The property is clean as well as the room. The bed and pillows were also very comfortable. The entire staff was friendly and most helpful. The continental breakfast was the...

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...

The staff was exceedingly friendly. IZO, the young lady who checked us in, was very helpful in her restaurant recommendations. The central location of the hotel made it possible for us, as senior citizens, to easily walk to all the Beaufort restaurants and attractions that we were interested in. The free breakfast was very good and was served in a...

We enjoyed several nights at the Sea Island Inn. The room was clean and quiet. The location was perfect, just down the street from downtown and across from the bay. Staff was friendly. Wouldn't change a thing.

Everything about this hotel was just great! Rooms were very clean and up-to-date. Employees could not have been nicer. Since we were that to see our son graduate from Parris Island, the folks at the front desk gave us a great information package about family day and graduation. Great restaurants and shops just around the corner. Parris Island is a...

Beautiful exterior. Professional, nice and helpful staff. The beds are a bit uncomfortable but overall worth the money. The location was convenient to Parris Island. The breakfast area is open early enough to make the island in time for motivational run. The breakfast area is locked so you have to have a room key to get in.
