Folly Beach is a dynamic vacation spot perfect for watersports, sunbathing, sailing, boating, fishing, and much more. The minimal choice in bona fide hotels in Folly Beach shouldn't deter anyone from visiting. There are only two choices in Folly Beach hotels with only one directly situated on the beach itself. However, there are an incredible array of nearby options to choose from in Charleston, the closest major area to Folly Beach. Mainly a residential area, Folly Beach is flanked with hundreds of private condos and private vacation rentals which offer a wider variety of lodging options.
The Water's Edge Inn is one of the two Folly Beach hotels to choose between for anyone wanting to be near the beach in a regular hotel. Designed more as a quaint bed and breakfast than a regular hotel, guests will find that all the little things about the hotel make it a hotel of distinction. Egyptian cotton sheets cover each of the comfortable beds throughout the eight available guest suites. Flat-screen TVs, wireless internet, and fireplaces translate into a haven of comfort and convenience. Though Folly Beach, one of the most popular South Carolina beaches in the area, is a few minutes away by foot from the Water's Edge Inn, the sheer closeness of the ocean translates into vacations full of fun beach activities. Both bicycles and shuttle transportation are available to guests heading to the beach. Complimentary evening cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, as well as the outdoor shower, hot tub, and plush robes provided to guests mean you'll be wrapped in luxury during your entire stay. Being one of the closest Folly Beach hotels to the ocean, and with so few rooms, be sure to book well in advance for your getaway.
