We stayed four nights for our ten year anniversary and our first time in Charleston. The service and attention to detail were awesome. The complimentary snacks and drinks all day were a nice touch, along with the wine and cheese hour and warm cookies and milk every night. The location was right in the middle of all the must see...

The location of this property is perfect. It is a fun place to people watch. The fountains are playful and the walking area is well used. The treats in the evening are enough to make a meal. The rooms are spacious and well maintained.

As a Hilton Diamond Honors member, I usually stay within the Hilton family of hotels. This was our first trip to Charleston and the TripAdvisor community spoke highly of the HarbourView Inn, so we took a shot and booked it. The rates were slightly higher than other hotels in the area, but little did we know the value that we...

The Harbourview Inn is in a great location, you are walking distance from most everything. The evening wine and cheese was nice, but the night time cookies were great! The staff wasn't the friendliest, but we stayed out most of the time so it didn't bother us too much.
