Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here 2 days midweek and were very happy with our room. It was room 27 which is a corner room. Very clean, beautifully decorated and even had a small kitchenette which was handy for cold drinks after waking in the heat all day! (not sure if all rooms have kitchenettes or if we were just lucky). Great price through Trip Advisor. Excellent location to walk to everything. Yes, breakfast was simple, but i liked that we could have something light to start our day. Good coffee!Really enjoyed our stay.

Thank you for your kind words about the inn. Room 27 is a wonderful room just like all of our rooms, because each room is unique. Some rooms have private patios or balconies, and some offer a wonderful view of Queen Street. The breakfast is small, but does offer a variety of different options. Furthermore, we always have coffee out in our spacious courtyard as early as 6:30 in the morning. Once again, thank you for choosing The Elliott House Inn while visiting Charleston.

We stayed at the Elliott House Inn for two nights. Fantastic nightly rate of $99 per night.
Could not believe the great deal for staying at a Great Inn in the heart of Charleston.
The front desk was wonderful, friendly, helpful and informative. The breakfasts were served either in the courtyard or in room. We chose room service, and the staff would call to let us know that breakfast was on its way. The elevator was the only thing that needed help, smelled moldy.
Not a big deal. We were on the third floor, and opted to do the stairs. The inn is very clean, and tastelully decorated. The courtyard was very quaint, and great places to eat.

Thank you for your gracious words about the inn. The entire staff at the Elliott House Inn works very hard to make sure that you truly enjoy your stay. The staff prides itself on how well the rooms are kept, and is always willing to offer a helping hand whenever there are questions. The small breakfast is a great way to boost your energy, so that you may go explore everything that Charleston has to offer. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

I enjoyed my second floor room. It was a smaller room than some hotels but not too small.
Very clean and the a/c chilled the room well when the temp was over 100. Breakfast was nice and coffee in the courtyard was good. Good location but parking is $20 per night. Overall my stay was as good as stays in Charleston hotels that cost twice as much.

I’m glad that you enjoyed your stay with us while you were visiting Charleston. All the rooms have brand new window units since we reopened in October. The location and the price of the Elliott House Inn cannot be beat. Please come back again, the next time you are in Charleston.

My husband and I just got back from an overnight at the Elliott House. The accommodations were very nice, the staff was super, the afternoon wine and cheese was an unexpected treat, and the location couldn't be better. We were so surprised when we checked into our room and found a bottle of champagne from the staff. The Elliott House is next to Husk, a top-rated Charleston restaurant with a unique bar. It was the perfect place for my husband and I to celebrate our anniversary. We have already recommended the Elliott house to family and friends. We'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: If possible, choose an upstairs room.

Thank you so much for your kind words about the inn. The staff truly tries to make your special moments important, and we do truly appreciate the feedback. The location is perfect to any destination that is in the historic district. They say, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” but when you recommend our inn to your friends it means the most. We can’t wait for you to return back to the Elliott House Inn for many more anniversaries to come.

This charming B&B is in the heart of historic Charleston. The staff was excellent from check-in to check-out.

Our room was on the ground floor, but there was no problem with noise from the courtyard or from other rooms.

The beds were very comfortable and the rooms beautifully decorated. The A/C units worked well to combat the summer heat and humidity of July in Charleston. Our bed was a beautiful four-post. The only problem for some might be that the bed was very high and no "steps" were provided (may not be an issue in all rooms or may be available by request).

Complimentary continental breakfast (in room or courtyard) and late afternoon wine and cheese in the courtyard are a nice touch.

We walked everywhere in the downtown area, only taking the car to venture to Mt Pleasant (Patriots Point Maritime Museum) and Summerville (to visit family). We explored the Saturday Farmers Market, shopping and dining along Queen and King Streets, and finally, the open air market and dining at the waterfront.

We had a lovely time and look forward to staying with you again!

Thank you for choosing to stay with us, while visiting Charleston. From your review, I can tell that you stayed at the Elliott House during the weekend. The Charleston Farmers Market opens seasonally on the weekends, and there are a variety of unique opportunities at the market, so that one may get an inside perspective on the agricultural world of the Lowcountry. It seems like you spent most of your time exploring the Charleston area, which is something we always highly recommend, but it is always wonderful to read how much you truly enjoyed what the inn had to offer as well. Once again, we thank you for spending your vacation here with us at Elliott House Inn

This was our first stay at a B&B. We had a wonderful time. The location is great...convenient to so many things. The staph was friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful and clean. It had period furnishings, yet it was updated and very comfortable. We had dinner at Poogan's Porch which is just two doors down and drinks at Husk which is next door. We hope to come back very soon.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 10. It was a beautiful room, but right on the street. It was great to watch the ca...

Thank you for your gracious words about the Elliott House Inn. Queen Street is home to some of the best restaurants in the city. Just like you mentioned, the inn is centrally located and is great for walking around, and for picking up the numerous tours the city has to offer. As always, we hope to see you return to the Elliott House Inn for any future visits to Charleston.

Lovely place close to everything. This is a very old hotel so i thought the rooms would be dingy but i was surprised to find them very updated and clean. Got a great deal on priceline at 120 a night on a weekend when full price was 200 and up!
