“Anniversary Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

My Wife and I spent a couple of days in Beaufort at the City Loft Hotel. It was perfect! Great room, in walking distance to great restaurants, and shopping etc. Highly recommend this hotel, and the whole Beaufort area.

Thought we would try out this highly rated little hotel and glad we did. A very clever remodeling job of an older motel - really well thought in design and convenience. One can walk everywhere in town from this location, along the river - everywhere. Highly Recommend!

We spent 3 nights at City Loft Hotel and can't recommend this little gem enough! Location was perfect; we walked to town for restaurants and shopping. The hotel staff were very accommodating and attentive. The room was great! Oversize tub, large shower with overhead rainfall shower head, all high-end fixtures. The bedding was luxurious with several different pillow styles to choose from. Great gym open 24/7 and the coffee shop on premise was an extra bonus ($5 gift card per day of stay). Nice outside sitting areas for Sudoku and coffee every morning. Really delightful stay...our poodle loved it too...he made lots of friends (2-legged and 4). We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with any room. Ours was downstairs in the middle and it was very quiet except for...

I love City Loft Hotel. Not only is it in the quaint town of Beaufort close to restaurants, shopping, etc. but they have the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. I even tracked down the pillows (made locally) and bought some for myself.

I've been coming to Beaufort for quite some time and have always stayed at the chain hotels. On a whim I decided to check out the Loft for the first time. It was everything the other positive reviews say about it. It could easly be compared to an upscale bouteque hotel in downtown San Francisco.

We were really excited to go on vacation for our Anniversary and had many recommendations to stay here. Our stay was 6/6/14-6/8/14 The room was great and clean and the cookies and weather card were great additions. The coffee shop is also a great addition and it's not just your generic hotel coffee shop. They have homemade muffins, cookies, and great drinks and the staff is really friendly and accomodating.
I think the bathroom in room 101 is handicap accessible with no bathtub, but does have a very large open walk-in shower in it's place which is awesome. My only reason for the 4/5 review is that we didn't sleep a wink both nights which was so disappointing. There were guests staying there that were part of a wedding and were so loud/disruptive/drunk/obnoxious in front of all the doors Friday and Saturday night. On Friday night, I was about to call the front desk after this had gone on for some time and someone (not sure if it was management or another guest) told them to be quiet. Saturday, the same thing happened and once the larger crowd distributed, a few girls sat at the chairs in front of our room and had loud, dramatic conversations until about 3am. I was going to mention this to when I checked out, and it was, "Did you have any charges at the coffee shop?" -No "Did you partake in our house wine in your room?" -No Ok, you're all set. Have a safe trip. No mention of, "did you enjoy your stay?"
All in all, the location, room, bed, cleanliness, amenities were all great, but unfortunately, the people staying at our hotel kind of ruined it for us. Yes, we had a great time, but not restful. We have a 14 month old and were looking forward to R&R, not crazy drunk guests yelling outside of our room through the morning hours.

Thank you for taking the time to write a very detailed and candid review of your experience at City Loft. It is evident that we failed in our quest to quiet guests that affected your stay. Your review prompted a review of our internal policy as to the potential of a similar situation arising again. Having small children myself, I am keenly aware of the desire to get a good night's rest and am disappointed we failed to deliver that for you. We will work hard every day to monitor the property for any unnecessary disturbances and will keep intact a facility which you otherwise gave high marks.
My apologies and I ask that you give us another try in the not too distant future.

We stayed at City Loft while visiting 'Beautiful Beaufort by the Sea'. Whether sinking into the inviting soaking tub or the heavenly bed, we felt very pampered and renewed after a busy day.

The room was fantastic! From the freshly-baked cookies and Coffee Shop coupons to the robes, comfy bed, and over-sized shower and tub, everything was perfect! Did I mention the TV in the bathroom :) Wine was available in the room as well!

Enjoy a horse-drawn carriage tour, bike ride (rentals available from the hotel) or walk through the Historic District or on the Beaufort Waterfront (both just a block away!) after a quick breakfast/lunch stop at the Coffee Shop. AND, for beach-goers, Hunting Island State Park and Beach is just a short 20-minute car ride from Beaufort!

City Loft deserves a lot of praise for providing such a wonderfully-delightful experience!!

Your review appears to have captured the essence of City Loft Hotel and all that Beaufort has to offer. From horse drawn carriages in the historic district to Hunting Island state park, to our baked cookies and TVs in the bathroom- thanks for your broad based review and compliments on the hotel. We appreciate your taking the time to write about City Loft and Beaufort itself.
