About Matt Eldridge

I was born in Charleston. After graduating from The College of Charleston, I left Charleston, traveling and working at several resorts along the way. After two years and living in several different states, I realized what a special place Charleston was and decided to return home.

I took over as Innkeeper in 2012 after a successful career in sales and have loved it ever since. The best part of what I do is having the privilege to meet many of our guests who have traveled from places near & far to enjoy the city I love.

Matt Eldridge purchased this condo in 2007

Why Matt Eldridge chose Charleston

We love the Cannonborough-Elliotborough Neighborhood, which is located just west of Upper-King Street in Downtown Charleston. We purchased the property in 2007 as an opportunity to carefully renovate a unique Charleston home; bringing it up-to-date, while restoring it to it's original glory. It's been fun to be part of all the exciting changes that have taken place in the area over the years

.

What makes this condo unique

While extensive renovation of the property was completed in 2008, we worked hard to preserve the original character that gives it historic significance. We added modern conveniences, such as marble countertops, custom cabinetry throughout, new appliances in the kitchen, laundry facilities, upgraded electric, plumbing, and central heat & air. We carefully restored hard-wood floors, repaired crown molding and the diamond-grid windows. All of this allows are guests to stay in comfort in a property that has been part of Charleston since 1910.

The Rutledge Avenue Inn is owner-operated.

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

The unit is large and newly renovated. It's close enough to King St. to be a quick drive without all of the noise of staying on King St. Matt is very responsive to whatever you need, and he's extremely nice. The parking space for unit D is hard to park in, but we got the hang of it. Also, we were on the 1st floor and could hear the people upstairs walk across their unit. So, bring your ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. But, the unit was beautiful, and we'll definitely stay here again if we go back to Charleston.

Charming and spacious

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Charleston and wanted to be close to everything. This condo was amazing. We walked everywhere we needed to go, saw amazing historical venues. The condo had all we needed and a very comfortable bed for sleeping. Matt was very helpful with anything we needed. The location was quiet enough and friendly. For breakfast, we only had to walk across the street to the Hominy Grill. By the way, if you are a dessert fanatic, this is the place to get the best homemade desserts to make your mouth water. We enjoyed the many parks nearby and felt safe everywhere we walked no matter what time of day or night. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Very clean and comfortable. Close to historical Dist.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Very clean, comfortable bed and furnishings. The only issue was parking for unit D and if you have a small car shouldn't be an issue. If the spaces next to you double park and don't move all the way up you will have a difficult time. Super value, nice owners. I will rent again.

Great location and very updated

  • 4 of 5

Great location and the parking spot is a must have. The Inn is very nice and key pad entry is a modern convenience. We stayed in "D", however I might prefer to be in the upstairs unit, as we could hear ever footstep and conversation of the upstairs guests. The pullout sofa is not adequate for an adult. Consider sleeping one person directly on the sofa. Overall, this was the nicest place I have stayed in Charleston. In this case "historical" doesn't mean old and uncomfortable. Very nice place!
