My husband, myself, my brother, and my 10-year old niece spent two nights here. We were in the Middleton building which meant we were right by the pool and the Lodge which provides bar service, lunchtime sandwiches, and happy hour, as well as some other festive treats. It was excellent to go in early June, as we had the entire pool to ourselves for most of the time which the 10-year old loved. We really enjoyed the access to the gorgeous gardens, the speaking tours, the horseback riding, and the restaurant. Also, it was only a short walk to the excellent hot breakfast buffet, included in the room price. All of us had such a good time that we are planning to return same time, next year.
The Inn at Middleton exceeded my expectations. Our spacious, beautifully appointed, affordable room was surrounded by nature. When we opened the door to the room I gasped out loud, amazed at the comfort that it was going to afford and the overall ambiance of the place. I will try to include a picture or two. We walked a trail from the room to the restaurant that was just wonderful in every way and the next morning attended a buffet breakfast at the Lake House. The entire experience was magical. I would definitely return and urge others to have this tremendous experience.
We chose the Inn due to our love ofmid-century architecture and a desire to stay somewhere remote and romantic - every expectation was met! The grounds are wonderful, the people were nice, the food was good. We were celebrating our 35th anniversary and they made it very special- upgraded us to the fabulous honeymoon suite and greeted us with Champagne and chocolates. We are already dreaming of our next visit, maybe in another season to experience the flowers and/or the fireplaces!
Staying at the inn was a wonderful way to experience the quiet beauty of nature. The admission to Middleton Place is included and it's only a short walk from the inn. Wish entry to the house museum had been included as well. Highly recommend taking the tour "Beyond the Fields: Enslavement at Middleton Place". We enjoyed swimming in the large pool at the inn and the breakfast was plentiful and very good.
First the good stuff… The Inn at Middleton Place is in a beautiful location, within easy strolling distance of the lovely gardens. The architecture is interesting and there is a nice outdoor pool (unheated, but that was fine). Now the not so good bit. What was an award winning building in 1987 is now in sore need of refurbishment. The room that we stayed in had so many things wrong it’s hard to list them - but it included many cracked tiles in the bathroom, a shower that didn’t work correctly, a dimmer switch that was broken and ill fitting blinds that made it impossible to black out the bedroom at night. Oh, and the phone in the room which didn’t work, which I reported at registration but wasn’t fixed. We ate in the restaurant at Middleton Place, which was reasonable quality but pricey. We stayed in one of the cheapest rooms but it was still poor value given the condition of the property. My overall feeling was that the place is trading on past glories and purporting to offer an upscale product, which sadly it isn’t. Decided to give this feedback as no-one asked me how my stay had been when we checked out.…
Recently stayed at the Inn, to introduce another couple to our place of rest and relaxation. We were super excited to get one of the renovated rooms. The upgrades to the bathroom were very nice, the shower is much more user-friendly, and I love the new double sinks in the bathroom. Lots of upgrades on the grounds. Adirondack chairs in all the best places with a perfect view of the water. New furnishings around the pool. We had a lovely dinner at the restaurant, and the best night of sleep we have had in months. If you’re looking for a quick getaway, this place is a winner.I
My wife and I, in our 70's, stayed for 3 nights at the end of April. I wish we would have stayed here longer rather than moving to downtown Charleston. The grounds are wonderful. We went horseback riding which was a treat, toured the gardens and stables, pet the animals, ate in the restaurant twice, and stepped around the alligators. The history of this plantation is moving and amazing. Our room was wonderful, looking out over the river. Breakfast had many options and was excellent. I wouldn't stay anyplace else. Thank you so much, Phil and Marilyn from California.
I gave 4 stars because there are a few problems with the inn. I would still stay here but want to mention them. There needs to be more signs to the different buildings. We were not the only ones trying to spot the room numbers. The breakfast is in a separate building that needs better signage. Upstairs rooms have a very tall steep outside stairway that luggage has to be carried up. The tile bath is very strange. The edge is very thick and we decided that stepping in/out could easily be slick in wet conditions. We sat and swung our legs over. TV did not carry ABC which is strange but minor. You are able to use your own streaming services which we did. This could be a techie challenge for some. Now to say that the location and access to Middleton Place is simply wonderful. We walked over early and late just to see the views and nature and took several of the included tours in the daytime. Tons of various birds and a number of alligators. This outweighs the few problems for us. We were past azaleas but that would be a great time to come. Including the plantation in the price of the room is certainly a bonus.…
This building is a three story warehouse with molded wood shutters in the bedroom of 145. Although the chairs are beautiful wood, they are the most uncomfortable ones on which I have sat. The room is on the third floor with no elevator . The concrete stairs are very steep and the steel railings slippery when wet. This place would never pass handicapped access laws. Mattress was very comfortable.
In contrast to the historic Middleton Plantation, is the Inn. Located a short walking distance, the modern inn buildings will be a visual delight to fans and disciples of modern architecture. We chose to stay there as it was an unusual hotel property, and its adjacency to the plantation. It’s not a trendy ‘we have breakfast too’. Be prepared to seek out your room as it may be on one of three levels - stair access only. The Inn buildings are clustered, and entry is gated from the reception building. The beds were great, the windows were expansive, but all have shutters for privacy. Also included was a very nice buffet breakfast in the Lodge building over looking a pond.
