Ideal location to waterfront and downtown. We loved the wonderful,creative design of the bathroom--one of the coolest we've stayed in at this price. The hotel also gave us a $5 credit for the coffee shop connected to the hotel. Staying here was truly a treat.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review describing us as a"real treat". Our location in the heart of Beaufort's historic district is indeed ideal and we are fortunate to have found ourselves right in the middle of a hub of activity which affords our guests easy access to dining, shopping, historic landmarks and beautiful waterfront vistas.

This wonderful little hotel is cleaner than clean. From check-in to check-out it was a pleasure to call the place our temporary home. Staff came to our car and ask to help with our luggage. Room amenities: fridge, real glass wine glasses, IPhone dock, bottle of red and chilled white wine for only $16 each, free bottled water, green toiletries,... More

A downtown motel refurbished in a spa motif to excellent effect. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Service is attentive and pleasant. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Beaufort. It is within walking distance of the waterfront park and the main shopping and dining drag.

Great little hotel, easy walking distance to food/drinks. Nice empty grassy lot around the corner for doggie potty breaks. Very friendly staff, modern rooms.....killer shower heads. Excellent coffee shop on the property.

So I agree that this fab hotel was probably a motel, and if you're reading this, you're probably thinking, "Ugh." But the photos you see on the website EXACTLY match the rooms. Plus the service is great (they booked me some time at the spa because I was leaving early to hit the channel islands). The City Java coffee house... More

We stumbled upon this hotel while returning from vacation. Excellent use of what was probably an ugly old concrete motel from the 50's or 60's. Most wouldn't have the imagination to do anything but bulldoze such a place, but this one is a keeper! Decor is modern and clean. Customer service is great. Nice fitness center and Citi Java and...

My wife and I have stayed multiple times at City Loft, while house hunting in Beaufort - a week in January, and a few days in April. What a great project, to transform a 50's downtown motel into a fabulous boutique hotel - inside and out.

Upon check in we were treated with respect and manners. The room was checked before we entered. We were escorted to the room. The hotel is SUPER clean, and full of luxury (bedding, shower, and full size tub) It is walking distance to most attractions. The whole crew was impressive

Our room was spotlessly clean, most attractive and well detailed -rain shower/soaking tub/ specialty bathroom lighting/ refrigerator/ bathrobes/ great bedding and pillows/ music doc for iPhone/ iron & ironing board/ island cruiser bikes included/ etc/etc. The staff was thorough, thoughtful and accommodating. This was much more than we were expecting . . . and a great location too.
