“Best Place to Stay in Charleston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

The Lodge Alley Inn is my favorite place to stay in Charleston! The location could not be better and the accomodations are exactly right for feeling the true magic and charm of historical Charleston. We were greeted by Clarence at the door, followed by a warm and friendly interaction with everyone that we encountered. We had a studio which was perfect for us, our teenage daughter and her friend. We did our traditional carriage ride which is always at the top of our list for must do's! We tried out the Cotton Club which is attached to the Lodge Alley and met Cory the bartender. Turns out he is from our hometown and we had a wonderful evening sharing stories. We highly recommend The Lodge Alley Inn as one of our top places to stay! You will not be dissapointed.

The Lodge Alley Inn is located in the historic district of Charleston. Park your car and put on your walking shoes because no matter which way you walk you are surrounded by history. Just 1 1/2 blocks from the Inn is the famous Market, 3 blocks Waterfront Park, and just a lovely walk to so many historical places that surround or are near the Lodge Alley Inn. If you don't feel like walking there are carriage rides nearby that will take you on a tour of the historic areas. Besides history Charleston is also known for culinary excellence. High Cotton Restaurant is attached to the Lodge Alley Inn. A few steps away you will find Magnolias, Blossom, and many, many, wonderful places to dine. Let you pallet lead the way and enjoy the fine cuisine that Charleston has to offer. As for Lodge Alley Inn it is beautiful! We were in a two bedroom condo that was spacious and very clean. Outside was a lovely plaza area where you can sit around umbrella tables and enjoy the lovely weather, a glass of wine, visit with friends or just listen to the soft sounds of the water flowing from the fountain in the center of the the plaza. The staff at the Lodge Alley Inn greeted us with a smile and were helpful and courteous in answering questions. You cannot park your car on site but there is valet parking. There is also a daily fee for parking your car but that is common in large cities. We had no problems with the valet service and they were prompt in retrieving our car. We are Blue Green owners and this resort lives up to the high quality we have come to expect from Blue Green. This is our third trip to Charleston but our first time at this resort and by far this was the nicest and most convenient for experiencing the sights and tastes of Charleston.

Have stayed at this location twice. The rooms are roomy and spacious. Both times I've stayed, it has been a queen or king room with a pullout couch. There is enough room if by chance we needed to bring an air mattress. The rooms are extremely clean. The beds are comfortable.
You can not beat this location. Walk out the door, and there are plenty of restaurants and bars.

The staff is friendly and has been great handling the valet service.

Only negative is that there is sometimes noise from the outside establishments. I just have a sound machine app on my phone and it drowns out the noise-no biggie!

Once again our choice of lodging while visiting downtown Charleston was lodge Alley Inn! Had a warm "welcome back, good to see you again!" from Clarence, the always smiling door keeper, and our favorite valet at Lodge Alley! He has been there as long as we have been coming, and we always look forward to seeing him! Our rooms were lovely! My husband and I stayed in one of our favorite suites in the courtyard. The kiddos stayed in a nice one bedroom in the building next door. We only had two nights on this trip, but it was all lovely! The weather was perfect, and everyone was so friendly and made our stay very welcome! Thanks again! We stayed at two other really nice places on this trip and the bed at Lodge Alley was the most comfortable!

My husband and I just spent a long weekend at Lodge Alley Inn and loved every second of it! We booked a studio (room 307) and thought it was just perfect for us. Everything was nicely appointed and we loved the microwave, mini-fridge, toaster, coffee maker, plates, glasses and silverware provided. The entire staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome. You could consider me pretty picky about cleanliness and I thought that the room was very clean and tidy. The location is in the heart of downtown Charleston and was withing walking distance to most of the attractions we visited. The only time we used our car was to drive to Boone Hall Plantation, but it was well worth the drive! I highly recommend anyone staying here and guarantee that we will definitely be back soon!

Room Tip: Definitely try and book a room in the courtyard. There is no pool so keep that in mind if you are b...
