I stayed two nights in this small inn. The location is great (next to Husk), the room only average. Perhaps I would have liked it better if I had used some of the amenities. They delivered breakfast which is a nice service but it wasn't very good. They ordered a taxi for me but didn't really pay attention to the...

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent stay with us. We are glad that you liked the courtyard and the idea of the breakfast being brought to your room.

My wife and I stayed and enjoyed the room and the wine and cheese served at 5pm. Staff was nice. The breakfast was good. The hot tub did not look extremely inviting but the court yard was cool. The price was amazing to get wine and cheese and breakfast brought to your room in the morning. If you are looking...

Make sure you stay right downtown and the Elliott Inn is the place and location. We relaxed in he courtyard. Had a drink on the balcony right in from of our room. #35 was a great room and location within the Inn itself. Wonderful vacation.

Great service, courtyard with hot tub is pretty and lovely to relax in. Cheese & wine hour is an added bonus, we went both nights and it was good. Rooms are spacious, our bathroom was a little small but definitely adequate. Beds are nice and big with decent bedding. Great character overall.

The world-class restaurants, that Charleston is becoming famous for, are just a few feet away from the property. We look forward to hosting you again, the next time you are in the area.

For this kind of experience, night rate should not exceed $125! Noise, cleanliness, more noise, breakfast limited choice are too much to appreciate the great location. Finally, this survey is particularly annoying. We will pick another Inn next time in Charleston!

I’m sorry that we did not meet your expectations. The Elliott House Inn is located right in the middle of Charleston’s booming historic district. The City of Charleston Noise Ordinance goes into effect at 11 PM, so until that time, we cannot really do much to help with the impact of the noise. If the noise persists after 11 PM,...

We visited the Elliott House in the Fall of 1996 with a couple of friends. Last month we met other friends there and again appreciated its location, amenities, property, staff, and happy hour of wine, cheese and snacks served in the beautiful courtyard daily from 5-6. As it was a bit cool, breakfast was served at our requested time every...

Lovely inn with a wonderful location. If you're looking for the quintessential historic Charleston experience, I would certainly recommend the Elliott House. Beautiful room with a most wonderful courtyard and welcoming staff. The proximity to many of Charleston's historic sights and homes is fantastic.

Authentic? Perhaps, so very charming. Very romantic and peaceful. The breakfast was delicious, and the 5pm wine & cheese a great surprise. Surrounded by 3 popular restaurants and cute Lil gift shops. In room fridge for any left overs were cleverly disguised in the side table. We will definitely be back.
