The resort is actually a collection of 18th century warehouses that have been lovingly restored to preserve their history while also providing guests with all the modern-day amenities and conveniences. Accommodations at the resort include a bigger 1-bedroom loft for up to 4 guests.

The Victorian-style suites blend old-world appeal in the common living areas with a boutique accommodations experience.
The Lodge Alley Inn is conveniently located just steps from Charleston Harbor, the Market and Rainbow Row. Once the valet parks your car, let our concierge arrange a historic walking tour or a horse-drawn carriage to take you around town.

How to find the best Charleston vacation home experience:
Get the most from your vacation rental budget:
- Booking a rental in Spring or Fall is our best tip for saving money on your vacation. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of desirable homes.
- Reserve your rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules usually open a year in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many groups book their Summer vacation rentals during Christmas and Thanksgiving get-togethers. Book before these holidays for best selection.
- Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner if your group qualifies for a special rate.
- Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer guests an option to obtain vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any days missed as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for specifics.
- Many management companies supply Charleston area area visitor guides that include money-saving offers, either offered directly by local businesses, or by way of a partnership between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.
Finding the best vacation home:
- Start by having your group commit to the best dates and a max budget.
- Decide how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your group needs. Charleston 1 BR loft Prime Location in heart of historic downtown 1 block away has 1 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms.
- Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed types is commonly available online. If you don't see them listed, reach out to the host before reserving your rental. Remember that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which often includes pull-out couches. You will need to establish what is suitable for your vacation.
- If there's an individual Charleston area attraction you long to visit, keep an eye out for properties that are either close by, or those that cater especially to your needs.
- Suitable accessibility can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. Confirm all necessary amenities are available before reserving a rental
- If your family is traveling with pets, you will need a property that allows animals. Make sure to ask for specifics on breed, weight, and type restrictions. Note that some property owners charge additional pet fees.
Tips to have a wonderful stay:
- Review arrival and departure procedures before traveling. Add a note with the directions to your phone, and take a printed copy.
- To make sure that damages aren't linked to your family's stay, note any problem areas upon your arrival. E-mail the host right away to relay your findings. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having a record of problems and contact attempts will be valuable.
- Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, elevator or kitchen appliance. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief text message can prevent quite a few concerns.
- Respecting quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay more pleasurable. You'll enhance your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are usually a great resource to find the best local beaches and hangouts.
- Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Residents can usually help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to grab the best tacos, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for bird watching?
- Protect the property owner (and your things!) by locking the property when you are out, just like you would at home.
- Double-check every room of the vacation property to confirm that you've packed everything at departure. Remember to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden treasure. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
- Go through the rental a final time and scan for damage. We suggest inspecting the property with the host whenever possible. If the manager is not available, remember to take photos and video of the property to record its condition.
- Leave a review! Property owners rely on good ratings to inspire more reservations. They'll be thankful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something wasn't as described, other vacationers will appreciate that you share your experience find their best vacation home. Be fair with your review. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the manager could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to fix it.
