Cleanliness reviews are true
Proximity to restaurants/shops.
Was hesitant to book after reading the many negative reviews about the the hotels lack of cleanliness and finally booked thinking, 'it's probably just people over reacting'... It's not. When we checked in and arrived to our room, the previous guests' room service tray was still outside. Not a big deal, but queued my curiosity about inside. Upon entering it all looked clean. Bed made, bathroom dry and stocked. When I finally took a seat on the bed, I saw it. The linens had multiple brown and red stains on the quilt and pillowcases. And a few strands of hair. We immediately asked for the bed to be remade (which they did and apologized for), but it was still difficult feeling comfortable when we crawled in bed after a long day.
Excellent, quiet location for historic district. The courtyard would have been very pleasant in good weather. Staff were helpful.
Small room overdecorated, with no place to put personal items. Rained hard all day, with no indoor dining area, so breakfast and wine and cheese reception were not offered in the courtyard. Breakfast choices were very limited. Would benefit from better bad weather planning.
Location clean professional staff comfortable rooms wine and cheese and breakfast too wow
Glad to return
I've stayed at the Elliott House several times over the years. Love the location and breakfast delivered to the room.
Everything was great, except the bathroom!
loved the location, the free wine and cheese reception from 5-6, the courteous staff and the comfortable beds.
The shower was absolutely awful. More specifically, the water pressure in the shower was awful. I couldn't get clean, and when I told the staff they let me know they would have a plumber there within 24 hours, which was after we had left and taken two AWFUL showers.
Charm, Comfort, Location
Staff is gracious and welcoming. Our room was spotless. Other reviewers have noted that rooms are small. Fine by us as we tend to spend very little time in the room while in Charleston. (We are frequent visitors to the city.) Our stay was blissfully quiet. The courtyard is charming and inviting - if only it had a bar...Location: perfect. Easy walk to anything in Charleston you might want, and gorgeous in all directions. This was our first stay at Elliott House - we'll definitely be back.
Charming Inn in the Historic district
Nice hotel with a fantastic location. Not overly spacious but that is typical of historic properties.
Look carefully among the gracious Georgian, Federal, Greek Revival, Second Empire and Queen Anne style homes of historic Charleston, SC and you'll discover The Elliott House Inn. Historic Charlestons favorite Bed and Breakfast Inn is, like Charleston itself, an elegant survivor of a tempestuous past. Built as a private residence in 1861, this remarkably preserved architectural treasure has weathered hurricanes, earthquakes, as well as the Civil War. Meticulously restored, and centrally located in the heart of Charleston, SCs captivating historic district, The Elliott House Inn is within walking distance to the famous market area, art galleries, boutique and antique shopping, and of course Charlestons world renowned dining.
