the beach or touring the area. Every detail down to the high quality bath gels to coupons for the best cup of coffee ever at the affiliated coffee shop to bicycles available for use free of charge indicates a conscientious management committed to providing patrons with a quality experience . We will continue to make this a top getaway destination !

I've been lucky enough to stay in some nice places, but none do it better than City Loft. We made a reservation online; when we arrived everything was set up. Check in was very friendly and down to earth. No canned "thank you's" The lady at check in asked questions about our familiarity with Beaufort in case we needed suggestions on things to do. Her last words as we were leaving the office, "anything you need, just dial 0" , affirmed that this place really cares and aimed to make our stay comfortable. We had a two room suit that was nothing short of lavish. Two bathrooms, one with a huge walk in shower, the other with a deep tub/shower, lighted and with high end fixtures, tile, countertops and other amenities. The bedroom had plenty of storage, USB outlets, great lighting, plenty of towels, cloths and mats. The sitting room had a couch, chair, end tables, long counter for laying our things. Everything was clean and very well thought out. We unpacked, changed and when we opened the door to take a walk, there was a thank you card and a bag of cookies hanging off of our door. Little things like that are how a place gets from 4 to 5 stars. There was an outdoor seating area, umbrellas, couches, tables but the final touch was the green, very convincing artificial turf in the lot that made us feel like we were not downtown but sitting on a quiet lawn. We had UberEats deliver us supper and stayed in the outside area to eat. It was so relaxing and quiet. We enjoyed that so much, we did the same for breakfast. Getting takeout from the breakfast/brunch place across the street and thoroughly enjoyed starting our day with some great food outdoors, just steps from our room. This place is aesthetically pleasing, in a great location, with people that care. We'll be back.

I had the pleasure of staying at the City Loft Hotel for two nights. The room is well appointed with a very comfortable bed and lots of pillows. The bathroom is exceptional with a huge bathtub and a separate large shower with six shower heads. Then there is the $ 5 coupon that comes with the room to be sure you get your morning coffee at Java City Cafe on the bottom floor of the hotel. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. I will be back.

My husband and I made our first ever trip to Beaufort for a mini vacation over the July 4th weekend for a three day weekend, and after a lot of searching I landed on City Loft Hotel for our lodging. We couldn’t have been happier with our stay! I wanted to surprise my husband with a bottle of wine and chocolates on arrival, and they had them waiting in our room for us. From start to finish the staff were wonderful and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was safe in light of COVID-19 as well. The room was never entered except for us during our stay (even by house staff), and the evening turn down/cookie service was replaced by a cute bag of cookies on our room door each night. They have wine and beer available to your room at any hour of the day. The free beach bikes were a nice touch for getting around town, and the on site coffee shop was super cute and had delicious coffees and pastries each morning. The location can’t be beat, and the room was super clean, the amenities and decor modern and sleek, and the bed super comfortable. We will definitely be back to Beaufort, and have already told our family about this hotel! Thank you for making our first trip away from home in a while one that was comfortable, felt safe, and exceeded expectations even amid weird circumstances with the coronavirus.

Stayed at City Loft about four times now. All visits have been excellent. The location is great, reasonable rates, very clean - and pandemic cautious. The staff is accommodating and the owner is very plugged in. Jump on a bike and take a peaceful ride downtown, or walking distance is easy to most location. Will come again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at City Loft Hotel, from check-in to check-out. All staff members were genuinely friendly and helpful. Our room was practical and pleasantly decorated/furnished, with a super comfy bed and a generously sized, well appointed bathroom. The hotel supplies free water, as well as red & white wine by the bottle at reasonable prices. We tried the white and found it very good.
There is no tea & coffee making equipment in the rooms, but a great coffee shop downstairs that makes super tasty coffee. What’s more, we received a $5 coffee shop voucher upon check-in.
The location is perfect, smack bang in the center of downtown, with free parking!

As a remote worker, I was going a bit stir crazy at home and needed a little pamper me day in town. City Loft was the PERFECT getaway! The large and inviting tub was calling my name to enjoy a relaxing lavender bubble bath wile I ate my black cherry gelato and drank my pinot noir. I was in heaven! The rain show afterward rinsed off my face mask and the bubbles before I climbed into the insanely comfortable bed for a much needed desired night's sleep. City Loft is the perfect spot for those living in town needing a "spoil yourself" getaway and a bit of rest and relaxation. I woke up ready to hit the clean and quiet gym. Already anticipating my February visit. I may do this monthly!

We loved staying at this hotel. The room is small but very clean and modern. The bathroom in particular has a roomy shower and large bathtub. THe bed is an extremely comfortable and cozy king. TV is HD with plenty of channels. A small refrigerator sits below the countertop. There is plenty of storage space and a comfy chair and lamp to read by. The staff is extremely friendly. The location is steps away from the Main Street and waterfront. And the main st has plenty of restaurants and shops. The small coffee shop in the total has delicious coffee and mighty amazing pastries! Did I mention cookies at our door every after noon! Another important feature is FREE PARKING.
The only draw back for staying here is that it can be noisy especially during daytime hours as it is close to a busy street. But at night traffic is minimal in this small town so it doesn’t interfere with sleeping.

The owner ( who was on site) has put so much thought into the design and comfort of this hotel it is quite outstanding. Located jus off the Main Street, a stones throw from the promenade, it has the best designed bedrooms and bathrooms I’ve seen in recent years. Nice areas to sit outside, and ample parking. By far the best small hotel in Beaufort.
