Look carefully among the gracious Georgian, Federal, Greek Revival, Second Empire and Queen Anne style homes of Charleston's historic Queen Street and one discovers a quaint and comfortable bed and breakfast at number 78 called The Elliott House Inn. Like Charleston itself, The Inn is an elegant survivor of a tempestuous past. Built as a private residence in 1861, this remarkably preserved architectural treasure has weathered hurricanes, earthquakes, at least one tornado and the civil war. When and where restoration has been necessary, painstaking care has been taken to ensure architectural and historical accuracy.

Summer rest

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times, but this was my first since the most recent renovation. The positives: New bedding, new flat screen TV, iphone clock and charging station, and free Wi-Fi, new paint everywhere, and a courtyard to die for. Now the negatives: Very poor water flow in shower. This was addressed rapidly by the responsive and friendly staff, but could not be resolved completely. If you like a good shower, this is not your place. Second, very noisy A/C. Lastly, no TV channel lineup in room for those down times and rainy days. The staff members are great! The location is great! I would stay again because of the value, but they would really be THE place to stay if they can overcome the above mentioned issues.

Magnolia Resturant on East Bay, great food! Also 82 Queen and Fleet Landing. For a casual breakfast, lunch, or weekend brunch, Eli's on Meeting street is great!

Elliott House

For the price the rooms did not have enough storage space for your clothes, very limited breakfast menu, very small TV, and no iron or hair dryer(unless you asked at front desk and hope they weren't all given out) Location, and staff were great.

Good location.

Hot tub and location a plus. They should a maid for the afternoon to insure the rooms get cleaned if the guests are enjoying there vacation and don't get up at 8am.

Good small hotel in the historic district

Location is great on Queen Street. The courtyard is pretty, and they will bring a simple breakfast to you either in your room or the courtyard. Our room was smallish with a queen size bed, but it was clean and fine. The people who work there are nice.

Quick Charleston escape

Nice place in great spot. Rooms recently redone, very clean and comfortable, if not fancy or large. Very nice small hotel experience in historic district. Good value, esp. in relation to other hotels in the area. Will go back.

Fantastic husband and wife getaway

The accomodations were great, the location couldn't get any better and the staff excellent. Including wine and cheese in the court yard made a relaxing enviorment to meet with other guests. The only complaint is having to pay for parking, $20 for the day. Should have a discount for people staying at the Elliot House Inn.

The room was about average, but the setting and history were nice. Didn't meet my expectations based on other reviews read.

An enjoyable stay

We stayed at Elliott House inn for our anniversary. The staff was attentive to needs. They were very helpful in suggesting places to go and things to do while in Charleston. The location was key. Three blocks and you are in the market and just a few blocks to carriage rides, and top restaurants.
