My husband and I stayed here a couple nights as we were passing through on a trip to Florida, although we wish we could have stayed longer! We got there late at night so we were pleasantly surprised when we woke up to such a beautiful view of the river out our window in the morning. We enjoyed a really nice lunch at the restaurant on property and the gorgeous landscaping on runs in the morning. The staff were also great and very accommodating. We hope to go back and visit again for a longer stay in the future!

This was our 13th stay at the Inn over the past 20 years. It is the perfect place to visit for a quiet and peaceful vacation. The surroundings are beautiful any time of year, but spring is especially lovely with the azaleas. The rooms are beautifully appointed with simple and classic furnishings. It is clean and the staff is friendly and happy to provide any extra towels, water, coffee, firewood, etc. Unfortunately, due to Covid, they are unable to offer the usual fantastic breakfast, so looking forward to Orcelia's great oatmeal on our next visit. We walked each day on the trails of the Inn encountering deer, squirrels and spotting alligators and herons in the marsh waters. The complimentary access to Middleton Gardens is a nice perk and we walked over each day to enjoy the beauty of the grounds. I also saw my first bald eagle in the wild while in the gardens, so that was a highlight of my trip. We sat on a bench under an enormous oak tree and watched him fishing. The Inn is surrounded by woods and nature, so bring your walking shoes to get the full enjoyment out of your visit. Be sure to have a meal or two at The Middleton Restaurant. We ate their once each day and appreciated the fresh food and the care the chef takes to make everything absolutely perfect. We especially enjoyed the shrimp and grits, fresh salads, soups and fried chicken dishes. After a peaceful morning walk, it is a short drive into downtown Charleston to enjoy the historic homes and lovely parks. Enjoy!

The overall look/theme of Middleton Inn is rustic but it needs some serious updating. The showers are close to being dangerous. The TV screen is the size of a computer monitor. Weather was bad; college ball was on, a larger TV over the fireplace would have made the rainy day more tolerable since there is nothing else to do there when its raining. There is an ambiance with the shuttered windows on the first floor that open fully for a great view. Loved the aged-oak floors in our room. Staff at the restaurant was great although they gave us a lame 'covid rules' explanation when we requested champagne with sherbet for dessert. The grounds at Middleton Plantation and the walking trails are one-of-a-kind if the weather cooperates. The bricks around the Inn were dangerously slick in the rain.

Thank you for your time in leaving a review, and for your confidence in us while traveling during such a unusual time. It is a difficult balance for out team, to meet all the required guidelines and make both staff, and guests comfortable so that we can continue to offer this location to those traveling-and do so safely. I'm happy to say that we are discussing all the new updates with a committee and architectural designer, and will be rolling out those updates soon. You can view some of the progress on our social media channels. Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither will we, so follow our journey and share more thoughts as we move on. The TV service, and size, is on that list of updates as well. Continue to travel safe, and thank you again.

My husband and I wanted a quiet weekend to disconnect. We booked a Riverside room at the Inn. We were excited to be able to access the Middleton Place Plantation and Gardens and we also booked dinner at the Middleton Place Restaurant. When we booked the room we were informed that most of the amenities at the Inn were closed; the Lakehouse and Lodge. When we arrived we figured out this was due to the beginning of renovations going on. Since we wouldn’t have access to the Lodge specifically, we were told a complimentary bottle of wine and cheese platter would be in our room. When we arrived in our room, we were very disappointed. Not only was there no bottle of wine or cheeses there but the room was very old. Ripped bed quilt, stained ceilings, and moldy bathroom. Our room was on the second floor and did not have the wooden blinds that you see on the website. No biggie, but the glass windows were very dirty. The bathroom was extremely dated. Toilet was very low to the floor. Sink area did not seem very clean. When my husband called to inquire about the wine and cheese; the receptionist had no idea. She asked him to call someone at the Lodge. We left a message and decided to head over to the Middleton Plantation and Gardens. The gardens were exquisite! Absolutely gorgeous. There was a quick path to walk from the Inn to the Gardens during the day. Registration suggested we go straight to the Visitor Center to reserve a time for the House tour. Everything about the plantation and gardens was worth it. A must see if you're in the area. While enjoying the gardens we heard back from a manager at the Lodge who informed us that due to it being closed, we were unable to have a cheese platter but they could give us a bottle of champagne. When we returned to our room that evening, the bottle was nicely chilling in the fridge. She was very apologetic. We enjoyed an excellent dinner at the Middleton Place Restaurant. Walking the path at night though, was extremely dark and challenging. No lighting. Bring a flashlight! In our room, that evening we did enjoy a nice wood burning fire, although the logs were very damp and took a while to burn. The room was very quiet. Unfortunately, when we woke up the next morning, the ceiling was leaking. When taking a shower it was very old and the fixture hung low. I have no idea what tall people do to shower. The shower also had a very wide ledge, which was dangerous for entering and exiting. Before leaving we strolled over to the Lakehouse where there was a “grab and go'' breakfast. Due to COVID- 19 we were told this was the only breakfast option. This was the most ridiculous breakfast I had ever seen. They were charging people for microwaved JimmyDean sandwiches and toasted bagels. Thankfully, we were served by the same nice manager who sent us the champagne and she comped us our breakfast. When we checked out I informed registration of the room leak, she seemed shocked and very apologetic. Frankly, based on our experience, the rate was excessive. I wanted to love it, being a part of nature was wonderful and the staff was kind, but the room was a huge disappointment.

I'm sorry to hear of your disappointment, sounds like you did face a number of challenges. I'd love to speak to you directly, as I wasn't aware of these issues and get some more information. Please reach out when you can. In regards to a leak in the room, repairs moving forward consist of all new roofing-which is why our staff was most likely so surprised, so I don't expect this to be a ongoing issue. A committee has been formed to look at the design of the room as well, so perhaps some of your ideas will be discussed. The oversights of my staff are just that, and I'll be sure to speak to my team to get us on the same page. In regards to breakfast, we happily will go back to regular service, with safety options in place, starting March 1st.

I decided to stay at The Inn while I was in Charleston. I was drawn to stay here because passes to Middleton Place was included with your stay. I stayed in a Riverside room and had a beautiful view of the River. I went on a walk along the river after I checked in and the view was breath taking. I was able to use the fireplace in my room which made my stay even more relaxing. The next day I went over to Middleton Place and had a blast walking the grounds. I especially liked the stable yard. All of the staff members I came into contact with were very nice and helpful. I would highly recommend staying if you are visiting Charleston or even if you live near by and need a little get away.
