Recent guest reviews

We absolutely loved our stay at Harbourview. The staff went above and beyond, the room was amazing and the location was perfect.

This was the best hotel stay we have had in a long time. The hotel staff thought of every convenience to make our stay a memorable one!

We were pleasantly surprised by the size and appointment of the room. It was very comfortable. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and attentive. The location is excellent and attractions, restaurants and shopping are all in walking distance. Who could ask for more?

Our hotel experience was exceptional! We were greeted by friendly staff. Our room was clean and maintained by friendly housekeeping staff. Room service was exceptional. Valet parking was convenient

Loved the location and the proximity to things that were on our agenda. Would stay there again.

Enjoyed being next to waterfront park with easy walks to Battery, market, historic streets and houses. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Room was very nice....only complaint was side chairs were uncomfortable. The included breakfasts and 24 hour coffee and tea were great. Would recommend to a friend and would stay again should we return to Charleston.

This hotel is in a great location close to shops and restaurants. The staff was very helpful and kind. The amenities alone make this hotel worth the stay. The included breakfast was great and delivered to our room at the time of our choosing. Coffee, tea, candy and fruit available all day. Evening cheese and wine reception and cookies and milk later in the evening! The rooms are spacious and clean. Next trip to Charleston I will be staying here and highly recommend this place!

Overall very good, only complaint is that some of the "harbor view" rooms barely have a view of the harbor.

Delightful stay. Lovely staff. Great location. Highly recommend and certain to return.

From the moment we arrived at Harbourview Inn my husband and I were treated wonderfully. An absolutely beautif welcoming inn the staff our room the hotel complimentary wine and cheese each evening cookies later morning breakfast in our room or in the area by our room. Fabulous! Thank you recommend for sure!

Comfortable hotel. Lacking modern conveniences. No room service or shops in the hotel. No gym or minibar. Staff was warm but often missed the mark. Cozy room. Harbor view rooms are best. Great view from the rooftop.

Great location! Within waling distance to fabulous restaurants, shopping and the historic homes of Charleston.

The hotel appeared a bit old and worn. There was no service elevator so we often had to wait until cleaning staff, room service and facilities management were done with the elevator to get in. Some staff were more friendly than others.

Our stay at Harbourview was nothing short of excellent.Staff was great , very friendly and helpful.Breakfast included was diverse.fresh.and delish.24 hour coffe/tea.Cheese and crackers in afternoon,cookies and milk at night??? Awesome!!!Room was clean and spacious,very comfy.Location was key,we walked every where we wanted to go.All in all a great hotel in a beautiful city.Would stay there again in a heartbeat...5 star

Location was great - walking distance to many tourist sites and good restaurants. Free Trolley that has a stop at the hotel that can take you to many of the downtown sites. Loved the free continental breakfast on the rooftop terrace delivered to us at our requested time. The wine and cheese hour was delightful as well. The hotel was clean, comfortable, and welcoming. Would highly recommend it.

Could not pick a better location, beautiful boutique inn; cozy well appointed room with the friendliness, most courteous staff. Wonderful wine and cheese service in the early evening, beautiful views of the harbor and the city; in the middle of historic Charleston! Close to everything of interest, walking distance.

Great hotel, super friendly staff! The location is the best in down. You can walk everywhere from here. Only knock is the pillows, not a fan of them. Overall highly recommended!!!

This was a great location for Memorial day, staff were extremely helpful and breakfast in bed was delicious!

Small boutique hotel on quiet street but near everything! Valet parking is expensive but parking in charleston is ridiculous so worth it. Wine and cheese served late afternoon. Fantastic.
