Had to try this place because of all the great reviews. We were not disappointed. Everything was top notch from the room, to the service to the location and amenities. City Loft deserves its rating and we would highly recommend it to everyone!!!

What a gem! From the first contact to make our reservation to check out, the staff at City Loft was outstanding. The Hotel is really "hip"...it is spotlessly clean and beyond comfortable. The bathroom is incredible with a wonderful soaking tub and rain shower. It was nice to have a fridge, bath robes, wine glasses and nice toiletries. There was...

Ideal location to waterfront and downtown. We loved the wonderful,creative design of the bathroom--one of the coolest we've stayed in at this price. The hotel also gave us a $5 credit for the coffee shop connected to the hotel. Staying here was truly a treat.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review describing us as a"real treat". Our location in the heart of Beaufort's historic district is indeed ideal and we are fortunate to have found ourselves right in the middle of a hub of activity which affords our guests easy access to dining, shopping, historic landmarks and beautiful waterfront vistas.

This wonderful little hotel is cleaner than clean. From check-in to check-out it was a pleasure to call the place our temporary home. Staff came to our car and ask to help with our luggage. Room amenities: fridge, real glass wine glasses, IPhone dock, bottle of red and chilled white wine for only $16 each, free bottled water, green toiletries,...

Cleaner than clean is a statement that housekeeping will be delighted to hear. Awesome is another compliment that suggests you thoroughly enjoyed your visit and that we delivered on our mission to provide a great product and great service. Thank you for staying with us.

Oak Park, Illinois
Reviewed 22 April 2014

A downtown motel refurbished in a spa motif to excellent effect. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Service is attentive and pleasant. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Beaufort. It is within walking distance of the waterfront park and the main shopping and dining drag.

Great little hotel, easy walking distance to food/drinks. Nice empty grassy lot around the corner for doggie potty breaks. Very friendly staff, modern rooms.....killer shower heads. Excellent coffee shop on the property.

Very happy to know that both you and your canine friend found City Loft to your liking! It is true there is a wonderful park with benches and grassy areas in which to walk your dog-..and bags in which to dispose of the "business" they may leave behind.

So I agree that this fab hotel was probably a motel, and if you're reading this, you're probably thinking, "Ugh." But the photos you see on the website EXACTLY match the rooms. Plus the service is great (they booked me some time at the spa because I was leaving early to hit the channel islands). The City Java coffee house...

We stumbled upon this hotel while returning from vacation. Excellent use of what was probably an ugly old concrete motel from the 50's or 60's. Most wouldn't have the imagination to do anything but bulldoze such a place, but this one is a keeper! Decor is modern and clean. Customer service is great. Nice fitness center and Citi Java and...

Thank you for taking the time to post a very positive review of City Loft. Our goal is as you described us- a unique experiment- 50s motel, turned luxury hotel with excellent service.

My wife and I have stayed multiple times at City Loft, while house hunting in Beaufort - a week in January, and a few days in April. What a great project, to transform a 50's downtown motel into a fabulous boutique hotel - inside and out. Many of the reviews positively describe the appointments, beds, soaking tubs, walk-in showers, colors,...
