“Must stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

My husband and I recently spent a weekend in Beaufort SC and stayed at City Loft. This was an old motel in the heart of the historic district that has been converted to a modern boutique motel. Perfect location, great coffee shop, comfortable rooms and the absolute best staff!!! We cannot say enough about the staff and how wonderful they are to the guests who are treated like family. We suggest you stop for a picnic lunch at Old Sheldon Church on your way into Beaufort. While in Beaufort try the french pressed coffee from Java City (room service), take the bikes for a ride, go on a carriage tour, visit St. Helena's church, enjoy some sweets from the Chocolate Tree, relax in Waterfront park, dine at Breakwater, and try the Buffalo oysters at 11th Street Dockside in Port Royal. Thanks again to Matt and his superb staff for such a wonderful stay, we will be back!

My husband and I just returned from two week-long stays at City Loft Hotel. After we stayed the first time, we just had to stay there again two weeks later on a return visit. We really loved this boutique hotel for lots of reasons!! City Loft is a really fabulous hotel built in the 1950's that has been renovated very tastefully. It is a two-story hotel with outside entrances and also has a very hip coffee shop, City Java & News, which by the way puts Starbuck's to shame.... The rooms are contemporary in design, decorated beautifully, fine linens on cozy beds, complimentary organic soaps, lotions and shampoos that smell divine.. The showers are as fine as ANY you would find in a five-star hotel with frameless all-glass doors and rain heads! The first couple of nights we turned down their "turn down" service and found out much later that we were "missing out" on some very delicious cookies being left during turn down... We fixed that and started getting in on that "party"! I also loved the convenient and well-equipped fitness center that overlooks the historic downtown area. Another great perk about this hotel is its location... It is within walking distance to all historic sights and neighborhoods. Also, you can walk to wonderful local restaurants and shopping as well as the beautiful waterfront park that's only two blocks away. But like all great hotels, City Loft earned our repeat visit because of its staff. From the people in the coffee shop, to the managers, cleaning staff and even the owner, Matt, service is first-class in every way. It no doubt is a combination of Southern hospitality and the fact Matt hires the nicest people you would ever meet. They love serving guests and it shows. We highly recommend this hotel and will happily stay there again.

Thank you so much for your great review of City Loft Hotel. It was such a pleasure to have your back on your second trip to Beaufort and I hope you will be able to stay with us again when you return. Matt has done an amazing job with the renovation, the standards of service and the vision for a once-tattered and ignored property. We are proud to offer such a great alternative to Beaufort and to be one of the first in the Carteret Street Renaissance (check out Southern Living November 2010 article). Keep coming back and we all hope to see you again soon!

Staff was superb, taking extra time to ensure everything was perfect. Location is wonderful, walking distance to historic area/Bay St., etc, close to restaurants.....go to Low Country City Hall directly across the street, it's not what you think?? Can you say yummy? Hotel was modern, clean, and just plain neat, you would never guess you could stay in such wonderful accommadations if you just drove by. Look at their website, pic's are what you get, no suprises. Reminds you of an old motor lodge from outside, probably was once, outside is clean and well kept. Maid service is great too.....
We did not stay in anyplace nicer when we visited Charleston and Savannah. Everyone in the whole city was great and very friendly. If we ever go back to Beaufort, which I'd say we will some day, my wife and I will definately choose here! :)

Room Tip: There's not a bad one, far as I can tell. Only two floors, so you will have to lug your luggage...

Although this is the first review I have ever completed on a hotel, this place deserves it. From the moment we checked in to the moment we left, the staff made us feel like we were owners. The room itself was in immaculate condition, extremely clean, extremely comfortable, and updated to current standards with all the right touches. A perfect bed and soft linens, as well as one of the best bathrooms I have ever seen for a hotel room. Perfect location within a two-minute walk to the best restaurants in Beaufort as well as the waterfront park. It will be the only place we ever stay when we traveled to Beaufort South Carolina.

Room Tip: None needed ... as the staff takes great care to make sure everything is perfect.
