A holiday visit with family in Beaufort provided the opportunity for my recent stay at City Loft. I had always been very satisfied during prior visits, and the considerate, efficient service provided this time did not disappoint. An extremely comfortable bed left me well rested, a muffin and great coffee (courtesy of City Java, City Loft's coffee and snack shop)... More

Very happy with City Loft. Clean and efficient with solid gym. Walking distance to all restaurants and bars. Very close to Secession and only 35 minutes from all golf courses on the Island. Friendly staff. Highly recommend.

This renovated motel is a welcome change from the typical bed and breakfast. Rooms have been upgraded with memory foam mattresses and rainfall shower heads. Staff is friendly and helpful in the motel and the coffee shop downstairs. Both are owned by a local couple we met on site. Take advantage of the free bikes to tour the gorgeous homes... More

The City Loft Hotel is a former "motor lodge" nicely renovated to look and feel very contemporary. It is a 2-story building where every room has an outside entry. At the front ground level there is a small coffee shop. The people were very nice and helpful. They are working hard, trying to create an upscale feel, but there are... More

Stayed here again while visiting for vacation. Rooms are comfortable and clean and the staff couldn't be more helpful. There is a nice coffee shop right in the hotel and the location is perfect for access to downtown. I have always been happy with my stays at City Loft.

We recently made reservations at the City Loft to stay at while my nephew graduated from the Marines in Parris Island. After rave reviews of the hotel, we confirmed reservations for my family.

My sincerest apologies for the confusion related to your reservation. In my 8 years of ownership, this was the first, and I trust it will be the last overbooking we have experienced. I can only surmise this was a computer glitch related to a rebooting and or interfacing of our computer system and our independent reservation system post Hurricane Matthew.... More
