The next step was a reception location and room accommodations for guests. Charleston was too far and so I turned to my parents for help. They found the Best Western Sea Island Inn... More

This was a wonderful experience. The location of this hotel was is walking distance of many great restaurants and shops. Plus the view of the Bay of Beaufort was spectacular. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The hotel maybe a little dated but that adds to the southern charm. I will stay here again.

Ideal location for a very reasonable price. Staff is very courteous and professional. Always stay here when in Beaufort area. Accessible by car or boat. Be aware, no elevator for second floor rooms and bathroom is very small.
