“Magic”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We just stayed in July 2013 for a get-a-way and loved it! I was worried after some of the review but the only thing I can come up with is that what people "want" is totally unrealistic. We LOVED this place, it felt magic almost! With the views and the neat rooms that were clean! Plus the staff was great and very helpful in every way! We checked in late and had a window we opened and couldn’t get closed (we were turning handle wrong) and they sent someone down right away to help! What great service! We will be back as soon as possible. Clean and helpful in every way! This is a must see place! Do not pass this one up!

Room Tip: We had a wooded lot, it was nice and on the bottom. Nice for summer, room was nice and cool!

We stayed at The Inn at Middleton Place in Charleston, SC 25-27 Jun 2013, room 333. It was terrible. We did a Living Social deal for 2 nights at $344.00. Lowest toilet ever seen, tub did not look clean, shower very slippery, also shower very close to light fixture. Bathroom door would not slide out to close. When you turned on the bathroom fan, it pulled in the air from the fireplace which was stale and made the whole room stink. Room was too dark, not enough outlets, shutters falling apart. The sheets and blanket were paper thin and uncomfortable to sleep on. Walking outside, the paths need to have more lights. This whole place needs to be updated. It is in a great location.

Room Tip: The Gardens at Middleton Place were beautiful.

I am glad to hear that you agree that our location is great, and hope that you were able to take part admission to Middleton Place ($86 value for two), the Healthy Start Breakfast, evening reception and bicycle rentals that were all included in the outstanding deal offered by Living Social. It is obvious to me that we need to work with Living Social and other promotional sites to make sure they are properly showcasing and describing the Inn accurately, so that guests such as yourselves understand the location you are purchasing and visiting; prior to arrival. The Inn’s architecture is praised and recognized on a global basis daily, it is a shame you didn’t agree. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay; happy continued travels. Abigail M. Martin, General Manager

This is truly a gem. The property was lovely and full of wildlife. Lots of gators, blue heron and turtles. The grounds are beautiful and the history is so cool. We did the low country getaway and it was awesome. It included a picnic lunch which was yummy. They serve free drinks and apps at reception from 5-7. We did the kayak down the Ashley river which was amazing. The room is very nice and you are not in there much anyway. We didn't have time for horseback riding but it looked like fun also. Worth every penny. We spent our 12th anniversary there and they even left us a card and a gift. So sweet. Highly recommended and will be back!

Room Tip: Any room is a good room as you should be out and about on the grounds and not hanging out inside!

Green Features: They have recycling bins in the rooms which is nice. They also provide organic toiletries.

My husband and I stayed here for one night. Our room was located in the lower level of the 3 floor "residences". I have to say that the lower level was not welcoming at all. The bottom of the door was rotting out and the concrete walkout and walls needed a good power washing. The bedroom space was ample with a wall of windows which overlooked the grassy area. There is a small fireplace in the room, but unfortunately made the entire room smell like a campfire (even though we didn't use it). The bathroom was odd. I have a feeling that these inn spaces were built sometime in the early 80s as the decor and architecture reflects it in the oversized mosaic tile shower and bath and the gigantic (and low) toilet. The bathroom ceiling was also rounded which gave it a cave-like feel. Overall it was just a disappointing room for $200.00 per night. On the plus side, admission to Middleton Place is included. It is a beautiful plantation and I recommend visiting.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and I’m sorry that the Inn wasn’t for you. Within a day of each other, your review showing surprise that the Inn is looked at as ‘Romantic’ and another with the title ‘Romantic Location’ were posted. Obvious proof that opinions are just that; opinions! We are researching ideas to help make the lower level courtyard room entrances more welcoming, however, the simplicity of the architecture really doesn’t warrant any make-up. The Inn was built in 1985 and many permanent fixtures do reflect that time line. Multiple updates and room refreshes have been done over the last year that only adds to the room’s character. I’d love for you to contact me personally to discuss a possible return visit to see the changes we have undergone. Thank you again for your time, and your visit. All my best, Abigail M. Martin, General Manager

We loved this property! To be able to wander the plantation grounds in the evening was a fantastic way to end our days! We were thrilled to see our first alligators in the wild and all the lovely paths. We enjoyed the lodge and wished the pool stayed open a little later as we never got back to the inn before 8. The room was very nice with the large bathroom and numerous windows. The bed seemed a little broken down, but we slept just fine. The healthy choice breakfast was just right for us, but they also offer hot items from a menu for purchase. We tried to do a horseback trail ride, but were rained out. The very nice guide was willing to go if we wanted, but we said no. Overall, this was a perfect choice for our Charleston stay! I will gladly recommend this inn to anyone who enjoys quiet country life.

My 16 year old daughter and I were looking for a hotel in Charleston that was a little "different". We found it! The hotel is nestled in and amongst live Oaks on the banks of the Ashley River. The price we paid included admission to Middleton Place (walking distance) and all it had to offer. Breakfast daily was delicious! ! Shrimp and grits one morning, steak and eggs the next. We came on a particularly rainy weekend but hardly noticed did to the fact the hotel offers complimentary umbrellas at every turn. Some people don't get the mission of this hotel and bristle at its simplicity. Give it a try, you'll pleasantly surprised.

Incredible vacation for the price! We went mid-week during summer & it was very serene with a lower occupancy. A wedding party arrived toward the end of the week & things got considerably noisier. Loved the river views, pool, manager's happy hour, lake house breakfast and access to the plantation- all included in the room price. Service was impeccable everywhere - the staff really outdoes itself. Rooms all open to outside & are decorated in a sparse/rustic Danish modern design - lots of wood & windows. (one regret - we would not be able to come in winter as all rooms have wood burning fireplaces & I have asthma)The mattress seemed brand new but the pillows and sheets were old, worn and uncomfortable. TV is tiny and aged. I understand room renos are in the works. Kayak and Horseback riding available, and the gardens of the plantation are just magnificent, especially near sundown when tourists are gone and it's just open to Inn guests. 30-45 minute drive to anywhere, but well worth it to make as a home base to come back to if touring Charleston. One complaint - would love the hedges separating the pool & river to be cut - it would make such a lovely view when lounging on the pool deck.

Room Tip: No elevators, all stairways open to the elements, so get a first-floor room if you have knee problem...

Green Features: Loved the recycling bin in each room. Did not like the shampoo/conditioner - dried my hair out badly.
