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... More

I chose the Best Western Sea Island Inn for the location near the waterfront park and was delighted with the whole experience. I had great conversations with the staff and got good tips about exploring the Beaufort area. And I loved my room - second floor balcony; good amenities (wifi, desk, microwave, fridge) and comfortable bed. And as I hoped,... More

This hotel is located downtown historic Beaufort. Just a block from wonderful waterfront restaurants and shops. Room is clean and a quiet location. Make sure you do not walk the riverfront after dark for security reasons we were told by our friends that live here

Thank you for the review. We are lucky to have such a perfect location close to everything. I think your local friends may have overstated the danger in the park after dark. Please so come see us again! Lisa Kassuba More

Great place to stay. Courteous staff. VERY convenient to great restaurants and beautiful views. Small quiet hotel. Breakfast area was very nice and roomy. Usually very tight spaces in the "free" breakfast areas, but not in this case. Clean, comfortable room.

We were lucky enough to get the last room so that we could stay and continue to enjoy Beaufort, SC for the first time. The location is great, looking out on the marina park and steps from popular Bay Street. The rooms were clean and larger then many other hotels. The staff was friendly and offered to help us with...

No complaints just not 5 star. Nice property. Very accommodating for a short stay. Close to everything. Good sized room. Would recommend and stay there again. There is a pool too. Free breakfast in morning was nice and the veranda off of it overlooking the bay is quaint.

Decided when coming to my sons graduation to stay off the main strip so I could enjoy the charm of Beaufort. The location was excellent directly across from the water and I could walk to restaurants and great shops. The hotel is very clean and the staff is excellent. Breakfast opened early to accommodate the graduation schedule. Surrounded by beautiful... More
