Great location! Park your car and walk! Awesome staff they make you feel welcome! Comfortable room! Amazing bathroom. Loved the coffee shop! Wine in the room (for purchase) a very nice touch. Lowcountry Produce Market & Cafe directly across the street is a nice place for breakfast. (It's located in an old Post Office) thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Beaufort...

I've stayed at the City Loft a few times. Each time has been great! The renovation is awesome! The staff is excellent. They go the extra mile to enhance your stay. All of the hotel amenities are upgrades from a chain hotel (coffee shop, fitness center, etc..). The location of this hotel can't be beat! As I stated to the...

Fantastic remodel of an older style two story motel. Sets the standard for a motel remodel. I'm very impressed. Great staff walks you to room. Typical motel room size but the remodel makes it work really well with plenty of room to walk around and lots of style. Lots of lights in the room. Quiet room which to me is...

This small hotel is on the main drag of Beaufort, but you won't hear the noises from the road. The owners have taken an old motor lodge and turned it into a lovely unique hotel. Great bed (only have king-sized beds), nice sitting area and a great bathroom - double sinks, wonderful shower (although the floor can get a little...

This was a great small hotel perfectly situated within walking distance to everything. It was located right off of Bay St. so it was super convenient to all of the restaurants, shops and beautiful river front park. We absolutely loved the room with its clean modern feel. The bathroom was so wonderful and clean. Totally enjoyed soaking in the huge...

Perfect! The decor was modern, the cleanliness immaculate, the huge separate bathtub was a great surprise and I used it twice! Tv in the bathroom also! Bed was like a pillow. Checked in later and nice front desk man offered to walk me to my room. Was not sure what to expect as it appeared to be an older motor...

My wife and I had an event in Beaufort and Stayed at the City Loft, and we loved it. Great rooms, a great workout faculty, and a wonderful coffee bar. Its walking distance to the water front and has several great restaurants very close. We ate at Breakwater and it was fantastic as well.

I remember this hotel from the 70s - the old Lord Carteret Motel. The place is totally remodeled from the day. Very nice, super clean, beautifully appointed, they did a fantastic job.

Nice hotel we found at the last minute for a quick getaway from the cold mountains. Location was good for scooting around town by foot, driving off to the State Park (mostly closed due to Hurricane Matthew last fall), as well as boating, biking, and jogging through town and the nearby Spanish Moss Trail. Only downside is that the free...
