We had a nice stay. We checked in early with no problem. That gave us the opportunity to visit friends without a fully loaded vehicle and have to unpack after dark. Richard, on his John Deere chatted for a while about anything we asked before we went visiting. The quiet was unusual but welcome for tired travelers. In the morning... More

We stayed two nights and the hotel was pretty nice! We arrived late and the owners arranged to leave a key and had the ac on. The room was clean, not a 5 star hotel, but very quiet. This place is awesome if you are looking to do any kind of fishing out boating, this place is ideal! They have... More

Our experience with the Core Creek Lodge was a mixed bag. My husband and I went to Beufort for the first tie for Pirate Weekend. Knowing that we would most likely be paying more a night than usual due to the event weekend. However, double the price for this unit was really not worth it. I think their typical pricing... More

Thank you for your review. It is always helpful to hear how our travelers see us and to know how to improve. Pirate weekend is a big event in our area, but unlike other places to stay we do not alter our prices to take advantage of travelers. We do however establish a minimum stay on certain holiday weekends of... More

Our family stayed and rented two rooms. We found the facility to be well cared for and clean. The prices were one third of typical Beaufort motels with only a 10 minute drive from the Beaufort Waterfront. This provided an adventure for us, we booked late on same day during summer season and we were unsure how it would work... More

My husband and I stayed July 14 & 15 with our 2 dogs. We had a nice spacious room. Everything was very clean and comfortable. We like the location they have a marina there as my husband likes to fish so when we go back he can take his fishing gear. We already reserved our week in October to return... More

A college friend of mine and I were in Beaufort for a wedding this past weekend and chose Core Creek Lodge because it was SO much more affordable than anything else we could find. We paid $280 for 3 nights, and the cheapest thing we can find besides that was about $500, since it's prime vacation time. In spite of... More

I visited with my family the beginning of June. We brought the family dog. It cost extra completely understandable. The room it's self was clean, but the floors forever had sand on them. They had that cheap linoleum that you find in a school. The walls were legitimately ply board covered with tin-table primer. Every time I exited the shower... More

First, thank you for selecting Core Creek Lodge for your overnight stay. We hope your pet enjoyed his/her stay as well. Our lodge is a rarity in this area for being pet friendly. To accommodate pets, the owners made the decision to keep some of the rooms with the original flooring for easy cleaning and maintenance. I am sure you'd... More

My husband, 13-year-old daughter, and I stayed on the floating condo at Core Creek for the weekend. We loved it! It had everything we needed and more. We would get up early to see the fishing boats and yachts go by for a day on the water. Our last morning there, we were lucky enough to get to see a... More

All I can say is COMPLETE AND UTTER NIGHTMARE! This reminds me of the "no tell motel" teenagers used to hang out at. it is way off the beaten path.
