Boutique Style Hotels Across South Carolina
South Carolina is high on my bucket list of states I want to visit. I have driven through the state a few times on trips down south but never stopped. Being such a beautiful state, I expect them to have great hotels as well. Here are some amazing boutique stays across South Carolina.

Enjoy the French Quarter area of Charleston, SC when staying at the Elliott House Inn. Enjoy the historic charm, local flavors, and southern hospitality while exploring the Charleston Harbor. Elliott House offers guests free Wi-Fi and breakfast. There is plenty of parking so guests can leave their cars while taking walking tours of the French Quarter. Rooms at Elliot House Inn average about $419 per night during peak season.

Just a five-minute walk from Charleston City Market, the Restoration on King offers guests top amenities. Guests at ROK receive complimentary continental breakfast that arrives to you in a picnic basket each morning. They also offer rentals of iPads, beach towels, beach chairs, and boogie boards. Get up early and take a bike ride since ROK offers free bikes on a first come, first served basis. There are only 18 rooms at ROK but they are all suites (either one or two bedrooms).

Wild Dunes Destination Hotels and Resorts give guests prime access to the beach. Their rooms range in size and can accommodate individual and couples or larger parties in their five-room private homes. Each room includes free wi-fi and cable television. Wild Dunes has a full service spa on site. They also have ten outdoor tennis courts, a health club, and pool if you’re planning on being more active. If you like golf, you can also book a tee time on their 36-hole golf course during your stay. If you’re planning a stay at Wild Dunes, I suggest traveling during off-season to take advantage of their lowest possible rates.
Harbor Side at Charleston Harbor and Marina

The Harbor Side at Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina offers fireplaces, balconies, and jetted tubes in some rooms, I recommend booking one of those special rooms if you stay at this resort. Great rooms are just a small portion of what this property has to offer guests. Soak up sun rays on their artificial beach or sit around the pool and enjoy the views of the marina. For activities, you can take a tour of the USS Yorktown historic ship or enjoy a complimentary trolley ride to Old City Market in Downtown Charleston. Rates for Harbor Side starts around $168 per night for a basic room. Guests can upgrade to suites with added amenities, marina views, and balconies.

All the rooms are non-smoking at the Shem Creek Inn; some even feature stunning views of the creek. All rooms include basics like a refrigerator, microwave, cable television, and coffee maker.

Guests traveling with family can visit Blackbeard’s Cove or Splash Island Waterpark for fun. Standard room rates start around $179 per night; upgrade to a premium room with a view for $239 per night.
Whether it’s for business or pleasure, any trip to South Carolina will be an enjoyable and relaxing trip. When you add in the history and amazing boutique hotels likes these, you’re in for a special treat.
