Very friendly service, nicely decorated rooms, we could choose what we each wanted for breakfast the evening before, fresh cookies always available, easy parking. Our balcony overlooked a bay and the view was very nice. Close to the main street with all the restaurants & also walking distance to the public beach. It was a very relaxing stay!

I stayed at Waters Edge for one night after spending most of the past three days driving around South Carolina for a work trip. I was flying out of Charleston the next afternoon and had one night and morning to experience Folly beach and some well deserved relaxation. Despite arriving two hours earlier than I originally thought I would, my...

The three bedroom condominium was the perfect size to share with acquaintances who did not know each other very well prior to our visit to Folly Beach for a wedding. Plenty of comfortable shared space and well appointed private rooms for all.

Wow! We couldn't have found a better place to spend our honeymoon than at the Waters Edge Inn! Everything about our stay was perfect from the first moment we walked into the door until the day we left. We arrived in our room to find a fresh bottle of champagne, wine glasses, and a note of congratulations on our marriage....

Why stay in yet another cookie-cutter hotel when the Water's Edge Inn is available? It's a charming little venue hidden away amongst the flora and fauna of Folly. (Even friends who are natives didn't know it was there.) We fell in love with it. Our room with the fireplace, private screened-in porch, and jetted tub with rainfall shower was SUBLIME,...
