Check in was great with Ally. We came at a busy time when happy hour was getting started, but Ally and her trainee Elaine were very welcoming to us. They told us about different places in the city to visit and answered all our questions. We stayed in the Hemingway room which was absolutely beautiful. It had a large screened...

On a scale from 1-10, this place is an 11! I've never felt more at home at a place. The facilities are well maintained and updated. The owner seems to only be a phone call away. This place is a short walk to the water. After a long day on the beach though, it was so convenient to make one...

Water's Edge Inn is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Folly Beach. The room was spotless. The bed was very comfortable. Happy hour is a fun touch. The continental breakfast looked good too. We opted to eat at local restaurant, because we heard so many good things about Lost Dog Cafe. I would happily stay here again!

This was our second stay here and we were very impressed. The hospitality is second to none. Having a golf cart ride anywhere you want to go is great. Happy hour (3 hours long) cannot be beat! We will return.
