    « Lucked out »

    We were so fortunate to get rooms on our impromptu visit. We stopped by this property without a reservation, and due to a cancellation, were assigned adjoining rooms for our large family -- perfect! It was wonderful to be able to walk around historic Beaufort, enjoy a fabulous waterside table dinner (recommended by the hotel staff) and sleep comfortably. The amenities were top-notch, breakfast was great and all of the staff most pleasant and helpful!! We will definitely return!

    « Exceptional staff, outstanding hotel »

    The manager Lisa was outstanding. We stopped in to inquire and were thinking about several other options which were priced less, however she was so kind and helpful (the hotel was booked except for the two rooms that we needed for our family) that we decided we would just stay and we are so glad we did. The rooms were very clean, the breakfast was perfect and the breakfast staff (and all other staff) were extremely courteous and helpful. The pool was great too, very clean. We also needed special accommodations for some frozen items we had and Lisa took care of it so we did not have to worry and could just unpack and relax. The location is fantastic. After we unpacked we walked along the river front and though the very quaint downtown area then stopped for dinner. We also strolled through the surrounding neighborhood which was storybook charming. This should be the top rated hotel in this price range for Beaufort.

    « Excpetional customer service! »

    We lost our car keys and the desk person, Lisa, was really helpful. She made phone calls for us and gave us toiletries since we had no access to our luggage. If I ever get stuck in a city again and have to stay overnight unexpectedly, I hope to get service as good as this. Oh, and the room was quite nice and clean and the breakfast was better than average for this price range.

    « Marine Corps Graduation Week »

    This was our second stay for USMC graduation. Great location! The hotel is a short drive to Parris Island. A nice variety of restaurants and a waterfront park are within walking distance to pass the time between graduation week activities. The staff could not be more helpful. Parking is plentiful and the facility is well-kept .

    « Good 3 star hotel »

    Nothing super fancy but its clean comfortable and quiet. Can't ask for much more in a 3 star hotel. Could use updating but then it would cost twice as much. I'd rather keep it just the way it is. Cheers

    « Great Location »

    We enjoyed our stay and really loved the Beaufort area. I appreciated the front desk giving us a list of restaurants and things to see in the area. The bathroom was small in room 140 though I appreciated the deep soaking tub after being on the road over a week. Room 140 had a safe though we didn't feel the need to use it. The sweet lady in the breakfast room made the stay very pleasant. Cleanliness quite good at the hotel. Bed very comfortable. At check in we were offered two queen beds so I reinforced we asked for a king bed. Since I also wanted a quiet room it caused some juggling.

    « Beautiful town for anniversary trip »

    This is a nice 2 story hotel. Room and bathroom was very clean. Only problem with bathroom is it was small. Not much room to sit toiletries. They have a very good breakfast with many items to choose from. Was right across the street from water and park. Enjoy out 2 night stay.

    « The place to stay in Beaufort »

    Excellent hotel situated in the heart of Beaufort with easy walking access to restaurants and shopping. The location is good for short drives to the beach and other places. Across from the waterfront park where one can walk, enjoy the sunset or relax on the patio of the many restaurants parking is great, rooms are clean and well maintained, staff is friendly and helpful. Definitely will stay here again.

    « Reunion Trip »

    The stay in Beaufort was the first since being stationed there in the 70's. This stay was actually nicer than the reunion its self in GA. I don't think putting a minimum requirement on any reviews is proper.

    « Our three days in Beaufort »

    The BW is the ONLY place to stay in Beaufort. You are right across the street from the starting point for all the tours, and the beautiful walkway along the water. If you blink, you'll drive right by this gem of a hotel. Unimpressive from the outside, but clean and updated inside. Frig and M/W in room, and safe for your valuables. Breakfast buffet opens @ 6:30; good spread.

    We traveled to see some friends and they recommended staying there since it was by the water. It was very nice place , everyone was friendly the breakfast was good, you could walk across the street to the water and there a nice park and some places to eat , would definitely stay there again.

    « Great Location!! »

    This is an exceptionally well run motel, with friendly and courteous staff. The location is perfect as it is extremely convenient to everything. The rooms are dated but very clean, with free internet, small refrigerator and coffee makers. The free breakfast, in the morning, is one of the best we have experienced.. They also have bikes available to rent, at a cost of $10.00, for half a day.

    « Great hotel, great location! »

    Title says it all! One block walk to shop and food. Bay view, across street from marina and kiosk for horse drawn carriage tour ride. Comfortable locale. Room rate a little on the high side, but worth it!

    « Fabulous stay...Colleen at desk is amazing... »

    Loved our stay. at Best Western Sea Island Inn..walking distance to great restaurants.. Colleen at desk was charming and so helpful. Breakfast was so good and breakfast help so kind. Make sure you take in the Kazoo factory while you are in town. Do the tour...so so fun...and you get to make your own kazoo.

    « Fantastic!!!! »

    This hotel has a location that can't be beat. Check-in with ?Big Bob? was quick and pleasant. The lobby is stocked with fresh coffee, cookies, and individually-wrapped snack bars all the time. The rooms are fairy simple but very spacious, very clean, and nicely decorated. They don't have elevators so if you don't want a room on the second floor just mention that before you arrive and they'll be happy to accommodate. The free breakfast is impressive because it isn't just bagels and muffins; rather, they serve all the normal stuff plus hot eggs, bacon or sausage, waffles, biscuits, potatoes, and fresh fruit. My favorite part of our stay was talking with Evelina, who works in the breakfast room! We would definitely stay here again!!

    « Worth the Drive off 95 »

    Arrived after 8 PM with no reservations. We were greeted with a smile and a very friendly manner. Room clean and had all the amenities that you could need. Breakfast included with hot and cold choices. Really liked staying on first floor with vehicle parallel parking close proximity to room. BW located across from the marina. No question, I would stay here.

    « Great Stay for Parris Island Graduation »

    Highly recommend this hotel located in the historic area of Beaufort. Check-in was a breeze and the hotel provided us with a graduation packet full of helpful info. Rooms were comfortable and spotless. In room fridge was very convenient to have. One of the best continental breakfasts I've ever seen, large selection, all fresh, and service begins at 5:30am giving you time to have breakfast before heading over to Parris Island for family day and graduation. About a 15 minute drive from Parris Island, the location is wonderful. Across the street from Waterfront Park and walking distance to main street of town with lots of little shops (most close by 5:00pm) and restaurants. Also noticed bike rentals and carriage rides, all within walking distance. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful which was really nice after a day filled with lots of people and activity. Although you need to check out before leaving for graduation ceremony (unless you're staying another night), they will allow your Marine to use their facilities to change out of uniform if needed. All in all, a great stay. Only one small issue with the hotel keys not activating which was quickly corrected and the folks at the front desk were as helpful and friendly as could be. Would stay again and recommend to others.

    « Perfect Place to Stay for Parris Island Graduation »

    This hotel really took care of us. They reserved several rooms together, changed dates with ease, released rooms we didn't need, made us feel loved and valued ---- they even saved us a Beaufort Gazette when we called from PI and couldn't find one. Location was great with lots of things to see within walking distance and fun places to eat. Enjoyed watching the boats from the swings across the street. They really made our experience even more special, took care of things we didn't even know we needed, and helped us celebrate our Marine! And, they let us come back to change clothes before the long drive home. Thank you and we would definitely stay here again.

    « Perfect Location w Great Prices & Rooms »

    Located on Bay St. in Beaufort, has easy access to shopping, restaurants, historical sites and beautiful views of the bay and ancient moss-draped oaks. Rooms were quite nice, although not spectacular, but a bargain for the price. Definitely will stay here on our next visit.

    « Wonderful Place »

    We enjoyed our 2 night stay here at Best Western Sea Island Inn. Check-in was easy and so very friendly. We were given maps, and any question we had was answered. The room was clean and had convenient areas...including an extra nook for p/c use or whatever, as well as a desk. Location was perfect! Across from the marina and horse and carriage, an easy walk to shopping and restaurants. Breakfast was excellent, in beautiful room with plantation shutters and delicious selections, hot and cold. The breakfast hostesses were so friendly and caring. The pool wasn't open, but looked inviting! We did need to do laundry, and were informed we could use the marina laundry located across the way. Easy and worked for us, as the front desk even had rolls of quarters available for purchase for this purpose. This was one of our favorite hotels along our route.

    « Great experience! »

    They accommodated early check in, gave me a map of the area and off I went. Lots of places to eat in walking distance, across the street from the riverfront. Nice pool area. Breakfast area was big with a lot of choices. Coffeemaker in room which is a big plus. Felt very safe walking at night. Rooms are definitely not soundproof, not a huge deal with me being a heavy sleeper. Horse drawn carriage ride across the street was very informative and a lot of fun.

    « A great choice »

    We chose this hotel based on its excellent reviews, and since we were in town to attend a boot camp graduation, it's proximity to Parris Island. We found it to be clean, quiet, comfortable, and conveniently located to everything. The staff we encountered were friendly, efficient, and extremely accommodating. This is especially true of the women who staffed the breakfast area and the front desk in the evening. They were outstanding! The one and only negative occurred when we returned to our room one day to find that the maid had not shut our door tightly and it was therefore left wide open the entire day. Luckily, nothing was missing, and the front desk staff, we feel, went above and beyond to compensate for this mishap. Overall, a very good choice!

    « Beautiful city, great people, waterfront. »

    We were there to see our grandson graduate from Marine Boot Camp at Parris Island. The weather was unseasonably cold but when the sun came out it was bearable. It was such a wonderful hotel with the absolutely nicest staff, I can't say enough. We have already made reservations to go back in the spring and early summer. It is a beautiful setting one block from the waterfront. The complimentary breakfast could not be beat. Our whole family was there and they were kind enough to give us adjoining rooms. My husband was not well, trying to recover from the flu so we didn't have the room serviced on one day, but they were so cooperative and kind. It can't be beat. Just steps away is the town with many great shops and restaurants, all backing up to the water. You won't be disappointed.

    « Our son's Marine Graduation »

    We had a wonderful experience at this hotel!!! We needed a hotel for our son's Marine graduation and this hotel was perfect. While the design is older(looks like an historical part of Beaufort) the rooms are very clean, updated and comfortable. We arrived after a very long drive with a sick child, and were greeted by Colleen..who is amazing!!!! She offered us ginger ale for our son and was so helpful!! She even made several restaurant tips when I asked. The next day, I ran into Colleen and she asked how our Family Day was and even asked if our other son felt better. The complimentary breakfast was perfect and they opened it early for Family & Graduation Day. You can easily walk (2-3 mins) to many nice restaurants. If you can't decide which hotel to book for graduation...pick this one you won't be disappointed!! This is the view across the street.

    « We stayed at Best Western Sea Island during our son's graduation week from Parris Island »

    BW Sea Island is NOT a fancy hotel; however, it IS a very nice, very clean, comfortable hotel with a competent and NICE staff from the front desk right on through housekeeping, maintenance, etc. The location is outstanding - right on the water, easy walking distance to shops and restaurants and less than 20 minutes to Parris Island. A self serve breakfast buffet is served every morning with everything from cereal and fruit to pancakes, pastries and waffles. During our time there we had a chance to look at some of other area hotels that we almost chose and never regretted choosing this BW. I highly recommend it for anyone going to a Parris Island graduation or just visiting the Beaufort area. Tom A.

    « Nice location »

    Nice location, across the street from the piers, makes for great evening strolls. Also convenient to other area restaurants and nightlife. The room was clean, bed comfortable and well maintained. A bit pricey for the area, but not totally out of line.

    « Lovely Spot for an Inn »

    This is an older inn near the armory and far away from the busy streets full of motels and fast food. Close to the water with many old growth trees covered with Spanish Moss. The area is quiet, easy to walk in and restful. Our king room had plenty of space to move around and space for our items. We felt comfortable in the room. The TV could be larger and the cabinet is certainly large enough to accommodate a larger set. The breakfast room is lovely - bright white and clean. You feel as though you are in a charming restaurant. The view across to the water is special too.

    5
    « Centrally Located within the Historical District of Beaufort »

    We had the pleasure of staying at this Inn for two nights while visiting Beaufort SC. It is nice to leave your car and just walk to the many fine restaurants located nearby. This is the advantage of staying at this Inn. In addition, to properly see Beaufort one needs to walk the streets to view the many antebellum houses within the area. Being downtown provides this convenience and opportunity. The hotel room was modern and clean. We had two Queen sized beds, refrigerator, microwave and security safe. If you are a Best Western card member you can obtain a discount. Included is a wonderful hot and cold breakfast. Hot scrambled eggs, bacon and potatoes were my items of choice. My wife had the typical healthy items of fruit and cereals. The hostess of the breakfast room was just delightful. She made our morning. The two desk guys we encountered, Big Bob and Buddy were professional and very helpful . Hint.... Request Room #200...the only room with a view of the harbour located across the street. We also had the nice sunsets. We recommend this place as choice one when visiting Beaufort SC.

    « Epitome of Southern Hospitality »

    Jan 3rd - 4th. We found this hotel looking for shelter under borderline emergency conditions in the brunt of Winter Storm Grayson. We could not have found a more welcoming and courteous staff. From Buddy at the front desk to the attendant at the continental breakfast, and all the way up to the manager that ran out in storm conditions to make sure the guest all had something to eat later for lunch/dinner. They all aimed to please and went the extra mile.

    « Not disappointed! »

    This was our second trip to Beaufort, after falling in love with this city a couple years ago. We were worried that our expectation would be too high, having had such a wonderful trip last time, but when we checked into Sea Island Inn, we were not disappointed. We did check in a tad early, and waited about 15" for a room but it was worth it. We got our same room, on the end with a view of the bay...it's lovely, although the walls are a bit thin. Fortunately our neighbors were not horribly loud. This hotel is right in the downtown bay area, within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Really the best place to stay. There's a pool and breakfast in the a.m., neither of which we tried out this time around. The only drawback to rooms on the second floor is that there is no elevator. So we had to schlep 50 pounds of luggage up a flight of stairs.

    A quaint and aged hotel, but nice and clean. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Great stay, great people. First BW i've stayed at that offers fresh made omelettes in the morning.

    « Decent hotel with nice staff in a great location »

    We enjoyed our recent stay at the Sea Island Best Western, in Beaufort SC. Staff is quite nice and the included breakfast is better than average too. The location can't be beat - right in town with an easy walk to everything. The hotel exterior fits well with the character of the downtown area. The rooms, however, are in serious need of a refresh. Grout and caulk is failing in the bathroom, and the daily cleaning crew tries to keep up - but they are losing the battle. Beds are comfortable, but decor is very dated. If hotel was a few miles out of town, it would be not acceptable. They are clearly taking advantage of their location. Something for you to consider before you book here - would you prefer more updated or right in town? Room itself would be rated poor, with location as very good - therefore average overall. BTW - if you have 1-2 people to a room instead of 3 or 4, I recommend you consider City Loft instead - as location is just as good yet rooms are far more up to date.

    « Marine Graduation Stay »

    We were in SC for my son's graduation from Parris Island. It was a very enjoyable stay at the Inn and very convenient to get to the base. We were able to enjoy the town while we were there. The restaurants were conveniently located - a short walk from the hotel.

    « Great stay for PI graduation »

    We were extremely happy with our room. Very clean and well appointed. Check in was very easy, clerk was very welcoming and nice. Only utilized breakfast once as we left very early for PI but they did start it early to accommodate families leaving so early. We just chose not to go, but it was great the day we went. We would definitely stay there again! 10 mins to PI gate, about another 7-10 mins to drive to the We Make Marines sign, visitor center to park so plan accordingly.

    It's obviously an older property that has been very well updated and maintained while still keeping some of the older charm. If you are looking for luxury and lots of amenities, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for comfort, charm and a great value, it is perfect!

    I was in Beaufort for my niece's boot camp graduation (surprise surprise) and reserved this hotel months prior. Little did I know that it was the night of the tree-lighting ceremony in Beaufort. The trees is right across from the hotel. The hotel rooms are comfortable and clean, internet worked fine, breakfast was well-stocked with everything you could imagine. The reception area was homey with cookies and coffee 24-hrs a day. Just a quaint little place across from a beautiful walk along the water.

    « Great experience with Best Western Sea Islands Inn »

    Booked the Best Western Sea Islands Inn in Beaufort SC to take the family to Christmas festivities in Beaufort. Typically we stay at the pricier inns in Downtown Beaufort and decided to give the more reasonably priced Best Western a chance. The location is key; it's the only real option in that price range that's right in the heart of the historic district. Not needing the car for the entire visit was great. The hotel itself was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful.

The hotel staff was so helpful with a wealth of information about the area and gave us a graduation packet with maps of the island, graduation schedule, directions, etc. It is a beautiful, quaint town with wonderful shops, restaurants, and people. DO NOT MISS THIS. Very affordable. 10 minutes to Parris Island. Walk to all of the sites.

    « A Great Stay for a Moderate Price »

    The tone for our stay was set when I first checked in. Colleen, our check in person, was extremely upbeat and very attentive to our needs and paid special attention to the details. After settling in our room, Colleen called to ensure we were happy with the room and all else associated with our stay. She even made reservations for us to a local restaurant. The breakfast was outstanding and there was sufficient variety from which to choose. The room was on the top floor in the back side of the property which was great since we did not hear any noise from the main street emanating from in front of the hotel. Highly recommend the Best Western Sea Island Inn.

    An awesome place to stay!!! Nice big clean rooms! The beds are comfortable. The staff is so nice and helpful! It is right across the street from the bay, with a place to sit outside and watch the boats. Lots of places to eat within walking distance. You can rent bikes to ride around town, take a walking tour of the old homes and history of the area, and across the street is a carriage ride that you can take for a 50 min tour! This is well worth the price and I would recommend this hotel to everyone!

    Entering the lobby of this attractive hotel is like going into someone's home! The staff were very helpful and the rooms very clean. The breakfast is top of the line for hotels in this range. Because the hotel is so popular it is advisable to book well in advance in order to get the type of room you want. The hotel is within walking distance of the tourist shops and restaurants and convenient for trips to the Hunting Island Park and Beach.

    Beaufort exudes southern charm: Ancient Live Oak trees tower over antebellum homes on brick streets. There are upscale shops, interesting restaurants and a beautiful waterfront park, perfect for watching boats come and go or watch the sun slide into the marsh. The historic portion of the city has avoided the monotony of chain restaurants and coffee bars so as to preserve their local and unique vibe. If you are a bookaholic don't miss Nevermore Books, a mix of old and new books cleverly displayed as well as collectible vinyl records. The city needs a better hotel selection. There are several B&Bs, but visitors who prefer a hotel have limited options. The Best Western is the premeir location for walking this very walkable city. It's staff is friendly and informative. And it has ample parking. However, the room was dim, low wattage bulbs in lamps made reading difficult. The AC filter needed changing, and room smelled of cigarette smoke and mildew. From the balcony along the second floor guests see the standing rainwater on the flat roof below, perhaps the source of the moldy odor. The value in this hotel is found in its location and its friendly staff.

    « Sweet Accomodations in Beaufort »

    Although I stayed only one night in the Best Western Sea Island Inn, it was so nice that I wanted to write this review. Check in with Buddy was friendly, very efficient, and he was so helpful. When I made reservations for two rooms for one night, I asked Buddy if he could recommend a nearby restaurant for a special birthday celebration. He did just that, and we had a lovely evening at Plums. The Sea Island Inn is so quaint. It was very clean, and the staff very friendly and helpful. Buddy allowed us to check in early, which was a huge help on a rainy day. Our beds were very comfortable, and the rooms were clean and well appointed. The architecture of the inn, as well as the decor of the rooms fits so nicely with the area of Beaufort, and there is a kind of vintage feel, with up to date beds and bright rooms. Complimentary breakfast was on point, with good food, and a wide selection of items, both hot and cold. Location is ideal for walking around Beaufort, both in the lovely residential areas, as well as the shops and restaurants on Bay St. We very much enjoyed our one night there, and definitely plan to return again. This will be my "go to" place from now on, on my visits to Beaufort.

    This hotel was really superb! Very clean, comfortable, attractive rooms. We were especially impressed by the complimentary breakfast which included eggs, omelets, sausage, biscuits, hash browns, and many other breakfast items. Definitely more than the usual continental breakfast. Plus the dining room had a view of the river along Bay Street. The hotel is a few steps away from the downtown area with numerous restaurants and shops as well as the waterfront park. A great find! Price was very affordable!

    We were very pleased with our choice of hotels while attending our Marine's bootcamp graduation festivities at Parris Island. It was a quick 10-12 minute drive from the hotel to the Island. Very convenient since you have to be up and over there at the crack of dawn. The rooms were nice and clean, the location was perfect (walking distance to restaurants, shops and waterfront), and the employees were the nicest you'll find. Breakfast is included, and although we didn't partake, my parents did and they said it was very good.

    « Great location to nice coastal town »

    We felt like we had the best hotel location possible in Beaufort. The Best Western was not right on the water, but about a block away from the marina and a nice park with swings for adults overlooking the water and a playground for the kids. We were on an upper level facing the parking lot. I don't think there are any views of the water from any of the rooms, but I didn't find any hotels that did. Nice restaurants and shops all around. We were somewhat disappointed that the shops closed in the early evening on a Saturday, as we arrived in the evening and were only staying one night. There were a few ice cream shops open and restaurants, thankfully. The rooms in the hotel are small and not very bright, but clean enough and with fridge and microwave. Doors are on the outside, which isn't typically my favorite. However, the design of the hotel has a wrought iron look to it, so somehow that made the doors on the outside not so bad! Our eight year old enjoyed the pool, which is outdoors in a courtyard area. The fitness area was very small and musty. We just walked into it, did not use it. We slept well and the complimentary breakfast was one of the best complimentary breakfasts we've had, with plenty of hot, cold and fresh items. Staff and service were terrific. Very friendly. If we come back to Beaufort, we would consider staying here again.

You simply must dine at Plums and the little Cafe on the corner beside the Sea Island Inn was very good as well. The staff at the Inn were so friendly and helpful.

    « Great location but.... »

    Let me start by saying the staff is fantastic! We were treated like royalty from the minute we checked in. The housekeeping crew always kept the room spotless. The complimentary breakfast was great and the staff made sure that there was always fresh food at all the stations. But...this is an older property. The rooms are nice but quit small. My biggest problem was the monster in the wall that masqueraded as an air conditioner. It ran all night long, was very loud and blew cold air directly on me. There was no way to re-direct the air flow. If I tried to turn the temperature up it wouldn't come on and the room became hot. Changing the fan speed did no good. I ended up making a wall with the extra pillows that kind of worked. The location is perfect if you want to explore downtown Beaufort. You are close to several great restaurants and some nice shopping. The property is right across the street from the marina and Beaufort's beautiful waterfront park.

    Stayed here one night when in the area visiting friends. Wonderful location and within walking distance to cute downtown area. The marina is right across the street and nice to be able to sit outside and jut watch the boats. The room was nice and I found the bed comfortable. Big plus was the tub drained properly as the previous two nights at other establishments did not. The one thing I didn't care for too much was I had booked my room through Expedia like I usually do, and at check in was told to just call hotel directly and not go through booking.com or Expedia. Last I checked I was a grown woman and I will do what I see necessary. Now another approach would have been suggesting to call the hotel and not reprimand me for how I booked the room. Would I stay here again? I would.

I walk in telling her how the day had not gone well with weather, accidents and being late everywhere. That I had not had water or food all day. She hooked me up to my room so I could clean up. I came back and told her I hit something. She was so concerned about me and worried. She sent me to get food and ask me to check in with her when I got back. When I finished dinner I stop in and she was glad that I made it ok. She gave me a care package for the next day with food and water. I felt like she went above and beyond. The room was great clean and relaxing. I went up took a hot shower and off to bed. The temp in the room was good. The next morning I went down for breakfast. I was running late and breakfast was almost over but I was able to get a few things. I went up stairs to find out my key was not working. I went down.

    This Inn was cute and clean. My main issue was the check in. I was told the room would definitely be ready by 3 pm. Upon arrival at 2:35 the man at the check in desk informed me the room was not ready and I would need to drive around for 30 minutes until it was. There was no cleaning staff near the room so I am not sure why he would state the room was not ready. When the hotel was called a few minutes later I was told the room had been ready for a while??????? I had my elderly mother in the car so this was very inconvenient after a long drive.

    My husband and I spent 3 nights at Best Western Sea Island Inn in Beaufort at the end of a vacation celebrating our anniversary. The room was very comfortable and immaculate - a reflection of their wonderful housekeeping staff. The location is fabulous - nestled into the historic neighborhood, very short walk to the charming town and to historic landmarks. The staff is absolutely amazing. Warmest greeting ever came from Ellison upon our arrival. The overall warmth and hospitality of both Colleen and Ellison at the front desk are unsurpassed. You would think it was their family business! They were like two concierges, printing directions, directing us to area attractions, etc. When Colleen heard it was our anniversary trip, she made a beautiful card for us on behalf of the hotel, complete with a bow and complimentary use of bikes to visit the Spanish Moss Trail. How very kind and thoughtful she is! Breakfast was always yummy - hot buffet, fresh berries, and other great selections. Catherine, our breakfast hostess, kept the area in tip top shape. The buffet was constantly freshened, and she was a ray of sunshine in the room. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit Beaufort. It is a good value, and the staff goes out of their way to ensure a wonderful stay.

    We were only here for one night, but were very pleased. Coming by boat and docking at the city marina made this hotel the perfect place to stay since it was right across the street from the marina. Check in was super easy and the employees were very friendly. Spent a little time in the swimming pool which was very clean. There were even pool noodles for the guests to use. A nice little surprise. The room was a good size and very clean. The bathroom was a bit small but like the room, very clean. The breakfast the next morning was nice. There were biscuits, sausage, sausage gravy, bagels, pastries, fruit, cereal, yogurt, coffee and fruit juice. And the young lady that was working there (I think her name was Catherine?) was a great asset to this hotel. She was constantly making sure everything was stocked and clean. She walked around and asked guests if they needed anything and even removed dirty plates from the tables for people. I hope management realizes what a great employee she is. The only negative of this hotel was the fact that there was no elevator. Carrying luggage and coolers upstairs is not fun. But like I said in the title, would definitely stay here again!

    This motel is quite old and is showing its wear ? small rooms, very small bathroom, outdated entry and a TV remote that worked when it wanted to, no amenities for handicapped visitors, which were requested in advance. This alone would render a 2 star rating at best. HOWEVER, ?Big Bob? at the checkin desk went out of his way to get a portable toilet seat raiser and a bathtub bench and three others of the staff also provided assistance, Buddy, Ellison and Collette. For that I raised my rating to 4 stars.

    This hotel has one of the most friendly staff I have ever experienced. It was obvious they valued our business and strived to make our stay a wonderful experience! I highly recommend Best Western Sea Island Inn when visiting Beaufort, South Carolina.

    We had a great time during our recent visit to Beaufort. If was a special trip for my 85 year old mother, and the staff at Best Western Sea Island Inn couldn't have been more helpful. They gave us the best room in the hotel and made sure we had every thing we could need to have a nice time. While the building is old, they have taken care to make the rooms comfortable, clean and inviting. And you can't beat the location - right near the river, the historic district and downtown shops and restaurants.

    This hotel is right on Bay St within walking distance of almost anything you want to do. Nice rooms. The only drawback was the commode. Really low to the floor and jammed against the wall. I would not let this keep me from staying here again. The staff was awesome. Really good breakfast with hot items every day.

    This hotel was highly recommended to us by our friends -- and they were absolutely right in their assessment. The room was clean and a good size (we got a room with two queen size beds). It included a microwave and small refrigerator. The beds have firm mattresses, which is what we prefer. The location is EXCELLENT -- once you arrive you can walk everywhere you want to go. Parking is free. Our room was nice and quiet -- even with a window open. The front desk staff person was very friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants. They also have some brochures there to help you enjoy your stay.

We were walking distance to all the stores restaurants and marina. He took an informative carry cry and I lovely boat ride for $20 each. It was the end of our stay and we would look for a laundromat in the front desk gave us bags and detergent for the laundry across the street at the Maria.

    « Best Sleep at a Best Western! »

    Best Western Sea Island Inn, Beaufort, SC is an excellent hotel. I highly recommend it. From the moment you see the beautiful brick building, wrought iron fencing, and honeysuckle crawling up the sides you feel good about your choice of hotel. But, it only gets better once you see the room. Very clean and the bedding is all white which means you'd be able to see any stains, etc. The bedding was immaculately clean as well. The bed itself was very comfortable and the comforter and pillows were top grade - ones I"d have at my house. The hotel staff was very friendly and any questions we had were answered right away, coffee ready to go early in the morning, in-room coffee pot and coffee, ironing board, and hair dryer! The hotel was quiet at night. We were there for my son's graduation from MCRD and a lot of other visitors were too but it was quiet by 9pm. Within a couple of blocks are shops with art, food, ice cream (excellent ice cream, by the way). Within 6 minutes you can be at Dockside (excellent sea food). You can be at MCRD Parris Island withing 20 minutes (and it's just a couple of turns and you're there - not hard at all). I will stay at this hotel anytime I am in the Beaufort, SC area.

    When my husband was planning this trip, he called the hotel to ask about availability and rates. Buddy, the assistant manger explained that a group had just walked in to check in and if he could call my husband back, then a few hours later, he called back! Unfortunately, the only room available was a queen room but Buddy said that he would try to upgrade us when we arrived. Upon arrival Buddy and his assistant were unable to upgrade us to the king room and were very apologetic. We completely understood as it was the beginning of Spring Break and a very busy time. Buddy took the time to tell us about some places to see in the area, told us about the breakfast in the morning and gave us a great walking map of the historical homes near-by. They were friendly and efficient. My husband and I had a wonderful stay and can't wait to come back and spend more time. We will definitely stay at the Best Western again! Its perfectly located within walking distance of everything, the rooms were very clean and comfortable and the building was quaint.

    We were in Beaufort for a wedding and stayed at this hotel. All of our experiences with the staff were positive, pleasant, professional, and friendly from making reservations, checking in, and checking out. We had the corner room (200) with several windows and a view of the bay. The room was very nice, but we did laugh about the bathroom. It looks like the installation of the commode was an afterthought, but we managed. We appreciated having a refrigerator and bottled water and plenty of bathroom supplies. The refrigerator doesn't have a freezer for our freezer packs, so we got ice for our small cooler. When we checked in, we received information about the area, and there were also cookies and candy available in the lobby along with newspapers. The breakfast room is very pretty and has ample choices even if you are on a low-carb regiment like me. Thanks for that! We and our friends enjoyed sitting outside at the tables overlooking the bay while we ate breakfast. This hotel is in such a good location that we walked everywhere. Walking to the shops, restaurants, and waterfront were enjoyable. Thanks for a terrific stay!

    Needed a get-a-way and chose Beaufort, SC from our "to visit" list. Chose the Sea Island Inn based on Trip-Advisor reviews. Beautiful location, right in town, and right by the water. Check in was a breeze, very welcoming. It was a haul getting our luggage up to the second floor but we survived. Room a bit smaller then we imagined. Was spotlessly clean, much better then pretty much any place we have stayed ever. Bed was ok, could have used a cushy topper for added comfort. Also, a comfortable chair for reading would be nice but not sure the size of the room would support it. Had trouble with my room card key, husband did not any problem so I'm not sure what the problem was (kept it away from my cell phone). Front desk was quick to fix it each time. I thought the breakfast selections were great, husband a bit pickier.

    We traveled to Beaufort by boat with a group of 12. We booked our rooms here because of the location near the marina. We are so glad we did. It is an older hotel, but everything about was excellent. Every employee we met was so friendly. The rooms, while not lavish, were spotless. The bed and pillows were wonderful. Again, simple, but clean and nice. We used the pool and they had towels, floats, tables and chairs. Pool was extremely clean. We all enjoyed the breakfast the next morning. Good variety of hot and cold food. They had eggs, sausage, breads, waffles, fruit, juice, and many other items. Again, everything was spotless and the people were friendly and helpful. With all of this, you can walk to all the shops and restaurants in Beaufort. You can also walk across the street to the docks or the wonderful park right on the water's edge. One thing, make sure you bring your camera!

    « lived up to it's reviews »

    My wife and I chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and it lived up to them. It is probably in the best location of any lodging facility for anything in the old city - restaurants, shops, and the riverfront. Nothing is more than a 10 minute walk. Several nice restaurants with outdoor patios with nice river views are 2 to 3 minutes away. While the hotel is older it is well maintained. Everything looked fresh and the furnishings were modern and in great shape. King bed was very comfortable. Breakfast area is large for a hotel with a view of the bay area and a better than average selection of items including several hot choices. Only drawback is the small bathroom which has almost no counter space. Several small shelves for toiletry items would make it much more user friendly. Regardless, we would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend it to friends.

    « Extremely Pleased!!! »

    We stayed at the Best Western Sea Island for a long weekend getaway to celebrate our anniversary. Originally I had been looking at a couple of bed & breakfast inns that looked amazing along with this hotel & another one that all were in the same downtown area. We really wanted to be able to walk around the water front & Bay St. areas without driving & having to find parking & make our little trip as relaxing as possible. I waited for several days after first looking at all the inns trying to decide on which one & then finally decided on one of the bed & breakfast inns & it was already booked. So I then by the recommendation of a friend & also reading multiple great reviews booked a room at the Sea Island & what a great choice it ended up being. We were extremely pleased with every aspect of the inn. It had been completely redone at some point & was immaculate both inside the rooms & all the outside areas as well. The rooms are not overly large but they are comfortable & well appointed. I am extremely picky when it comes to hotel rooms & it doesn't matter the price range there are some that have not been as clean as I would've appreciated but that was not the case here. The front desk personnel were incredibly nice & helpful also & made you feel right at home both checking in & out. They also had a very nice continental breakfast included in your stay that offered a couple of hot dishes too. It was not anything fancy but had many options that definitely were plenty for us such as cereals, yogurt, fruit, waffles that you could make, juices, coffee & a variety of teas, bagels, pastry, eggs, sausage & gravy biscuits, etc & was kept spotless by a very friendly attendant. There was also a beautiful pool that we enjoyed after dinner a few evenings & it was impeccably clean as was the pool area. We highly recommend the Sea Island & on our next visit to Beaufort we definitely will be staying here again.

    Staff very friendly, Comfortable King Bed. Safe environment for single traveler. Restaurants, shops, beautiful water area across the road, great for walking/running, Most things in close proximity to the hotel. I was pleasantly surprised that I could rent a bike at the hotel. So I did. I traveled during the Water Festival, and the area was very pedestrian friendly.

    Very nicely maintained hotel in the heart of the historic district. This is the only hotel within walking distance of the historic waterfront. The only pool in the historic district. Easy access to shops restaurants and the waterfront. Hotel is two story older (built in the 50s) brick but very well maintained. I know because the staff is knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. The lemon water in the lobby is a welcome treat when returning from an outing during a South Carolina coastal summer. Breakfast is nicely laid out with good variety for a stay lasting several days. Comfortable beds. Easy access to the rooms. The hotel and the area feel very safe.

    We thought this hotel was great location, right across from dock, beautiful sunset area. Several restaurants steps away. No beach near. Very clean place, small, quaint.

    The location is perfect, the breakfast is really good, the rooms are lovely and clean. Everyone we encountered was professional, helpful and positive. All in all, this was a very positive experience. The only suggestion I have is the addition of two comfortable arm chairs in the room. The ones there now aren't all that comfortable. The beds, however, are very comfortable.

    Stayed here on two separate occasions in the past week. Overall the rooms were clean and comfortable. The AC works good but is a little noisy. Beds and pillows were comfy. Bathroom was a bit tight as well as the small counter outside of bathroom, but this is largely due to the hotel's age and design. Big plus for the hotel's great downtown location, complimentary beach pass, free breakfast and pleasant staff.

    My husband and I came to Beaufort on a 3 night weekend getaway and we were blown away by the friendly and accommodating staff. We were treated as if we were at a small B&B but with all the amenities of a larger inn. We told the folks at the front desk that we were headed to the beach for the day and, before we knew it, they had offered to lend us beach chairs, towels, and a Hunting Island Park Pass. You never expect to get that kind of personal service at a 'chain' hotel. It is quaint, incredible location, and price can't be beat. We can't wait to return.

    My husband and I spent one night here on our way to Hilton Head. Check in was friendly and efficient. As we knew there are no elevators so it was a little tricky getting our heavy suitcases upstairs. The room was small and old and I found the bed uncomfortable. The sink was so low that it was uncomfortable to use (and I am not a tall person). The proximity to the town and waterfront is excellent. Note: when I called the hotel to reserve I was told there was a 2 night minimum stay. I was able to book a single night online.

    Came to visit the lovely Beaufort on a whim, and called the Best Western from the welcome center. The price was competitve, but what we were the most thrilled about was the location. Right in the middle of things - restaurants, walking by the water, historic sites...truly amazing.

    First of all do not go through a online booking to book this place. Went through kayak, who went through hotels.com. Messed my reservation up.

    I was very happy with our stay at the Inn. Parking was near our room and easily accessible. Beautiful location across from the bay and close to Parris Island where we attended Marine graduation. The room was immaculate and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was great. The staff was extremely friendly and helped out whenever we had a question. After inquiring at the front desk about the closest beach, I was provided with a parking pass for Hunting State Park and was able to take my daughter to the beach where she was able to see her first view of the ocean. I have no complaints and I would definitely choose this as the place to stay should we be back in South Carolina in the future.

    This hotel is so well-located in the historic district - across the highway from the Chambers Waterfront Park and an easy walk to Downtown stores and restaurants, historic churches, and streets lined with live oaks and beautiful antebellum homes. Also has quick and easy access to the highways for visiting the sea islands. Rooms are large and well-appointed; breakfast, in a sunny room in an adjacent building (or outside at umbrella-shaded tables) offers a good selection and is well-stocked even for late arrivals. The staff is very welcoming and helpful, with info about places not always highlighted in the guide books. The pool area is attractive, private, and very pretty. An excellent choice for our visit to Beaufort.

    I cannot say enough good things about the Best Western Sea Island Inn. EXCELLENT customer service. From the time we were greeted by the gentleman at the front desk when we arrived late afternoon, to the check out on Sunday, the lodging experience was very, very nice. This is an older motel that has so much charm. The room was clean and cozy and had the basic amenities. The breakfast was awesome. There was sausage, hash browns, eggs and the fruit and cereal type items if you like lighter fare. I was full! I had a nice view with the oak trees and the marina across the street. My room faced the main street (Bay Street). There are plenty places to shop and eat that are easily within walking distance. The hotel also has bicycles to rent at a nominal price. You can also catch the horse and buggy rides across the street for a historic tour of the downtown. Everyone was in a festive, yet respectful of neighbors mood, as this was a Marine base graduation weekend. Also, the front desk has many suggestions about the local events and things to do in Beaufort. For example there was a historic, Spanish galleon available to tour and a community gathering in nearby Port Royal that was recommended. The experience was very family oriented and nice with local vendors and music bands. I will DEFINITELY stay here on my return visit this summer.

    « Great bang for the buck »

    Impeccably located on Bay Street, the main drag of one of the Southeast's most delightful small cities, this comfortable, immaculately kept inn is, in one direction, a few steps away from a bucolic water side park with old live oaks, and in the other direction, mere steps from an array of curio shops, galleries, appealing taverns and at least two or three excellent restaurants. Park your car and stroll. Other than a pricey B&B nearby, it is the only inn to inhabit Bay Street, and by far the best value. The portals to the beautiful neighborhoods and gardens of residential Beaufort are less than three minutes away on foot.

    Attended the Marine graduation in Parris Island and selected this hotel in Beaufort. It's just a short drive to the Marine base. All were very accommodating, even offering breakfast at 5:30 so we wouldn't miss the motivational run which is not to be missed. Breakfast was plentiful. They even gave us a packet explaining what to expect each day at the base. It is situated along a beautiful waterway with wonderful restaurants where you can eat outside and enjoy the beautiful view. The town itself is very quaint. We had a terrific stay and we certainly picked the perfect place to stay.

    If you want to explore historic downtown Beaufort, this is a great place to stay. It's located right on the main street, across from the water. It is a vintage style motel with 2 stories and exterior porch walkways. The pool, rooms, grounds and common areas are in excellent condition, the parking is convenient, the staff is smart and efficient and the complimentary breakfast is ample, fresh and served with good coffee. The guest rooms are decorated in fresh, updated, southern preppy style and very clean. My stay spanned a Monday and I noticed a crew steam cleaning the carpets and flipping mattresses in several rooms in what looked to be a regular maintenance regime. The wifi worked well, there are bikes you can use to ride around the downtown and good choices for dining within walking distance. There is a promenade walk and park along the waterway right across the street. I would certainly stay there again and I do recommend it.

    We stayed one night on way back from Florida. Our room faced the bay (second floor), and it was nice sitting on the bench outside to enjoy the scenery. Note that the rooms in the front (ours was 214, same as a previous review) do not have windows looking out towards the bay as the bathroom was in the front and windows looked out in the back over the parking lot but also viewing some historic buildings and Spanish moss. The room was pleasant and clean but overall more like a 2 star (or 2 1/2 star) than a 3 star. Call the hotel direct to get the best room. Pricing is reasonable considering the location and competitive with other hotels in the area, but Beaufort is on the pricey side considering that it is not a large city and only one home is open for tours. You're paying for the ambiance and peacefulness although traffic can be heavy on the main streets. Also see my review on Emily's.

    « Exactly What We Needed »

    My family and I were in town for my oldest son's Marine Corps graduation. Several things drew me to this hotel. The first was that it was recommended in several facebook groups for Marine Moms, the second they gave a discount if you were there for a USMC graduation. Third, they were in a great location, I wanted to be near the historic district so we could walk and see some of the wonderful historic homes. The last reason was the great reviews here on tripadvisor. The price was very reasonable, the staff super friendly. I stayed with my husband and 16 year old son. We had plenty of room, the room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. I'm very picky about what I consider clean, I looked over the room before taking in our luggage and I didn't have any concerns. The breakfast (free) was nice. Something for everyone, hot and cold offerings. The down side I found, which the hotel can't really do anything about, was the children running and jumping around in the room above us. Luckily they settled down before we decided to go to sleep. 4:30 am comes quickly and I needed all the sleep I could get. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

    We chose this Inn based on reviews and were not disappointed. The young lady at the check in desk both evenings was extremely helpful and courteous...probably the sweetest we have ever seen in many years of travel. The location was perfect for a leisure walk along the waterfront or leisurely stroll through town. Restaurants were lovely. Overall a wonderful experience and would highly recommend this Inn.

    Spent one night along with another couple in 2 rooms; motel gave us connecting rooms which was great for watching the Super Bowl together. Motel was well kept, attractive, had very comfortable beds and located within easy walk to restaurants and shops. Nicest Best Western motel we have stayed in and certainly would recommend to others and would stay there again when in the area.

    The room was well maintained and the beds are comfy. The hotel staff was super. They gave us a packet of information about graduation and had directions for anywhere you wanted to go. Even better, they arranged for a late checkout so my Marine could take her first long hot shower in 3 months. They are very sensitive to their guests needs. It is the only outdoor access hotel I would ever consider staying at again.

    My daughter and I spent a wonderful and fun weekend in Beaufort at the BW Sea Island Inn.

    After checking around on hotels, we decided on the Best Western in Beaufort , South Carolina. The price with our HOG discount was the deciding factor. When we arrived the lady at the check in desk was great. She knew we were coming in for our son's graduation and gave us all the info we needed. The stay was great . Perfect location in the historic district and very close to Parris Island. We highly recommend.

    A wonderful Best Western. Sandwiched between a lovely bay and gorgeous southern homes. Plus you are steps away from an artsy southern charm main street. Staff was beyond pleasant.

    I arrived as a wedding guest. This establishment was recommended by the bride and groom. It was 2 block away from the church service and 3 block away from the wedding reception. The water was across from the hotel. The staff was very accommodating. I requested directions to the church and reception and was provided a nice walking map. The front desk was extreemly helpful in suggesting local merchants during my short stay. The room was very clean and updated with comforts of the south. The bed was extreemly comfortable. The weather was unusually cold but the room heating system was excellent. It was very convenient having a small fridge and microwave in my room. Highly recommended if ever in the Beaufort , SC area.

    My family of 4 visited Beaufort this past weekend & stayed 2 nights at the Sea Island Inn. The location was perfect! You can walk to restaurants and tour the historic district. We stayed in a bottom floor double room. The room was very clean & the beds were comfortable. The small refrigerator & microwave came in handy. The only downside was that the room was a little small for a family of 4, but this was a minor issue. The staff was excellent & tended to our needs. The free breakfast was a little more food than a continental, but good & fresh. The tables & room were very clean. When we return to Beaufort we will be staying here again!

    My husband and I were looking for a hotel within walking distance of the restaurants and shops in downtown Beaufort. Best Western Sea Island Inn was the most convenient and reasonably price place to stay. The hotel is older, but very well maintained and updated. The hotel clerk was very helpful and friendly. The room, with a king bed, was very clean, roomy and comfortable. Everything you could need was there in the room. But there were some very nice touches made this hotel extra special, two complementary bottles of water and jar of hard candy. What great ideas! I would definitely recommend Best Western and would stay here again.

    « Great room »

    The bed was comfortable and pillow assortment was good. Our room was ground floor corner and was reasonably quiet and free of traffic noise. Someone mentioned an omelet station, but it was not an omelet station with someone making fresh to order omelets. Rather it was probably instant eggs with cheese in the fold. However, that said, they weren't bad. Both turkey and pork sausage was offered along with great coffee, biscuits, muffins, fresh fruit, assorted juices, yogurt, pancakes, and a variety of oatmeals. It was clean, well stocked, and tables were wiped. Great breakfast considering it was free! We loved the location as it was well within walking distance to the historical district, so our car remained parked 90% of the time. We would return with no reservations.

    excellent choice to stay if travelling on I-95. Could not find a place to pullover late on a sat night and had a carload full and wanted to stay in a safe area. All other reviews in the area did not look good but this Best western was an excellent choice. Although it is 20 miles off 95, it was not a big deal. The price was about $135/nt but worth every penny.

    The folks at Sea Island Inn go out of their way to assure that guests have an outstanding visit. Rooms are quiet, clean, with 'fridge, microwave, good in-room coffee. It's in town, so you can park your car at the hotel and walk to everything in charming downtown Beaufort. There's always coffee and tasty cookies available in the reception area. Breakfast is in a separate building (where you can sit outside in nice weather) and breakfast is very good, with a large selection including omelets. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

    The staff was very kind and helpful, both when I spoke to them in advance and when I was on property.

I appreciated the packet given to me with information about the graduation ceremonies at Parris Island, as my niece was graduating that week. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was also very good.

    « Great location, nice staff but noisy guests »

    We stayed a Friday and Saturday night in this almost "waterfront" motel style inn. The staff were at all times helpful and friendly and even though we didn't arrive until 1am on the first night we were warmly greeted. I liked the situation of our room on the second floor overlooking a quiet street at the back of the hotel. The good things end there. The room was spacious but dark and at all times we needed lights on. It was also poorly ventilated with only one openable window. Friday night was generally quiet but during the evening we could hear other guests toilets flushing - they we really loud - and on the Saturday night we were woken at 3am by noisy next door guests returning from an event. We asked for help from the night reception to little avail - the TV and loud talking kept us awake for 2 hours. Breakfast was self serve on disposable plates and was average and the internet was complimentary and fast. Sadly I'll remember this stay for the noise and poor sleep we endured and would be reluctant to recommend a stay here.

    We stayed for 5 nights here in town across from the marina that is on the inland waterway. The location is scenic, close to the highlights of the city-historical district, art galleries, and the water (we walked everywhere); had to use our car very little.- there was a surry/bike rental nearby and we only used our car for island exploration and to go to a restaurant for dinner a couple times. The breakfast bar was more than adequate-it was like a large breakfast that served as brunch for us and we only needed one other meal a day. The staff at the hotel were very accomodating to us and our wheel chair bound family member-get the handicap room for that type of need.

    We decided to stay at the Best Western Sea Island Inn because of its proximity to the waterfront and its great reviews on Trip Advisor. Though nothing fancy, the room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. We were given a first floor room at the back of the property, just across the street from the Rhett House Inn. The room was quiet and, although the door opened to the parking lot, we felt safe. A nice complimentary breakfast was served in a large and cheery room across from the lobby. It was nice to have more space than one usually encounters in hotel breakfast areas. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful. We would certainly stay here again if we are ever lucky enough to revisit beautiful Beaufort.

    « Perfect Location / Professional Service »

    We stayed here 2 nights before moving across the street to the Rhett House. After the 4 nights in Beaufort, we had serious remorse for leaving the Sea Island Inn. This motel is run like a tight ship, with precision, & high standards. You are handed brochures & maps going in, and on checkout, handed more for your next destination. The room was nicely decorated with everything in working order; and quite clean. Breakfast is served in an auxiliary room that provided whole fresh fruit, an egg omelette, a protein, make your own waffles, & yogurt, plus all the general choices. Not exactly like home but does the job just fine. The building is brick, so I can't imaging being bothered by traffic unless it was totally booked. Directly across the street is the location to pick up a carriage ride or in season boat trips. If the world was supplied with Sea Island Inns of this caliber, traveling would be a much nicer experience. Thank you!

    Our family just attended my grandson's Marine graduation in Parris Island, SC and stayed at the Best Western Sea Island Inn in Beaufort, SC. We all agreed we could not have chosen a better hotel for our 2-night stay in beautiful Beaufort. Not only did we receive a Marine family discount, but hotel management put together a packet for us with an itinerary for Family Day and recommended times of departure from the hotel for the Moto Run on Thurs. and graduation on Fri. The continental breakfast was amazing. Not just your typical coffee, juice, cereal & danish, but all of that and so much more... waffles, sausage, omelets, yogurt, fresh fruits, biscuits-n-gravy, WOW!!! Also, being so close to the base took so much pressure off of our family being on time for these very important events. I highly recommend this hotel:)

I had great conversations with the staff and got good tips about exploring the Beaufort area.

    We were very pleasantly surprised by this Best Western Property. It looked like a brand new hotel yet has operated for many years. It is right across from the beach and pier and just at the end of the main street of Beauford.

    We always stay at the Sea Island Inn when visiting Beaufort, SC. The service is great. Location, location, location!!! If you look out back from the motel, you see historic homes. If you look across the street, you see the marina. The waterpark is nice and we love to sit in the swings and watch for dolphins. The town of Beaufort is just a few steps away from the motel. Across the bridge is the best seafood at DOCKSIDE. (Get the shrimp-n-grits). The beach and Hunting Island State Park is a few miles away, but worth the drive. We learned all this information from the staff at the Best Western Sea Island Inn and they were right!

    « Great value, location »

    This is an excellent location and price for people like me who are weirded out by B&B lodging. B/c there is no shortage of pricey B&Bs in Beaufort. And most of the other hotels/motels are located well outside of walking distance north of town. This place is located right on the marina within easy walking distance of some of Beaufort's best restaurants, shopping, and historic homes. My wife and I had to tack on an extra day after Charleston got pummeled by bad weather and the reservation was made seamlessly over the phone. Buddy at the front desk was extremely helpful upon check in with maps and dining recommendations. Per my other reviews, I did not partake in the pool or exercise facilities so I cannot comment. Room was what you would expect for an older facility. Bed was comfortable, hot water, clean, and had a fridge and microwave (for some reason I like having both). The other big selling point was the above average complimentary breakfast--not just the usual scrambled egss, etc but they had potatoes with bits of sausage one morning, actually good biscuits and gravy the next. Drawback was there was that hint of that older motel smell either coming from A/C or carpet. And there was some street noise from idiots blaring their stereos while driving by but this ceased around 10PM--our room was on the wing facing Bay St. I would go back in a heartbeat and recommend this to others with similar preferences.

    Beautful place, extremely nice town and friendly people, not only at the Best Western but overall. The room was adequate and clean, however if you need an electrical outlet in the bathroom, ask for a room other than 103. It is the only one without an outlet in the bathroom. It is the first room on the block and just a few yards from that unbelievable waterfront park, so it was fine. A bit pricey for us, but the location could not be beat.

    Top location and a facility which tries a lot harder than most chain operations. Large, clean, well serviced room and lots of nice little touches including helpful guides to local buildings and the area. Breakfast is pretty much what you expect in this type of operation but that's not a complaint. I was surprised to be allocated a room at the back, right on the street side, given my card status and the that we had a three night stay booked over nine months ago. Changed upon request to a room facing the sea but should I really have had to ask?
