The City Loft is the perfect place to stay in Beaufort. Beautiful, modern rooms and excellent customer service...not to mention a location you cannot beat. The availability of bikes to borrow to see the beautiful waterfront is such a plus too. I love not only the coffee but the food and wine in coffee shop. I will return!

We knew we had found something special when we first drove into the parking lot. It only got better. Just by looking, one could see that this had been an old fashioned "motel". One of the locals told us that this had once been the flea-bag, eyesore of the downtown area. Now the whole town seems to have pride in... More

My wife and I had a great experience at the City Loft Hotel. The updated bathrooms were the NICEST bathrooms I have ever seen in any hotel, the shower and tub were extraordinary for a hotel.

We chose to stay in Beaufort, S.C. due to bad weather up 95 north. A short search discovered this small motel. Cute, very well done, evidently used to be a bad motel and someone with some taste came through re-did it all and hired the right people to run it. Manny checked us in, showed us where the restaurants and... More

We normally stay at the more known hotels, I guess for value, confidence in accommodations and consistency. Won't do that again at least when we come to beautiful Beaufort SC. Very well disguised tones of a mature property, the "European" up grades and cleanliness really good. Best of all is the attitude of the personnel we encountered and overall quality... More
